Gampopa, also known as Dakpo Rinpoche, is one of the most important figures in the Kagyu Lineage. The foremost disciple of Jetsun Milarepa, he truly consolidated the Kagyu tradition by integrating its' special teachings with those of the other main schools of Buddhism namely the Kadampa teachings prevalent during his time.
Gampopa was the founder of the monastic order of the Kagyu School and he founded the Dhaklha Gampo Monastery, where, throughout his life he continued his activities of teaching, meditation, and benefiting beings.
