Jamgon Kongtrul the Great, Lodro Thaye(1813-1899), was born in the village of Rong-gyap in Derge, in east Tibet. The coming of this great master was prophesized by the Buddha Shakyamuni, in the Samadhiraja-sutra, as well as by the Great Indian Vajra Master, Padmasambhava, in many of his termas (hidden teachings, for later revelation). He studied and mastered the teachings of the Buddha in general and tantrayana in specific including the Bon religion of Tibet. Among his many teachers, his primary teachers were the Fourteenth Karmapa, Kenting Tai Situpa Pema Nyinje Wangpo, the Great Khyentse, and many other masters of the time. He not only became one of the greatest masters and the lineage holder of Kagyu School but of all four Schools of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the Bon religion.

Lodro Thaye co-founded the non-sectarian movement in Tibet with the Great Khyentse in 19th century. He became the teacher of the fifteenth Karmapa Khakhyab Dorje, giving him the full Kagyu teachings. He is renowned as an accomplished master, scholar, writer, poet, and artist, and authored and compiled more than 100 volumes of scriptures. Among these, the best known is the Five Treasures, made up of:

Treasury of Kagyu Mantras¡]Kagyu Ngak Zod)
Treasury of Key Instructions (Dam Ngak Zod)
Treasury of Precious Termas (Richen Terdzo)
Treasury of Vast Teachings (Gyachen Ka Zod)
Treasury of Knowledge (Sheja Zod)
