Around when Marpa Lotsawa was in his 50s, He departed on a third and final voyage to India. Marpa received the final teachings and instructions which were the innermost essence in Pullahari Monastery. Marpa completed a further three years of training and Naropa formally declared Marpa to be His Dharma successor. Upon His return to Tibet, He gave Milarepa every initiation that He had received. Marpa worked very hard to establish the Kagyu lineage in Tibet. He spent many years translating Buddhist scriptures and established a Buddhist Monastery in Zanskar. He gave teachings and transmissions of the complete Buddhadharma to many students in Tibet, including Milarepa. Not only did Marpa translate Sanskrit to Tibetan, but He brought Buddhism to Tibet. Marpa studied, practiced, and translated for over 40 years to make His experiences available to others. Marpa Lotsawa passed away in 1097 at the age of 84. Master Marpa’s incredible selflessness, devotion, and wisdom continue to elevate Buddhists and Truth seekers.
