Marpa :

A set of thirteen B/W notecards drawn by Robert Beer that depict some important lineage masters from the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist traditions. These notecards come with envelopes, and are machine creased so they can be coloured with fine-line pens, crayons or paint before folding. Each card has a short biography of the lineage holder or guru depicted.

Marpa, the translator (Tib. Lotsawa), was a Tibetan disciple of the Indian Mahasiddhas Naropa and Maitripa. He made several long journeys to India, collecting and translating many important tantric texts into Tibetan. Marpa was the founder of the Tibetan Kagyu lineage, and his most prominent disciple was Milarepa.
