 Nyingma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The name Nyingma means "old" or "ancient", as Nyingma followers maintain the earliest Vajrayana teachings (the other three schools are known as Sarma or "new translation" schools, having arisen from a second wave of translation).
Followers of the tradition are known as "Nyingmapa," "pa" being a common suffix comparable to "er" or "ite" in English.
From the 11th century onwards, the Nyingma tradition flourished along with the newer Sarma schools, and it was at that time that Nyingmapas began to see themselves as a distinct group and the term "Nyingma" came into usage.
