The Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism takes its name from the monastery founded at Sakya in south-western Tibet in 1073 by Könchok Gyalpo of the Khön clan, an influential family that had previously been affiliated to the Nyingma tradition.

The Sakya sect was given its definite shape by the works of the 'five venerable masters', Sachen Kunga Nyingpo (1092 - 1158); Sonam Tsemo (1142 - 1182); Drakpa Gyaltsen (1147 - 1216); Sakya Pandita (1182 - 1251) and Chogyal Phakpa (1235 - 1280).

 Don Croner's World Wide Wanders: Mongolia | Tibetan Buddhism | Sakya Pandita
At some point he sent a general (“Dorta the Black”) with the invitation to Sakya Pandita, who was at the time ensconced at Sakya Monastery, the headquarters of the Sakya sect, about 90 miles southwest of Shigatse.
The journey was arduous, and there were many followers of the Sakya sect to meet with along the way, but Sakya Pandita finally arrived at Langzhou in 1446 and on a day determined by astrologers was eventually presented, along with his nephews, to Köten in 1447.
Other observers have averred the that Tibetan Buddhism was still at that time greatly influenced by the ancient shamanism and animism of Tibet, and thus may have been more compatible with the belief systems of the Mongols, many of whom remained faithful to the shamanism and nature worship of their own ancestors.
