History of Buddhism in India (Tib. gyagar chöjung; Wyl. rgya gar chos 'byung) is a text composed in 1600 by the great Jonang master Jetsün Taranatha. It is, together with Gö Lotsawa’s Blue Annals and Butön Rinchen Drup’s History of Buddhism, the main Tibetan reference on the history of Buddhism, particularly the Hinayana and Sutra Mahayana teachings, in its land of orgin from the time of the Buddha until its disappearance in the 13th century.
