Naropa or Abhayakirti was a Mahasiddha who practiced Buddhism in India. According to some traditions, he was Niguma's partner or brother and Tilopa's disciple. Naropa, who lived simultaneously as Atisa, was a Bengali Shunri by birth. According to another source, he was born into a Kashmiri brahmin household. Selling timber was his line of work. Demonstrated independence from a young age and hoped to pursue a career in research and meditation. He consented to an arranged marriage with a young Brahmin lady out of deference to his parent's wishes. After eight years, they decided to call their wedding off and pursue ordination. Naropa enrolled in the renowned Buddhist University in Nalanda when he was 28 and began studying Tantra and Sutra. He had a reputation as a brilliant student and flawless debater, which was crucial at the time because the debate custom dictated that the loser became the winner's student by default. He finally earned the title "Guardian of the Northern Gate" after participating in numerous arguments, teaching, and winning over multiple pupils.
