Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana or tantric Buddhism)

Gharbari or Dharmapa is the name of a mahāsiddha, of which eighty-four in total are recognized in Vajrayāna (tantric buddhism). His title is “the contrite pandita”. He lived somewhere between the 8th and the 12th century AD.

These mahāsiddhas (e.g., Gharbari) are defined according to the Abhayadatta Sri (possibly Abhayākaragupta) tradition. Its textual origin traces to the 11th century caturāsiti-siddha-pravṛtti, or “the lives of the eighty-four siddhas”, of which only Tibetan translations remains. Gharbari (and other Mahāsiddhas) are the ancient propounders of the textual tradition of tantric or Vajrayana Buddhism.
