Here we will try to gather relevant articles (popular as well as scientific) relating very specifically to the following :

1) Establishing Marpa in his proper place within the Kagyu Lineage, thus using the force of history. 

2) as well as revitalizing the transmissions passed from Marpa to his pupil Ngog Chöku Dorje, especially with focus on 2 of the Ngok mandalas: the Hevajra (9 deity) and Nairatmya (15 deity).
