Kanha or Kanhapa (Skt. Kāṇha; Tib. ནག་པོ་པ Wyl. nag po pa) was one of the two main students of the mahasiddha Virupa from whom he received the Lamdre teachings.

Virūpa's disciple was also called Kāṇha of Deliberate Behaviour (Tib. བརྟུལ་ཞུགས་ནག་པོ་པ, trulshyug nagpopa), he was also known as the Eastern Kāṇha, (Tib. ནག་པོ་པ་ཤར་ཕྱོགས་པ, nagpopa sharchokpa).

There is a second Nagpopa, Kṛṣṇasamayavajra, (Tib. ནག་པོ་པ་དམ་ཚིག་རྡོ་རྗེ, nagpopa damtsik dorje), whose real name is Śribhadra, and who is the source of one of the four Hevajra transmissions of the Sakya tradition.[1]
