LIFE STORY OF TSONGKHA PA

Saturday August 27, 11:00-12:00pm

Please join Geshe-la for an introduction into the life of Lama Tsongkhapa. 1357-1491. Founder of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. Tsongkhapa, also known as Je Rinpoche, meticulously set forth the graduated stages of the path, and how one established oneself in the paths of sutra and tantra.

Tsongkhapa promoted the study of logic, encouraged formal debates as part of Dharma studies,and instructed disciples in the Guhyasamāja, Kalacakra, and Hevajra Tantras. Tsongkhapa's writings comprise eighteen volumes. These 18 volumes contain hundreds of titles relating to all aspects of Buddhist teachings and clarify some of the most difficult topics of the teachings. Tsongkhapa's main treatises and commentaries on Madhyamaka are based on the tradition descended from Nagarjuna Of Lama Tsongkhapa's major works among them are: Major works among them are: * The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (lam rim chen mo), * The Great Exposition of Secret Mantra (sngags rim chen mo), * Essence of True Eloquence * Ocean of Reasoning: A Great Commentary on Nagarjuna’s Mulamadhyamakakarika * Brilliant Illumination of the Lamp of the Five Stages / A Lamp to Illuminate the Five Stages * Golden Garland of Eloquence and * The Praise of Relativity * In addition to his studies, Lama Tsongkhapa engaged in extensive meditation retreats. He is reputed to have performed millions of prostrations, mandala offerings and other forms of purification practice. Tsongkhapa often had visions of Manjusri, with whom he would communicate directly to clarify difficult points of the scriptures. Tsongkhapa emphasised a strong monastic Sangha. With the founding of the Ganden monastery in 1409, he laid down the basis for what was later named the Gelug ("virtuous ones") order.
