GADEN NAGCHU
LAMA JE TSONGKHAPA ANNIVERSARY 
 

 

Lama Je Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) was born in Amdo, in northeast Tibet. The master, Choje Dondrup Rinchen when learning of the miraculous events that occurred at Tsongkhapa’s birth, took charge of Tsongkhapa's education when he was seven, giving him many teachings and tantric empowerments. 

At sixteen, Tsongkhapa left Amdo to further his studies, studying under fifty teachers and gaining a wide knowledge of both sutra and tantra, being especially impressed with Dignaga and Dharmakirti’s system of reasoning. There followed an intense period of study and meditation, during which he experienced visions of Manjushri.

 

Gaden Nagchu celebrates the accomplishments of the saint and scholar Lama Je Tsongkapha and the numerous texts written in his lifetime.  He is founder of the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, built on the foundations of the Kadampa tradition, the legacy of Atisha.

Some of Lama Tsongkhapa's important works that students at LEW have studied include: The Great Exposition of the Stages of the Path (Lamrim Chenmo), The Essence of Eloquence and Eloquence on the Interpretive and Definitive Teachings .

His Holiness the Dalai Lama has praised Lama Tsongkapha's text as being the true essence of Buddhapalita’s work.  Having studied at Sakya, Kadam and Drikung Kargyu monasteries, he was one of the foremost authorities on Tibetan Buddhism.
