The birthe of Tibet’s immortal yogi and saint Lama Tsongkhapa had been prophesied by Buddha Shakyamuni. The Buddha of wisdom, compassion and power (Manjushri, Avalokiteshvara and Vajrapani) incarnated in this divine child who by his genius, his exampkle of perfect balance of study and practice, his utter humility and boundless energy restored the holy Buddhadharma to its original purity and caused it to spread like wild fire all over Tibet, Mongolia, China and India.
Practising the mist profound tantric methods already at the age of five, having been given his ordination vows by HH the fourth Karmapa, Je Tsongkhapa went on to study at the feet of no less than forty-five Gurus of all existing traditions. After an eight year retreat, eating only one seed of a tree per day and offering 3.5 millions of prostrations and 1.5 millions of mandalas, many deities appeared to him directly and he remained in constant communion with Lord Manjushri for the rest of his life. Vajrayogini advise him to use the colour yellow for his teaching hat, and the lineage that originated with him has often been called ‘Yellow Hat School’ for that reason. Gelugpa – the pure ones – being the official name, Lord Tsongkhapa founded the three main monasteries of Gaden, Drepung and Sera whose many attained masters uphold enlightened tradition and share it with the world – now more than ever – wrote many texts unsurpassed to this day in depth and clarity, most famously his work ‘The Stages on thPasth to Enlightenment’.
Je Tsongkhapa’s Guru yoga meditation (Gaden Lhagyama) is open to all, easy and pleasant to do, yet infinitely profound. Healing of depression, restlessness and sickness, protection from negative energies, enhancement of intelligence and clarity, deep joy and peace are experienced by thoise who practice it,
