Je Tsongkhapa lived in Tibet from 1357 to 1419. When he was born, special signs showed he was Buddha Manjushri appearing in the world again. Later, people understood that he held in his heart the wisdom, compassion and spiritual power of all the Buddhas. Guru Tsongkhapa had miracle powers, but he never used them in public or acted high or special. He was always seen to be humble, showing a perfect example of a Buddhist monk, and giving pure and clear Dharma teachings to help everyone. Through Je Tsongkhapa’s kindness we have Buddha, Dharma and Sangha in our life today. There is no one kinder than our Guru, Je Tsongkhapa!

HAPPY JE TSONGKHAPA DAY!!! Its October 25th and in The New Kadampa Tradition we dedicate this day to Je Tsongkhapa.
Je Tsongkhapa was an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri, whose appearance in fourteenth-century Tibet as a monk—and the holder of the lineage of pure view and pure deeds—was prophesied by Buddha. He spread a very pure Buddhism throughout Tibet, showing how to combine the practices of Sutra and Tantra, and how to practice pure Dharma during degenerate times. He is the founder of New Kadampa Buddhism.
