Song Rinpoche ~ The great Tibetan master and practitioner of the wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden.

(Reblogged from self-assassin)
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.

Tilopa


Tilopa was a tantric practitioner and mahasiddha. He developed the mahamudra method, a set of spiritual practices that greatly accelerates the process of attaining bodhi (enlightenment), and is regarded as the human founder of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.

Je Tsongkhapa, whose ordained name was Losang Dragpa, was a great 14th century Tibetan Buddhist Master who promoted and developed the Kadampa Buddhism that Atisha had introduced three centuries earlier.

His appearance in Tibet had been predicted by Buddha himself.

Je Tsongkhapa patiently taught the Tibetans everything they needed for their spiritual development, from the initial step of entering into a spiritual practice through to the ultimate attainment of Buddhahood.

This was a golden age in Tibet, and thousands of Tibetans were inspired by Je Tsongkhapa’s immaculate example of pure moral discipline, compassionate way of life, and profound, liberating wisdom.

His followers became known as the ‘New Kadampas’, and to this day Kadampa Buddhists worldwide study his teachings and strive to emulate his pure example.

A Tribute To Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

dharma-thoughts:

Few Buddhist masters have had as extensive an impact on the Buddhist world at large than Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. With over 1,100 Buddhist centers (and growing) across both the Eastern and Western hemispheres, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso has brought the Dharma to places which may otherwise never have exposure to Buddhism.

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso is one of the last Greats, that last generation of immaculate teachers, scholars and monks who left Tibet and brought with him the perfect lineage of teachings that are being upheld today. Ordained since the young age of 8, Geshe-la studied for many years under the father of all Lamas today, H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, before he eventually left Tibet to live in India among the exiled Tibetan community.

Living in exile never deterred him from his practice and spiritual determination. Having brought only two Buddhist scriptures with him during his escape Geshe-la endured the hardships of a new country to settle into his monastery, where he taught and did retreats for 18 long years.
