2017 Tsongkhapa Day

Nov 21, 2017 | Views: 87

This coming Lama Tsongkhapa Day on 12 December 2017 (Tuesday), join us for a day of auspicious prayer and fellowship in Kechara Forest Retreat.

Lama Tsongkhapa Day or Ganden Ngamchoe is celebrated to commemorate the Enlightenment and parinirvana of Lama Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelugpa school of Tibetan Buddhism. It is an excellent day to engage in virtuous activities as all merits accumulated on this day are multiplied 100,000 times.

This year, take the opportunity to offer lights on behalf of your loved ones at the magnificent statue of Lama Tsongkhapa in ‘long life form’ in Kechara Forest Retreat. Not to mention making further light offerings at various holy sites around the retreat centre, including newly enthroned Buddhas Gyenze (for inner and outer wealth), Manjushri Nagaraksha (for powerful protection), Nageshvaraja (for potent purification) and Loma Gyonma (for supreme healing).

Who is Lama Tsongkhapa?

Lama Tsongkhapa (1357-1419), the patron saint of the Gelug lineage is widely known for his scholarly prowess, unwaveringly strong Guru Devotion and many great deeds. Of these, the most well-known are:

  1. Restoration of the Maitreya Statue in Dzingji Temple.
  2. Revival of the monastic code that was degenerating at that time, with the guidance of Rendawa and Chennga Chokyi Gyalpo.
  3. Establishment of the Great Monlam Festival in 1409 that continues to this day.
  4. Founding of Gaden, Sera and Drepung Monasteries, the ‘Three Pillars’ of the Gelugpa tradition.

This great saint led a life of the highest ethics, held his Vinaya vows perfectly and was instrumental in the revival of the Buddha’s teachings that were deteriorating during that period of time. At the age of 63, Lama Tsongkhapa entered into Samadhi meditation, made extensive inner offerings and then stopped his breath. Many witnessed his body transformed to that of a 16-year old with rainbow lights emitting from it. These signs are all hallmarks of an extraordinary being’s parinirvana.

So join us this coming 12 December to celebrate Lama Tsongkhapa Day and don’t forget to take the opportunity to generate tremendous merits for yourself and others. Offering packages can be invited on the day or pre-order from 25 November 2017 at vajrasecrets.com.
