Je Tsongkhapa Day Celebration
Special Event - Je Tsongkhapa Day Celebration
Tsongkhapa, usually taken to mean “The Man from Onion Valley”, was a famous 14th century Tibetan Buddhist teacher. His teachings are the foundation of the Buddhism we study today.
Tsongkhapa’s teachings are the first to be known for:
* Uniting Sutra and Tantra
* Organizing Buddha’s teachings into a graduated step by step path to enlightenment
Please join us for this very special occasion.
