As a student within the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, it is important for us to learn as much as we can about the founder of our lineage, Lama Tsongkhapa. Here are some short stories and facts to share with you to build your knowledge as well as confidence in the practice you engage in on a daily basis. 

 

The Miracles of Lama Tsongkhapa

In the Root Tantra of Manjushri, Buddha Shakyamuni made a prediction about how Manjushri would later emanate as Lama Tsongkhapa:

After I pass away, and my pure doctrine is absent,
You will appear as an ordinary being,
Performing the deeds of a Buddha
And establishing the Joyful Land (Tushita), the great Protector
In the Land of the Snows (Tibet).

As Buddha predicted, Lama Tsongkhapa took birth in Tibet, the Land of Snows, where he lived from 1357 to 1419. During his lifetime, Lama Tsongkhapa established the pure Buddhadharma throughout Tibet without revealing many miracle powers openly but quietly clear miracles were observed by his close students. It is said that if Lama Tsongkhapa had displayed miracle powers and other forms of clairvoyance always openly, we would not have received much benefit from his actions today. Instead Lama Tsongkhapa compassionately showed us, through setting a pure example (morality) and teaching the Dharma – primarily the Lam Rim, Lojong and Mahamudra, how to enter an unmistaken spiritual path, how to practice the path comfortably and smoothly, and how we can eventually attain Enlightenment. Miracles by Lama Tsongkhapa are beautiful and inspirational. But stories on miracles will not bring us to enlightenment. Therefore Lama Tsongkhapa did not stress on miracles but the teachings of Lord Buddha to transform the mind, bring it to reality and to enlightenment. Because Lama Tsongkhapa focused on the practices, writings and teaching of Buddha, this is left to us today and if we study his teachings, we will definitely gain great knowledge and a complete practice to enlightenment. Lama Tsonghkapa’s true miraculous activity was to leave us over 18 volumes of writings from his knowledge and attainments. If we study this, we can gain high attainments. 

Although Lama Tsongkhapa never displayed any miraculous deeds openly, after he entered parinirvana legends arose of miraculous signs appearing around statues crafted in his likeness all over Tibet. In fact, there are eight particularly famous statues that have shown incredible signs to sincere practitioners. Lama Tsongkhapa’s images have shown many healing and miraculous signs. 

 

1. Je She Par Ma (The Venerable One who Disappeared with a Smile)

This statue was made by a sincere and humble practitioner who failed to find a statue of Lama Tsongkhapa for his retreat, so he ended up making a small statue to place on his altar. Every day, he treated the statue as if it was Lama Tsongkhapa, making offerings, prostrations and engaging in his meditations. One day upon arising from his meditation, he noticed the statue slowly melting into light. As he watched, he saw the statue suddenly smile as it rose into the air, then completely disappeared. He was surprised by the experience and for a long time he contemplated and eventually decided to tell his Guru about the incident. When his Guru heard the story, the Guru was extremely happy and told him to replicate the statue, which he did.

 

2. Je Nga Dra Ma (The Venerable One who is a Better Likeness)

 

3. Je Shen Pan Ma (The Venerable One who is More Beneficial to Others)

These two statues were made by two statue makers who were engaged in a friendly contest of measuring one’s craftsmanship. After they had completed crafting their best Tsongkhapa statue, they took it to a high Lama to determine who was the better craftsman. While the Lama was examining the statues, one of the statues spoke, “I am a better likeness”, then the other one said, “But I am more beneficial to others”. This was how these two statues eventually received their names.

 

4. Je Ku Thim Ma (The Venerable One who Dissolved into the Body)

This statue used to belong to Nyungna Lama, a devoted practitioner of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga. Everyday, he would regard this statue as Lama Tsongkhapa in the flesh and would go for refuge and dissolve Lama Tsongkhapa into his heart. Due to his sincerity and consistent practice, he developed a very pure heart and attained the special experience of concentration. It reached a point whereupon, while visualizing Lama Tsongkhapa dissolving into his heart, he felt that his statue had actually dissolved into him. Upon arising from his meditations, he found that his statue which was on his altar had completely vanished. After this, he attained much realizations. The news of this occurrence spread and the statue maker became famous for this incident. The craftsman later created another Lama Tsongkhapa statue, similar to the one that Nyungna Lama had owned.

 

5. Je Nam Pur Ma (The Venerable One who Rose into Space)

This particular statue belonged to a monastery where countless devotees would come to make offerings and prayers daily. There was one particularly sincere practitioner who would often see the statue rise into space and then return to the altar.

 

6. Je Tsong Poen Gelek Ma (The Venerable Chief Merchant Gelek)

This statue had been blessed by Lama Tsongkhapa himself, and it used to belong to one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s devoted students. One day, out of jealousy, a person stole the blessed statue and threw it into a river. The statue was thought to be lost forever until one day, a merchant by the name of Gelek noticed a bright rainbow appearing out of the river. He thought that it was an unusual sign and decided to spend the night nearby to investigate further the following day.

When he set out early the next morning to where he had previously seen the rainbow, he was surprised to find that the rainbow was still there! Convinced that there must be something special and auspicious present, he decided to dive into the icy river despite warnings from the local villagers on the dangers of the river. When he reached the bottom of the river, he found the statue of Lama Tsongkhapa, brightly radiating colorful rainbow lights. When he surfaced, onlookers were astonished that he had survived the dive and were even more surprised to see him holding onto the precious statue of Lama Tsongkhapa.

 

7. Je Tso Dog Ma (The Venerable One who Pacifies Conflicts)

There was a time when Eastern Tibet was plagued by a prolonged civil war. The local people, devastated by their losses and wanting the war to end decided to seek advice from a Lama, who was renowned as a great meditator. He instructed them to construct a large Lama Tsongkhapa statue and make continuous offerings and requests to the statue for the war to end. Determined to end the war, the villagers constructed the statue and did as the Lama had advised them. Not long after, the war ended and peace prevailed throughout the region.

 

8. Je Ling Pur Ma (The Venerable One Gone to Another Land)

This statue received its name after the much revered image mysteriously vanished from its monastery in Tibet. Various attained practitioners realized that it had taken its presence to a land far away, possibly in another dimension where the ground was laced with diamonds and where the beings that resided there had languages and customs unknown in this world. They also noted that the statue was benefiting the people of that land.

 

These are just a few accounts of the miracles related to Lama Tsongkhapa. In fact, there have been many more miracles experienced by various people throughout the centuries. This is Lama Tsongkhapa’s compassionate and wisdom-filled way to guide and show practitioners that the Dharma expounded by him, if practiced sincerely, can bring us to Enlightenment.

 

The Benefits of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Practice

The practice of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Gaden Lhagyama in the Gelugpa lineage originated directly from Buddha Shakyamuni’s time. Lama Tsongkhapa, who received blessings directly from Manjushri, passed the lineage to Je Sherab Senge, and through him the instruction flourished throughout Tibet over time. Because these Lamas came from a region called “Se” in Tibet, thus our lineage is called the “Segyu Lineage”. 

There are many benefits of practicing Lama Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga, and like any other practice, when done the proper way, we can harness its full potential. When we practice the Gaden Lhagyama, we should visualize our root Guru as being one with Lama Tsongkhapa, offer the seven limb prayers and the mandala offering, make requests through recitation of the Migtsema mantra, and engage in the visualizations in a meditative state.

When a sincere practitioner practices in this manner, they will surely experience the full benefits of Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. Here are the benefits to list just a few:

  • Pacifies negative karma
  • Pacifies obstacles
  • Increases merits
  • Increases life span
  • Increases Dharma realizations
  • Increases compassion, wisdom and spiritual power
  • Protects from spirits
  • Protects from untimely death
  • Creates rain for crops
  • Controls the weather
  • Cures the “drib” disease, which is caused by certain classes of spirits
  • Avoids harm from weapons
  • Cures wind or “lung” diseases
  • Cures physical and mental disabilities
  • Protects from harm such as robbers
  • Pacifies obstacles to growing crops such as insects
  • Protects while travelling.
  • One will not go hungry, and will obtain food

Of all these benefits, the most important is the ability to increase our wisdom. Wisdom is the antidote to ignorance, which is the root of all our suffering. Therefore to obtain the omniscient wisdom of the Buddha should be one’s highest spiritual aspiration. Almost all of Buddha’s perfect teachings in his scriptural texts were intended, either directly or indirectly, for His disciples to attain wisdom.

In the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra, the Buddha’s teachings on Emptiness which is the highest perfection of wisdom, is the essence of this great sutra. Lama Tsongkhapa has also described the wisdom of Emptiness as being “like a lamp dispelling the darkness of ignorance”. Seeing how the Buddha and countless great masters have stressed the urgency and importance of obtaining wisdom, we too should work towards attaining great wisdom which we can gain through the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Gaden Lhagyama. 

Throughout my years of teaching, I have come across many who consider Lama Tsongkhapa’s Gaden Lhagyama to be a minor practice. They think they would be better off receiving practices such as Tantra. This is a huge misconception and I want to share a story in hopes that this ignorance is dispelled.

Many years back when I first entered Gaden Shartse Monastery, I met an old monk. He was always happy, a sincere practitioner and very attained. Being young and new to the monastery, I had a deep interest in knowing how he could attain such a peaceful state. So I asked the senior monk about his practice, to which he replied “Gaden Lhagyama”. That caught me off guard. I was surprised because… honestly I was expecting a different answer. But that was what he said – Gaden Lhagyama. 

The senior monk then proceeded to tell me how he used to be very fickle-minded about being in Dharma, and how he was always depressed due to the difficult conditions in the monastery. He had entertained thoughts of leaving, but deep down he knew Dharma was good for him. So one day, he decided to seek the advice of his teacher who told him to make Gaden Lhagyama his main practice. He did so and he saw a huge change in his mind which allowed him to continue being a monk in the monastery and live peacefully and happily. His teacher told him to focus on the Migtseyma mantra of Tsongkhapa in Gaden Lhagyama and his mind will become better. Sure enough it did. He told me to always do Migtseyma and always trust this practice as it brought him great benefits. 

Another story that is often shared is how highly the practice of Gaden Lhagyama was regarded by His Holiness the 6th Panchen Lama, Palden Yeshe. It is said that a Mongolian minister once visited the Panchen Lama to request for a small practice. The Panchen Lama then asked him what type of practice he wanted, and the minister replied that he would like to receive the Migtsema practice. Upon hearing that, the Panchen Lama was surprised and said “How can you say that the practice of Migtsema is a small practice? There is no greater practice than this as it contains the meaning of all the Buddha’s 84,000 teachings!

This is the greatness of Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice, and we should remember this daily when we engage in his practice. I wish all of you well, and may all auspiciousness be with you.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing Lama Tsongkhapa practice and teaching into our life. Lama Tsongkhapa practice is not hard to follow but can effectively calm down my mind and bring inner peace to my mind. Lama Tsongkhapa had shown us all the way and methods to engage in Dharma practice. We should follow His examples especially when doing our preliminary practices as well as engaging in retreat.

    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands,

    In many ways Rinpoche is very much like Lama Tsongkhapa. What stood out for me is that Lama Tsongkhapa would not show his miraculous powers to others because he wanted them to focus on the dharma teachings.

    As stated in the article, “But stories on miracles will not bring us to enlightenment. Therefore Lama Tsongkhapa did not stress on miracles but the teachings of Lord Buddha to transform the mind, bring it to reality and to enlightenment. Because Lama Tsongkhapa focused on the practices, writings and teaching of Buddha, this is left to us today and if we study his teachings, we will definitely gain great knowledge and a complete practice to enlightenment.”.

    This speaks volumes of Lama Tsongkhapa as his main focus was to guide others towards enlightenment. Everything else was not important although showing miraculous powers would attract many people to him.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much this wonderful teachings. I really loved it. I haven been doing this as you always have instructed us to and I find very beneficial to this modern life. Long live Rinpoche _()_

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Apr 15, 2016 at 1:21 pm

    What wonderful stories about sincere practitioners of lama Tsongkhapa and the signs that are shown to the practitioners. To me it is also a sign that at this time Je Tsongkhapa’s teachings are particularly suited to the beings of this time.

  7. Li Kheng on Feb 15, 2016 at 11:47 am

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for these magical stories of Lama Tsongkhapa. Sometimes, we tend to complicate things simply because we exaggerate and enlarge our problems so much that we have the misconception that only “high”, complicated solutions would work. A TedX talk by Jon Jandai on life is really easy reveals how accessible solutions to being wealthy materially and spiritually truly are. However mankind consistently invest in making life hard because in truth this is a comfort zone.

    It is very encouraging to know that the powerful yet simple and easy to practice Gaden Lhagyama is made so accessible by Rinpoche online.

  8. Chris on Feb 1, 2016 at 1:12 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this article. I am extremely lucky to have met with Lama Tsongkhapa’s teaching in this life.

    I had came across the story on the old monk who achieve happiness by just doing Lama Tsongkhapa’s pratice in Rinpoche’s youtube teachings a few months back. It was then I started to increase my Migtzema recitations to 1 mala each day coupled with visualization. I must say that it made quite an impact on my way of thinking and emotions as well. I am more cheerful and my thought process improved as well.

  9. Stella Cheang on Jan 29, 2016 at 9:07 am

    As a student within the Gelug tradition of Tiebtan Buddhism, it is our honor to learn more about Lama Tsongkhapa. Here are a few things I learnt from this article:

    1. We hardly heard of many clairvoyance powers by Lama Tsongkhapa. It is not a sign that he does not have the power but rather, out of compassion, he chose not to show his miracle powers because he knew that miracle power will not lead followers to enlightenment. But the teaching of Lam Rim and Lo Jong would.
    2. From the story of Je She Par Ma and Je Ku Thim Ma; the power of Lama Tsongkhapa was invoked and miracle happened when the practitioners conduct their have pure devotion, practice consistently and regarded the images as Lama Tsongkhapa in flesh.
    3. In the case of Je Tsong Poen Gelek Ma, it proved to us that afflicted action (e.g. jealousy) will never be able to conceal the greatness of Lama Tsongkhapa for long.
    4. One of the benefits of Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice is to increase wisdom, this is of utmost importance because wisdom cut through ignorance, which is the cause of our sufferings.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this blogpost that show us the greatness of Lama Tsongkhapa and His practice. I will remember this daily.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I must say a big “Thank You” to Rinpoche as I can attest to what have been written above especially the story of the fickle-minded monk. There are many unhappy incidents happened throughout my journey in Dharma for the past two years especially when I wanted to engage in my two previous Lama Tsongkhapa retreats… but I am glad that that I have been given a profound practice, which is the seven-limb prayers Migtsema. I can at least face my problems better than I could think! At least, I can let go more… I really treasure what I have now … Dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the miraculous stories of Lama Tsongkhapa statues.

    作为一名藏传佛教格鲁派的学生,我们必须要了解与明白格鲁派的传承与认识宗喀巴大师。

    当年,释迦牟尼佛曾经预测过文殊菩萨以后会在一个雪域的地方(现在的西藏),化身为一个普通人。这个人会执行与护持佛法和建立兜率宮。而他就是宗喀巴大师。

    宗喀巴大师是非常的慈悲。因为他的专注修行、写作与教佛法,而让我们今天有幸的可以参考与阅读他的教诲。宗喀巴大师最注重的教诲包括了掌中解脱、心识的转变、手印、如何可以正确、舒适和顺利的修持与实践,然后达到证悟。

    除了宗喀巴大师的教诲,宗喀巴大师的佛像其实也曾经显现过一些神迹。印象最深刻的是Je Tsong Poen Gelek Ma 和 Je Tso Dog Ma。这些神迹证明了宗喀巴大师的佛像不只是不容易摧毁而且还可以庇佑当地的居民,让战争停止和尽快的恢复和平的环境。

    因此,持修宗喀巴大师的法门和拥有宗喀巴大师的佛像可以让我们更称心的修行而最终达到证悟。班禅喇嘛曾经说过不要以为持修缘悲经是一个很小的修持。没有一个修持法可以胜于缘悲经。因为缘悲经包含了佛陀所教的八万四千法。

    感谢仁波切的分享,让我可以更清楚了解和拥有信心的持修宗喀巴大师的上师瑜伽法和缘悲经。

    So much pain and torturing inflicted on the poor animals to satisfy our demand for eggs. I hope this article creates the awareness for all of us to rethink our diet and find alternatives to replace eggs. Getting free range eggs or “kampung” eggs is a slightly better idea as long as we are assured that the farm that produces these eggs provide the free range / “kampung” condition for the chicken. The best idea is to omit egg from our diet completely. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The importance of Fasting Buddha is to remind us that there will be much difficulties in the process to enlightenment and we must overcome them before we can finally achieve success. Fortitude and diligence are the accessories to overcoming the difficulties. It took Buddha six years of hardship and extreme fasting to gain realization on the “Middle Way”, what more for clowns like us? Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    ***The Blessings of the Guru***

    Guru devotion and clean samaya with one’s Guru are commonly recognised and emphasised as the foundation of Dharma study and practice in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. From the legendary Padmasambhava of the Nyingma lineage to the revered mahasiddhas Milarepa and Naropa of the Kagyu tradition, to the great Pabongka Rinpoche of the Gelugpa lineage of practitioners; Guru devotion is undisputedly the common and fundamental element for any Dharma realisation, attainment and ultimately Enlightenment… more>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-blessings-of-the-guru

    Do you know about the one-god theory ? This theory was not the domain of established modern religions but were already existent in pre-modern or pagan religions. This video shows how the one god theory is not the exclusive rights of anyone but in fact was a gradual process taken from Pagan religions.

    Extremely well written, excellently performed and superb plot of a film. I came across the film by accident and decided to watch because it’s Bette Davis and the end really touched me so deeply. So very deeply. So very meaningful. In the end, you have to be truthful to those who love you and you really can love them back. You must watch the whole thing to understand the touching and powerful ending: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr5I6NlueVw&feature=youtu.be

    Sharing with you a wonderful story about a Yogi Rinpoche.

    After he became a Geshe, Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche went into retreat in a cave on Lhumbo Tse, a high mountain near Lhasa. Throughout the duration of his retreat, he carried only one text – the Lamrim Chenmo, his robes and was accompanied by only a monk-attendant.

    While Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche was looking for a cave on this high mountain, rocks kept on coming down near him as if thrown from above. He followed the stones and after some time, came upon a cave. The stones were dropping on that cave.

    When he entered the cave, he found a skeleton sitting in the meditation posture. Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche then sat down and offered a mandala. Upon completion of the mandala offering, the skeleton collapsed. Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche took it as an auspicious sign and decided to practise in that cave.

    Vegetarianism in Buddhism

    The Lankavatara Sutra, written in the fourth or fifth Century CE strongly advocates abstinence in relation to the consumption of meat. Scriptures such as the Mahayana Jataka tales indicate that meat-consumption is undesirable and karmically unwholesome. So, Mahayana practitioners are strictly forbidden from consuming meat. They are also forbidden from consuming aromatic plants that stimulate the senses such as onions and garlic.

    Dear Elizabeth,

    Rinpoche was very happy to receive your kind offer and hanged it immediately in His resting/work area. Rinpoche also had us placed an incense burner underneath to make incense offering to Lord Vajrayogini daily, and said the iconography is correct and it is a stunning piece.

    Rinpoche was told that you were gifted a Vajrayogini pendant 4 years ago, October 2013, during your visit to Kechara Forest Retreat. I remember Rick and you were captivated by Rinpoche’s Vajrayogini replica http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/travel/my-bodhgaya-vajrayogini.html that was displayed in Wisdom Hall during the tour so you must have very strong affinity with Her.

    Rinpoche always tell us that very few people can actually make or draw Lord Vajrayogini image and He was very glad that you are one of them. Thank you again for your wonderful offering and setting an example of patience, good efforts and consistency.

    With best wishes,
    Pastor Adeline

    Thank you for sharing and explanations on wealth vase.. They are powerful in attracting energies of wealth.and effective because of the way they are made by monks from the monasteries.
    Recently i have invited home a small wealth vase, my very first on Yangdup Wealth Puja Day 2017. Its very beautiful and auspicious wealth vase i just love and treasure it. Hoping that it will help me to increase my inner and outer wealth spiritually and materially.

    Rejoice for Chen for being able to serve Rinpoche and the ladrang’s team. It is great effort from Chen to make sure that Rinpoche is well taken care of. His act also inspire us to practise Guru Devotion and do all the work given without complain and doing it well.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries. You can start right now: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/starting-on-vajra-yogini-now.html  Much care, Tsem Rinpoche

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
