Description

Following Je Tsongkhapa's Example: Outer, Inner & Secret Dharma

Day Course with Gen Kelsang Gomchen | 10am - 4:30pm


“This way of practicing Dharma with an outer, inner and secret aspect is very beautiful because not only is it the best way to help others, it is also the supreme method for completing our own spiritual development. Je Tsongkhapa practiced in this way.”

Great Treasury of Merit


Je Tsongkhapa showed the very best example of a pure practitioner and Spiritual Guide of Buddhism. He demonstrated through his own life how it is possible for one person to practice all the teachings Buddha taught, both Sutra and Tantra, and gave special methods to bring about the final result, great enlightenment swiftly and easily.

Following on from the blessing empowerments of Je Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden at this years’ International Summer Festival, Gen Gomchen will explore the essence of Je Tsongkhapa’s way of life and how by following in his footsteps we can come to experience the very essence of this precious Buddhadharma and strengthen our heart commitment to the protector of his doctrine.

This practice can be summarised from one verse contained within Melodious Drum, Victorious in All Directions:

“Outwardly practicing pure Pratimoksha discipline,

Inwardly training in renunciation and Bodhichitta,

And secretly cherishing the yoga of bliss and emptiness of the two stages,

This excellent complete path free from contradiction,

Through this practice may I fulfil the heart commitments,

Of Dorje Shugden Five Lineages and their retinues…”

A not to be missed event!
