Program Description:

Please join The Four Harmonious Friends – the four Bay Area FPMT Centers, for Ganden Ngamchoe, a celebration to commemorate the 601st anniversary of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Parinirvana.  Lama Tsongkhapa is the founder of our Gelugpa lineage and is revered by all Tibetan Buddhist traditions as a scholar, practitioner, meditator, teacher.

Among Lama Tsongkhapa’s major accomplishments is writing the Lamrim, or the Great Treatise on the Path to Enlightenment, a step-by-step guide to the spiritual practices that lead to enlightenment. He also wrote several condensed versions of the Lamrim, including Foundation of All Good Qualities, the Three Principal Aspects of the Path, and Song of Experience.

He also revitalized the monastic code in Tibet, established the annual Great Prayer Festival, established Ganden Monastery, the first of the great monasteries in the Gelugpa tradition, and wrote 18 volumes of teachings.
