Description

A must-read for students of Tibetan Buddhism, The Life and Teachings of Tsongkhapa provides a thorough exploration of the great teacher's wisdom.

In The Life and Teachings of Tsongkhapa, you'll discover Tsongkhapa's teachings on
  • transcendental aspects of sutra, tantra, and insight meditation, mystic conversations with great bodhisattvas, deeply spiritual songs in praise of Ma?jushri and Maitreya, and much more.

The anthology concludes with a number of intensely moving songs in praise of Tsongkhapa and his immeasurable contribution to Tibetan Buddhism by such realized and remarkable Tibetan Buddhists as the Seventh Dalai Lama, the Eighth Karmapa, Dulnagpa Palden, and Khedrup Je.

This edition has been substantially corrected by Robert Thurman and contains a new introduction and a bibliography of all the works referenced in the text.
