With Geshe Tenzin Chophel Rinpoche

In the whole of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, there is no single treatise more deeply revered or widely practiced than A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life. Composed in the eighth century by the Indian Bodhisattva Santideva, it became an instant classic in the curricula of the Buddhist monastic universities of India, and its renown has grown ever since. Santideva presents methods to harmonize one's life with the Bodhisattva ideal and inspires one to cultivate the perfections of the Bodhisattva: generosity, ethics, patience, zeal, meditative concentration and wisdom.

Lama Tsongkhapa Day -Guru Puja with Tsog
December 12 Thursday 7:30 - 9:00 PM
Lama Tsongkhapa day is the celebration of the ‘para-nirvana’ or the enlightenment of the great Lama Tsongkhapa (1357 – 1419) whose birth and enlighten activity was prophesied by the Buddha himself.
From the spiritual practice point of view, Tsongkhapa Day is extremely significant. Since Guru Yoga practice is the heart and soul of path towards enlightenment, the celebration acts as a reminder for all of us to engage in Guru devotion and seek the blessings of all the direct and lineage masters.
Palden Lhamo Practice
December 31 Sunday 7:30 - 9:00 PM
A Dharma Protector (Skt: dharmapala; Tib: chos kyong) is usually an emanation of a Buddha or a Bodhisattva whose main functions are (1) to avert the inner and outer obstacles that prevent practitioners from gaining spiritual realizations, and (2) to arrange all the necessary conditions for their practice. In Tibet, every monastery relied upon its own individual Dharma Protector to eliminate hindrances and to fulfill their spiritual aspirations. Palden Lhamo is the Dharma protector of Gaden Jangtse Monastery and of Tibet.
