Lama Tsongkhapa Guru Yoga is a particularly powerful practice for receiving the blessings of one’s personal teacher and developing the realization of guru devotion. Also known as the Hundred Deities of Tushita (Ganden Lha Gyama), it is a seven-limb practice related to Lama Tsongkhapa, a great Tibetan scholar, saint, and yogi of the 14th century. This practice is much used when in LamRim retreat, to be done before the daily contemplation on the graduated path to enlightenment. During the teachings, Geshe Sherab will explain the sadhana in depth and lead the practice.

Lama Tsongkhapa is the founder of the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and revitalizer of many sutra and tantra lineages and the monastic tradition in Tibet. Click here for a biography from the FPMT website.
