Summary

An anthology of the transformative life and useful teachings of Tsongkhapa (for both nonspecialists and scholars) that fulfills a longstanding need of the contemporary Dharma community in the East and West. 

Tsongkhapa is revered as one of the most significant Tibetan Buddhist teachers, whose eclectic and analytic studies and meditations in all the major schools of Tibetan Buddhism resulted in the founding of the Gelugpa system of the Tibetan Buddhist heritgage. The Life and Teachings of Tsongkhapa brings together for the first time a number of extremely important and useful works by and on Tsongkhapa, touching on transcendental aspects of sutra, tantra, and insight meditation, including mystic conversations with great bodhisattvas and deeply spiritual songs in praise of Manjushri and Maitreya. 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 Khaydrup 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.
