On this day we celebrate the life and pairnirvana of the illustrious founder of our Ganden Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, Je Tsongkhapa. Known as “Je Rinpoche”, this saint was at once an unsurpassed yogi, scholar and teacher and seen as the emanation of Manjushri, Avalokiteshvara and Vajrapani, the Buddhas of Wisdom, Compassion and Power respectively. This day is traditionally celebrated festively with lights and a feast offering. Participants are asked to bring an offering of food or drink.
Open to all. By suggested donation.
