Condensed Tsongkapa practice for Happiness & clear mind
About 2 weeks ago, a Vietnamese lady from San Francisco and a 21 year old boy from China came to visit Kechara. They had flown all the way from their respective home countries just to see the various work Kecharians and myself were doing here!
Metok from the US, and Yin Xi from China had saved up for their airfare, gotten in contact with Kechara’s main temple, coordinated with Kecharians to arrange for their accommodation, arrived in KL and volunteered in all of the departments any way they could. Such fuss-free, independent and passionate people! I was inspired by their efforts and thirst for Dharma that I decided to give a teaching at my private residence. The teaching was on the founder of our Gelugpa lineage, Lama Tsongkhapa. I decided to give a short and easy teaching. Not too long and not too difficult. I have condensed this teaching for everyone for easy listening and easier to retain the information for practice. Practicing this will help our mind, decrease depression/anxiety, help us to let go of the past and move on. We will be blessed to have clear and sharp mind filled with wisdom.
Together with Metok and Yin Xi, I decided to invite pastors in training and a few other people whom I thought would really benefit from the teaching. I like to invite those who during my public talks are attentive, listening carefully, take notes and really try to learn and understand.
KIM were there to film the teaching. It is a very simple yet comprehensive teaching on Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. I went through one by one on the benefits of doing Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice, the different types of offerings that can be done and gave an explanation on the visualizations to be done for Lama Tsongkhapa’s prayers. The materials used were the books in Lama Tsongkhapa’s box set (Chinese box set) and prayers that can be found here… so if you have these items, you’re all set!
As this is a teaching on Lama Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelugpa lineage, this teaching is very powerful in itself. However how powerful this teaching is on your personal spiritual growth, is dependent on how much you absorb and apply it. It is a 4 hour teaching… so grab a cup of tea, a notebook and enjoy! I really pray it will benefit you please.
