Demo Rinpoche – Je Tsongkhapa and His Work

Je Tsongkhapa, the great Tibetan scholar, yogi and author, founded the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism in the late 14th century. He has been highly influential in the transmission and evolution of both the sutra and tantra aspects of Mahayana Buddhism that flourished in Tibet over the last six centuries. This year is the 600th anniversary of the passing away of this great master.

Demo Rinpoche will teach about Je Tsongkhapa’s life story and the evolving efforts that continues through the lineage of his disciples, including the Dalai Lamas and Panchen Lamas to the present day.

DEMO RINPOCHE went to Drepung Loseling Monastery in Mundgod at the age of five and officially joined the monastery in 1987, where he spent nearly thirty years of uninterrupted education in meditation, debate, memorization, philosophy, and composition under the Dalai Lama’s direct supervision. After completing his studies at Drepung, Rinpoche received the highest monastic degree of Geshe Lharampa from Gelugpa University in India in 2011. He continued his studies at Gyume Tantric College and was a visiting scholar under the auspices of the Dalai Lama at Sarah College of Higher Tibetan Studies in Dharamsala. At the request of Gelek Rimpoche, Demo Rinpoche came to the United States where he received his Master’s Degree in Inter-Religious Engagement from Union Theological Seminary in New York City in 2018. Currently based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, he serves as the Resident Spiritual Advisor at Jewel Heart.
