Prayer for the Flourishing of Je Tsongkhapa’s Teaching

The Prayer for the Flourishing of Je Tsongkhapa's Teaching, composed by Gungthang Tenpai Drönme (1762 - 1823), is a popular prayer often recited as a dedication after teachings. Demo Rinpoche will teach on the basis of this prayer, which highlights how the unique qualities of Je Tsongkhapa's teachings can aid the spiritual development of practitioners.

Je Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) was a great fourteenth-century scholar and teacher who foun­ded the Gelug traditi­on. His many treatises finalized the work begun by Atisha which brought together the vast body of Indian scriptures and schools of practice into a unified exposition of the sutra and tantra paths. He wrote sever­al lam rims. The most well-known is The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path of Enlightenment (Lam rim chen mo). There is also a medium-length lamrim text by Tsongkhapa (200 pages) and a short one, called Lam-rim Dü-dön (Tib.), which is recited daily by many Gelugpas and is about ten pages long.

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.
