tsong khapa je rinpoche

Tsong Khapa

(Tibetan: rJe Tsong-kha-pa Blo-bzang grags-pa) (1357-1419) Also known as Je Rinpoche or Lozang Drakpa. A great teacher and writer of the Tibetan tradition, whose work led to the formation of the Gelug school of Buddhism and the tradition of the Dalai Lamas. He wrote many important clarifications of Buddhist Dharma, notably the extensive "Great Treatise On The Stages Of The Path To Enlightenment."

"In 1387, with just reason, the Tibetan reformer Tsong Khapa cast every book of Necromancy that he found into flames. As a result, some discontent Lamas formed an alliance with the aboriginal Bhons, and today they form a powerful sect of black magic in the regions of Sikkim, Bhutan and Nepal, submitting themselves to the most abominable black rites [See: Drukpa]." - Samael Aun Weor, The Revolution of Beelzebub

"Let us remember Tsong Khapa who reincarnated in Tibet; he was the Buddha Gautama previously." - Samael Aun Weor, Mental Representations. Although some Buddhist students may dispute this statement, it was echoed some years earlier in Tibet by Je Phabongkhapa, in "Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand," who said that Padmasambhava (the founder of the Nyingma school), Je Tsongkhapa, Atisha, and Buddha Gautama Shakyamuni were all one holy being, not four separate mental continuums.

Tsong Khapa reportedly said, "A female companion is the basis of accomplishment of liberation."
