  History of the Jonang Tradition
The Jonang tradition is the primary holder of the Dro transmission and practice lineage of the Kalachakra Tantra, the Six Yogas of the Kalachakra completion stage, and the Zhentong (gzhan stong) or "emptiness of other" view.
In the 17th century, during the rule of Fifth Dalai Lama, the Geluk persecuted the Jonang and forcibly closed or converted the Jonang monasteries in Central Tibet.
According to the Jonang, the Zhentong view of emptiness was taught by the Buddha, elaborated in India, and later transmitted into Tibet.

 The Living Tradition | Jonang Foundation
With surmounting factional rivalries and divided allegiances amongst Jonang and Geluk patrons and the Mongol Army's solidifying of Geluk power, Jonang political and territorial influence began to wane.
With the late 19th century luminaries such as Jamgon Kongtrul (1813-1899) and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo (1820-1892), the Rime or eclectic movement was born in Kham, Eastern Tibet.
In the 1960's, many of the great living exemplars of the Jonang were forced out of their monasteries, and they fled into the countryside of Amdo where they wandered as nomads or took shelter in caves as yogis.

 The Jonang Lineage   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Firstly, Jonang is the only one of the five Tibetan Buddhist schools to uphold the Zhentong Madhyamika philosophy – an important way to describe the Buddhist view of emptiness.
Secondly, the Jonang tradition is recognized as being important in preserving the Kalachakra Completion Stage practice, also known as the Six Kalachakra Yogas.
Although Jonang is the only school which declares itself to hold this view, numerous great masters from the different traditions, including the present Kamarpa, have praised and adopted this view themselves.

He had formulated a philosophical position that later was considered ‘heretical’, for it offered a way of conceptualizing the process of Enlightenment that was close to the thoughts of early mediaeval Chan Buddhism of the Chinese monk Hvashang.
They attacked their opponents of continuing the mistaken doctrines of the Chinese party in order to take precedence mainly over the teachings of the Nyingmapa order, which were legitimized by being traced back to the time of the great ‘Kings of religion’ (chos rgyal).
It was owing to the Rime lamas that the sealed Jonang texts and printing-blocks were finally given access to again in the 19th century.

Numerous Jonang monks besides Taranatha wrote on the Kalachakra, and a unique line of Kalachakra teachings has been passed down to this day by the Karma Kargyu school.
But while it is easy to imagine Jonang and Gelug monks engaging in fierce courtyard debates over these teachings it is difficult to believe that philosophical differences alone were behind the forceful takeover of the Puntsokling Monastery in 1642 by the Dalai Lama-led Gelug sect and the subsequent suppression of the Jonan school.
While the Jonang sect itself was suppressed, it should be pointed out that many of Taranatha’s writing later became fully incorporated into the teaching of the Gelug sect.

Kumbum Jonang Monastery is situated in the Shigatse region of central Tibet.
Sources (who wish to remain anonymous) learned that the "re-education classes" were being conducted every day for up to 10 hours with barely a break, and that already half of the monastery's 25 to 30 monks had left for home or been expelled because they refused to sign a letter denouncing the Dalai Lama.
By spring 1998 (March to May in Tibet), Kumbum Jonang Monastery was completely closed, according to sources.

 Six Yogas
The Vajrayana path is very structured, and before the Six Yogas can be practised, it is necessary first to perform a set of preliminary practices (sngon 'gro), and then go on to the main yidam meditations, or generation process (bskyed rim) meditations of Kalacakra.
In the Kagyu and Jonang traditions the yidam practice requires in addition to the regular generation process meditation a recitation of 10 million Kalacakra mantras.
This is mainly based on the work describing the theoretical underpinning of the Six Yogas by the Jonang writer Taranatha: the zab lam rdo rje'i rnal 'byor gyi rnam par bshad pa rgyas par bstan pa zung 'jug rab tu gsal ba chen po.
