 [No title]
Tsongkhapa cites the Upāliparipṛcchā Sūtra, the Mañju"srīvikrīḍita Sūtra, and the Sañchayagāthāprajñāpāramitā Sūtra.
Tsongkhapa's interpretation would have to be even bolder--or, anger of the root-cutting variety would have to be clearly restricted to only the most extraordinary moments of rage--to avoid this untenable conclusion.
Tsongkhapa would not say this, I think; however, he might argue that every unpleasant experience at least indirectly stems from one's past actions insofar as one's actions are a part of the collective karma that creates and sustains a shared environment.

 Tsong-kha-pa
At the heart of Tsongkhapa's inner exultation is also a sense of wonder and amazement at the convergence between what appear to be two contradictory natures of things ‑ their lack of intrinsic existence on the one hand, and their coming into being by means of dependent origination on the other.
Tsongkhapa was one of the most careful of all Tibetan writers; in particular, the philosophical works of his so‑called `later period' reflect a tremendous sophistication and subtlety in his use of language.
In examining Tsongkhapa's understanding and application of the Madhyamaka dialectic, this study attempts to remain sensitive to his forms of argumentation and logical analysis, as well as to his use of rhetoric, all of which are so crucial to Tsongkhapa's style of philosophizing.

 Lama Tsong Khapa Biography
Tsongkhapa was born in 1357 in the Tsongkha valley of Amdo province in northeast Tibet.

Tsongkhapa reaffirmed Atisha's emphasis on the monastic virtues and the need to establish a firm knowledge of the sutra before graduating to the practice of tantra.
Tsongkhapa demonstrated how this goal may be reached through the differentiated states of equilibrium of dwelling in tranquillity and through special insight.

 Je Tsongkhapa
The third line explains that although he was an enlightened being, a manifestation of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri, Je Tsongkhapa did not reveal himself to be a special being but always appeared in the aspect of an ordinary practitioner.
All of this indicates that Je Tsongkhapa is a manifestation of Buddha Maitreya, who is the Protector of the hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land.
These days the tradition of Je Tsongkhapa is known as the "Gelug", or "Virtuous Tradition", and his followers are known as "Gelugpas"; but the original name of "Ganden" came from Buddha Shakyamuni.

 Welcome to IGS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Tsongkhapa was particularly attracted by Kham's emphasis on the Mahayana principles of universal compassion and altruism, valuing these qualities not only as a spiritual orientation, but more importantly, as a way of life.
However, in Tsongkhapa's tradition, the Kadam approach is combined with a strong emphasis on the cultivation of an in-depth insight into the doctrine of emptiness as propounded by Nagarjuna and Candrakirti.
Tsongkhapa enshrined into a system of learning and contemplation the need to base the above two elements of the path on a whole-hearted wish for liberation, impelled by genuine sense of renunciation.

 Cutting the Roots of Virtue
In these works he assesses the importance of the status of the recipient of anger and attempts to explain what precisely it does and does not mean to "cut the roots" of virtue for the incredible spans indicated in the Indian sources.
This is the picture that emerges from Tsongkhapa's reflections in the "Patience" chapter of his Lam rim chen mo.
Another of Tsongkhapa's examples involves a far more advanced person who has attained the path of preparation, that level at which, according to Tsongkhapa, there has been an inferential understanding of emptiness.

 Wittgenstein, Tsongkhapa, and Interpretation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Tsongkhapa was a philosopher within the Prasangika Madhyamika school of Indo-Tibetan philosophy.
As such, the goal of Tsongkhapa is similar to that of psychoanalysis insofar as both aim to understand the mind so as to free the patient from some of its encumbering effects.
If the eventual goal of psychoanalysis was the same as that of Tsongkhapa, it would be to show to the patient in exacting and thorough detail the minutiae of his beliefs in both their sunyata and rten hbrel existence.

 The Healing Buddha Foundation - Segyu Gaden Dhargye Ling
Robert Thurman is the Jey Tsongkhapa Professor of Indo-Tibetan Studies and Chair of the Religion Department at Columbia University in New York.
The greatness of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim teaching was that he followed the patterns set forth by Atisha 400 years earlier and he systematized the path to make it very efficient and very effective so that someone else could understand the basic selflessness, compassion and renunciation that you need to then embark on tantric teachings.
And people don’t usually recognize Lama Tsongkhapa as a great founder of and streamliner and renewer of the tantric traditions as well as of the regular ethical and philosophical traditions, but he certainly was.

A great admirer of the Kadampa (Bka'-gdams-pa) teachings, Tsongkhapa was an enthusiastic promoter of the Kadam School's emphasis on the Mahayana principles of universal compassion as the fundamental spiritual orientation.
Tsongkhapa said that these two aspects of the spiritual path, compassion and insight into wisdom, must be rooted in a wholehearted wish for liberation, all impelled by a genuine sense of renunciation.

 TYS -- Review of
Je Tsongkhapa, who combined spiritual virtuosity with philosophical genius, offered innovative interpretations, which did not always sit well with his contemporaries and subsequent generations of Buddhist thinkers.
Je Tsongkhapa interpreted the Madhyamaka position on this as saying that personal identity is simply a (convenient) construct dependent on other interdependent factors, which sounds rather modern.
This is a much-needed lucid exposition of key notions within Tibetan Buddhism (and Mahayana Buddhism in general), with the added advantage of the author’s twofold ability to dig deep into the Tibetan texts and to relate traditional Tibetan concepts to contemporary philosophical discourse.

It also deals extensively with one of Tsongkhapa's primary concerns, namely his attempts to demonstrate that the Middle Way philosophy's de-constructive analysis does not negate the reality of the everyday world.
This is explored both in terms of Tsongkhapa's de-construction of the self and his re-construction of person.

 E-sangha, Buddhist Forum and Buddhism Forum -> Svatantrika and Prasangika
On the other hand, this novelty of Tsongkhapa's is the very thing that is celebrated in Gelug, so much so that it is considered that Tsongkhpa revealed the true meaning of Madhyamaka that Indian post-Chandrakiritians like Jayananda, did not grasp, much less Tibetans.
But of course, not everyone who followed Tsongkhapa agreed with everything he said, for example, I understand that Panchen Sonam Dragpa really did criticize Tsongkhpa on certain points, and declared that he himself was the greatest Tibetan scholar that had ever lived.
Especially since prior to Tsongkhapa everyone agreed that emptiness was freedom from the proliferation of the four extremes of existence, non-existence, both and neither-- and the only thing people reaslly argued about was whether it was ok to try and prove emptiness with inferences [Svatantrika] or not [Prasangika].

Without doubt Lama Tsongkhapa is the one father of all the Victorious Ones, which means Manjushri.

So, Lama Tsongkhapa guru yoga practice is regarded as a great puja for the success of one's own dharma practice, as well as for others.

 Monastic Interreligious Dialogue | Lama Tsongkhapa Day and Tsog Offering
As the founder of the Gelug pa order of Tibetan Buddhism, Tsongkhapa’s presence was not only of great service in the preservation of the dharma, but also in thoroughly refining the teachings.
Tsongkhapa founded Ganden Monastery – one of the greatest monasteries in Tibet –; and his popular Gelugpa tradition gave rise to many others following in this same order (such as is studied and practiced at Drepung, Sera, the Upper and Lower Tantric monasteries, as well as Namgyal Monastery).
Lama Tsongkhapa is also referred to as Shar Tsong-khapa Lobsang Dragpa; simply meaning that he was born in the eastern part of Tibet, in the Tsong-kha area, and his given name at birth was Lobsang Drakpa (meaning one who is goodhearted and famous).
