Pilgrimage to kumbum Monastery

There is an interesting story on a commentary I have for the practice of Gaden Lhagyama, which is practice daily by followers of Je tsongkhapa’s teaching. It said that when Tsongkhapa was born a drop of blood from his umbilical cord miraculously formed a tree whose leaves are inscripted by the seed syllable dhi and letters from the mantra om a ra pa ca na dhi.


Since then it has been my wish to visit Kumbum Monastery, which was constructed around the stupa built at the exact spot Je Tsongkhapa was born.  I was fortunate enough to visit the monastery and visit its surrounding area.


Hope that the teaching of Je Tsongkhapa will flourish in Tibet, China, Mongolia, and all around the world.
