The Biography of Tsongkhapa the Incomparable

Postby Konchog1 » Sat Dec 22, 2012 6:46 am

Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats

It is really unfortunate that there is not a complete biography about Lama Tzongkhapa in English. There are just bits and pieces here and there. It is surprising, actually.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

I would love to be able to do something decent in the future in terms of a biography, as a group project with other translators because that is what really leads to high quality publications.
First, though, I have to refine my knowledge of classical written Tibetan- interpreting and written translation funnily enough are quite different skills.
