The Essential Practices of Kadampa Buddhism

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Je Tsongkhapa showed a perfect example of how to build the foundation for the spiritual path, how to progress on that path, and how to complete it.

The first is a popular practice of Relying on the Spiritual Guide in association with Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa, through which we can receive blessings and gain the realisations of the entire path to enlightenment.

The second is a special method to overcome obstacles and create favorable conditions for success in our spiritual practice by relying upon the Wisdom Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.
