Lama Tsongkhapa Guru Yoga is a particularly powerful practice for receiving the blessings of one’s personal teacher and developing the realization of guru devotion. Also known as the Hundred Deities of Tushita (Ganden Lha Gyäma), it is a seven-limb practice related to Lama Tsongkhapa, the great Tibetan scholar, saint, and yogi of the 14th century who founded the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
To supplement and complete this short text, Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche has compassionately added a preliminary practice of the Four Immeasurable Thoughts, the lam-rim prayer Foundation of All Good Qualities by Lama Tsongkhapa, and two visualizations to do while reciting the Five-Line Migtsema Prayer to Lama Tsongkhapa, one for purifying negative karma and one for achieving seven special types of wisdom. The practice includes Vajrasattva purification and meditations on making offerings, confessing, and rejoicing.
