Je Tsong Khapa, Lobsang Drakpa

Je Tsong Khapa, Lobsang Drakpa (1357-1419)

“Though I had worked hard on the treatises of Sutra and Tantra and I was practicing and teaching the impact of the profound, I saw that my view had not advanced far beyond the view that has learned nothing and nothing knows. So then I studied thoroughly all the essential keys that bring out the authentic view, which I found on the path of subtle philosophy that examines the profound, especially in the scientific treatises of Nagarjuna; and I resolved all my doubts completely! Thinking this over, how well my destiny was fulfilled! Thank you so much, O Holy Wisdom Treasure!”

From Destiny Fulfilled: The Spiritual Biography of Lama Tsong Khapa by Je Tsong Khapa, as published in The Life and Teachings of Tsong Khapa edited by Robert A. F. Thurman. Library of Tibetan Works and Archives. This translation is available in PDF format from FPMT.
