Mount Geden

In the year 1409 the master Dülzin Dragpa Gyältsen, who was the most senior of the close disciples of the Great Je Tsonghapa, established a monastery on Mount Geden near Lhasa as a permanent residence for his teacher.

From this monastery Buddha Shakyamuni's teachings, as brought to Tibet by the Indian master Atisha in 1042, experienced an unprecedented spread throughout Tibet, China and Mongolia due to the unsurpassed example and teachings of Master Je Tsongkhapa.

This Dharma is still available in our days through an unbroken golden chain of extraordinary masters for anyone seeking a profound understanding of existence and the true causes of happiness. It is known with the Tibetan name Gelug, meaning Tradition of Mount Geden.
