Join us on Tuesday, 10th October 2023 for an auspicious reading of the Guhyasamaja Root Tantra comprising of 17 chapters.
The Guhyasamaja Tantra holds a special place in the Gelug tradition as it is one of the three Kingly Tantras recommended by Lama Tsongkhapa.
Lama Tsongkhapa further said that just to read, study, or even come into contact with this tantra creates immense benefit, and as long as Guhyasamaja’s Tantra remains, all other tantras will remain too.
The puja will be conducted by visiting Sangha from Shar Gaden, Serpom, Phelgyeling and Segyu monasteries, alongside high lamas and esteemed geshes.

Who is Guhyasamaja?
Guhyasamaja is one of the three Kingly Tantras of the Gelug order as proliferated by Lama Tsongkhapa. His name literally means “Secret Assembly”, which refers to the practice of gathering and manipulating psychic winds in the body to accomplish awakening of the mind.
Guhyasamaja is described as the supreme King of all Tantras as comprehension of his tantra allows us to understand the inner workings of all other tantric systems. It is also said that the survival of the tantras in general depends on the continued proliferation and practice of Guhyasamaja’s tantric system.
