Tsongkhapa Meditation Centre or Centre de Méditation Tsongkapa is a Dharma centre in Canada dedicated to the preservation of the authentic Buddhadharma in general and the oral transmission lineages of the Gelug Tradition founded by the great master Je Tsongkhapa in particular. Founded by Venerable Zawa Tulku Rinpoche in August 2015 in the town of Sainte-Sophie, an hour away from Montreal, Tsongkhapa Meditation Centre was established to realise the deepest wishes of his Guru, Venerable Geshe Khenrab Gajam, to create a centre from which the compassionate Mahayana-Vajrayana Buddhist tradition instituted by the great Je Tsongkhapa could flourish.
Tsongkhapa Meditation Centre had the honour of being inaugurated by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche, who led many eminent lamas including Rabten Rinpoche, Kalden Rinpoche and Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin in prayer to consecrate and bless the new centre and its land.
After the prayers, Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche gave a teaching on the Segyu tradition of ‘The Hundreds of Deities of the Land of Joy (Tushita Heaven)’, from a text composed by Tulku Chokyi Nyima. Attendees were fortunate to hear Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche recite the text as he granted an oral transmission of this practice, which he himself had received from one of the greatest masters of the recent past, His Eminence Kyabje Lati Rinpoche.
