Lama Losang Tubwang Dorjechang A special manifestation of Je Tsongkhapa revealed directly to the great Yogi Dharmavajra. In this manifestation, Je Tsongkhapa appears as a fully ordained monk wearing a long-eared Pandit’s hat, with Buddha Shakyamuni at his heart, and Conqueror Vajradhara at his heart. In the practice of Offering to the Spiritual Guide, we visualize our Spiritual Guide in this aspect. `Lama’ indicates that he is our Spiritual Guide, `Losang’ that he is Je Tsongkhapa (whose ordained name was Losang Dragpa), `Tubwang’ that he is Buddha Shakyamuni, and `Dorjechang’ that he is Vajradhara. In Tibetan, this aspect of our Spiritual Guide is also known as `je sempa sum tseg’, which means `Je Tsongkhapa, the Unification of Three Holy Beings’. This indicates that in reality our Spiritual Guide is the same nature as Je Tsongkhapa, Buddha Shakyamuni, and Conqueror Vajradhara.
