Authorized Lives is the 1st paintings dedicated to early Geluk background and to the function of biographies in transferring demonstrated lineages. because the dominant culture of Tibetan Buddhism that gives the highbrow backdrop for the Dalai Lama's teachings, the Geluk lineage strains its origins to the determine of Tsongkhapa Losang Drakpa (1357-1419). Gelukpas at the present time think Tsongkhapa is a manifestation of the bodhisattva Manjushri and revere him along with his center disciples, Gyaltsap and Khedrup. yet as Elijah Ary, a former Geluk monk and Harvard-trained student, issues out, either one of those conceptions of Tsongkhapa arose many many years after his loss of life. Delving into the early Geluk biographical culture, Ary follows the tracks of this evolution within the biographies of Tsongkhapa, Khedrup, and the influential early Geluk author and reformer Jetsun Chokyi Gyaltsen.
