In Tibetan Buddhism knowledge of the lineage of gurus from whom you receive teachings is very important. It is essential to receive the blessings of the lineage gurus in the Vajrayana tradition and be able to trace the authenticity of the intentions and teachings going back to the Lord Buddha. Venerable Tulku Yeshi will describe the lineage of precious gurus from whom H.H. J.D. Sakya received the Ngondro practices and the significance of Guru Yoga.
