Explore Tsong-Kha-Pa, spiritual ancestor of the Dalai Lamas and incarnation of a celestial being. With his sword of wisdom poised to strike through clouds of ignorance, Tsong-Kha-Pa is part of Phoenix Art Museum’s collection of gilt bronze sculptures of lamas and deities both fierce and mild. Connect with him and with Tibetan Buddhist practice and devotion in a conversation with docent Carrie Mikkelborg.
