Kadam Emanation Scripture Also known as `Ganden Emanation Scripture’.

A special scripture, the nature of Manjushri’s wisdom, revealed directly to Je Tsongkhapa by Manjushri.

It contains instructions on Vajrayana Mahamudra, Offering to the Spiritual Guide (Lama Chöpa),

The Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land (Ganden Lhagyäma), the Migtsema prayer, and six sadhanas of Manjushri.

This scripture was not composed in ordinary letters, and only highly realized beings can consult it directly.

At first the instructions from this scripture were passed down only by word of mouth from Teacher to disciple, and so the lineage became known as the `Uncommon Whispered Lineage of the Virtuous Tradition’ or the ‘Ensa Whispered Lineage’.

It is also known as the `Uncommon Close Lineage’ because it was revealed directly to Je Tsongkhapa by Manjushri.

Later, scholars such as the first Panchen Lama (AD 1569-1662) wrote down the instructions from this scripture in ordinary letters.
