Weekly practice of the Guru Yoga of Tsongkhapa. The Dharma talk is, "The Bodies of a Buddha." In the seven-limb prayer we refer to Tsongkhapa's "truth body" and "vajra body." We also say that the vajra body is "visible to the ordinary viewer only in its unsubtle, physical form." Tenzin will explain the meaning of these words.
