Lama Zopa Rinpoche recommended in early 2019 that it
would be good for FPMT centers, projects, and services to have access to this
image (PDF) of Guru Shakyamuni Buddha with the Seventeen Pandits.
The Seventeen Pandits, according to “The
Seventeen Pandits of Nalanda Monastery” by the late FPMT student and
Buddhist scholar Dr. James Blumenthal, “refers to a grouping of seventeen of
the most important and influential Mahayana Buddhist masters from India’s past.”
