When JeTsongkhapa was Born

Buddha Shakamuni said that Manjushri would be born in The Land of the Snows in 1357 to 1419. JeTsongkhapa lived in Tibet, The Land of the Snows during 1357 to 1419. He was born in 1357 and a drop of the blood from his mother fell to the ground. A white sandal tree grew in that spot. There were one hundred thousand  leaves on the tree with images of Manjushri and Manjushri's mantra 
The leaves were considered very precious, and when they fell in Autumn the people would gather them and grind them into a powder. Through tasting this powder many people have been able to cure disease and gain wisdom.
