The Dalai Lama finally reaches the India-Tibet border and is met by the Assam Rifles

(by Tsem Rinpoche and Martin Chow)

Prologue

When the Tibetan leadership first implemented the ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden over 20 years ago, the main reason they gave for the prohibition was that this Protector practice endangers the life of the beloved Tibetan god-king, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. In addition, they said that Dorje Shugden jeopardises the efforts of the Tibetan people to regain their freedom from China and to return to their homeland.

These accusations, in essence, framed Dorje Shugden as the main enemy of the Tibetan people and the Buddhadharma. It falsely positioned Dorje Shugden as a malevolent being whose supposed purpose is to sabotage the success of the Tibetan cause, and hinder the spread of Dharma by supposedly harming the Dalai Lama’s life. By tarnishing, albeit incorrectly, the reputation of this enlightened Dharma Protector, it was the Tibetan leadership’s intention to enrage not only the Tibetans themselves, but global devotees of the Dalai Lama. And they were very effective in doing so; the Tibetan leadership who are based in Dharamsala, North India were able to beguile unsuspecting Tibetan Buddhists into supporting the very unholy enterprise of banning Dorje Shugden’s practice.

In fact, nothing that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA; the Tibetan leadership) says about Dorje Shugden could be further from the truth. There is solid evidence to refute all of the CTA’s false accusations against Dorje Shugden, going back all the way to 1959 and beyond.

 

The 14th Dalai Lama’s Prominence and the Spread of Tibetan Buddhism

Dorje Shugden is a Dharma Protector of the Sakya and Gelug schools of Tibetan Buddhism and prior to the ban in 1996, he was worshipped by virtually all Gelug adherents. It was therefore natural for this Protector to be consulted, via an oracle, for key events ultimately leading to the Dalai Lama’s escape from Tibet in 1959.

The oracle of Dungkar Monastery taking trance of Dorje Shugden. The Dalai Lama wrote the prayer “Melody of the Unceasing Vajra” after meeting Dorje Shugden through this oracle.

In Tibetan Buddhism, it is standard monastic practice for a secretary to take notes of the utterances and advice of an oracle whilst he is in trance of a deity. The assistant then transliterates the oracle’s pronouncements and counsel, which is then checked and certified with the official oracular stamp. It is the same when the oracle of Dorje Shugden takes trance.

Uncovered notes from various consultations with the Panglung Oracle in the late 1950s reveal how Dorje Shugden saved the life of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. With this, Dorje Shugden’s advice effectively saved the Tibetan people’s culture, heritage and religion. This is a far cry from the Tibetan leadership’s assertions that Dorje Shugden wishes to harm the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people.

The 20th Century bore witness to a number of celebrities and public figures who commanded our attention – Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Mikhail Gorbachev, Mao Zedong, Aung San Suu Kyi, Mother Teresa, Elvis Presley, Madonna, Princess Diana, Muhammad Ali, Pele, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Marilyn Monroe, and the Kennedys all stamped their marks on our minds, but no one charmed us as consistently and for such a prolonged period as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

In the wake of the Tibetan diaspora and with the Dalai Lama as inspiration, Tibetan Buddhism gained adherents in Europe, the Americas and the rest of world. Tibetan Buddhist centres and groups sprouted everywhere and even as the Tibetan people struggled to regain their foothold in the global community, their religion which was once contained within the ice-capped mountains of the Himalayas took the world by storm, capturing the imagination of poets, thinkers, academics, spiritualists and activists alike.

Today the 14th Dalai Lama is an established institution and viewed as the single most important symbol of Buddhism. In the past 50 years, the Dalai Lama has developed a public persona akin to being the embodiment of all the best human qualities, rare and precious, in a world that is becoming increasingly degenerate and immoral.

Such is the Dalai Lama’s predominance as a Buddhist figure that most people in the world mistakenly regard him to be the Buddhist equivalent of the Catholic Pope or the absolute head of the Buddhist religion. But what is beyond mistake is that the 14th Dalai Lama became a living reminder in the collective consciousness of the world, of the Tibetan people’s plight and a powerful tribute to their struggle. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to imagine Tibetan Buddhism and the Tibetan struggle without him.

The story of the 14th Dalai Lama is an amazing one. Beginning in a small village in Taktser in the province of Amdo where the Tibetan God-King was born, the Dalai Lama burst sensationally into the public sphere when he escaped from Tibet in 1959. Accounts surrounding the Dalai Lama’s escape have become legendary and yet, until recently, very few knew enough to separate fact from fiction.

 

Events Leading to the Dalai Lama’s 1959 Escape

The Dalai Lama was merely 2 years old when he was discovered and confirmed to be the reincarnation of the great 13th Dalai Lama

A village boy named Lhamo Dhondup was discovered and confirmed to be the reincarnation of the great 13th Dalai Lama

Lhamo Dhondup was only four years old when his childhood came to an abrupt end. Identified as the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama, he was brought from his family home, a farmhouse in Taktser to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. There he was given a new name – Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso which means “Holy Lord, Gentle Glory, Compassionate, Defender of the Faith, Ocean of Wisdom”. His people sometimes referred to him as Yeshe Norbu (the Wish-fulfilling Gem) or Kundun but regardless of how he was named, the truth was that he was no longer an ordinary boy. He was now the 14th Dalai Lama, the human emanation of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion.

When the Dalai Lama was 15 years old, the Chinese army stood poised on the Tibetan border. Civil war in China had seen to the rise of Mao’s Communist Party eager to assert Chinese suzerainty that had been left by the wayside during China’s internal power struggle. In October 1950, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) crossed over into Tibet and one year later, as Tibet’s sovereignty was dissolving, the Dalai Lama was hurriedly invested with full power as Tibet’s absolute ruler. The Tibetans needed a ruler and they needed him now, regardless of whether he was mature enough or sufficiently prepared to deal with complex statecraft.

As Mao’s army pushed towards Lhasa, the Dalai Lama’s government sent urgent pleas to the United Nations to intervene but no help came. Left without a choice, the Dalai Lama retreated to the Indian border to negotiate with China. In May 1951, the 17-Point Agreement was signed between China and Tibet whereupon Tibet surrendered its independence to China on terms that allowed Tibet to retain her autonomy.

The agreement between China and Tibet did not amount to peace between the two nations as the PLA increasingly sought to control various aspects of Tibetan life. Meanwhile, Tibetan resentment over the forced takeover of their homeland mounted. By 1957, it became clear that the 17-Point Agreement was not going to hold and sooner or later, the situation would break, placing the Dalai Lama’s life and the lives of the most important people around him, in danger.

And it is here that the wisdom and compassion of an ancient Tibetan Buddhist deity, Dorje Shugden, towards the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people became clear.

 

A Protector of the Yellow Hat Teachings

Tibetan Buddhism recognises 84,000 different methods that the Buddha used to communicate the Dharma. Within the Vajrayana tradition, it is the grandmasters who have shaped the way the Dharma is understood and absorbed. Considered to be enlightened beings themselves, these grandmasters or Mahasiddhas use their worldly lives and form to teach the Dharma based on what is most potent, given the conditions and circumstances of the time.

Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang, whom the 14th Dalai Lama requested to consult Dorje Shugden for help to escape Tibet in 1959. This is confirmed in Trijang Dorje Chang’s autobiography, “The Illusory Play“.

In the beginning of the 20th Century, the Tibetan Buddhist landscape was dominated by the Gelug school founded by Lama Tsongkhapa, which accounted for most of the Tibetan population. Within the Gelug school, the great Tagphu Pemavajra and Kyabje Pabongka Dechen Nyingpo were perfect embodiments of its founder’s teachings. From these two luminaries, the pure Gelug lineage flowed on to the next generation of lineage masters such as His Holiness Trijang Dorje Chang, His Holiness Ling Dorje Chang, His Holiness Zong Dorje Chang, His Eminence Domo Geshe Rinpoche and not to mention His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

All of these high lamas embraced Dorje Shugden as the most effective Dharma Protector of the time. They taught the practice to their thousands of students, along with the most treasured teachings of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism. In fact, the Dorje Shugden practice began in the 17th Century with the Great 5th Dalai Lama who wrote the first praise to the deity, made the very first statue of the Protector with his own hands, and established the first Protector chapel — Trode Khangsar in Lhasa, Tibet. Many incarnations later, the 11th Dalai Lama enthroned Dorje Shugden as the Protector of the ‘Yellow Hat Teachings’ (the Gelug School of Buddhism). The Great 13th Dalai Lama was also well-documented to have taken Dorje Shugden’s advice on how to stave off foreign threats to Tibet’s sovereignty, which existed even during his time.

Therefore it is no surprise that although there are a number of popular Dharma Protectors in the Gelug lineage – the powerful Pehar whom the Nechung oracle takes trance of, Palden Lhamo, Setrap and Tsangpa, to name but a few – the Protector Dorje Shugden would often be consulted on the most important issues relating to Tibet and the Dalai Lama.

 

Tibet Could Have Been Saved If the People Had Listened to Dorje Shugden

In the fifth volume of The Garland of Jewels: Chronicles of the Successive Emanations of Lord Lokeshvara, there is a passage that indisputably demonstrates how Dorje Shugden has been looking after the Tibetan nation for a long time. The passage reads,

“In the year of the wood dog (1932), in front of Dromo Geshe Rinpoche Ngawang Kalsang -who was a spiritual master in his own right; acknowledged as spiritual mentor by all inhabitants of outer Tibet; whose fame spreads from one direction to the other, Gyalchen Shugden, who is strictly committed to preserve Manjunath’s (Lama Tsongkhapa) legacy, entered his medium (the oracle of Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s monastery, Dunkar). He pronounced:

‘This is the time when Lower Hor rises. As remedial measure, it is vital to renovate the two stupas in the east and west of central Tibet immediately’.”

In essence, Dorje Shugden warned that because of the collective bad karma of the Tibetan nation, they were in danger of invasion from an external force. Dorje Shugden’s advice was quickly communicated to the 13th Dalai Lama who took the Protector’s warning to heart. In order to avoid this karma of the Tibetan nation from ripening, the 13th Dalai Lama renovated the Golden Mausoleum of Lama Tsongkhapa (the stupa in the East) and the Potala Palace (the stupa in the West). To finance these projects, a token tax was levied on every Tibetan and in that way, every single Tibetan came to be involved in the projects. It meant that the merits of renovating the two stupas could be attributed to every Tibetan and to the nation as a whole.

Thus, in spite of the Great 13th Dalai Lama’s general opposition to what he perceived as an over-reliance on oracles which he mistrusted, at the most crucial time and through his own attainments, he saw the wisdom in following the advice of Dorje Shugden. In this way, he averted tragedy to the nation of Tibet. This fact was confirmed by Tibetologist George D. Chryssides in his book, Exploring New Religions (pages 238 and 239).

It is only logical that if Dorje Shugden in his perfect clairvoyance could foresee a threat to Tibet during the time of the 13th Dalai Lama, the Protector would also be able to presage a threat during the reign of the 14th Dalai Lama. And this is precisely what took place in 1957, two years before the Dalai Lama was forced to flee Tibet.

In 1957, a few years after the 17-Point Agreement was signed with China and before Tibet was completely overrun by Mao’s forces, Dorje Shugden saw an opportunity to turn around Tibet’s waning fortunes. The Dalai Lama and both his senior and junior tutors were on a visit to India at the time when, through the 6th Panglung Oracle, Dorje Shugden advised:

“…if Tibet were to engage in a war with the Chinese forces at that time, then the ‘Tibet situation’ would be resolved.”

In retrospect, there was a lot of wisdom and logic in the Protector’s advice. The Dalai Lama and his tutors were safely away in India where they would be out of harm’s way had the Tibetans launched an attack on Chinese camps. That was probably the last opportunity the Dalai Lama had to travel freely out of Tibet.

As an enlightened Protector, Dorje Shugden is able to see beyond the mundane, and it may well be that an attack on the Chinese army would have demoralised the Chinese and dissuaded Mao’s forces from pushing further into the heart of the nation. However, Dorje Shugden’s advice was not heeded and the fact that the Tibetans did not launch an offensive, revealed to the Chinese army how easy it would be to take over all of Tibet.

Twice, the attack on Chinese forces as advised by Dorje Shugden was planned – the first on the 15th day of the 12th month, and the second on the 23rd day of the 12th month. However, on both occasions, excuses were made and Dorje Shugden’s advice was not followed. After the Tibetans failed a second time to launch an attack to save Tibet, the opportunity closed with the return of the Dalai Lama and his retinue to Tibet.

With the situation too risky for a third attempt, Dorje Shugden once again took trance of the Panglung Oracle to address the head of the Chushi Gangdruk (“Four Rivers Six Mountains”), the guerrilla army formed to protect the Dalai Lama and Tibet. Speaking with Andruk Gompo Tashi, Dorje Shugden said that the situation was now dire. Still, the Dharma Protector trusted by the greatest lamas of the time did not abandon the Tibetans to their own karma. Instead, Dorje Shugden began making provisions for what he could foresee would now be an eventuality.

Note:

Some people might wonder why a Buddha like Dorje Shugden would counsel violence and war instead of advocating peaceful means. It is important to understand that whilst the Protector does not favour aggression and brutality, it was already upon the Tibetan people brought about by their karma. A pre-emptive strike as advised by Dorje Shugden would have prevented the bloodshed, countless loss of lives and the destruction of many holy monasteries and sacred sites that ensued.

In the Bodhisattva Vows, we see that although harshness is to be avoided, a practitioner on the Bodhisattva path should not avoid whatever needs to be done for the greater good to be preserved. We see a similar notion in the story of the historical Buddha, who in one of his previous lives was a ship’s captain forced to take the life of a murderous bandit to save the rest of the passengers.

 

Dorje Shugden Made Preparations for the Dalai Lama’s Escape

In the dothey (or nyirtoe), which is a request for Dorje Shugden to manifest his enlightened activities to protect the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa, the Protector is asked to:

Be the war god in my protection; be my messenger and servant.
Be the fort of my protection; be the storekeeper of my people and possessions.
Be the day’s bodyguard; be the night’s watchman.
Be the cloak on my back; be my staff in the front.

Be the bridge over water, and stairs on the rock.
Be those who see me off; be those welcoming me.
Raise me if I fall; if I forget, remind me.
Be the doctor when I fall sick; if poisoned, give me potent remedy.

This potent prayer was composed by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the Junior Tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Similarly, the 14th Dalai Lama also composed a famous prayer to Dorje Shugden titled “Melody of the Unceasing Vajra“, wherein the power of the Protector is invoked to:

Increase Lozang the Victorious One’s Teachings
And the life span and activities of the Teachings’ upholders!
Further the happiness of beings in the Gaden [Podrang] dominion!

In short, in his prayer the Dalai Lama instructed Dorje Shugden to do whatever is necessary to spread Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings. According to the Dalai Lama’s request, Dorje Shugden should accomplish this by protecting the lives of those who are beacons of the lineage and the aspirations of the people of Tibet (‘Gaden Podrang dominion’).

Combining the verses in these two prayers, we can see that Dorje Shugden’s enlightened purpose is to protect the Gelugpa teachings, the lives of the teachings’ upholders and the hopes of the Tibetan people. And these three elements are all embodied in the 14th Dalai Lama, who had to be brought away from danger and into safety.

So, even as Tibetans continued to fail to follow the Dharma Protector’s advice, Dorje Shugden continued to prepare to save them from their own fate. In trance of the Panglung Oracle, Dorje Shugden ordered some Khampa warriors to search for a lake located south of Lhasa. It would be in the shape of Vajrayogini’s flaying knife and there, they should establish a base camp of warriors and wait for instructions. The camp came to be known as Lokha-Chaksta Drikung Thang.

Disbelieving of the future to come, the Khampa warriors were initially very slow to exert themselves. In response, Dorje Shugden took trance repeatedly to remind them to do it until he finally manifested wrath and insisted that they fulfil his instructions. Dorje Shugden then gave them a ceremonial sword that he had used in trance. Later, at the site that he chose, the Khampa warriors uncovered another sword much like that depicted in Manjushri’s iconography. Combined together, the crossed swords became the emblem of the Chushi Gangdruk. Over time, Dorje Shugden in trance sent more and more people to the Chushi Gangdruk camp until there were enough warriors to establish a full battalion.

The emblem of the Chushi Gangdruk consists of a ceremonial sword given to them by Dorje Shugden in trance and another that was uncovered on the site chosen by Dorje Shugden. This preemptive move due to Dorje Shugden’s clairvoyance secured the southern route that in 1959 allowed the Dalai Lama to escape.

The formation of Lokha-Chaksta Drikung Thang as instructed by Dorje Shugden was a critical juncture in the history of the Tibetan people. It made safe the eventual escape route that the Dalai Lama would take in 1959 on his way to exile in India. The formation of this guerrilla base camp also readied a battalion of warriors who would protect the Dalai Lama on this perilous journey, carrying on his shoulders the hopes of the Tibetan people.

Hence those who wrongly accuse Dorje Shugden of wishing to harm the Dalai Lama would be hard-pressed to explain why the Protector had ordered all these pre-emptive steps. Lokha-Chaksta Drikung Thang’s existence is proof of Dorje Shugden’s supreme clairvoyance and the Protector’s intention to secure the life of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama as he had vowed to do so.

 

Dorje Shugden Rescues His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

In his autobiography “The Illusory Play”, Trijang Dorje Chang recounted how the Dalai Lama had trusted Dorje Shugden and had sought the Protector’s advice although there was already existing advice given by the Nechung, Palden Lhamo and Shinjachen oracles.

Just as Dorje Shugden had portended, towards 1959 the situation became increasingly tense in Lhasa. For years before the Dalai Lama’s escape, Khampa guerrillas waged war against Chinese soldiers along the border and the Chinese became impatient. Soon, a plot to capture the Dalai Lama and influential officials of the Tibetan government was uncovered.

In his autobiography The Illusory Play, Trijang Dorje Chang wrote that he summoned the Panglung Oracle to his chambers and invoked Dorje Shugden to ask for the Protector’s advice. Dorje Shugden confirmed that the Chinese were ready to carry out their plans to get rid of the Dalai Lama.

This information was undoubtedly communicated to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who then ordered Trijang Rinpoche to seek further advice from Dorje Shugden. However, Trijang Rinpoche was fully aware that he was being watched and moreover, the Chinese had planted spies everywhere in Lhasa and within the Dalai Lama’s circle.

In his autobiography, Trijang Rinpoche then wrote,

“Following the intentions of the Dalai Lama, I secretly ordered Rato Chowar Rinpoche to go to the Panglung Ritroe to ask Gyalchen Dorje Shugden for his instructions.”

Trijang Rinpoche also sought the help of Sera Mey’s Abbot, Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche, who enlisted the help of his changtso (assistant) Lobsang Yeshe. Together with Rato Chowar Rinpoche, the three monks were the conduits for Dorje Shugden to convey secret plans for the Dalai Lama’s escape to safety.

Just as Dorje Shugden had predicted, on 10th March 1959, a Chinese plot to capture the Dalai Lama, the abbots of the three great monasteries – Ganden, Sera and Drepung – and a number of influential Tibetan personages was uncovered. The plan was to invite the Dalai Lama and these officials to the Chinese army camp in Silimpok, whereupon they would be detained. However, when news broke out that the Dalai Lama’s life was in danger, thousands of Tibetans arrived from every direction and surrounded the Norbulingka (Summer Palace), where the Dalai Lama was, and prevented his departure. In this way, the plan to abduct him was foiled.

Interviews with various monks who served as the Dalai Lama’s bodyguard during his escape into exile, including Changtso Lobsang Yeshe who was instructed to seek advice from Dorje Shugden via the 6th Panglung Oracle. It was Changtso Lobsang Yeshe who attended the trance and asked Dorje Shugden if the Dalai Lama should leave or remain in Tibet, and if there was any danger to his life. Dorje Shugden told Changtso Lobsang Yeshe that His Holiness the Dalai Lama should leave immediately, and specified which route to take. It is thanks to this advice that His Holiness the Dalai Lama is alive today.

On 11th March 1959, six days before the Dalai Lama’s escape, the Panglung Oracle took trance of Dorje Shugden yet again. This time, Dorje Shugden informed Changtso Lobsang Yeshe that another Chinese plan had been set in motion to capture the Dalai Lama and that there was no time to waste. Specific instructions were given, with Dorje Shugden telling Changtso Lobsang Yeshe that the southern route was the only safe route for the Dalai Lama to take.

Because the Chinese army were on high alert for the Dalai Lama’s potential flight into exile, all exit routes and mountain passes out of Tibet were heavily guarded. Only the southern route remained relatively safe for His Holiness, because it was the site of Lokha-Chaksta Drikung Thang. This was Chushi Gangdruk’s base camp which Dorje Shugden had urged the guerrilla army to establish in that area just two years prior. Dorje Shugden had already foreseen that the Dalai Lama’s life would eventually be endangered, and had already taken steps to protect His Holiness.

In George D. Chryssides’s book “Exploring New Religions“, we see how the 13th Dalai Lama had also relied on Dorje Shugden to save Tibet from foreign attacks. This is in contrast to rumours spread by Shugden detractors that the 13th Dalai Lama opposed the Dorje Shugden practice. Click on image to enlarge.

In addition, Dorje Shugden told Changtso Lobsang Yeshe that he would ask the monks of Sera Mey’s Pomra Khangtsen to place their own lives in danger and escort the Dalai Lama to safety. Devoted to the Dalai Lama and to Dorje Shugden, 33 monks from Pomra Khangtsen volunteered for the sacred task.

Dorje Shugden gave each monk a handful of yellow blessed rice and assured them that they would be safe. Decades later, when the ban on Dorje Shugden was imposed, it would be the monks of Pomra Khangtsen who were hardest hit — expelled from Sera Mey Monastery with no choice but to form a new Dorje Shugden monastery, Serpom. Such was, and continues to be, their unwavering devotion to the Dharma Protector.

On 14th March 1959, three days before the Dalai Lama’s escape, Rato Chowar Rinpoche again sought an audience with Dorje Shugden. In trance of the Protector, the Panglung Oracle shot three arrows in the southern direction to again affirm that the Dalai Lama would be safe if he took the southern route out of Tibet. Dorje Shugden then bent a ceremonial sword and gave it to Rato Chowar Rinpoche, with the specific instruction that it should be carried by a Tibetan man bearing the name ‘Dorjee’ at the head of the escape party. Furthermore, before commencing their journey, Dorjee should wave the sword three times in the southern direction.

Changsto Lobsang Yeshe, who was present in the audience, witnessed all of this. Dorje Shugden also handed Changsto Lobsang Yeshe his ceremonial bracelet (pudri), to be given to the Sera Mey Abbot to ensure the safety of the Dalai Lama. The Protector also wrapped a handful of yellow blessed rice in the red silken cloth that he uses in trance, and told Changsto Lobsang Yeshe to burn the blessed rice along the way.

In parting, Dorje Shugden urgently counselled that the Dalai Lama should leave without delay and if his instructions were followed, the Protector would guarantee the safety of the Dalai Lama and his entourage.

The Dalai Lama was a mere teenager when he was hurriedly enthroned even as Tibet’s sovereignty was collapsing

There was little time to waste. A few days later, on the night of 17th March 1959, the Dalai Lama slipped out of Lhasa, disguised as a soldier. He left together with 37 people, including his tutors, family members, abbots, monks and ministers of Gaden Phodrang (the Tibetan government). They were guarded by monks from Sera Mey’s Pomra Khangtsen and warriors of the Chushi Gangdruk, all following precisely the instructions that Gyalchen Dorje Shugden had given them, and following the route the Protector had prepared in anticipation of that fateful day.

The actual thangka of Dorje Shugden that His Holiness the Dalai Lama carried on his back on his journey into exile. Lent to the Dalai Lama by his tutor Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the thangka is credited with keeping His Holiness safe on the treacherous journey. After His Holiness arrived safely in India, the thangka was returned to the care of Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. Today, the thangka occupies a very special and sacred place in Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche's home (Ladrang) in Shar Gaden Monastery.

Two days later, on 19th March 1959, fighting broke out between the Chinese and the Tibetans. The Chinese army’s superior weaponry and training meant the poorly-equipped Tibetan revolt was ruthlessly and swiftly quashed. In a matter of days, the Dalai Lama’s palaces, the great monasteries and countless Tibetan houses were reduced to rubble. It would be another few days before the Chinese realised that the Dalai Lama had escaped. Had Dorje Shugden not advised the Dalai Lama to escape and provided the means for the passage, it is unlikely that the 14th Dalai Lama would be alive today.

The Dalai Lama travelled virtually the entire distance on a brown horse and oftentimes on foot. After crossing the Kyichu River, the escape party travelled along the Brahmaputra River for as far as it took them, and then trekked the Himalayan mountain trails. It was a difficult journey that almost killed the Dalai Lama as he endured storms, blizzards and long stretches without much rest. Along the way, the Dalai Lama and his retinue were beset by exhaustion, fever and disease.

Finally, on 31st March 1959, the Dalai Lama and his escape party crossed safely into India. It is where the Tibetan leadership and exile community have been based for the last 58 years, in 27 major settlements scattered throughout India that were granted to them on a 99-year lease by the government of Jawaharlal Nehru. In these settlements, Tibetans have had the opportunity to re-establish their monasteries, schools and way of life, to preserve as best as possible their culture, traditions and precious religion. All of this was made possible because His Holiness the Dalai Lama was able to escape, thanks to the guidance of Dorje Shugden.

Those on the same journey swear that along the way, they followed the instructions of Gyalchen Dorje Shugden to a tee, offered regular prayers and burnt the yellow rice that the Protector had given them. Countless eyewitness reports confirm that throughout the journey, a belt of clouds shielded the Dalai Lama’s escape party from Chinese surveillance airplanes. Just as the planes flew overhead looking for signs of the convoy contrasted against the pristine white snow, black clouds would form directly above the escape party to obscure them from view.

Years later, many of the Tibetans who escorted the Dalai Lama into exile would also recall that throughout the entire journey, the Dalai Lama carried a rolled-up thangka on his back. Presented to him by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the Dalai Lama did not part with the precious painting even for a moment. Later revealed to be a thangka of the King Protector Gyalchen Dorje Shugden, the sacred image that protected the Dalai Lama was later returned to Trijang Rinpoche, and it can now be found in Trijang Ladrang, South India.

 

Epilogue

On the two-week escape from Tibet to India, the Dalai Lama had to walk significant distances.

It has been 58 years since His Holiness the Dalai Lama trusted Dorje Shugden with his life and made a perilous journey out of Tibet. The spread of the glorious Dharma in the past half century could not have happened without the 14th Dalai Lama. In turn, all this would not have been possible if Dorje Shugden had not secured the southern route that provided safe passage out of Tibet; if Dorje Shugden had not prepared the Chushi Gangdruk to be ready to escort the Dalai Lama to safety; if Dorje Shugden had not given very specific instructions to Changtso Lobsang Yeshe and Rato Chowar Rinpoche who facilitated the Dalai Lama’s escape.

Thus, it is both poignant and ironic that 37 years after Dorje Shugden saved His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and with him, the Tibetan Buddhist religion and the legacy of the Tibetan people, that the same Dharma Protector would be accused of wishing to harm the Dalai Lama and destroy the efforts of the Tibetan people to regain their homeland. If that were to be true, Dorje Shugden need not have helped the 13th Dalai Lama, let alone the 14th Dalai Lama, to avoid what would have been the single greatest tragedy to befall the nation and people of Tibet.

Today, on the 14th Dalai Lama’s official website and in the Dalai Lama’s autobiography, Freedom In Exile, the Dalai Lama credits the Nechung Oracle for having saved him. On the same official website, His Holiness the Dalai Lama dedicates a special section for Dorje Shugden, referring to the deity as a spirit whose practice should be banned because it harms the Buddhadharma.

The Dalai Lama’s government, today known as the Central Tibetan Administration, paints a false picture of Dorje Shugden as a vicious spirit that promotes sectarian cultism. And yet, as any visitor to a Shugden temple or monastery will attest to, the same centres also advocate the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa, which Dorje Shugden swore an oath to protect. And to this day, despite all that has been said against him by the very same people he did so much to help, Dorje Shugden continues to assist anyone who invokes his help in their Dharma practice. If something was ever going to be considered the mark of an enlightened mind that is free from ego and self-grasping, that would be it.

Below are translations of monastic notes confirming that Dorje Shugden foresaw that the Dalai Lama’s life would be in danger and that Tibet would be lost. As the notes show, Dorje Shugden had given advice that would have averted Tibet’s eventual loss but this advice was not heeded. Dorje Shugden in his clairvoyance then established the Chushi Gangdruk base camp in the south that enabled the Dalai Lama to flee to safety in 1959. The notes also show how Dorje Shugden gave precise instructions for the Dalai Lama to follow in his escape. All these notes were certified by Sera Mey Monastery, who today rejects Dorje Shugden.

    History itself teaches us valuable lessons be it as a whole or individual. Had the advice given by Dorje Shugden being excuted earlier, the history will change but then what can it be? We can only learn from day to day and to those who holds position in the government should do their best, at least for the benefit of the people as whole.

    For me, I was touched by the monks who spoke of the escape and especially the monk who was tearful in the video. They have been accused for harming H.H. The Dalai Lama, even after risking their own to save His Holiness’s life. Later on, one only can imagine what they have gone through for being scrutinised and placed under the watchful eyes of their own people for practising Dorje Shugden and for telling the truth. For this, I felt immense sadness as what ‘s in samsara other than sufferings itself. Like Rinpoche has said, there’s nothing glory in samsara, not even having fame, position , money and etc.

    I hope many will realise the truth after reading this article.

  2. JP on Jan 14, 2018 at 2:18 pm

    Thank you Martin for the article. It is fascinating how Tibetans infuse spirituality into their government affairs by consulting the oracle in trance for important matters such as HH the Dalai Lama and the country. However, I also realised how selective they are when following advice given by Dorje Shugden via the proctector. They choose to focus on their fears and limited wisdom than follow Dorje Shugden’s advice to strike agains the Chinese army in order to protect Tibet.

    Unfortunately for Tibetans, they lost their country as a result. I believe this is also a result of the collective negative karma of Tibetans. Although there are so much historical facts and people who are still alive who escaped with HH the Dalai Lama, the Tibetan leaders have the audacity to lie that Nechung helped them escape Tibet.

    When more people read about these historical accounts, they will begin to question the govt’s hidden political agenda and lose faith and confidence in them.

  3. Joy Kam on Jan 13, 2018 at 5:25 am

    Thanks Martin for drawing out the crucial points of the events that led up to the escape of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the safety of the beacons of the lineage and the aspirations of the people of Tibet.

    Knowing that Tibetans could have been saved by Dorje Shugden but because of their very relaxed attitude, the warnings from the protector were not heeded and instructions not followed. Tibetans should by right be very ashamed of this tragedy instead of blaming Dorje Shugden. It just goes to show sorry to say, how lazy and corrupt minded the Tibetans are and how it must be their negative karma ripening that prevented them from receiving good advice from the protector. It also makes me furious because so much help was given to these people and that not only did they take the protector’s advice to save their country for granted, now they twist it around to blame and condemn Dorje Shugden.

    This is the kind of attitude we are dealing with, and it gives very little hope that they will ever change. This is what’s going to create more negative karma whereby they will eventually lose even their identity because of so much disunity created by the Tibetan leadership. I think it is time for the people to stand and speak up and expose the corrupt. The Tibetan leadership should apologise to Dorje Shugden and all practitioners for years of persecution, suffering, pain, losses the Central Tibetan Administration has caused them. Very sad and very ungrateful.

  4. June Kang on Jan 10, 2018 at 8:19 am

    Dorje Shugden continues to assist anyone who invokes his help in their Dharma practice. Therefore not surprise that Dorje Shugden saved the HH Dalai Lama. And the evidence provided in this article strongly supported this. The HH Dalai Lama has spread Buddhism widely to the world and because of him Dorje Shugden become popular. This is good because Dorje Shugden is our time of protector, powerful and fast to help us in our Dharma practice. I believe that the HH Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden are in the same mindstream., both are working together for Dharma to grow in the Dharma degenerate time. Thank you Martin for sharing this article in order for the world to know the truth.

  5. Pastor Chia on Jan 10, 2018 at 7:01 am

    This is the great article show enlighten protector like Dorje Shugden does exist in this modern age. It better people have faith and trust all the way and never have doubt whatever happen. It took century for tibetan to realise how compassion Dorje Shugden ready are. Whatever he get abondan or accusing as evil spirit. Dorje Shugden still helping to save tibet and tibetan. It move me a lot how kind Dorje Shugden are and gain faith to do his practice.

  6. Pastor Antoinette on Jan 10, 2018 at 6:55 am

    This write up of what happened prior to 1959 and during the escape of the 14th Dalai Lama shows the enlightened nature of Dorje Shugden. Even though he advised ways to prevent the loss of the country, the advise was not followed and even later Dorje Shugden had to use wrathful ways to safeguard the escape of the Dalai Lama in the future. This shows the clairvoyance of Dorje Shugden and that he will never do anything harmful as he is a Buddha in nature.

    Yet, now Tibetan Buddhism has spread all over the world and we are very fortunate to learn about the powerful practices. Everyone can request Dorje Shugden for help, the main part is to request from the heart and if our request is beneficial to us, we will receive help, not necessary according to our plan but for sure for our greater benefit. Here is a prayer which everyone is allowed to do: A short prayer to Dorje Shugden http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/a-short-prayer-to-dorje-shugden.html

    May we always be close to Dorje Shugden.

  7. Pastor Albert on Jan 10, 2018 at 6:38 am

    To be very honest, at that point of time, choosing to leave Tibet to run across to another country does take a lot of courage, mostly, people will choose a place to hide in their homeland, by hoping the war will end soon and they can return home, but leaving the country means they have to start everything all over again in a foreign land. Hence for Dalai Lama to follow the prophecy of Dorje Shugden, beside having courage, it also take great faith in order to follow the instruction.

    From this, we can clearly sees that how accurate Dorje Shugden’s prophecy is that resulted in the Buddhist world today, if it’s not because of Dalai Lama’s spreading of Dharma, Buddhism will not be what it is today, so widely spread. And if it is not because of Dalai Lama, Dorje Shugden will not be a popular today.

    That’s why I always believe that Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden are in the same mindstream, they are working together to make Dharma grow stronger and bigger in the world, but due to the degenerate age, they have to use the unconventional way to promote the Dharma.

  8. Julia Tan on Jan 10, 2018 at 1:28 am

    Terrified experience during the escape. The journey was harsh yet safe. Those who left with HHDL settled down in India due to the kindness of the president of India. From India many high lamas stretched their wings and started teachings in the west. Hence spread the Vajrayana Buddhism to the west today.

    If Tibetan is grateful to HHDL who being the hero for all Tibetan, escaped from China, protecting his people, preserving the Dharma, saving thousands of Tibetans lives etc, then HHDL and the Tibetan should also be grateful to Dorje Shugden, due to all the effort and help during the time of escaping from Tibet. HHDL and all the high lamas and tulkus won’t be able to make it to India. Dorje Shugden has been a great protector to the Tibetans for the last many hundred years. He is there for the benefit of Tibet and HHDL. Hence today’s Dorje Shugden ban just to show the world that how ungrateful Tibetan is to Dorje Shugden. How can you practice compassion but abandoning someone who’d helped you unconditionally.

  9. Tek Lee on Jan 10, 2018 at 12:27 am

    Dorje Shugden is truly a Buddha. He is so compassionate that although the Tibetan didn’t follow all his instruction, he still arrange the Chushi Gangdruk to protect The Dalai Lama so that he was not harmed along the way to Dharamsala. Yet, today CTA accuses Dorje Shugden is a spirit.
    It is ours and the Tibetan Buddhism faith also, if that time The Dalai Lama didn’t flee to India, Tibetan Buddhism wouldn’t be spread to every corner of the world, as Tibetan Buddhism used to be a close practice. And partially because of that also, now Dorje Shugden is widely spread in China. more and more people are benefited by practicing Dorje Shugden. 🙏🙏

  10. Pastor Henry Ooi on Jan 9, 2018 at 11:02 pm

    I wonder if it was faith by the advisors and staff of HH 14th Dalai Lama in Dorje Shugden’s prophecy or it was out of sheer desperation that they follow the instructions. I think it was the latter because if it was out of faith then they would have seriously done what Dorje Shugden asked them to do prior to 1959.

    These are not just stories told at camp fires or by story tellers, these narrations are backed with written accounts and evidences.

    Tibetan Buddhism is alive and growing today thanks to the prophecy and protection of Dorje Shugden and the tireless dharma work of HHDL across the globe. If Tibet had remained as it was and HHDL had not left Tibet, Tibetan Buddhism might not have been so popular as it is now in many countries around the world. This is the main work of Dorje Shugden, to protect the dharma teachings of Je Tsongkhapa. And in doing so, saved the life of HHDL.

  11. Andrea Lai on Jan 9, 2018 at 10:55 pm

    Interesting article to read. The story has been simplified and in detailed, on how and who helps the Dalai Lama escape from Tibet to India.
    I like the part when Dalai Lama on his journey escape to India, miracle events such as cloud appeared to shield eyesight from China surveillance airplanes. This proof the power and abilities of the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden that help and make their journey safe and obstacles free. The Dalai Lama was so blessed and protected to have DS thangka on his back throughout the journey.
    Therefore, without the protection of Dorje Shugden that aid the escape, until today His Holiness will not be able spread Dharma worldwide. Thank you Martin and Rinpoche for sharing this article.

  12. nicholas on Jan 9, 2018 at 10:46 pm

    This article gave a clear picture of how compassionate Dorje Shugden is to continuously help His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans. With Dorje Shugden clairvoyance, numerous advices had been given but due to some of the Tibetan that not trusted Dorje Shugden it has not been follow and resulted the lost of Tibet but at very least at the very desperate moment they still followed and managed to escape for India. This should be a great lesson and to prove that Dorje Shugden is a trust worthy enlightened protector. Many people have been blurred or misguided by the Tibetan leadership to discriminate Dorje Shugden as spirits without checking the background and the history.

    The truth can never be untruth and thanks to Martin for this article to give the evidence of how Dorje Shugden has been the one that always there for His Holiness and the Tibetans.

  13. pammie yap on Jan 9, 2018 at 10:38 pm

    I especially love this post! It shows many evidences of how Dorje Shugden is a Buddha who is so compassionate and clairvoyant. The pitiful part is when Dorje Shugden gave so many advice and yet they choose to ignore it. The bright side is how even though Tibet is lost, HHDL and Tibetan Buddhism spread across the world and many people benefit from it.
    With so many witnesses and proof, HHDL and the CTA should really stop ‘defaming’ Dorje Shugden. Twenty years of wrong accusations even though His pure intentions was to protect the Tibetans, the Dharma and the pure Gelug lineage. Even till today, His intentions are still pure and beneficial (http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-farm-of-your-mind.html).

  14. justin cheah on Jan 9, 2018 at 10:14 pm

    There were no trust on Dorje Shugden basically and that is the downfall of Tibet basically. We can talk about the collective bad karmas but the monks didn’t follow fully to the instructions given by Dorje Shugden MANY times. I felt there was no trust from the monks to Dorje Shugden that led to they became desperate to finally heed the advice given for fearing of losing the Dalai Lama. God knows what would they have prevented had they listened to the Protector whom Trijang Rinpoche advised!

    Nevertheless, Buddhism spreaded far and wide to other continents and even jokers like me are connected with Buddhism, talking about the effects of Tibet being over taken by China. I am not saying the violences are good but Tibetan Buddhism wouldn’t have reached to me and other people especially in the West had China not invaded Tibet and monks left Tibet to India.

  15. jitendra kardam on Jan 7, 2018 at 5:35 am

    Very enlightening indeed. A Thrilling experience

  16. freon on Jan 4, 2018 at 6:41 pm

    From this article, I have learned that H.H Dalai Lama have been helped by Dorje Shugden to escape to India heavily and skillfully.

    The escape was planned 2 years before the Chinese Troop invaded Tibet! First with the established of Lokha-Chaksta Drikung Thang, a base camp name Chushi Gangdruk based south of Lhasa by Khampa warriors and eventually other warriors is form. This camp have secure the south of Lhasa route , if not Dalai Lama have no way to escape as the whole Tibet route is heavily guarded by the Chinese.

    In addition, Dorje Shugden told Changtso Lobsang Yeshe that he would ask the monks of Sera Mey’s Pomra Khangtsen to place their own lives in danger and escort the Dalai Lama to safety. In here, I think the reasons that Dorje Shugden selected these monks from Sera Mey, because they are the hard-core devotees to Dorje Shugden. Thus, we read in the following where these monks follow exactly what have Dorje Shugden asked to do and they do it daily. And later on when the ban of Dorje Shugden was imposed, they do not abandon Dorje Shugden but established another temple- Serpom to pray to Dorje Shugden. From here, I learned to trust in Dorje Shugden fully, no matter what happened, Dorje Shugden will guide us to pass our obstacles. And when we trust in Dorje Shugden fully, it is easier for us to help in dharma because Dorje Shugden will also trust us that we could perform our job well.

    “On the night of 17th March 1959, the Dalai Lama slipped out of Lhasa, disguised as a soldier guarded by 33 monks from Sera Mey’s Pomra Khangtsen and warriors of the Chushi Gangdruk left together with 37 people to India. The Dalai Lama travelled virtually the entire distance on a brown horse and oftentimes on foot. After crossing the Kyichu River, the escape party travelled along the Brahmaputra River for as far as it took them, and then trekked the Himalayan mountain trails”. Imagine 37 people and travel on horses; without protection from Dorje Shugden it is very easy to trace these group of peoples. The big troop and the colors of the horses is contrast to the snowy environment, and at the same time the Chinese took plane to fly over the area trying to locate them but failed. Logically saying, how can this be? Thus, without protection from Dorje Shugden, this troop can’t be success. In today’s world, to cross over Himalayan mountain is still a challenge, don’t mentioned the troop left Tibet in hurried and without much advance equipment as today. How could they survive in such a harsh environment!

    It is very convenient to blame self-failure to a Buddha so that there is no responsible taken. I think in this world, the only leaders openly blame the political failure onto a Buddha. If Dorje Shugden wanted to harm the Tibetans and Dalai Lama, Dorje Shugden will not help so much involve in depth to help Dalai Lama and Tibetan cross to India. It is so illogical!

    In addition, Dorje Shugden is propitiate by many highly attain masters for decades how could Dorje Shugden cause harm to any lama, and, not to forget Dorje Shugden himself is also a Lama.

  17. Datuk May on Jan 4, 2018 at 3:08 pm

    When history is recalled, it is by far very much into the past. Of such recollection it may well be difficult to counter any falsification of facts. However in the instance of Tibet and China, it was only happened 58 years ago and there are living individuals that can attest and prove the truth.

    For as long as 20 years, the Tibetan leaders in exile (CTA) had been giving false historical accounts of Protector Dorje Shugden, as to how Dorje Shugden harms the Dalai Lama and the cause for the loss of Tibet to China.

    Having collected evidence as contained in this article, it is my hope that the practice of altering history to suit political agenda of CTA be eradicated and the truth of the true happenings with the escape to safety of the Dalai Lama is known to all.

    With deepest appreciation to H.E the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and Martin Chow for telling the truth and exposing the false accusations against Dorje Shugden.

  18. Su Ming on Jan 2, 2018 at 3:05 am

    When anyone in the West speaks about Tibet, naturally “Shangri-La” comes to mind. Often, China has been accused harshly in invading Tibet ruthlessly without basis but from this article, it clearly states that actually the Tibetan government has signed over Tibet during the 17th point agreement with China in 1951. This was the point that struck me the most when we were discussing on this article earlier.

    If only the Tibetans listened to Dorje Shugden and strengthen their army, the country would not have been so easily invaded by the Chinese. This makes a lot of sense. Even though China has a bigger pool of army and resources BUT Tibet terrain was not an easy environment to adapt to for the Chinese with the bitter cold weather and high altitude, they would have been defeated just based on this. Just like how Napolean was defeated in Moscow who lost close to 300k soldiers as the French were not use to the cold bitter winter of Russia.

    At this juncture, I do hope the Tibetans especially more the government officials repent and realised their long history of mistakes…the tide can still turn if they change their methods for the bigger picture in preserving the dharma

  19. Vivian Ong on Jan 2, 2018 at 1:31 am

    This is indeed an interesting article about who saved the Dalai Lama. It was Trijang Rinpoche and also Dorje Shugden who saved the 14th Dalai Lama when he left Tibet to India. Dorje Shugden took trance and gave advice on what to do and which route to take so that Dalai Lama will be save from harm. So, it is illogical for Dalai Lama to put a ban on Dorje Shugden.

  20. Wylfred Ng on Dec 31, 2017 at 3:09 am

    谢谢仁波切和Martin 的分享。

    这篇文章的资料和视频是多么的珍贵!! 资料非常明确的记录了1959年之前多杰雄登如何为第十四世达赖喇嘛逃离西藏做的铺排, 还有在1959年多杰雄登如何给予准确的指示, 还有加持, 让第十四世达赖喇嘛顺利逃离西藏。 还有视频访问和记录了当时护送达赖喇嘛离开西藏的团队, 让我们可以还原当年所发生的事情。

    总总资料都证明当时多杰雄登法门在西藏是多么的普遍, 寺院都供奉多杰雄登, 而且很多大师如赤江仁波切都依靠多杰雄登的占卜, 包括达赖喇嘛也是相信多杰雄登。 当时达赖喇嘛也在逃亡时全程都背者赤江仁波切的多杰雄登唐卡。

    不过在现在, 多杰雄登被藏人行政中央说成是邪灵, 会伤害达赖喇嘛、 会破坏西藏事业等等。 这些都是无稽之谈。 如果多杰雄登真的是邪灵, 要伤害达赖喇嘛的话, 多杰雄登就不会帮助达赖喇嘛离开西藏。 如果达赖喇嘛没有离开西藏, 藏人西藏中央也不会存在。

    希望更多人可以看到这篇文章, 让更多人知道当年是多杰雄登帮助达赖喇嘛离开西藏。 藏传佛教得以保存, 很大的原因都是因为多杰雄登。

    谢谢。

  21. Sock Wan on Dec 31, 2017 at 12:15 am

    Thank you Martin for this wonderful article. Now we have proof that it was Dorje Shugden who saved the 14th Dalai Lama. Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being and His purpose is to protect Dharma and Dharma practitioners. If He wanted to harm His Holiness, He could have done it at that time, He could have given wrong instructions to His Holiness and caused His Holiness to die, but He didn’t. Therefore, there is no reason Dorje Shugden wants to harm His Holiness.

    Many evidences have been given to prove Dorje Shugden has been wrongly accused for the crimes He did not commit. CTA must remove the ban on Dorje Shugden, the ban has caused more damages to the Tibetan community in exile than benefits. The only person who benefitted from the ban is CTA, they successfully distract people’s attention away from their failure to give the best to their people and failure in getting their country back.

  22. Anne Ong on Dec 30, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    Dear Martin,

    This is a great write up which has a lot of epic, plot, truth, evidence and proof of Dorje Shugden giving advice via oracle trying to save Tibet and H.H 14th Dalai Lama to leave Tibet. It is sad that Nechung takes the credit for being the saviour of H.H 14th Dalai Lama instead of Dorje Shugden. Few other great Dalai Lama and H.H 14th Dalai Lama himself also wrote prayer to Dorje Shugden and also carried a beautiful Dorje Shugden Thangka for protection on horseback during his escape from Tibet. Hope H.H 14th Dalai Lama would admit this one day and be grateful to Dorje Shugden for saving his life. Thank you very much Rinpoche and Martin for highlighting this truthful event.🙏 . Hope to read more great materials from you again Martin. Do keep up with your all time great works👍😍

    Religion is the results of our practise. We choose a religion due to the blessings that led us on to the right path. The path is filled with Dharma that we apply in order for a complete turnabout of our attitude and the way we see things to happen. This would mean whatever that irks us, will no longer have an effect on us. The beauty of applying the Dharma and treating the Dharma as personal advice for us, help us to clear the irk worms that have been bred out of control before we meet the Dharma. These worms are vicious, vindictive, harmful, envious, arrogant, greedy, furious, ignorant, doubtful, and etc. that are bred by the negative thoughts, experiences and perceptions we had for as long as we live. The mind is so used to them to the point to believe that the (our) reality is pure negative.

    When we come to the Dharma, having given the knowledge and guidance by our compassionate and kind Guru who finds ways to help us with our transformation, to constantly give love and care while exposing our irk worms skilfully and creatively, we should be grateful and appreciative the kindness by transforming our mind. We might not like the methods the Guru use, but we can be assured that the motivation behind is of the purest and highest for our ultimate enlightenment. The Guru’s ‘job’ is to help us to liberate us from ourselves – the self that never existed but overwhelmingly coated with irk worms.

    When we have the blessings to meet the Dharma that is skillfully presented to us by our Guru, the moment we step into the Guru’s mandala, he or she is already paving the path for irk worms’ exposition in order for us to heal from our delusional mind. It is, therefore, our matter to deal with when we are irked. Instead of spending all energies into defending and justifying, we internalized the Dharma and cooperate with our Guru to cleanse the irk worms from our mind permanently.

    Unbelievable facts ……..which I did not know till I read this post except every time you sneeze your heart stops a second and all babies are colour-blind when they are born. I read it from medical journal. Many of those facts are new and first time learning…..to name a few….. the lighter was invented before the match, in space, astronauts cannot cry because there is no gravity and hummingbirds are the only creatures that can fly backwards. Sound unbelievable and amazing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Interesting…….any thing related to unseen being stories , historical sites and discoveries I always enjoyed reading and to know. Came across this post and I do enjoyed reading. The sea can be a haunted place, too. There have been dozens of ghost ships spotted floating around the sea could not imagined that. Vessel with no living crew aboard with things intact, and it may be a ghostly vessel and scary. Stories about ghost ships, vanishing into thin air or mysterious vessels found sailing the oceans with no one aboard.
    The mystery of the Arctic ghost ship Baychimo which abandoned 1914 cargo vessel and drifted for decades found after about 40 years ….really buffed me. All these mysterious ships are fantasized and fearsome . Some of these haunted ships continue to provoke speculation and fearful anticipation even till now.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting post.

    Wow ……beautiful poem by Maching Labdron.
    She was believed to be an Mind Stream emanation (tulku) of Yeshe Tsogyal, as well as “an emanation of the ‘Great Mother of Wisdom. She was well thought of as a Tibetan tantric Buddhist practitioner, teacher and yogini. Machig had been an Indian yogi in her previous life. Very inspiring and beautiful filled with wisdom, worthy words to remind us all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Poor Angel dog chained to the wall ………so inhuman and cruel to let the suffering dog to die in such a manner. Not only that Angie was abandoned in the first place and she was starve to death. Why can’ nt the former owner just leave Angie alone. Sad to see Angie condition, skinny and suffering in pain before dying.
    The authority concerned must stop this cruelty from happening and put a heavy fine if caught the culprit who did it. Do not hurt them , care and love them or at least put them in a home. Do hope more will people speak up against animal cruelty and bring awareness around.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Wonderful new …..FBI doing something which many people have not seen before. They are trying stop more serious crime happening by taking action to make animal cruelty an offence. People who cause harm to animals will be prosecuted like homicide, arson and assault . Several FBI studies show that serial killers start their lives as sociopaths by torturing or killing pets and later turns aggressive and violence against people later in life if it goes unchecked.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    It is very touching to see birds capable of emotions and feelings that we thought only humans and mammals are capable of. I felt that the mourning is a powerful display of the understanding of loss, which is very rare. I hope the lovebirds will find each other in their next life. Thank you for this sharing.

    Like what Rinpoche said …….(There is no right and wrong religion for you to personally follow…) Different religions and faith teachings are all the same having the same aim. To be kind ,helpful, compassion ,not to harm in any way and to do good . Whatever religion we practice as long we are comfortable and feels it can helps to transform our mind to be a better person. It is very important to have harmony and respect amongst the different religions and their practitioners. As long we have better understanding, enhance tolerance and build acceptance in each other different religious beliefs.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Yin yang is a complex concept in Chinese culture that has developed over thousands of years. They have been applying the concept of yin and yang in their daily lives. Taoists believe that the path to wisdom and happiness involves emptying the mind and settling into a deep stillness. What I understand from those beautiful words is learning to let go, while staying detached and behaving simply. We will see our effectiveness grow , do not glorify ourselves and always display ourselves in a humble manner.
    Thank you Rinpoche for these great words of wisdom

    Power and powerful positions have most often been associated with male as opposed to female gender. But now more and more female are in positions of power. Across the world more female are working than ever before, and are very successful holding the top post. In Kechara itself is so blessed with many powerful female energy.
    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing .

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it. In this way I have been introducing Dorje Shugden to the world. I know Shugden is good and will help so many and that is why I do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

 This is so good. I need to remember this and not allow people to do this to me anymore. Being kind is one thing, but when they are doing it and it harms, it is not a matter of kindness anymore but taking advantage.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    3 months ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
