Can the Dalai Lama say this one day?

Dear friends,

These are some thoughts I came up with. I am hoping one day His Holiness the Dalai Lama will speak these words but of course in his own special and charismatic way. I do not mean any of these memes to mock His Holiness the Dalai Lama. I would never do that. But the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners has been happening since 1996 and it has been repressive, severe and heartbreaking to say the least. So much confusion, hatred and disharmony within Tibetan Buddhists have been created due to the segregation against Dorje Shugden followers. I don’t think any human being should be segregated due to their religion, spiritual choices, race, economic background or sexual orientation. Life is short and let it be. Anti Shugden people say you can build your own temples, worship as you like but stay away. Stay away? That is like how lepers were treated hundreds of years ago. How people of color were treated even as recent as a hundred years ago and even now in some places. You cannot say I have religious freedom on the one hand and on the other hand if I practice Dorje Shugden you cannot eat with me, associate with me and unfriend me. Also call me evil and warn me I am going to hell??! Doesn’t something sound wrong with that? And all on the basis of this one single difference from me to you which is I practice Dorje Shugden and you don’t. That is ridiculous. The ban must come down. Segregation due to political, religious or racial differences must stop. His Holiness the Dalai Lama should speak up about uniting everyone including Dorje Shugden followers. We are people too. We deserve equal rights, respect and dignity also.

Hence these memes are something I wish His Holiness the Dalai Lama will say very soon and bring harmony. He has the power to bring harmony within Tibetan Buddhists again. I respectfully request His Holiness to do this. I fold my hands and beg His Holiness the Dalai Lama to do so. Please bring the ban down.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

Do please save these memes and share with others in order to create awareness. Thank you.

 


 

亲爱的朋友,

这是我的一些想法。我希望有一天,达赖喇嘛尊者会说这些话,不过当然是以他自己特殊及充满感召力的方式来发表。我并不是利用这些趣味图来嘲弄达赖喇嘛尊者。我永远不会这样做。自1996年开始,对多杰雄登持修者的禁令是非常压抑、严重和令人痛心的。由于多杰雄登持修者被隔离,这在藏传佛教徒之间造成了太多的困惑、仇恨及不和谐。我不觉得任何人应该因为他们的宗教、精神信仰、种族、经济背景或性取向而被隔离。生命是短暂而且应该让它如此。反对雄登持修的人说,你可以建立自己的寺院、随你意地持修雄登,不过你必须远离我们。 远离?一百年前人们是如此地对待麻疯病患者。这是有色人种在最近的一百年里仍然在某些地方遭受的待遇。你不能一方面说我有宗教自由,另一方面因为我持修多杰雄登而不能和我一起吃饭、联系以及与我有友好关系。说我邪恶,并警告我说我将下地狱??!这听起来难道不觉得不对劲吗?这一切就只是基于我和你之间的单一区别——我持修多杰雄登而你不持修。这是荒谬的。这项禁令必须解除。因政治、宗教或种族差异的隔离必须停止。达赖喇嘛尊者应该开口呼吁大家团结,包括多杰雄登的持修者。我们也是人。我们应该得到平等的权利、尊重和尊严也。

因此,这些趣味图是我希望达赖喇嘛尊者将在近期内所会说的话,促成和谐。尊者有能力在藏传佛教徒之间促进和谐。我谨请达赖喇嘛尊者这样做。我双手合十,恳求达赖喇嘛尊者这样做。请解除禁令。

谦卑地恳求,詹杜固仁波切

尽请保存这些趣味图,并与他人分享,为此课题建立意识。 谢谢。

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    Yes, I’m sure His Holiness The Dalai Lama will say this very soon. I pray and hope His Holiness The Dalai Lama will make an official statement before Rinpoche’s birthday in October so that Rinpoche and all Dorje Shugden practitioners can rejoice to practice Dorje Shugden with freedom,peace,harmony and uniity.-_/\_

  3. Jennifer Yuen on Jun 29, 2016 at 3:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and team for creating the memes for awareness! It’s been 20 years since the Dorje Shugden ban was imposed. It would end the division amongst the Tibetan community & Buddhist practitioners, and the suffering many Tibetan DS practitioners have been enduring if the Dalai Lama decided to lift the ban tomorrow. May the lifting of the ban become a reality soon!

  4. yikming on Jun 27, 2016 at 9:10 am

    Take the ban Down so that we stop the sufferings of those who wish to follow propitiating Dorje Shugden as was pass down from their Guru and their Gurus and proven lineage. We look forward to the day that the memes become reality. Living in harmony and freedom of practice as long as it does not hurt other sentient being should be a given.
    Thanks Guru for creating the Memes to plant the seed to bring down the Ban. _/|\_

  5. CindyH on Jun 25, 2016 at 1:07 am

    The reality of the situation is that to date, Dorje Shugden practitioners are subjected to discrimination, hostilities and even hate crimes (both physically and online) on a daily basis ever since the fateful day in 1996 where the Dalai Lama first triggered the ban on Dorje Shugden practice. Following such cue from the Dalai Lama, the Central Tibetan Administration/CTA (who has always been at the Dalai Lama’s beck and call) and the Dalai Lama’s overzealous supporters didn’t hesitate to carry out actions which they think is in line with the Dalai Lama’s intention to stamp out Dorje Shugden practice, not caring that their actions are infringing the rights of Dorje Shugden practitioners on religious freedom or even that such acts constituted the breach of the Tibetan Constitution. Yet the omission or failure of the Dalai Lama to “address and correct” the human rights atrocities which were committed against the Dorje Shugden practitioners to date, appears to suggest that the Dalai Lama condones such unconscionable actions. Thus, many are puzzled (and some repulsed) by the hypocrisy of the Dalai Lama in espousing peace, harmony, compassion and tolerance and even liberally dispensing advices to other country leaders (e.g.: about tolerance for ISIS (http://www.dorjeshugden.com/all-articles/news/the-dalai-lama-respects-terrorists-but-not-shugden-buddhists/) , moral responsibilities to sort out Rohingya issue (http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/06/dalai-lama-asks-suu-kyi-ease-muslim-buddhist-tension-160614162727088.html) but seemingly oblivious to the pain and suffering of Dorje Shugden practitioners at his own turf. In any event, the ban which has been around for almost 20 years has brought about much damage and harm to Dorje Shugden practitioners and non-practitioners alike. Hence the beauty of the memes in that the core message of the memes appear to be to seek for the lifting of the ban through logic/reasoning with a focus on moving forward without the need for any blame. This approach is in tandem with the belief that compassion should be geared towards eliminating suffering of ALL sentient beings. May the ban be lifted soon and the sufferings and harm on both sides be alleviated.

  6. graceleong on Jun 24, 2016 at 11:47 pm

    “Can the Dalai Lama say this one day ” ? YES

    The memes would plant positive seeds in most people’s minds regarding the subject of Dorje Shugden; a much needed thing at this point as Dorje Shugden has been wrongly “downgraded” by the current degenerated minds of Buddhist practitioners.
    Also, it may neutralise any negativity which people may have on the Dalai Lama or the Dharma, arising from the ban on Dorje Shugden. The memes are polite, positive and talks about moving forward. Thank you Rinpoche and the writers for all these creative work to help bring down the ban. We will all be looking forward to this happening 🙂

  7. Fong on Jun 24, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    For the sake of caring for the minds of many Buddhist especially Tibetan Buddhists, I really hope that the Dalai Lama will say the many phrases in the memes. For many, this ban is very confusing and for beginners it is doubly so. It may lead to their leaving the Dharma which may harm their future lives.

    For many whose lives are being turned upside down by the discrimination and segregation, it is very painful. Bodhisattvas come back to Samsara to help alleviate the suffering of beings. So, is this a way of making these people experience their negative karma and suffering so as to expunge them?

    Whatever, it is, as human beings in this Samsara in this time and age, we can use all the compassion we can get to help reduce our suffering. And, if Dharma is the way out of it, may our ignorance be expunge here so that we may have the merits to move forward in our quest to exit Samsara.

    The Dalai Lama may have his various reasons for the ban, but we can and should appeal for the lifting of the ban. I appeal to The Dalai Lama, a Nobel Peace Prize holder and emanation of the Chenrezig with all the compassion of a Bodhisattva of Compassion to please lift the ban and alleviate sufferings of sentient beings.

  8. Sofi on Jun 24, 2016 at 10:04 pm

    I certainly pray that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama will be able to say he had made a mistake and that Protector Dorje Shugden is enlightened. As such the ban is immediately lifted and everyone is allowed to propitiate this beneficial practise. How wonderful it would be! It would mean relief on so many levels.

    1. All the persecution, abuse, segregation, denial of basic necessities, denial of medical aid, denial of learning, denial of financial aid and most of all, denigration of lineage Masters will end.

    2. The Tibetans-In-Exile will become united again. The families, the monastic communities, friends and associates who had been separated due to difference of choice, will once again be united with acceptance of each other’s practise.

    3. The government of Tibetans-In-Exile (CTA) will be able to focus all the resources from donations/sponsorship into improving the living conditions of the “refugees”, instead of spending huge amount on propaganda against Shugden practitioners.

    4. Without the threats and defamation, faith and trust will grow in the highly attained lineage Masters, creating the cause for them to “Turn the Wheel of Dharma” with more students achieving results.

    5. For me, it will show the humbleness of His Holiness that he is able to acknowledge his “wrong” and that we should rely in our practise, logic and most of all, faith and trust in our own Guru/lineage Gurus.

    Should His Holiness lift the ban on Dorje Shugden, I feel that the Shugden practitioners will “forgive and forget” as they are the practitioners who had focused on the Buddha’s teachings.

  9. Wai Meng Wan on Jun 16, 2016 at 4:41 am

    It is so very important that the Dalai Lama does not persecute and ostracize Dorje Shugden practitioners, lamas and practices.

    Dalai Lama wields considerable power over the Tibetans still and a great deal of opinion amongst a segment of Tibetan Buddhist followers.

  10. Alice Tay on Jun 14, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    如果多杰雄登护法是魔,为什么还有那么多高僧大德依然坚持的持修多杰雄登?

    如果多杰雄登护法会伤害我们,为什么那些高僧大德还依然的长寿健康,慈悲为怀继续地转法轮,传授佛法,甚至还转世回来继续他们的弘扬佛法的宏愿?

    如果多杰雄登护法修持具有危险性,为什么诸多的高僧大德还会将此护法修持传授给他们的弟子?

    针对以上的问题,我们必须要特别深入的思考和研究所有的前因后果。

    在此恳求达赖喇嘛尊者尽快解除雄登禁令,让雄登修持者获取自由。让他们可以继续修持多杰雄登护法,而达到圆满证悟。

    感谢仁波切的分享。希望有更多人看到此博文同时也可以与他人分享这些趣味图。

    Dear Rinpoche,

    May your wishes come true very soon and the all the sufferings and confusions be cleared once and for all. This has gone for many years and so many are under threats 🙁 Only if everything the ban is stopped officially by His Holiness _()_. I wish that His Holiness say that he did to make The Dharmapala Dorji shugden known to many and test the students or practitioners’ devotion.

    Thank you _()_

  12. Edwin Tan on Jan 26, 2016 at 3:36 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the heartfelt and creative memes.

    I too, hope His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be compelled to say those words.

    He is a Nobel Peace Winner, He advocates compassion; yet what are happening to all practitioners of Dorje Shugden do not reflect peace nor compassion.

    We are in such advance of age where tolerance of all religion, tolerance of all races are witnessed everywhere.. yet such great segregation against practitioners of Dorje Shugden.

    I pray that the ban and segregation for DS and practitioners be removed soon.

    Thank you.

  13. Jason on Jan 26, 2016 at 2:37 am

    H.H Dalai Lama always promote compassion .can this be apply to Tibetan Dorje Shugden practitioner.Why Tibetan Dorje Shugden (DS)must be segregation from non DS practitioners until many were suffering?we can’t critsed others people practising because of we don’t practice it. DS is an emanation of Majushri.this fact can’t be denied.many high lama or Rinpoche already practiced long time ago.If DS really demons , why many Rinpoche already reincarnation back ?i am here to plea H.H Dalai Lama uplift the DS ban soon and more sentient beings will get benefit from practice DS .

  14. Pastor Henry Ooi on Jan 25, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    Compassion has no boundary
    Compassion knows no barrier
    Compassion has no limit
    Compassion conquers all.

    These are some examples what compassion means, ultimately bringing lasting happiness to sentient beings. And we know that. All religions teach that. The Dalai Lama teaches that yet when it comes to treating Dorje Shugden practitioners, compassion does not exist. It defies logic why the selectiveness. It boggles the mind why the Dalai Lama sees Dorje Shugden practitioners as not equal as every human is but as pariahs.

    Forget about religion and spirituality, where are the basic human rights? I hope that soon the Dalai Lama with his great wisdom will see that almost 20 years of suffering has brought a heavy toll on the people. And these great memes are hopes that Dorje Shugden people look forward too, in the very near future. Let there be peace and harmony.

  15. Uncle Eddie on Jan 25, 2016 at 11:43 am

    Buddhism is said to be universal, not confined to any country or particular nation. Buddhism is therefore unique, mainly owing to its tolerance, non-aggressiveness, rationality, practicality and universality. It makes the noblest of all unifying influencea, and the only lever that can uplift the World. His Holiness,The Dalai Lama, is universally regarded as one of the great spiritual friends of our twentieth cnetury. He is the product of an unbroken lineage extending back to the historical Buddha. As spiritual and political leader of the Tibetan people, he has consistently advocated polices of non-violence, even in the face of great aggression; an approach that in 1989 won him the coveted nobel Peace Prize. A brillant scholar, his words and experiences go far beyond the academic. His teachings as said, are well-rooted in a life, tried and tested, dedicated to peace, human rights, social changes and the total transformation of the human mind and heart. Most of his lectured-tours around the World has touched people’s hearts, transcending religious, national and political barriers by simple, profound and great-heartedness of his message – that of universal resposibility and great compassion! His wisdomised explainations are filled with utter clarity and good reasoning with compassion. As such, we humbly and sincerely beg His Holiness, The Dalai Lama to utilise his good office to restore back peace, harmony and unity amongst all Dorje Shugden practitioners and worshippers once again, and to bring the ban down. With the Dalai Lama’s atruistic compassion and help, coupled with his immensed wisdom, we are confident that whatever problems or troubles of any kind can be contained and solved easily. With deep heartfelt gratitude, I humbly thank you, your Holiness.

  16. Uncle Lai on Jan 25, 2016 at 8:10 am

    Buddhism teach us to respect all religion and not to criticize them because we don’t believe them. But what I don’t understand within Buddhist faith itself there is isolation of Dorje Shudgen practitioners who are barred and banned from attending schools, hospitals, restaurants and other activities including H H The Dalai Lama teachings. This sound ridiculous but is true and it has been going on for 19 years.

    I hope the Dalai Lama see the plea of the people and end the confusion of Buddhist belief and end the ban. For this I support H E the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s wish that the ban will come to an end soon.

  17. Sarah on Jan 24, 2016 at 7:25 pm

    The ban on Lord Dorje Shugden’s practice has caused a lot of suffering and confusion for many Shugden followers. I strongly support H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s wish that His Holiness will remove the ban very soon. I sincerely hope and pray that the suffering which has lasted 19 years will end very soon.

  18. freon on Jan 23, 2016 at 9:58 am

    These are a very good memes. Some how, it suit H.H Dalai Lama’s images on compassion. Wheres when this ban is on the way H.H Dalai Lama talk about the ban is totally opposite on the images he have- peace, compassion, understanding and logic. The ban, have not only destroyed the harmony of Buddhist society, bring confusion, bring chaos, bring hatred but also bring a very bad image on H.H Dalai Lama. Especially when Refugees in Tibet request for FREE Tibet, people will begin to look at how their own people, have been treated badly and become refugees in between refugees just because they practice the lineage Guru’s believed.

    Dorje Shugden practices, is not something new. Something created out of mind. But it have been practiced by the lineage gurus and also generation of Tibetan. How many people have their families relationship destroyed. How many people suffered the unknown fear of what is going to happening to them next. How many people being bullied severely in foreign land- not going to school, can’t even go to hospital – just because they practice the Lineage’s Gift- Dorje Shugden. Many of Dorje Shugden’s reincarnation have benefited many people. It is impossible that this beneficial High Lama whom are a Bodhichitta could be harmful now. The logic does not support that. May the ban be release soon. Om Benza Wiki Bittana Soha.

  19. Joy on Jan 23, 2016 at 12:40 am

    We need the discrimination, the prejudice, the bigotry and the segregation to end. The Dorje Shugden ban must come down for it is only just, fair, right, legal and a compassionate action from the leader who preaches compassion. So many have suffered for over 19 years… how many more years must this go on? If anything this ban has brought, it is the degeneration of Buddhism and humanity because no Buddhist should ever shun, condemn or hurt another being even if it was one’s enemy. I believe this was the teaching of Lord Buddha and all the saints of the many colourful religions of this planet. So how on earth is it in anyway correct for this kind of discrimination, segregation and division to amongst people, teachers and students, mothers and children, friends and brothers and sisters be allowed to continue? It is an outright breech on our human right freedom to practice freely what religion and faith we wish that does not break any law or cause any harm to others.

    How is it that it is okay for the Dalai Lama to say that respect, understand and dialogue is required for ISIS leader but not for Dorje Shugden representatives and people? http://www.wnd.com/2015/12/dalai-lama-calls-on-world-to-give-isis-respect/ Are we not human too? And these are people who His Holiness your very own people too. This I do not get, this is completely illogical and no matter how many excuses the Tibetan leadership comes up with, it all sounds pretty bad from the perspective of Buddhism, humanity, democracy and plain logic because it still does not justify the pain and suffering brought on to Shugden people all around the world.

    Thank you Rinpoche for these memes, it is what HH the Dalai Lama should be saying, it is what Buddhist should say, it is what’s right and it what the world needs now. May the ban and discrimination on Shugden people stop and peace and harmony restored like before.

  20. Wah Ying on Jan 22, 2016 at 5:53 pm

    Too much sufferings and pains caused by the ban to practice Dorje Shugden for the pass 16 years. It’s time to lift the ban, it’s time to get things back to years prior to 1996, where friends and families are together, your choice of faith is respected, we all can eat together, sit down and share with each others… We are respected as a human being, without seeing what practice we are practising; just as we should be respected without being judged by our skin color, cultural background, lineages and so on.

    The wish expressed by H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche is not something created to humiliate H.H. Dalai Lama or anyone. Because this is the wish of so many people around the world, from India, China, Nepal, Malaysia, Singapore to Tibet and more…to lift the Dorje Shugden ban, that brought, and still bringing segregation, persecution and discrimination to the Dorje Shugden practitioners. Furthermore, the pain and sufferings are not limited to Dorje Shugden practitioners, but to non-Dorje Shugden people as well. And, the wish is not something comes out from nowhere, the wish is in line with the Buddha’s teaching – treat all equally, having compassion and be acceptance to all, beyond their belief, color and background.

  21. Stella Cheang on Jan 22, 2016 at 5:06 pm

    These memes raised an obvious question of why world peace is a loop sided affair in Dalai Lama’s world and interpreted with absolute bias by HHDL’s followers. As the icon of Tibetan Buddhism, HHDL appeared to be oblivious to the pain and suffering from his own people due to HHDL’s own action and decision. I sincerely wish that HHDL will lift Shugden ban in the nearest future to stop the pain suffered by Shugden practitioners. In this way, the world peace agenda that HHDL is pushing can stand corrected as a hypocritical initiative to pull wool over people eyes. All the talks and the initiatives on world peace sound hollow when we see the Tibetan Buddhsim community is suffering from segregation & persecution due to difference in religion practice. Albeit a slight difference in the eyes of many.

    Something serious for haters to ponder.

    Thank You Rinpoche and everyone who created these memes with a message. I will help spread the message to others.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

    These memes are beautifully designed to highlight the importance of the ban to be lifted. Dorje Shugden practitioners have suffered so much the past nineteen years because of this ban! Buddhism preaches tolerance, compassion, peace and harmony so why create discrimination and sufferings for Dorje Shugden practitioners? The lifting of the ban would bring so much harmony and unity amongst dharma practitioners!

  23. Pastor Han Nee on Jan 22, 2016 at 12:27 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, and the dedicated team for all these beautiful and heartfelt memes.

    Nineteen years of persecution and discrimination of Shugden people must surely come to an end .The Dalai Lama, and all who are against Shugden practitioners, should recognize the need for the ban to be lifted for the sake of peace and unity and to end suffering. Recently, H.H. the Dalai Lama was quoted by WND.com (an independent American news network) as saying that “there has to be a dialogue” with ISIS people – the Sunni radical terror network that is bent on carrying out terrorist acts of bombing, beheading, etc of people all over the world.Why can’t H.H. Dalai Lama also agree to peaceful negotiations with Shugden people, to being about a peaceful solution to the controversy over Shugden practice?

    We ask Dalai Lama to please say those words that will bring an end to conflict and strife against Shugden practitioners, whose only ‘crime’ is to practice Shugden out of their own strong sense of commitment and conviction. May freedom of religion reign for all for the sake of peace and unity and to end all suffering of Shugden people. May the ban be lifted.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the many beautiful and creative memes to “intensify” our plea to HH to help end the ban.
    I have shared this out through social media to do my little bit to create this cause continuously to help bring an end to the ban.

    Humbly yours,

    Thank you Rinpoche for this article and for highlighting the importance of acceptance and non discrimination. Being a spiritual leader that is world renown, HH The Dalai Lama has a social responsibility to be consistent with what he stands for and promotes around the world. The Dalai Lama can’t be promoting world peace and harmony for all except for Dorje Shudgen practitioners.

    Why the exception? How does this fall in line with his world message of peace and holding dialogues to work out the differences and come to a compromise? Why does the Dalai Lama not hold a dialogue with Dorje Shugden representatives and come to a compromise? Why stay quiet knowing that many Dorje Shugden practitioners are ostracized and suffering as a result of his ban?

    The world already has too much conflicts due to different opinions and beliefs. We don’t need more. And we certainly do not need a spiritual leader to add on to the sufferings regardless of his justifications. Religious discrimination is wrong on all levels. Period

    Thank You Rinpoche for having all these heartfelt memes available for us on the blog. Dorje Shugden practitioners especially those who live in Tibet are suffering a lot, they are being discriminated and segregated by their own people.

    There are some people who like to put the blame on Dorje Shugden practise or practitioners just so that they can continue to live in denial. Number 1, it was not the practise that has created division amongst the people. Number 2, if the ban was not implemented, there wouldn’t have been discrimination and ostracism against Dorje Shugden practitioners. So when there’s no discrimination, there’s no division.

    Why is practising black magic allowed while propitiating Dorje Shugden(who’s a Buddha that comes from a pure lineage) isn’t? I do not see the logic behind this, why is ONLY Dorje Shugden practise excluded while other religions or faiths like bon or even black magic are allowed? I’m not saying this to blame His Holiness or anything, but I just think that we should respect each other since we are individuals who have different views/ perspectives.

    Then we have some people who call themselves His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s “followers” and supposedly are “practising” the Buddhadharma and yet acting like barbarians, wishing Dorje Shugden practitioners to go to hell?? What makes you a religious practitioner? You’re a humiliation to Buddhism and I’m sorry to say this but you’re only making people to lose respect for His Holiness. His Holiness the Dalai Lama sure didn’t preach you to hurl all sorts of vulgarities towards others?! His Holiness teaches compassion and kindness, we all respect and love Him even though we may not share the same religious views.

    Dear Your Holiness, I beg You to please consider this and ease the pain of Dorje Shugden practitioners, no one is at fault for believing what they believe in. Putting our faith in something/ someone we believe in is not a crime, please lift the ban and end the sufferings of the people.

  27. KB on Jan 21, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    We have created this memes because we want H.H. To give us some love too and let us practice our Buddha. We really hope this dream will com true, may all Dorje Shugden practice be equal with other religion in the world and may H.H. Live long ..

  28. Sock Wan on Jan 21, 2016 at 4:41 pm

    Why do we create all these memes? Because of injustice and too much sufferings. We are not into politics, we just want to practice spirituality.. One of the things we learn in spirituality is not to inflict pain onto others and to help others out of sufferings. We are Dorje Shugden pratictioners, we are very lucky that in Malaysia we have a very open-minded government who allows us to practice our belief. However for other Dorje Shugden practitioners in India especially, they are discriminated by their own ‘government’. They are not accepted in the monasteries, in the school, in the hospital and shops. We cannot bear to see them suffer, thus the ban must be lifted. Please share the memes to create awareness, hopefully these messages will reach His Holiness The Dalai Lama.

    Thank you for these memes which I am sure required a lot of work editing, conceptualizing, writing etc. from a dedicated team with a burning wish like Rinpoche that the ban against Dorje Shugden is lifted.

    It would bring much unity and harmony to Tibetan Buddhism which is very much needed. All practising Tibetan Buddhists should not be further segregated by discrimination, violence, hatred, anger, yidams, practices, protectors because we are here to spread the teachings of compassion,kindness, transformation, bodhichitta as taught and written in the kangyur by Buddha Shakyamuni and I don’t think in the sutric texts, did Lord Buddha encourage discrimination against others. So why is there so much discrimination and segregation today? It has to stop and the power lies in the hands of the Dalai Lama to unite us. Please lift the ban soon!

    Nowadays, cancer is very common word to many people yet not many people know about the spiritual practices which might heal the cancer patient and some are fully recovered. In Buddhism, we believe on karma which is part of cause to cancer or diseases. Some Cancer patient are very panic and pessimistic, this will not heal cancer patient but will make them worst.
    By doing spiritual practice and undergo medical treatment in the same time,it will purify our bad karma and this will also help the cancer patient to be optimistic and always in positive mind.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this informative write up.This really help many people to be optimistic when cancer attack them.

    In Buddhism, all people are encouraged to love all living beings including the animals. The Buddha teachings told us that is not right for us to take away the life of others. We cannot deny that animals also have fear and pain as do human beings. Therefore, it is wrong to take away their lives. Besides, we should more proactive to protect the animals whenever we can.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting topic which showed one way of protecting the birds to get hurt from the transparent windows.

    Sad ,,,very sad knowing the secrets of Ukraine’s shameful holocaust.
    My tears flows freely after looking at those horrible sad pictures even though it happen many years ago.Could not imagine how those who have witnessed that holocaust gone through.Just because of differences of religion and faith between them they have suffered, executed,tortured and so forth.French Catholic priest, Father Patrick Desbois,uncovered the secrets for all to see and understand of Ukraine’s holocaust’.Its a good for us and the rest of the world to know and told to younger generation.How Dorje Shugden practitioners are treated in Tibet and outside of Tibet was similar to this holocaust in Ukraine.Dorje Shugden practitioners due to the ban and discrimination against them but nothing compared to the innocent Jewish people.
    May all the conflicts will end soon so as all do live harmonious and peaceful .
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this touching article.

    For Monsanto, Portugal although the landscape is all around the big rocks but the people can still build around it with beautiful design. I think human are adaptable as long as they wish too live there.

    I personally prefer the Giethoorn Netherlands. So beautiful, clean environment and living condition.

    The long standing relationship between Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden is not without conflicts. The enmity started since the time of the 5th Dalai Lama, mainly because Dalai Lama’s attendants were jealous of the highly attained Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and felt assured that he will threatened the new position as the King of Tibet of Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was the last incarnation of Dorje Shugden, as he entered clear light as a result of being murdered by Dalai Lama’s attendants, he arose as Dorje Shugden. As a result of deep regret for what his attendants had done, the Dalai Lama built Trode Khangsar Chapel as an attribution to Dorje Shugden. It is the proof that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector. Even since the enthronement of Dorje Shugden in Trode Khangsar Chapel, it had borne witness to recognitions by the Qing Emperor and His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama. Thank you very much for this article. Thank you for this article, Rinpoche.

    It is fascinating to read about the story of Dalai Lama especially His Holiness’ 5th reincarnation. 1642 marked a significant year for the 5th Dalai Lama was installed as the king of Tibet and it changed history forever. 1649 is the year when the famous Potala palace was completed and it is still standing tall today. It is notable that the 5th Dalai Lama visited Beijing in the year 1652 at the beginning of the Qing dynasty. During the early years that the 5th Dalai Lama was in power, his attendants were jealous of the renowned Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and assassinated him in the year 1656. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as the Dharma Protector in the form of Dorje Shugden. Some years later, in 1662, Panchen Lama entered clear light.

    Birds is our feathery friends who co-exist in our environment that we pay so little attention to them. We often forget they have feelings like us and definitely suffer from pain, cold and hunger just like us. As we pay so little attention to them as our neighbors, our actions inevitably create causes for them to suffer. Even though birds spread their wings and fly high, our concrete jungle is a trap for them and they get suffer the hurt that we created. Hence, it is our responsibility to be more mindful and since we can reverse the harm done, we should at least find remedy to lessen the possibility for them to get hurt. Thank you very much Rinpoche for this article as a reminder for us to be mindful towards animals living in our environment.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche and team for the colorful and artistic memes giving us bite size teachings on the benefits of Dorje Shugden. It is easy for us to share with friends and the world too. The additional info shared by Rinpoche in the comments column on Trode Khangsar Chapel is an important message. The chapel is a significant building attributed to Dorje Shugden by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama, as the proof that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector. It is also a way His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama wanted to show the world that his earlier view that Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit had been mistaken. Even since the enthronement of Dorje Shugden in Trode Khangsar Chapel, it had borne witness to recognitions by the Qing Emperor and His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama. Thank you very much for this article.

    Dear friends around the world,

    This is a very good documentary in which you can learn about the only religion given to the world by UK and how it is growing.

    Remember, knowing more and being exposed to more examples of what others went through for their rights will help us to give parallel examples to bring the ban down.

    The Wiccans were not accepted and considered a cult but now recognized as established religions in the UK and USA. The same will happen for Dorje Shugden practitioners. We don’t have to convince everyone but we do need to press forward to make sure we have equal rights and no discrimination against us because of our chosen faith. TR

    This article has many wonderful advices to all who are in a relationship, those wanting to be in a relationship or already in a relationship. Human are a very complex species, they can jump and switch from being a nice person and a devil next.
    It is rather puzzling on why and what makes us to be like that, basically if we look into this further we may come to a conclusion that we inherited these characters from both of our parents. I would agree to a certain degree that we may have some traits in our system from them but most of it that molded us to be what we are today stems from very many angles.
    Educations, environments, media exposure coupled with the company that we associated and moved around with are the main players that mold us. This character that we outwardly displayed are the result of having unknowingly and unconsciously woven a multi-faceted and intricate web that trap many of us and however hard we tried to spring out of it we find difficulty in doing so and are always revolving around it. A similar analogy would be like being addicted to drugs. We are so engrossed to become what we want to be and show to the world but in the process lost our true self.
    I was a rogue during my growing up years, having no father to provide all the love, guidance and to inspire me to become a responsible adult my character was molded by society and the result was I became very arrogant and developed many other traits that my relatives, friends, associates, colleagues and girlfriends find it hard to accept.
    Through all the trial and tribulations of my life it was Buddhism during the latter part that changed me and I am very thankful that Buddhism was the anchor that grounded me and moved me to a whole new level and have me began a new chapter of my life.
    Be what you are and not what you are not.

    In China, the symbol of the RED packet has great meaning but has no meaning in America. The American tradition of eating turkey in November (Thanksgiving) has significance in America but no meaning in China. Likewise our worldly accomplishments have very short term meaning now in this life but have no meaning in the bardo. We have to think where we are going to? So to transfer meaning from one existence to another is meaningless. To work all one’s life for just some short term satisfaction in this life that cannot be transferred to our future is quite meaningless and a waste of our limited time here. Better to use this life to work for future lives. This can be transferred. Tsem Rinpoche

    All we are saying, is GIVE PEACE A CHANCE….

    It is amazing that there are people who are UNHAPPY about H.H. the Dalai Lama saying we can practice Dorje Shugden. If you come to my FB page you can see a few people genuinely not happy that Dalai Lama is slowly turning around and in denial. On twitter too. Why would these people want to keep up the hate? Why would these people want the hatred against a group of people because of their religion to continue? �� Why hate someone JUST BECAUSE THEY PRACTICE DORJE SHUGDEN and everything else about ithem is the same as every other human being.

    There are millions that hate Christianity and yet it should go on. There are millions that hate Hinduism and yet it should go on and this applies to all religions. I mean Dorje Shugden is just another religion some hate and some like just like every other religion so just leave it alone. Isn’t that logical?????? Embrace diversity and differences. They make life beautiful. Leave everyone alone and don’t need to even comment something negative. Religious practice is a personal choice and not the right of any leader to choose for us or dissuade us. Not the right of any other individual to choose for us or dissuade us. No one should be bashed for their religious choice. Respect all human beings.

    It’s amazing some people want to keep the discord, disharmony and segregation going between Shugden and Non-Shugden people. Some people are only happy when things are unhappy. Shouldn’t they be looking for things in what His Holiness the Dalai Lama says that will lead to peace, harmony and unity and encourage this?

    My FB page ( https://www.facebook.com/tsemtulku ) has people leaving comments of unhappiness about the announcement we can practice Dorje Shugden by H.H. the Dalai Lama and that the Dalai Lama said Dorje Shugden does not harm him. That is a big difference than before when he said we cannot practice. Because when we were in the monasteries the Dalai Lama told us directly we cannot practice or leave. This was over a decade ago. His Holiness the Dalai Lama is changing his stance and we are grateful and thank him very much. We respect and love His Holiness the Dalai Lama but we cannot give up our religious choice in Dorje Shugden. He has his way and we have our’s but we can all still be harmonious and look for ways to be harmonious. We live on one small tiny blue planet and we have to get along. Don’t be unhappy about things on the mend. The segregation and hatred and bias because of religion must stop. All religions discrimination by anyone to any religion must stop.

    Don’t we all want a settlement in this Dorje Shugden issue? I do. Many do. Don’t we all want peace? Can’t we give peace a chance? ☮ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yU0JuE1jTk

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.

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

Don\'t wait for the perfect group. Don\'t wait for the perfect person. Don\'t wait for the perfect situation. Don\'t expect yourself to be perfect. Don\'t even look for perfection at least in our realm as it does not exist or time will run out. Just get going and keep doing good. It\'s between you and yourself. Tsem Rinpoche

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

This is the road that leads to my house in the mountains. I have a small house and a lake nearby the house and I live there on vegan foods with my pets-Mumu loves running around the meadows. I have a large outdoor Vajra Yogini statue made of stone and we make offerings of juniper leaves burned to her daily as sang. I love living in the mountains away from the senseless repeating of actions in urban life. Urban life with its various pollutions do not connect us to who we are inside. I love this walking path to my retreat home where I will live for the rest of my life and on the way home, I pluck some flowers for my shrine to offer to the Buddha...thank you for allowing me to live here.

The amount of suffering, fear and pain they have to experience should be experienced by no one whether animal or human. It is heartbreaking to continuously see the sufferings animals endure for our \'pleasures\'. I do feel helpless, but helpless or not, we must create more awareness tirelessly. With awareness, their suffering can eventually be reduced. The ones who are slaughtered, it\'s too late. We can only shed tears but we have to still be concerned about future slaughter of animals and try to prevent. Helping and being kind to animals is not spiritual, strange or unnatural, but pure empathy of understanding their pain in that no sentient beings would want to suffer. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dog Abandoned - Why Don't You Love Me Anymore?
    Dear friends around the world, I have come across so many stories of suffering, pain and abandonment but sometimes one stands out stronger than the rest. What happened to this little boy doggie is heartbreaking. I am re-posting here to create awareness and to bring attention to the heroes that help animals and create awareness to their suffering. The purpose of creating awareness is to let people know how much suffering animals go through and to not contribute towards this. To help lessen the suffering. Giving pain to any animal never brings good luck or happiness to anyone. Never harm animals and never eat them. Tsem Rinpoche Article link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/why-dont-you-love-me-anymore.html *********************************** Dear mom and dad. They found me inside the dumpster you toss me in around 8 in the night. I was crying for u begging for u to come take me back. What have I done wrong. I feel pain all over my body. My joints ached, the hole in my buttocks hurt, I cannot see my behind. I try to get up but I can’t. I cry and cry until a man who was dumping his garbage heard me. He got the shock of his life finding me in the pile of rubbish. It was wet and smelly here. The worms are eating me inside out. Again I keep thinking, what have I done wrong. The vet said my condition is pretty bad. My old body won’t be able to handle it for long. I was full of lice, fleas and ticks. I had blood parasite too. My white blood count is too high. I am an old boy, in pain and suffering. After lengthy tests, they finally decide to let me go. I understand. I am not angry. I am just sad you are not with me. They gave me a nice meal, my last supper. It reminds me of you when I was young. You used to love me and handfed me when I was a baby. People cry around me. They held my hand as I closed my eyes. And then I finally let go and my heart beat the last. Dear mom and dad. I am now in heaven. For whatever I did wrong to you, I hope you won’t do to another dog what you did to me. I will always love you. Until we meet again. Remarks: Many thanks to Century Animal Medical Centre (Putatan) Dr Adit and Frankie for your help, for the love to animals you waited for us to help him even you were was closing. Thank you again for your compassion towards the less fortunate animals and rest in peace doggy.

    tsering dolker asked: Chaktsal Rinpochee khen it is said that buddhism believes in gender equality then why aren't we allowed to enter in certain temples?
    pastor answered: Dear Tsering Dolker, Thank you for your question. You have asked a very good question. The Buddhas are enlightened beings therefore they have equanimity for all sentient beings including men and women. However, as you have said, some temples do not allow women to enter. This is most likely due to the fact that one or more of the deities that have shrines in the temple are not enlightened beings. For example there may be a temple to a certain god. This god could have a consort such as a goddess or unenlightened dakini. Since unenlightened beings are still subject to emotions, this consort may become jealous or angry at seeing another women in the temple, therefore cause the woman harm. For this reason, women may not be allowed to enter the temple. On the other hand there are some people who believe that during a woman’s monthly cycle, she become ritually ‘unclean’ due to her bodily processes. At this time women may not be allowed to enter certain temples as they are ‘unclean’. There are others that believe that during a woman’s monthly cycle, since there are major changes happening in the body, this effects the energy or ‘winds’ in their bodies. At this point they are susceptible to outside energies, and being inside a temple where there is a powerful being, this may have a negative effect on them. This is why they are sometimes not allowed inside. However the examples I have given above are for temples in which there are unenlightened deities. Most Tibetan Buddhist temples will not include these unenlightened deities such as these. For example in Kechara, since we pray to the enlightened Buddhas, women can enter all our temples. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Harold Musetescu asked: What can you tell be about "Green Vajrapani"? Thank you
    pastor answered: Dear Harold Musetescu, Thank you for your question. There are many forms of Vajrapani. Could you provide me with more information as to the specific form of Vajrapani that you would like to know about? Personally, I have not come across a form of Green Vajrapani in my personal practice, therefore I cannot give you any more information. If you can provide me with the specific name of the deity you would like to know more about I may be able to find out. However, I do know of a green form of Vajrapani, who belongs to the mandala of the Kalachakra deity. In this form, Vajrapani is green, with three faces. These are green, red and white. He has six hands. In his right hands he holds a Vajra, curved flaying knife and axe. While in his left hands he holds a bell, a skull and head of Brahma. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    pastor answered: Dear Lunezia, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately I am not familiar with the works of Rudolf Steiner. Perhaps you could ask the question again, including the names of his works. Alternatively, you could summarise them here and I can give a Tibetan Buddhist view on them. Thank you.
