They were not wrong

Dear fellow friends,

Our team has compiled 205 teachers, masters, yogis, geshes, mahasiddhas, lineage holders of various schools of Buddhism that practiced or was affiliated closely to Dorje Shugden. We have taken interviews and information from over 100 people including high lamas, abbots, abbot emeriti, former monks, senior monks, students of illustrious masters and attendants of masters in Gaden, Sera and Drepung Monasteries. They have attested that the 205 masters listed here are practicing, have been practicing, were practicing or are closely associated with groups that practice Dorje Shugden. Some may have ‘given’ up their practice due to political pressure from the Tibetan leadership. In Tibetan society, you don’t want to be seen as going against the leadership or there will be negative repercussions as it’s not a democratic society. But the majority have kept up their practice in secret to avoid stigma like many other cases of religious persecution in world history. We have met senior monks who have been practicing Dorje Shugden for over 70 years and have no intention of giving up their practice of this protector.

Some of the masters we have listed, such as the current Sakya Trizin, understand the practice of Dorje Shugden has been in their Sakya lineage for over 400 years. It is said by monks of Buxa that the current Sakya Trizin made offerings to Dorje Shugden prior to the ban in 1996. In fact some of the great previous Sakya Throne-holders in the past encouraged the practice of Dorje Shugden we can see from their writings. There are quite a few Sakya monasteries in Tibet that have been propitiating Dorje Shugden for centuries and remain doing so till present times. This disproves Dorje Shugden only helps Gelugs, which is preposterous. There are even masters who have practiced Dorje Shugden but have gone ‘underground’ with their practice to avoid the scorn of the Tibetan leadership. Some of the lamas we have here have ‘given up’ Dorje Shugden after a lifetime of propitiating him, but they are listed here because they have spent more years in the practice of Dorje Shugden than not practicing. So this list includes a few who have practiced but in the current political times, have ‘given up’ the practice. Tens of thousands in the Gelug monasteries such as Drepung, Sera, Gaden, Tashi Lhunpo, etc. practiced Dorje Shugden. Many masters listed here would also have thousands of students, both lay and ordained, in Tibet and all over the world. So you can see Dorje Shugden practice was not a minor or small practice. As long as these masters have practiced Dorje Shugden at any point of their lives, they are included in this collection.

How can so many masters who are learned, erudite in debates, masters of philosophy, even some very highly attained in their meditations, be mistaken in their practice of Dorje Shugden? Could it be that Dorje Shugden is negative and tricked every single one of these masters for 400 years? If Dorje Shugden can fool so many masters of this calibre, then it does not say much for these masters, does it? Then we can’t rely on their teachings either. Remember, the masters listed here are just a small fraction of well-known lamas who practice Dorje Shugden as there are hundreds more. There are so many masters in this list with advanced meditation skills who would have surely seen the ‘evil’ nature of Dorje Shugden, yet they practiced Dorje Shugden and even encouraged their students to follow suit. Having had positive meditational experiences with Dorje Shugden, some even wrote prayers, praises and commentaries to Dorje Shugden. With deepest respects to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, but how he can be the only one right and all these masters wrong about the practice of Dorje Shugden? That is not logical. If you gain a certain ability or level in meditation, then whoever you are, you will be endowed with the same psychic abilities to discern which being is negative or positive. So how can so many masters who can have the same attainments as the Dalai Lama be fooled by this one tricky Dorje Shugden for 400 years? The Dalai Lama is high in rank as he is the leader of Tibet, but in terms of spiritual meditation, there are other masters just as attained and equal to the Dalai Lama. Attainments, meditational abilities and psychic powers are not confined to rank or to the status of a person. We are going on the basis that the Dalai Lama is highly attained in his meditations.

So the purpose of this post is to explain that there are so many great realized masters who claim that Dorje Shugden is Manjushri and extremely beneficial which he is and we should trust these masters as their numbers are many. How can so many masters be wrong about Dorje Shugden? They couldn’t be wrong as they are very learned and highly attained in their meditations. They taught that Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri who can help any individual regardless of your background. Manjushri has no bias or prejudices. Dorje Shugden is Manjushri and an extremely beneficial practice. When you rely on Dorje Shugden, over time, you will see the beneficial influence he has in your life as a close friend, mentor and protector who is always ready to help you. And many great masters for 400 years have attested to this being true.

Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche
on guru devotion

Or view the video on the server at:
http://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/DenmaGonsaRinpocheGuruDevotion.mp4

Translation:

At this time, we see guru devotion in the great monasteries, it is like a vessel leaking. At this time, in the four great monasteries, I see the first [in guru devotion] is Tashi Lhunpo. I am not flattering. The better one is Tashi Lhunpo monks.

Before, Sera has a lot of monks joining…

(video breaks abruptly)

…What I am teaching you today, this is correct or not correct, you must examine. If it is correct, you must practice. If it is not correct, then you can discard it. That is okay.

In brief, you all must carefully examine Lama Tsongkhapa’s Dharma. Apart from that, at this time, Lama Tsongkhapa’s Dharma is like a butter lamp in the strong wind. It has very nearly extinguished, like that. Now you all must carefully examine Lama Tsongkhapa’s Dharma, must carefully examine Lama Tsongkhapa’s Dharma. Do you understand?

If you practise the Protector [referring to Dorje Shugden], you do the practice. If you don’t practise, you don’t do the practice. This is no problem. If you practise, say it very clearly – “I do the practice.” If you don’t practice, say it very clearly – “I don’t do the practice.” Don’t be two-faced.

Must have unity and solidarity. Do you understand? Then good. Then it will be useful that we are monks and stay in the big monasteries. [meaning if they are monks but have no unity, it will not be useful]

At night, all our virtues we must dedicate to enlightenment and the growth of Buddha Dharma, and all the holy masters’ long life, and make aspirational prayers for the growth of Lama Tsongkhapa’s combined sutric and tantric Dharma and for it to remain for a long time. Do you understand?

And if you are a Dorje Shugden practitioner, make aspirational prayers for Dorje Shugden’s blessings to spread all around the world. If you are not a Dorje Shugden practitioner, make aspirational prayers for all protectors’ blessings to be timely and for the Buddha Dharma to grow.

Then good. Then all of you work towards mental unity and pure vows. Please practise well. That’s all, thank you. Finish.

    How can a nun curse someone they do not even know and wish the person to die quickly and be born in hell? What kind of nun is this? Shocking! What more she’s cursing a Buddhist teacher and a monk?! Is this the face of Bhutanese Buddhist?

    This is so shameful for her as a nun, her teacher, her monastery, her country and her King. A sangha should not behave in such a manner. A Sangha should carry enlightened Buddha’s teachings of compassion and wisdom to benefit all sentient beings.

    A Sangha is not supposed to promote hatred and certainly should not be cursing or wishing another person to die. That wish itself is already breaking one of the vows.
    A Sangha is one of the 3 Jewels, an object of refuge. They should not behave like an uncivilized person with so much hate. This is how bad the Tibetan Leadership has spread their lies and hate about Dorje Shugden and Shugden Buddhist practitioners.

    Wow….great work by the writer’s team for compiling all information of the hundred great lamas and many more who has practised Dorje Shugden. Due to political pressure from the Tibetan leadership some of them are forced to give up but many still practiced as for centuries. How could they be wrong then as they are very highly attained masters and they have claimed that Dorje Shugden is beneficial and does not harm them . Dorje Shugden who have been propitiated by many high lamas for more than 400 years. If Dorje Shugden is a evil spirit as claimed by some, how can so many great lamas be tricked and that means all along all those highly attained are wrong. They are not wrong ,they are right in the first place. The CTA has instituted the ban against Dorje Shugden causing disharmony and disunity among the Tibetans communities. The ban of Dorje Shugden is illogical and may the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners be lifted soon.
    Thanks again with folded hands Rinpoche and teams for all the work and effort all of you have done.

    • CindyH on Jun 12, 2018 at 6:09 pm

      Agree that Dorje Shugden ban by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) is detrimental to the peace and unity of Tibetans.

      It is also equally absurd that the Central Tibetan Administration has been able to get away from being accountable for their failures to deliver any of the promises to Tibetans by blaming a deity for so long and to date, they are still getting away with it.

      In short;
      • From a secular view, no self-respecting democratic governing body would use a Buddhist enlightened deity as a scapegoat to cover-up their screw-ups and enforce an illogical religious ban that in contravention of their own constitution and also without giving any substantial or satisfactory justifications.

      • From a spiritual perspective, leaving aside the illogical claims of Dorje Shugden being an evil spirit etc where each such unjustifiable allegations by the CTA can be logically debunked by Dorje Shugden practitioners, why only blame Dorje Shugden for the loss of Tibet? After all, if one is to subscribe this line of thinking then one is in effect saying that;
      (i) Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, who is a none other than Chenrezig is inferior to an evil spirit. And if you say Dalai Lama is not inferior, then why didn’t Chenrezig protect Tibet?
      (ii) The primary state protector of Tibet Nechung or Dorje Drakden did not protect Tibet from destruction as he sworn to Guru Rinpoche to do. Why not blame Nechung too? Why pick on Dorje Shugden?

      Another problematic issue by subscribing to CTA’s unsubstantiated allegations against Dorje Shugden is that there are also so many living Buddhas, high lamas, Rinpoches, tulkus and other Dharma Protectors n the pantheon of Tibetan Buddhism. Why didn’t they stop the Chinese invasion? Or are you going to say they are all unable to due to a supposedly evil spirit Dorje Shugden? Again, why (illogically) only blame Shugden?

      The irony of it all is that Dorje Shugden was the one who warned the Tibetans about the impending invasion from 1957 onwards and when push comes to shove, Dorje Shugden was the one who pulled through and helped the Dalai Lama escape http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-truth-about-who-saved-the-14th-dalai-lama.html

  3. Sharon Ong on Jun 12, 2018 at 2:31 am

    Thank you very much for sharing this list. This reaffirms my faith that Dorje Shugden is a highly beneficial practice that is not limited to only the Gelug tradition but is suitable for anyone.

    Within the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon, it is a known fact that many high Lamas have the ability to subdue spirits. So IF Dorje Shugden is indeed a demonic spirit as claimed by some, any of these lamas list just in this post alone would have been able to subdue this evil spirit. The fact that no Lama, even those who do not practise Dorje Shugden, have not come forward to subdue it would mean that Dorje Shugden is not an evil spirit as claimed. It is impossible that if Dorje Shugden is an evil demon, no compassionate Lama would even attempt to subdue it to prevent it from harming people.

  4. Lin Mun on Jun 11, 2018 at 8:42 pm

    The allegation that CTA make on Dorje Shugden and saying the practise is evil and will harm HH Dalai Lama doesn’t make sense at all. Dorje Shugden is an enlightened dharma protector who have been propitiated by many high lamas for more than 400 years. How can all these high lamas do not know if Dorje Shugden is an evil. The allegation created by CTA is just to create confusion and propagated for their own agenda. It is disheartening as the ban has segregated the Tibetans and created many unnecessary suffering towards Dorje Shugden practitioners. We hope HH Dalai Lama will resolve this matter to avoid further suffering and discrimination against the practitioners.

    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,

    The Dorje Shugden ban is now 20years old. During this period, Dorje Shugden has been maligned and demonized by a series of smear campaigns designed to destroy the practice and wipe it from the registry of Tibetan Buddhism. But sooner or later whatever is baseless will begin to collapse and increasingly we see signs of that. This comment by ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ is yet another indication that despite all efforts, the anti-Shugden offensive has failed. . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

    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.

    The evidence in this instance is overwhelming – the vast majority of Gelug lamas practised Dorje Shugden, in comparison to the small handful who did not or who gave up the practice. So for people to claim that Dorje Shugden is a minor deity is erroneous and for anyone to CONTINUE insisting that he is a minor practice after they have been presented with such overwhelming evidence, clearly has a hidden agenda. Why else would anyone continue to push an illogical stance, when it has been shown time and time again (and with so much evidence) that their views are based on falsehoods?

    The question that has to be asked is, why did so many lamas give up the practice? Is it because after hundreds of years of practice, so many people SPONTANEOUSLY AND SIMULTANEOUSLY decided that the practice is negative? Or is it more likely that one very influential person made the decision for everybody, without so much as consulting them?

    You don’t even need to be Buddhist or well-versed in Buddhist studies to know which situation / explanation is more probable!

  10. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 6, 2016 at 12:08 am

    99% of the Gelug tradition practiced Dorje Shugden before the ban that was laid down by the Dalai Lama. All it is no surprise that all the lamas listed are those who kept to Dorje Shugden practice and brought it to many sentient beings.

    May many sentient beings once again be able to practice Dorje Shudgen without fear or worry.

  11. Grace Leong on Jun 1, 2016 at 1:04 pm

    What makes me really sad is that people JUDGE the Dorje Shugden Lamas without even actually knowing them on a personal level. The anti DS people have probably no interaction with the DS Lamas , never attended their teachings, never met the Lamas in person, never studied on their works and achievements, never talked or been in contact in any way or form. YET THEY CRITICISE, THEY USE ABUSIVE LANGUAGE, THEY SPAM THEIR TEACHINGS, THEY RALLY OTHERS TO DO THE SAME ETC ETC. Is this your innate attitude ? Is that what you always do to others too, just to gain some attention or just to vent your personal frustration on others ? Or are you paid to do this ? It is a really strange behaviour !!!!
    One has no right to judge, no right to criticise or discriminate another over their spiritual beliefs !! Or if you have an interest whatsoever, then study your facts, research on the DS Lama”s works, talk to their students, participate in their activities, attend teachings by DS Lamas, then maybe you have a basis to discuss/debate the subject matter.
    With all due respect , even if the Dalai Lama bans this practice, there ought to be a
    1) a valid reason
    2) an avenue/ respected platform for negotiation and discussion
    3) freedom to practice without fear
    4) fair treatment

    Anti -DS people , please stop barking up the wrong tree !! Practice equanimity and compassion for the benefit of all beings ! OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA !!

    Todd, it is very disrespectful for you to come here to criticize, belittle and says unfounded things about His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. Although this is a public domain but still it belongs to Tsem Rinpoche. You are coming here to his house and start say nasty things,make snide remarks, belittling him etc..
    How about looking at a different scenario that I go to your house and says all those nasty things about you, complain, criticize, finger pointing and starts running you down, you wouldn’t like it, would you? Similarly since you are here please accord some courtesy to the host of this domain.
    The truth of the matter is that makes you think you are more qualified to comment against those erudite present and past masters of Tibetan Buddhism? It is for us to believe and for you to find out but looking at your comments needless to mention here your knowledge is pretty shallow as compared to these masters.
    I would urge you if you are keen to learn about the truth is to spend more years doing intensive research in Tibet or somewhere else that could provide you with respectable and in depth knowledge otherwise you are not making any sense in your remarks here.
    Those people who responded to your inquisitiveness here on who, where and how they practice Dorje Shudgen is pretty polite and very accommodating. In other domains you would have been blocked as your intention is not noble.

    • Su Ming on Jun 1, 2016 at 12:46 pm

      Dear Sonny Tan,

      Thank you for your posting above. As a student of Tsem Rinpoche, it is very heartwarming when we see comments like yours above. Todd and many others has been coming into our lama’s blog & also other form of social media bombarding the pages with a lot of irrelevant comment and some will just screamed vulgarity. We are all here to share and learn. Not to be rude and be disrespectful.

      Thank you once again

  13. Pavara Lam on May 20, 2016 at 10:24 pm

    If i get to see the Dalai Lama personally, the first thing i would ask is: How could you prove that Dorje Shugden was wrong? Dorje Shugden is the one who saved your skin when he gave you precise plans to escape from Tibet, had it not been for Dorje Shugden you [Dalai Lama] wouldn’t be here and alive today in this world. It was Nechung (An unenlightened spirit who was subdued by Guru Rinpoche and bound to oaths to protect the Dharma) who gave the 13th Dalai Lama the wrong medication which killed him and it definitely wasn’t Nechung who told the Dalai Lama to leave Tibet immediately.
    The Dalai Lama said that people who practice Dorje Shugden are spirit worshipers, but the real person who is worshiping spirits are the CTA and the Dalai Lama, they are the ones who always consult Nechung( and several other unenlightened spirits) for advice.

    Dorje Shugden has proven himself as an enlightened Dharma protector and if he is wrong that means everyone including the Dalai Lama is wrong(the Dalai Lamas teachers were great masters who worshiped Dorje Shugden).

    Since people claim that Dorje Shugden is was a evil spirit that was killed in a fire puja, since they proclaim that he was killed, who is the one going in to the oracles in the great monasteries? Which evil spirit can enter a oracle inside a holy monastery filled with many high lamas? It is said that a highly skilled Lama can tell between a evil spirit and a protector and what’s more the oracles body and mind is kept pure by vows and daily sadhanas to ensure that nothing unclean can enter his body.

  14. Todd Rush Chambers on Mar 31, 2016 at 11:10 pm

    Linda and Tenzin Tsephel, Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro Rinpoche of Dzongsar(“…the most outstanding Tibetan master of the twentieth century”) was a Root Guru of HH the Sakya Trizin. If you criticize these two great masters, that is one thing.

    But in your video, you and your Guru DISHONESTLY include the name of HH the Sakya Trizin among the names of Shugden practitioners, and you EXTREMELY DISHONESTLY imply that HH the 13th and HH the 14th Dalai Lamas are the ONLY high Lamas who oppose the practice, when I have clearly proven, with the video link, that HH the Sakya Trizin (along with ALL high Nyingma Rinpoches) opposes the practice.

    Chokyi Lodro Rinpoche DID hold Gelugpa teachings and taught Gelugpa disciples, the foremost of whom was Kyili Kyabgon Rinpoche.

    http://www.rangjung.com/authors/Dzongsar_Khyentse_Chokyi_Lodro.htm
    http://www.rigpawiki.org/index.php?title=Jamyang_Khyentse_Ch%C3%B6kyi_Lodr%C3%B6#Birth_and_Early_Life

    Linda, I started practicing Buddhism in 1982. This issue became a personal concern for me after a disruptive mob of Shugden worshipers came uninvited to where I live, for the purpose of disturbing the visit of HH the Dalai Lama. They even sent someone into the Alabama Theater to create more disturbances.

    The number of Rinpoches who either oppose Shugden worship, or who at least avoid the practice, has vastly outnumbered the Shugden worshipers throughout history, especially if you are honest enough to mention all the Nyingma, Kagyu, and Sakya Masters who avoid the practice.

    • Linda on Mar 31, 2016 at 11:51 pm

      Todd,

      Tsem Rinpoche is not my guru, nor have I ever met him and I do not even live in the country his centre is at. I admire Tsem Tulku Rinpoche because when I visited Gaden Monastery in South India with a group back in 1994, I met a few high lamas, abbots and ex-abbots who had glowing things to say about Tsem Rinpoche. They mentioned among many things his guru devotion is very strong and his English is a plus. I have followed Tsem Rinpoche’s blog and many of my friends do also and they have benefited tremendously. These very high lamas I met all practice Shugden.

      Secondly, Chokyi Lodro is great or not great is perspective. Any lama in the Tibetan tradition have detractors. It is subjective. He is not known in the Gelug world at all and he does not teach any Gelug teachings to anyone at all.

      Tsem Rinpoche does not attend any protests against Dalai Lama and none of his works are vulgar, rude or demeaning towards the Dalai Lama in his blog posts. If he was, I will not agree. He has gently followed his practice as given to him by his teacher. Even back when I visited Gaden I attended a puja to Dorje Shugden in the Dorje Shugden Tenkhang attended by over 600 monks and our group was the sponsor of food, bread and tea. They conduct this puja monthly. So many high lamas, Geshes and senior monks attended and I was able to offer them a khata each. A great honor. Tsem Rinpoche has not done anything wrong. He does not agree with Dalai Lama’s ban on Shugden and neither do I. The ban is wrong. For this you hound him? I don’t care what and who you say which lama likes or don’t like Shugden. You don’t live in a monastery, you are not connected to every dharma centre, lineage or master. Whatever you say is your own speculation. Nothing is believed. No one believes you.

      There is no reason for you to hound Tsem Rinpoche or disturb him. You have no dharma blog site, you don’t have a centre, students or anything. You just sit at home and type on a computer? Why should you be believed? You do nothing. If you don’t like what Tsem Rinpoche says, who invited you to his blog here? Who invited you to his FB/twitter page? Nobody. So you don’t like, then don’t bother to visit. What do you win to argue and argue and debate. You don’t need to hound Tsem Rinpoche and his thousands of blog followers. Remember this blog has peaked over 7 million views since it’s inception. What Tsem Rinpoche is sharing is reaching thousands and there is nothing you or anyone can do. Tsem Rinpoche has done nothing to you. Has not hurt your family, friends nor even has any association with you. You do not need to tell him what to do or act or practice. MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. Tsem Rinpoche has done nothing to you so get your own life and go spend your time somewhere else. Tsem Rinpoche is honest or not is just your opinion. You don’t find him honest, then go somewhere else. Find another fixation to hassle. Get a hobby, go to the gym, go for walks, go feed the homeless, study something or take a course, fight global warming, save some animal species, cook in shelters, join salvation army, or whatever. There is so much a person can do to change or help the world and your community. So go do it and stop harassing Tsem Rinpoche. You look ridiculous and you look obsessed.

      • Todd Rush Chambers on Apr 1, 2016 at 12:51 am

        Linda, I have evidence that Tsem Tulku encouraged the disturbances against HH the Dalai Lama.

        TsemTulkuLenFoley1

        • Linda on Apr 1, 2016 at 2:05 am

          Todd,

          This is your evidence? You gotta be kidding?? How flimsy is that. Geshe Kelsang’s group are against the illegal ban against their faith. They protested and not Tsem Rinpoche and students. Tsem Rinpoche does not agree with the ban. So they have a common bond. So what? Their bond was brought about due to a ban against their faith. The end. Tsem Rinpoche ‘liked’ their efforts and left a comment, but did not attend the protests neither did his students and you have this whole conspiracy theory against Tsem Rinpoche? Drop it already man.

          Hundreds of thousands of people protest against the establishment, bosses, businesses, leaders, Vatican, pope, whatever daily around the world. So what? Dalai Lama is alive and well and no harm came to him due to the protests. If he is going to make policies that hurt people or be on the world stage then he has to be ready for protests and people speaking up. That is the price of fame.

          But the point is:

          Tsem Rinpoche did NOTHING to you. Nothing to your family. Nothing to your friends. Nothing to you at all. What Tsem Rinpoche wants to speak up about is his prerogative. It’s his life and his freedom. You Todd Chambers have nothing to do with this at all. You don’t have to be involved in Tsem Rinpoche’s life, times, views, works and activities. It has NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU. He does not need your approval. You don’t need his approval. You go and live your life and let him live his. You like Dharma, go practice, and more power to you sir! But Tsem Rinpoche did NOTHING TO YOU. You don’t have to police anyone. Go live your life free of conspiracy, anger and pain and all that. The end.

          relax

          • Todd Rush Chambers on Apr 1, 2016 at 4:03 am

            Linda, it is true that I cannot stop Tsem Tulku from spreading falsehoods on YouTube, Twitter, or FaceBook, but I have the freedom to mention that fact, and call attention to it.

          • Linda on Apr 1, 2016 at 4:23 am

            Todd,

            You have the freedom to call attention to what you like but remember:

            1. You have no claims against Tsem Rinpoche to be believed. You have done nothing to be believed but keep repeating the same old thing, stalking and spamming. Act your age.

            2. Tsem Rinpoche has done you no harm. So you are seen as stalking and spamming and perhaps mentally unwell. You are fixated on him like some people out there are fixated on a celebrity or some person they have never met. You should look deeper into yourself and see the hurt and pain you have from childhood or your earlier years that make you manifest this hurt that needs healing in stalking, blaming and attacking others you have never met.

            3. The more you do this, the more it consumes you and destroys you. You are so fixated and obsessed. You should really go and get help. Go get professional help.

            4. The untruths you perceive Tsem Rinpoche is spreading is your truth and you are seen as deluded. Everyone has their views. You cannot stop him as you said and you want to bring attention to it? What a waste of time. Throwing a raw egg at a mountain and hoping the mountain will crumble.

            5. You have no right to interfere in the life, works and beliefs of Tsem Rinpoche. Tsem Rinpoche believes in Shugden and that is his right and constitutionally protected right-RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. You have no right to keep telling Tsem Rinpoche his belief in Shugden is wrong. This is his religion and spiritual choice. Better you just respect other people’s religion and keep quiet. You make yourself look really fanatical.

            You sound like a bible thumping fanatic from the deep South condemning gays, blacks and anyone you don’t like. Wrong!

            Give it a rest. Do yourself a favor and leave people to their beliefs, religions and way of life. It is none of your business what others choose. NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

            Really, go get some counseling and help. You need it. You must suffer plenty and daily. Poor man.

        • Joy on Apr 4, 2016 at 4:24 am

          How can the above be considered evidence when it is just someone rejoicing for another person’s hard work for a good cause to remove an ILLEGAL ban on people’s religion, Dorje Shugden. Believe it or not, Dorje Shugden people are humans with rights too, I’m a human and I have the right to practice whatever I choose to living in a democratic country. I do not see any evidence in thisyour claims because it is all just based on ASSUMPTIONS and nothing more.

          Also why do you Mr. Todd like to stalk and harass my Lama whom you have never met or know and keep trying to put Him and us all down with your beliefs and your concepts? Why is it that you can accept other people of different faith but choose to harass us Shugden practitioners? Your an eye for an eye attitude does says a lot about your practice and puts His Holiness to shame, if you claim He is your Guru. Because…didn’t His Holiness the Dalai Lama teach about compassion, patience, religious tolerance, forgiveness too? How come those practices are being ignored but harassing, insinuating, condemning, discriminating and accusing others for practising their faith, in this case it is Dorje Shugden is okay? Did H.H. asked you to do this?

          With this kind of attitude, it makes me question if His Holiness is inciting hatred in His teachings and being hypocritical because whatever the students and followers do, act and behave is a direct representation of their leader, head, teacher. So the more Mr. Todd comes here to harass us with his judgemental, critical opinion and views on what’s right and wrong and basically not giving us peace, the more he proves to the world that His Holiness Dalai Lama people are NOT NICE people. But we forgive you…

        • Linda on Apr 2, 2016 at 1:05 am

          Todd,

          Why do you have to prove anything? Who are you? What have you accomplished? Who authorized you the divine mandate to police, judge and stalk monks? Get off your high horse because you are not better than anyone else. I told you already-GO GET MEDICAL HELP. Your too old for this. Mature up and get help.

          You do stalk Tsem Rinpoche as @lhazang on twitter.

          Tsem Rinpoche does not tag you but you tagged him, stalked him and directed demeaning tweets to him till you were blocked. When people ask you not to tag them, harass them, stalk them and send them degrading messages and you still do so. Why? Why are you so creepy in that way? What have you become? Have you always been this way? What kind of Buddhist are you? Does the Dalai Lama teach you to harass, stalk and hammer people on the internet? Are you representing Dalai Lama or yourself? Everything you write, say and post is recorded-JUST REMEMBER THAT.

          Isn’t this you in the picture I attached? The stalker. I think this blog site should block your comments. They are even nice enough to not moderate and let the comments through. YOU SHOULD BE BLOCKED because you really need help. Go get help.

          Bye Todd, GO GET HELP FAST. You have a huge inferiority complex and you get your ‘thrills’ from stalking people you’ve never met. Go get help. Why else do you stalk people?

          Dear Admin,

          This is a stalker by the name of Todd Rush Chambers. I know you don’t moderate comments most likely but see what I have researched on twitter. I’m an avid follower of Tsem Rinpoche online and I disagree with all the harassment this Todd Rush Chambers does. Kechara should keep a record of all this. You might need it later on. Beware of this and I am not telling you to ban him but I would if this was my site. Kechara and Tsem Rinpoche are doing A GREAT JOB! KEEP IT UP!

            Oh, so it’s cool if hundreds of Shugden agitators come to Birmingham, Alabama to disturb our visit with HH the Dalai Lama, but if I post some comments on Twitter and some blog, that makes me a stalker??

      To Your Eminence Tsem Rinpoche,

      It was so beautiful to see this post and your blog is magnificent. It reaches thousands of people and I must thank you for all the work and effort you put into your blog. You also have a centre and many students. You really spend all of your time for others via the dharma. You are a dharma hero, great monk and teacher.

      I’ve shown your site to a friend in Taiwan and he is a student of His Holiness the late Great all Omniscient 10th Panchen Rinpoche. My friend is much older now but in the past has visited Panchen Rinpoche’s Tashilunpo Monastery many times for teachings. He has visited the chapel of Dorje Shugden which is huge in Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery. My friend is fluent in Tibetan reading and spoken and has joined in their Dorje Shugden pujas also on many occasions. He said many of his obstacles were removed due to the Dorje Shugden puja and even created the causes for him to save his mother’s life. Indeed Panchen Rinpoche was a great man, master and so courageous as he stood for Tibetan culture, religion and nationality against the Chinese cultural revolution on many occasions and was jailed, tortured and beaten for it also. Yet Panchen Rinpoche’s spiritual commitments never waned. He was a great practitioner of Kalacakra and Dorje Shugden my friend said. Panchen Rinpoche had pujas done for Dorje Shugden in short form daily and in longer form a few times a month in his monastery. Even the great 9th Panchen Lama practiced Dorje Shugden also.

      My friend in Taiwan is in awe of your blogsite and asked me to leave a message here and he is not confident in written English. He thanks you for your various posts on Panchen Rinpoche as it brought tears to his eyes.

      Thank you for all you do. Keep it up and it does not have one iota of meaning for whatever the detractors who are against you have to say or comment. All great men have detractors. You are in my prayers and I am a avid follower of your blog. Thank you for all you do.

      Bob

    HH Rizong Rinpoche does NOT do this practice. Neither does H.E. Gelek Rinpoche. Also, HH the Sakya Trizin does NOT do this practice. Actually, MOST Lamas and Rinpoches do NOT and HAVE NOT done this practice. Tsem Tulku is being extremely dishonest by only putting two names on the list of non-practitioners

      Dear Todd Rush Chambers,

      His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche is from the monastery, he is connected to many Rinpoches and many monks, many Geshes and many masters and teachers. He has many Gurus and friends in various monasteries. None of the information on this page is wrong or inaccurate. If you read each and every one of the memes correctly, it states if the lamas are associated with, or are from monasteries that practice, formally practiced or if they are currently practicing Dorje Shugden. This is what this page is about.

      Rizong Rinpoche actually comes from a monastery in the area of Ladakh. Dorje Shugden is actually prevalent among the lay practitioners there. One of His Eminence’s Gurus lived in Ladakh, and this is actually very well-known and recounted by his Guru.

      Gelek Rinpoche actually practiced Dorje Shugden his whole life, until recently. His root Gurus were Trijang Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche. This was actually mentioned by Gelek Rinpoche personally to Tsem Rinpoche. It clearly states on the memes that he practiced for most of his life, which he did.

      Also, the Sakya lineage has four previous Sakya Trizins (30th, 31st, 33rd & 39th) who are the current Sakya Trizins forefathers, who practiced, actively promoted and instituted prayers in their monasteries to Dorje Shugden (http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-sakya-lineage-dorje-shugden.html). The Sakya lineage therefore, includes the propitiation of Dorje Shugden and in fact Dorje Shugden was practiced within the Sakya Lineage before he was practiced in the Gelug Lineage.

      So there is nothing wrong or dishonest about any of this and when you say that most lamas do not or have not practiced Dorje Shugden, this is not correct. Thank you for coming here to share your opinion. Please do understand this was not posted to offend anyone, but we are just telling the truth. I wish you the best in life and our common goal of attaining enlightenment for the benefit of all.

      Regards,
      Pastor Niral Patel.

      • Todd Rush Chambers on Mar 31, 2016 at 3:40 am

        Pastor Niral-ji, HH the CURRENT Sakya Trizin simply does NOT do this practice, and he has, in fact, spoken out AGAINST the practice.

        NO Nyingma or Kagyu Rinpoches do this practice. Many of them are against the practice (Chatral Rinpoche, Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, HH the Mindrolling Trichen), so to imply that only the 13th and 14th Dalai Lamas have a “problem” with the practice is EXTREMELY dishonest.

        • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Mar 31, 2016 at 4:06 am

          When all the monks left Tibet in 1959, all the four lineage teachers and monks resided in Buxa refugee camp together. All the monks and high lamas were in close contact daily. It was seen clearly that Sakya Trizin included Dorje Shugden Tanag (Shugden on a black horse, as per the Sakya tradition) within the pantheon of deities he made offerings to in those early days. The senior monks of Gaden, Sera and Drepung all witnessed this clearly as they were in close proximity. There are hundreds of senior monks in their 70’s and 80’s who can attest to this clearly and these monks do not lie. Remember, Dorje Shugden’s practice was in the Sakya tradition way before the Gelugs and it still is in Tibet.

          The main Sakya monastery in Tibet still have paintings and images of Dorje Shugden in Tibet. We know this because our friends and relatives have visited. We have close Sakya monk friends from Tibet and they still practice Dorje Shugden, and confirmed that Dorje Shugden Tanag is practiced there now. Not everyone in Sakya has abandoned Shugden as not everyone is in agreement with abandoning this practice. The Phuntsok Phodrang Sakya Dagchen in Washington has never spoken against Dorje Shugden and also continues to practise Dorje Shugden, according to old monks.

          The current Sakya Trizin has had no choice but to speak about Dorje Shugden due to pressure from Dharamsala. But it does not matter whether he speaks about it or not, because not everyone in Sakya will follow what he says (in the same way not everyone in Gelug will follow what the Dalai Lama says).

          Some lamas may have spoken out against Dorje Shugden, but MANY MORE lamas have NOT spoken out and continue to practice, for example His Holiness the 9th Panchen Rinpoche who relied on Dorje Shugden until the end of his life.

          There have been Nyingmas and Kagyus who also practice Shugden, as laypeople in Tibet have always crossed over into each other’s practices. Our lama and friends have many relatives in Tibet and they attest to this.

          You had by the way also mentioned Chatral Rinpoche, Namkhai Norbu and Mindrolling Trichen as not practicing. By the way they have no authority or business to comment on the Dorje Shugden practice within the Gelug tradition. It’s none of their business and in fact, for them to comment on it, it is sectarian of them to do so.

          Thank you,
          Pastor Jean Ai

            Also, not only HH the current Sakya Trizin, but also one of his root Gurus, the Great Khyentse Chokyi Lodro Rinpoche, opposed this practice.

            If we are considering all four traditions (Nyingma, Sakya, Gelug, and Kagyu), then MOST Lamas have NOT done this practice.

            In this video, Tsem Tulku dishonestly only lists HH the 13th Dalai Lama and HH the 14th Dalai Lama has being opposed to the practice:

            Todd,

            Interesting to see you here. Weren’t you the one that kept spamming Tsem Rinpoche on twitter till you were blocked? Looks like your doing it here again.

            What do you get out of all this? Who appointed you and made you protector of pure and impure Buddhism or your version of it? You have no authority. You have no studies, no background, no nothing. You are not even a monk. So where do you get off telling anyone anything about their practice, lineage and authenticity.

            BTW, Chokyi Lodro has no business in Gelug affairs. He never gave Tsongkapa initiations, practice, oral transmissions. He never gave any teachings on the 18 volumes of written works by Tsongkapa or disciples. He never taught anything from Gelug texts. He knows nothing about Gelug practices and he has no right to criticize if he did about Gelug, Dorje Shugden or Gelug lineage. None of his students teach anything from the Gelug lineage either. Don’t bring a lawmaker from Canada to insist on formulation of laws in USA. No jurisdiction.

          • Tenzin Tsephel on Mar 31, 2016 at 5:25 pm

            @Todd,

            As for Sakya Trizin, he’s pretty sectarian too. He gives no teachings or initiations from the Gelug school of Buddhism. Why does he have to be a Sakya throne holder? Why can’t he be a throne holder of all Buddhism if that is necessary at all and why only Sakya. In fact throne holders of a particular lineage only uphold their lineage and keep reinforcing the superiority of their lineage by saying they are the throne holders of a lineage. They always insist the superiority of their lineages and indirectly are saying other lineages are not as good by default. Think about it.

            When you see a Theravadin senior monks, all Theravadin Buddhist laity in all Theravadin countries (eg Burma, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Laos, Cambodia, etc) and sangha respect him. He is not a throne holder of a particular Theravadin sect but a master of Buddhism. A senior learned monk of Buddhism full stop. No conflicts.

            There are a lot of inherent faults in Tibetan Buddhism and their ecclesiastical system and hierarchy. This by default promotes the collection of power, wealth, accumulation of wealth, position, name, properties. Buddha taught no attachment and simplicity. It’s far, far, far from the Buddha’s teachings. It’s a lot of men, in big hats, big uniforms sitting on big thrones seemingly competing. Just be simple monks.

            In fact for hundreds of years there are two Sakya ‘Palaces’ till now. Dolma Podrang and Phuntsok Podrang. The current Sakya Trizin is Dolma Podrang. The previous one to him was from Puntsok Podrang. The switch taking thrones from one generation to another. By right, after the current one passes away, then the son of the Phuntsok Podrang ascends the throne and the perks, fame, name, money, wealth, travel, offerings and you name it are accorded to him as the new Sakya Trizin. Sounds like European royalty. But because of in house disagreements that has been happening for hundreds of years between the two Podrangs, Chokyi Lodro told them to share the power and not one Sakya Trizin should hold onto power for a lifetime. The two throne holders of Phuntsok Podrang (Sakya Jigdal in Washington state) and the Sakya Trizin (incumbent) of Dolma Podrang has come to a stunning agreement that starting from 2017, all Sakya Trizins (throneholders) will only serve a THREE YEAR TERM. What the hec can they accomplish in three years? So all the sons of Dolma Podrang (current incumbent Sakya Trizin has two sons) and the Sakya Jigdal Phuntsok Podrang (has 5 sons) will sit on the throne and receive all the perks. It’s about power, amassing fortune.

            They have more issues that are quietly fought on in the private arena that you will ever know of. Instead of practicing renunciation, asceticism and as the Buddha taught, they are more interested on who sits on the throne. Sounds like the Vatican. So Sakya Trizin the current one has no right to criticize anything on Gelug affairs or Dorje Shugden. He should just practice dharma and stop making issues who sits on the Sakya throne and whether Dorje Shugden is enlightened or not. Why is there a need for a Sakya throne or throne holder anyway? Why don’t they install a throne holder by meritocracy? Whoever within Sakya is the most learned and well-practiced should ascend the throne. Why only these two families hold onto name, power and wealth. Tibetan serfdom is over.

            Todd, it’s good you bring this all up and I can share this type of information for more people to read and think for themselves. This will be here for many more years to come. You want to degrade Shugden? Well there is a lot of intrigue and dirt in the other lineages, as well as power games and all that too. Sakya has plenty of intrigues. So Sakya Trizin will do well to keep quiet. Chokyi Lodro with his wife and he wearing monk robes would do well to keep quiet about Shugden too. Buddha left the palace, surrendered his wife and child. Chokyi Lodro has a wife, wears monk robes, kids and et al. So I am not against any of them. I am sure there were some saintly and holy Sakya Trizins in the past, but do not get involved or comment on Gelug affairs.

            Chokyi Lodro may been a scholar or master but he didn’t teach anything Gelug. Not totally Rime is he? Chokyi Lodro having a wife and wearing robes on a throne is frowned upon by the whole Gelug, Theravadin Buddhist world of millions. That is controversial to the many monks of the Southeast Buddhist tradition and Gelugs. How about if every person wearing monk robes with shaven heads had wives? In front, they act as monks and wear robes and behind they have wives and children? How would that look? You can argue Chokyi Lodro is attained and not attached to wife and children, then why have one in the first place and what example is he setting for unattained monks? Certainly this is much more controversial than Shugden. 99% of senior Gelug lamas and monks don’t even know who Chokyi Lodro is nor care. Who needs to listen to him and his opiinions on Shugden if it’s so negative. Who is he? He has no jurisdiction on Shugden or Gelug or Panchen Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche and so on who taught on Shugden. The great 9th Panchen Lama of Tashilunpo propitiated Shugden his whole life. Has huge chapels in his monastery for Dorje Shugden. The great 9th Panchen even composed extended and medium prayers to Dorje Shugden. Panchen Lama manifested as a layman and wore the chuba of a layman and was a great teacher, scholar and light in the darkness for the six million Tibetans. Sorry for you. I have nothing against Chokyi Lodro and I am sure he is kind, but for the sake of debate, you brought it up. His Holiness the Great Panchen Lama does not need Chokyi Lodro nor Sakya Trizins approval to proliferate and practice Shugden. Don’t create disharmony is better for them. It’s not their business to comment on Dorje Shugden. Gelugs do not practice Dorje Drolod or Guru Rinpoche but that is not sectarian. Nyingmas do not practice Je Tsongkapa as a yidam and his teachings, that is not sectarian. If Gelugs said something about their practices, they would be unhappy. So they should never speak about Gelug practices or speak outside their lineage. Their opinions carry no weight to any of us.

            Sure. Name me a Sakya lama that still propagates Shugden then. All I can find is your hated Bonpo shamans of Nepal still uptaking your spirit even today.

        • Tenzin Tsephel on Apr 1, 2016 at 12:15 am

          Whether the current Sakya Trizin practices Dorje Shugden or not, who cares. He is insignificant and his term as Sakya Trizin is over next year. Then the next one steps in for three years. Don’t you know the new Sakya ruling?

          Sakya Trizin has no right to comment or negate any Shugden practice within Sakya as his forefathers (four previous Sakya throne holders) practiced, composed prayers and built chapels to Shugden. When he says they don’t practice in Sakya, he is dishonest. It’s a well known fact Sakya Trizin is very interested in making money and has a reputation about that coming from his Western organizers of his tours. So much money to be had that there was conflict and now his term is over next year and the new one steps in.

          • Dongho on Jun 11, 2018 at 1:21 pm

            Excuse me? And when did you as a Gelugpa have the right to comment over my lineage, the Sakya? Is he your head? No! So why care on that? He is not your head, the Ganden Tripa is(or your guru), so you can shut up about that. And also, the Sakya Trizin is affiliated with this because you keep up this “claim” that Shugden is a Sakyapa, yet in our context, he is a minor protector that is a traitor. Yes, Shugden is not sectarian, but a traitor to both the Sakya and Drukpa lineages by supporting the Gelugpa lineage against the combined Rime group that was trying to protect the teachings from the sectarian Gelugpa. Whether he betrays the Gelugpa next, I do not know. However, a spirit that has a schism over whether to worship him or not is not to be trusted. Do you not remember what the Buddha said? Causing a schism among the sangha is one of the 5 heinous crimes that is going to cause one to be reborn in Avici Hell(aka. Vajra Hell). If you keep up with this rubbish and affiliate the other lineages to join in in this crappy controversy by claiming we worshiped this deity(as a minor protector who is not a major part of the Sakyapas) and overly exaggerate the “enlightened” claim of your deity, then what are we to do other than step in and defend out lineage? And how do we know that this claim of yours of the previous Sakya Trizins is not some piece of evidence you made up or one of the Shugden lamas made up just so that they could use this evidence as a support for them? Enough with this shit! The Sakya has had enough to do with the Gelugpa controversy! Sort it out already! Send your oracle to the Nechung then if you want to make your claim official! Enough is enough! We are finished with shit!

          • Dongho on Jun 11, 2018 at 1:35 pm

            And how dare you try to slander one of the most respected Sakya masters in our lineage! Do you know how much pain Pabongkhapa has given us? First he supports us, then all of the sudden, he wants to destroy us! Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo had a right to speak out against this spirit! First we allow Shugden to be a minor protector, then he betrays us and tries to destroy us and several other lineages. How can he not criticize this traitor?!!???!? Especially if it’s now trying to destroy the sacred lineage he is of! Whether Shugden is sectarian or not, it does not matter. We can clearly see that he is simply a traitor willing to take up whatever side for this own selfish ego for power! What else do you expect from a gyalpo? Yet, you continue your worship of him even when Lord Chenrezig’s incarnation has advised against this practice for the entire lineage and now, you even hate this man and now are having angry protestors deluding themselves by hating a bodhisattva! Do you not remember what Shantideva said? Even one second of anger towards a bodhisattva will cause one to lose countless eons of merit! Do you not see how much you are deluding yourselves to this spirit just so that you can express your anger against a bodhisattva? Whatever the case is, it is clear that this spirit is not to be trusted and will simply delude his own followers to lose merits and be reborn into the lower realms through this anger. If he is so enlightened, then why is their a schism over him then? It is clear that a deity who still has a schism over him is not to be followed. But then again, what do expect from a gyalpo like Shugden? Your insult of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo and the Sakya Trizin is already an indicator of how traitorous your spirit is in leading you to this far. I pray you finally be free of the grasps of this gyalpo along with many others. Hum Phat Svaha!

      Rizong Rinpoche, his village in Ladakh and many of his students did practice Dorje Shugden for sure till the ban by Dalai Lama. Rizong Rinpoche has been heavily pressured by Dalai Lama’s people to stop. Till this day, Gaden Tripa Rizong Rinpoche has not said one single negative word against Dorje Shugden. Be sure of that. His many senior students attest to this.

  16. Pastor Adeline on Mar 13, 2016 at 5:54 pm

    If we look into the Dorje Shugden controversy, it is not difficult to tell that the well educated and highly attained lamas and meditators who support the practise outnumbered those who oppose it. Technically speaking, there’s only one who opposes, the rest who really suppress and reinforce it are lay people without much or no knowledge of the dharma simply because the methods they use are against the dharma – violence, suppression, threat, deny of human rights and freedom of speech etc.

    Whether these masters are still practitioners or not, it has been proven that the Dorje Shugden practise is adopted by many and they cannot be the minority. These practitioners have many students who practice too, and if we do a simple calculation, we can easily get thousands, this is really common sense we should look into, instead of listening to a group of politicians who are interested solely in their own welfare.

  17. Sofi on Mar 10, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    Thank you for sharing of so many highly attained Lamas that practises or had practised Lord Dorje Shugden as a Protector. Many had propitiated this powerful practise to their many students or followers for as long as 400 years ago. To keep Lord Dorje Shugden practise alive for 400 years must mean that it had been beneficial to our dharmic path and why only now 19 years ago did His Holiness the Dalai Lama ban his practise and cites unsubstantiated reasons for this unreasonable ban.
    All these illustrious Lamas can’t be wrong and only His Holiness be right….it just does not make sense!!!
    I agree with Rinpoche’s clear and logical explaination in this article and his videos.

    Dear Rinpoche, Admin and Team,

    Thank you for this series that not only educates the readers more about Dorje Shugden, his practice, and forms, but also on these lamas, most of which I have never met before, but share common ground in our practice, affinity, and ties with Dorje Shugden.

    Many people say that the practise of Dorje Shugden is bad, but cannot really substantiate why it is bad, besides saying that His Holiness Dalai Lama says its bad and we should not practice it. But what about all the other teaches, lamas, monks, geshes out there, who are teachers of the highest calibre as His Holiness is, who have relied and practise Dorje Shugden all their life, and some even after entering clear light, has had their incarnation enthroned in this life? How is the practice of Dorje Shugden bad, when the Lama’s incarnation is back, unmistaken, and some even recognised by His Holiness himself? Baffles me!

    As for me, my teacher, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, has given me this practice, and each time, Dorje Shugden has helped me to move along my spiritual path, and even in trance, advised and taught us based on the doctrine of Buddha Shakyamuni, as you can see here:

  19. JP on Mar 5, 2016 at 7:21 pm

    So many elite and illustrious Buddhist masters propitiate Dorje Shugden practice as shown in the memes in this article. And as Rinpoche wrote, this is just a small list of masters. It’s impossible that only HHDL recently realized that Dorje Shugden is a harmful spirit after 400 years. In terms of spiritual attainments, many other masters are the same as HHDL. So what Rinpoche wrote above makes so much logical sense.

    Many people tend to be blinded by fanaticism and become abusive as a result. Everyone has the right to choose their own faiths. Just because I don’t believe in HHDL’s allegations on Dorje Shugden, doesn’t mean I need to go on a crusade bashing his followers for giving up the practice. And likewise, just because HHDL’s followers give up Dorje Shugden’s practice, doesn’t give them the right to discriminate and abuse Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    I have enjoyed reading books or watching paranormal videos from time to time.. I do believed unseen beings definitely do exist. As long as we do no harm or disturb them , they too do us no harm. But in all we got to accept it seriously as in some cases the unseen beings might be aggressive. We are fortunate we have Dorje Shugden protecting us ….having trust and faith in our practice , respecting the unseen being by making offerings to them. All the paranormal stories which Rinpoche experiences were interesting and scary. I do enjoyed the snake spirit , Banging Pots to name . Seem to be interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    Amazing ……The Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. It was once the residence of the HH Dalai Lama until the HH 14th Dalai Lama fled to India during the 1959 Tibetan uprising. It is now a museum and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The palace is named after Mount Potalaka, the mythical abode of the bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara. It is one of the most famous attractions in Tibet and it seem to be the highest ancient palace around the world. Its in my bucket list to go there for a pilgrimage. That’s my wish after reading and seeing those beautiful pictures of the place. Potala Palace is a must-see attraction in Lhasa.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    This article is a very precious sharing on Gen Nyima and Dorje Shugden oracle. I appreciate very much and would like to share some of my thoughts here:

    The Significance of Dorje Shugden
    a. Although Gen Nyima did not practice Dorje Shugden but he confirmed that Dorje Shugden is Manjushri and everyone knows this especially all the high lamas.
    b. There was one time HH the 98th Gaden Tripa Jetsun Jampel Shenpen was very ill and his secretary came to visit Gen Nyima. Gen Nyima advised to perform a full Dorje Shugden Torgya ritual. This is because Dorje Shugden has become the principal Protector of Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition and therefore by performing these pujas, Gaden Tripa would recover.

    The importance of guru devotion
    Dorje Shugden always protects, helps and guides faithful practitioners in spiritual path. If one person does not practice the dharma, against the guru’s advice or disrespecting guru, will not lead the person to enlightenment path. For this instance, Rinpoche asked the Protector Dorje Shugden not to take trance in the lady. After that, it was told that Dorje Shugden never took trance through her again. The lady went to monasteries and requested to become an oracle again, but she was told to repair her samaya with her teacher.

    Focus and have faith in practice
    It is believed that Gen Nyima practiced and focused on Yamantaka. Gen Nyima practiced Yamantaka diligently that included daily sadhana for 4 times per day with rituals and offerings, mantra recitations and full meditation. Gen Nyima said if practice Yamantaka, do not need any other Protector because Yamantaka is also a Protector. Gen Nyima only relied on Yamantaka for many matters included divinations, bless and heal the people and control the weather etc.

    It is said that if you reveal the deity you practise, you will not gain attainments. But, Gen Nyima told Rinpoche about his practice on Yamantaka and this implied that he has achieved higher levels of spiritual attainments and he is no different from Yamantaka. Furthermore, HH the 14th Dalai Lama believed and certified Gen Nyima’s meditational attainments and abilities. HH the 14th Dalai Lama asked Gen Nyima not to die or show signs of old age and sickness. Gen Nyima replied that he will follow the instruction.

    The practice of Eight Worldly Concerns
    Gen Nyima had studied up to the Madhyamaka (Middle Way) philosophy level in the monastery. Gen Nyima was very humble, sincere and he did not want to sit the examinations and earn a degree. He just wanted to meditate.

    When Gen Nyima lived in deep forest of Bhutan, he had helped and healed many people including the Queen Mother of Bhutan. There was no greed or selfishness in Gen Nyima. He only took very little of the money that needed for his and his assistant’s subsistence. While the balance of the money would offer to HH the Dalai Lama and Gaden Monastery. Another example was Gen Nyima just used an Amul cheese container for divinations instead of silver, brass, wood or clay divination boxes.

    Inspiring yet powerful article and transcript of Mr Chen, the Chinese Buddhist billionaire. He has started an online games company and had accumulated worth of billions yet feeling unhappy and streesful. He eventually decided he had to salvage his own health after experiencing panic attacks. At the peak of his career he decided to put his wealth for something more meaningful. Combined with his Buddhist beliefs, convinced him to study and commit to researching the human brain and to transcend suffering.
    He gave out most of his fortune to support brain research.
    And even gave millions to various causes, including education, charities, healthcare, disaster relief, and poverty relief. He realised at end of the day , wealth is not everything , we should let go , afterall dealth is unpreditable. An example to all of us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing.

    A wonderful details write-up for anyone who is planning a pilgrimage or visiting there. Its will makes the trip such easier. A very profound teachings and explanations of the four Sacred sites of Vajra Yogini in Nepal. Beautiful pictures of 4 important sites of Vajra Yogini which I am fortunate to have a look at. I have not been to Kathmandu before but would love to visit if I have the opportunity. In fact getting excited after reading this article and watching those videos. Learning some new knowledge of what to do after visiting each site and at the end of trip and making the four aspirational prayers as recommended.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for this brief introduction of the most recognisable landmark in Lhasa, the Potala Palace. At the centre of the Tibetan government and also the winter palace of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, this magnificent 13-storey building is indeed a architecture masterpieces. It is also interesting to note the mystical Demoness of Tibet that illustrates the physical location of important monasteries in Tibet.

    Voodoo is an Afro-Caribbean religion where by their practices revolve around specific beliefs and a pantheon of Gods and Goddesses. These African Voodoo practice has been going on for many hundreds of years. It was once misunderstood. Some claimed as witchcraft but they are not and it is still practiced today. It was declared as a true religion where everyone can practices freely and worship as they like without discrimination.
    Because of the Tibetan Leadership (CTA) political agenda and due to the differences from their own belief, they instituted the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners. At this century everyone should given the freedom to choose what they believes and what to practise without discrimination.
    Is heart breaking to read articles on the CTA’s official website of the ban which has indeed cause disharmony among the Tibetan communities. The Tibetan Leadership at one side said that everyone can have the freedom to practise but at one end they are against it. They are not truly democratic at all. Dorje Shugden practice is banned by the Tibetan leadership while the Voodoo was banned by European colonisers previously. As times goes by the authority accepted the voodoo practice. The CTA should followed the example of what actually a democratic country like by lifting the ban so as people can practice freely to what they want .
    Its wonderful to know of the Voodoo’s practice from the videos.
    May HH Dalai Lama please lift the ban soon to create a peaceful and harmonious communities .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great post for many to have a better understanding of our own Malaysian land…..state of Kedah. Many of us are not aware of the beauty of Kedah. I have been twice there yet still could not cover all corners as it is a vast State. Yes ..its definitely a place to visit this ‘ Rice bowl of Malaysia’ which was sometimes called. Visited the mainland and Langkawi Island which has plenty to offer to locals as well as foreigner. The many places of interests are fantastic which has a historical stories and legends behind it. I have visited those common places like … Paddy Museum, Pulau Payar Marine Park, Tasik Dayang Bunting , Mahsuri’s Tomb and so forth to name a few.
    Visitors to Kedah must try their delicacies which are different from those other states of Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Sharon Ong for this sharing .

    Thank you Rinpoche for these useful tips when we engage in a retreat. I think it is very important to set the highest motivation before engaging in a retreat and then focus on it during the retreat. We are really very fortunate to have all the guidance from Rinpoche and pastors and comfortable venue to do retreat here in Kechara. Appreciate Rinpoche’s kindness.

    Retreat is indeed a great way to breakaway from our busy schedule to seek for a calm and peaceful mind. Not only that, it is a great way to connect with the Buddha for a few days without any disturbance, just us and Buddha. We are all very fortunate that Rinpoche created Kechara Forest Retreat where we have a conducive environment for retreat. Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness.

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.

It is said by the caretakers not to go to this place at night. Because at night they hear gatherings and lots of voices. People in the village respectfully avoid this place as the dakinis (yoginis) gather at this place and if they are disturbed, there are fearful consequences worst than death for the intruder.

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    9 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
