Dear special friends around the world,

Thank you for visiting today. I have a very special treat for all of you. This is by special permission and I am excited to share with you all something profoundly close to my heart and beneficial for countless beings.

The interesting story of how Dorje Shugden arose as a supreme world peace protector is blogged here for your learning pleasure and blessings. He was many great beings in his previous lives prior to arising as the protector Dorje Shugden. In ‘Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors’ which is written by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche clearly reveals how Dorje Shugden arose as a dharma protector. When you understand this historical account, you will realize Dorje Shugden is no ordinary being but a enlightened being manifesting as a supreme protector. This story recounted here in the video and graphic novel are based on the history of how Dorje Shugden arose as a dharma protector according to His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche in ‘Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors’. Accuracy here is guaranteed.

‘Music Delighting The Ocean of Protectors’ is a complete volume which explains the practice, lineage, rituals, mandalas, meditations, history and benefits of Dorje Shugden. It includes retreats, how to make tormas, even practices for deeper retreats on this supreme Dorje Shugden. His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche personally wrote this text out in order to preserve the practice for future generations.

When Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was killed by the then Tibetan government due to jealousy of his fame, his future incarnations were outlawed and his ladrang (estates) confiscated. His incarnations continued to appear but without his official name and title until present day. All records of him and his written works numbering into many volumes were destroyed as well. His writings and works have been preserved in present day Mongolia. Many lamas have suffered the same fate by the Tibetan government in feudal Tibet. But thanks to the writings of the erudite scholar Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche we have an accurate account of the beginnings of this great protector.

I have sought and received permission to post here and share with the world the incredible history and background of how Dorje Shugden arose as a supreme Dharma protector. I thank the people who allowed this.

His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche the tutor to the 14th Dalai Lama for over 30 years. Trijang Rinpoche passed down many practices, lineages and transmission to H.H. the Dalai Lama as well as tens of thousands of monks in Drepung, Sera and Gaden Monastery. The senior masters and scholars of the Gelug world all have taken teachings from Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche without exception. Trijang Rinpoche was a scholar of the highest order, master of sutra and tantra and seasoned practitioner with pure attainments of the higher realms of meditations.

His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche was extremely close and good friends with His Holiness the Karmapa. Karmapa would visit Trijang Rinpoche and vice versa. Karmapa never had an issue with Trijang Rinpoche’s strong practice and proliferation of Dorje Shugden. Karmapa predicted there will come a time when many will need the assistance of Dorje Shugden. Even the current Karmapa never criticizes Dorje Shugden.

‘Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors’ is a whole volume of text solely devoted to the history and practice of Dorje Shugden written by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche predicted there will be ‘obstacles’ to the growth of Dorje Shugden in the future after he has passed. When that time comes he has penned down accurate information on this supreme protector so we can all refer to this text. He composed this text for those to learn more on Dorje Shugden. Looks like the time has come. This text has 555 Tibetan pages.

The two gurus of His Holiness the Dalai Lama for thirty years were exceptionally close, friendly and highly respectful of each other. It was their good relations that worked hand in hand in educating the young Dalai Lama to be the great scholar he is today. Their Holinesses Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Ling Rinpoche were scholars, meditational masters and writers of the highest caliber. Tibet would not have chosen any lesser to educate the Dalai Lama.

 

His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche or otherwise known affectionately as Kyabje Dechen Nyingpo

Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche was the root guru of both Their Holinesses Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Ling Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche held Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche in the highest regard. Their lineage all stem from Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s teachings. The majority of the Gelug school of Buddhism stem from this great master and lineage holder Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche

    Dear Rinpoche,

    As I read this story again, it reminds me that Dharma is not something that is nice to see only. To serve a greater purpose, one must even sacrifice one’s life for the benefits of many. Thank you for this graphic novel as it helps me to remember the story line better.

    Thank you again.

    This is a powerful picture of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and the current incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche meeting together in the year 2000 when Trijang Rinpoche was 18. All three lamas are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In fact Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen was the one that first encouraged my practice of Dorje Shugden when I was 16 years old when I joined his beautiful Thubten Dhargye Ling centre in Los Angeles. I lived with Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen for 8 years before proceeding to Gaden Monastery in South India. Later Kyabje Zong Rinpoche came to our Los Angeles centre and granted sogtae (permission ceremony) to practice Dorje Shugden for life as requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen had tremendous faith in Trijang Rinpoche. Kyabje Lati Rinpoche was innovative, dedicated and very much focused on bringing dharma to many. He had tremendous faith in Dorje Shugden as I had the honour to meet him many times. He would seek advice from Dorje Shugden many times via the oracle of Gaden Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen and Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche have since passed away while the current Trijang Rinpoche is a perfect lineage holder and practitioner of Dharma while he keeps Dorje Shugden as his personal protector as he has done so for many lifetimes. This is a powerful and beautiful picture of three great lamas of Buddha’s lineage and also of Gaden Monastery.

    Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being and arose as a dharma protector as indicated clearly in ‘Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors’, written by HH the 14th Dalai Lama’s root Guru, HH Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang.

    By having this illustrated story & graphic novel of Dorje Shugden, many people will learn and understand the history of Dorje Shugden especially in the area of how and why he arose as a dharma protector.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. May Dorje Shugden always helps, guides and protect the sincere practitioners from all lineages. May Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden practices and teachings spread to the ten directions to benefit all sentient beings.

    Dorje Shugden’s tale and origins are told in so much detail, the rise of Dorje Shugden came about under very stressful circumstances, so it is a surprise that so much details can still be passed down to us till this day.

    Dorje Shugden rose at a time, outside military forces to Tibet started to exert their influence on Tibet like the Mongolian forces. Soon Tibet’s larger neighbour China also fell under the Manchus who conquered China. So it was a time of much strife.

  6. Echeah on Apr 24, 2017 at 5:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful illustration of the story of Dorje Shugden. It had been a very useful introduction to Dorje Shugden for me and the children. So much effort has been put into dispelling the many misconceptions floating around and being perpetuated on the internet.

  7. MartinC on Feb 9, 2017 at 9:36 am

    Tsem Rinpoche has worked very hard over the years to provide accurate and important information about Dorje Shugden to dispel the malicious disinformation spread about the Protector. It is fantastic that Rinpoche’s efforts have translated into many people such as the commenter seeing the beauty in Dorje Shugden’s practice. Also Suzy has an interesting opinion about why His Holiness banned the practice. 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 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
    Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    5 things I learned from the graphic Novel
    – Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen came from illustrious incarnation line of great scholar and yogi with attainments
    – During one of his previous incarnations, as Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, he promised to arise as uncommon protector to protect Lama Tsongkhapa’s teaching
    – Out of compassion and to fulfill his promise, Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen allowed himself to be killed
    – Because the intent of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s killer is not good, and for the heavy karma of killing a high lama, there were many calamities in the region after Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was killed
    – Many high lamas including Dalai Lama could not destroyed Dorje Shugden with various pujas. This is a proof that DS is enlightened.

    Awesome comic on the origins of Dorje Shugden #protector #dharmpala #manjushri #birwapa

    “If the Dalai Lama, if His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by Dorje Shugden, then we might as well not practice Buddhism anymore. If His Holiness the Dalai Lama can have his life shortened by a so-called evil spirit, any evil spirit, then can he be Avalokiteshvara? So on one hand you say, we say, I say, everybody says, he is Avalokiteshvara; on the other hand you’re saying that he can harmed by an evil spirit… Which one is it? Can he harmed by an evil spirit or is he Avalokiteshvara? Do you think Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Tara all take refuge in something else to protect themselves from Dorje Shugden? How illogical is that? How illogical of people to say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by an evil spirit, any evil spirit or “Dorje Shugden” evil spirit. How is that possible?” – Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

  16. Phng Keng Hwa on Apr 25, 2015 at 5:15 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I remember my Grandma giving me this graphic novel to read. 🙂 It was a great book, although, at that time, I didn’t fully understand it. Now that I know a little more about Dorje Shugden and his lineage, when I went back to reread the book, I found it much more interesting than the last time. 🙂 Everything about this lineage is very interesting. And I find it fun to memorise the Four Drakpa’s :-). Pancen Sonam Drakpa, Tulku Drakpa Geltsyen, … … well, I’ve forgotten two. ^^;

    But I will go back and memorise them again. And in chronological order too. 🙂

    Your humble student,
    Keng Hwa.

  17. Edward Ooi on Apr 19, 2015 at 6:10 pm

    This is a fascinating story indeed. This story really shows how holy and powerful the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is. I don’t see any reason there for The Dalai Lama and the CTA to banned Dorje Shugden’s practice. It is so pure and beautiful. Dorje Shugden practices are known throughout the whole entire world. How is it able for Dorje Shugden to be an “evil spirit” when he has taken so many reincarnations and most of his reincarnations are widely known throughout Tibet, China, Nepal and India. How can Dorje Shugden be an evil spirit event when he has been recognized as an enlightened dharma protector by the 5th Dalai Lama? I have been practicing Dorje Shugden for most of my life and I can’t find anything wrong with practicing Dorje Shugden, instead he has helped me, my family and friends in many ways. I totally believe that Dorje Shugden is a rea Dharma protector and he is not an evil spirit. No matter what other people say about Dorje Shugden, I will always continue to believe in him even after my death.

  18. Adrian on Apr 5, 2015 at 12:24 am

    Thank you so much for the story. But should we disobey instruction from Dalai lama as he is the head of all tradition ?

  19. Julien Roth on Apr 1, 2015 at 11:21 pm

    I love this! I have a copy of the graphic novel as well. When i was younger and had little knowledge about Dorje Shugden, i read the graphic novel. It is really a fantastic way for children and young adults to learn about Dorje Shugden. The pictures and the way it looks like a comic book, makes it appealing to everyone, especially the younger age groups. It would make them want to read on as there are more pictures! haha.

    But what is most important is that people learn from the novel. Its not only fun to read but also fun to learn about Dorje Shugen. The message and story of Dorje Shugden is very well explained in the graphic novel and the language is also very easy for children to understand. It is a very smart way of spreading awareness of Dorje Shugden. I hope that many buy the graphic novel. Or at least come here to read it online.

  20. Vinnie Tan on Mar 29, 2015 at 3:17 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for both the comic and the video with all of us here on the blog.

    It is just such a great honour to be able to read the full story of Dorje Shugden. How has the previous lives of Dorje Shugden is like and how he manifested to be who he is. It is interesting to me that Manjushri manifested as a student of Shakyamuni’s time and also during Lord Tsongkhapa’s time.

    From the actions that Dulzin Drapkpa Gyeltsen knowing that the dove that flew in during Tsongkhapa’s teachings, it has already shown the clairvoyance of this great master. I think it is really cool that the dove later appeared as Nechung in the form of a young boy when Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen confronted the dove.

    From the fire puja not being able to subdue Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen it shows that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen is not a evil spirit or even a spirit. Instead, he has already manifested to become a protector. Through the wrath that was manifested, it has aided him to become a dhrama protector.

    with that, it shows that there is no wrong in taking refuge in Dorje Shugden or even practicing Dorje Shugden. Reason being that this great protector has agreed to become a uncommon protector of our times to help liberate us.

  21. Guillermo Soelter Mora on Mar 21, 2015 at 7:58 am

    Today, I’ve finished reading the whole text. I never knew much of Dorje Shugden, but now I have seen the litht. As the famous picture of Aleister Crowley & the Lamp of Wisdom. I got a New Kadampa Tradition initiation of Yhe Tsongkhapa, I barely could gather the money to pay the fee & buy the offerings, but I have always loved Buddhism so much that I did it whole heartedly by the then whole Mexico’s director. Unfortunately, that monk was feeling isolated from the central, not receiving feedback from England & asked to leave Mexico, seems he was discharged as a monk, he asked to become monk again, but Geshelah seems to have denied him such privilege. Then a very brilliant swiss lady took his post, she could speak 5 languages, had a perfect exposition even in Spanish & I met her here in Mazatlán, México at my friend the 72-year-old Kkadampa nun Ani Kelsang Khachö. Also got initiations of Hayagriva by the Dalai Lama ambassors here in town plus one or two by a Nepalese monk also (he said “The Dalai Lama doesn’t like Dorje Shugden”.
    Regards, Guillermo Soelter Mora.
    Post Stamp.-I pray to the the West protector “Archangel Michael & Kuan Yin” for Dorje Shugden affair to be solved.

  22. Josh Akers on Mar 13, 2015 at 3:18 am

    Thank you so very much to everyone involved in this project. It saved me some money right now to have it free. I still want the book though…

    This is Tsem Rinpoche’s compassion, allowing us to view this book freely… Who else makes books and then allows them to be published FOR FREE.

    It makes me really feel like any money you DO give to Tsem Rinpoche or Kechara will be well spent. The proof is right here. There are a lot of people out there who don’t even have 8 dollars for a book, yet at the same time will benefit much from reading it. Here it is.

    That MEANS something, you know? It does to me. Rinpoche knows (or he does now) I’m a cheapskate but he still takes care of me. I never really have to spend a dime on Dharma from Kechara. I try to, though, because that’s how laypeople collect merits. Im never forced to. Never.

  23. Julia Tan on Mar 12, 2015 at 9:41 pm

    This comic book is really a jewel to those who’s interested in Dorje Shugden. It is the fastest and most interesting way to learn about Dorje Shugden. From young until old also easy to read and understand. I love it because of the colourful illustrations. Not only that, it came from a very reliable recourses based on ‘Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors’ which is a whole volume of text solely devoted to the history and practice of Dorje Shugden written by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche.

    H.H. Trijang Rinpoche even predicted there will be ‘obstacles’ to the growth of Dorje Shugden in the future after he has passed. When that time comes he has penned down accurate information on this supreme protector so we can all refer to this text. He composed this text for those to learn more on Dorje Shugden. I do hope more and more people will find the truth of Dorje Shugden who is the true protector who has benefited countless people. Please do not discriminate those who love Dorje Shugden and follow the practice. I solute those who hold on to the practice and go all the way despite of all the hardship and hurtful experience that they faced due to the ban. My prayers with them always. I sincerely request HHDL to remove the ban.

  24. Tempa on Mar 12, 2015 at 6:39 am

    “World Peace Buddha and Protector Gyelchen Dorje Shugden” (?) If there ever is a protector, we need it now. Seriously, the above photo of HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Roman Catholic Pope meeting help connect the dots I’ve been looking for, thanks. Possibly a initial clue as to why Shugden practice was banned considering Vatican in Rome, is the seat of global power & control. Shugden practices doesn’t comply with their beliefs & agenda, it’s the opposite.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this Dorje Shugden comic based on H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors”.

    H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s great work detailing the events Dorje Shugden arose as a Dharma Protector to protect the holy teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa and specifically of the correct view on emptiness as taught by Nagarjuna.

    This comic and the video above will definitely help to clear away doubts and restore faith on Dorje Shugden as an enlightened Dharma Protector. Many more people will benefit from this holy practice.

    May this be the cause for the conciliation between H.H. Dalai Lama’s side and the Shugden’s followers.

    With folded hands,
    Pastor Gim Lee

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing The Dorje Shugden Story with us.We are very fortunate to be given the opportunity to understand the history and the reason for the rise of Dorje Shugden as a protector of our time.
    We are very fortunate that H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche are so generous to preserve the lineage and the essence of the practice .In order to share it with us through “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors”.
    May all those who have a chance to see this illustrated story of Dorje Shugden gain a better insight into the practice and the lineage of this Enlighten Dharma Protector. May the tibetan buddhist community be clear of all the misunderstanding in the past about this Dharma Protector and lift the ban for DORJE SHUGDEN…….

  27. nicholas on Mar 11, 2015 at 11:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing the lineage & history of Dorje Shugden. The illustration make one easy to understand especially for the young one.

    Knowing the background of Dorje Shugden which is from “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors” composed by Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang, I have no doubt for the authenticity from our lineage master.

    It’s very informative and make sense that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector as if he’s a spirit he would be subdued or killed during the fire Puja. This point is unarguable.

    May more people read up and understand better of this lineage protector.

  28. antoinette on Mar 11, 2015 at 11:20 pm

    Thank You for sharing this wonderful graphic novel and illustrated story about Dorje Shugden. It is amazing what Dorje Shugden had to endure to become a Dharma Protector to help all of us.

    How kind of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche to write down the practice, lineage, rituals, mandalas, meditations, history and benefits of Dorje Shugden in “Music Delighting, The Ocean of Protectors”.

    I cannot imagine how a such a holy lama was killed due to jealousy and his future incarnations were outlawed, and his ladrang confiscated. All records of Him and His writings were destroyed. And many lamas suffered the same fate. May this never happen again!

  29. Pastor Henry Ooi on Mar 11, 2015 at 11:06 pm

    These wonderful illustrations narrating the history and background of Dorje Shugden were very well written with excellent quality in its artwork and presentation. It would enrich and benefit many people globally with its rich information by providing a good platform to their dharma path. Thank you Rinpoche for posting it here and thanks to the unsung owner(s) who gave their permission

  30. pammie yap on Mar 11, 2015 at 11:05 pm

    A BIG thank you to Rinpoche and the people who allowed this to be shared with people around the world.
    But most of all, a BIGGER thank you to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche for writing ‘Music Delighting The Ocean of Protectors’ with such accurate information for without this we and the future generations will not be able to understand the whole story.
    The illustrated story practically sum up quite a lot of information for new people and especially children who love to watch stories rather than reading. I really do hope that this will bring much clearer picture for the people who have wrong views of Dorje Shugden.
    May the misunderstanding and ban be lifted ASAP.

    May Dorje Shugden be recognized officially by His Holiness Dalai Lama as the protector of our time.

  31. Li Kheng on Mar 11, 2015 at 10:52 pm

    Wow, this graphic novel is a quick and easy way to learn about the story of Dorje Shugden. The illustration story is also an interaction method of learning. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing them on Rinpoche’s blog. It is easy to share Dorje Shugden’s story with people, even young individuals, using this material.

    Personally, it is awesome to read about all the renowned Dorje Shugden Lamas of the Gelugpa lineage whose work has caused the Dharma to flourish outside of Tibet today. These Lama’s who practice Dorje Shugden are the most illustrious of our time. In fact, their reincarnations have all returned to continue turning the wheel of Dharma. This shows that Dorje Shugden is practiced by high Lamas over several lifetimes, which in turn means that the practice is one that has a track record of tangible and accountable benefits.

    Another factor that stands out is that Dorje Shugden is a only Protector i know of that especially arose from a High Lama to become a Protector. In fact, a lot of effort was put into the manifestation of Dorje Shugden from the lifetime of Dultzin Dragpa Gyeltsen. Unlike Dorje Shugden, other protectors either arose from unenlightened beings that were tamed by Guru Rinpoche to protect the Dharma or are emanation of enlightened Buddhas, e.g. Setrap is the emanation of Amitabha. If all the great masters and “servants” of Dharma would plot to create the cause for DOrje Shugden to manifest, Dorje Shugden is an extremely special and important Dharma protector.

  32. Pastor Chia on Mar 11, 2015 at 9:18 pm

    This illustrated story of Lord Dorje Shugden video and graphic novel is profound and easy understanding. I personal like the comic,i hope at future can make the comic in 3D movie, i believe many people will like at watch it again and again.

    Thank you Rinpoche and who involve creating this beautiful comic book and video sharing to many friends in the world.I had more understand and clear about Dorje shugden lineage,ritual and how his practice has passed down from Tagphu Pemavajra who received the practice from Dorje Shugden directly and pass down to Kyabje Pabongka Dorje Chang and Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang who composed “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors”.

  33. Khoo Hou Haw on Mar 11, 2015 at 8:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful comic of Dorje Shugden. It is very nicely illustrated and makes us easy to remember the story of Protector Dorje Shugden. Since this comic is based on “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors” by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, I will have no doubt on its accuracy. On the other hand, it is very sad to know that the then Government of feudal Tibet had destroyed all records and written works. But we are very lucky to have Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche to preserve the practice of Protector Dorje Shugden and many high lama to spread this very beneficial practice around the world. Thank you Rinpoche.

  34. Sofi on Mar 11, 2015 at 6:45 pm

    This is a beautifully illustrated story of Lord Dorje Shugden which is easy to understand and shows clearly the lineage and authenticity of Dorje Shudgen. It also shows how faultless this authentic practise has been carried down to us of this present time. The Gurus are faultless as are the dharma they taught, therefore their practise of Dorje Shugden would be faultless too. Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

  35. DR on Mar 11, 2015 at 6:39 pm

    The producer of the video has put in much research and thoughts into producing it. The lineage and history is all ‘packed’ into a 29min video. One of the things I appreciate most about the video is that although it is produced in the West (judging from the narration), it has Chinese subtitle too that will benefit the people in China as the practice of Dorje Shugden is very popular in mainland China.

    As I watched the concise video again, it’s baffling why the anti Dorje Shugden people are still in denial and creating so much animosity towards the practitioners when the history and lineage is undisputed. I have heard repeatedly from critics saying that Dorje Shugden practice shortens the Dalai Lama’s life. Even in the most simplistic thinking (without going back to the history), how can Chenresig on earth (as the Dalai Lama is often referred to as) be affected by an evil spirit? And even IF Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit, then why can’t the great masters in the monastery and monks do a ritual to dispel the spirit? So to me, it all just doesn’t make sense.

    The conflict on Dorje Shugden practice has gone beyond just politics and denying practitioners of religious freedom. It has escalated to the stage where practitioners are denied of even basic human rights imposed and inflicted by those from the anti Dorje Shugden side resulting in families and friends breaking up, children being denied of entry to schools, the sick denied of medical facilities, etc etc. It is so sad to see that something as pure as a Buddhist practice can become so painful for the sincere practitioners.

    May many more be educated and enlightened by this video and comic and bring an end to the conflict soon. Thank you Rinpoche for always bringing the Truth to all sentient beings in ways that the mass can relate too. This is one of the many qualities of Dorje Shugden as symbolised by his curved sword: using skillful methods in helping those drowning in the ocean of samsara.

  36. Pastor Han Nee on Mar 11, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this graphic novel that tells so clearly the story of how Dorje Shugden arose as a Supramundane Protector and of the illustrious Lineage of incarnations of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen from whom Dorje Shugden arose. The graphic novel is based on the historical account as given by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche in “Music delighting the Ocean of Protectors” .

    This gives all readers the blessed opportunity to learn from an authentic source the whole story of how and why Dorje Shugden arose to serve specifically the needs of this degenerate age – to protect the profound wisdom teachings of Je Tsonghkhapa -based on Nagarjuna’s unerring Middle View of Emptiness, the correct view. The illustrated story allows even children to understand the story of Dorje Shugden.

  37. KYC on Mar 11, 2015 at 12:05 pm

    This illustrated story of Dorje Shugden is based on H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors”. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s work is very useful to understand and appreciate the reasons Dorje Shugden arose as a Protector. It will help one to clear any doubts regarding this holy and powerful protector practice.

  38. Frederick Law on Mar 11, 2015 at 1:19 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for the explanation the essence of ‘Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors’, which is very important to understand the history where Dharmapala Dorje Shugden arose as Dharma Protector.

    The illustration and storyline is very well created, and very easy to understand the storyline and also its content. It is suitable for all age group, especially children will like it very much, as the child-Nicholas character related to them very well, it also instill Dharma and positive attribute to the children.

  39. Pema Thinley on Mar 10, 2015 at 10:17 pm

    Dear Rinppche,

    This is so profound to be able to believe and have trust in Dorje Shugden and no one can deny after having gone through it. Thank you so much rinpoche for tirelessly working for dispelling the traces of doubts of many people and hope no further crisis would arise. many teaching reach far as possible and may people understand it and have a peaceful practice ever.
    Thank you rinpoche, with folded hands, _/\_

I love the stories. Simply amazing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this graphic novel of Protector Dorje Shugden. I appreciate the effort put in by the editor, illustrator and writer to make this into pictorial format that easy to understand, but with concise and compact information based on HH Trijang Rinpoche’s great work “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protector”.

    From this pictorial novel people know better how Dorje Shugden arose as a great world peace protector. With understanding we know better about someone or something, then confusion and misinformation or misunderstanding will be lessen.

    This is something not only suitable for younger children to read, it even delightful to read and easy to grab the information and have understanding about the history and how Dorje Shugden come about, his role in preserving the precious teachings of Je Tsongkhapa. I love the graphic novel, thank you.

  48. Bradley Kassian on Mar 10, 2015 at 8:18 am

      This graphic novel is so nicely presented. It is easy to understand as the explanation is clear and the graphics are nice. It is ideal even for children and will help to clear doubts of many people as it is based on authentic source; from H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors”.

    The best gift that we can give to the children is to instill dharma in them.
    In this pilgrimage trip, Lew and family able to make offerings and do prayers together that created causes to gain the same qualities as per enlightened beings. Lew and Wei Theng decided to bring their children for this pilgrimage trip of Sri Lanka instead of other places is really inspiring and be a good example to many other parents to consider and make the same aspirations for their family.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Lew sharing this wonderful article. This has opened my eyes to the beauty and significance of Buddha’s relic of such as Buddha’s tooth and hair.

    How cruel! “Everything done to her is an attempt at removing her from instinct and desire and what she wants and needs.” This expression really caught my eyes because I realise humans are capable of imposing onto others what they have not felt or not capable of enduring. When the table is turned, it will be a different story completely. Thank you for this sharing. I am glad I am a vegetarian.

    This book “The Power of Habit” written by Charles Duhigg, ,have a useful advice about how to change at least some of our bad habits. Interesting review of this book…..We can develop the habits that can change our life and make everyday life possible for good or bad. Have positive thinking, focus on our goal , eliminate the non-essential and so forth to change ourselves. Many us have been trying desperately to break bad habits for a better. Charles Duhigg, an investigative reporter has did a research all through reading hundreds of scientific papers and interviewed many of the scientists has discovered interesting findings of how habit formation . It seem that by understanding the nature of habits we can change our habits. Scientific discoveries has found that why habits exist and how they can be changed. We must be the change that if we wish to see in the world. To progress in our lives it is impossible without change, and if we cannot change our minds set we cannot change anything.

Dr. Rahula was awarded several titles during his lifetime for his achievement. He had left a legacy knowledge and understanding of Buddhism in the western world as well as the locals.

    Amazing…… it really widen my knowledge to know more of this mysterious temple with fantastic stories behind it . The origin of the Temple of Sree Padmanabhaswamy is lost in antiquity which the locals referred to. This temple has been a fascination in India for many thousands of years and has concealed in mystery and fear having interesting legends surrounding the temple. Researchers discovered mysterious six vaults and unearthed mass treasures of golds etc.. It reminds me of Indiana Jones movie though. According to an ancient legend, there is an ancient curse on those who defile the sacred site and open those vaults which they did except vault B. Not until recently they managed to open after few attempts to open that particular vault .What was inside was amazing … an extra terrestrial unidentified flying object (UFO) and preserved mummies, and more has not been revealed so far. But I guess vault B contains even more incredible ancient treasures and even more surprising artifacts.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this amazing discovery.

Dorje Shugden, the special protector emanation of Manjushri is a fully enlightened being which will help us at all times when we truly trusted and have faiyh in him and our Guru. Its such a wonderful moment you and family able to witness the first inaugural trance by Dorje Shugden Oracle,at Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Compassion motivates people to go out of their way to help the physical, mental or emotional pains of another and themselves. Practice loving kindness and compassion at all times nor matter where. Researchers have confirmed that compassion and can be cultivated with training and practice in long run. Compassion training may also benefit people who have social anxiety. Compassion brings great warmth and kindness to all of us.
    Thank you or this sharing.

    Giving of Dharma is the highest form of generosity as per the Buddhist tenets. It is essentially the key to the doorway to liberation. Liberation from what? From the endless suffering of samsara, as depicted in the Four Noble Truth; birth, sick and death, as well as everything in between. If we cannot be the perfect vessel to give Dharma to others, the least we can do is to support such meritorious activities or organisation so that everyone will eventually be free from suffering through the practice of Dharma.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and PNP for this powerful sharing on what drives habits and how to change it. The formation of habit depicted in the story of Eugene Pauly is quite relatable; just imagine how we drive from home to office daily using the same route, autopilot. Most of the people will not change or try new routes. Most people will react to the reward of a shorter travelling time to induce that change of route. This whole 4-steps guide to transformation works, which is why Waze (of Google) is so popular when it comes to going from point A to point B. People just switch it on because it gives exactly these 4 steps in a nutshell, on the phone. ��

    Wonderful approach by former US president Bill Clinton to take up meditation as he knew the many benefits of it. After gone through few heart problems and surgeries, he has taken his exercise routine to learn Buddhist meditation. He even hired his own personal Buddhist monk to teach him how to meditate properly. Since then he has changed his lifestyle becoming vegan and he has been studying and practicing some forms of Buddhism too . He saw mindfulness as a cure to the stress of modern life and inspired few politicians to join him .

    The 14th Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism and the Tibetan people. In the past, Dalai Lamas have also served as the political leaders of Tibet. Because of his stand regarding the ban on Dorje Shugden , has cause disunity, hardship. suffering and so forth among practitioner and non-practitioners all over the globe. Many countries are then avoiding him in reality , treating him as any other common world leader. The global political scenario is amazingly changing in China’s favour. Despite the development, China’s control of Tibet still remains a sensitive issue. Chinese government is more polite and allow religious freedom.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

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

The Unknown

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

Here, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (left), one of the tutors of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, confers one of the many countless tantric initiations on the Dalai Lama (right). You can see a young Dalai Lama bowing in this picture with Trijang Rinpoche blessing him. Trijang Rinpoche is therefore undoubtedly the Dalai Lama’s tantric master. A great master at that.

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

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

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

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

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

The Huffington Post extensively covers the Dorje Shugden issue. I had no idea that this article was being written. I was not contacted, not asked for an interview or asked for any comments, and then it was published and my students alerted me to it. So it was a very, very pleasant and encouraging surprise to read such balanced coverage from such a reputable news website. You can read it here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=149806

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

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

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

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

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

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

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