His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche Lobsang Khyenrab Tenpai Wangchuk

To thousands of Gelugpas and Dorje Shugden practitioners all over the world, the name “Dagom Rinpoche” is a very familiar one. When the ban on Dorje Shugden was first enforced decades ago, His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was one of the first lamas who openly defied the Tibetan leadership. Whilst others were pressured into giving up their practice, Dagom Rinpoche refused to do so and insisted on continuing.

For his devotion to his gurus and commitment to his practice, Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche paid a very heavy price in the monastic community. The previous 12th Dagom Rinpoche was a scholar, writer, prolific teacher, yogi and a great tantric master who taught tirelessly and had thousands of students. After the Dorje Shugden ban, most of his monastery (Drepung Gomang Monastery) turned against him. The students he had so compassionately taught began to throw rocks at his house in Drepung. As a result of the harassment and violence, he moved to Nepal where he established a large Ladrang. It was in this Ladrang that my students and I had the merits to have audience with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche one final time before he entered parinirvana in 2007.

The last time I was able to have audience with my teacher His Eminence the 12th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche. This took place in his Ladrang in Nepal. Just two years later, Dagom Rinpoche entered parinirvana.

A very gentle, kind teacher, the 12th Dagom Rinpoche is one of the teachers I miss very much. It was amazing that the Tibetan leadership used to target him and try to silence him because he was so gentle, so kind and very learned. I am so glad His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche is back and will be powerful again in Tibet. No one can stop him in Tibet.

Amidst immense pomp and ceremony, thousands of Tibetans watched as the young reincarnation (tulku) of His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was enthroned as the 13th Dagom Rinpoche. According to the locals, there were at least 20,000 people in attendance. In this life, he has the name Lobsang Khyenrab Tenpai Wangchuk and was born in Lhorong County six years ago. I heard rumours that they had identified him some time ago but his identity was kept secret until earlier this year, for security reasons because he is a prominent Dorje Shugden lama.

I am so happy that the incarnation of one of my holy teachers has returned in perfect form, and has been recognised and enthroned as per tradition. Enjoy the pictures and videos of this enthronement ceremony, which was very well-attended by the sangha, various dignitaries and the locals. In the videos, you can see the Tibetans from far away offering khatas by throwing them in his direction, as a sign of respect. The attendance of the enthronement is a very good sign and auspicious omen for things to come. Not only for the lamas taking rebirth inside Tibet and having the ability to spread the lineage freely, but I really rejoice to see Tibetans still have so much faith in their lamas.

And please read below about the great works of Dagom Rinpoche’s previous incarnation, from whom I had the great honour to receive teachings from. It will help you to understand the calibre of this lama and the merits we needed for him to return to us. The fact he came back perfectly and easily is a sign that his students’ samaya with him is clean. And not only does Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s return show proof of reincarnation, but it is also evident that relying on Dorje Shugden has no negative impact on our rebirth. Contrary to claims by the Tibetan leadership, those who rely on Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector do not take rebirth in the three lower realms.

I offer my prayers for this incarnation’s long life and successful studies. May the attainments of his previous lives manifest swiftly in this incarnation, and his works fruition quickly. I am really so happy to see all of this.

Tsem Rinpoche

Born in 2010 in Lhorong County (Chamdo), His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche Lobsang Khyenrab Tenpai Wangchuk (གྲྭ་སྒོམ་རྡོ་རྗེ་འཆང་བློ་བཟང་མཁྱེན་རབ།) was recognised by Zonglo Chocktrul Rinpoche Jampa Khedrup (རྫོང་ལོ་ཆོགས་སྤྲུལ་བྱམས་པ་མཁས་སྒྲུབ།), the second highest lama of Jampa Ling Monastery in Chamdo.

In front of approximately 20,000 faithful practitioners and devotees, the young incarnation was enthroned on November 21, 2016. The enthronement ceremony took place in Lhorong County, Chamdo at Shodo Monastery (ལྷོ་རོང་རྫོང་ཤོ་མདོ་དགོན།). This is the ‘mother monastery’ of the previous Dagom Rinpoche; in other words, it is the monastery that the Dagom Rinpoche lineage of incarnations belongs to.

After his enthronement, the six-year-old incarnation will be educated in Jampa Ling Monastery. Also located in Chamdo, the monastery is home to over 1,300 monks. Below are some images and a video from the grand enthronement ceremony of His Eminence the 13th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche in Chamdo, Tibet.

Many people can see that in South India, the number of monks in the monasteries are starting to dwindle. The Chinese leadership are actively allowing Tibetan monks and lay people to return to Tibet where living conditions are better, and the monastic communities and institutions receive the funding and support they need. The Chinese authorities are even allowing gatherings and events of such scale and magnitude to be held, as long as the proper permits are applied for and all procedures are possible.

Hence the trend now is to return to Tibet as more monks wish to return to Tibet, seeing the conditions are better. Thus, as the monasteries in India shrink, the monasteries in Tibet continue to grow and swell in numbers as hundreds of monks return to China. In these pictures, we can see that it is just like the Tibet of old where people come out in droves to welcome His Eminence the 13th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche. Tens of thousands witness his enthronement, just like in the olden days.

The 12th Dagom Rinpoche

Source: www.dorjeshugden.org

The previous 12th Dagom Rinpoche was born in 1953 in Shota Lhosum, Tibet. When he was just six years old, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche recognised him as the 12th Dagom Rinpoche and the reincarnation of Ra Lotsawa, the “enlightened sorcerer” who battled 13 lamas to defend his teacher who gave him the practice of Vajrabhairava Yamantaka and Krishna Yamari. Dagom Rinpoche himself was known to have become one with Yamantaka, having accomplished the practice.

In 1959, the year he was recognised, Dagom Rinpoche left Tibet. He joined Drepung Gomang Monastery in Mundgod, India and for 16 years, he studied the major and minor Buddhist sciences. It was at Drepung Gomang Monastery that Dagom Rinpoche received his novice ordination in 1968. He was just nine years old. Then in 1974, when he was 21, he also received his Bhikshu vows (full monastic ordination) here.

Amongst Dagom Rinpoche’s illustrious teachers were Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabje Ling Rinpoche, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche and Yongzin Kunchok Gyatso. Under the tutelage of these great masters, Dagom Rinpoche completed all of his studies and in 1983, he was awarded the Geshe Lharampa degree. It is the highest degree available within the Tibetan monastic system and the equivalent of a PhD in Buddhist studies.

Four years later, in 1987, Dagom Rinpoche passed his tantric examinations. He then served as the proctor of the Gyume Tantric College in Hunsur, India for one year. From there he went on to teach various high lamas, sangha as well as laity at various venues.

    This is very auspicious indeed. Known to be as one with Yamantaka and a reincarnation of key Gelug Yamantaka lineage holder Ra Lotsawa, it just proves that Dorje Shugden cannot be other than an enlightened protector of Je Tsongkhapa’s precious teachings.

    This is because it would be illogical that someone who is one with Yamantaka who is none other than the destroyer of the powerful lord of death Yama (thereby destroying the cycle of death and rebirth), would be relying on or have to rely on any lower being.

    In addition, Yamantaka is also an aspect of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri and so is Dorje Shugden. In this case, Yamantaka would be the Yidam and Dorje Shugden the Protector, both aspects of Manjushri.

    Now Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche who never gave up his Dorje Shugden practice and had indeed spoken against the ban has reincarnated perfectly to be with us to continue his incarnation line’s precious work.

    I rejoice that there were so many people attending the enthronement of dharma king the 13th Dagom Rinpoche.

  2. Alice Tay on May 19, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    I rejoice that the incarnation of the H.E. 12th Dagom Rinpoche has returned in perfect form and there were at least 20,000 people attended to witness his enthronement.

    The returned of H.E.12th Dagom Rinpoche in perfect form show that his student’s samaya with him is clean. Most importantly is H.E.12th Dagom Rinpoche has strong faith in Dorje Shugden and there is no negative impact on his reincarnation. As such, the Tibetan leadership claimed that practice Dorje Shugden will harm us is illogical at all.

    May H.E. 13th Dagom Rinpoche stay healthy and long life. May his previous life’s attainments can manifest swiftly in this incarnation and continue his dharma works for the benefits of all sentient beings.

    Yamantaka has once again taken human form. How apt it is an emanation of Ra Lotsawa, is also a master of the Yamantaka practices. Tsem Rinpoche’s teachers all of them due to their efforts and study are accomplished and they mastery over their future rebirths.

    The huge turn out shows that Tibet, has much more religious freedom than the Tibetan communities in South India. Spiritual activities are on the rise in Tibet and will continue to do so for a long time.

  4. Echeah on Dec 26, 2016 at 1:46 am

    20,000 people attended the enthronement of a Dorje Shugden Lama. What does that say about the Tibetan people on the ground? Are the people the ones mostly against Dorje Shugden practice or is it the CTA? Are Dorje Shugden practitioners an insignificant “fringe and fundamental group out to undermine the Dalai Lama”? as alleged by the CTA in their latest video?

    Another example is, over a quarter of a million of Dorje Shugden followers in Tibet Celebrated H.E. Denma Gonsar Rinpoche’s Reincarnation’s Enthronement Ceremony that took place in Gonsar Temple, Kham, Tibet on July 31st, 2014. That is an indication of the extent of Dorje Shugden practitioners in Tibet against the backdrop of an estimated 4 million worldwide.

    There are perhaps 150,000 Tibetans in exile. It is apparent that Dorje Shugden practitioners in Tibet far out-number the total number of Tibetans in exile.

    That does not sound like an insignificant, unimportant practice that should be dismissed. It sounds more like the practitioners are continuing their practice despite the official ban by the CTA, probably because since they were given the practice by their Guru, they hold them steadfast and are not about to give them up regardless of the ban.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the great news on enthroment of the 13th Dagom Rinpoche.

    Dagom Rinpoche is a Dorje Shugden Lama and he has returned, being recognised and enthroned. If Dorje Shugden is a spirit, lama that do the practice will not be able to reincarnate back to this world and being recognised as a Tulku. This is an example proving that the claim that Dorje Shugden is a spirit is wrong. The reasons for the ban is invalid. May the bad be lifted ASAP.

    Rejoice for those that attended the enthronement. Such a great blessing.

  6. Doreen Teoh on Dec 1, 2016 at 10:34 pm

    It is such a great news to know that a reincarnation of the 13th Dagom Rinpoche is found and recognize. It was also great that the enthroning is celebrated with so much elaboration and attended by so many people, in such a peaceful and respectful way in Tibet. This has also shows that China is trying their best to give freedom of practice to Tibetans, as long as it done in proper manner and peaceful. I hope this such kind of events will be much more.

    Indeed, a very good sign and without doubt that Dorje Shugden’s Lama are genuine and has returned and continue to turn the wheel of dharma. What more evidence does one needs to know that Dorje Shugden is the Protector of our Tim

    Hope to see more Lama beings recognized in this manner in Tibet.

  7. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Nov 29, 2016 at 7:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the good news of the enthronement of His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche with full ritual ceremony carried out in Lhorong County, Chamdo at Shodo Monastery. As watching the short video clip when the 13th Dagom Rinpoche was being escorted into Shodo Monastery, thousands and thousands of people were welcoming the 13th Dagom Rinpoche with much excitement and trying to catch a glimpse of the young 13th Dagom Rinpoche. Some were even recording the auspicious moments with their mobile phones. This has clearly shown that the 13th Dagom Rinpoche, who is also a Dorje Shugden lama, receives the high respects from many Tibetans in Chamdo. I rejoice for all the Tibetans in Chamdo able to witness the auspicious ceremony of the enthronement of His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche.

    As there are many high lamas who practiced Dorje Shugden during their past reincarnations, have come back today as current reincarnations to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma, is sufficiently proven that praying and worshiping to Dorje Shugden will not cause us any harm or falling to lower realms. Thus, for those people who are still making bad accusations and negative comments about Dorje Shugden’s practice, should be awaken by now with the fact of all the young reincarnations of Dorje Shugden lamas have come back in perfect human form to spread the Dharma even further, especially in the West as well as inside the Tibet itself. We need Dorje Shugden as our Dharma Protector in this degenerate age to clear our obstacles ahead and provide conducive environment and conditions in our spiritual practice, especially for those who are living in the cities with many distractions and disturbance which can prevent our Dharma practice progress.

    May the ban of Dorje Shugden’s practice will be lifted soonest possible and let the peace and harmony be restored in the mind of all Shugden’s practitioners.

    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands,
    kin hoe

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    非常随喜札贡仁波切的转世已经回来了!!高僧大德们一次又一次转世回来是因为他们的菩提心使然, 让他们可以继续救度众生。

    前世札贡仁波切令人敬佩的地方就是他完全不会为了多杰雄登禁令而对他的上师依止心有丝毫动摇。 也奋身抵抗多杰雄登禁令。 虽然他因为如此而受到很多人攻击, 包括他自己的弟子。 不过这也无阻他继续回来救度众生。

    当然很重要的就是札贡仁波切的转世回来也是让无理的多杰雄登禁令显得更无理。 西藏行政中央一直说多杰雄登是邪灵, 不过怎么修行多杰雄登法门的大师们怎么都一个接一个回来了呢? 这也证明多杰雄登为邪灵之说只是无稽之谈。

    最后我也祝愿札贡仁波切早日学成, 救度众生。

    谢谢

    Wow! It’s great that such a High Lama has taken rebirth, especially someone who is such a great lineage holder of Dorje Shugden. I had the great fortune to have met this High Lama, his previous life when he was still alive in Nepal around 13 years ago. We visited his ladrang and he had an oracle from Ladakh take trance of Dorje Shugden.

    I recall when Dorje Shugden first entered the oracle, he strangled himself with a khata, re-enacting the passing of the High Lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen into the form of Dharma Protector we know today as Dorje Shugden. After Dorje Shugden had entered and did his vajra dance, he walked over to the throne of Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche and paid homage to him first and then to Tsem rinpoche.

    I recall receiving oral transmission from Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche on a number of mantras of the various Manjushri mantras, Migtsema and many others. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche gave us a Dharma talk and advice and told us that practicing Dharma is like being a white crow amongst black crows. We stand out and experience various differences and difficulties. His advice and teaching was easy and practical for all of us.

    After that, Rinpoche had us all personally meet Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche introduced and translated for us. Rinpoche told him that I would be writing Dharma books and this piqued his interest and he asked when I am going to start. After the short exchange, Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche recited some mantras and blew on me. Tsem Rinpoche later said I was very fortunate because he recited Yamantaka mantras to personally bless me to open my potential.

    Another great Dorje Shugden Lama is back.The reincarnation of H.E the 13th Dagom Rinpoche as Dharma continue to turn the wheel of Dharma and benefit all sentient beings. Great news that China is helping Tibetan refugees back to their homeland and allow such large scale enthroning event.

  11. Samfoonheei on Nov 24, 2016 at 7:20 pm

    Beautiful news indeed ….incarnation of.His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche is back . the six-year-old incarnation was recognised by Zonglo Chocktrul Rinpoche Jampa Khedrup . The enthronement was a historlical occasion that drew thousand of people to witness it.I do feel happy too as i am given a chance to look at those beautiful images as well as video too.The road to the monastery was lined with well-wishers, supporters and devotees ,sangha and lay people hoping to catch a glimpse of His Eminence the 13th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche. This show that more and more people rely on Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector and are practicing it. Hopefully the ban of Dorje Shugden will be lifted soon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post .

  12. Edwin Tan on Nov 24, 2016 at 4:20 pm

    Great news indeed with the enthronement of His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche.

    Tens of thousands of people attended, the turnout and the energy must be superb!

    Like the many comments written, the incorrect statement about praying to Lord Dorje Shugden will cause rebirth in the 3 lower realms is proven with the perfect reincarnation of HE 13th Dagom Rinpoche!

    The reincarnation and the enthronement is the blinding truth that praying and worshipping to Dorje Shugden does not cause harm nor cause rebirth in 3 lower realms!

    With so many people turning up and supporting and paying respects, it can be seen clearly that Dorje Shugden practice is not a minority group.

    I rejoice with all on such great news!

    Thank you Rinpoche

    “In these pictures, we can see that it is just like the Tibet of old where people come out in droves to welcome His Eminence the 13th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche. Tens of thousands witness his enthronement, just like in the olden days.” When I scroll to see these beautiful rejoicing images… I could not help to think in this same quote and really it is just wow looking at the amount of people gathered to welcome Dagom Rinpoche back!

    It sure looks like there is more growth and religious freedom in Tibet than there is in Dharamsala/India. I am sure like what this post has stated that there are more and more people returning to their homeland. Especially for monks since they are being given allowances from the government. At the end of the day, everyone wants progress. And if Tibetans wants to preserve their religion and culture, the only way to do so is to work with the current situation at hand, which is work with the Chinese gov. It would make their lives, livelihood and in general everything a lot easier… just follow their rules and use it to your advantage.

    Tibetans should stop hanging on to the fact that Tibet was invaded… many countries in this world today was invaded or has been invaded. All of Asia was colonised by the British and so many natives were killed and robed off their land in the American we so look-up-to. Why not ask these white man to go home and give American back to the natives again and shout human rights violations because it is and still is as we speak. But we don’t because as times passes, people work with it and work around it. They have to. So it would be best for the Tibetans to do so as well and to be more and more involve with the Chinese authorities so as to gain more influence to help their people. If you really want to help Tibetans in Tibet, do it the right way. Condemning the CCP and always shouting human rights issues is not going to help because let’s be real, Tibet is now part of China and leaders all over the world including the USA has accepted this stance.

    • Joy Kam on Nov 24, 2016 at 5:22 am

      Oh and one more thing I forgot to mentioned… NOTICE this… Here’s a nother GREAT Dorje Shugden lama who has returned. How come all these so called “spirit” worshipping Lamas are not in the lower realms but return as high Lamas?

  14. Vivian Ong on Nov 24, 2016 at 12:33 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this good news. More and more Shugden lamas are reincarnating back to continue to teach the Dharma. The reincarnation of H.E the 13th Dagom Rinpoche is a sign that those who rely on Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector do not take rebirth in the three lower realms. It is amazing to also see so many monks and the local people came to see the enthronement of H.E the 13th Dagom Rinpoche.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  15. Justin Cheah on Nov 24, 2016 at 12:08 am

    The return of Dagom Rinpoche will quash a lot of criticism about practising Dorje Shugden. Many might doubt before this especially neutrals, that Dorje Shugden is controversial and is an evil spirits. With reincarnations keep coming back and recognised, this will be solid proof for people to see it is OK to practice Dorje Shugden.

    It is great to see so many who turned up for the historic event and it is indeed a good sign for Tibetan Buddhism flourishing back in where it used to be, Tibet. Hope more and more will be doing so so that Tibet is back to where it used to be, full of Dharma and a hub for Tibetan Buddhism.

  16. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 23, 2016 at 11:32 pm

    A huge crowd of 20000 came to witness and celebrate the enthronement of the 13th Dagom Rinpoche in Tibet, China. The incarnation of the 12th Dagom Rinpoche has returned!

    This indeed proves those who reviled him for worshipping Shugden to be wrong. In keeping his commitment to continue practicing Shugden , a practice given by his Guru, the 12th Dagom Rinpoche showed his Guru Devotion, which he would not abandon, no matter how heavy a price he had to pay. Indeed, the price was heavy -The students he had so compassionately taught began to throw rocks at his house in Drepung. Most of the monks in Drepung Gomang Monastery(his monastery) had turned against him after the ban on Shugden practice was imposed. He entered parinirvana in exile from the monastery he loved. It was most unjust to treat this great and gentle scholar so badly.

    His return shows his compassion and earnest wish to contiune to teach and spread the Dharma. His return also debunks the fallacy that Shugden is a spirit. Dagom Rinpoche is one of many Shugden Lamas who have returned. Worshipping Shugden did not send them to the Three Lower Realms! I prostrate at the feet of these compassionate Shugden Lamas.

  17. Sock Wan on Nov 23, 2016 at 5:48 pm

    I rejoice for the return of Dagom Rinpoche. It is a mis-perception that practising Dorje Shugden will bring misfortune to the families and everything in your life. I have heard people saying “my parents (or lama) told me when you practice Dorje Shugden, he will give you everything you have asked for. But if you forget to pray to him for even one day, a lot of bad things will happen to you. For example, arguments in the family, accidents, sickness, etc”. Most of the bad things they have heard about Dorje Shugden is “hearsay”. Someone who has studied Buddhism well enough will know that what we are experiencing is due to the actions we have done before, could be an action we did in this life or an action we did in our previous lives. We cannot experience what we have not done. Like how Rinpoche explains to us, if you sow an apple seed, don’t expect an orange.

    When we propitiate Dorje Shugden, he is very efficient in removing our obstacles, helping us to avoid the condition where the ripening of our negative karma brings heavy negative consequence to us. Thus, our life becomes a smooth sailing. He is giving us protection from negative events or minimise the suffering from negative events. When we stop propitiate DS, we become vulnerable to our negative karmas as the protection is not there anymore. Therefore, the perception of Dorje Shugden harms the practitioners when they stop propitiating him is totally wrong. It also shows that some people’s karma is so bad that they cannot receive help or protection from DS due to their wrong views.

    If Dorje Shugden is a spirit, Lamas like Dagom Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, Zemey Rinpoche, etc would not have come back in perfect human form after they entered into clear light because propitiating a spirit is a violation to our refuge vows. People who propitiate a spirit will be reborn in lower realms but these Lamas come back.

    China is not the same like in 1959 anymore. The Chinese government understands the values of Buddhism in maintaining one’s morality, they do no suppress the practice of Buddhism, in fact they encourage it very much. As long as it is pure religion practice, Chinese government will not disallow unless people are making use of religion to create political instability in the country.

    This is such a truly great new of the year! Another great Dorje Shugden Lama is back. Even such a great lama H.E. the 13th Dagom Rinpoche chose to take rebirth back to his homeland in Tibet, China instead of India. By looking at the number of people that attended this enthronement ceremony, obviously we Dorje Shugden practitioners are not “minority” at all.

    It was mentioned by CTA that Dorje Shugden is an evil, He harmed Tibet and HHDL, whoever practice Dorje Shugden will go to hell, all Dorje Shugden practitioners are being paid by China to defame HHDL, hence Dorje Shugden was banned. BUT the enthronement of H.E. the 13th Dagom Rinpoche has proved that Dorje Shugden Lama are all enlightened lama who’s in control of their rebirth and choose to come back to teach and continue to spread Dorje Shugden lineage.

    Why is Dorje Shugden popular now? Whoever practice Dorje Shugden know how beneficial of this practice. More and more people read and learn hence get to know who is Dorje Shugden, In Tibet, China all can practice Dorje Shugden. no issue at all. In India, Dorje Shugden practitioners are discriminated by CTA and pro-HHDL people. CTA can do what they want to defame Dorje Shugden and Dorje Shugden Lamas, but truth speak louder then lie. I am sorry to say, the bad karma of created by CTA is catching u soon. Better repair the samaya before too late.

Which all of us are looking forward to.Thank you again Rinpoche for sharing.I truly rejoice for H.E 13th Dagom Rinpoche enthronement and rejoice for Rinpoche as one of Rinpoche’s Gurus has come back in perfect form. _/\_

    Tibetan Buddhism holds that there are two ways that someone can take rebirth after death. The first is to be reborn involuntarily, under the sway of ‘karma’, drawn back to life by destructive emotions and desires. This is the fate of most of us. A few, select others, through the power of compassion and prayer to benefit others, are believed to be able to choose their place and time of birth as well as their parents.
    The process of identifying these reincarnates, or “tulkus” as they are known, is a unique mixture of magic and politics.
    In a monastic society, where celibacy was the rule, it has served for more than 900 years not only to affirm the Buddhist teachings of a realised soul choosing the circumstances of their rebirth for the benefit of mankind; it also ensured a continuity of spiritual and political hierachy.
    It is an inexact science, practiced in different ways across the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

    Such a rejoice news to know 13th Dagon Rinpoche enthronement event in Tibet and 20,000 people came to greeting well coming Dorje Shugden lama incarnation is back. again it prove to many people how great this lama practising dharma and assist by Dorje Shugden.Is heart breaking to know Dorje Shugden lineage lama have to absorb unbelievable criticism and suffering when the Dorje Shugden ban first started. 12th Dagom Rinpoche have to force to leave monastery at India and stay at Nepal.

    4I’m fortunate have audience with His Holiness before and hear his teaching about Dorje Shugden previous incarnation life story in order to make Dorje Shugden previous incarnation thangka. With prayer i wish 13th Dagom Rinpoche will shine as the dharma king again before and continue pass Dorje Shugden lineage down to the next generation.

  22. Pastor Antoinette on Nov 23, 2016 at 7:53 am

    I am very happy to read this article. I did not know the 12th Dagom Rinpoche but I read from Rinpoche how kind and gentle his teacher was. It is painful to read what happened to him because of the ban and how his own students went against him. This is only because of the Dorje Shugden ban and all these students broke their samaya with their Guru, which is very bad.

    I rejoice for the good news about his reincarnation and now the enthronement. This gives hope for Dorje Shugden to arise as the enlightened Dharma Protector he is to the world.
    Please read how Dorje Shugden arose here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/dorje-shugden-illustrated-story-graphic-novel.html

    The pictures are very beautiful and colourful with the scenery from Tibet. The enthronement and the tens of thousands of people witnessing are powerful statement. Rejoice for Shodo Monastery, in Lhorong County, Chamdo Tibet.

    May we always be close to our Guru and to the Dharma.

    For people who have not known about reincarnation of high lamas, like me before knowing Tibeten Buddhism 1 year ago, they would just think that ‘Why does this cute little boy wearing so many layers of cloths & clothes, yellow snail hat and give teaching to groups and groups of monks & lay people from different age groups?’

    Rejoice that Dagom Rinpoche is back to turn the wheel of Dharma and benefit all sentient beings.

    Researches have been showing that incarnation is real and I truly believe that it does exist. Why not? Nowadays, people are still arguing the existence of Buddha, ghosts, god, and other creatures.

    Are they fake or we are not capable to discover and contact them? Do they really need to show themselves in front of us then only we are willing to believe their existence? The world is big and we are small, we can’t even know every single things that happening commonly around the world, then why should we expect to know things that we are not beyond our level?

    Rejoice that Dagom Rinpoche is back to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma and benefit all sentient beings.

    This article has already told a very strong point on whether Dorje Shugden is a Buddha or spirit.

    Many people out there has said that Dorje Shugden is a spirit, we cannot practice a spirit, we are harming Tibetans, and many more accusation, but the fact is, if Dorje Shugden is really as what they claim, a spirit, then how does the high lama like Dagom Rinpoche reincarnate back to this realm? If Dorje Shugden is breaking up Tibetan’s unity, then how to explain about the 20k people who gathered to celebrate Dagom Rinpoche’s enthronement.

    Dagom Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Pabongkha Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, all these are reincarnated high lamas life after life, and they are also practicing Dorje Shugden, and they, can never be wrong.

  26. June Kang on Nov 23, 2016 at 1:02 am

    This is a great news, Dorje Shugden Lama -Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche has took rebirth in perfect human form. This proved that ban Dorje Shugden practice due to he is evil is totally wrong.To say Dorje Shugden ia a evil spirit is to deny the validity of the natural law of cause and effect. And of course of most important factor of the reincarnation is also the guru devotion has shown by Dagom Rinpoche that never give up Dorje Shugden practice given by his guru even he has to pay a heavy price of continuing the practice. This guru devotion protect the lineage and pure Buddha teaching can be continued on.

    感恩仁波切分享这一遍殊胜和令人鼓舞的文章, 又一位修持多杰雄登护法的高僧大德又转世回来了 !
    20年以来一直不断争论关于多杰雄登的课题和禁令, 应该一早就可以解决了, 这是很铁证的见证, 修持多杰雄登护法的高僧们,每一位都跟着转世回来如尊贵的帕绷卡仁波切,尊贵的赤江仁波切还有这位刚认证第十三世转世回来的的高僧达贡仁波切,转世回来弘扬佛法,利益众生。如果多杰雄登真的是所说的”邪灵”, 修持多杰雄登护法的高僧们就破了他们的皈依戒,是不可能转世回来的。这事实和道理是每一位僧人都不会不知道。

    愿多杰雄登禁令可以尽快解除,让佛法可以更迅速的弘扬到世界每一个角落,更多因禁令受到伤害的人可以得到和平,一视同仁与慈悲的对待 !

    What a rejoicing news of the enthronement of the 13th Dagom Rinpoche. Every time I heard or read about the reincarnation of Shugden lama being enthrone it always shows that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being that by propitiating him with good samaya and faith one will be able to come back and continue their legacy. Despite of many rumor and accusation saying Dorje Shugden is devil but the result of all the Shugden Lama coming back and being unmistakably recognised by the high lama already an evident telling us that Dorje Shugden is enlightened being and the protector that we can count on just like any other high lama that has been practicing him.

    Amongst the many works of Dagom Rinpoche one of the great work that I have seen was the commissioned of Gelug Lineage tree thangka to include Dorje Shugden among the group of supramundane protectors. To me this thangka is complete and blessed with the protector of this time.

  29. Jace Chong on Nov 23, 2016 at 12:32 am

    Thanks Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing this wonderful news!!!

    It’s indeed a great enthronement not only recognizing the return of a great lama, it’s a celebration in the region to have someone great return and turn the Wheel of Dharma.

    For me, there’s one powerful message from this event is that there are people spreading rumors on practicing Dorje Shugden will take rebirth in the three lower realm, this living proof of His Eminence Dagom Rinpoche coming back has vanished this rumors completely. I believe the tulku system in Gelug tradition is very valid until today that not anyone can be simply recognized.

    May the current Dagom Rinpoche always turn the Wheel Of Dharma, be healthy and long life!

  30. Andrea Lai on Nov 23, 2016 at 12:24 am

    This article is interesting and it’s open up my eyes to get to know of this great tantric master, H.E.Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche who have very strong devotion and commitment to his guru and practices.
    It’s a very good news and new hopes for Dorje Shugden practitioners and the Tibetan. Rejoice!
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful news.May Dorje Shugden’s ban be lift ASAP.

    With folded palms,
    Andrea

  31. TekLee on Nov 23, 2016 at 12:19 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this good news. Wow… It is indeed a very good news for Gelugpa, Dorje Shugden practitioners and all of us. Again, it is clearly proved that fully rely on Dorje Shugden will not rebirth in 3 lower realm. In fact, H.E Dagom Rinpoche came back as a High Lama again. I feel very touching and proud to see so many followers attending H.E 13th Dagom Rinpoche enthronement. Plus, it is in Tibet! It suddenly gives me a very high hope and looking forward that the ban of Dorje Shugden will be released very very soon. Which all of us are looking forward to.
    Thank you again Rinpoche for sharing. I feel the happiness too. I truly rejoice for H.E 13th Dagom Rinpoche enthronement and rejoice for Rinpoche as one of Rinpoche’s Gurus has come back in perfect form. With folded hands. _/\_

  32. pammie yap on Nov 22, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    This is wonderful news! A powerful Dorje Shugden Lama has returned in a perfect form to spread Dorje Shugden’s practice once again, and this time in Tibet! How amazing it is to be able to spread the practice freely without discrimination nor segregation. A place where the Chinese government strongly support this practice.
    I was shocked to read the part where His students would actually want to harm Him because of His practice. How can that be? Especially that is their Guru, gave them so much Dharma and knowledge. I am shocked!

    From another point of view, if Dorje Shugden is ‘evil’ as claimed by HHDL’s supporters, then how did the 13th Dagom Rinpoche come about? He came back in perfect form, recognised and enthroned at such a young age. If they say that He is fake, then what about all the other Lamas who practiced and came back again? eg. H.H. Trijang Rinpoche whom HHDL recognised as His Guru, and all the other Lamas who practice Dorje Shugden (http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/they-were-not-wrong.html)

  33. Valentina Suhendra on Nov 22, 2016 at 9:58 pm

    I rejoice with the fact that Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche has come back to us in perfect human form. Due to the deeds of his previous lives, he commanded respect of a lot of people. It is amazing that more than 20,000 people came forward to witness his enthronement.

    In his previous life, Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was a prominent Dorje Shugden lama. The fact that he come back in perfect human form proof that Dorje Shugden is not a spirit, but an enlightened being and an emanation of Buddha of Wisdom Manjushri. because if one is praying to spirit, one create the cause to be reborn in the spirit realm. This is an unmistakable proof that Dorje Shugden is a Buddha, an enlightened being.

    Valentina

  34. HelenaC on Nov 22, 2016 at 6:41 pm

    Wow….what a wonderful news that the great master is back with perfect form and got enthroned. i can imagine how happy is Rinpoche as the connection he has with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche and with all the same teachers. Very touched!
    May All Dorje Shugden Lama be safe all time.

  35. Stella Cheang on Nov 22, 2016 at 6:22 pm

    Dorje Shugden lama comes back in perfect form and enthroned to continue turn the wheel of Dharma is an impeccable testament that (1) there is NOTHING wrong in Dorje Shugden practice, (2) Dorje Shugden practice is not evil, and (3) Dorje Shugden practice does not harm. Considering the fact that Dagom Rinpoche was among the first to defy the ban of Dorje Shugden but continue the practice, this incarnation is a further testament of the importance of Guru Devotion. Therefore it is no wonder that as many as twenty thousand lay and ordained people in Tibet, China attended the auspicious ceremony where the young reincarnation (tulku) of His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was enthroned as the 13th Dagom Rinpoche on Nov 21, 2016. Thanks to the Chinese government, ceremony like this where everyone will receive blessing, is now possible in Tibet, China. With notable events of the Tibetan Buddhism encouraged and supported by the Chinese government happening in Tibet, China, it just means that Buddha Dharma will flourish in Tibet, China. Thank you very much Rinpoche for this sharing.

  36. Fong on Nov 22, 2016 at 6:12 pm

    12th Dagom Rinpoche was recognized by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche who also recognized him as the reincarnation of Ra Lotsawa
    He was born in 1953 and left Tibet for India in 1959, the year he was recognised. He studied at Drepung Gomang Monastery in Mundgod, India and for 16 years.
    In 1968, he received his novice ordination at Drepung Gomang Monastery
    Then in 1974, when he was 21, he also received his Bhikshu vows.
    He completed all of his studies and in 1983 and was awarded the Geshe Lharampa degree.
    In 1987, Dagom Rinpoche passed his tantric examinations.
    From the timeline, we can see that the 12th Dagom Rinpoche was a great scholar, completing all his studies and completing his tantric examinations by age 34, a relatively young age.
    As a Dorje Shugden lama, the 13th Dagom Rinpoche’s recognition was kept a secret until the enthronement. And just like his previous incarnation, he is entering the monastery at age 6. He will be educated at Jampa Ling Monastery home to over 1,300 monks.
    The enthronement ceremony was held on November 21, 2016 in Lhorong County, Chamdo at Shodo Monastery (ལྷོ་རོང་རྫོང་ཤོ་མདོ་དགོན།). This is the ‘mother monastery’ of the previous Dagom Rinpoche. It was attended by approximately 20,000 faithful practitioners and devotees.
    That the reincarnation of 12th Dagom Rinpoche is back in perfect form shows the nature of Dorje Shugden, that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened deity and also that those propitiate him will not be reborn in the lower realms if they do not have the karma.

  37. Wong Suet Moi on Nov 22, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    This is so great to see another high lama whereby also Dorje Shugden practitioner whom incarnation has came back. It is a solid prove that there is no harm to practice Dorje Shugden but instead can gain enlightenment to benefit all.

    We used to claim ourselves from modern world. We only believe all the scientific proved issue and the rest claims as superstitious. With current social media can reach so fast and so many, I sincerely hope many people aware that life after dead is not a full stop but again more story to continue. It is really important for us to look into it. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this important articles with us.

  38. Jacinta Goh on Nov 22, 2016 at 12:16 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Really thank you for the article of this Great Master and the relevant links. It helps me to refreshed my memory for this Great Master. I wonder which is the correct year for the previous Master who has entered Parinirvana, 2007 or 2006? Rinpoche must be very very happy to know that Rinpoche’s Teacher has came back in perfect form. It is indeed very important for His Dharma works continue to flourish. May any necessary conducive conditions for His Dharma work arise swiftly and without much obstacles.

    With folded hands,
    Jacinta.

      Dear Jacinta,

      It is mentioned in the article that the 12th Dagom Rinpoche entered paranirvana in 2007.

    Indeed. Many people indulged in their own altered reality based on “what I don’t see therefore does not exist.” Which is really no difference from ostrich putting the head in the sand, especially when it comes to compassionate living. While everyone proud themselves as law abiding citizen, our daily affair actually involves the murdering and torturing of other living beings. If you are not a vegan, your everyday life involve causing harm through your purchasing power on animals for their meat, fur, leather, as a tester for your cosmetic, skin care, medicine and many more. Is it too much for you to stop eating meat just so that less animals are being harmed and murdered every year? Something to think about and act on.

    Tina Turner one of the most energetic and vocally-magnificent artists . Born Christian had sought solace in reciting Buddhist mantra that changed her life. An ancient and mystical Buddhist chant to connect to a higher power beyond her human understanding that has changed her and lifting the load of the pressure off in her life . Incredible… She is so powerful and a deeply spiritual woman ,inspiring bringing millions of people across the world of her mantras and Buddhist teachings in music. I do enjoyed listening to her powerful voice and chanting.

When it comes to lending a helping hand, surprising that animals truly go above and beyond. No one will ever thought of that. Animals have feelings and thoughts like human. Scientist have proven that all kind of animals seem to be capable of acts of kindness like us .Give them a chance, do not hurt them.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your meaningful thoughts with us.
    Its more of an advice on love and relationships that can last. Relationship is not about your similarities, it’s about on how you workout and adjust in your differences. Its more of give and take. In every relationship arguments are present both must clarify uncertainties and make both partners learn from mistakes. All relationships are important for our happiness and well-being.
    (In all relationships honesty is most important. If you are honest, your relationship will grow stronger and better with time.)
    I like this quote which tell us to be honest with each other. Honesty is a key component of a healthy relationship, not only because it helps us avoid harmful breaches of trust. Being truthful, doing the right thing and not telling lies and connecting with others in an honest way is vital.
    Thanks again for sharing this timeless pieces of advic

Their plight of suffering and poor breeding ground were hard to make it to headlines because of the size of the industry! Many people choose to continue being someone who refuse to see the truth that these birds suffered tremendously so that people can put cheap chicken in their mouth, every single day! Please, be a vegetarian today, stop being the cause of suffering for these harmless brings.

    Very define explanation about Rosaries or malas. Malas or prayer beads are ancient tools for reciting prayers and mantras during devotion and meditation rituals. Malas are ubiquitous in Tibetan Buddhist communities all over the world, wrapped around wrists or dangling from fingers. I am glad I found these beautiful article which give me a better understanding of it. Before this I only knew it acted as counter and the extra 8 malas for the mistakes, mispronounced, and for whatever we have missed.

    Modern and yet rustic design of Dukkar Apartment in Kechara Forest Retreat. It was a great job done by the Kecharian who built this design. I have never thought that containers can be built into rooms. Interesting concept.

    Rinpoche’s admiration for Mother Teresa and her untiring compassionate work is beyond words. I have heard it from Rinpoche’s youtube teachings and read it from Rinpoche’s blog many times. Mother Teresa was raised as a Cathoilic but she discovered her life purpose as young as 12 years old. Her devotion to help the poorest of the poor during the 1930s through out to 1950s in India must be sheer hardship. Her success because of her extraodrinary faith and devotion is truly an inspiration. Thank you, Rinpoche, for this sharing.

    What beautiful enlightened words from Goddesss Maching Labdron! It is so fortunate for me to come across this post! Maching Labdron is a renowned Tibetan female tantric master from the 11th Century. She is known for being the yogini who originated the lineages of Chöd practice that is part of the core tradition today. Thank you, Rinpoche, for this very powerful sharing!

    In my humble opinion, these great words of the Taoist Wisdom work hand in hand with Buddhist Wisdom that talks about letting go of our fixated projection and expectation on how things are. Because of our limited exposure, we only see things our way and out of ignorance, we refuse to see it in any other way. This becomes the cause of world’s many misdemeanors that lead to unmistakable sufferings! There is always two sides to a coin, isn’t it? it’s not hard to think it through.

    Very rarely we hear tributes to the female gender, this is truly refreshing. Thank you, Rinpoche, for this ecomium about the female forces behind the success of Kechara. May this unyielding force continue to bring Kechara to new heights!

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

The Unknown

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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)

Paying hommage to Loma Gyoma in Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong. "As the emanation of Tara, Loma Gyonma is regarded as Lhamo Rithrodma, the 20th Tara as mentioned in the “Praise to the Twenty One Taras”. The praise to Lhamo Rithrodma states that her right eye emits blazing rays of light that burns away all the lords of diseases and epidemics." P. Antoinette - From the article Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyoma arrives to KFR! http://bit.ly/2FJyp0g
