The Prophecy of the 16th Karmapa

His Holiness the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, previous head of the Karma Kagyu lineage.

In 1976, His Holiness the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje graced the opening of Urgyen Rinpoche’s new monastery called Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling in Nepal and gave a prophetic proclamation. This Nyingma monastery was built on a farmland just north of the ancient and legendary Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu.

The founder of the monastery, Urgyen Rinpoche is a Buddhist master of the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions and hence the monastery follows the same lineages. This monastery was built under the guidance and direction of the 16th Karmapa. The King of Nepal, His Majesty King Birendra Bir Bikram Shah also graced the opening of the monastery. After the opening ceremonies were completed, the Karmapa appointed 24-year old Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche as the abbot of the new monastery. During the opening, the Karmapa presided over elaborate consecration ceremonies to bless the monastery.

According to an account in Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s collected works (sungbum), the Karmapa came across a statue of Dorje Drolo during an inspection of the new monastery. Dorje Drolo is a wrathful emanation of Guru Rinpoche. This particular image was pressing down upon a smaller figure of a monk with a round hat, under his feet, that resembled the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden. The Karmapa stood in the presence of the statue for a while and then pointed at the statue and asked, “Who is the person that ask for this statue to be made? This isn’t Nyingma nor Sakya, certainly not Gelug and not Kagyu either. I didn’t ask for it to be made! This is not one of the deities you can rely on…”

“Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).”

– His Holiness 16th Karmapa

The Karmapa was speaking to a line of abbots and masters but nobody came forward to own up. So, the Karmapa ordered for the statue to be removed immediately. A man came up with an axe and a shovel to remove the image. The Lamas who were present would definitely remember this incident and in the account, a seventy-five year old man from Chamdo by the name of Samcho had witnessed this.

This prophecy by His Holiness Karmapa is an unusual one because he had no known history or prior relations to the practice of Dorje Shugden. The Karmapa himself is the head of Karma Kagyu and there is no known history between the Karma Kagyu and the practice of Dorje Shugden either. The prophecy could be indicating that when the political issues surrounding the practice ceases to be, there will be future growth and proliferation of Dorje Shugden’s practice. Karmapa was known for his powerful clairvoyance. When he made such a prediction, it will come true. The 16th Karmapa and the current one has never made one negative comment about Dorje Shugden ever. 

The original and authentic depictions of Dorje Drolo, the wrathful emanation of Guru Rinpoche, did not have him stepping on a monk who is suppose to be Dorje Shugden. The phenomena of portraying Dorje Shugden under Dorje Drolo is a something concocted and offensive to many people. This does not create religious harmony.

His Holiness Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was a great scholar from Drepung Gomang Monastery. He was a powerful writer and tantric master who had received innumerable lineages, practices and commentaries. He has left behind many acclaimed writings in the Gelug world on the various subjects of Sutra and Tantra.

    I remember attending a Kagyu centre where they invoked their protector Dorje Legpa to grind to dust the enemies of the Kagyu order, upon them discovering that I was a Dorje Shugden practitioner, I was asked to leave and never come back. This does not seem in keeping with the great friendship that Trijang Rinpoche and 16th Karmapa had. I hope this was just a one off isolated example. I’ve never been made unwelcome at Theravada Temples or anywhere else because of this – it makes you wonder

    Dear friends, I don’t believe that the late Karmapa endorsed Dorje Shugden. But apart of that one slight mistake: The enthroement of the 17th Karmapa Thaye Dorje took place in the KIBI, not in Rumtek, in March 1994.

    • Karma Yeshe on Oct 9, 2016 at 6:02 am

      Dear Gerd,

      I respect your opinion. But it is not hard to believe someone like Karmapa would endorse Dorje Shugden. Why not?

      1. The greatest proponent of Dorje Shugden was His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the root guru of 14th Dalai Lama and hundreds of other great lamas. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and 16th Karmapa were life long friends. Very close and visited each other always. They knew of each other’s practice and shared information and shared dharma. So definitely Karmapa would have known the famous practice of Dorje Shugden of such a high profile lama like Trijang Rinpoche. If 16th Karmapa did not approve, he would not be good friends with Trijang Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche did not need the approval of 16th Karmapa, but hypothetically Karmapa would not visit with Trijang Rinpoche if he didn’t like the lama and his practices.

      2. Karmapa’s previous incarnation as well as the current one (both of them) have never said one negative word or comment against Dorje Shugden. Since Karmapa is the head of Karma Kagyu, you would think he would say something to ‘protect’ the followers of his lineage? He has never said or written anything against Dorje Shugden and this is very important point to understand. It has great meaning. Remember, during the time of the 16th Karmapa, the 14th Dalai Lama was still practicing Dorje Shugden. There is even a prayer to Shugden composed by 14th Dalai Lama:

      A Propitiation of Mighty Gyalchen Dorje Shugden, Protector of Conqueror Manjusri Tsongkhapa’s Teachings

      By the Supreme Victor, the Great 14th Dalai Lama

      HUM

      Glory of the wisdom, compassion and power of infinite Buddhas
      Miraculously powerful protector of Manjusri Tsongkhapa’s Teachings
      Arisen as a lord of all wrathful worldly hosts
      Come from the abodes of Tushita, Kechara (Paradise or pure land), and so forth!

      Prostrating with devotion of body, speech, and mind
      I confess all mistakes and faults in which
      Out of delusion, I have contradicted your holy mind:
      Accept with forbearance and show your smiling face!

      Arising from the sport of non-dual bliss and void
      Are offerings and torma of flesh and blood heaped like a mountain
      First portions of milk, yogurt, beer and tea swirling like the ocean
      Auspicious signs and substances and various animals
      Peaceful and wrathful ornaments, enemy-destroying weapons and armor
      Amassed samaya substances, outer, inner, and secret, without exception!

      Having fulfilled your heart commitment and purified degeneration
      By making these actually arranged and visualized offerings
      Increase Lozang the Victorious One’s Teachings
      And the life span and activities of the Teachings’ upholders!
      Further the happiness of beings in the Gaden [Podrang] dominion!

      Especially pacify all harm to us, the yogis and entourages
      That arises because of previous karma and immediate conditions
      And spontaneously accomplish, just as we wish
      All good things, both spiritual and temporal!

      Grind to dust without remainder
      Enemy hordes that think and act perversely
      Towards the teachings and lay and ordained people
      With potent, accurate, powerful great vajra fire!

      Especially, cause the saffron-clad community of Dungkar Monastery
      Brightly beautiful in bonds of pure morality
      To soar the path of immortal liberation
      On unified wings of Sutra and Tantra!

      In brief, we enthrone you, O Deity, as the supreme
      Collected nature of all Gurus and Protective Deities!
      From densely gathered clouds of the four activities
      Pour down a cool rain of the two siddhis!

      (source: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/the-14th-dalai-lamas-prayer-to-dorje-shugden.html )

      These days the exiled Tibetan government in exile (Dharamsala) ‘advises’ people to stay away from all those who practice Dorje Shugden. Do not associate with them on a spiritual or secular level. Children of Dorje Shugden practitioners are removed from Tibetan schools. Ill Dorje Shugden people may not visit Tibetan hospitals. Total segregation. But Karmapa previous and current does not avoid or ban Dorje Shugden people to attend his their teachings.

      3. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche who composed the text stating what 16th Karmapa did in Nepal was a close and very revered student of the previous Trijang Rinpoche. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was a lama of a few words, very saintly and a great scholar. He would have no reason to write something decades ago that is not accurate. He would have researched and spoken to Trijang Rinpoche for sure. For sure Trijang Rinpoche and Karmapa would have spoken about the subject.

      4. Thaye Dorje being enthroned as the Karmapa is not believed to be the real Karmapa. So some believe Orgyen Trinley is not the real Karmapa. Everything has their belief. Some believe holy Dorje Shugden is a Buddha and some don’t. Some believe Buddhism/Christianity/Hinduism/etc are excellent and some do not believe in they are. The world is full of opinions. The bottom line is Dorje Shugden like anything else will be liked by some and unliked by some and that does not matter. But you have no evidence Karmapa did not ‘endorse’ Dorje Shugden. But I can tell you for sure, Karmapa never said one negative word/writing against Dorje Shugden and that is very powerful inherent evidence in itself. The bigger issue is which is the real Karmapa? Tibetans always have one intrigue, confusion and talks. Better to give everyone religious freedom to practice without any criticism. Remember the Tibetan Govt in exile segregates Dorje Shugden people away. They also do not advise people to visit or get teachings from Thaye Dorje. Thaye Dorje followers are also seen as not cooperating with the Dalai Lama and his choice of Orgyen Trinley. You see in Tibetan society, there is a lot of segregation and bias. You must follow their decisions or you are thrown out.

      Below are pictures of Trijang Rinpoche with Karmapa on the many occasions their friendship caused them to meet with each other.

      I wish you well and I often visit this blog as it has much interesting reading.

      Dear Gerd,
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

      The source of the article was Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s collected works (sungbum), which the original Tibetan text is included in the article. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was a great scholar and known to not care or get involved in any politics. Hence, the reason Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche recorded this down must be that it has great spiritual significance.

      His Holiness the 16th Karmapa said that “Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).” Perhaps His Holiness is not “endorsing” Dorje Shugden, but merely stating the facts (his prediction) that “you” (those present at that time, including many monks) and many more will have to rely on Dorje Shugden in the future.

      It is not hard to believe that the 16th Karmapa would endorse Dorje Shugden. Both the 5th Dalai Lama and the 14th Dalai Lama have written prayers to Dorje Shugden.

      5th Dalai Lama: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/the-fifth-dalai-lama-dorje-shugden-%e0%bc%a7%e0%bd%82%e0%bd%bc%e0%bd%84%e0%bc%8b%e0%bd%a6%e0%bc%8b%e0%bd%a3%e0%be%94%e0%bc%8b%e0%bd%94%e0%bc%8b%e0%bd%86%e0%bd%ba%e0%bd%93%e0%bc%8b%e0%bd%94.html

      14th Dalai Lama: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-fourteenth-dalai-lama-dorje-shugden.html

      The Nyingma Tantra Rinchen Nadun recognises that Dorje Shugden was an emanation of Chenrezig/ Avalokiteshvara.

      Before Dorje Shugden was widely practised in Gelugpa tradition, he was enthroned as a protector of the Sakya tradition. Sakya reliance on Dorje Shugden began with the 30th Sakya Trizin Sonam Rinchen (1705 – 1741) who enthroned and worshipped Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector. The supreme throneholder of Sakya school of Buddhism, Sonam Rinchen enthroned Dorje Shugden as one of the protectors of Sakya.

      I hope you will find the information above beneficial and understand more about Dorje Shugden, which we have quoted relevant information from traditional sources.

    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!

    Dagom Rinpoche is one with Yamantaka and HH Karmapa is predicted to be a future buddha. Such beings do not have anything to gain by misleading.
    The fact that the 16th Karmapa can say that about Dorje Shudgen, shows Dorje Shugden is not a worldly protector that only protects practitioners/dharma from one sect.

  5. Pastor KH Ng on Jul 29, 2016 at 11:50 pm

    Amazing……..! The 16th Karmapa’s prophecy,

    “in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden)”,

    This is powerful.

    I have seen such a statue in a chapel in Nepal. I think it is still there. It is sad that some people do not follow the advise of the Karmapa. The statue implies the superiority of one lineage over another and also implies that others’ Gurus are wrong and have no attainments. This type of thoughts reflects the degenerate times.

  6. NgJesvin on Jun 24, 2016 at 10:20 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

    The prophecy given by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa clearly affirmed that Dorje Shugden is a deity that we can rely on.

    I would like to thank Rinpoche for introducing this Dharma Protector to us. May Dorje Shugden ban be lifted and may more and more people receive the blessing from Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden.

    Humbly with hand folded,
    NgJesvin

    “Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).” – His Holiness 16th Karmapa

    This one sentence says a lot. For one, seeing the Karmapa spoke in the presence of Karma Kagyus, he is indirectly saying that even the Karma Kagyus will need to rely on Dorje Shugden shows that DS is NOT sectarian.

    Dorje Shugden was again prophecised to be the protector of our time by Lamas of high caliber, clairvoyance and who do not even practice DS. With so many Lamas saying this, the prophecy cannot be made up.

  9. Pastor David Lai on Apr 3, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    This is just incredibly ground breaking because this is from the famous 16th Karmapa. It’s incredible that he said that and I hope his prophecy would come to pass very quickly. I have read about this a long time ago and I am glad to read more extensively here. I think that not many people know this and I wonder whether there is any records within the Karma Kagyu tradition itself.

    It would be interesting if they did record this down but I doubt it. They are not so concern with the deities and protectors of other traditions since it doesn’t really concern them. However, I wonder what are the implications when this prophecy does come to pass. I wonder if it meant that Dorje Shugden would one day be practiced by all 4 schools of Tibetan Buddhism because he is so effective. I am sure that can happen once the ban is down. All we need is the head or lineageholders of each tradition to compose prayers to Dorje Shugden.

    Actually, I am so much as concern about that but I would very much like to see his practice become widespread because he would be very beneficial for all practitioners. Many people would enter the Dharma and many already in Dharma would have their faith reaffirmed.

    感谢仁波切在此分享非常珍贵的博文。因为此博文再次的证明多杰雄登护法除了在格鲁派,噶举派的领导者,至尊第 16 世噶玛巴,也曾经说过我们将来会需要多杰雄登护法。

    博文里有提到,至尊第 16 世噶玛巴非常著名于他的神通能力。这代表,他所做的预测都会实现。

    至尊第 16 世噶玛巴是一个非常仔细、细心和观察力非常强的高证悟者。因为,噶玛巴尊者当时看到Dorje Drolo的脚底有一位带着圆帽的出家人(貌似多杰雄登),就立刻叫人马上移开此佛像。噶玛巴尊者还预言说:“虽然时间有点早,未来你们将会需要这位护法神(多杰雄登)。” 除此,第16世和现世的噶玛巴也不曾对多杰雄登做过任何负面的评语。

    除了以上的证明,在此与大家分享上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切与其他写作的成员收集了205 名大师、格西、大成就者等,与多杰雄登有着密切的联系与修持法。

  11. Lester Lim on Mar 26, 2016 at 5:42 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, what 16th Karmapa said about the DS is indeed a revelation. It spurred me to research further. Soon I found out that there is another version claiming Trijang Rinpoche to have covered image of DS to avoid a disapproving Karmapa. Ultimately, the first version triumphs because it was documented by an official Tibetan scribe. My point is, the DS controversy being extremely complex and layered, with interrelated political, cultural and religious factors at play, it is extremely difficult for the layperson to comprehend correctly. Too many heresay and personal opinions, not least from HHDL. Proponents and opponents choose to see the issue strictly from their own perspective, resulting in painful stalemates leading true spiritual seekers nowhere. Nevertheless, I believe that understanding with objectivity will nullify any reasons put forth to ban the practice. These reasons in turn, if we were to recall, are largely political and premised upon faith in the HHDL institution. Most Buddhists are interested in spiritual salvation, not the Tibetan cause. Knowing the DS issue in its entirety will therefore be helpful. As such, I humbly suggest that perhaps a concept map (as attached), live or not, is created, to welcome everyone, for or against DS, to contribute. Or maybe the knowledgeable in KH could generate possible arguments from both sides. In fact, there is no need to arbitrate. Let logic, for and against, speaks. The truth shall set the meritorious free. _/\_

      Dear Lester,
      Thank you for your comments. From what you mentioned, it showed that you really took the time to read, understand and have good grasp of what you read. Thank you also for the good suggestion of the concept map. To further your understanding, please have a look at this series of Dorje Shugden teaching videos, I hope you will find them helpful: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugden-teaching-videos.html

      Hi Lester, I like the chart you did, shows you’re thinking about the issue and how you’re thinking. If you haven’t already had the opportunity, can I suggest you read this post too? I think you may find it interesting: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/can-tibetan-lamas-make-mistakes.html

    • Valentina Suhendra on Mar 26, 2016 at 9:47 pm

      Dear Lester

      Thank you for your comment. I agree with you that most Buddhists are more interested in spiritual salvation rather than Tibetan cause. At the end of the day, the main reasons that we are attracted to Buddhism in the first place are the logic and the answer of our deepest questions, and not the politics.

      There were many witnesses when Karmapa the 16th said “Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity.” The 16th Karmapa was expressing his displeasure because the iconography of Dorje Drolo was not depicted accurately. Before the DS controversy, there were no Nyingma protector depicted as stepping upon Dorje Shugden. In addition to witness testimony, this event was recorded in Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s Sungbum (collected works).

      I understand that you found another account that said this is not the case although the source of that account is doubtful. But for the sake of the arguments pros and cons, I have created a concept chart to reason why the another account that Trijang Rinpoche covered DS image to prevent the 16th Karmapa displeasure does not make sense.

        Thanks all for the suggested posts. The concept map I have attached is just an example. If fully elaborated, it could be very extensive. For example, there are very thorough studies done on the historical veracity of DS, stating that he is ultimately a Gyalpo. There is also another line of argument that goes beyond religion, claiming that whether or not DS is spiritually beneficial, lifting of the ban would have seriously undermined the Tibetan institutions, thus dealing a perhaps fatal blow to all four schools of Vajrayana, given the fact that each already has powerful representative/s, real or perceptual, coming out to urge Buddhists to heed HHDL advice. In other words, mistake or not, this is a path of no return. These are just two arguments amongst several others. Anyway, in case you misunderstand, I have faith in DS and Setrap, this discussion is merely for the benefit of those who wish to know more.

          And Valentina, I like your mind map. Though it lacks rebuttal, it could be a major subset of the larger picture. Finally, I believe that karma ultimately rules. Everyone including HHDL is just playing along a completed script. Wish you all the best !

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this important prophecy given by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje back in 1976. With the prophecy given by a highly respected spiritual leader, we can 100% rely on Dorje Shugden in our spiritual practice and there should be no second thought about the accuracy of this prophecy. Many people have gained progress in their spiritual development by engaging in Dorje Shugden practice which can be observed from their testimonials published in the public.

    May the ban of Dorje Shugden will be immediately stopped to end the sufferings endured by Dorje Shugden’s practitioners.

    With folded hands,
    kin hoe

    It is very comforting to learn that high lama from other lineage; i.e. His Holiness the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje respects the spiritual practice of another lineage. This set good examples for all of us.

    It is also noteworthy to mention that His Holiness the 16th Karmapa recognized Dorje Shugden as a deity we certain CAN rely on in times to come. It is important for us to continue to request for the Shugden ban to be lifted so that more people can benefit from the practice of Dorje Shugden, as prophesized by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this uplifting blogpost with us.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

    H.H the 16th Karmapa is a lama of such high calibre, his prophecy would have been nothing but the truth. The fact that the 16th Karmapa has nothing linked with the Dorje Shudgen practice, he remains neutral on both sides. His Holiness did not mention anything negative about Dorje Shudgen‘s practice but instead made such a prophecy. His Holiness has foreseen something in the future that is actually coming near to the truth. Many lamas are coming out to speak the truth. Many are starting to rely on this Dharma Protector and have experienced the benefits. May the Dorje Shudgen ban be lifted soonest!

  15. Jenny on Mar 14, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    Thank you for this most interesting account. Am wondering, just above the main prophecy it says that HH Karmapa said: “This is not one of the deities you can’t rely on…” please can you check if there is a typo as the meaning as it is keyboarded in your article is unclear. Should it rather say: “This is not one of the deities you can rely on” instead of can’t? Thank you again.

    • Pastor Niral Patel on Mar 14, 2016 at 11:59 pm

      Jenny, you are right, there was a typo in the text. It has been corrected. Thank you very much for spotting this!

  16. nicholas on Mar 14, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    The 16th Karmapa was a great master who demonstrated intuitive wisdom, joy, and loving kindness, his compassionate activity for others being beyond words or concepts. He was such a highly respected teacher across the Himalayas — including to the royal families of Sikkim and Bhutan — that masters of the other lineages would also call upon him for help and advice.

    Such a great master able to forsee the need of Dorje Shugden in future to benefit more people is not a coincidence but a truly fact from an enlightened mind. This is one of the great evident how an enlightened mind from different lineage view Dorje Shugden and request many of his students to respect him. What else needed to say more.

    For whatever reason we shouldn’t put down any other deity, practices or belief and we should respect them even if we disagree. We live in this world with so many different believe and as long as the believe encourage compassion it’s a great practice for everyone.

  17. Kelly Inman on Mar 14, 2016 at 10:18 am

    I first took the bodhisattva vow with the 17th Karmapa, Thaye Dorje, back toward the turn of the millennium; I later came to the NKT and have become a Dorje Shugden practitioner. I still have a great deal of devotion for Karmapa, and hope that the 16th Karmapa’s prophecy is coming true now, and that it is not too early anymore :). I rely on Dorje Shugden for everything as he is a perfect Wisdom Buddha. Karmapa chenno.

  18. Datuk May on Mar 13, 2016 at 4:02 pm

    The 16th Karmapa was a great Buddhist Practitioner and at His level would be highly attained and clairvoyant. A lama of HH 16th Karmapa’s level, his prophecies will definitely be fulfilled.

    I rejoice to read of this article which affirms my belief that Dorje Shugden is a Buddha and that propitiating Him will be the mainstream of Buddhism.

    However, 40 years have passed since this prophecy and it is my sincere wish that the CTA with directive from HH Dalai Lama will remove the Ban.

  19. Chris Chong on Mar 13, 2016 at 1:38 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this prophecy by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa dated back to 30 years ago.

    I have learnt from this post that the Karmapa is the head of Karma Kagyu. A lama of his calibre would have very high attainments and have abilities like clairvoyance. According to the post, there is no history of Karma Kagyu practicing Dorje Shugden. So, it is safe to say that the Karmapa will not be biased when it comes to Dorje Shugden practice.

    When His Holiness thr 16th Karmapa ordered the inaccurate Dorje Drolo statue to be removed, he also mentioned that the deity(Dorje Shugden) which is being stepped on by the inaccurate Dorje Drolo statue is not someone that we cannot rely on. He also mentioned that we would need to rely on that deity(Dorje Shugden) when the time comes.

    This means that His Holiness the 16th Karmapa say that we can rely on Dorje Shugden and we will certainly need to rely on him when the time comes. There is no reason for His Holiness the 16th Karmapa to be bias towards Dorje Shugden because their linage doensn’t practice his practise. Hence, what he said would be the truth and fair.

    This shows that we can rely on Dorje Shugden and he is not an evil spirit. He is a fully enlightened buddha.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    • Pastor Niral Patel on Mar 13, 2016 at 2:54 am

      Chris,

      You are right about this. Here we have one of the greatest practitioners of the recent past, and supreme head of the Karma Kagyu, His Holiness 16th Karma prophesising that we will need to rely on Dorje Shugden.

      Dorje Drolo, as the wrathful emanation of Guru Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden, as the emanation of Manjushri can both be relied on. They both have an enlightened nature, and there is an unbroken lineage, which shows us there is a basis to both practices. They are both very powerful practices that can aid our spiritual journey towards enlightenment and bestow the blessings of Guru Rinpoche and Manjushri respectively.

      However, the form of Dorje Drolo stepping on Dorje Shugden is something made up, there is no lineage for this. Therefore there is no basis for the practice of this form of Dorje Drolo and it is not something any genuine practitioner can rely on.

  20. JP on Mar 13, 2016 at 1:03 am

    In my opinion, a true spiritual practitioner respects other’s spiritual practices and never talk negatively about them. HH The 16th Karmapa is a a perfect example of this.

    This account also shows that “politics” do exist even within the monastery as not all monks are attained and highly realized. This is the nature of Samsara and we can never escape it as long as we are in Samsara.

    Last but not least, HH’s prophecy of Dorje Shugden shows that Dorje Shugden is not a harmful spirit. HH is a highly realized being and no harmful spirit can disguise itself from HH. Hence, this is another proof that negative allegations of Dorje Shugden is not true!

    Thank you Rinpoche for this contest to create awareness on the plight of our dinner, before they ended up on our plate. The meat that ended up on our dinner plates are not some chemically produced lifeless “thing”. They are animals who have feelings, can feel pain and suffer a great deal under unhygienic environment, probably able to feel more than us for that matter. This is a fact. We should not ignore it and blindfold our conscious by pretending that the meat we are consuming led a happy life and died peacefully before they ended up on our plate. Do our part by contributing to less suffering for the animals. Go vegetarian.

    The Tibetan government in exile in North India (CTA) has in their laws and charters that if you practice Dorje Shugden as your spiritual path:

    1. You are not allowed in Tibetan hospitals.
    2. Your children are not allowed in Tibetan schools.
    3. You may not join in community events in the refugee communities throughout India.
    4. You may not work in any jobs provided by Tibetan govt even if you are qualified within India.
    5. You are not allowed to attend any public talks by the Dalai Lama even secular in nature. You are checked for ID at the door claiming it’s for security.
    6. They restrict your travel by taking extra lengths to complicate issuing you proper papers.
    7. During public speeches, they denigrade the deity Dorje Shugden in order to have public opinion turned against those who practice Dorje Shugden.
    8. They create videos, documentaries and books ‘advertising’ Dorje Shugden as a bad deity. But they call this ‘advice’ only. They allocate much needed funds towards materials with ‘evidence’ that Dorje Shugden is harmful. What kind of government fund campaigns against a particular religion?
    9. They bar/expel you from from entering monasteries based on the fact you practice Dorje Shugden.
    10. Because they have received international pressure and was embarassed, they do not directly restrict you from the practice of Dorje Shugden but produce materials to speak against this faith isolating individuals who continue from the community.
    11. They have smear campaigns funded by the CTA’s Dept of Information & International Relations on social media to destroy the reputation of certain Tibetan teachers who continue to practice Dorje Shugden.
    12. They villify Dorje Shugden practitoners as people who are against Tibetan freedom, Tibetan culture and conveniently called them China spies and violent. This is part of their campaign. Why would China pay anyone to pray to Dorje Shugden? I do not know about others, but I receive no payment for my spiritual practice of Dorje Shugden from any individual, organization or government. I am accused of this as a smear campaign to silence me. But prove clearly that I receive payment from any govt or organization for my practice of Dorje Shugden. If you cannot prove it but continue to say so, then it’s an organized smear campaign from the Dept of Information & International Relations of the CTA in Dharamsala for what they see as defiance when it’s really religious freedom.
    13. Tibetan government in exile has been known to encourage the crowd to harm Dorje Shugden practitioners by posting ‘wanted’ posters of well known and defiant Dorje Shugden practitoners in the 24 refugee communities throughout India.
    14. Whatever donations, gifts, items, help given to the Tibetan govt, their hospitals, Monasteries, schools, individuals by Dorje Shugden practitioners prior to the ban against Dorje Shugden in 1996 has not been refunded or returned. Many Dorje Shugden practitioners including myself have made substantial donations to many sectors of the Tibetan refugee communities and monasteries and all items and monies have not been returned. If Dorje Shugden practitioners are bad, why keep their donations and gifts but restrict their presence?

    I have nothing against Tibet, Tibetans or His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In fact I wish His Holiness long life and health always. I have never said in speech or print any negative word against His Holiness the Dalai Lama. But this ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners is unfair, undemocratic and against human rights. It must be addressed, revoked and removed. It is creating a huge rift within Tibetan communities where we need to be united to preserve our culture, religion and way of life around the world. Whether an individual wishes to practice Dorje Shugden or not is up to the individual, but there should be no restrictions or prejudice created by CTA for engaging in this practice. Now in the 21st century, only in the Tibetan communities lead by CTA, there is heavy religious discrimination. But some find it hard to believe because it does not match the reputation of the Dalai Lama in which the CTA is under. If there is no ban and systematic controlled and funded tyranny against Dorje Shugden practitioners like myself, why should I speak up or say these things? I have no gains to speak up if it was not true. There are thousands of other individuals who can attest to all I have said and much proof to find even on the internet. This systematic tyranny against the fundamental human right of religious choice to practice Dorje Shugden must stop before it creates more damage to individuals and groups and at the same time bringing down the reputation of the CTA or Tibetan govt in exile headquartered in Dharamsala, North India as backward and tyrannical.

    Hello jeff Weegee, you came here to insult our guru and claimed that he gets monetary support from China without any documentary,evidential, bullet proof and solid evidence. In the eyes of the learned criminal court judges this statement itself is very defamatory and you can be sued for character assasination and defamation. However, you are not very smart enough thinking that by coming here and abusing our kind guru’s nature and forgiving heart with such nonsensical unproven lies he will not institute further action. It only means that you wantonly and deliberately wants to hurt my guru’s good name thinking that by saying the above he will not retaliate but I beg to differ as you will never know what his students have in store for people of loose characters. We may not be as forgiving as our guru because you intentionally wants to ruin my guru’s reputation and that itself is an urgent call for us to defend him when viciously attacked. We will vehemently pursue such unproven accusations without repose and put to rest all these once and for all and eventually let justice prevails

    Yes it is time to worry for sure if we are not doing anything to protect our earth , environment and animals .There’s the threat that climate change will do more harm.One recent study found that as temperatures rise over the next century.Marine life of dolphins , leatherback sea turtles and so forth are affected .Sooner or later they will be extnct due to global warming. .Scientists discovered environmental pollution can cause human fertility.
    Human activity, including over fishing, unsustainable agriculture, a dramatic loss in natural habitats, and—of course—climate change are to be blamed. Hence it is indeed a time to worry and put in more effort to protect our environment and earth.

    The global warming has become alarming and at risks. Arctic drilling could speed up global warming and harm endangered wildlife in the Arctic. Its good that former US President Obama ban offshore drilling untill 2022. Even though this ban only last for five years it is at least protected. With the new President Trump ,i do hope he won’t withdrew global effort to reduce fossil fuel emission and hoping that more people are aware of what happening to the arctic .

We can stop all this by starting from our self. Always be mindful, throw rubbish in the right place and use more recycle items.

    Kaizen practise is a good method to start training our mind to push ourselves and do something new everyday for 1 minute. Because it start with 1 minute, we would not have reason to not do it. Once we started to learn something new and continuously doing it, we will get use to and improve it further.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing Its alarming that plastic pollution has already reached deep oceans which has negatively affecting deep sea animals.The researchers found inside the deep sea animals were polyester, nylon and acrylic.That is bad enough causing ingestion in deep sea animals, such as sea cucumbers, hermit crabs and squat lobsters .Sooner or later they are becoming extinct due to all these plastic pollution. Deep sea animals have the freedom to live too. Do hope all of us take responsibility to care for the environment. Attitude and educating ourselves and sharing with others on the best and safest ways of disposal of rubbish will be wonderful.

The smell of mint is really nice and it has many benefits to our human body too. Hence, it will be a good idea to add mint leaves into our grocery shopping list.

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.

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

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

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

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR
