Since Rinpoche began speaking about the Dorje Shugden practice in public, there have been detractors and critics who have directed insults, vulgarities and violent remarks towards Rinpoche.

Encouragingly however, there have also been many positive comments and messages of support for Rinpoche. We, as Rinpoche’s students, have collected them here, to give encouragement and inspiration to everyone who continues to receive verbal and physical abuse for their practice and beliefs. We rejoice in people’s ability to look at the facts and evidence, and decide for themselves if Dorje Shugden is good or not.

It is sad that even in the 21st century, people continue to be persecuted and discriminated against for their beliefs. Today, people around the world generally have more freedoms compared to any other point in history. Yet, in the case of Shugden practitioners, many receive threats of harm, violence and even death due to the religious choices they make.

Those who are against Dorje Shugden claim that Shugden practitioners have the religious freedom to worship whoever we want but that is definitely not the case. It is NOT religious freedom when there are violent and vulgar consequences to our beliefs. It is NOT religious freedom when hate groups are set up specifically targeting our practice and nothing is done to stop them or shut them down. And it is definitely NOT religious freedom when the leadership and those in power do nothing to discourage all the violence and threats that are directed at Shugden practitioners on a daily basis.

Just by reading the comments below, it is very clear to see that when people do not get swept away by the controversies surrounding Dorje Shugden’s practice, and they propitiate Dorje Shugden as he should be (i.e. a World Peace Protector), they receive immense benefits in their secular and spiritual lives. So when people continue to abuse, demonise and ostracise Shugden practitioners for their beliefs, they make it harder and harder for those who are suffering to access his help.

Thus we humbly and respectfully request His Holiness the Dalai Lama to end the ban on Shugden which is causing much difficulty, pain, suffering and division amongst Buddhist practitioners all over the world. In your compassion, please put an end to the persecution of Shugden practitioners who are only upholding their commitments and practices to their teachers and trying to follow the Buddhadharma as best they can.

Dearest Tsem,

I write with horror at the abuse hurled at you and all those who regard Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden as their Dharma Protector. During the middle of last year, I tried for many days to patiently reason with some of these professed supporters of the Dalai Lama but instead they returned nasty, evil comments, calling me a ‘drug abuser’ etc. They clearly looked at my Facebook site and previous photos of me where I don’t look great. I will freely admit, I have had problems with drugs in the past and I still struggle but I am currently almost completely free from any intoxicant or medication, largely thanks to my faith in my Spiritual Guide and the help and support of deities such as Dorje Shugden. I know from personal experience he only increases my love, compassion, wisdom and other good qualities (14 years practice) and helps me reduce my delusions. I wanted to thank you for joining the increasing number of Lamas, Geshes and other esteemed practitioners who are now being open about their Dorje Shugden practice. It takes great courage to put up with the kind of abuse and treatment they receive.

I recently visited Shar Garden in Mundgod, circumnambulated the stupas of Trijang and Song Rinpoche stupas across the road, and then saw one of the posters. Before I could get really angry, two of the monks from the ‘other side’ gave me very broad, knowing smiles. It was then I realised quite how many monks must be secretly practising. I would imagine 1000’s. It reminded me of a visit to Manali, North India, when I had to smuggle a Dorje Shugden Thangkha out of a Gompa, given to me by a monk who sadly professed it was of no use to him anymore because of the atmosphere of hate. This was 10 years ago. But I knew he would always keep Dorje Shugden in his heart and that he had a strong relationship with Setrap, who he saw as very close to Shugden, perhaps even the same nature.

Anyway, enough of my rambles. Thanks again from my heart for your courage. Please maintain it! And ignore the awful remarks, they simply come from the delusions within deluded minds, our only enemies. Also, thank you for your teaching. The main one that inspired me was on Vajrasattva practice, and straight after reading your teaching I went straight into the practice. Wonderful! I myself know I am not strong enough to play an active role in this fight for religious freedom and a unified Tibetan community, but am always behind the seems, hoping, praying, and ready to help when the time comes.

With many prayers and blessings,
– A

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The comment above reads:

Thank you for your courageous decision to openly worship Gyalchen Dorje Shugden. I hope that you will remain safe and can continue spreading Je Tsongkhapas doctrine for a long time.

Vajra

It is sad that Rinpoche’s practice of Dorje Shugden is considered courageous when, in this day and age, what we choose to believe in and practice should not be a matter of bravery. It is an automatic right given to us by any laws that protect religious freedoms of whatever country we are living in.

The nice comment above (and typed out below) was left on Rinpoche’s video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxC6uKHM3dY). Please take the time to read this personal sharing by Dorje Drakpa who explains how Dorje Shugden helped his father, why he does not bear any animosity towards those who enforce the ban and how Rinpoche’s teaching has inspired him.

Thank you for this awesome logic talk. I have listen to some many talk about Dharmapala Dorje shugden …. both against and For Dorje shugden. And I must complement your talk has been the best …. both in logic and intention. I am a Tibetan reciting in NYC and was fortunate to have met Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I have first hand experience about Dharmapala Dorjeshugden and my experience tells me that Dorjeshugden is enlighten being. How? My father was ex-monk from sera monastery. Toward the end of his life he suffered from Pulmonary Tuberculosis and his body totally wasted. At that time their was no good remedy for the disease. He could not even get up from bed but everyday he deed his puja … Lama cheopa and Neljorma. My mom knowing the end was near requested Dorjeshugden medium Kuten Lama to visit our home. Kuten Lama immediately came to our house. Haphazardly neighbor Constructed small elevated seat upon which Kuten Lama and went to trance. For almost whole one hour Dharmapala Dorje Shugden gave teaching from Lamrim and give his blessing. Soon after My loving Father passed away peacefully while reciting his daily puja with Pecha on his chest. My father was bed ridden for almost three year but he was never on pain. Every day he deed his puja. How can enlighten being such as Trichang Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche can teach other to rely on Dharma protector who is evil spirit ? That doesn’t make any sense even to my small mind. Today due to this controversy there is huge separation among Tibetan community which is growing deeper and deeper. If the intension of Tibetan leadership is to fragment the Tibetan community they are succeeding! I never went to protest against HHDL even though I live in NYC… When ever HHDL comes to NYC I want to see and hear from him. SO even though I want to – I don’t go to see him , out of sheer respect for his wishes . If he ever say Dorjeshugden people can come to his teaching I will go happily. Tibetan cause is to dear to me as it is dear to any Tibetan. I pay my green book donation without failure and go to protest against Chinese unlawful occupation of Tibet as all the Tibetan does. We rely on Dharmapla Dorje shugden so as to make progress with less obstructed path towards spiritual attainment. Not because we want to harm other or gain wealth. This controversy must stop if we as a race truly belief in secularism. Thank you Tsem Rinpoche for genuine effort to bring peace within Tibetan community. ཐུགས་རྗེ་ཆེ།།

continue – For almost one hour Dharmapala Dorje shugden give teaching from Lamrim, talk about Impermanence , about Cause and effect ( karma ) and advice my father to practice ” TONGLEN” and make his suffering worthwhile. After few days my father passed away peacefully after doing his daily puja – with his PECHA on his chest. If Dorje shugden is evil spirit would he Dharma teaching from LAMRIM ? This has to stop if we as a “NATION” truly belief in secularism. CHURCH and STATE has to be separate. ཐུགས་རྗེ་ཆེ།།

 

I would like thank you for helping me with the issue of Dorja shugden as I was really troubled as to what to do in regards to the practice I have been studying on my own for many years and have recently joined the New Kadampa tradition at which time I heard about this controversy for the first time and am Quite taken back by all the name calling and smear tactics but your talk on your Views on Dorja Sugden, the Dalai Lama and request and offering to them helped me feel much more secure in my own practice at the same time extend an apology to you as before watching this talk I was totally mistaken in my view of your teaching by all the Dorja Sugden posts from your sight I placed you in the same light as all the protesters and for this I am deeply sorry I can now say I am a Dorja Shugden Practitioner with out compromising my own views as they a line perfectly to what I have just listened to you teach thank you and may many blessings be bestowed upon you.

– Frank

 

 

We received this really positive comment a few days ago about H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s recent series of video teachings. Watch the videos here (http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=65988) and see for yourself what about Rinpoche’s videos inspired this person.

 

 

The comment above reads:

I consider myself a student of Holy Kalu Rinpoche (although he has no reason to consider me as such), and when I took refuge many years ago I was told that I should study with a lama. I replied that the only lama near where I lived was a Gelugpa lama and I was told that’s OK, that’s good. So I had the immense good fortune of spending time with and studying with the very wonderful, generous and venerable Geshe Khenrab Gajam. Geshe-la had many students and he and some of his students did the Dorje Shugden practise. Some did not. It didn’t seem to be an issue. Geshe-la sometimes taught at a local Kagyupa centre and Kalu Rinpoche taught at Geshe-la’s centre, as did many illustrious Gelugpa lamas and Rinpoches. We had the good fortune of having Geshe-la with us for over three decades and I don’t remember there ever being any problem with the practice of this most extraordinary Dharma Protector until very late in Geshe-la’s life and also after Geshe-la’s passing the practice was continued, and then it seemed to become an “issue” with some people.

I can say that I’ve never found the teachings of the many lamas who practised this this Dharma Protector were ever sectarian or in any way in conflict with any other Dharma teachings that my minute experience has encountered.

Rinpoche, thank you for being so clear in your plea for harmony and understanding.

    This is an interesting and uncommon view of why His Holiness the Dalai Lama imposed the Dorje Shugden ban. The commenter ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ is honest to say that despite not wanting to, she could not help seeing the beauty in the Dorje Shugden practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

    It is heartwarming to read positive comments and feedbacks here. Thank you to everyone who voiced out, so that the haters do not rule the world. The only way to counter negativity is through love and acceptance. We balance negativity by having more positivity. May more positive pour in! There are already many sufferings and pains without the unwarranted hatreds, discriminations, and threats from haters who blatantly ignore human rights and religious freedom. We must voice out peacefully!

    Thank you very much admin and blog team who made all these messages available to the public. It is wonderful to see people comment on Dorje Shugden practice and the ban. Keeping silence does not help the cause. This way, many people who have doubts and when they see so many positive and logical comments, their doubts lessen and faith grew stronger. I hope everyone will keep up and continue to bring more positivities in. Especially now with the latest videos on “Tibetan leadership’s new anti-Shugden video” with the motivation by Martin Chow and Kechara team, I am confident that it will bring awareness to more people about the CTA manipulating the Dorje Shugden ban and get the ban lifted as soon as possible. Below is the link for the videos.

    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

    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,

    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!

    Its nice to see peoples comments on Dorje Shugden practice and ban, Its clearly see Rinpoche had benefited many by bring dorje shugden practice and knowledge to public.. Wish and pray in the future may many benefits Dorje Shugden practice and from Rinpoche’s teaching. Om Benza wiki Bitana Soha

    Thank you to the blog team who made all these messages available to the public. It is inspiring to know Rinpoche benefits and is a light for so many who may not have a close teacher or practitioner to clarify things with.

  8. Wei on Jul 2, 2015 at 3:04 am

    It is great to see many people supporting Tsem Rinpoche’s approach to the Dorje Shugden ban. It is important to keep showing support to this cause because not everybody online is fully informed or informed correctly about the issue. Rinpoche would not try to take down the ban for himself but for the sake of others and that can be seen because he shows no aggression but respectfully requests the discrimination to end. People need to be well informed on what is going on so they can form their own informed views and not be discouraged by a lack of information and then follow like blind sheep.

  9. Cynthia Lee on Jun 1, 2015 at 12:20 am

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

  11. Pavara Lam on Apr 27, 2015 at 10:15 pm

    It is good to see that some people still support Rinpoche even though he practices Dorje Shugden. These people are the real buddhist as they respect what other people practice. Of course when there are haters there are admirers and these people makes the situation bright even with the world going against you. As the saying goes you are not famous till you have haters. I am really sure that Dorje Shugden will benefit the world one day.
    I really hope that people would stop harming Dorje Shugden practitioners and live in peace like old times.

  12. Low KHJB on Apr 26, 2015 at 1:27 am

    Thank you, admin team for the sharing .We certainly hope that for all those who are attached to hate,ignorance and violence in the name of Dharma.Have a chance to experience compassion,generosity and wisdom as thought to us by Tsem Rinpoche all these years.
    His only objective is to guide us to gain positive mind transformation through proper dharma practice. So …What is wrong in doing good …?
    All I can say is Thank You Rinpoche for your generous dharma sharing ,may the ban on Dorje Shugden practice be lifted in order to benefit others to engage in the practice to clear their obstacles.

  13. Datuk May on Apr 23, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    It is really heart warming that ADMIN published all the appreciations from so many people all over the world.

    It was also very saddening to have read and know of all the nasties, abusive remarks and threats made on our precious Guru.

    Whatever it is let it be known that our faith in Dorje Shugden and Rinpoche will not falter and on that basis, the DS lineage will preserve and spread in 10 directions to benefit many in these degenerate times.

  14. Patsy on Apr 23, 2015 at 6:31 pm

    Thank you Admin for sharing all these appreciative and positive comments from all over the world thanking and recognizing the great works of H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche has done so much to benefit others through his Teachings and sharing the practice of two Great Protectors, Lord Setrap and Dorje Shugden, to help us overcome our inner and outer obstacles and bringing relief to the sufferings of many.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for being here with us and paving a path for our spiritual journey. Long Live Rinpoche!

    By being a good example ourselves, we can be a more effective campaigner for the helpless animals. I believe that when we want to stand for something, the most powerful words that speak for us is our action. It is inconsistent when one campaigns for the rescued or stray dogs and ask for donations to feed them but consume chicken and seafood and pork and beef. There is no difference between these animals, they all have feelings and fear for pain. So, here’s a picture of the dogs all trapped in a cramped cage where chicken, sea animals, pigs, and cows are in same or worse conditions waiting to be slaughtered. If you feel for these poor dogs, please spare a thought for the other meat on your plate too. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the teaching on What is a Blessing. Many of us got all excited when we get a “blessing” from a high lama, but often time neglected the true meaning of the blessing. What Rinpoche taught us is important because we need to stop putting our fate, destiny, life in the hands of others. The mindset of thinking that once we have gotten the blessings from a holy being and then we will have good fortune and will be set for life, s not the correct mindset. The holy lama has the power by his touch to bless us, to protect us and to open up our previous imprint. The blessing is meant to trigger us to become better and change the course of our life for the better. A blessing brings positive energy into our life, and it is really up to us to persistently pursue that good cause and change our life for the better.

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden***

    Dorje Shugden is also known as the Protector of our time because, apart from guiding Buddhist practitioners on their path to Enlightenment, he also attends to our daily challenges and obstacles. Dorje Shugden does this not because he is a fulfiller of samsaric wishes but because in his omniscience, Dorje Shugden recognises that the human mind becomes distracted from Dharma practice by mundane problems. Hence alleviating our worries and fulfilling our wishes is just a means by which Dorje Shugden helps practitioners achieve the higher objective…>>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-advantages-of-propitiating-dorje-shugden-part-1

    FEAR NO MORE… here is a method which not only dispels the negative things sent to you and not only does it protects you but it also helps the spirit stop collecting negative karma and binds/subdues it with compassion…

    感恩仁波切和邝仁爱讲法师的分享 !

    看完这篇文章后, 我的心情很沉重和心痛, 多杰雄登修持者在这20年以来开始就被歧视, 不友善对待, 伤害,破坏家园。在文章里, 讲法师被朋友在网上绝交(只因为讲法师是雄登修持者),被丑化, 被脏言怒骂等等, 只因是” 多杰雄登修持者 ” 。那是多么的无辜和无奈和心痛 !

    在邝仁爱讲法师提到的, 赞助大德一直以来供养了庞大的资源如金钱, 修理佛堂, 建医疗中心,供养佛像等等, 让寺院里的僧人拥有舒适的地方和足够的资源修行, 但是为何只有了多杰雄登的争论课题, 西藏中央政府要严厉的把 “修持雄登者” 和” 无修持雄登者”严重的隔离呢?

    一直以来, 所有修持多杰雄登法门的高僧大德如帕绷卡仁波切, 赤江仁波切, 宋仁波切, 刚坚仁波切, 詹杜固仁波切等等都是无私的不断弘扬佛法, 把宗喀巴大师的传承与佛法传播到世界每一个角落, 利益众生 !而且, 很多修持雄登的高僧还一直转世回来继续祂们的宏愿呢 !

    修持多杰雄登法门保护我们和帮助减轻或去除我们的障碍,让我们在灵修的路上更加快速的达到成就 !

    希望尊贵的达赖尊者,西藏中央政府和有关当局可以尽早把”多杰雄登争论课题”解决, 因为还没出现这课题之前, 大家都是一样的和谐共处,一起辩论佛法,一起参加法会, 一起开心的生活。

    愿尊贵的达赖尊者与尊贵的上师詹仁波切健康长寿,吉祥如意, 愿雄登课题可以尽早解决, 世界和平 !

    Each time when I read of the miracle helps from Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden on people who are in dire straits, the faith for the Guru and Dorje Shugden grow stronger. There are many problems in life where we, human, cannot tackle on our own; especially health problems, emergencies, and disturbance from black magic or spirit. The methods and practice shared by Rinpoche, for example, the Dorje Shugden practice, are proven methods passed from hundreds of years ago and most importantly, it works! Would we rather take a 50-50 chance or seek help from an efficient and proven method? Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for this sharing.

    This is such great news! Congratulation to Ram on the safe arrival of his newborn baby as well as his wife being saved and survived. It’s great to see them live happily now.
    This proved to us that no matter our race, gender, age and etc, Dorje Shugden will help us if we are sincere and have faith with guru and Dorje Shugden. The instructions from guru included do the pujas, candles light offering and recite Dorje Shugden mantra were important to follow in order to help his wife and baby to collect merits and clear obstacles.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. May Ram and his family continue to be blessed by Dorje Shugden and have the opportunity to learn and practice dharma.

    Cannot imagine that the Tibetan leadership does not appreciate and show gratitude to those sponsor (jindak).Feeling sad disappointed as its Kecharas that have sponsored them 3000 sets of robes and statues to all of the monks of Gaden Monastery to name a few.Yet the jindaks were treated so badly denied services to hotel and are not allowed to revisit the monasteries that the jindaks sponsored.The Jindaks were also verbally abused in social media.All these happened just because of the practicing of Dorje Shugden as their choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche,Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai for sharing.
    Hope more people will be aware of this discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners world wide.http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/how-tibetan-leadership-treats-a-sponsor-jindak.html

    Amazing with Rinpoche ‘s blessing and compassion Ram’s wife and baby was well and healthy. Ram’s wife was operated and her baby was born premature at 7 months. Ram did what was instructed by Rinpoche to do pujas and candles offering for both wife and baby for a few days. Rinpoche also instructed Ram to recite Dorje Shugden’s powerful mantra to pray for protection for them. Both of them are one of those many people that Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden have saved over the years.
    Have trust and faith in our precious Guru and Dorje Shugden we will be protected.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharng

    Appreciate Robert for his generousity and kindness in giving the USD 5K to Rinpoche so he can settled all his loan and buy ticket to India to pursue his promise to be a monk. And he gave Rinpoche money without any condition but with sincere hope that Rinpoche can achieve his promise to be a monk.

    Rinpoche also showed to us that if we have good intention and determination in dharma we can achieve our goal. For example, Rinpoche do 100 prostration daily to Zong Rinpoche’s photo in order to create a cause for him to learn from Zong Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the inspiring story so we do not give up and continue learning and practising dharma .

    Geshe Thupten Lama is one of the great scholars and masters who has upheld the lineage of Lord Buddha’s liberating teachings ., Geshe Thupten Lama would not abandon the practice of Dorje Shugden was brand an evil Chinese spy,and enemy, His life was threatened ,was forced to seek political asylum in America.He was one brave masters to write 3 letters asking Dalai Lama to lift the ban on Dorje Shugden.He has worked tirelessly for the Tibetan government in exile.Many practitioners has suffered due to the ban .It has caused disharmony within the Tibetan communities throughout the world.May H.H Dalai Lama please lift the ban on Dorje shugden to restore peace and harmony.

    How to Rely upon Dorje Shugden

    Relying on a Dharma Protector or Dharmapala is an essential and beneficial practice within Vajrayana Buddhism. As a result of living in the Kaliyuga (degenerate) age, where negative karma is immense and distractions from the spiritual path are abundant, treading the path to Enlightenment can be an arduous and obstacle-ridden road.

    There’s a topic most people find a little awkward to talk about, and that’s sponsorship in the Dharma. People find it awkward because they think money is not a very spiritual thing to discuss. Yet it is an unavoidable subject because it’s a simple fact of life in samsara – monasteries and Dharma institutions would never be able to survive without the kindness of sponsors, and if they did not have the funds.

    The Meaning Behind Dorje Shugden’s Form
    Like the Buddha, Dorje Shugden’s body manifested from his great attainments. Hence, every part of his form has deep spiritual significance. Dorje Shugden’s entire body represents the complete path of the Lamrim or the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, and meditating upon it with correct understanding will generate great merits and spiritual attainments. This is a brief explanation of Dorje Shugden’s form: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/overview/the-meaning-behind-dorje-shugdens-form

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.

You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

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.

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.

    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

    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
