Recently, we have received the good news that two holy places are being built in Yunnan province, China. The first is a Dorje Shugden stupa in the Jade Dragon (Yulong) Snow Mountain area and the second is the rebuilding of Chosang Temple in Shangri-la.

I am pleased to be able to share this news with you, so that everyone can rejoice in the growth of Dorje Shugden’s practice around the world.

Yunnan Province

Yunnan is a province in the People’s Republic of China, located in the far south-western region of the country. The province borders Guangxi and Guizhou to the east, Sichuan to the north, and the Tibet Autonomous Region to the north-west.

Dorje Shugden Stupa, Jade Dragon (Yulong) Snow Mountain

Jade Dragon (Yulong) Snow Mountain is located in Lijiang City, Yunnan Yulong Naxi Autonomous County, in the south of China. The Yulong Snow Mountain Scenic Area is one of China’s 5A category tourist attractions.

We received news that since 2015, work has been underway to construct a Dorje Shugden stupa (gyalchen tendoe) amidst the beautiful and sacred snow-capped mountains. The main section of the stupa has now been completed and can accommodate hundreds of people.

Recently, two famous lamas in China who are building this stupa, Pelzang Rinpoche and Khedrup Rinpoche, consecrated the stupa and also performed a prayer ceremony there.

The stupa, including all the interior decorations, will be completed this year and thereafter will be open to the public to visit and worship. As you can see from the pictures below, the stupa is actually a standalone building.

The purpose of building this Dorje Shugden stupa is to bless all who visit these snow-capped mountains. Yulong Snow Mountain is a famous scenic area in Yunnan, and has a continuous stream of tourists. As such, it is a testament of Khedrup Rinpoche’s compassion and his strong belief that the Dharma Protector benefits many people.

Chosang Temple, Shangri-la

Chosang Temple, the building on the right with red pillars

After a fire in 2007, Chosang Temple was finally rebuilt on a hilltop in Dongwang township in Shangri-la, Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan, through the efforts of Khedrup Rinpoche and his disciples.

Chosang Temple was first built during the Yuan Dynasty (1260 AD) and was a temple of the Naxi-Dongba people. It became a Kagyu monastery in 1574, when the Kagyu school was influential, and was renamed Kata Gonggen Monastery. When His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama and the Mongolians established Gaden Phodrang in 1674, the monastery was put under the care of Gaden Sumtseling. It was then renamed a ‘ritroe’, meaning meditation hermitage.

In 1738, during the reign of His Holiness the 7th Dalai Lama, Buddhism was degenerating in the area and the monastery was in a state of disrepair. The local people thus wrote a letter to the Dalai Lama hoping to restore the monastery.

The hill where Chosang Temple is located

The 7th Dalai Lama designated Geshe Marang, a scholar who had achieved the highest rank in his Geshe examinations, to be the abbot of Chosang Temple. Geshe Marang (1718 – 1761) was none other than the first incarnation in the lineage of Khedrup Rinpoches. This abbot presided over the reconstruction of the temple in order to restore Buddhism in the area and renamed it Gandan Chokyi Sangbu Ling, also known as Chosang Temple.

The Buddha statues housed in Chosang Temple include a 4-meter-tall Lama Tsongkhapa statue, a 3-meter-tall Lama Tsongkhapa statue with his heart disciples Gyaltsab Je and Khedrup Je, as well as statues of Maitreya – the future Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, Green Tara, Amitabha, wealth deities and Dorje Shugden.

Khedrup Rinpoche plays an important role in the propagation of Buddhadharma in the Yunnan area.

A few years ago, the compassionate Khedrup Rinpoche realised the challenges faced by lay practitioners in China who wanted to learn the Dharma.

Thus, he made a wish to establish a centre where the public could learn the art of thangka painting without distractions, and where accommodation and food would be provided free of charge.

Located in the beautiful Yulong Snow Mountain is the Lijiang Ju Shi Lin centre. Personally designed by Khedrup Rinpoche, the building of the centre started in October 16, 2014 and with the efforts of Khedrup Rinpoche as well as Dharma brothers and sisters, Lijiang Ju Shi Lin centre was finally completed on June 1, 2015.

中国云南省的新圣地

最近我们收到两则好消息:中国云南省添了两个新的多杰雄登护法圣地。其中一座是建在玉龙雪山地区的多杰雄登塔,另一个则是重建香格里拉的曲桑寺。我们想与您分享这份喜悦,好让每个人能为多杰雄登护法的法门在世界各地持续增长而感到随喜。

玉龙雪山多杰雄登塔

玉龙雪山位于云南省丽江市玉龙纳西族自治区,属中国最南部的雪山;玉龙雪山景区为中国 5A 级旅游区。在克珠仁波切的带领下,去年开始在这座美丽又神圣的雪山上兴建一座多杰雄登塔。

目前这座塔的实体已经完成,可容纳上百人。不久前,中国著名的白嗓活佛受邀与克珠仁波切一同为这座塔装藏及进行开光仪式。

玉龙雪山是云南著名的观光区,游客络绎不绝。因此,克珠仁波切特别安排将这座多杰雄登塔建于观光区内,好让每位前来游览雪山的民众都得到护法加持。由此可见,克珠仁波切的大慈大悲及其对护法强大的信念利益了不少人。

香格里拉曲桑寺

曲桑寺曾一度遭火灾摧毁,在克珠仁波切及弟子的努力下,该寺自2007年起得以在云南省迪庆藏族自治区的香格里拉东旺乡的山上重建。曲桑寺最初建于元朝时期(西元一二六零年),为纳西东巴文化神庙,后于噶玛噶举时期(西元一五七四年)改为噶玛噶举寺院,并改名为卡达供更寺。接着在第五世达赖喇嘛阿旺罗桑嘉措和蒙古硕特部建立噶丹政权时期(西元一六七四年),将该寺纳入格鲁派松赞林管辖,改名“日吹”静修寺。

第七世达赖喇嘛格桑江措执政时期(西元一七三八年),佛教日渐式微,寺院也大量摧毁,所以当地百姓写信祈求重建寺院。因此,第七世达赖喇嘛指派在千万名僧众中脱颖而出,考取西藏大昭寺格西拉让巴学位的色拉寺高僧泽央折格西玛郎绕毗,即第一世克珠活佛(1718年—1761年),为曲桑寺第一任主持,重建寺院及复兴佛教,并赐名该寺为噶丹曲吉桑布林,简称曲桑寺。

曲桑寺的大殿内将会供奉4米高的宗喀巴大师、3米高的宗喀巴大师心子贾曹杰仁波切和克珠杰仁波切,以及弥勒佛、药师佛、释迦摩尼佛、绿度母、阿弥陀佛及多杰雄登像。

关于克珠仁波切

几年前慈悲的仁波切看到内地居士求法、学法不易,希望能在内地建立居士林,好让世界各地真心学法、学唐卡的居士能有一个不受打扰的学处,且为了解除居士的后顾之忧,也有了想要免费提供吃、住的想法。因此,仁波切于玉龙雪山脚下开始建设丽江居士林。该居士林由克珠仁波切亲自设计,于2014年10月6日开始建设工作。在克珠活佛及其弟子的努力下,居士林终于在2015年6月1日建成。

克珠仁波切在云南一代致力于弘扬佛法,除了在居士林给予开示和加持之外,还会应邀到其他地方授课。他曾应香格里拉唐卡中心香港大学生的邀请,到中心为学生们讲解佛法和艺术。

    So nice to read about Gelug Lamas are actively promoting Dorje Shugden and Tsongkhapa teachings. Yunnan is truly fortunate to have man Gelug lamas who are working hard to proliferate the teachings.

  2. Irene Lim on Nov 14, 2017 at 2:21 pm

    In this part of Yunnan it is a stronghold for Dorje Shugden practice. I rejoice that they are building 2 holy places to propagate Dorje Shugden practice to the lay people.

    The scenery here is breathtaking and beautiful. I wish to go back to visit this part of Yunnan again some day.

  3. Tan Soon Huat on Nov 9, 2017 at 8:08 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful news; two new holy places built in Yunnan. It clearly showed that world famous Dorje Shugden praying has been spread to China. I have been staying in China for 2.5 years, I understand that Chinese really need Dharma to help them. I strongly believe Dorje Shugden will help to bring or restore Dharma in China.

    I truly admire the commitment of Khedrup Rinpoche, the commitment He has been carrying for almost 400 years from 7th Dalai Lama to restore Chosang Temple. It proved again the high attained Lamas take their Guru’s instruction by heart even for so many life times. It sounds familiar to me that how my Guru, H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, take H.H.Zong Rinpoche’s instruction so seriously and continue His commitment even Zong Rinpoche has entered into clear light.

    Hence, I sincerely beg H.H. Dalai Lama with folded hands to lift the ban of Dorje Shugden as we can not give up this praying as this practice has been passed down by our Guru to us.

  4. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Nov 4, 2017 at 6:33 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the good news of the two holy places, which are being built by two famous lamas, Pelzang Rinpoche and Khedrup Rinpoche in Yunnan, China. The construction of Dorje Shugden stupa in Jade Dragon (Yulong) Snow Mountain and restoration of Chosang Temple on a hilltop in Dongwang, Shangri-la signify the continuous growing of Buddhism practice, especially the spreading of Dorje Shugden practice in China. I truly admire the strong determination and hard work given by Pelzang Rinpoche and Khedrup Rinpoche to propagate the Buddhadharma in Yunnan area so that the people living in that area will have the opportunities to learn and practice Buddhadharma from the pure lineage of Gelugpa. During the construction of Chosang Temple, it also benefits many villagers nearby who have helped with the construction as they can accumulate merits and purify negative karma for their future Buddhadharma practice progress. Besides, these kind and generous villagers will also gain the sense of commitment and responsibility to protect the Buddhadharma practice from the current generation to the next and many more future generations. May Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden continuously bless and protect many sentient beings through the practice of Buddhadharma until samsara ends.

    Humbly with folded hands,
    kin hoe

    Very heartwarming to see the stupa of Dorje Shugden in being constructed in Lijiang City, Yunnan Yulong Naxi Autonomous County and Chosang Temple on a hilltop in Dongwang township in Shangri-la, Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan, being restored.

    It is through the kindness of Khedrup Rinpoche and Pelzang Rinpoche that this is possible.
    Rejoice that many will benefit when they visit these tourists areas.

  6. Datuk May on Nov 2, 2017 at 8:59 pm

    It is through the pure dedication of High Lamas to benefit us with the Dharma and blessings of King Protector, Dorje Shugden that temples, stupas and holy places manifest.

    Rejoice and gratitude to Khedrup Rinpoche and Pelzang Rinpoche that a Dorje Shugden stupa will soon be ready in Yulong (Jade Dragon) Snow Mountain, and rebuilding of Chosang Temple, Shangri la.

    It is so befitting for Dorje Shugden stupa to manifest in the beautiful and scenic region of Lijiang, Yunnan, China.

  7. yin ping on Nov 2, 2017 at 8:48 pm

    Dorje Shugden practice is growing around the world! There is a Dorje Shugden stupa located in the Jade Dragon (Yulong) Snow Mountain Scenic Area in Yunnan, where China gives the highest rate in tourist attractions. The credits go to 2 famous lamas in China, Pelzang Rinpoche and Khedrup Rinpoche who are compassion and holding strong faith to Droje Shugden practice. Many people will be connected to Dorje Shugden and received blessing whenever they visited this holy site. The stupa will be completed this year and open to the public to visit and worship.

    The second is the rebuilding of Chosang Temple in Shangri-la on the hilltop in Dongwang. This is an ancient temple dated back to Yuan Dynasty(1260 AD). The temple has survived for centuries until it caught into fire in 2007. When a religious site is being rebuilt, this is significant that there is growth in spiritual practice among the community. Now the temple is rebuilding with the help from sponsors and villages. And Dorje Shugden statue were painted ready upon completion of the temple. This is an important indication that Dorje Shugden practice is growing and many people have benefited from the blessing and protections of Dorje Shugden. Rejoices ^^

  8. Lim Han Nee on Nov 2, 2017 at 5:50 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful rejoicing news of the two holy places that are going to be opened soon in the Yunnan Province -the newly built Dorje Shugden stupa in the most scenic spot of the Jade Dragon Mountains and the rebuilding of Chosang Temple in Shangri-la. These are great signs that the Dorje Shugden practice is spreading and will continue to spread everywhere. The two holy monks behind the construction of these two sacred buildings are great Masters who are known for their kindness ,Pelzang Rinpoche and Khedrup Rinpoche. Out of great compassion for the benefits of Dorje Shugden’s practice and Je Tsongkhapa’s tradition to be received by many, they embarked on this painstaking and joyful effort of building these two holy sites. Pilgrims and tourists are likely to flock to these places when they are opened to the public!

  9. Samfoonheei on Nov 2, 2017 at 2:03 pm

    Rejoice to Khedrup Rinpoche and Pelzang Rinpoche having built a stupa and rebuilt the Chosang Temple.which was destroyed in a fire.
    Dorje Shugden stupa is located in the beautiful Yulong Snow Mountain which is surrounded by lofty spruces. Its meadow and forest scenery is peaceful and beautiful, that attracts many tourist. Now is a famous scenic spot for sightseeing, mountaineering, skiing, exploration and scientific research.
    And the second is the rebuilding of Chosang Temple in Shangri-la located in China’s best-preserved minority ancient town. It is famous for its ancient architecture.
    Khedrup Rinpoche’s compassion and his strong belief that the Dharma Protector benefits many people and to spread the Buddhadharma in the Yunnan area
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these wonderful news.

  10. Wong Suet Moi on Nov 2, 2017 at 9:44 am

    Just over the years we’ve lost an incredible variety of species, like these amazing creatures
    animals that have recently become extinct. I have not seen all these animals before till I read this article. Some of them looks odd in features. Animal extinctions may be caused by natural occurrences such as climatic heating or cooling or changes in sea levels. In more modern times, however, human activity has been to blame. The main cause of modern extinctions could also be like clearing forest , expanding of farming land and so forth.
    The authority concerned must do some thing before the situation getting worse. In no time there will be any of these animals left and seen.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and to create awareness of protecting life and the living environment of those extinct animals.

    Wonderful and powerful quotes for us to ponder ,to choose to be a vegetarian.Wow….what a huge difference between those vegetarian childhood having IQ of 109.1, and meat eaters childhood having IQ of 100.9. It show that those people on vegetarian are smarter then.
    Being a vegetarian makes it easier for us to increase our loving kindness and compassion. Do it for the animals. Do it for the environment, and do it for our health.
    In every country in the world, killing human beings is condemned. The Buddhist precept of non-killing extends even further, to include all living beings…….~ Thich Nhat Hanh

    Wow …..there is such a city in India ,which was a eye opening for me. This Indian city Palitana becomes world’s first vegetarian city . This city a major pilgrimage centre for Jains religion and is known for being the largest cluster of Jain temples.They have take an approached to protect all sentient beings to go on vegetarian lifestyle. More or less a vegan as no eggs. The government has even made illegal of the buying and selling of meat, fish and eggs, and also related jobs or work, such as fishing. And has declared Palitana a meat-free zone prohibiting animal slaughter within the town’s limits.
    Jainism is one of the oldest religions in the world and preaches a path of non-violence towards all living beings. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.
    Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances of survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet…..quoted by Albert Einstein

    Choose to go on vegetarian ,it’s a healthy and worthy way to live.Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try . I have always been health conscious, I saw sick people with medical problems my whole life and naturally wanted to avoid going down the same path. I try my best to go meatless and have more vege since then. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our planet. By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. We can save many lives by going on vegetarian. Through reasearher has found that those on vegetarian had a better complexion, healthy, better digestive system and many more benefits to our body in long term.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a informative article , to create awareness so as more and more people will be on vegetarian or at least meatless.

    The natural environments such as Chamang Waterfalls and Kechara Forest Retreat are really nice and peaceful. These places may help us in lessening our stress and heal our body and mind.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the prayer to Buddha Vajrayogini. We are so fortunate to be able to connect to Vajrayogini through Rinpoche. May I be able to connect to Vajrayogini lineage master in every life time and reach Kechara Paradise.

    It’s a holocaust ….killing millions of dogs. Such a horrible scene looking at the pictures of those dead bodies of our dear friend. Could not have imagine there is a death squad roaming in the streets of Baghdad, hunting for dogs either shooting them or poisoned them. To those team culling stray dogs was a nightly routine for them as they expect to get the number down. The huge number of dogs in the capital that has cause a nuisance ,health problems and unhealthy environment .
    They are in an attempt to wipe out the estimated one million stray dogs that roam the capital. That’s the reason given but really feeling sad for the lives of stray dogs in war-ravaged Baghdad. Hope the authority concerned can do some thing to help those strayed dogs instead killing them. May those killed had a good rebirth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Bigger sea animals are not as powerful as what we predict after all. Could you imagined a octopus eats a shark. Well it happens. Never underestimate smaller animals or something small. They are more powerful and fierce too. Amazing …seeing how , the octopus attacked and killed the shark just a moment. So powerful. If I did not watched this video ,i never had thought that octopus could actually eat a shark.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing . Anything is possible if we think positive and think what we can do it.

    So touching….Sasha Pejčić..such a kind soul helping all those dogs who is man best friend. Sasha has witnessed so much suffering of the streets dogs and it has affected him deeply. It seems that the dog catchers has been killing the streets dogs to be taken off .Its to much for Sasha and he decided to helped those abandoned dogs.
    For the past 5 years he has recused many doggies and started a sheltered home for them. Most of the dogs have been found and helped from the streets . Some of them are injured and he was so kind to nurse them back . Jovana Ivastanin the reporter described the animal shelter as breathtaking. Amazing the dogs all followed Sasha around and their interaction with each other. This sheltered Home for the 400 rescued dogs are running out of funds to feed them. May Sasha be helped by people to continue sheltering those dogs. May more people donates to this harmony fund to the homeless dogs.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this .

    This is always interesting to read about the holy places for pilgrimage. What attracted me the most in Wu Tai Shan is the Five Peaks. In record, these five main peaks, located in the four cardinal directions and at the central point of the mountain represent the five wisdoms of Manjushri, includes Wanghai Feng, Jinxiu Feng, Guayue Feng, Yedou Feng and Cuiyan Feng. The Five Peaks are very beautiful and I personally think it would be nice if can do contemplation and meditation on these holy and highest places in Wu Tai Shan.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline shared this detailed information about the places must visit in Wu Tai Shan.

    By practicing the religion of my choice I had to learn to accept to be hated, not to be loved, to be the butt of jokes on social media, to be alienated from friends, attacked, threats, to be avoided, called names, to have people go away whom I’ve known for years, accused of things I didn’t do, judged, expelled, ostracized, segregated and to have pure hate directed at me. This is just because I practice a religion not endorsed by the Tibetan leadership. The irony is the Tibetan leadership always calls for unity of mankind, interfaith gatherings, compassion and tolerance. So much hatred directed at me from people I don’t even know just because of my choice of religion. I’ve never hurt anyone because of my religion and I never will but I must continue my practice of my religion. It is right for me and many others. It is my reason to continue, because it’s right for me. No one should say any religion is bad because that creates segregation and isolation and hatred. If we allow that, then people can extend that discrimination and find excuses to say your color, race, background, culture, gender, sexual orientation and so on are not right. Discrimination is bad in any form. Don’t be a part of it. It is impossible for everyone to be all the same. Allow diversity for the sake of peace, understanding and happiness. When we allow this discrimination, it opens the doors to so much more variety of discrimination. We cannot allow more discrimination but we must find commonality and unity as human beings.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Shocking to read so called civilised society allow cruelty towards animals based on a folklore that has no scientific, no medical nor logical foundation. I hope the villagers who reinitiated this cruelty will face the music of the law. Thank you for this sharing.

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.

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.

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

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

    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)
