Is This True Religious Freedom?

Sep 24, 2018 | Views: 1,567

Since 1996, there has been an illegal ban placed on the practice of Dorje Shugden. Ever since then, there have been many who suffered because of this religious embargo. This ban has caused families, and friends to split and not be able to have any form of communication and it has caused a lot of distress to both Tibetans and non-Tibetans for no reason other than their practice Dorje Shugden.

It is definitely retrogressive and backward to have such things to be happening in this age and time. We are already in the 21st century yet, the actions of this religious ban is more reminiscent of the dark ages.

In the following passages we see some of the points that reveal how unethical the ban on Dorje Shugden is.

 

#1

When the ban was made known to the public, Gelug monastic communities were forced to split, and monks were coerced to give up their practices. Monasteries like Gaden and Sera monastery were forcibly divided and monks who were not willing to give up their Dorje Shugden practices unfairly expelled. H.H. the Dalai Lama shockingly was the one who personally instigated the purge, and He inflamed the monasteries even more by stating that monasteries must definitely throw out Shugden monks otherwise He will not be pleased.

Surely the actions and directions of H.H. the Dalai Lama itself is clear proof of a religious ban. If there was no ban being imposed, why would there be a need to throw the monks out of the monasteries which were their only homes? Why marginalise them? Whether a monk gives up on the practice of Dorje Shugden or not, should be a personal and voluntary decision and not one made under duress. Yet the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) forces the monks to swear out of the practice. It only shows how bigoted CTA is, how they try to harm Dorje Shugden practitioners, and push them to the limits. Many monks had no choice but to disrobe.

How is it justifiable for people to say that there is no ban when in 2008 the monks from Gaden and Sera monasteries were forced out and had to no choice but to form new monasteries, Shar Ganden and Serpom Monastery, under the protection of Indian law just so that they can continue with their Protector practice. Some people might argue that with Shugden monks being able to form their own monasteries and be independent, it can only mean that there is no ban because if there were to be a ban, these monks will not be able to form their own monasteries. However, when we think on a deeper level, we will see that there is actually no reason for these Dorje Shugden monks to break away from their mother monasteries to form a new monastery to do their practices. It is from the fact that these monks do not have that form of freedom that forces them to go on a separate way to keep their practice. In addition, the formation of Shar Ganden and Serpom was not due to the good graces of the CTA but because of the rights provided under Indian law. Had it been up to them, the CTA would criminalise the Protector practice as they eventually did in 2014.

To add salt to the wound, these monks that are Dorje Shugden practitioners are denied the Geshe Lharampa degree (the equivalent of a PhD. in Buddhist Philosophy) regardless of how qualified they might be. This is because existing Gelug universities refused to issue Geshe degrees to Shugden monks as a means discouraging the protector practice.

Shugden monks were denied even basic needs such as education. It was only through the hard work, compassion, effort and diligence of dedicated high lamas and monks of the Dorje Shugden tradition, that the new Gelug Buddhist University in Mysore was established in the year 2015, enabling Shugden monks to complete their monastic education. This new Buddhist University today is the alternative higher learning monastic institution that issues certificates to qualified Geshe from Shar Ganden and Serpom who were previously prohibited from undertaking the Geshe Lharampa training due solely to their Shugden practice. In this way, the pure tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa is being kept alive.

With H.H. the Dalai Lama being a practitioner of Buddhism and a key figure that many people look up to, you would think that there would not be any form of discrimination from Him. Yet, in all teachings given by H.H. the Dalai Lama, you will see that on the application or registration forms for the event, they place information saying that Dorje Shugden practitioners are not allowed to join the programs. It just leaves one to wonder why there is such blatant discrimination. Essentially, what the Dalai Lama and organisers are saying is that you may be a criminal, a person of ill morals or you may even be a satan worshipper and you’re welcome to attend the Dalai Lama events, but you cannot be a Dorje Shugden practitioners.

If it is true that the practice of Dorje Shugden is really so bad, why does the Dalai Lama in his compassion not allow Shugden worshippers in so that they are able to learn and turn away from the supposed ‘evil’ practices of Dorje Shugden? It clearly shows not only that there is discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners, but also that ban and marginalization is totally opposite to what H.H. the Dalai Lama is supposed to be upholding. If there was no ban and if there is no effort to marginalize a community of Buddhist simply because of their protector practice, then surely everyone will be allowed to join the teaching by H.H. Dalai Lama and organisers will not have the clause in their application form.

Instead of being protected by the CTA , the CTA criminalizes their own people just because of their religious practices. On 20th May 2014, the CTA published a list titled, “List of Dolgyal followers who protested against His Holiness the Dalai Lama in US and Europe” on their official website. In the list, are names and details of 20 Tibetans who legally demonstrated against H.H. Dalai Lama in Europe and USA, which is merely exercising their rights. The full names and pictures of these people were published and made available to the public and at the same time the CTA constantly propagandized that Shugden practitioners were traitors of the Tibetan cause knowing that by posting these details the Tibetan community will do something against those on the list. Some of the protesters, even details like their house address were published.

How can the CTA be regarded as fair and democratic and reliable government when the Tibetan people they govern live in fear merely by practicing their faith which is supposed to be protected by the CTA? It is in no way correct to have any citizen treated like a criminal just because their choice of religion.

Due to all these posters and ‘Wanted List’, the Tibetans who practiced Dorje Shugden still live in fear as they were maligned by their own government to be traitors of the people. This is another method the CTA deploys to push innocent Tibetans to give up their Dorje Shugden practice if they do not want their family to be harmed. It is utterly wrong for any government to be pushing their citizens about their choice of religion. It is like saying that because of the colour of the skin of a citizen they can be punished and ostracized. How can control and be punished for the conditions there were born into or something they are supposed to have the right to? Only the most oppressive and dictatorial regimes act against citizens because of their religion.

There have been many instances where Dorje Shugden practitioners were attacked both physically and on the social media for their practices. If there is really religious freedom, will attacks on monks and lay people be happening? There is not doubt that this discriminations and attacks are happening. The question is why isn’t the CTA supposedly a democratic government or H.H. Dalai Lama, supposedly an icon of peace and tolerance. Saying anything to stop these ongoing abuses? The simple reason is the CTA hopes that these peer pressure that is being exerted on Shugden people regardless of whether they are peaceful or violent will make Shugden practitioners abandon their faith. And so the CTA are blind to these abuses.

If there is truly no ban, why do we hear news of people breaking into a Lama’s house to attack monks in the residence? On the 27th December 2013 at 4.00am an assistant to His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche (one of the lineage lamas to Dorje Shugden practices) Gen Chonze, was making water offerings in Trijang Ladrang in Shar Gaden Monastery. Gen Chonze was then 84 years old and had been serving Trijang Rinpoche’s previous incarnation and the current incarnation for over 60 years. Gen Chonze is a simple monk and has resided in Trijang Ladrang most of his life. While making the offerings he heard a loud bang on the gate. Thinking that its practitioners coming to make prayers he then opened the door only to see five masked and gloved men armed with knives barging in to attack him. Gen Chonze had no enemies and the only reason he was attacked was because of his Shugden practice and yet the CTA insists that there are no ban and persecutions of Shugden people.

These violence and abuses against Shugden lamas and laypeople are not limited to physical violence. Almost daily Dorje Shugden practitioners receive hate messages and threats and abuses. Why is there such hatred when the Shugden practice does not harm anyone? If the CTA claims that the Tibetan people have religious freedom, then situations like this should not be happenning. There wouldn’t be hatred fuelled by the CTA against others because of their religious practice. Hatred towards Dorje Shugden practitioners is not only only by Tibetans, but also by Westerners whose love of the Dalai Lama is being used to fuel hatred against Shugden worshippers by cunning propaganda.

Monasteries and temples are places for worship. Thus there is absolutely no excuse or sense for anyone to be going there to attack monks just because they do Dorje Shugden practices. How is it right for the CTA to be paying people to create violence against Dorje Shugden practitioners when they instead sponsor all monasteries regardless of the Protector of the monastery if indeed the CTA us truly about preserving the lineage of what Buddha had taught. Why is it that only monasteries that do not practice Dorje Shugden get funding for their works? Does not Dorje Shugden monasteries teach the Buddhadharma as well? The only reason for them to not give Dorje Shugden monasteries funding is because the CTA hopes that without any form of funding, these monasteries will have no choice but to close down and not continue with their practices of Dorje Shugden.

In the video below, it clearly shows violence against monks in Gaden Monastery (Dokhang house) as they were performing prayers and puja to Dorje Shugden. The mob which consisted of paid Tibetan threw stones at monks even as they did their monthly prayers. This mob was organized by representatives of Dalai Lama in Mundgod, South India. Clearly Dorje Shugden practitioners are being treated like criminals. Many of those monks were physically hurt.

Due to the ban on Dorje Shugden, there are many lay people as well who have been affected by the ban. Either they are similarly placed on a ‘Wanted List’ or the CTA imposes such pressure on their families they literally become disowned by the family. All these are happening only because the non-Dorje Shugden people are afraid to be associated with Dorje Shugden practitioners seeing that it is a crime just to be associated with a Shugden believer.

Many times, when Dorje Shugden people meet even their closest childhood friends, they would be shunned and avoided. For fear of being associated with Dorje Shugden practitioners. Any association with Dorje Shugden practitioners, could lead to people being suspected and questioned.

In the videos below, you will see how some of the Tibetans are being denied their basic rights just because they practice Dorje Shugden.

Constantly we see evidence of separation between non-Dorje Shugden practitioners and Dorje Shugden practitioners. Why this is necessary is so that Dorje Shugden practitioners will be singled out from the crowd. This is done in order for the public to easily target those whom the CTA accuse of being against H.H. Dalai Lama and the CTA with the motivation that the public will then take actions against Dorje Shugden practitioners to stop them. Usually with this kind of separation the public would coerce the Dorje Shugden practitioners to give up their practices in various ways including violent means. Stones would be thrown into their homes, and people would break in to beat them, and so on.

Another example of CTA sponsored discrimination can be seen in Sera Jey Monastery where there is a rule requiring monks to wear a badge to declare that they do not practice Dorje Shugden. Why create such a differentiation if there is no ban to the practice?

Why isolate Shugden monks and expose them to more danger unless it is to punish them?

Often when one walks around the Tibetan settlements in India, they will be able to see notices saying that Dorje Shugden practitioners are not allowed to enter their premises. Due to this, Dorje Shugden monks are forced to go well out of the way just to get basic necessities and provisions. This makes the lives of Dorje Shugden practitioners much harder and more troublesome when it is already difficult.

This ban is not just making the lives of Dorje Shugden practitioners more difficult in this way, but in medical clinics and hospitals, there are notices that do not allow Dorje Shugden practitioners to enter. Being a non-Tibetan, we may not understand why the ban is so serious, yet from this we can tell that even the most basic of healthcare are being withheld some Tibetans just because of their religion. Thus, the Tibetans who practice Dorje Shugden will have to go to Indian clinics or hospitals to receive medical help. Often these medical services cost more than healthcare that are provided in the Tibetan settlement camps. Thus, for the poorer Tibetan Dorje Shugden practitioners, they are excluded from any form of healthcare. This shows that even from the most basic necessity that the government should be providing are denied just because these people are Dorje Shugden practitioners.

Being a government that claims to looks after their citizens, CTA has been grossly dishonest towards the Tibetans living in exile. In the constitution, it is clearly stated that every Tibetan has a right to their religion. However, the CTA undermine what they are supposed to be upholding by directing government departments to prohibit Shugden people from working in their department. Why does the CTA claim that there is religious freedom, when it is seen everywhere that Dorje Shugden practitioners are suppressed throughout all Tibetan areas?

For the full constitution, please see here.

The CTA has also done nothing to stop letters that incite violence or hatred against Dorje Shugden practitioners. If there is no ban and there is religious freedom like what the CTA has claimed, why are they not doing anything to stop these violent threads and acts against Dorje Shugden practitioners? This is especially so if H.H. the Dalai Lama were to speak against such undharmic acts. Yet, neither H.H. the Dalai Lama or the CTA have addressed the problem and instead keep saying that Dorje Shugden practices are bad.

Below are the pictures to the letter from Unite Front of Tibetan People saying that need to teach Dorje Shugden practitioners both lay people or ordained members a lesson.

For the Tibetans who have chosen not to give up their Dorje Shugden practices, they are being denied a citizenship from the Tibetan government. With this, there are many things that they are not able to do. For example, they will not be able to vote in the recent Sikyong (leader of CTA) elections. The selection of the leaders is something that affects all citizens, yet because these Tibetans are Dorje Shugden practitioners, they are precluded.

These Tibetans are not allowed to vote because they do not have proof of Tibetan citizenship vide a Green Card issued by the CTA. When they do not have a green card, they are not allowed to do many things that include getting documentations to travel commonly known as the ‘yellow pass’ (similar to a passport). These are all because they are Dorje Shugden practitioners. By right, these Tibetans should be able to become citizens of the country they are in instead of being refugees all their lives which is how the CTA wishes them to remain. Without a Green Card, they cannot do anything.

Yet, this is the case with all Dorje Shugden practitioners in the Tibetan settlements. It will be a problem for Shugden practitioners to travel anywhere when they do not have the “No Objections” letter from the CTA which is required for any Tibetan to travel abroad. The reason for CTA to do this is because they do not want Dorje Shugden practitioners to be able to travel out so that they will have the chance to spread the teachings about Dorje Shugden, and they do not want to let the rest of the world know how much Dorje Shugden practitioners are suffering.

Click to enlarge.

Even for monks, before their monk identity cards are being issued to them, they will have to swear saying that they do not practice Dorje Shugden. Without these identity cards, it would be difficult for the monks to travel overseas to teach. This is because they will not be able to obtain a religious visa to start teaching in the other countries. These are all tactics that the CTA use to stop the practice of Dorje Shugden from spreading overseas. It is just really sad to see such things happening as it is very clearly a form of religious oppression, and it is not what a government should be doing towards their own citizens.

Statement from Sera Mey and Sera Jey Monastery. Click to enlarge.

In conclusion, this ban on Dorje Shugden does not only affect Tibetan Dorje Shugden practitioners, but it affects all Dorje Shugden practitioners.

Just take for an example, when a man in the audience during a talk by Samdhong Rinpoche in New York City, USA, asked a question alluding to unfairness towards Shugden practitioners, he was stopped immediately and taken out of the hall. This man in the video is not Tibetan and yet we see how the ban has spread to affect even those who are rightful citizens of a democratic country. It shows how the CTA has influenced others to oppress Dorje Shugden practitioners as well.

Even for myself, as a Singaporean, who is not fully exposed to the severity and depths of the discrimination. I have received abuses online, and people calling me a Chinese as if that is a negative thing. How is anyone suppose to change when the race and religion is something that they are born with. It makes no sense how some westerners that supports CTA and some Tibetans act towards Dorje Shugden practitioners no matter where they are from.

Even in Singapore, there are temples like Thekchen Choling that openly display notices saying that Dorje Shugden practitioners are not welcome in their premises. Yet, Singapore is a country that promotes religious freedom and racial harmony. For major events in Singapore, all representatives of the 8 major religions in Singapore would gather together to celebrate and offer prayers. But here we see a Singaporean organization discriminating against Singaporean citizens on the instructions of the CTA. Where is the sense in that and how can that be allowed to persist?

Because of the Dalai Lama and CTA’s influence I was chased out from a shop located at Fu Lu Shou Shopping centre all because I asked if they were able to help me make a acrylic cover for a Dorje Shugden image that I had. I was cursed and chased out of the building. This is all because of the ban of Dorje Shugden. The funniest thing is that I am not even in a place that is filled with Tibetans. I am in my own homeland and in a shop that is owned by Singaporeans.

Even in my neighbouring country Malaysia, evidence of the ban towards Dorje Shugden practitioners can be seen abundantly. It is just unfair for someone to be judge based on what they practice as their religious choice. We are all human beings that can make our own choices, so why is someone’s choice more superior to the choice that we make? Why is it that we cannot practice Dorje Shugden without being cursed. Everything that is happening and people who are suffering are all because of this unethical ban that has been imposed.

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    “The 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche of Bhutan and Dorje Shugden” blog post which was published June 8, 2018 already has exactly at the moment 152,744 views!! Over 150k views!!! Amazing!! The views will keep growing as time elapses of course.

    This indicates many Bhutanse and Buddhists around the world will now know that Dorje Shugden is connected to Bhutan and their Kagyu Lineage. Dorje Shugden was promoted by the highest lama of Bhutan namely the 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche himself. So Dorje Shugden will help and protect anyone and is not sectarian as they accuse him to be. People in the Kagyu school of Buddhism also practised Dorje Shugden and Dorje Shugden assisted them lovingly. Dorje Shugden being an emanation of Manjushri will help anyone who calls upon him regardless of their background and religion.

    Good job to our writers, researchers, editors, technical team, supporting team and Kechara people who promoted this blog post on social media. Now more will come to understand how pervasive Dorje Shugden is in all the lineages of Tibetan Buddhism although the Tibetan leadership in-exile tries to hide this truth. Thank you everyone for promoting Dorje Shugden to benefit many. We were all very harmonious before the unethical ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners. Since the inception of the ban in 1996, there has been no benefits and instead so much disharmony among Tibetan Buddhists around the world. Many hundreds have spoken up about this point where we want harmony back. There should never be a ban against any spiritual practice.

    Blog post- https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=160863

    于2018年6月8日发表的《不丹国第四世夏仲仁波切与多杰雄登》的博文至今已经有 152,744次的浏览量!!也就是超过了15万次的浏览量!!这个数字肯定还会随着时间而增长。

    这表示很多不丹人和全世界的佛教徒现在已经知道了多杰雄登和不丹以及他们的噶举派传承是有紧密联系的。多杰雄登是被不丹的最高级别的喇嘛夏仲仁波切本身所推崇的。这显示了多杰雄登是会帮助和保护任何人的,而祂不是像他人所指控那样的充满宗派主义。佛教的噶举派的修行者也修持多杰雄登,而多杰雄登也很怀爱地帮助他们。多杰雄登是文殊菩萨的化身,祂将无视任何宗教和背景地去帮助任何召唤祈请祂的人们。

    我们的写作、搜集资料,编辑、技术、辅助等的人员们和推广这篇博文的克切拉人们,你们做得好!虽然流亡藏人领袖们尝试掩盖事实,但现在更多的人将了解到多杰雄登在所有藏传佛教的传承中是多么的普及了。感谢大家努力推广多杰雄登以造福大众。在这个不道德的多杰雄登禁令出现之前,我们都是很和谐融洽的。自从禁令在1996年开始之后,它为全世界的藏传佛教徒没有带来任何利益,而只有更多的不和谐。成千上万的人已经对该禁令发声,要求重建和谐。对于任何心灵修行,是从来就不该有任何禁令的。

    His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s incarnation is in Lhasa visiting. He is visiting the 350-year-old Trode Khangsar chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden. He is paying homage to the powerful statue of Dorje Shugden housed in this sacred chapel. Both the chapel and statue of Dorje Shugden were commissioned by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama. The Great 5th Dalai Lama also composed a prayer to be recited daily to Dorje Shugden.

    Dagom Rinpoche’s previous lives were great masters, scholars and practitioners of Dorje Shugden. Now this new incarnation of Dagom Rinpoche is offering gold on the face of Dorje Shugden in homage and worship to this very sacred statue of Dorje Shugden housed in Lhasa for the last 350 years. This is a very traditional Tibetan method of paying homage to holy images, which is by offering gold with prayers.

    The Tibetan leadership wrongly says if you practise Dorje Shugden you will take rebirth into the three lower realms. Hundreds of lamas from the Sakya, Kagyu and Gelugpa schools of Buddhism have practised Dorje Shugden and their incarnations returned. Many of the incarnations are recognised by His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself. So this shows if you practise Dorje Shugden, only benefits come and no harm will come. The very fact Dagom Rinpoche’s incarnation is back, is clear evidence that Dorje Shugden’s practice is beneficial.

    May Dagom Rinpoche’s current incarnation live a very long life.

    尊贵的扎贡仁波切的现任转世正在拜访拉萨。他拜访了一座供奉给多杰雄登并且拥有350年历史的护法殿”布旦康萨”。他在向这座神圣护法殿里的强大多杰雄登像顶礼。该座护法殿和多杰雄登圣像是由第五世达赖喇嘛指示而造的。伟大的第五世达赖喇嘛也亲笔撰写了多杰雄登的每日祈愿文。

    扎贡仁波切的前几世都是伟大的上师,学者兼多杰雄登的修持者。现在扎贡仁波切的现任转世在为这尊已经安奉在拉萨350年并且非常神圣的多杰雄登圣像的脸上供养金漆,以示顶礼和膜拜。这种供养金并祈愿的做法是西藏为圣像顶礼非常传统的做法。

    流亡藏人领袖们说如果你修持多杰雄登就将投生三恶道,那是错误的。佛教派系——萨迦派、噶举派、格鲁派的上百名喇嘛们都修持了多杰雄登,而且他们也都转世回来了,而其中有很多转世还是达赖喇嘛亲自认证的。这明显显示了如果你修持多杰雄登,是百利无一弊的。扎贡仁波切转世回来了,就已经是很确凿的证据显示多杰雄登的修持是有利的。

    愿今世的扎贡仁波切健康长寿。

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives is in Dharamsala, which is broken into two parts. Upper Dharamsala is where the Dalai Lama’s palace is located with his audience room and main prayer hall. It is also the location of the Dialectics School, Gaden Shartse’s guesthouse, restaurants, tourist hotels and main tourist areas.

    A short ride down takes you to the lower part of Dharamsala where the Tibetan government is located. It is the location of the Tibetan Parliament in Exile, Nechung monastery, the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, the Tibetan arts centre…it’s all in one area. And the reason why it’s split into upper and lower Dharamsala is because the area is mountainous.

    The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives was established by the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government to preserve all the ancient texts – both secular and spiritual – of Tibet and in the process, translate them into various languages like English. This book, Overview of Buddhist Tantra, by Panchen Sonam Drakpa was one of the books translated into English. What’s very interesting is that the book very clearly says that Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s previous life is Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, one of the five main disciples of Lama Tsongkhapa. It also says that after that, he was Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen.

    So the book is basically saying that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, Panchen Sonam Drakpa and Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen – the three Drakpas – are of the same mindstream.

    Now that’s very peculiar because if Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s previous life is Panchen Sonam Drakpa, the renowned composer of 45 volumes of Dharma texts, the abbot of three monasteries AND the 15th Gaden Tripa, the holder of Lama Tsongkhapa’s throne…if that’s the case, how can Panchen Sonam Drakpa take rebirth as Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and become an evil spirit and have a negative mind?

    Prior to Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, he was Panchen Sonam Drakpa and before that, he was Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, a heart disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa. How can a heart disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa reincarnate as the erudite master Panchen Sonam Drakpa, and then die and reincarnate as Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen…and then Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, due to a bad and negative prayer, become the evil spirit Dorje Shugden? How is that possible? Logically, it’s not.

    What’s incredible is that all of this was printed by the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives under the Dalai Lama’s guidance. They contradict themselves because on one hand, the Tibetan leaders say Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit. On the other hand they’re printing a book saying that Panchen Sonam Drakpa, whose later incarnation became Dorje Shugden, is of this illustrious mindstream.

    So how can the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, which is under the auspices of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government, print the translation of a book composed by the previous incarnation of a so-called evil spirit? How can they then say in the book that Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s previous life is Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, and his next life was Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen?

    Prior to the Dorje Shugden ban and controversy, everyone in Tibet knew that Dorje Shugden is Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen is Panchen Sonam Drakpa, and that Panchen Sonam Drakpa is Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen. The three Drakpas, they are one mindstream emanating again and again to benefit other beings.

    And as we all know, Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen became Dorje Shugden so it totally doesn’t make sense to call him an evil spirit, then highlight all of his previous lives as erudite masters, and publish all of this information under their own library. So you can see the contradictions. You can read all of this for yourself in Overview of Buddhist Tantra, which was printed by the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives.

    OVERVIEW OF BUDDHIST TANTRA

    GENERAL PRESENTATION OF THE CLASSES OF TANTRA,
    CAPTIVATING THE MINDS OF THE FORTUNATE ONES

    rgyud sde spyi’i rnam par bzhag pa
    skal bzang gi yid ‘phrog ces bya ba bzhugs so

    BY
    PANCHEN SONAM DRAGPA
    (Pan-chen bSod-nams grags-pa, 1478-1554)

    O Choje Sonam Dragpa Pel! (Chos-rje bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal!)
    In the vast expanse of Your bodhi-mind,
    The mind that the Buddhas have lauded for as many as
    one hundred times,
    You have developed “merit” shining like the sun.
    Through Your skill in learning, debate and writing,
    As illuminating as one hundred thousand sun rays,
    You have developed in You a complete knowledge of
    the entire sutras and tantras,
    Resembling a garden of flowers in full bloom.
    The power of Your speech is like the sun;
    The fame of your name has reached the three realms of
    this world.
    O Sonam Dragpa, the teacher of teachers!
    I bow down at your feet.

    In the vast garden of Your great teachings,
    The intelligent young people gather for
    The ‘six ultimates’ and the ‘four modes of transmission,’
    Just as they are attracted to
    The one hundred thousand types of nectar
    Dripping from a flower of one hundred petals.
    May I be able to experience
    The taste of the secret tantra!

    Panchen Choje Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen Chos-rje bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal), the holder of sutra and Vajrayana teachings, was a master whose outstanding learning and spiritual accomplishments are well known by all the learned ones in Tibet. His first incarnation came in the form of one of the five prestigious disciples of Lord Tsongkhapa (Tsong-kha-pa) and became known as Vinaya Holder (Dulzin) Dragpa Gyaltsen (Gragspa rgyal-mtshan). Then came Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal), the author of the present text. The next was Nagri Tulku Dragpa Gyaltsen (mNga’-ris sPrul-sku Grags-pa rgyal-mtshan). In this way, a line of his incarnations, each with the Dragpa (gragspa) surname, followed successively.

    Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal) was born in the 14th century in Tsetang (rTsed-thang) in the Lhoka (Lho-kha) region of Central Tibet. He entered the great seat of learning, Sera Thekchenling (Se-ra theg-chen-gling) monastic university, where he became the personal disciple of spiritual master Donyo Dangden (Dhon-yod dang-ldan) and His Holiness the Second Dalai Lama Gedun Gyatso (dGe-‘dun rgya-mtsho). Under them, he studied the entire teachings of sutra, tantra and their commentaries, and became known for his outstanding learning. He also received from them the empowerments, reading transmissions, guides and instructions of the entire body of spiritual training. On becoming the fully blessed one, the Dalai Lama appointed him the abbot of the Loseling (Blo-gsalgling) college, one of the four colleges of Drepung (‘Bras-dpung)- the most prestigious monastic university in Tibet before 1959, with over 10,000 monks on its register. He continued to be the abbot of this college for the next six years; and after him the tenure for each of his successors in this position was fixed for a period of six years, a rule that is followed even today.

    He was then appointed the head of the Gelugpa (dGe-lugs-pa) order, the throne holder of Gaden (dGa’-ldan), thus becoming the 15th regent of Lord Tsongkhapa (Tsong-khapa), the second Buddha. In his eulogy to him, Khedrub Gelek Pelsang (mKhas-grub dGe-legs dpal- bzang) says:

    O Lama, the second successor of the Unsubduable One,
    The regent of the Lord of Dharma,
    You are the one who made the virtuous qualities thrive;
    You are the one who ascended to the golden throne uplifted
    by the fearless lions.
    May Your success thrive forever!

    He continued to be the throne holder for the next seven years, during which time he promoted the spread of Lord Tsongkhapa’s (Tsong-kha-pa) precious teachings, the Gelug (dGe-lugs) tradition, across the land in all directions. He also paid special attention to the practice of monastic rules and the learning and meditation of Buddhism in the monasteries such as Sera (Se-ra), Drepung (‘Bras-spungs), Kyomolung (sKyo-mo-lung), Phagmo Chode (Phag-mo chos-sde), Nyeding (Nye-sdings), Ödna (’Od-sna) and Chöde Rinchen (Chos-sde rin-chen) etc. and improved them to a great extent. He taught the Third Dalai Lama Sonam Gyatso (bSod-nams rGya-mtsho) as the latter’s spiritual master. It was from him that the Dalai Lama received the name Sonam (bSod-nams).

    His contributions in the literary field are enormous; and, indeed, they are the most valuable of all his contributions. Tsongkhapa (Tsong-kha-pa) has rightly said:

    Of all one’s deeds,
    The ‘deeds of speech’ are the most valuable.

    Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal) was a person with an extraordinary talent for teaching, debate and writing. In his colophon to Bu mey chi don zab don sel wey dron mey (dBu ma’i spyi don zab don gsal ba’i sgron me), he wrote:

    In the field of teaching, I am [next to none!] Knowing that
    I would outdo them in this field, Arya Asanga and his
    brother transmigrated into another realm.

    In the field of debate, I am [next to none!] Knowing that
    I would find out the areas they had contradicted and
    that I would examine them and put forth my arguments,
    the logician Dignaga (Digh-naga) and Dharmakirti tactfully
    bypassed me.

    In the field of writing, I am [next to none!] [In my eyes,]
    Arya-sura was just good at spreading the works, which
    are like ‘disputes~ between an insect and a field.’

    I am the learned man. Peerless in the field of teaching,
    debate and writing!

    For some this passage might sound utterly nonsensical, but the most learned master of our age, the talented teacher, logician and writer, the late tutor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Yongdzin Trijang Dorjechang (Yongs-‘dzin Khri-byang rDorje-‘Chang), said: “Now, some people of our time, who consider themselves learned scholars, think that this is utter nonsense; but they are wrong.”

    Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal) wrote over 45 volumes of books dealing with many different subjects, such as the commentaries on the sutras and tantras, the saddhana manuals of the tutelary deities, history, religious history and so forth. Among these, one that is very important for all who wish to learn and meditate on the path-of the practical aspect of Buddhism in general and that of Vajrayana in particular is the Leg shey gyu de chi nam par shagpa kelsang gi yi trod (Legs bshad rgyud sde spyi’i rnam par bzhag pa skal bzang gi yid ‘phrod). In this book, he has explained precisely how the four tantras differ from one another. He has also fully described the stages of the two spontaneous path practices of the Vajrayana tradition, dealing with the ‘six ultimates’ and the ‘four modes of transmission’, thus interpreting without mistake the intention of Adhi-Buddha Vajradhara.

    May the reprint of this text, which the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives is publishing herewith, bring peace and happiness in this world!

    The past 20 years, has just been a series of escalating denial of freedom for Dorje Shugden people and practitioners. Every exception can be broken just to limit and control Dorje Shugden, its almost like there is no such thing as taboo when it comes to discriminating against Dorje Shugden people.

    Some have said, the formation of Shar Gaden and Serpom is due to religious freedom, this is further from the truth, if freedom to practice was present in Gelug monasteries in India, no monks need to secede from the current monasteries.

    Appliqué thangka of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, who is the previous incarnation of Dorje Shugden. The thangka dates possibly to the 19th Century, and it can be found in Erdene Zuu Monastery, considered by many to be the most important and oldest monastery in Mongolia. In the lower portion of the thangka are Yellow Dzambala, Six-Armed Mahakala and Kalarupa.

    This is the Wikipedia definition of religious freedom “Freedom of religion is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or community, in public or private, to manifest religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship, and observance without government influence or intervention. It also includes the freedom to change one’s religion or beliefs.” From the ten facts laid down in the article, it is obvious that the CTA and Dalai Lama’s followers are violating the freedom of religion.

    On the other hand, Dalai Lama is the Nobel Peace Prize 1989 Laurette because “…He has instead advocated peaceful solutions based upon tolerance and mutual respect in order to preserve the historical and cultural heritage of his people. The Dalai Lama has developed his philosophy of peace from a great reverence for all things living and upon the concept of universal responsibility embracing all mankind as well as nature. In the opinion of the Committee the Dalai Lama has come forward with constructive and forward-looking proposals for the solution of international conflicts, human rights issues, and global environmental problems.” which now really sound like a mockery in the plight of his own oppressed people.

    A Daily Request for Wealth, Peace and Protection

    Composed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

    In the heavens there are myriad manifestations of the divine. All those manifestations specifically show us different aspects of divinity in order to be of benefit to all living beings. All the rupakaya forms of the divine have compassion, skillful means and wisdom. We invoke upon them whether we are happy, sad, down, lost, fulfilled, confused, empty, and during the whole range of emotions we constantly experience due to an untrained mind.

    Understanding our nature, Great Wisdom Being Dorje Shugden, therefore all the more so, please hold us close to your bosom as an only child to a parent.

    Though the manifestations of the divine need no offerings and gifts from us, we offer you supreme Manjushri Dorje Shugden a libation of tea, incense and mantras, in order to ask you to bless us, to be a part of our lives, to abide in our dwellings and to give us signs, omens and portents of both good and bad. When the negative arises, quell them immediately. Please increase the positive for my weary and worn mind as I lay my hopes in you.

    When difficulties, problems and confusion arise, we ask you, who is but the culmination of all that is powerful, holy and omniscient to bless myself, family, loved ones, environment and even my pets. May I see wisdom, find hope, and be at peace.

    I request you, O Divine Bhagavān Dorje Shugden, who wears a round dome hat and the three robes of a saffroned bhikshu, who wields a sword of liberty, justice and wisdom and clutches a wish-fulfilling jewel, who rides on a supreme lion of subjugation of all that is negative, to fulfill my wishes. I understand my wishes may not be the best, so I surrender to your wisdom for the outcome though it may not be what I have in mind. Please bless myself and everyone that we may enter into the supreme city of liberation.

    Great Bhagavān Dorje Shugden, I request you sincerely from my heart to be a part of my life, bless my home, and grant me wisdom, solace and comfort, that I might be of service to others without agenda, and that I may focus out onto others and not be fixated on myself, creating more problems for all that I hold dear.

    Bless me to become kinder, wiser, more compassionate, tolerant and very forgiving to all those who hurt and love me. In order to become close to you, Dorje Shugden, we must surrender the banal. We must abandon fixed views, projections and rigidity. Lastly, in my final moment when I leave this plane of existence, only the positive actions I have done will matter as everything and everyone will be left behind. Let me realise this and act upon this now! At this crucial moment, please may I have a vision of yourself, the powerful and merciful Dorje Shugden, to take me to where I may course in the sky to continue my journey of spiritual waxing.

    I offer you saffron-coloured tea and my faith to fulfill my prayers and gain siddhis. By reciting your mantra, may healing, peace, love, long life, protection and perfect view of sunyata arise.

    Mantra of fulfillment, peace and wisdom:

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

    (It is good to recite this mantra daily as much as you like or your timing allows.)

    I dedicate this supreme heartfelt prayer to the all-knowing Celestial and Supreme Protector Dorje Shugden, that I may quickly become a being of light, compassion, love and enlightenment.

    Please play the audio included here to follow along with the prayer.

    The ban on Dorje Shugden practitioners are so apparent and the CTA can proudly said that no ban is imposed. The 10 points above clearly stated the discrimination and segregation faced by the practitioners since 1996. Not only the monks but all the people living in exile are affected and suffer due to the mistreatment. In these days and age, no government can take away religious freedom from their people and clearly CTA does not demonstrate themselves as a democratic government as they claimed. May HH Dalai Lama resolve this matter soon. It is more than 20 years and the practitioners are still suffering.

  12. so kin hoe (KISG) on Oct 3, 2018 at 6:33 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the article written by Vinnie that points out the negative impacts face by thousands of Tibetan Buddhism practitioners due to the ban of Dorje Shugden. Those monks, who are faithfully practicing Dorje Shugden despite facing numerous pressures from the ban, were expelled from their monasteries and yet they were not given any further assistance but to build their new monastery on their own. This incident has proven to us that there is no compassion or kindness shown to the expelled monks and nevertheless, the CTA (Central Tibetan Administration)’s governance is not aligned with historical Buddha’s teachings and they do not carry themselves as true Buddhists.

    Further, Dorje Shugden practitioners are being barred from attending to any of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama’s teachings or programs, is a clear and obvious proof that the democracy stated in the CTA’s legislature is not fully executed. Since His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is the emanation of Buddha of Compassion, Chenrezig or Kuan Yin, all living beings including the criminals, bandits, nice people, bad people, poor or rich people, etc, should be allowed to attend to any of teachings given by the Dalai Lama so that everyone can meet with Buddhadharma teachings, learn, practice and apply the teachings into their lives for the betterment towards world peace. However, the real situation with the ban of Dorje Shugden goes to the wrong, opposite direction of peace and harmony.

    To worsen the situation due to the ban of Dorje Shugden, many Dorje Shugden practitioners are being attacked violently whether physically, verbally or mentally as there are Dorje Shugden practitioners who get hurt by the physical attack, many are being discriminated, verbally abused, not allowed to receive formal education, disallowed from receiving the medical aid in hospital and treated unfairly because of what they are practicing in the aspect of religion. Does every Dorje Shugden practitioner deserve with all this kind of unjust, unlawful and harsh treatment from the public all the times? Definitely not, if we still call ourselves as people who respect and believe in democracy.

    May the ever compassionate and respected His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama lift the ban of Dorje Shugden soonest possible to stop the discrimination and attacks endured by many Dorje Shugden practitioners, as well as for the growth of Buddhadharma towards world peace.

    Thank you with folded hands,

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 asssistants of his mandala.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokitesvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    The Tibetan leadership (CTA) in Dharamsala, North India has instituted the ban against Dorje Shugden for the last 20 years. It has caused much sufferings ,disharmony and monastic communities were divided . Monks were forced to give up their practices and monks who were refused to give up their practices were expelled. The Tibetan leadership even forced the monks to swear out of the practice. Monks were denied even basic needs such as education, medical benefits, and public services to name a few. Is very heart breaking to read about all this discrimination and segregation happening at this centuries. There were much evidence there was definitely a ban and no religious freedom yet the CTA denied the claims saying that there are no ban. May HH Dalai Lama please lift the ban as the ban of Dorje Shugden is unnecessary and illogical. Please give religious freedom and allows one to choose what one like to pray.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    In this video, a nice couple is being targeted and attacked just because they are pagan faith. They are Wiccan and the nice lady is a practising elemental witch, but they are being perceived to be bad people and hurting children, although none of that is true and they are being attacked for their faith. This is also another example of what Dorje Shugden people go through especially in Dharamsala, India because the Tibetan Leadership has put a notice on their official site stating that Shugden practitioners are bad and demon worshippers which is completely untrue. Hence, daily Shugden practitioners are being persecuted and if you are not there in Dharamsala, you get online abuse like what H.E. Tsem Rinpoche receives daily as well as myself and other Kecharians who are openly practising what our Guru gave us.

    Is this kind of discrimination and violence acceptable in this day and age when there is religious freedom? Why are these people allowed to do this crime? Why is the Tibetan Leadership acting like a dictatorship and attacking others of a different faith? They do it indirectly and encourage this hatred because they do nothing, say nothing and have a page talking against Shugden on their official website. That is a clear indication there is a ban and discrimination against Shugden people.

    In this video is a police officer being discriminated for his Wiccan religion and he is going to sue the state because he was told it was mandatory for him to attend a Christian gathering. There is supposed to be freedom of religion, so why is it okay for a group of people to force other people to join, pray and believe their religion? And what gives them the authority to tell people what to believe or not to believe in? This is a dictatorship type of leadership, not a democratic one at all. And this is exactly the same question I would like to ask the Tibetan Leadership and those who come on our social media wall to abuse us and call us names and vulgarities because we practice Dorje Shugden. Watch what the guy says in the video.

  22. Valentina Suhendra on Jan 24, 2018 at 9:25 pm

    I’ve just attached a video here on a lady reading about “the Persecution of Women in Witchcraft”. It is stated that in the early 16th century there was a mass execution of witchcraft. In the year 1515 in Geneva Switzerland, they burned 500 witches at the stake.In 1526, 1000 witches in Italy were executed. In 1571 witch hunt spreads across France.In total it is estimated from 1500 – 1600, there were 50 – 80,000 suspected witches executed.

    Religious persecution in any way is wrong, look at how many lives were taken because people decide to discriminate on others and persecute them just because they do not follow your belief system. This is exactly what Dorje Shugden practitioners are facing today as well when the Tibetan leadership keeps on harping and silently encouraging their people to discriminate and ostracised Shugden practitioners which we can see from all the above online abuse. Is this okay in this 21st century, is this what H.H. the Dalai Lama advocates – religious tolerance? I think not.

    Everyone has rights to practise what they like. Those who practise witchcraft has their rights to practise but they are not allowed to voice out their concerns, fearing to be treated differently just like most Dorje Shugden people.

  24. Pastor Adeline Woon on Jan 24, 2018 at 9:15 pm

    Taken away the rights to purchase items for witchcraft is the same as burning the witch for practising their religion. It is just a manifestation of different types of witch hunt and banning the sale of certain items is the same as stopping them from practising a certain ritual that is the same as taking their rights away. This scenario is the same as what Dorje Shugden people face also.

  25. Pastor Adeline Woon on Jan 24, 2018 at 9:15 pm

    This is another proof of discrimination that is similar to Dorje Shugden people. The witchcraft people do not get to purchase their religious practise items online because there is no law that protects their rights on what they can purchase and what not they cannot.

    Despite the founding fathers’ effort to give Americans religious freedom, the Wiccans and Pagans are denied their right, such as to have Chaplains to perform ceremonies, receiving books and materials and so on in prison. It is not fair and this is the kind of discrimination Dorje Shugden practitioners faces. Tibetans in exile are supposed to be ruled under democracy, but they are denied their rights of religious freedom. This is not fair.

  27. Pastor Shin Tan on Jan 24, 2018 at 9:04 pm

    This is another example of religious discrimination. Wicca was accused to be related to Satan, which is not true. Wiccans are being rejected from being able to participate in the governmental system as they are not a member of the mainstream Judeo-Christian religion.Similarly, Dorje Shugden is accused to be a demon/ evil spirit, and that Shugden practitioners are not allowed to participate in the system – they cannot work in governmental jobs, they are denied travel documents, they are not denied medical treatment, and the members of the public are advised to not be associated with them.

    This video shows how Christians in Nigeria face enormous persecution, similar to what Dorje Shugden people are facing.Just like what Bishop Mike Moses said in the video, they are being persecuted “in your own country, your own community”, and that’s worse than being persecuted by others.

    • Valentina Suhendra on Jan 24, 2018 at 10:06 pm

      This man’s dilemma is similar to what Dorje Shugden practitioners are experiencing. Even if the Dalai Lama has discouraged Dorje Shugden practice, those who choose to retain their practice should still have the right to do so without being penalized, without being discriminated, abused, attacked and harassed day in day out. Religious Freedom is every human’s right and should be respected, when the Tibetan Leadership stay silent when Shugden practitioners are being attacked, it is clear they condone it. So how can Tibetan Leadership claim to be democratic when they are not and how can they point the finger and blame others for human rights abuse when they do so themselves with their very own people? Illogical, injustice and unacceptable in this day and age!

      This is similar to what Dorje Shugden practitioners are experiencing in Tibetan settlements. Once they are found out that they are a Dorje Shugden practitioner, they would be a target for discrimination (e.g., denied service in the public places), some even target attacked. And if you are not in Dharamsala, you will be targeted and attacked online with vulgarities and all kinds of derogatory slurs.

      Any form of discrimination is wrong and should be discouraged and stopped. How can we discriminate people base on their religion, just because we dislike their religion? This is pure prejudice and hatred, so how can this be considered good and right for those executing such persecution? And this is exactly the same mentality the Tibetan Leadership has and encourage their people to attack Shugden practitioners. This is the kind of hatred that cause division, war, and suffering. How can one religion claim to be better than the other in the name of “God”? How can this be considered compassion?

    Clearly Religion and Politic cannot mix. It creates havoc as in the case of Dorje Shugden persecution that is running for 20 long years, it separates family, friends, monasteries, gurus and create disharmony and disunity.

    What a shame CTA claims to be democratic and instead of protecting her people it violates its own fundamental principle against religious freedom.

    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.

    This article summarizes many example of persecution and discrimination on Dorje Shudgen people. That the ‘advice’ from the Dalai Lama created so much disruption to the Gelug monasteries and institution, Tibetans and practitioners of Je Tsongkhapa’s tradition.

    Dorje Shudgen is not a mere spirit, but a Buddha which is why despite many lamas trying to harm, destroy it with fire pujas, Dorje Shudgen is still here protecting sincere practitioners of Dorje Shudgen and Lamas.

  38. Pastor KH Ng on Jul 18, 2016 at 3:25 pm

    I thought my religion is free to be practice by anyone…….until I discovered it is a banned religion. The ban is by the supposedly “head” of the religion.

    My religion in Vajrayana Buddhism of the Gelug denomination and in particular the Lineage that stems from Pabongka Rinpoche to my Guru Tsem Rinpoche. The supposed head of Tibetan Buddhism is His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama…at least he is the regarded as the secular head. Each of the 4 major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, the Gelug, Nyingma, Sakya and Kagyu have their own spiritual head but the since the 5th Dalai Lama, the house of the Dalai Lama has assumed control of the politics and by extension spiritual control of these schools.

    Since 1996, the Dalai Lama imposed a ban of the Protector Dorje Shugden practiced by my Lineage as passed on by Gurus to disciples; resulting in the practitioners being marginalised and causing much sufferings as this article testifies to.

    The main points here are that in Tibetan Buddhism, since its founding by Padmasambhava, the disciples received practices from their Gurus and the practices cannot be stopped unless given permission by the Guru; and the Guru is the root all attainments meaning the relationship with the Guru is the most important aspect of the practice. Hence, if the Guru have passed on, the practice cannot be stopped.
    As such, with the Dalai Lama’s ban, many practitioners cannot stop the practice because of these 2 reasons, i.e., either their Gurus have passed on; or the Gurus’ Gurus have passed on or more importantly it will break the “samaya” or spiritual relationship with the Guru.

    As the majority of Dorje Shugden practitioners have Gurus other than the Dalai Lama, who passed the practice to them ; the Dalai Lama cannot stop, much less ban the practice given by others’ Gurus. All spiritual reasons given by the Dalai Lama can be refuted logically easily; leaving only politics to be the only reason for the ban. Furthermore, there are other religion practiced by Tibetan i.e. Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Bon etc, and is not banned, the ban of the Dorje Shugden practice is a form of targeted political persecution and impediment on the freedom of the practice of religion.

    So the conclusion, all we want is RELIGIOUS FREEDOM!!!

  39. Datuk May on Jul 17, 2016 at 4:07 pm

    Dorje Shugden devotees either monastic or lay practitioners are not fanatical nor that there is not basis for their devotion in propitiating this Buddha Protector. However, there is so much discrimination against them that as being Dorje Shugden practitioners who practise with compassion and harmony have kept quiet about all the sufferings that they have endured.

    I rejoice that this article has articulately put forwards the 10 points detailing the “laws” and prohibitions against Dorje Shugden devotees and if read with fairness in mind, the BAN is real and must be removed.

    May the BAN be lifted so that Tibetan Buddhism will fall in line with democratic 21st century.

      Thank you Shane for your comment. The picture that you have posted really speaks a thousand words. It is indeed true that this religious persecution by the CTA has been on going for so long. There is no ending to this situation.

      What the CTA have done and is doing is really horrible. They do things that are behind the scenes to create trouble for Dorje Shugden practitioners. They have split so many friends and family members. This persecution should stop immediately and not carry on anymore.

  41. Louise Lee on May 16, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    谢谢 Vinnie 的分享。

    其实每次看到关于多杰雄登的报道都会有一股很难解释的心情。

    希望慈悲的观音菩萨达赖喇嘛尊者,尽快地把禁令解除吧! 当年因为简单的一句话, 就让全世界 Ban 了多杰雄登, 今天您也可以把这解除的。

    这禁令让大家饱受伤害了。难道慈悲的您希望看到这一切的发生吗? 难道您愿意让 CTA 且需的胡作非为吗?

    何谓宗教自由呢? 在佛教大典里面宣誓是对的吗?那么没有宣誓, 没有得到徽章的朋友就不可以上学,看医生,买东西,甚至想要找个店铺为自己的多杰雄登护法做个美美的 acrylic casing 也不可以吗? 为什么一个宗教会搞到这样?宗教不是教导我们 World peace live in harmony 吗?这跟一般没有信仰的朋友有什么分别呢?

    如果有一天,我住的地方地震,我快要死去。。。拯救队来到我面前,看到我抱着多杰雄登佛像,他们就会放弃救我出来吗?

    我在马来西亚土生土长,我国闻名是一个多元种族的国家,如果我们也搞分裂, 那么我国不久会四分五裂吗? 难道我是华侨,就不可以到清真的餐馆用餐吗?我生病了, 难道不可以到政府医院去看病吗?

    谢谢我的父母带我来到这里,让我可以有自己的选择。 国家让人民拥有自己的信仰与风俗。

    不喜欢多杰雄登的朋友, 醒醒吧! 不要被人蒙着眼睛了, 出来看看世界吧! 那么执著为什么?

    • Vinnie Tan on Jul 3, 2016 at 9:33 pm

      Well said Louise. Whatever that is done by the CTA is inhumane. If as the citizens of a certain country/state we cannot rely on our own government, then who else can we rely on.

      It is just like when we are overseas, anything happens, we will go to our own embassies. Reason being that it is the right for us as citizens to get help from our government when we do not know where to go. However, for the case of these Tibetan Dorje Shugden practitioners, they have no where to go or no one to look after them. They are no one just because they practice Dorje Shugden. Why, it is simply because their governments do not recognise them due to the fact that they are Dorje Shugden practitioners. It is sad in that way that their government does things like this to sabotage their own citizens.

  42. Pavara Lam on May 8, 2016 at 10:58 pm

    The Dalai Lama has said that there was no violence against Dorje Shugden monk, but the 27th december attack proved him wrong. The attack couldn’t have been something which some random outsiders did, but rather members/allies of the CTA. The CTA has a reputation for organizing attacks on Dorje Shugden Monasteries and people.

    The Dalai Lama claims that there is no ban, but yet Dorje Shugden monks are restricted from buying provisions from stores. As a result of this monks sometimes have to travel long distances just to get provisions. Often the distance to bigger towns are too far to travel by foot and thus the monks have to hire a rickshaw to ferry them to the bigger towns, hiring a rickshaw means that the monks have to fork out extra money for the ride to the town and the ride back.

    Those are just a few of the problems the Dorje Shugden monks face daily and there are many more problems which I haven’t even mentioned yet.

    To the CTA: Please end the cruelty to Dorje Shugden monks and restore harmony and unity to the community.

    • Joy Kam on May 10, 2016 at 5:25 am

      Nice comment Pavara Lam. You write well and should write more. Like hearing your thoughts and what you said is absolutely true about how the ban has affected the lives of Shugden people on a daily basis. How can something so simple as to going to a sundry shop become such a problematic issue? And yet they keep saying there is no ban on Shugden. Like real! If there really was no ban then why is buying your daily necessities becomes impossible? Like you said, this is just one example how the ban on Dorje Shugden has affected so many people.

    • Vinnie Tan on May 13, 2016 at 12:47 am

      Very well written Pavara. It is true that with what the CTA claims and what is happening is all not true. Yet, there are so many evidence that is constantly around us that proves otherwise.

      Even from the very fact that monks are being thrown out of their monasteries show that there is a ban. It is a very good question to constantly have in our minds to think why is it said that there is no ban when the Dorje Shugden practitioners’ basic rights are all removed.

  43. Edwin Tan on Apr 26, 2016 at 1:27 pm

    Dear Vinnie,

    Very well-written and explained article of how Dorje Shugden practitioners are being treated. We are in the 21st century. We are in the NOW. We are in such advanced times..yet Tibetans and other nationals are still stuck in their old mindset of discrimination.

    Reminds me of how Black people were discriminated by White people in USA a very LONG time ago. Even US have moved way past discrimination. In this modern age of free speech, free rights.. CTA is sure doing a good job of “that”.

    I agree with you totally how Dorje Shugden practitioners in India and denied of their basic necessity, basic healthcare and basic welfare to be care of. Shows clearly the mentality of the ruling government of CTA.

    Even Satan worshippers, or worshippers of the occult are given more freedom and less ostracisation from others.

    If my Lord Buddha Dorje Shugden is treated as a spirit, why haven’t the people who practiced His practice fought back? Why are they the ones being hurt, hacked, thrown stones at, given verbal abuses? Satan worshippers played / sacrificed certain individuals. Have Dorje Shugden practitioners done so? The only thing I have seen so far are that they kept quiet, practiced diligently what their Guru told them, showed peaceful demonstrations through LEGAL means, and nothing at ALL to harm others WHO harmed them.

    They are a better display of what TRUE BUDDHISTS should behave.

    I do implore everyone to think TRULY of how an actual FREEDOM should be like.

    Once again, thank you Vinnie, for such well-thought out article.

    • Vinnie Tan on May 13, 2016 at 2:15 am

      Thank you so much for your comment Edwin. It is very true that with times being so advanced, yet we Dorje Shugden practitioners still receive so much hate everywhere. People may say that by looking at countries that are not as advanced, we are being biased with the situation of them having discrimination against one group of people. Yet, we can examine first world countries like UK where there are people doing the same thing. Protesting against centres that do Dorje Shudgen practices.

  44. Li kheng on Apr 25, 2016 at 12:08 pm

    Thank you for this well presented post that clearly indicates the existence of a very damaging ban on Dorje Shugden. The explanations are very clear and detailed. Most importantly, solid evidence is provided for readers to see for themselves and decide what is the right thing to do.

    Dorje Shugden practitoners have consistently presented their case in this manner: respectful of the intelligence of the public by presenting information and open communication. Unfortunately, I have not experienced the same from the CTA and their anti- Shugden followers. They blatantly deny facts despite evidence presented by internatonal journalists. They also do not provide supporting points or evidence to substantiate their denial. This is true acts of arrogance, they could not care less for what others do. Maybe it is becuase they have gotten what they want for themselves and it does not matter to them what happens to Tibet and Tibetans from here on.

    This is very scary.

  45. Sofi on Apr 22, 2016 at 6:14 pm

    Thank you Vinnie for this well written article on the discrimination on Dorje Shugden practitioners due to the ban by HH Dalai Lama. So much unnecessary sufferings had been lambasted onto the Dorje Shugden practitioners.
    There are so many logical evidences that His Holiness is wrong in imposing the ban and yet his followers do not question this blatant wrongness. I remember Buddha Shakyamuni had taught that we should question if we are not comfortable with something. Does that mean that the followers of His Holiness are comfortable in this terrible wrongness and the terrible deeds that followed.
    His Holiness, a recipient of the Noble Peace Prize, always preaches compassion and love for all. And yet, he could segregate Dorje Shugden practitioners from “all”. What more, his ardent followers could use such vulgarity, force and threats as upholders of Buddha’s teachings???
    Sad indeed that Buddhism has been degenerated to this state by His Holiness’s ban and his followers.
    With folded hands, may His Holiness swiftly manifest his true nature and bring a halt to this degeneration by lifting the Dorje Shugden ban and reuniting all true practitioners.
    Thank you H.E Tsem Rinpoche for bringing us the truth in your gentle compassion even in the face of so much horrible barrage of vulgarity towards you.

    • Vinnie Tan on Apr 26, 2016 at 10:36 pm

      Thank you Sofi for your comment. It is really amazing how some people will choose specifically on what to follow and what not to follow. What they are doing and claiming as Buddhist ways are all not true. The Buddha has never thought us violence. What is being taught to us is how to have transformation and be a better person.

      Yet, when these people criticise and look down upon Dorje Shugden practitioners. They are not even following what H.H. the Dalai Lama has taught us. In no teaching of H.H. the Dalai Lama will we find information that is said to show violence towards others. It is always about love, kindness and compassion.

      Thus, it is ridiculous for some non-Dorje Shugden practitioners to carry out what they are doing in H.H. the Dalai Lama’s name. Reason being that what is done by them and what is taught, does not match. By the end of the day, with what they are doing, it will only push people away from H.H. the Dalai Lama.

      Regards,
      Vinnie

  46. Chris Chong on Apr 21, 2016 at 11:25 pm

    Dear Vinnie,

    Thank you for summarising up all the evidence and logical points of how this “advice” against Dorje Shugden Practice from the Dalai Lama is indeed a Ban.

    This ban had been tearing the Buddhist community apart in a very ugly way. Buddhism are suppose to promote love and peace and not discrimination and segregation. Even if we do not agree to another person’s belief system, we still respect them because that’s what Buddha taught 2600 years ago. We don’t go around telling Christians or Muslims off because we respect them. But why when it comes to Shugden issue, we have to act so harshly and not to mention that we all are in the same religion.

    This Ban is illogical and do more harm than good. Any reasonable and non-fanatic Buddhist would be able to see clearly the whole situation even if they are not Shugden practitioners and the ban doesn’t affects them.

    Dear Your Holiness Dalai Lama, please lift Shugden Ban.

    Chris

    • Vinnie Tan on Apr 26, 2016 at 9:06 pm

      Dear Chris,

      Thank you for your comment. It is true that as a shugden practitioner, we are always being put in a spot where we are being criticised by our faith. Yet, when we speak up about it, others criticise us for being rude when we do not mean so. What we want to do is only to have religious freedom and not have others criticising what we do. It is a natural reaction that when someone speaks negatively about something or some quality we care, we will retaliate. So, why is it that for others they can do that, but when Dorje Shugden practitioners do that we are rude and violent? It makes no sense at all.

      All I hope is for more people to know how Dorje Shudgen practitioners are affected by this ban that is being imposed because of an advice from H.H. Dalai Lama.

      I mean no disrespect to H.H. Dalai lama and I respect him fully. I just hope that this ban will be lifted so that all Dorje Shugden practitioners do not have to suffer any further.

      Regards,
      Vinnie

    这篇文章涵盖了艮尼玛的生平、修持、神通、趣事等,让读者对艮尼玛有个整体的认识之余,也对他的特点有深刻的印象。对我来说,艮尼玛最启发我的地方是他只专注于一项修持,全心全意的,一辈子只专注于大威德金刚修持,他占卜、治病等靠的都是大威德金刚修持赐予的加持力。艮尼玛透过本身的成就,向世人证明了佛菩萨的全知和全能。也让我们知道,若真正要修持某种法门,任何一位佛菩萨的法门都是好的,都是全面的,所以不需要什么都学一些,什么都不精,搞到最后一事无成。

    The reasons why you must clean your room are as follows: If you invite your guru or some officials to your home, you would give your room a good sweep, wouldn’t you! Similarly, when you invite your guru, the victorious ones, and their children into your room [in the course of your meditations], you should clean it out of respect for them.

    Most people don’t like to be put in a difficult or challenging situation. It gives a lot of stress and worries. The emotional trauma makes people feel terrible. However, this suffering can become something positive if we change how we perceive it. Suffering can make us grow if we decide to find the root cause of it and do something about it. As a result, we can be out of this suffering. Suffering can make us a better person because we don’t want others to go through what we have gone through. Instead of avoiding suffering, why don’t we embrace it because we can become better as we are going through it?

    Do you know what is off-the-grid living? Off-the-grid living is when people choose to live without the support of remote infrastructure, such as an electrical grid. Most of the time it means living away from the city as well. Some people choose the off-the-grid lifestyle to maintain their financial freedom; some because they want to be closer to nature. Would you choose this lifestyle?

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing this interesting information about this spirit that can be one of the causes of Dorje Shugden ban. It is not a surprise to know that the Tibetan government had caused another human being to reincarnate as an evil spirit that wanted their downfall because they had wrongly persecuted him with such a cruel and inhumane way. Any human being that dies in that kind of circumstances will have a lot of powerful negative emotions.

    The modus operandi of the Tibetan government has been the same since the 5th Dalai Lama’s time. They just eliminate whoever they think is threatening their power and in Nyatrul’s case, they killed an innocent man with a cruel way. The karma that is created by the government created the cause for Nyatrul to be able to interfere with Nechung’s trances and there is nothing the Tibetan government can do.

    This shows us that karma works in its own way and even a powerful Dharma protector’s oracle can be inhibited by an evil spirit. We reap what we sow. Now the Tibetan government have to suffer the risk of getting false information from the Nechung oracle until their karma exhausted. They should not have trusted the advice when the oracle spoke against the practice of Dorje Shugden which is around for 400 years without any problem.

    Princess Zina was wild, temperamental, very difficult and controlling. Who in her status would not be like that? But she realised there is a better place to go than all the luxury she had been enjoying. She truly understood her attitude, her way of thinking, her characters were not going to bring her anywhere so she pushed herself to change and she made it. Apart from pushing herself to change, she also did a lot of very beneficial works to support and spread Dharma. She had to do a lot more good works to make up the wrongs she had done in the past.

    Even though it was not described in the story how much difficulty or struggling she had to go through in her transformation process but I believe it was not easy. How she pulled herself through was her trust in her lama and her faith in Dharma. If someone like Princess Zina who was so difficult and had everything she could have had in the world can transform into a humble person and eventually ascend to Kechara Paradise, who are we to say we cannot change?

    Beautiful art rime thangka painted patiently with matching colours. Naropa, Vajra Yogini, and Dorje Shugden forms a beautiful art piece. Naropa is one of the most prominent and authoritative Indian mahasiddhas and masters of mahahudra and tantra. Vajrayogini is a Tantric Buddhist female Buddha and a ḍakini while Dorje Shugden the Dharma Protector who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. Together they depicted a beautiful and powerful amazing thangka.

    How shall I hate you today?

    This blog post is a must visit to see how much Rinpoche had been targetted with vulgarity and threats just for practicing enlightened Dorje Shugden which had been given by Rinpoche’s holy Guru, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Just because Rinpoche stood up with humble appeals for lifting of the illogical ban on this authentic protector practice, Rinpoche receives rude taunts and allegations of being a Chinese spy. It is very glaring how “monks” and “nuns” are not practitioners when they can go down to that level of online assault against an attained Lama like Rinpoche. May Lord Dorje Shugden’s light shine bright and far to bless them with mental clarity to see the wrongs. Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha!

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.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss 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
