Since 1996, practitioners of the Tibetan Buddhist Protector Dorje Shugden have been unfairly segregated, ostracised, suppressed and persecuted by the Tibetan leadership, also known as the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) who are based in Dharamsala, North India. For over 20 years, Shugden practitioners have suffered from discrimination simply because of their choice of religious faith, and the unjust, oftentimes violent treatment is well-documented.

The Tibetan leadership proclaim themselves to be a democratic administration, but what kind of democratic leader publishes information condemning a religion and its believers on his administration’s official website? Would any democratic government amend its nation’s constitution to single out a religious belief and ‘advise’ against its practice? And would any democratic administration constitutionally condemn practitioners of a religious denomination as “criminals in history“?

The Tibetan leaders deny the existence of a Dorje Shugden ban. They claim that they merely advise against Dorje Shugden practice and that Shugden practitioners have the freedom to practise whatever religion they wish. But in all truth, it is not just advice but pure persecution against a religious faith and its followers, which should never happen in a democratic and free nation. In the beginning the leadership was very firm on and direct on the ban. Later it did not look good so they were asked to tone down their rhetoric against Dorje Shugden but you can see here very clearly the leadership demanding that all Dorje Shugden monks be expelled immediately from the monastery. Some people might say it’s a monastic rule to be followed, but it was the practice in the monasteries for 400 years. The exiled Tibetan leadership depends on the governments and organizations of the free world for millions per year in donations to sustain them. It will not look good for a group of persecuted refugees to be persecuting their own people using religious segregation.

The unpleasant and unfortunate truth is that Dorje Shugden people are not allowed in Tibetan hospitals, clinics, schools, stores and are denied governmental jobs and parliamentary representation. The Tibetan leadership pressures Tibetan Buddhist monasteries to expel monks who continue their worship of Dorje Shugden. The Tibetan leadership’s Department of Information and International Relations regularly publishes information about prominent Dorje Shugden practitioners on their official websites, to sway public opinion against them and to encourage further stigmatisation and persecution. In reality, it is an official, systematic and institutionalised witch hunt against a group of people who want nothing more than to practise their religion in peace.

And so, undeterred by decades of suffering, discrimination and pain, over 200 Dorje Shugden practitioners from more than 20 different countries recently gathered in Kathmandu, Nepal in a show of unity and support during this difficult period. The International Buddhist Conference of Dorje Shugden Followers was organised not for political reasons, but to discuss methods by which to continue our practice of Dorje Shugden in the spirit of peace and mutual respect as positive spiritual citizens of the global world. This is all Dorje Shugden practitioners want — to live in peace and harmony alongside our neighbours, free to practise our own faith without fear of repercussions.

I thank Reuters from my heart for covering the International Buddhist Conference of Dorje Shugden Practitioners as it lets people know who Dorje Shugden practitioners really are. We are fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, lawyers, doctors, engineers, accountants, artists and musicians – ordinary men and women whose only wish is to exercise their religious freedoms, free from persecution or the fear of it. Reuters has a sterling reputation for publishing timely and influential news articles that are distributed on hundreds of platforms and reach out to all sectors of global society. This Reuters article brings with it a message of peace and reconciliation and drives home the point that Dorje Shugden practice is not motivated by political agendas nor has it ever been. In fact, the practice has a rich history spanning the last 400 years and has benefited people greatly on their spiritual paths to become better and more compassionate citizens of the world. All we want is to see this trend continue.

Reuters bringing more attention to the unity of Dorje Shugden practitioners around the world will give them hope and inspiration because awareness is being created about their plight. Once again, I am grateful to Reuters for running this article. Thank you.

With folded hands,
Tsem Rinpoche

Addendum

Central Tibetan Administration’s Website

Below is a screenshot of Tibet.net, which is the Tibetan leadership’s website. In it, they have a section with “information” about Dorje Shugden which is designed to promote hatred, negativity and direct vulgarities towards Shugden practitioners. What kind of democratic leadership has a section like this on their site targeting a religious group? Imagine the uproar there would be if the American or Canadian, or any other democratic government had sections like this on their site for the public!

His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Website

This is a screenshot of DalaiLama.com which is the official website of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. When this section exists on His Holiness’ website, it actually emboldens Tibetans to discriminate against and segregate Shugden practitioners. This section is basically the Dalai Lama’s ‘endorsement’ of such behaviour; when anti-Shugden individuals see this, they think it is okay to segregate against the practice “because the Dalai Lama said so”. I don’t think the Dalai Lama would agree with this but the webmaster and shadow writers behind his website should not put this type of anti-Dorje Shugden section which subscribes to discrimination against a group because of religion. In the 21st century, this is not fitting of a great spiritual leader like His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Do not discriminate tolerate; is the way to go.

If the Dorje Shugden ban is just advice and not a ban, then why is a section like this necessary on any website?

Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile’s Resolution Stating Government Employees Should Not Rely on Dorje Shugden

In 1996, the Tibetan leadership passed a resolution stating that all departments (and ergo their employees) should not rely on Dorje Shugden (point 8). The resolution also stated that individuals who do engage in its worship will harm the Dalai Lama’s life and the so-called Tibetan cause. That being the case, how will anyone within the Tibetan settlements and government be able to openly engage in Dorje Shugden practice after that, if their worship has been widely labelled as anti-Dalai Lama, anti-CTA and treasonous? To openly practice after that will leave them open to criticism, vulgarities, harassment and discrimination, as Dorje Shugden practitioners have been for the last 20 years. So they will be left with three options: to give up the practice (which many will not do), to practice secretly, or to give up their jobs.

Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile’s Resolution Naming Dorje Shugden Practitioners as Criminals in History

This is a screenshot of tibet.net, the Central Tibetan Administration’s official website, which shows the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile’s unanimous resolution dated 17 March 2014 naming Dorje Shugden practitioners as criminals in history (point 3, paragraph 2).

The Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile passed a resolution on 17 March 2014 naming all Dorje Shugden practitioners as “criminals in history”. On what basis can the Tibetan leadership condemn all Dorje Shugden believers, including the elderly, infirm, young, and those not of Tibetan nationality, as criminals?

 

VIDEO: Dalai Lama bans Dorje Shugden practice
and expels monks

His Holiness the Dalai Lama was recorded in Drepung Monastery in 2008 clearly stating that those who refused to give up their Dorje Shugden practice should be expelled from the monasteries. His Holiness even said that if people found it difficult to fulfill this instruction, that they should say that the Dalai Lama told them to expel Dorje Shugden practitioners.

My question is this: if giving up Dorje Shugden practice is just advice, and it is up to us who we wish to rely on, then why are there such heavy repercussions for people who choose to keep the practice? As a result of His Holiness saying this, thousands of Shugden monks were expelled from the monasteries, and were forced to set up their own monasteries where they would be able to continue their Dorje Shugden practice.

 

VIDEO: Gaden Monastery Attacked

Since the inception of the Dorje Shugden ban 20 years ago, the CTA (Central Tibetan Administration) continues to organize a hateful campaign against Dorje Shugden practitioners. In doing so, the Tibetan leadership has gone against the very core teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama on compassion and tolerance and thereby, misled the world over the nature of their activities. The Tibetan leadership pursues huge sponsorship and financial aid from the West in order to run its operations but they actually channel these funds towards campaigns that suppresses religious freedom within the Tibetan communities through various means to instigate violent suppression against Dorje Shugden practitioners.

This video footage shows clearly how Dorje Shugden practitioners have lived their lives in fear for the last 20 years due to the ban on Dorje Shugden. Although the Tibetan leadership and supporters have continued to use various violent and underhanded means to segregate and discriminate Dorje Shugden practitioners, the practitioners themselves have not fought back. Instead, they continue to uphold their peaceful reliance on their Dorje Shugden lineage lamas and especially the practices and teachings they have received in relations to the protector deity. The main part of the video was filmed in 2000 and it shows 3,000 lay and ordained Tibetans heading towards Gaden Shartse Monastery in South India in order to riot against a group of Dorje Shugden practitioners.

VIDEO: France 24 reports on the Dorje Shugden issue

France 24 is a reputable news network based in France, known for their objective reporting style. They covered the Dorje Shugden issue extensively, surely a reflection of the seriousness of the issue for them to devote so much airtime to it. In their video, France 24 captured on film the discrimination against a Dorje Shugden monk.

VIDEO: Al Jazeera reports on the Dorje Shugden issue

Based in the Middle East, Al Jazeera was formed in response to the heavy influence of Western culture on the media. They are known to cover controversial topics that other news agencies may be reluctant to cover, and provide hard-hitting, objective coverage of current affairs.

Evidence of the Ban

Over the years, my students have collected evidence of the ban against Dorje Shugden. Personally, I find it quite disappointing and sad that they have been able to collect so much evidence because it just goes to show how widespread and pervasive this ban has become. As you can see below, notices banning Dorje Shugden practitioners can be found just about anywhere in the Tibetan settlements. Whether a Dorje Shugden person is trying to access healthcare or enter a restaurant, or try to buy something from a shop, they are banned everywhere and refused service. How is this just ‘advice’ when the repercussions of practising Dorje Shugden are so violent inside the Tibetan communities and settlements?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    How can a nun curse someone they do not even know and wish the person to die quickly and be born in hell? What kind of nun is this? Shocking! What more she’s cursing a Buddhist teacher and a monk?! Is this the face of Bhutanese Buddhist?

    This is so shameful for her as a nun, her teacher, her monastery, her country and her King. A sangha should not behave in such a manner. A Sangha should carry enlightened Buddha’s teachings of compassion and wisdom to benefit all sentient beings.

    A Sangha is not supposed to promote hatred and certainly should not be cursing or wishing another person to die. That wish itself is already breaking one of the vows.
    A Sangha is one of the 3 Jewels, an object of refuge. They should not behave like an uncivilized person with so much hate. This is how bad the Tibetan Leadership has spread their lies and hate about Dorje Shugden and Shugden Buddhist practitioners.

    A true democracy allows everyone the freedom to exercise their human rights, including the freedom to practise any religion they want. In democratic countries, the government does not interfere with this right. Neither are democratic governments prejudiced against their citizens’ choice of religious belief. They do not force people to stop their religious practice or pass legislation criminalising people because of their religion.

    The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), the Tibetan leadership who are based in Dharamsala are the exception. They are the only so-called ‘democratic’ leadership that puts a stranglehold on its people, persecuting them for their religious beliefs. They deny the rights of Dorje Shugden practitioners for simply practicing their religion as they have done for the past 400 years. Dorje Shugden practitioners are ostracised from their own community, denied medical care, education or even employment in government offices. The CTA definitely does not live up to the right to be called a democratic administration, especially when in it inflicts suppression of people’s freedom and disrespects basic human rights.

    After so many years of suffering in silence due to discrimination and oppression, it is really encouraging to read about the 1st. International Dorje Shugden Conference in the Reuters. The ban has resulted in untold hardships for many Shugdenpas. I am not Tibetan and live half a world away but am just as affected by this unethical and medieval ban. The online attacks I receive is nothing new. My Guru and my other Dharma siblings have also been cyberattacked maliciously. It’s 2018 and it is high time for a change. The ban has not in any way help the Tibetan cause as no one would back a government who oppresses its own citizen’s religious believes.

    I feel inspired to see this gathering as this is a sign of courage and solidarity amongst the Shugdenpas who will not remain voiceless anymore. I am very happy to note that Kechara was part of this historical event. May the ban be lifted soon and let the healing begin.

  17. Carmen Koo on Mar 9, 2018 at 9:59 pm

    Dear Reuters,

    Thank you for this publication of the article, “The International Buddhist Conference of Dorje Shugden Buddhists”. It is extremely heart warming to know that an international media as reputable as yours, would highlight something close to the hearts of Dorje Shugden practitioners. For years, Dorje Shugden practitioners have been demonized within their communities, denied their basic rights to health, education, freedom (to travel), and life. Dorje Shugden practitioners have been made as enemies of the state of the Tibetan Administration, and always accused as being Chinese pigs/dogs. Monasteries have been broken into and monks have been attacked, for holding strong to their faith. So this publication of yours gives much encouragement to us.

    I was present at this conference. There was nothing but peaceful talks and exchange for how to better our lineage, how to grow our practice and continuation to propagate the doctrine of Lama Tsongkhapa, the founder of our lineage. It was a great and successful conference, where many friendships were forged, and old friends reunited. Dorje Shugden practitioners are often painted as barbaric, and violent people, and my own observation and experience throughout the years totally nullifies this.

    Thank you Tsem Rinpoche, for your voice, your strength and your courage to highlight the discrimination dealt against Dorje Shugden practitioners for so many years. The Tibetan Administration denies this ban, but all the evidences have proved otherwise, and it is time to end this separation that has been encouraged, forced, promoted and advocated by the the Central Tibetan Administration!

    It was an honour to be an attendee at this Dorje Shugden’s International Conference where the courageous warriors for human rights of religious freedom gathered. Thanks to our Guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche that my awareness grew beyond the borders of my comfort zone as being in Malaysia, the effects of this illogical ban by the Tibetan Leaders on the 400 year old authentic Dorje Shugen practice had been minimal (abuses by cyber attackers who’s seemingly only job is to attack Dorje Shugden practitioners). It was only after attending this conference that it brought to reality the extent of the damages and harm by the Tibetan Leaders onto their own people. At the end of the conference, the 5 mins silence and prayers for those who perished due the persecutions by the Tibetan Leaders on innocents Dorje Shugden practitioners who loyally kept their practice due to Guru Devotion, that made me realised the gravity of situation. How could a fair democratic government that the Tibetan Leaders declared themselves to be, take lives on the basis of religious practice, especially when in this day and age, Religious Freedom is a right of every individual.
    Thank you Reuters for sharing the news of this conference with the world and to bring to light the unjust that should not be. May the illogical ban on Lord Dorje Shugden, a symbol of repression on the rights of religious freedom, be the shame that the world will wake up to and stand up against. May the unity and courage of the International Dorje Shugden communities of practitioners bring down this ban which had caused so much sufferings, abuses, threats and even deaths.
    Thank you Rinpoche for the courage in leading us to be true to our precious Guru and lineage practices which bring so much benefits and most of all, to care for others who have no voice to speak of their sufferance under the suppression of the Tibetan Leaders. In face of it all, to be respectful at all times. May the ban be swiftly lifted and practitioners be reunited in blessings of true spirituality.

  19. Samfoonheei on Mar 9, 2018 at 11:50 am

    Great news …… Reuters covered international Dorje Shugden conference 2018 at Kathmandu, Nepal, recently. Over hundreds of Dorje Shugden practitioner from 20 countries gathered to voice up regarding the ban and so to bring awareness of the practice which is not motivated by any political agendas. Which in fact has since benefited many more people on their spiritual paths to become better and more compassionate.
    Because of the ban more than 20 years ago Dorje Shugden people had to break away from their monasteries, family torn apart, the unfairness , discrimination and so forth. Now with enough evidence showing that there is no religious freedom or true democracy , more are specking up of their sufferings.
    Thank you Reuters , for covering these International Buddhist Conference of Dorje Shugden Practitioners giving inspiration to many practitioners worldwide.. With folded hands thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post. May the ban on Dorje Shugden will be lifted soon .

  20. Julia Tan on Mar 7, 2018 at 10:39 pm

    Feel proud to see all Dorje Shugden practitioners especially those spiritual leaders and many sent their representatives to join the event not to show support but at the same time working together to protect and enforce the practice. We are preserving the Tsongkhapa lineage which is the main reason of Dorje Shugden arose. The ban is solely for political issue but huge damage have done due to this.

    The idea of the ban is to split the Tibetan and to use this issue against China. It’s like self- immolate to protest against China so this Dorje Shugden ban is another trick to harm their own Tibetan to fight against China. Why keep on doing that? Along the way the damage is so huge but there’s no result against the enemy but still pushing to do so until the last breath, until the dharma is like a mess.

    The Buddha Dharma is to liberate sentient beings from sufferings. I am grateful that all Dorje Shugden spiritual leaders now stand together and put their foot down to protect the Buddha Dharma so that more sentient beings will be benefited.

  21. Jacinta Goh on Mar 7, 2018 at 9:21 am

    It’s been long overdue the restoration of peace and mend the hurts. What I can deduce from this conference is that Shugden followers do not questioning the past and all the whys anymore but rather they would like to move ahead, benefits more people and to practice in peace. Hence it will be more appropriate to stop all the remarks, hates, abusive actions be it through speech or physically threatening the Shugden followers and etc. Stop the nonsense whether through offline or online. Enough is enough!

    Heartfelt gratitude for the organisers to organise this and nothing more rejoicing than seeing Kechara is being recognised as part of it.

  22. Anne Ong on Mar 6, 2018 at 11:12 pm

    Thank you Reuters for covering this International Conference of Dorje Shugden Buddhists. By highlighting the goals of peace, unity and harmony of this Conference, you are showcasing the prevailing sentiments and the spirit of Shugden practitioners everywhere as being those of peace and unity. Let us now celebrate Dorje Shugden day on 24th August to show appreciation and gratitude to King Protector in unison internationally. Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this wonderful news.😀🙏👍

  23. Datuk May on Mar 6, 2018 at 6:16 pm

    This First International Dorje Shugden conference 2018 is the beginning of the Dorje Shugden devotees to make a stand against the discrimination, segregation, disharmony and misinformation about their aspirations to benefit many with their faith and worship of King Protector Dorje Shugden.

    After suffering for as long as 20 years, it is now known that all Dorje Shugden devotees wish is the right to religious practice and the peace to continue with their practice without the illegal ban placed on them by the CTA.

    Let us now celebrate Dorje Shugden day on 24th August to show appreciation and gratitude to King Protector in unison internationally.

    Thank you Reuters for covering the conference and organisers and facilitators of this historical event.

  24. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Mar 6, 2018 at 6:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful news.

    Thank you Reuters for covering this International Conference of Dorje Shugden Buddhists. By highlighting the goals of peace, unity and harmony of this Conference, you are showcasing the prevailing sentiments and the spirit of Shugden practitioners everywhere as being those of peace and unity. This is even more crucial to stress now to show that Shugden practitioners have always wanted nothing but religious freedom -the freedom to practice Dorje Shugden, and their desire for peace and harmony has always prevailed. As the world’s focus is being directed toward the unjustified atrocities and violence against Shugden practitioners in the last 20 years, may the Tibetan Leadership respond with humanity by removing the ban and all forms of persecution of Shugden practitioners?

    Every space for peace and reconciliation is being given by Shugden practitioners. For the sake of the preservation of the glorious Je Tsongkhapa and Gelug Lineage and for the sake of the future of Tibetan Buddhism, may the Tibetan leadership start working hand in hand with Shugden practitioners in a spirit of reconciliation to effect the peace and unity of Tibetans and Tibetan Buddhists.

  25. Choi Sheem on Mar 6, 2018 at 2:53 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    This is much heartening news. With this positive news coverage by Reuters, being one of the world’s leading news agency, the plights of thousands Dorje Shugden practitioners are brought to the world attention. Reuters news and contents are known to be unbiased and trusted by its readers, so this article would definitely silent the false allegations being put on Shugden practitioners.

    Thank you Rinpoche for working tirelessly to bring Dorje Shugden’s teachings and blessings to us.

    Yours sincerely,
    Choi Sheem.

  26. Freon on Mar 6, 2018 at 1:45 am

    Dear Rinpoche

    Rejoice on this good news.

    The moment Reuters published the news about Dorje Shugden conference have shown that the understanding about Dorje Shugden issues have becoming more clear, where this religion is persecute due to political issues.

    Reuters have once published about Dorje Shugden’s protest activities in a negative way. And now, it have report about this conference which to me is a good news that unofficially Reuters have admit that Dorje Shugden’s is a authentic religion that practices by Tibetan. And, the conference is international scale not as claimed by CTA that it is practice in small scale.

    Truly appreciate that Reuters have reported on this conference.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news

    With folded hand,
    Freon

  27. Pastor Henry Ooi on Mar 6, 2018 at 12:49 am

    This article by Reuters gives hope to Tibetans who practice Dorje Shugden, a practice they have held on loyally for generations within each Tibetan family. Dorje Shugden practitioners have been praying and hoping that the conflicts surrounding the practice will soon be over so that the healing for all divides may begin. May peace prevail over the segregation and hatred sown on Dorje Shugden practitioners around the world by the Tibetan leadership, the Central Tibetan Administration in Dharamsala, India.

    Thank you Reuters for publishing this article.

    Animals are like human beings. They will feel scared and they need protections. They are more vulnerable than human. Since we are stronger than them, we should protect them, but not inflict pain on them.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing with us this amazing news and inspiring occasion where Kechara has the chance to make offerings to sangha from Sri Lanka. These monks are pure monks and it is very meritorious when we can make such offerings to them.

    From this incident, I am able to see the true spirit of religion where the monks kindly accepted our offerings even though we are from a different sect of Buddhism and they even requested to bless the land on their own initiative. They have a good intention and wanted the Dharma to grow in Kechara sincerely.

    This is how it should be when it comes to religion. People should not discriminate based on the differences in their belief system.

    Rinpoche have always advice us that we should go to places full of spiritual power such to Bodh Gaya, Lumbini , Wu Tai San and so forth. Have an auspicious and meritorious trip instead of going for holidays to see places of interest. Rejoice to Pastor David for bringing your dad and your friend Paul with his mother for this wonderful meaningful pilgrimage to Nepal and India visiting powerful places of the tantric deity Vajrayogini and so on. And visiting Serpom monastery as suggested by Rinpoche to make offerings to the monks. Looking at those beautiful pictures paints a thousands words.
    I wish I could go on a pilgrimage to such Holy and scared place of Nepal and India some day.
    Thank you Pastor David for sharing your memorable account of your pilgrimage with your dad, Paul and his mother.

    Very informative post of this Gyenze fire Puja or sometime known as the Fire Puja of the Wealth. In Buddhism, ceremonies are meant to provide a blessing. Gyenze fire Puja is no exception, is a very effective and powerful puja within the Tibetan Buddhism. And is considered the king of all pujas. Well its basically to remove all obstacles ,purifying negative karma, increase merits, dispel negative energies and pacifies unseen beings, that obstruct us from doing our Dharma practice. Wow……these are the 13 ingredients been offered during this fire Puja. I am fortunate to have witnessed one at Kechara Forest Retreat before and looking forward to the next Fire Puja this coming Saturday.
    Thanks Rinpoche for having those monks to perform this meritorious puja . And thank you all sponsors and those hardworking team making it possible.

    Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche known as Milarepa

    As is clearly seen in Helmut Gassner’s account, two of the most influential and trailblazing Tibetan lamas who taught in the West both practised Dorje Shugden and held him in high regard. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, was not only once the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery but was a well-known meditator, debator, tantric adept and teacher of thousands of monks and laypeople all over the world.

    Rinpoche, if people take the time to write and express their thoughts and feelings, that is something that should be appreciated and respected. And if people confide in Rinpoche, that information is always treated as sacred because it is not always easy for people to trust someone else enough to open up to them.

    China is one of the most powerful countries in the world nowadays and many countries had chosen to be in China’s good books. It is only a matter of time where all the Tibetan government’s supporter will stop supporting them and be on China’s side.

    Let’s face it. The struggle for Tibet’s independence has been on-going for 60 years but there is no progress at all. Now, even His Holiness the Dalai Lama is telling the Tibetans to go for Umaylam instead of Rangzen. However, Umaylam requires their cooperation with the Chinese government.

    It is good for Tibetans or Tibetan government to befriend China because they will need their mercy to get back to Tibet because China has all the reasons for not letting the Tibetans go back to Tibet. They certainly do not need Tibetans.

    This is something I don’t understand. In the beginning, the 14th Dalai Lama was practising Dorje Shugden and he did not say anything about Dorje Shugden. Suddenly in 1996, he banned everyone from practising Dorje Shugden saying Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit.

    Dorje Shugden is a practice given to the Dalai Lama by his teacher, Trijang Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche would never harm the Dalai Lama by giving the Dalai Lama the practice of an evil spirit. This does not make sense at all. Is the Dalai Lama implying his teacher was not good and wanted to harm him when he said Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit?

    Voyage to the Colossus of Rhodes

    In school, I remember we had a competition to make anything we wanted with the sole condition that it had to use LED lights. It was around the time that out of all the various figures of ancient Greek mythology, my fascination with Medusa was at its highest. Her story is an interesting one. She was once a beautiful maiden who, cursed by the goddess Athena, was made to look so terrible that the mere sight of her would turn anyone to stone. Over time her anger overtook her and she became a scourge, plaguing mankind. The demi-god Perseus slayed her and used her dreadful head to turn to stone monsters, beasts and other men alike in his self-serving yet glorified journey which ended with the founding of the ancient city-state Mycenae.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: Putting down roots

    Rinpoche is never interested in secular activities just for the sake of it, but always uses his knowledge, interest and experience to see how he can improve the lives of those around him and how he can bring Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to the next level in terms of serving others. So for Rinpoche, a vegetable farm is not just a vegetable farm, but an activity that can bring Dharma to others.

Edie was so scared and just needed is a hug and pad from some kind soul . Bronwyne Mirkovich is so compassionate , kind for saving Edie’s life. Thank you too Edie Gobbie from the American Maltese Association for helping with this wonderful project to rescue animals. Life is so precious nor matter what it is , it is still a life……human or doggie. Dogs are our best friends, never harm, abuse or hurt them.

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this auspicious post with us. It is amazing that Kechara has the chance to make such offerings to the high lamas and monks in the monastery. This is a clear example of the generosity of Rinpoche that wishes each and every one of us to adopt.

    Making offerings to the sangha is very meritorious and we can collect a lot of merit with such actions because we are directly supporting the growth of Dharma and those high lamas are Buddhas. Seeing such pictures warms my heart and I rejoice to see those happy faces of those monks who received those very much needed offerings.

    Wow ….. there have been so many UFO sightings in so many different countries. There are altogether eight UFO sightings within 10 days witnessed by people across the globe. They saw shiny unidentified flying objects flying past in the sky as reported. Very interesting….. strange object sparked theories of possible extra terrestrial sightings and they do definitely exist after all. Many UFO sightings have been reported in the last decades yet scientist or researchers yet to confirm the details or evidence to proof it. But the strange sightings in different countries at the same month could not be wrong as we know “they’ have been watching at the earth from some where up there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing …..simple amazing caught on camera by those eye witness.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    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
