The front entrance to Trode Khangsar chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

The Trode Khangsar is an important chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden in Lhasa, Tibet. It was built by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama towards the end of the 17th Century. Dorje Shugden is an uncommon Dharma protector within Tibetan Buddhism, who is said to protect the Buddhist teachings in general and Nagarjuna’s Madhyamika (Middle Way) Philosophy as taught by Lama Tsongkhapa specifically. Lama Tsongkhapa was the founder of the great Gelug lineage. Dorje Shugden, in his previous incarnation as Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, was a great scholar, meditator, teacher and contemporary of His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama. After being murdered, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as Dorje Shugden in order to benefit countless sentient beings.

Due to the heavy negative karma of killing such a great being, the country was unsettled by earthquakes and other disturbances agitated the land. Thinking that these disturbances were due to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arising as a malevolent spirit, various high lamas of the land such as His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other experienced masters such as Mindrolling Lama performed extensive rituals and fire pujas to solve the problem. Known for their powerful ability to subdue spirits, these rituals turned out ineffective as Dorje Shugden could not be destroyed. During the fire puja rituals, the Mindrolling Lama would call Dorje Shugden’s consciousness to the ladle and turn it over to tip him into the fire to be destroyed. Each time the Mindrolling Lama attempted to do this, he would see Yamantaka climb on top of the ladle. After many unsuccessful attempts at killing Dorje Shugden in this manner, the Mindrolling Lama realised he was trying to kill Manjushri and immediately stopped the rituals.

Upon learning of this, His Holiness the 5th Dalai manifested the realisation that Dorje Shugden had not in fact taken rebirth as a malevolent spirit, but had arisen as an enlightened Dharma protector.

As an apology to Dorje Shugden for the murder and the subsequent attempts to destroy him (having mistaken him for a spirit), His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama then composed a praise to Dorje Shugden and created a statue with his own hands to honour and recognize him as a Dharma protector. The 5th Dalai Lama also built this chapel in the heart of Lhasa at the exact same place where Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s body had been cremated. This was told to us by the current caretakers of Trode Khangsar, which continues to function to this day as an active chapel propitiating Dorje Shugden.

Trode Khangsar itself is registered as a national heritage memorial, putting it under the care of the Chinese government at a national level. As recently as 2008, the chapel was being renovated by the Chinese Government. Thus Trode Khangsar which is dedicated to Dorje Shugden continues to be another powerful testament to the high respect His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama came to develop for Dorje Shugden.

 

The Chapel Structure

A Map of Lhasa - Trode Khangsar is located close to the main circumambulation circuit. Click to enlarge.

The chapel is situated in the heart of Lhasa, behind the main Chapel of the Jowo Buddha, also known as the Jokhang Temple, just south of the Barkor area close to the circumambulation circuit. The chapel was originally a three-storied structure and has a front entrance leading directly to the main hall.

The main hall of Trode Khangsar has eight pillars, is approximately ten metres wide and is adorned with historical paintings of Dorje Shugden’s previous life stories, as well as murals of auspicious symbols and deities such as Indra and Brahma. The paintings of Dorje Shugden’s previous lives include Manjushri, Birwapa, Shakya Shri Bhadra, Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen, Buton Rinchen Drub, Panchen Sonam Drakpa, Sonam Yeshe Wangpo and Ngawang Sonam Geleg. Other paintings include Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, the previous incarnation of Dorje Shugden and Nechung urging Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen to fulfill his promise and arise as a Dharma protector. Nechung in one mural is depicted as riding a snow lion holding a bow and arrow, arriving to where Lama Tsongkhapa is giving teachings seated on a throne and surrounded by other monks. In the form of a young boy, Nechung interrupted the teachings three times. During the third occasion, Duldzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s main students informed Nechung that it was not appropriate to interrupt the teachings and asked him to stop. Duldzin Drakpa Gyelsten is then depicted standing up, at which point he promises Nechung to protect Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition in the future. Next, Lama Tsongkhapa is depicted as being delighted and offers Duldzin Drakpa Gyeltsen a skull cup filled with nectar.

Other notable murals include:

  • Manjushri during the life of Buddha Shakyamuni
  • Birwapa who was one of the great Indian Mahasiddhas
  • Shakya Shri Bhadra who was a scholar from Kashmir that traveled to Tibet and disseminated the holy Dharma there including many important practice lineages
  • Sakya Pandita and Buton Rinchen Drub who were two early Tibetan translators and scholars

Trode Khangsar also houses many precious objects, such as the wood printing blocks for an extensive Dorje Shugden Fulfillment Ritual text by Gaden Jangtse Serkong Dorje Chang, an important Gelug lama from the 19th century. The main hall itself leads to a room on the north side in which rituals are conducted and also to rooms for resident monks to the east and west. The ritual room has black coloured walls, a skylight, and houses paintings of various Dharma protectors. On the northern side of the room is a statue of Lama Tsongkhapa, founder of the Gelug lineage, together with his spiritual sons, Gyaltsab Je and Khedrub Je.

The third and top most floor was removed during the Cultural Revolution in Tibet and used to be the residence of Trode Khangsar’s oracle. The lowest floor, which is below ground level is now currently used for religious purposes.

 

Dorje Shugden’s recognition by the Qing Dynasty

Trode Khangsar is also linked to a story illustrating the enlightened power and clairvoyance of Dorje Shugden. During the time of His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama Khedrub Gyatso, there was a Chinese Amban, or high official, from the Qing dynasty named Che Trungtang, who had a set of important questions to ask Dorje Shugden on behalf of the Chinese Emperor Daoguang. He burned the written questions in front of Dorje Shugden’s image and asked for clear answers and prophesies during a trance of the Dorje Shugden oracle. The following day during the trance of the oracle, he received very clear advice which even matched the order the questions had originally been written in.

The Qing Emperor Daoguang was very impressed by the precision and clarity of the advice given in regards to his important political questions. In return, he sent a pandit’s hat as an offering and recognised Dorje Shugden as a great Dharma protector for the whole of Buddhism. The hat was placed over the door of Trode Khangsar amidst a grand ceremony held in the front courtyard. Many high officials and dignitaries attended this ceremony including His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama, the Qing Amban, Retreng Rinpoche, the Dorje Shugden oracle and various other monks and lay people.

Current

As of today, Trode Khangsar is open to visit for tourists and pilgrims. The chapel is still in use and the tradition of making offerings and daily pujas conducted by monks continues. The chapel is in very good condition given that it was recently renovated.

Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen

Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was a great master, meditator, teacher, logician, yogi, siddha and erudite scholar. During the search for the reincarnation of the 4th Dalai Lama, the young Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen demonstrated such attainments and special signs that he was considered one of the potential candidates for the 5th Dalai Lama.

Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was an extremely popular teacher who had students from all over Tibet who would come to Drepung to receive teachings from him. His Ladrang grew in fame and influence, which resulted in jealousy among the people serving the 5th Dalai Lama. Afraid that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame would eclipse that of their lama, they had him murdered. This took place more than 300 years ago and after his murder, the government banned the search for his reincarnation. His Ladrang (personal household) with his personal items were confiscated. In Tibet, all of his written works were destroyed. Today, the writings we have by Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen exist only because many had been taken to Mongolia for preservation.

Below is a reproduction of an original wall painting in Trode Khangsar depicting Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s extensive reincarnation lineage which includes great masters of Tibet and India. This illustration depicts clearly the glorious previous incarnations of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who became the world peace protector Dorje Shugden.

西藏拉萨市布旦康萨护法殿前门。

西藏拉萨市的布旦康萨是专为多杰雄登而设的重要护法殿,由至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切建于公元17世纪末。多杰雄登是藏传佛教里的一位不共护法,祂总则守护一切佛陀法教,别则专护持宗喀巴大师所讲述的龙树菩萨之《中观》教诲。宗喀巴大师是伟大的格鲁传承之创始人,而多杰雄登的上一个转世——杜固扎巴坚赞,则是一位伟大的学者、禅修者和老师,与第五世嘉瓦仁波切生活在同一个時代。他被杀害后,化身为护法来利益无数的众生。

杀害伟大圣贤所造下的严重恶业,造成地震和土地干扰事件频频发生,导致西藏变得动荡不安。当地的高僧们认为这一切都因杜固扎巴坚赞化身为邪灵所引起,于是嘉瓦仁波切联同敏珠林喇嘛等几位资深大师共同进行火供法会等大量仪式,以期将问题解决。然而,这些向来以能降伏邪灵的强大能力著称的仪式,却无法有效地消灭多杰雄登。在火供仪式期间,敏珠林喇嘛将多杰雄登的心识召唤到勺子里,翻转勺子企图将他送入火中销毁,但每当敏珠林喇嘛尝试这么做时,他就看到大威德金刚安坐在勺子上。多次尝试以同样的方式杀害多杰雄登不果之后,敏珠林喇嘛才意识到他企图杀害的其实是文殊菩萨,于是立即终止了仪式。

经过此事,至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切意识到多杰雄登事实上并非化身为邪灵,而是已经化身为证悟护法。

至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切对自己因误认多杰雄登为邪灵而企图谋杀和毁灭祂深感懊悔。为了表达歉意,嘉瓦仁波切为多杰雄登写了一篇礼赞文,亲手制造多杰雄登像并承认祂为一位佛教护法。此外,第五世嘉瓦仁波切还在拉萨市中心杜固扎巴坚赞被荼毗的地点建造了这座护法殿。布旦康萨目前的守殿人向我们叙述了这段典故,而布旦康萨至今仍是一所供奉多杰雄登的护法殿。

布旦康萨现已被列入中国政府管理下的国家级遗产,并在2008年经过重新整修,使得这所建来纪念多杰雄登的圣殿,将继续成为一个至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切高度尊崇多杰雄登的强有力之证明。

 

护法殿结构

这座护法殿位于拉萨市中心觉沃佛殿所在的大昭寺后面,临近转山路径的八廓区南部。护法殿最初为三层楼建筑,前门直通主殿。

布旦康萨的主殿里有八根柱子,绘上多杰雄登多位前世的生平,主殿的壁画上则有吉祥图和因陀罗、梵天等诸神画像。多杰雄登前世画作上的人物包括文殊菩萨毗瓦巴、释迦师利巴札、萨迦班智达贡嘎坚赞、布顿仁钦珠,班禅索南扎巴、索南耶喜旺波和阿旺索南格列。当中的重点壁画包括多杰雄登的前世杜固扎巴坚赞(见下)和乃穹。画上显示乃穹护法敦促杜固扎巴坚赞履行他的承诺,崛起成为一位护法。

其他的壁画包括多杰雄登的前世杜固扎巴坚赞和乃穹。画上显示乃穹护法敦促杜固扎巴坚赞履行他的承诺,崛起成为一位护法。当中的一面壁画描绘乃穹骑着雪狮,手持弓和箭,莅临宗喀巴大师授教的所在地。当时的宗喀巴大师正坐在宝座上被其他僧侣们围绕着。乃穹以一个小男孩的形式出现,并且三次打断了宗喀巴大师的开示。在他第三次打扰开示时,宗喀巴大师的其中一名主要弟子,持律主扎巴坚赞告知乃穹打扰开示是一个不适当的行为,便要他停止捣乱。接下来的一幅画显示持律主扎巴坚赞站起身,答应乃穹在未来守护宗喀巴大师传承法教。其后的壁画则显示宗喀巴大师现欣悦状,将一装满甘露的骷髅杯献给持律主。

其他较为显著的壁画包括:

  • 释迦摩尼佛在世时的文殊菩萨
  • 毗瓦巴曾是印度其中一位杰出的大成就者
  • 释迦师利巴札是一位从克什米尔到西藏去的学者,他将神圣的佛法,包括许多重要的传承修持带入了藏地
  • 萨迦班智达布顿仁钦珠是西藏早期的两位译师和学者

布旦康萨内也收藏了很多珍贵的物品,如由19世纪重要格鲁上师甘丹江孜色贡金刚持所制作的多杰雄登酬供仪轨木刻印版等。主殿通往北面一间进行法事活动的经堂和几间位于东面与西面的僧舍。进行法事活动的经堂有着黑色的墙壁,一扇天窗,还珍藏了许多护法的绘画;而在偏北的经堂里则有着一尊格鲁派创始人宗喀巴大师和贾曹杰、克主杰两位心子的圣像。

护法殿的三楼和顶楼在西藏文化大革命期间已被拆除,那里曾经是布旦康萨神谕媒的住所,而最底层的地下室目前也已不再作为宗教用途。

 

多杰雄登获清朝承认

在布旦康萨还发生过一件足以证明多杰雄登的证悟力量与神通的故事。在第十一世嘉瓦仁波切凱珠嘉措执政期间,有一位名车通唐(译名)的中国清朝驻藏大臣代表道光皇帝有一些重大事务想要请示多杰雄登。他在多杰雄登护法像前将呈文烧了,并要求护法在降神時给予明确的答案与预言。在次日降神時,护法对他询问的事情均给予正确、明显的回覆,连顺序都正确无误。

清朝道光皇帝对于他所提出的政治问题均得到明确和清晰的答复感到十分满意,遂赏班智达帽一顶兼赐封多杰雄登为佛教大护法。颁赠盛典在布旦康萨前院举行,于大殿门额挂上皇帝所赐班智达帽,许多高官政要均出席了此项盛典,其中包括第十一世嘉瓦仁波切、清朝驻藏大臣、热振仁波切、多杰雄神谕媒和许多僧俗民众。

杜固扎巴坚赞

杜固扎巴坚赞是一位大师、 禅修者、老师、逻辑学家、瑜伽士、成就者和学识渊博的学者。在寻找第四世嘉瓦仁波切的转世时,年轻的杜固扎巴坚赞因展现出非凡的成就和特征,曾被认为是第五世嘉瓦仁波切的灵童人选之一。

杜固扎巴坚赞是一位广受欢迎的上师,遍布西藏各地的弟子常专程前往哲蚌寺寻求他的教诲。这使得其拉章的声望与影响力与日俱增,继而引起第五世嘉瓦仁波切随从的妒忌。他们担心杜固扎巴坚赞的名声会超越自己的上师,因此将他谋杀。他被谋杀至今的三百多年期间,当地执权者禁止寻找他的转世灵童,其拉章 (私人住处) 与私人物品都被充公,他在西藏的一切著作也都被销毁。今日仅存的杜固扎巴坚赞著作都是当年被运出蒙古保存的文物。

以下图片为布旦康萨内杜固扎巴坚赞转世传承原壁画的复制图,当中人物包括了西藏和印度的大师。此画清楚地描绘了杜固扎巴坚赞崛起成为世界和平护法多杰雄登前的历任辉煌转世。点击图像放大至原始大小。

    In the emerald forest there lies magical beings and powerful entities of old. There are beautiful gentle creatures of the forest such as deers, rabbits, owls and so on. Faeries, little people, elves, dwarves, trolls and other magnificent worldly and other-worldly beings of mystical origins who nurture and look over the natural world call this place their home. These supernatural beings, who remain hidden to ordinary view and are rarely seen together, have gathered to herald the arrival of the World Peace Guardian Dorje Shugden within the ethereal realm. Paying homage to the divine king they welcome him, the supreme being whose body shines with the light of magnificence and abides in benevolent wisdom. He who has come from the pinnacle of the celestial dimensions, he has the dominion over men and gods. All beings in this and other worlds have gathered to pay homage and to receive blessings, abundance and counsel.

    Shugden the divine king, at last has drawn near,
    He offers a new life so clear,
    With a silent prayer he offers the golden stair,
    Sing praises, does the emerald forest all cheer.

    COMPASSION at its best: His Holiness the Dalai Lama explained in Ladakh, 31 July 2018:

    “Usually at the beginning of an empowerment there is a ritual to drive away interferences. But I no longer feel it’s consistent to regard some beings as evil forces. At the start of each day I cultivate altruism, but in the evening we say, ‘May the evil forces be driven away.’ There seems to be a contradiction here that I’m no longer keen to comply with. I’m not highly realized, but I have great confidence in the power of Bodhichitta.”

    Source: https://bit.ly/2wVsqSb

    ———————————————-

    This latest statement by His Holiness the Dalai Lama is excellent. I fully believe in his compassion and I hope he will fully implement it.

    All negative beings take rebirth with negative minds due to deep attachments. The attachments result in negative states of rebirth and angry minds that carry out harmful actions, like spirits or hungry ghosts who can be very bothersome because they are very angry as they died in the state of attachment in their former rebirths.

    Indeed we need to generate compassion towards these beings, especially the formless type, as it would be the best remedy to stop their harm. We can recite mantras with love and bless them with it. While reciting prayers, we can meditate on them being at peace. When we generate compassion towards these harmful interferences of the formless type, many of them will calm down and stop their harm and even go away. Some of them, you can talk to them and subdue their harm and they will stop harming completely if they feel your love. That is how you can help them.

    Many high masters of India and Tibet generated great compassion towards certain ghosts, spirits or interferers and subdued them in this manner and even made them into protectors of regions. I’ve witnessed this with one of my lamas where he subdued a female spirit that crossed over the Himalayas. After making the spirit promise it will not harm others, my lama gave the spirit a drink to seal the promise.

    Since the Dalai Lama has manifested saying Dorje Shugden is negative (although many high lamas disagree), then he can apply this method to Dorje Shugden. He can ‘subdue’ Dorje Shugden by generating tremendous love, prayers and talking nice to Dorje Shugden who will be ‘subdued’. Then people are henceforth ‘free’ to practice Dorje Shugden without more discrimination, segregation and being called degrading names for practicing this protector.

    Give peace a chance. His Holiness the Dalai Lama can generate great love towards Dorje Shugden and all the hundreds of thousands of Dorje Shugden practitioners that love the Dalai Lama and miss him like I do. May His Holiness the Dalai Lama bring peace and heal the rift with Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    May His Holiness live very long and always be healthy,
    Tsem Rinpoche

    This smallish chapel, contains things very significant to the Gelug tradition, the handmade statue of Dorje Shugden by the Great 5th Dalai Lama. If Tulku Dragpa Gyeltsen did indeed manifest as as a spirit then, there would have been no reason for the Great 5th Dalai Lama to enthrone Dorje Shugden in a chapel, wrote a praise to Dorje Shugden and make his statue.

    Also this line of incarnation of Tulku Dragpa Gyeltsen no one challenged it, except for when the ban on Dorje Shugden came into effect, this is also a significant point. Hence a line of incarnation of realized and enlightened lamas, cannot manifest a spirit.

    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.

    Dear Kecharians and friends,

    Last night, I gave a teaching to a group of people who were in Kechara Forest Retreat. I shared with them the correct way to pray for our loved ones and why we shouldn’t “demand” Dorje Shugden with fulfilling our wishes but let Dorje Shugden decide what is the best outcome. He has infinite Manjushri wisdom beyond our own and we should trust this wisdom. Sometimes what we pray for is not what should be fulfilled. Sometimes what we don’t want turns out to be the better result in the future.

    I also shared with them about a beautiful monk, Tsawa Pulthok Rinpoche, who was jailed and badly tortured by the soldiers for 19 years, starting back in 1959 in Lhasa, and yet he has no anger towards his torturers. He was released and had resettled in Nepal where I met him. For the remainder of his life, he spent his time in meditation, retreats and pujas for the public until he passed. He was glowing, happy and very proud of the fact he was a student of His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, which he told me when we met. He did full meditations on Vajra Yogini and short puja to Dorje Shugden daily in his small room in Kathmandu, Nepal where I had to honor to join in his prayers. He told me he was very happy to have his room to do his meditations, pujas and prayers openly. Whatever happened to him, he accepted as part of his karma and he spent much time in prison meditating and quietly teaching dharma to his other cellmates. He was very much respected in prison in Lhasa because he never showed anger, always meditated and consoled others, giving them great strength. He endured much hardship, torture and beatings but he never lost his monk vows. His full understanding of karma helped him not feel any anger or bitterness towards the soldiers. He told me that daily, he would meditate that the karma of others in prison would come to him. That all the torture and abuse he received was so others in prison did not have to suffer this. He said suffering for others was what kept him going and made him be able to endure the pain.

    We are not bound by our experiences. We are bound by our choice. I also reminded those were present about the good person inside each and every one of us, and how we should not “bury” this good person with our excuses because the more excuses we give, the deeper this good person is buried and soon the layers of excuses will make it very difficult for us to find this good person. We are all beautiful good people and we should not let it get lost by lying, laziness, lack of integrity and procrastination. We all have a choice. If we have to make excuses, we should choose to make excuses to be a winner. When we win, we make ourselves happy and those around us happy.

    The teaching session went well and it was spontaneous, and I requested the people who live and work in and around Kechara Forest Retreat for the talk. We had some good laughs to during the talk.

    Thank you,
    Tsem Rinpoche

    ‘If we trust in karma which exists, then there is no reason for anger’.

    “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

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    A few years ago I went to Tibet to visit and I read about Trode Khangsar. Since it was a chapel built by the 5th Dalai Lama himself for Dorje Shugden, it must be very sacred. I was very excited when I arrived in Lhasa, I wanted to go to the chapel immediately.

    At that time, I had a tour guide, I told the tour guide about the chapel and asked him to bring me there. He was hesitant. But he led me to look for the chapel anyway. Somehow he was taking me round and round the Barkhor area. I was wondering how come he didn’t know his way? Then I decided to ask the locals. When I said Trode Khangsar, they looked shocked and didn’t even look at me, they just asked me to go away. In the end, I found my own way to the chapel.

    Later I found out because of the Dorje Shugden ban, many people in Tibet choose to listen to Dalai Lama and gave up the practice. Those who gave up discriminate Dorje Shugden practitioners, they don’t talk to them, they don’t want to have anything to do with them. The locals in Lhasa told me Dorje Shugden is bad because Dalai Lama says so. They refused to listen to my logical explanations. They just kept saying Dalai Lama says Dorje Shugden is a demon, so we don’t practice.

    Tibetans always claim they are Buddhists but they are not open to listening to others, their action is totally not Buddhist at all. They way they despise and isolate Dorje Shugden practitioners is totally not compassionate. National Geography, Discovery Channel, documentaries have painted Tibetans as spiritual, simple and cheerful, but my experience with the Tibetans in Tibet says otherwise.

    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.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa was built in the 17th Century by the 5th Dalai Lama and dedicated to Dorje Shugden as a testament to the fact that he is an Enlightened Protector, who could not be destroyed by powerful fire pujas.

    Dorje Shugden’s importance to this current degenerate age cannot be overemphasised. He arose to protect the Buddhist teachings in general and Nagarjuna’s Madhyamika (Middle Way) Philosophy (the Correct View of Emptiness) as taught by Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Trode Khangsar, as testament to the official establishment of Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden’s practice in Tibet, is further supported by the fact that he was officially recognised as a powerful Dharma Protector, not only for the Gelug lineage but for the entire Buddhadharma, by the placing of the Chinese Emperor’s offering of a pandit’s hat over Trode Khangsar’s entrance in a ceremony witnessed by the 11th Dalai Lama, the Qing Ambun ( a representative of the Emperor) and Reting Rinpoche.

    Thank you Pastor Antoinette for this article that rekindles in us the awareness of the powerful significance of Trode Khangsar Chapel.

    Dorje Shugden previous incarnation is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, who was a great master, erudite scholar, logician, teacher and yogi. The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close dharmic relationship. They often received teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was so popular that time. The people who served the 5th Dalai Lama was overwhelmed with jealousy and had him murdered.

    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen aroused as Dorje Shugden, an uncommon Dharma protector, who protecting the Nagarjuna’s Madhyamika Philosophy taught by Lama Tsongkhapa. The 5th Dalai Lama finally realized that Dorje Shugden is not a spirit but an enlightened Dharma protector. He composed a praise to Dorje Shugden and created a statue with his own hand to honour him as Dharma protector.

    The 5th Dalai Lama built Trode Khangsar, a Dorje Shugden chapel in Lhasa at the end of 17th century. This is the exact place where Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s body was cremated. Inside the chapel, there are murals of auspicious symbols and Dorje Shugden’s previous lives. There are paintings indicating how the previous incarnation of Dorje Shugden had made his promise with Nechung to become a dharma protector.

    The Trode Khangsar has been stood up for 400 years. Thanks to the Chinese government, this chapel is under the care of national level. This chapel maybe a tourist attractions to many, but it is an important chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where many worshipers and pilgrims pay their homage to Dorje Shugden. Most important, the sacred paintings and statues which are well preserved, are testament that The 5th Dalai Lama recognized Dorje Shugden as an enlightened dharma protector, the emanation of Manjushri.

    This is a powerful picture of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and the current incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche meeting together in the year 2000 when Trijang Rinpoche was 18. All three lamas are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In fact Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen was the one that first encouraged my practice of Dorje Shugden when I was 16 years old when I joined his beautiful Thubten Dhargye Ling centre in Los Angeles. I lived with Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen for 8 years before proceeding to Gaden Monastery in South India. Later Kyabje Zong Rinpoche came to our Los Angeles centre and granted sogtae (permission ceremony) to practice Dorje Shugden for life as requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen had tremendous faith in Trijang Rinpoche. Kyabje Lati Rinpoche was innovative, dedicated and very much focused on bringing dharma to many. He had tremendous faith in Dorje Shugden as I had the honour to meet him many times. He would seek advice from Dorje Shugden many times via the oracle of Gaden Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen and Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche have since passed away while the current Trijang Rinpoche is a perfect lineage holder and practitioner of Dharma while he keeps Dorje Shugden as his personal protector as he has done so for many lifetimes. This is a powerful and beautiful picture of three great lamas of Buddha’s lineage and also of Gaden Monastery.

    Dear Pastor Antoinette,

    Thank you for sharing in details the inside of this chapel and through this article i am able to view many rare and precious photos about Dorje Shugden. This chapel is now listed under the Chinese Government as one of the protection spot.

    It is from this article i come to knew that The Qing Emperor Daoguang have recognised Dorje Shugden as a great Dharma protector for the whole of Buddhism not just Gelugpas’ protector.

    Thank you for sharing.

    The Dorje Shugden ban is now 20years old. During this period, Dorje Shugden has been maligned and demonized by a series of smear campaigns designed to destroy the practice and wipe it from the registry of Tibetan Buddhism. But sooner or later whatever is baseless will begin to collapse and increasingly we see signs of that. This comment by ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ is yet another indication that despite all efforts, the anti-Shugden offensive has failed. . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

    Thank you Pastor Antoinette for this article. Trode Khangsar Chapel is a significant building as it was attributed to Dorje Shugden by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama, as the proof that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector. It was also a way His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama wanted to show the world that his earlier view of Dorje Shugden being an evil spirit had been mistaken. The paintings on the wall of Trade Khangsar Chapel was also a testimony of Dorje Shugden being an authentic practice for the painting depicts clearly the glorious previous incarnations of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who became the world peace protector Dorje Shugden.

    Ever since the enthronement of Dorje Shugden in Trode Khangsar Chapel, it had borne witness to recognitions by the Qing Emperor and His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama. Trode Khangsar itself is registered as a national heritage memorial, putting it under the care of the Chinese government at a national level. And as recently as 2008, the chapel was being renovated by the Chinese Government, which means that Trade Khangsar will continue in many years to come, as the testimony of the strong faith bore by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama towards Dorje Shugden.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Antoinette for the article and beautiful, sacred and blessed images of various Buddhas and Dorje Shugden.I’m really quite surprised and happy to know that the original chapel of Dorje Shugden still exists and it is being properly taken care of.It’s really blessed to see the murals of so many buddhas still in good condition and it’s like going on a virtual pilgrim. Hope I have the merits to visit this Dorje Shugden Chapel and more people visit to get connected with Dorje Shugden in the near future. _/\_

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
    Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    The reproduction thangka of Dorje Shugden previous lives was gently commissioned by Lama Gangchen Rinpoche in Italy.

      Thank you Paolorossi4444 for sharing this rejoicing information about Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche. May Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche live long and continue to bring great benefit to the teachings and beings.

  30. Pastor KH Ng on Sep 5, 2016 at 4:28 pm

    This is a definitive proof of Dorje Shugden as an Enlightened Protector. After all, why since the 5th Dalai Lama’s time that all the subsequent Dalai Lamas and even while the 14th and current Dalai Lama; before He fled to India in 1959; allowed this Dorje Shugden Chapel in Lhasa?

    It is there in its glory for all to see.

    Thank you Pastor Antoinette and Thank You Rinpoche!

    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.

    I think one can’t help but feel frustrations when confronted with anti Dorje Shugden people who just will not look at the evidence that is clearly in front of them and that is Dorje Shugden was recognised by the 5th Dalai Lama than supramundane and not mundane at all. But here is a clear example of the qualities of Dorje Shudgen which is why the 5th Dalai Lama established this chapel.

  33. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Jul 18, 2016 at 4:04 am

    What I understand from this post is that Trode Khangsar has been around for a long time before the Dorje Shugden ban, which is a comparatively recent development. It was built on the site upon which Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was cremated. So what this post tells me is that:

    1) Dorje Shugden was practised for centuries without any problems, before the ban came along

    2) Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was an actual historical figure and for a chapel to be built on the site of his cremation, in central Lhasa itself tells you he and his passing was important enough to be commemorated

    3) for a mural to be painted commemorating and recording his previous lives means he was a practitioner of great repute and worthy of taking refuge in. Since he is of this level of attainments, how is it possible that such a being would take rebirth as a spirit? What hope does it leave for the rest of us if someone of his level of attainments ended up as a spirit?

    4) the Dalai Lama says that when he instituted the Dorje Shugden ban, he was merely continuing the actions of the 5th Dalai Lama and 13th Dalai Lama. Well, if Dorje Shugden practice is SO bad, how come the 13th Dalai Lama didn’t order Trode Khangsar to be demolished? It’s not as though Trode Khangsar was built during his time; it already existed during his time. So why did the 13th Dalai Lama allow the practice to be perpetuated in central Lhasa during his entire reign, instead of destroying a chapel DEDICATED to Dorje Shugden so no one would remember and rely on him?

    The fact is that Trode Khangsar has been a chapel to Dorje Shugden for 400 years, and continues to be one because there is nothing wrong with the practice. Hence Trode Khangsar’s very existence proves that the ban is totally baseless and all of the reasons given to uphold it are illogical.

  34. CindyH on Jun 20, 2016 at 12:46 am

    Materials from the 5th Dalai Lama’s early reservations about Dorje Shugden have been bandied around by those in support of the Dalai Lama’s ban as vague justification for such ban. Yet, it would be wrong to still use those justifications since the 5th Dalai Lama eventually acknowledged Dorje Shugden as a powerful Dharma Protector. This is evident not only from the 5th Dalai Lama’s composition of a prayer to Dorje Shugden (which incidentally was the first prayer ever dedicated to Dorje Shugden) but also in the existence of the resplendent Trode Kangsar which was commissioned by the 5th Dalai Lama for Dorje Shugden. What is amazing (not to mention really fortunate) is that such significant historical information relating to Dorje Shugden has survived (after 400 years) to date and is even now preserved as a national heritage monument.

  35. Julien Roth on Apr 11, 2016 at 12:46 am

    The first thing that came to my mind after reading this article was the fact that this Dorge Shugden chapel is 400 years old! I mean wow that is really old and its hard to believe. The only thing that we can take out of that is how Dorje Shugdens teachings have been around for hundreds of years. The fact that a Dorje Shugden chapel even existed so long ago means that Dorje Shugden had a presence even then. It may not have been as big a presence as it does today, but that just shows how far Dorje Shugden has grown and how his teachings have spread all over the world. Thank you for all the extra information Rinpoche. I wish that Dorje Shugdens teachings remain on the earth for many many many more years to come.

    自第五世达赖尊者以来至今,到底多杰雄登是魔还是佛的课题一直引起许多争议。

    本人想说的是:
    如果说多杰雄登是魔或是邪灵,那么当时的敏珠林喇嘛在进行火供仪式时就不会面对种种的困难而到最后还是不能够直接的消灭多杰雄登。

    如果说多杰雄登是魔或是邪灵,那么第五世达赖尊者当时为什么要赞颂多杰雄登而且还要亲手制造多杰雄登像和承认他作为护法。

    如果说多杰雄登是魔或是邪灵,为什么祚爹康萨(Trode Khangsar)里供奉的多杰雄登还可以维持至今,而且被注册为国家遗产。

    以上种种的因素和眼前的一切是值得让我们深虑这背后的实情。

    感谢仁波切和Pastor Antoinette 分享此珍贵的资料。此博文可以让更多人了解这历史悠久的祚爹康萨,也可考虑为旅游西藏必到的其中一个地方。

  37. Yeo Kwai Gin on Mar 28, 2016 at 1:54 am

    谢谢Pastor Antoinnete Kass 的分享关于400年多杰雄登护法位于拉萨的Trode Khangsar的寺庙的历史与讲解。

    这是非常难得的和珍贵的,因为直到现在为止,多杰雄登护法Trode Khangsar一直还继续供大众作供养,朝圣和法会一直进行着。

    自从约20年前的禁令开始,很多有关于多杰雄登护法的佛像,修持都不获得公开而且还被歧视,令众多的在家人和出家人还在受苦着。尊贵的第五世达赖尊者建造Trode Khangsar的目的,以上都说的很清楚,第五世达赖喇嘛当时还亲自撰写了赞叹文,亲手制造了多杰雄登佛像和在Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen 火化的地方建造起来的,以赞叹Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsan 呈现成为多杰雄登护法。

    但二十年前的禁令,让太多众多的在家人与出家人不公平的对待,歧视,欺负,隔离等等受苦着,

    祈愿尊贵的达赖尊者,观音菩萨化身的您,把禁令解除,让在家人和出家人都可以一起生活,修行,互相帮助,爱戴,世界和平!

    在此,再次感恩仁波切与Pastor Antoinette Kass 让我了解Trode Khangsar的历史,佛像地点的位置,多杰雄登在清朝时代的存在。

    感恩合十

    I am actually quite surprised and happy to know that the original chapel of Dorje Shugden still exists and it is being properly taken care of. This is my first time looking at the original drawings in the Trode Khangsar. The drawings may have been there for at least 400years, but it is even more amazing to witness and to know that the drawings are not harmed as well. At least the chapel can still be there to bless the tourists or whoever goes and visit it.

    Though it is sad that many of personal items and writings has been confiscated. Well, I can only say that it is because of our karma that’s why it is being confiscated. If the Tibetan Government has not ban the Dorje Shugden’s lineage, I wonder how many people would have been blessed. Oh Ps: I really like the special form of Dorje Shugden in one of the pictures.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing.

  39. Edwin Tan on Mar 18, 2016 at 8:26 am

    Dear Rinpoche and Pastor Antoinette,

    Thank you for the article and beautiful, sacred and blessed images of various Buddhas and Dorje Shugden.

    The different depiction of Dorje Shugden holding a cudgel and seated on throne is very beautiful.

    It was indeed thankful that the Trode Khangsar temple is preserved and allowed for pilgrims and tourists to visit.

    I must definitely go visit when I have the chance.

    Thank you.

    Thank you Pastor Antoinette for producing and sharing the article with many beautiful pictures from Trode Khangsar chapel. There are so much effort of preserving the 400 year old Dorje Shugden Chapel by Chinese government supporting the fact of Dorje Shugden is an enlightened Dharma Protector that is well acknowledged and recognized not by many high lamas but the Chinese government as well back from Qing dynasty until today. The wall paintings that depicting the previous extensive reincarnations of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen has opened up my mind with deeper faith that we are truly fortunate to receive teachings, advice and guidance of Dorja Shugden practice from our kind Guru. May the ban of Dorje Shugden practice will be lifted as soon as possible to end the sufferings and pain endured by many Shugden’s practitioners. May all Tibetan Buddhists united as one to spread the Buddhadharma to the 10 directions.

    The Trode Khangsar is a beautiful chapel and has great historical and cultural importance. I’m glad it was not destroyed during the cultural revolution and is now preserved as a national heritage monument. What struck me in this article is the information on the glorious lineage of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen which consists of famous Buddhist masters and scholars like Thonmi Sambhota, the Mahasiddha Birwapa and Panchen Sonam Drakpa. The statues and paintings are also of great historical and religious value and should be preserved for posterity.

    • Pastor Antoinette Kass on Mar 14, 2016 at 7:59 pm

      Yes Sarah,
      The Chapel is of great value in a religious way as well as historical and cultural!
      Dorje Shugden has been venerated as a holy Dharma Protector for about 400 years. The statues and paintings show his famous lineage from Manjushri, Buddha of Wisdom to Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s eight closest disciples and to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

  42. Chris Chong on Mar 11, 2016 at 2:54 am

    Thank you Pastor Antoinette to share this article about Trode Khangsar. This ancient chapel holds the history of Dorje Shugden and a holy place for pilgrimage and to get blessings from Dorje Shugden.

    However, due to the Dorje Shugden ban, I am worried that this sacred chapel might be in risk of getting targeted by non-believers. It would be extremely unfortunate if the non-belivers decided to do something stupid like what they did to the Dorje Shugden statue in a monastery in Minali town in india.

    One of the strong proof of Dorje Shugden is a buddha and not an evil spirit. The fire pujas ( which are considered the king of pujas ) they did to destroy Dorje Shugden are uneffective. Only Buddha cannot be harmed by such rituals.

    I pray that the Dorje Shugden ban will be lifted ASAP.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    • Pastor Antoinette Kass on Mar 14, 2016 at 8:02 pm

      Dear Chris,

      Indeed it is great news that the chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden and placed on such a holy ground is protected by the Chinese Government.

      May the ban on Dorje Shugden come down swiftly so that he can benefit countless beings all over the world.

      Thank you for your comment!

  43. Sofi on Mar 10, 2016 at 7:22 pm

    Its such a blessing for Rinpoche to share with us the information and pictures on this Holy 400 year old Dorje Shugden Chapel in Lhasa. This chapel was built by the 5th Dalai Lama as an apology and praise to Lord Dorje Shugden, recognising him as an enlightened Protector, worthy of being propitiated. It is so interesting to learn of all the holy and illustrious incarnations of Tulku Dragpa Gyeltsen.
    This Chapel has gone through the cultural revolution and still remain beautiful preserved. Certainly a testimonial to the wonderful protective nature of Lord Dorje Shugden and his practises to be beneficial. The Chinese Government practises freedom of spiritualism by protecting and restoring the Chapel as well as promoting it as a place to visit.
    May His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama swiftly manifests his true compassionate nature and to recognise the true nature of Lord Dorje Shugden, as his predecessor the 5th Dalai Lama had. May the ban be swiftly lifted to reunite the practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism. _()_

    • Pastor Antoinette Kass on Mar 11, 2016 at 10:14 pm

      Dear Sofi,

      Indeed, it is very fortunate to have this holy chapel, built by H.H. the 5th Dalai Lama himself, protected as a national heritage memorial.

      Thank you for your comment.
      May the ban on Dorje Shugden be removed swiftly,
      Pastor Antoinette

    Another success story of Kechara Soup Kitchen

    H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche had conceptualised Kechara Soup Kitchen based on his experience of great hunger. He understood that hunger cuts across all barriers of humanity and will unite people in compassion. Kudos to all who held Rinpoche’s wishes and went all the way to the success that it is today. Many had benefitted from Kechara Soup Kitchen and many still will.

    Menlha (Medicine Buddha) practice

    I truly recommend that you to be familiar with this great Medicine Buddha (Menhla) puja (prayer) as it is so beneficial on many levels, for the swift recovery of sick ones, for the dying or those who had passed and for our own well being. It had been said that at the point of death, if Medicine Buddha’s mantra is recited, then one will take rebirth in the human realm. Such is the compassion of Menhla.

    Tibetan leadership forces Sera Jey monk to propose self-harm

    When a government forces a monk to publicly announce that he will self-immolate if the dirty politics in his own government do not stop, the situation is really bad. Monks are supposed to not interfere with any of the secular matters and only focus on his Dharma study and practice.

    Monks also hold vows of not killing also included himself. Suicide is against their vow and it is one of the major vows. This Sera Jey monk is willing to return his monk vows and kill himself just to raise awareness of the corruption of the Tibetan government.

    Tibetan government should really take a good look at themselves to change for the better. This should be a wake-up call for them already. The sufferings that the public feel will be much more if they stay the same.

    Kyabje Ling Rinpoche does Dorje Shugden

    Kyabje Ling Rinpoche is one of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s tutors. He is the one that is responsible for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s education. Since His Holiness the Dalai Lama is not someone ordinary and he will be responsible for the spreading of Dharma later in his life, they will definitely choose the best teacher for him.

    From here, we can see how great this Ling Rinpoche is to be able to be responsible for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s education. He must be someone respectable and excellent in his knowledge to be able to hold such post.

    How is it possible for CTA to choose someone that does demon practice to teach the Dalai Lama? If Dorje Shugden is a demon and it means Ling Rinpoche is a demon practitioner and what he taught His Holiness will be demon practice. It is not logical.

    Markham makes it illegal to ban Dorje Shugden

    Dorje Shugden ban has been around for 20 years and many had suffered discrimination and segregation from their own Dharma and secular communities. They are being denied services from restaurants and hotels. They are even being denied by schools and hospitals.

    Dorje Shugden people had suffered tremendously due to their choice of religion. It is unfair to persecute someone based on their choice of religion. That state of Markham recognizes the unjust of the issue and issued a public notice to warn their citizens to not use religious affairs to create trouble especially Dorje Shugden religion.

    Those who are found guilty will be brought under the law. This is a huge step for religious freedom in Tibet and hopefully, more and more cities and counties will follow Markham.

    Ever since the Dorje Shugden ban was imposed 20 years ago, the Dorje Shugden practitioners have suffered a lot. The CTA issued a directive to the Tibetans telling them to not have any connection with Dorje Shugden practitioners. Families, friends, teachers, and students are split due to the difference in their faiths.

    The CTA said there is no ban on Dorje Shugden practice, this is not true at all. There are notices put up to stop Dorje Shugden practitioners from frequenting. Dorje Shugden practitioner is not allowed to frequent restaurants, shops, guest house, and temples. In addition, Dorje Shugden practitioners are hurt physically. Nothing was done by the CTA to stop these harmful behaviors.

    These 2 videos are another solid proof of the ban. People are turned away because they are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In general ,when people know you practice Dorje Shugden, they will reject you just like how they did in the videos. The CTA should lift the ban as soon as possible beacuse it causes separation and disharmony in the Tibetan community.

    China’s passport is becoming more powerful similar to the United States and the United Kingdom. This new development clearly says that China is fast becoming more respected, and more importantly, trusted. It also means with there is a lot of international trade with the Chinese government and Chinese business people and companies. A more powerful Chinese passport also indicates a wealthier and more affluent Chinese domestic economy. As Chinese people find it easier to travel and access the people of the world, the rich Chinese culture and their philosophy will spread to other nations.

    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as the great protector Dorje Shugden after he was murdered by some jealous students of the 5th Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen made a promise in his previous life (when he was Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen) that he would protect Buddhism, in particular, the Tsongkhapa doctrine. The appearance of Dorje Shugden is to help Dharma practitioners of our time to overcome their obstacles in life and be able to focus in spiritual practice. For non-Dharma practitioners, Dorje Shugden will give them protection and create a connection with them to guide them in their spiritual path when the time is right.

    Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen the greatly learned master and emanation of Manjusri, was born in 1182. At the moment he was born many auspicious signs and omens appeared. This show he was some one very special been able to speak in Sanskrit at the time of birth and when he was 3 years old amazingly ,he could even read and speak Sanskrit, Tibetan, Chinese and Mongolian without having been taught. Wow…. Just within a few years he was able to recite lengthy works of philosophy and Tantra by heart. Since then he studied under many great masers in various subjects such in the Tibetan and Sanskrit languages, astrology, medicine and art, grammar, poetry, and music. He even composed numerous comprehensive logical commentaries, and his skill in debate was unmatched and he possessed with limitless knowledge. He was one of the greatest scholars in Tibetan history.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for this sharing.

    In modern era where social media is a stools of getting connected , we receives latest updates and news from every corner of the world. Long lost friends too can be connected. Its highly particular and historically in some cases. The Facebook is one of the most popular social networking sites. Its popularity and active users increased and still growing rapidly. Although Facebook has benefits and disadvantages, it can be an indispensable tool for many business users.

    Spectacular Dorje Shugden Mural in Kathmandu, Nepal!

    Rinpoche had commissioned a Dorje Shugden Mural in the heart of Kathmandu Valley recently. It is definitely first of its kind and Dorje Shugden will be able to bless whoever that passes by that busy road every day. It is designed in such a way that its soft to the eyes but yet still striking enough to catch their attention. Gold paints are used so the mantras will be visible even at night when it reflects lights.

    The mural is located on Charkhal Road in Dilli Bazaar, the mural can be found midway between our two Dorje Shugden chapels which are in Putalisadak and Chabahil. It is also very close to one of Kathmandu’s largest shopping malls (City Centre Mall), with lots of shops, restaurants, and colleges nearby. The road itself is a very busy thoroughfare, with hundreds (if not thousands) of people driving through daily.

    This mural is signifying the religious freedom that we have in Nepal. They do not interfere with any religions unless it is influencing the public in a bad way. Nepal is truly a democratic country and everyone can enjoy their rights freely without the fear of being persecuted unfairly.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

You can see little Zopa baby who is a Kechara resident doggie looking for the snacks in this cute video. She is kept busy and entertained! Tsem Rinpoche

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