The Prophecy of the 16th Karmapa | 第十六世噶玛巴的预言

Jun 25, 2018 | Views: 8,126

His Holiness the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, previous head of the Karma Kagyu lineage.

In 1976, His Holiness the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje graced the opening of Urgyen Rinpoche’s new monastery called Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling in Nepal and gave a prophetic proclamation. This Nyingma monastery was built on a farmland just north of the ancient and legendary Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu.

The founder of the monastery, Urgyen Rinpoche is a Buddhist master of the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions and hence the monastery follows the same lineages. This monastery was built under the guidance and direction of the 16th Karmapa. The King of Nepal, His Majesty King Birendra Bir Bikram Shah also graced the opening of the monastery. After the opening ceremonies were completed, the Karmapa appointed 24-year old Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche as the abbot of the new monastery. During the opening, the Karmapa presided over elaborate consecration ceremonies to bless the monastery.

According to an account in Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s collected works (sungbum), the Karmapa came across a statue of Dorje Drolo during an inspection of the new monastery. Dorje Drolo is a wrathful emanation of Guru Rinpoche. This particular image was pressing down upon a smaller figure of a monk with a round hat, under his feet, that resembled the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden. The Karmapa stood in the presence of the statue for a while and then pointed at the statue and asked, “Who is the person that ask for this statue to be made? This isn’t Nyingma nor Sakya, certainly not Gelug and not Kagyu either. I didn’t ask for it to be made! This is not one of the deities you can rely on…”

“Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).”

– His Holiness 16th Karmapa

The Karmapa was speaking to a line of abbots and masters but nobody came forward to own up. So, the Karmapa ordered for the statue to be removed immediately. A man came up with an axe and a shovel to remove the image. The Lamas who were present would definitely remember this incident and in the account, a seventy-five year old man from Chamdo by the name of Samcho had witnessed this.

This prophecy by His Holiness Karmapa is an unusual one because he had no known history or prior relations to the practice of Dorje Shugden. The Karmapa himself is the head of Karma Kagyu and there is no known history between the Karma Kagyu and the practice of Dorje Shugden either. The prophecy could be indicating that when the political issues surrounding the practice ceases to be, there will be future growth and proliferation of Dorje Shugden’s practice. Karmapa was known for his powerful clairvoyance. When he made such a prediction, it will come true. The 16th Karmapa and the current one has never made one negative comment about Dorje Shugden ever. 

The original and authentic depictions of Dorje Drolo, the wrathful emanation of Guru Rinpoche, did not have him stepping on a monk who is suppose to be Dorje Shugden. The phenomena of portraying Dorje Shugden under Dorje Drolo is a something concocted and offensive to many people. This does not create religious harmony.

His Holiness Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was a great scholar from Drepung Gomang Monastery. He was a powerful writer and tantric master who had received innumerable lineages, practices and commentaries. He has left behind many acclaimed writings in the Gelug world on the various subjects of Sutra and Tantra.

至尊第十六世噶玛巴让烱日佩多杰,噶玛噶举前任精神领袖。

1976 年,至尊第十六世噶玛巴让烱日佩多杰为乌金仁波切位于尼泊尔新建成的寺院——嘉宁雪竹林寺主持开光大典并宣说一个预言。这座宁玛寺院坐落在古老且闻名的加德满都博达哈大佛塔向北的一片农田上。

由于嘉宁雪竹林寺的创办人乌金仁波切为一名噶举派和宁玛派的佛教大师,于是此寺也同属这二种传承。这座寺院在第十六世噶玛巴的指导和引导下建成。此寺的开光大典当日也迎来尼泊尔国王比兰德拉陛下的光临。开光大典结束后,十六世噶玛巴委任 24 岁的确吉尼玛仁波切为新寺院的住持。在开光大典上,十六世噶玛巴主持繁多的开光仪式以加持这座新寺院。

据嘉杰札贡仁波切的著作集(sungbum)中记载,十六世噶玛巴在巡视这座新寺院时看到一尊多杰卓勒像。多杰卓勒是莲花生大士的忿怒化身。这尊像脚下明显踩着一位头戴圆顶帽的僧人,而这位被踩在脚底下的僧人,与一位名为多杰雄登的佛教护法极为相像。噶玛巴在这尊像前站了一阵子,然后指着这尊像并问道:“是谁吩咐造此像的?这不是宁玛派之像,也不是萨迦派、 更不是格鲁派或噶举派之像。我没有要求造这尊像!这不是你们可以依止的本尊……”

“虽然时机尚早,但未来你们将会需要依靠祂(多杰雄登)”。
~ 至尊第十六世噶玛巴

十六世噶玛巴如此对着众住持大师们问话,但无人走上前来供认。于是,十六世噶玛巴要求即可将该像移走。随后一名男子带着一把斧头和铲子来拆除此像。在场的大师们都一定会记住这件事情。根据记载,一位来自昌都的七十五岁男子桑措(Samcho)亲眼目睹这一幕。

至尊噶玛巴的这个预言非常异乎寻常,因为他对多杰雄登护法的历史并不知晓,先前更与多杰雄登护法的修持毫无关联。噶玛巴是噶玛噶举的精神领袖,而在历史上,噶玛噶举与多杰雄登修持之间亦无任何关系。此预言也许暗示一旦围绕着多杰雄登修持的政治问题止息,其修持将会增长与弘扬。十六世噶玛巴的神通力是众人皆知的。他若能给出这样的预言,它必然会实现。第十六世和现世的噶玛巴不曾对多杰雄登护法说过任何负面的评语。

这是最原始与纯正的多杰卓勒之相。多杰卓勒是莲花生大士的忿怒化身,其脚底下并没有踩着一名僧人(即多杰雄登护法)。把多杰雄登护法画在多杰卓勒的脚下这种做法,是纯粹的不实捏造,更冒犯了许多人。这么做并无助于人们的信仰和谐。

尼泊尔嘉宁雪竹林寺的创办人——乌金仁波切——摄于嘉宁雪竹林寺,即此事件的事发地点。

至尊嘉杰札贡仁波切乃哲蚌果芒寺的伟大的学者。他撰写无数精深的佛法著作,更是接受过无数传承、修持法及释论的密乘大师。他在格鲁传承中留下许多广受赞誉的著作,其著作内容之广泛涵盖显密之教诲。

Guru Rinpoche (central figure)

Green Tara (left), Dorje Shugden (right), Wrathful Dorje Drolo (bottom left), Garuda (bottom right)

Despite contemporary misconceptions about the pairing of Guru Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden, a number of important antique thangkas depicting both deities on the same painting do exist. Unfortunately, Guru Rinpoche’s wrathful manifestation of Dorje Drolo in recent times is often mistakenly depicted stepping upon a monk-like figure wearing a round hat representing Dorje Shugden, thus reinforcing the wrong notion that Dorje Shugden is a spirit. However, this does not alter the facts of older antique thangkas that showcase Dorje Shugden as an authentic enlightened Dharma protector.

莲花生大士(主尊)

绿度母(左)、多杰雄登(右)、忿怒莲师多杰卓洛(左下)及大鹏鸟(右下)

尽管现代存在莲师与多杰雄登相互抵触的谬误,但我们却可看见,在好几幅重要的古老唐卡上,莲师与多杰雄登在同一画上并存。不幸的是,近代人们在莲师忿怒化身——多杰卓洛的脚下画了一个头戴圆顶帽、象征多杰雄登的僧人,进一步强化多杰雄登乃邪灵的邪说。尽管如此,这样的邪见并不能改变多杰雄登在老旧唐卡上被画作正统的出世间护法的事实。

There are allegations that Dorje Shugden is a Gelug Dharma Protector and that he will not protect those who worship Guru Rinpoche or those of other traditions. This is not true as Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being and therefore, he will protect all beings regardless of whether they worship Guru Rinpoche or not.

多杰雄登常遭受如此的污蔑:他乃格鲁派的护法,对于供奉莲花生大士或其他教派的行者,他不会予以保护。然而,事实是:多杰雄登是出世间护法,因此,他会庇护一切众生,不管人们是否供奉莲花生大士。

Dorje Shugden arose specifically to protect Lama Tsongkhapa’s uncommon view of emptiness, which is the Buddha’s highest teachings on wisdom. However, he is a an enlightened being and he can still be relied on by practitioners of any other lineages or traditions. There is no limit or restrictions to an enlightened being’s compassion and skillful means to benefit sentient beings.

多杰雄登崛起,专为护持宗喀巴大师不共的空性见解——空性乃佛陀对智慧的无上开示。然而,由于多杰雄登是出世间护法,其他教派的行者依然可以依止他,只因觉者利惠众生的慈悲与善巧广大无边。

Vajravarahi (largest figure)

Buddha Vajradhara (top right), Mahakala Panjaranatha (middle row right), Mahakala Bernagchen (bottom left), Dorje Shugden (bottom right)

In Tibetan Buddhism, Vajravarahi or Dorje Phagmo in Tibetan is a wrathful form of Vajrayogini, who in turn is associated with the Chakrasamvara Tantra. In terms of iconography, she is the female counterpart of Heruka Chakrasaṃvara and is widely practised in many Tibetan Buddhist traditions but principally relied on within the Kagyu tradition. According to the Kagyu lineage, Buddha Shakyamuni is believed to have arisen as Buddha Vajradhara in order to teach the Tantras. Furthermore, the first Karmapa Dusum Khyenpa (1110 – 1193 CE) is said to have achieved great spiritual attainments through her practice. On the other hand, Mahakala Bernagchen is the principle protector of the Karmapa line of incarnations.

金刚亥母(主尊)

在藏传佛教中,金刚亥母,或多吉帕姆(藏文)是金刚瑜伽母的忿怒相。此佛母与胜乐金刚续相关。她是胜乐金刚的明妃,其法广受藏传佛教许多教派行者欢迎,但主要在噶举派中盛行。根据噶举派的说法,佛陀释伽牟尼为传密法而示现为金刚总持/秘密主。再者,第一世噶玛巴杜松虔巴(1110-1193)也因金刚亥母的修持而获得大悉地。另外,黑袍金刚护法也是历世噶玛巴所供的不共护法。

Kalachakra (central figure)

Buddha Shakyamuni (top left), Dorje Shug (bottom left), Dorje Shugden (bottom middle), White Tara (bottom right)

Kalachakra means Wheel of Time or “time-cycles” and is also a Tantric deity or yidam of Vajrayana Buddhism. The name also represents complex meditation practices contained within the Kalachakra Tantra literature. The meditations contained in this tantric system has the great ability to bring one to complete enlightenment. According to the Kalachakra Tantra, Buddha Shakyamuni taught the Kalachakra Root Tantra in Dharanikota (near modern-day Amaravathi) in south-eastern India to the first king of Shambhala.

Furthermore, Dorje Shugden for many lifetimes as great translators and lineage holders had been responsible for the dissemination and preservation of the Kalachakra Tantra in Tibet. According to the long fulfilment puja (kangsol) text, Dorje Shugden at the beginning of the puja is called forth from the mystical land of Shambhala, the last great stronghold of the Kalachakra lineage and practice on earth.

时轮金刚(主尊)

佛陀释伽牟尼(左上)、金刚力士护法(左下)、多杰雄登(底部中间)、白度母(右下)

时轮金刚寓意时间之轮,也是金刚乘中的一个密续本尊。此名也象征时轮金刚仪轨中的复杂观想法。这个密续修持的观想具率行者成就佛果的殊胜力。据时轮金刚之密法,佛陀释伽牟尼于印度东南部给香巴拉的第一个国王传授时轮金刚本续。

多杰雄登的许多前世都是享负盛名的大译师和传承持有人,对时轮金刚在藏地的弘扬和教住都扮演一定角色。根据多杰雄登的酬供广轨,在法会的一开始,行者会将多杰雄登从香巴拉祈请至此。香巴拉,是时轮金刚法脉在人间的最后据点。

    Mantras are sacred verbalized words that invoke the protection and blessings of the deity to whom the mantra is ascribed. Mantras are also the manifestations of Buddhas in the form of ‘sounds’, hence the various mantras of Dorje Shugden contain the essence of the Protector.

    22 years ago, the Tibetan leadership, Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) imposed a ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden. They have made statements, printed materials and videos to tell the public how bad Dorje Shugden practice is and Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit who can cause harm. Since the ban is imposed, Dorje Shugden practitioners have been segregated by the Buddhist community for worshipping a spirit and go against the Dalai Lama.

    Many lamas of other lineages also criticise Dorje Shugden for being sectarian. However, the 16th Karmapa with his clairvoyance, said that Dorje Shugden will one day become the protector of everyone, this is recorded in the Sungbum of Dagom Rinpoche. If a practice is relied on by so Buddhist masters such as Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, etc., how can the practice be bad?

    If the anti-shugden group doesn’t trust what the Gelug lamas say about Dorje Shugden, they should be able to trust the Karmapa. Karmapa is famous for his clairvoyance power, a lama of his caliber would not lie. What would he get from lying? There are also many proofs that show Dorje Shugden is not an evil spirit but because of how the CTA has been poisoning people’s mind, these people just refuse to listen.

    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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    愿今世的扎贡仁波切健康长寿。

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    OVERVIEW OF BUDDHIST TANTRA

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Can we check the authenticity of the original text itself and where it was from? I’m afraid just showing a mere old text that hasn’t been analyzed and so on isn’t going to be very convincing.

    The 16th Karmapa is a highly respected monk due to his high attainments. He is not someone that will simply make remarks or comments on Buddha’s statue if it is not correct or he is not 100% sure. When he asked for the statue to be removed, the Karmapa knows what he is doing.

    It was prophesied that we will need this deity in the future and true enough, Dorje Sugden’s time has come and everything needs a protector him like.

    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,

    The 16th Karmapa would not simply say things just like that, and especially about a practice that is not part of his tradition. No one has refuted this particular incident before, as far I have gleaned information sources on the net. The Karmapa line of incarnation is the oldest known ever being the first ever Tulku to be recognized, so it is a very holy and ancient lineage of tulkus. How can anyone make a statue of a buddha, stepping on a Dorje Shugden, who is in robes. Is stepping on a monk in robes an auspicious gesture, for buddhism?

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

    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

    The 16th Karmapa is indeed a great religious leader who lives up for who he suppose to be, where he ordered for the Dorje Drolo statue which is wrongly make to be removed, for it’s wrong and for the sake of religious harmony.

    Whereas his prophecy on Dorje Shugden as the Protector of our times shows his clairvoyance. Many might not want to believe what he had predicted, but this shows Dorje Shugden is not a demon but an enlightened Protector who we all can rely on. The Karmapa definitely will not said something will harm the followers or practitioners. I see this sharing quoting from His Holiness Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s sungbum as a prove Dorje Shugden’s nature as an enlightened being many can rely on and His practice is beneficial, and how great The 16th Karmapa is; instead of a sharing to convert everyone to take Dorje Shugden as your protector.

  28. Joy Kam on Jun 28, 2018 at 2:23 am

    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.

    16th Karmapa knows the powerful Dorje Shugden and the importance of us relying on him eventhought karma kagyu lineage do not practise Dorje Shugden. It is proven when he said the following “Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).” – His Holiness 16th Karmapa.

    The ban has really divided the Tibetans unnecessarily. I hope the ban on Dorje Shugden can be lifted very soon as more are aware of this unfair treatment to the practitioners. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    “Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).”
    – His Holiness 16th Karmapa

    Karmapa was well known for his powerful clairvoyance. Therefore this prediction is very important to Tibetan Buddhism because it simply means Dorje Shugden practise will be extremely beneficial to many and everyone needs him in the near future. It gives hope to Shugden worshippers who have been suffering from the unethical ban.

    This message also served as a prove and fact that Dorje Shugden is not a demon because the H.H the 16th Karmapa was a highly attained Lama and I am sure He knows Dorje Shugden is none other than Manjushri. And the Karmapa would not give misleading speeches or do anything to harm any practitioners.

    Because of the Dorje Shugden ban by the CTA, it is difficult to avoid people to further create more disharmony and sectarian among the community. This monastery which created the non authentic iconography of the Dorje Drolo stepping onto Dorje Shugden showed how ignorance and irresponsible a person can be to fulfilled his/her selfishness. Their selfish act is spreading hatred to others. People tend to think they are doing right because they want to please the Dalai Lama by following instructions blindly.

    I hope that the ban will be lifted as soon as possible for the sake of humanity and peace. We respect any religion, practices or belief even if we may be disagreeing with. We are in a world of diversity, colorful and interesting. Any religion or practice that teaches love, compassion, tolerance and harmony is a good to pursue with.

    • Tashi on Jun 27, 2018 at 8:07 am

      Could you please clarify if this text is real and not just some fraud that was made up? I have respect, but I’m pretty doubtful about the Karmapa saying such things, especially with the 3 Karmapas we have now. Can the Shugden oracle please decide if the 16th Karmapa did write this?

  31. Yee Mun (KISG) on Jun 25, 2018 at 10:14 pm

    If His Holiness Karmapa, the head of Karma Kagyu was known for his powerful clairvoyance, then he can’t be wrong with the prediction of Dorje Shugden right?

    Because of the ban, many are not able to do Dorje Shugden practice freely. When the ban is lifted, I am sure many will rely on this powerful deity. Dorje Shugden is the protector of our time during the degenerate age.

    Interesting prophecy by the 16th Karmapa, and love this phrase quoted “Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).”
    – His Holiness 16th Karmapa “.
    The prophecy given by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa clearly affirmed that Dorje Shugden is a deity that we can rely on.👍. Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this interesting write up.🙏

    Although the time is a little early, in the future you will
    definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).” – His Holiness 16th Karmapa
    The Prophecy of the 16th Karmapa is is truly amazing ,extraordinary, as he had not known records to the practice of Dorje Shugden at all. All these indicating and prediction of future growth of Dorje Shugden’s practice will comes to reality more likely. Karmapa was known for his powerful clairvoyance and none of the Karmapas the 16th and the present Karmapa has never made one negative comment about Dorje Shugden .The 16th Karmapa and Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche were very close and life long friends ,that’s the only known connection. And not surpressing ,they might have shared some knowledge among themselves.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this important prophecy. May the ban on Dorje Shugden ‘s controversy be over soon.

    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

    I remember attending a Kagyu centre where they invoked their protector Dorje Legpa to grind to dust the enemies of the Kagyu order, upon them discovering that I was a Dorje Shugden practitioner, I was asked to leave and never come back. This does not seem in keeping with the great friendship that Trijang Rinpoche and 16th Karmapa had. I hope this was just a one off isolated example. I’ve never been made unwelcome at Theravada Temples or anywhere else because of this – it makes you wonder

    • Tashi on Jun 27, 2018 at 8:09 am

      That’s because the Theravada don’t have dharmapalas as their major practice, so they are free. And as for the Kagyu, they do have a right to take out any Shugdenpas as they are fearful of the “connection” Shugdenpas have to a gyalpo that may be a “disruptance” to their practice.

  37. Gerd on Oct 9, 2016 at 5:19 am

    Dear friends, I don’t believe that the late Karmapa endorsed Dorje Shugden. But apart of that one slight mistake: The enthroement of the 17th Karmapa Thaye Dorje took place in the KIBI, not in Rumtek, in March 1994.

    • Karma Yeshe on Oct 9, 2016 at 6:02 am

      Dear Gerd,

      I respect your opinion. But it is not hard to believe someone like Karmapa would endorse Dorje Shugden. Why not?

      1. The greatest proponent of Dorje Shugden was His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the root guru of 14th Dalai Lama and hundreds of other great lamas. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and 16th Karmapa were life long friends. Very close and visited each other always. They knew of each other’s practice and shared information and shared dharma. So definitely Karmapa would have known the famous practice of Dorje Shugden of such a high profile lama like Trijang Rinpoche. If 16th Karmapa did not approve, he would not be good friends with Trijang Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche did not need the approval of 16th Karmapa, but hypothetically Karmapa would not visit with Trijang Rinpoche if he didn’t like the lama and his practices.

      2. Karmapa’s previous incarnation as well as the current one (both of them) have never said one negative word or comment against Dorje Shugden. Since Karmapa is the head of Karma Kagyu, you would think he would say something to ‘protect’ the followers of his lineage? He has never said or written anything against Dorje Shugden and this is very important point to understand. It has great meaning. Remember, during the time of the 16th Karmapa, the 14th Dalai Lama was still practicing Dorje Shugden. There is even a prayer to Shugden composed by 14th Dalai Lama:

      A Propitiation of Mighty Gyalchen Dorje Shugden, Protector of Conqueror Manjusri Tsongkhapa’s Teachings

      By the Supreme Victor, the Great 14th Dalai Lama

      HUM

      Glory of the wisdom, compassion and power of infinite Buddhas
      Miraculously powerful protector of Manjusri Tsongkhapa’s Teachings
      Arisen as a lord of all wrathful worldly hosts
      Come from the abodes of Tushita, Kechara (Paradise or pure land), and so forth!

      Prostrating with devotion of body, speech, and mind
      I confess all mistakes and faults in which
      Out of delusion, I have contradicted your holy mind:
      Accept with forbearance and show your smiling face!

      Arising from the sport of non-dual bliss and void
      Are offerings and torma of flesh and blood heaped like a mountain
      First portions of milk, yogurt, beer and tea swirling like the ocean
      Auspicious signs and substances and various animals
      Peaceful and wrathful ornaments, enemy-destroying weapons and armor
      Amassed samaya substances, outer, inner, and secret, without exception!

      Having fulfilled your heart commitment and purified degeneration
      By making these actually arranged and visualized offerings
      Increase Lozang the Victorious One’s Teachings
      And the life span and activities of the Teachings’ upholders!
      Further the happiness of beings in the Gaden [Podrang] dominion!

      Especially pacify all harm to us, the yogis and entourages
      That arises because of previous karma and immediate conditions
      And spontaneously accomplish, just as we wish
      All good things, both spiritual and temporal!

      Grind to dust without remainder
      Enemy hordes that think and act perversely
      Towards the teachings and lay and ordained people
      With potent, accurate, powerful great vajra fire!

      Especially, cause the saffron-clad community of Dungkar Monastery
      Brightly beautiful in bonds of pure morality
      To soar the path of immortal liberation
      On unified wings of Sutra and Tantra!

      In brief, we enthrone you, O Deity, as the supreme
      Collected nature of all Gurus and Protective Deities!
      From densely gathered clouds of the four activities
      Pour down a cool rain of the two siddhis!

      (source: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/the-14th-dalai-lamas-prayer-to-dorje-shugden.html )

      These days the exiled Tibetan government in exile (Dharamsala) ‘advises’ people to stay away from all those who practice Dorje Shugden. Do not associate with them on a spiritual or secular level. Children of Dorje Shugden practitioners are removed from Tibetan schools. Ill Dorje Shugden people may not visit Tibetan hospitals. Total segregation. But Karmapa previous and current does not avoid or ban Dorje Shugden people to attend his their teachings.

      3. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche who composed the text stating what 16th Karmapa did in Nepal was a close and very revered student of the previous Trijang Rinpoche. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was a lama of a few words, very saintly and a great scholar. He would have no reason to write something decades ago that is not accurate. He would have researched and spoken to Trijang Rinpoche for sure. For sure Trijang Rinpoche and Karmapa would have spoken about the subject.

      4. Thaye Dorje being enthroned as the Karmapa is not believed to be the real Karmapa. So some believe Orgyen Trinley is not the real Karmapa. Everything has their belief. Some believe holy Dorje Shugden is a Buddha and some don’t. Some believe Buddhism/Christianity/Hinduism/etc are excellent and some do not believe in they are. The world is full of opinions. The bottom line is Dorje Shugden like anything else will be liked by some and unliked by some and that does not matter. But you have no evidence Karmapa did not ‘endorse’ Dorje Shugden. But I can tell you for sure, Karmapa never said one negative word/writing against Dorje Shugden and that is very powerful inherent evidence in itself. The bigger issue is which is the real Karmapa? Tibetans always have one intrigue, confusion and talks. Better to give everyone religious freedom to practice without any criticism. Remember the Tibetan Govt in exile segregates Dorje Shugden people away. They also do not advise people to visit or get teachings from Thaye Dorje. Thaye Dorje followers are also seen as not cooperating with the Dalai Lama and his choice of Orgyen Trinley. You see in Tibetan society, there is a lot of segregation and bias. You must follow their decisions or you are thrown out.

      Below are pictures of Trijang Rinpoche with Karmapa on the many occasions their friendship caused them to meet with each other.

      I wish you well and I often visit this blog as it has much interesting reading.

      Dear Gerd,
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

      The source of the article was Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s collected works (sungbum), which the original Tibetan text is included in the article. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was a great scholar and known to not care or get involved in any politics. Hence, the reason Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche recorded this down must be that it has great spiritual significance.

      His Holiness the 16th Karmapa said that “Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).” Perhaps His Holiness is not “endorsing” Dorje Shugden, but merely stating the facts (his prediction) that “you” (those present at that time, including many monks) and many more will have to rely on Dorje Shugden in the future.

      It is not hard to believe that the 16th Karmapa would endorse Dorje Shugden. Both the 5th Dalai Lama and the 14th Dalai Lama have written prayers to Dorje Shugden.

      5th Dalai Lama: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/the-fifth-dalai-lama-dorje-shugden-%e0%bc%a7%e0%bd%82%e0%bd%bc%e0%bd%84%e0%bc%8b%e0%bd%a6%e0%bc%8b%e0%bd%a3%e0%be%94%e0%bc%8b%e0%bd%94%e0%bc%8b%e0%bd%86%e0%bd%ba%e0%bd%93%e0%bc%8b%e0%bd%94.html

      14th Dalai Lama: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-fourteenth-dalai-lama-dorje-shugden.html

      The Nyingma Tantra Rinchen Nadun recognises that Dorje Shugden was an emanation of Chenrezig/ Avalokiteshvara.

      Before Dorje Shugden was widely practised in Gelugpa tradition, he was enthroned as a protector of the Sakya tradition. Sakya reliance on Dorje Shugden began with the 30th Sakya Trizin Sonam Rinchen (1705 – 1741) who enthroned and worshipped Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector. The supreme throneholder of Sakya school of Buddhism, Sonam Rinchen enthroned Dorje Shugden as one of the protectors of Sakya.

      I hope you will find the information above beneficial and understand more about Dorje Shugden, which we have quoted relevant information from traditional sources.

        If the 16th Karmapa did write thus, then why can’t the Shugden oracle already choose? Why can’t we put our support to the correct one that Shugden chooses?

  38. Tsem Rinpoche on Sep 15, 2016 at 3:11 am

    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.

    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!

    Dagom Rinpoche is one with Yamantaka and HH Karmapa is predicted to be a future buddha. Such beings do not have anything to gain by misleading.
    The fact that the 16th Karmapa can say that about Dorje Shudgen, shows Dorje Shugden is not a worldly protector that only protects practitioners/dharma from one sect.

  40. Pastor KH Ng on Jul 29, 2016 at 11:50 pm

    Amazing……..! The 16th Karmapa’s prophecy,

    “in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden)”,

    This is powerful.

    I have seen such a statue in a chapel in Nepal. I think it is still there. It is sad that some people do not follow the advise of the Karmapa. The statue implies the superiority of one lineage over another and also implies that others’ Gurus are wrong and have no attainments. This type of thoughts reflects the degenerate times.

  41. NgJesvin on Jun 24, 2016 at 10:20 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

    The prophecy given by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa clearly affirmed that Dorje Shugden is a deity that we can rely on.

    I would like to thank Rinpoche for introducing this Dharma Protector to us. May Dorje Shugden ban be lifted and may more and more people receive the blessing from Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden.

    Humbly with hand folded,
    NgJesvin

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    “Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).”

    – His Holiness 16th Karmapa

    The Prophecy of the 16th Karmapa is become true.. _/\_

    “Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).” – His Holiness 16th Karmapa

    This one sentence says a lot. For one, seeing the Karmapa spoke in the presence of Karma Kagyus, he is indirectly saying that even the Karma Kagyus will need to rely on Dorje Shugden shows that DS is NOT sectarian.

    Dorje Shugden was again prophecised to be the protector of our time by Lamas of high caliber, clairvoyance and who do not even practice DS. With so many Lamas saying this, the prophecy cannot be made up.

  44. Pastor David Lai on Apr 3, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    This is just incredibly ground breaking because this is from the famous 16th Karmapa. It’s incredible that he said that and I hope his prophecy would come to pass very quickly. I have read about this a long time ago and I am glad to read more extensively here. I think that not many people know this and I wonder whether there is any records within the Karma Kagyu tradition itself.

    It would be interesting if they did record this down but I doubt it. They are not so concern with the deities and protectors of other traditions since it doesn’t really concern them. However, I wonder what are the implications when this prophecy does come to pass. I wonder if it meant that Dorje Shugden would one day be practiced by all 4 schools of Tibetan Buddhism because he is so effective. I am sure that can happen once the ban is down. All we need is the head or lineageholders of each tradition to compose prayers to Dorje Shugden.

    Actually, I am so much as concern about that but I would very much like to see his practice become widespread because he would be very beneficial for all practitioners. Many people would enter the Dharma and many already in Dharma would have their faith reaffirmed.

    感谢仁波切在此分享非常珍贵的博文。因为此博文再次的证明多杰雄登护法除了在格鲁派,噶举派的领导者,至尊第 16 世噶玛巴,也曾经说过我们将来会需要多杰雄登护法。

    博文里有提到,至尊第 16 世噶玛巴非常著名于他的神通能力。这代表,他所做的预测都会实现。

    至尊第 16 世噶玛巴是一个非常仔细、细心和观察力非常强的高证悟者。因为,噶玛巴尊者当时看到Dorje Drolo的脚底有一位带着圆帽的出家人(貌似多杰雄登),就立刻叫人马上移开此佛像。噶玛巴尊者还预言说:“虽然时间有点早,未来你们将会需要这位护法神(多杰雄登)。” 除此,第16世和现世的噶玛巴也不曾对多杰雄登做过任何负面的评语。

    除了以上的证明,在此与大家分享上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切与其他写作的成员收集了205 名大师、格西、大成就者等,与多杰雄登有着密切的联系与修持法。

  46. Lester Lim on Mar 26, 2016 at 5:42 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, what 16th Karmapa said about the DS is indeed a revelation. It spurred me to research further. Soon I found out that there is another version claiming Trijang Rinpoche to have covered image of DS to avoid a disapproving Karmapa. Ultimately, the first version triumphs because it was documented by an official Tibetan scribe. My point is, the DS controversy being extremely complex and layered, with interrelated political, cultural and religious factors at play, it is extremely difficult for the layperson to comprehend correctly. Too many heresay and personal opinions, not least from HHDL. Proponents and opponents choose to see the issue strictly from their own perspective, resulting in painful stalemates leading true spiritual seekers nowhere. Nevertheless, I believe that understanding with objectivity will nullify any reasons put forth to ban the practice. These reasons in turn, if we were to recall, are largely political and premised upon faith in the HHDL institution. Most Buddhists are interested in spiritual salvation, not the Tibetan cause. Knowing the DS issue in its entirety will therefore be helpful. As such, I humbly suggest that perhaps a concept map (as attached), live or not, is created, to welcome everyone, for or against DS, to contribute. Or maybe the knowledgeable in KH could generate possible arguments from both sides. In fact, there is no need to arbitrate. Let logic, for and against, speaks. The truth shall set the meritorious free. _/\_

      Dear Lester,
      Thank you for your comments. From what you mentioned, it showed that you really took the time to read, understand and have good grasp of what you read. Thank you also for the good suggestion of the concept map. To further your understanding, please have a look at this series of Dorje Shugden teaching videos, I hope you will find them helpful: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugden-teaching-videos.html

I think you may find it interesting: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/can-tibetan-lamas-make-mistakes.html

    • Valentina Suhendra on Mar 26, 2016 at 9:47 pm

      Dear Lester

      Thank you for your comment. I agree with you that most Buddhists are more interested in spiritual salvation rather than Tibetan cause. At the end of the day, the main reasons that we are attracted to Buddhism in the first place are the logic and the answer of our deepest questions, and not the politics.

      There were many witnesses when Karmapa the 16th said “Although the time is a little early, in the future you will definitely need to rely on this deity.” The 16th Karmapa was expressing his displeasure because the iconography of Dorje Drolo was not depicted accurately. Before the DS controversy, there were no Nyingma protector depicted as stepping upon Dorje Shugden. In addition to witness testimony, this event was recorded in Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s Sungbum (collected works).

      I understand that you found another account that said this is not the case although the source of that account is doubtful. But for the sake of the arguments pros and cons, I have created a concept chart to reason why the another account that Trijang Rinpoche covered DS image to prevent the 16th Karmapa displeasure does not make sense.

      Kind regards

      Valentina

        Thanks all for the suggested posts. The concept map I have attached is just an example. If fully elaborated, it could be very extensive. For example, there are very thorough studies done on the historical veracity of DS, stating that he is ultimately a Gyalpo. There is also another line of argument that goes beyond religion, claiming that whether or not DS is spiritually beneficial, lifting of the ban would have seriously undermined the Tibetan institutions, thus dealing a perhaps fatal blow to all four schools of Vajrayana, given the fact that each already has powerful representative/s, real or perceptual, coming out to urge Buddhists to heed HHDL advice. In other words, mistake or not, this is a path of no return. These are just two arguments amongst several others. Anyway, in case you misunderstand, I have faith in DS and Setrap, this discussion is merely for the benefit of those who wish to know more.

          And Valentina, I like your mind map. Though it lacks rebuttal, it could be a major subset of the larger picture. Finally, I believe that karma ultimately rules. Everyone including HHDL is just playing along a completed script. Wish you all the best !

  47. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Mar 21, 2016 at 2:12 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this important prophecy given by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje back in 1976. With the prophecy given by a highly respected spiritual leader, we can 100% rely on Dorje Shugden in our spiritual practice and there should be no second thought about the accuracy of this prophecy. Many people have gained progress in their spiritual development by engaging in Dorje Shugden practice which can be observed from their testimonials published in the public.

    May the ban of Dorje Shugden will be immediately stopped to end the sufferings endured by Dorje Shugden’s practitioners.

    With folded hands,
    kin hoe

  48. Stella Cheang on Mar 17, 2016 at 4:25 am

    It is very comforting to learn that high lama from other lineage; i.e. His Holiness the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje respects the spiritual practice of another lineage. This set good examples for all of us.

    It is also noteworthy to mention that His Holiness the 16th Karmapa recognized Dorje Shugden as a deity we certain CAN rely on in times to come. It is important for us to continue to request for the Shugden ban to be lifted so that more people can benefit from the practice of Dorje Shugden, as prophesized by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this uplifting blogpost with us.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

  49. wanan on Mar 15, 2016 at 6:44 pm

    H.H the 16th Karmapa is a lama of such high calibre, his prophecy would have been nothing but the truth. The fact that the 16th Karmapa has nothing linked with the Dorje Shudgen practice, he remains neutral on both sides. His Holiness did not mention anything negative about Dorje Shudgen‘s practice but instead made such a prophecy. His Holiness has foreseen something in the future that is actually coming near to the truth. Many lamas are coming out to speak the truth. Many are starting to rely on this Dharma Protector and have experienced the benefits. May the Dorje Shudgen ban be lifted soonest!

  50. Jenny on Mar 14, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    Thank you for this most interesting account. Am wondering, just above the main prophecy it says that HH Karmapa said: “This is not one of the deities you can’t rely on…” please can you check if there is a typo as the meaning as it is keyboarded in your article is unclear. Should it rather say: “This is not one of the deities you can rely on” instead of can’t? Thank you again.

    • Pastor Niral Patel on Mar 14, 2016 at 11:59 pm

      Jenny, you are right, there was a typo in the text. It has been corrected. Thank you very much for spotting this!

  51. nicholas on Mar 14, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    The 16th Karmapa was a great master who demonstrated intuitive wisdom, joy, and loving kindness, his compassionate activity for others being beyond words or concepts. He was such a highly respected teacher across the Himalayas — including to the royal families of Sikkim and Bhutan — that masters of the other lineages would also call upon him for help and advice.

    Such a great master able to forsee the need of Dorje Shugden in future to benefit more people is not a coincidence but a truly fact from an enlightened mind. This is one of the great evident how an enlightened mind from different lineage view Dorje Shugden and request many of his students to respect him. What else needed to say more.

    For whatever reason we shouldn’t put down any other deity, practices or belief and we should respect them even if we disagree. We live in this world with so many different believe and as long as the believe encourage compassion it’s a great practice for everyone.

  52. Kelly Inman on Mar 14, 2016 at 10:18 am

    I first took the bodhisattva vow with the 17th Karmapa, Thaye Dorje, back toward the turn of the millennium; I later came to the NKT and have become a Dorje Shugden practitioner. I still have a great deal of devotion for Karmapa, and hope that the 16th Karmapa’s prophecy is coming true now, and that it is not too early anymore :). I rely on Dorje Shugden for everything as he is a perfect Wisdom Buddha. Karmapa chenno.

  53. Datuk May on Mar 13, 2016 at 4:02 pm

    The 16th Karmapa was a great Buddhist Practitioner and at His level would be highly attained and clairvoyant. A lama of HH 16th Karmapa’s level, his prophecies will definitely be fulfilled.

    I rejoice to read of this article which affirms my belief that Dorje Shugden is a Buddha and that propitiating Him will be the mainstream of Buddhism.

    However, 40 years have passed since this prophecy and it is my sincere wish that the CTA with directive from HH Dalai Lama will remove the Ban.

  54. Chris Chong on Mar 13, 2016 at 1:38 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this prophecy by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa dated back to 30 years ago.

    I have learnt from this post that the Karmapa is the head of Karma Kagyu. A lama of his calibre would have very high attainments and have abilities like clairvoyance. According to the post, there is no history of Karma Kagyu practicing Dorje Shugden. So, it is safe to say that the Karmapa will not be biased when it comes to Dorje Shugden practice.

    When His Holiness thr 16th Karmapa ordered the inaccurate Dorje Drolo statue to be removed, he also mentioned that the deity(Dorje Shugden) which is being stepped on by the inaccurate Dorje Drolo statue is not someone that we cannot rely on. He also mentioned that we would need to rely on that deity(Dorje Shugden) when the time comes.

    This means that His Holiness the 16th Karmapa say that we can rely on Dorje Shugden and we will certainly need to rely on him when the time comes. There is no reason for His Holiness the 16th Karmapa to be bias towards Dorje Shugden because their linage doensn’t practice his practise. Hence, what he said would be the truth and fair.

    This shows that we can rely on Dorje Shugden and he is not an evil spirit. He is a fully enlightened buddha.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    • Pastor Niral Patel on Mar 13, 2016 at 2:54 am

      Chris,

      You are right about this. Here we have one of the greatest practitioners of the recent past, and supreme head of the Karma Kagyu, His Holiness 16th Karma prophesising that we will need to rely on Dorje Shugden.

      Dorje Drolo, as the wrathful emanation of Guru Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden, as the emanation of Manjushri can both be relied on. They both have an enlightened nature, and there is an unbroken lineage, which shows us there is a basis to both practices. They are both very powerful practices that can aid our spiritual journey towards enlightenment and bestow the blessings of Guru Rinpoche and Manjushri respectively.

      However, the form of Dorje Drolo stepping on Dorje Shugden is something made up, there is no lineage for this. Therefore there is no basis for the practice of this form of Dorje Drolo and it is not something any genuine practitioner can rely on.

  55. JP on Mar 13, 2016 at 1:03 am

    In my opinion, a true spiritual practitioner respects other’s spiritual practices and never talk negatively about them. HH The 16th Karmapa is a a perfect example of this.

    This account also shows that “politics” do exist even within the monastery as not all monks are attained and highly realized. This is the nature of Samsara and we can never escape it as long as we are in Samsara.

    Last but not least, HH’s prophecy of Dorje Shugden shows that Dorje Shugden is not a harmful spirit. HH is a highly realized being and no harmful spirit can disguise itself from HH. Hence, this is another proof that negative allegations of Dorje Shugden is not true!

    It is totally our choice if we want to become happy or bitter. When we are not true to ourselves, we will put the blames on others. As we do this more, we become more bitter every day and we will never improve. It is as if we are sick but we are in denial. As a result, our sickness will never be treated and we will never heal or cured.

    To be out of suffering, the first thing we have to do is to look into ourselves and find the root cause of our unhappiness. After identifying the root cause, we have to apply an antidote to it according to what Lord Buddha has taught us. Lord Buddha himself had walked the path and he had shown us his methods work. We may not like the process, but we should be focusing on the result and work hard towards it.

    Did you know there are 24 holy places that are empowered with the energy of Heruka and Vajrayogini? For someone who is a practitioner of Heruka or Vajrayogini tantra, meditating in these places can help the practitioner gain higher insight and realization. Jog Falls in Karnakata state in South India is one of the 24 holy places. Many monks visit Jog Falls to do prayer and ritual.

    Thailand is a Buddhist country, the majority of Thai people are devoted Buddhists. Therefore, we can find Buddhist temples almost everywhere in Thailand. Wat Rong Khun is a fairly new temple. However, it is very unique because it is all white. It is a temple designed and built by Thailand’s famous artist, Chalermchai Kositpipat. Chalermchai Kositpipat builds this temple with his own money because he has a very strong faith in Buddhism and he hopes the temple will one day become a heritage to the world.

    Mr. Randy Pauch was very ill when he gave his last speech to the audience. In his speech, he had shared with us a few important points on how to be successful and happy.
    1. Always be appreciative and grateful to the people and things we have. In return, good things will happen to us.
    2. Don’t complain, because complaining does not solve the problems.
    3. When we are sorry for the mistakes we have made, we must do something to make it up. By just saying sorry is not enough.
    4. Be humble and not to react to the negative actions of others towards us.
    5. Be persistent and don’t give up easily. It took Mr. Randy 15 years to make his dream of working at Disney come true.
    6. Death is uncertain and it is beyond our control. We can choose to face death with a positive attitude so when we die, there will be no regret.
    7. Be honest and have integrity, it is hard to do but if we can do that, we will be truly happy and live our lives without regret.

    Mr. Randy had shown us that death is uncertain and we don’t have control over it. However, we have a choice on how we want to live our lives. We are in control of our own happiness. If we have positive thinking, we will be able to turn a negative situation into something positive and then learn and become a better person.

    There are four holy mountains in China, Mount Jiu Hua, Mount Wutai, Mount Emei and Mount Putuo. Mount Wutai is believed to be the abode of Buddha Manjushri, Mount Emei is believed to be the abode of Samantabhadra, Mount Putuo is believed to be the abode of Guan Yin (Avalokiteshvara) and Mount Jiu Hua is believed to be the abode of Ksitigarbha.

    Mount Jiu Hua is located in Qingyang County, Anhui Province in China, the highest peak being the Shiwang Peak (Peak of Ten Kings), at 1,342 metres above sea level. There are many temples on Mount Jiu Hua, the oldest and holiest one is called Huangcheng temple. A Korean prince called Jin Qiaojue engaged in a 75-year-long solitary practice and achieved enlightenment at the age of 99 when he passed away.

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

This poor boy is being forced to leave his friend to be sold for slaughter. Children have a natural connection with animals, and they know it is wrong to hurt and kill them. Children lose this connection by being indoctrinated (brainwashed) by their parents/peers into believing animals are here to be exploited, killed, and eaten.- from Lucinda Smyth FB page

    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

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for other?’ Mr. Lim is definitely one of our dedicated volunteers for the past 10 years. He dedicates his time to fully support our Kechara Food Bank programme, not only to raise #zerofoodwastage awareness amongst the public but also to help the less fortunate. Thank you for taking part in making the world better. Your great work is much appreciated, Mr. Lim. #Kechara #foodbank #volunteer - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

KSK Penang Team visited a dialysis patient to deliver dry food provisions for his family. He has a kidney transplant when he was 12 years old and for the past years is undergoing dialysis three times a week and this has put a financial strain to him. We will try to assist him in anyway we can. - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

One day, we received a humble wish list from this poor family, an elderly mother who takes care of her grown up son with special needs. ‘It’s quite uneasy to use toilet without a proper door but I do not have enough money to fix it,’ said the mother. Without a second thought, our kindest sponsor, La Hong Eu has decided to make meaningful sponsorship to this case. Big thanks to Bernard Ting and Vickneshwaran for helping this family to replace the broken one with a brand new folding door. Together we are the reason that someone has a sweet smile on her face. #Kechara #foodbank #care - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

Laying the rescued food down on the table would mean we will minimise chance of wastage from another level when our recipients will have the privilege to choose what they really need and want. - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
