admin: The Dorje Shugden practitioners around the world owe quite alot to Ven Geshe Kelsang. He with a good motivation spent so much to have organized international protests to let the Dalai Lama know the ban is not correct. Geshe-la and his people were very organized, committed and worked tremendously hard to help the world realize the rights of religious practice were removed from Shugden practitioners. Geshe-la recieved so much flack, bad press, accusations and bad reputation for the sake of Shugden practitioners which he did not care being a true Kadampa Geshe like Langri Thangpa. We were all inspired by Geshe-la's guru devotion and genuine hard work to propagate the sacred Buddhadharma all over the world. We at this website www.dorjeshugden.com sincerely rejoice in Geshe Kelsang's deeds and we offer our prayers for his long life, continued good works and his wishes may be fulfilled. We have always had profound respect for Geshe Kelsang. Mana What we are expressing here is short and no way justify the amount of praise Geshe Kelsang deserves.

admin: It is definitely ok to introduce Shugden to everyone immediately. Shugden's whole body is representative of the paths and stages to full enlightenment. Every part of Shugden is a facet of enlightenment. Therefore viewing, thinking, meditating or contemplating even for a short time will plant the seeds of awakening within the viewer's mindstream. When anyone worships Shugden, he may grant your immediate pleas for help, but ultimately and eventually Shugden will lead you to a lama, lineage and pure Buddha Dharma. It doesn't matter what lineage you find, but Shugden will lead you there. Shugden should no longer be considered a protector of just Je Rinpoche's lineage, but a world peace protector as Gangchen Rinpoche mentions many times. So for those in difficult situations or trades that might be 'shady', all the more we should introduce Shugden to them from compassion. When people are in dire straits, addicted to intoxicants, engaged in vice, or simply desperate, they don't have the right frame of mind to listen to Lam Rim and all the beautiful teachings yet. If there's a man in a burning house, ask Shugden for help to rescue him first then introduce Lam Rim and et al when he is safe & comfortable later. Eventually Shugden will lead them to Buddha Dharma whether now or a future time. That is Shugden's vow and why he arose as a Dharma protector due to the kindness of Desi Sangye Gyatso. TK

    THIS IS A VERY POWERFUL CONCLUSION & ARTICLE: The death of religion in Dharamsalahttp://www.dorjeshugden.com/all-articles/news/the-death-of-religion-in-dharamsala/ It draws a factual comparison between Tibet and Dharamsala. And if the Tibetan leaders have half a brain, they would actually take the “HINTS” of advice from many of such articles on dorjeshugden.com here! But as usual, we can expect they won’t and continue destroying their own future on the expense of their own people. Clearly, Dharamsala is doing an excellent job in this without the Chinese helping in any way, or maybe some of them are secretly getting paid for it, who knows, they are as corrupt as those they point fingers at anyways, and nothing they say can be trusted. So what are they complaining about and why are they still not realising that if they actually learn to stop condemning others, and actually practice what they preach, make friends, make peace, be harmonious with others, especially those they deem as their “enemy”, they could probably save their fast dying culture and tradition before they themselves become an endangered species. Haven’t they heard about “keeping the enemy closer”? So the only way to really free Tibet is to really free their own people from all their political agendas and discriminations. They are already so few Tibetans and they are all scattered, you already have one group for Umaylam and another for rangzen, why must you divide people more based on their spiritual beliefs? So silly, when will they ever learn? As long as they don’t make a shift in their mindset, the world bare witness to a culture that promotes suicide and dying right before our eyes, and this is all done by they themselves though they would like to blame the world (China) for everything.

    The phenomenon of oracles remains an important part of the Tibetan way of life. Tibetans rely on oracles for various reasons. The purpose of the oracles is not just to foretell the future. They are called upon as protectors and sometimes used as healers. However, their primary function is to protect the Buddha Dharma and its practitioners. In the Tibetan tradition, the word oracle is used for a spirit which enters those men and women who act as mediums between the natural and the spiritual realms. The mediums are, therefore, known as kuten, which literally means, “the physical basis.” In early times it is believed that there were hundreds of oracles throughout Tibet. Today, only a few survive, including those consulted by the Tibetan government. There is a long history and importance to this tradition, and I am angered that some Injis just come and criticise this without knowing much.

If you don’t like, it is ok, don’t put others downs and put HH Pabongka and HH Trijang Rinpoche down when you do. And how can you take Dorje Shugden Lama’s money and then enjoy and forget about your connection? Very bad, very sad for this is not how real Gaden Tripa should behave.

    I just cannot believe that His Holiness the Dalai Lama, someone who is perceived to be an emanation of Chenrezig and who is supposed to have clairvoyance would pick a Gaden Throne Holder of Lama Tsongkhapa, who is NOT qualified and because of that he could only serve a very short term, only 4 months into this position and he passed WOW! (jaw dropped!) And I am shock to read the story about how close he was (was even related) to Tsem Rinpoche and accepted sponsorship funds to build his nice Labrang and when the Dorje Shugden ban came up, he just forgets about the money he took from Tsem Rinpoche yet enjoyed living in his nice labrang? Since Dorje Shugden practitioners are supposedly dirty sinners, so doesn’t that make him dirtier for accepting and enjoying dirty money? Says a lot about his character. How can anyone let alone a Lama be so ungrateful and so hypocritical? So shameful… http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5835.0

    Join the discussion on dorjeshugden.com forum India has officially confirmed that Tibet is part of China. India can be considered as Tibetan and the Dalai Lama biggest supporter and sponsor. Not only they provided financial assistance to the CTA, but India also allowed Tibetan government in exile to stay within its domain. The fact that India, their host country has acknowledged that Tibet is part of China means that even their biggest supporter does not see the future in Tibetan government in exile. Previously, the Dalai Lama has also confirmed that Tibet is part of China. As events unfolded, it has become clear that the CTA should build rapport with China since Tibet is part of China and their future is depended on China. http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5834.0

    The CTA always said that they would like to preserve Tibetan culture and use this as a basis to appeal for donation from developed countries. However, as China is doing more to preserve Tibetan culture such as Tibetan medicine, the CTA’s effort will become irrelevant. I hope they will realise this. If the CTA want to stay relevant, they should think less about themselves and their welfare and focus more on the welfare of their people. At this stage, the best thing they can do is to build sufficient rapport with China to resume negotiation and stop creating division and schism among Tibetans through Dorje Shugden ban and stop encouraging self-immolation that will just create more suspicion from China. http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5832.0

    One of the reasonings the CTA made to appeal for support for Tibet cause from foreign countries and sponsors are the preservation of Tibetan culture. However, while they are talking and doing the small-scale preservation, China has done it on a much bigger scale. China has been promoting Tibetan culture and encouraging tourism growth to Tibet. In addition to that, they preserve and capitalise on Tibetan medicine practice and by doing so ensuring the self-sufficiency of Tibetan culture without having to depend on subsidy or donation from other countries like the CTA. Now, who is doing a better job to preserve the Tibetan culture? China or the CTA? http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5832.0

    An interesting article about the recent statements from the Dalai Lama:
    1. The Dalai Lama will return to Tibet as soon as China gives a green light
    2. The Dalai Lama supports One China Policy, and wants to be inside China
    3. The Dalai Lama confirmed again that His Holiness is not seeking independence from China. http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5831.0

    I am not aware of any conflicting protector of the enlightened nature. Since the Dorje Shugden ban was implemented in 1996, some people did draw a Nyingma protector, Dorje Drolo, stepping on a figure that looks like Dorje Shugden. However, this is only human imagination. In the original iconography, there is no such thing as Dorje Drolo stepping on Dorje Shugden. If you are referring to enlightened and unenlightened protectors, they are not necessarily conflicted with each other. It is just that you cannot take refuge to the unenlightened protectors, but maybe you can ask for their help. A good example of an unenlightened protector is Namkar Barzin that is part of the Dorje Shugden entourage. http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5827.0

    The Dalai Lama hinted that a conference to discuss the future of the Dalai Lama’s institution is to be held before the end of this year. As the Dalai Lama is getting older, although His Holiness hinted that he would be living for 113 years old, there are many who are worried about the succession of the Dalai Lama office. China definitely would like to claim the right to choose the next Dalai Lama. However, the 14th Dalai Lama himself has specified that his next incarnation would be born outside China. To make things more complicated, the Dalai Lama also specified on several occasions that his next incarnation would be born as a female. There is nothing wrong with this of course. Recently, the speculation about his incarnation has followed the Dalai Lama to Tawang, the place where the 6th Dalai Lama was born. – It is funny because the 6th Dalai Lama was not a popular Dalai Lama due to his controversial lifestyle – he was captured and killed by the Chinese emperor at a tender age of 23. Now the Dalai Lama is suggesting that the future of his office will be determined by the Tibetans, and a conference would be held before the end of the year to discuss this fact. It would be interesting to find out about the future of the Dalai Lama office as the events unfold. http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5829.0

    Lobsang Sangay uses the Dalai Lama as his political pawn. It is ironic because the Dalai Lama has announced his intention to be released from his political duties to focus on his spiritual role as a religious leader. Instead today, we see the Dalai Lama being used as a political pawn by their host country, India to irritate China, which certainly does not help the Dalai Lama and the CTA’s goal to obtain meaningful autonomy from China. I believe the real problem is Dr. Lobsang Sangay has no choice but to use the Dalai Lama as a pawn. Lobsang Sangay does not have the prestige and the credibility of the Dalai Lama. He could not secure meetings with the world leaders like His Holiness. If we follow the news in tibet.net, the most Dr. Lobsang Sangay can secure are meetings with parliamentary members of other countries – that only meet him for courtesy purposes. However, instead of making the situation better, by reaching out to China, Dr. Lobsang Sangay and his government, continue to encourage his subject to bash China and keep silent about self-immolation. Certainly, these manoeuvres do not make the situation better. I think it is sad that a spiritual teacher of the Dalai Lama calibre to be used as a political pawn because Dr. Lobsang Sangay and the other Kalon are incapable of building their credibility. http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5828.0

    The high stake summit between President Trump of the United States and President Xi of People Republic of China has started on an amicable terms. President Trump has openly state that he has become friends with China and is looking forward for good relationship in the future. The United States has been one of the CTA’s biggest sponsors and supporters. In the past the President of the United States have met with the Dalai Lama for the purpose of showing China that they can do what they want. But will President Trump risked such things? How will the new friendship between the United States and China affect the Tibetan cause? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/04/06/donald-trump-faces-first-major-foreign-policy-tests-syria-crisis/

    Tibet Burning Dorje Shugden has nothing to do with CTA’s failure to  give the welfare that Tibetans in exile deserve and to initiate negotiation with Beijing to secure autonomy. Instead, the CTA keep encouraging the Tibetan refugees to continuously perform activities that caused suspicion on China’s side (e.g., self-immolation, using derogatory language when referring to China, etc.). The CTA needs to take full responsibility of the result of the actions and stop blaming Dorje Shugden for everything that went wrong with their government. http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5823.0

    India, China and the Dalai Lama the fact the Dalai Lama is being used as a pawn against China first by CIA and later by India would not serve the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) in the long run. They should focus on building rapport and good relationship with China and not allow their leader to be used as a pawn against China. How can the Tibetan government in exile continuously saying in the media that they want autonomy from China and is ready for negotiation, but their actions don’t show any goodwill? I don’t really understand what kind of diplomatic manoeuvre that they are playing. http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5825.0

    An interesting opinion piece by Jyoti Malhotra. It provides the information that the Prime Minister Narendra Mode has drastically changed his stance on how he used the Dalai Lama and the Tibet card. Back in 2014, he was very conscious about being associated openly with the Dalai Lama, while these days, Modi has been using the Dalai Lama openly to irritate China. Especially when it is not acting in accordance with the India’s wishes. – Recently, China has vetoed the United Nations from including Pakistan’s Masood Azhar from the terrorist list. We only can wonder until when the game of diplomacy will last? http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5825.0

    I agree with what Erstvollzug said. Kelsang Pagpa and NKT may not agree with the Dalai Lama’s stand on Dorje Shugden issue and use that as a basis of not respecting his recognition of Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche as the reincarnation of the late Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. However, Kelsang Pagpa and friends should remember that Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche was also recognized by other prominent Dorje Shugden Lamas such as Zemey Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche.  Geshe Kelsang Gyatso himself is known to have recognized the reincarnation of his mother. Therefore, recognition of one’s incarnation is not something new within Buddhism and NKT. Just because Geshe Kelsang Gyatso suddenly does not agree with Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche’s incarnation status (after many years of silence), it does not invalidate the previous recognition of Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche. Just like when the Dalai Lama suddenly changed his stance that Dorje Shugden is a spirit after practicing this protector deity for many years, it does not mean that Dorje Shugden is a spirit. I am sure Kelsang Pagpa and other NKT members can relate to this point. Although the recognition would help to alleviate the status, at the end of the day, Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche would realise his potentials to benefit many beings. What we can do as ordinary practitioners is not to create further obstacles for this to happen. http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5814.30

Contemplate This

.…Instead of turning away people who practise Dorje Shugden, we should be kind to them. Give them logic and wisdom without fear, then in time they give up the ‘wrong’ practice. Actually Shugden practitioners are not doing anything wrong. But hypothetically, if they are, wouldn’t it be more Buddhistic to be accepting? So those who have views against Dorje Shugden should contemplate this. Those practicing Dorje Shugden should forbear with extreme patience, fortitude and keep your commitments. The time will come as predicted that Dorje Shugden’s practice and it’s terrific quick benefits will be embraced by the world and it will be a practice of many beings.
