Followers of the right path with unbreakable guru devotion, the team behind, I would like to say Tashi Delek to you as my first greeting.

In this century, there are negative views, deceptive talk and insults towards Je Rinpoche’s lineage, our lineage lamas, protector and followers. History has even been changed and presented as if it were the truth. In view of this, the sharing of information and facts in brings the truth to the modern world and its people. By clearing doubt through knowledge and fact, the truth surfaces. Through, the truth is presented to you and placed in your hands.

Letter from His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche

Since he was very young, the current incarnation of H.H. Trijang Rinpoche has shown many miraculous signs, which point to him to be not an ordinary person. His previous incarnation was the junior tutor to the 14th Dalai Lama for 30 years. Much of the current Dalai Lama’s knowledge, lineage and teachings were passed down to him by the previous incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche.

The current Trijang Rinpoche has studied under a few very qualified tutors mastering both Sutra and Tantra, and has developed an excellent knowledge of Buddhism. He is also heavily sought after for his extremely accurate divinations.

His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s lineage of incarnations is one of the oldest and longest and it extends back into time where he appeared as Buddha Shakyamuni’s charioteer, Chandra. Since then, he had a string of incredibly erudite and illustrious line of incarnations one after another. He is a lineage master of the highest caliber to thousands of monks, scholar Geshes, Tulkus and meditators in Sera, Drepung and Gaden. Although currently H.H. Trijang Rinpoche is young, he has shown great abilities again unsurprisingly in teaching, explanation, and conferment of Tantric initiations.

We at are extremely moved, overwhelmed and deeply touched in our hearts by His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche’s support, encouragement and endorsement of our website. We cannot express enough as we offer thousands of thanks to His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche for blessing us, our work and our aspirations to benefit many in preserving our lineage through this website.

His Holiness has brought us boundless joy and humility. We wish His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche an extremely long life and manifestation of all his holy wishes. Sarva Mangalam.

Letter from Gyelchen Dorje Shugden

The King of Dharma Protectors Dorje Shugden in full trance of Panglung Kuten oracle

Within the school of Tibetan Buddhism, there is a special tradition of oracles where dharma protectors may enter a body and take full control to speak, heal, give advice, pronounce prophecies and even remove obstacles. This special tradition has been safeguarded by a handful of lamas who are highly accomplished for the last 1,000 years in Tibet’s Buddhist history from Guru to disciple unbroken. These lamas are highly accomplished and have the skills to train a person up by retreats, initiations, meditations, cleanliness rituals and special diets in preparation to become an oracle. Once the oracle is fully trained up, then they are able take full trance of enlightened protectors such as Gyelchen Dorje Shugden. The oracles who are well trained by high lamas are very much sought after in Tibet and now in the outside world. Their prophecies and advice time and time again have proven to be beyond doubt with perfect accuracy. The Panglung Kuten who hails from Sera Monastery has been taking full trance of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, Jowo Chinkara, Shidak Genye for over 30 years. He was fully trained and authorized by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang the supreme Yongzin. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche personally trained up Panglung Kuten over a five-year period and oversaw every part of his training until completion. As a result, Panglung Kuten is one of the most qualified oracles within the Tibetan tradition alive today. He has been taking oracular trance for the last 30 years sought out by the highest lamas to the humblest of practitioners.

Our team flew to Taiwan and consulted Dorje Shugden via Panglung Kuten whether we should continue with In a spectacular trance session where both Dorje Shugden followed by Kache Marpo took full trance gave us a letter to continue’s work and said it will benefit our Tsongkapa’s lineage as well as sentient beings if continues. With full blessings and encouragement from Dorje Shugden Himself to continue the website, it gives us who have worked for the last 7 years great inspiration and strength to continue on. As long as the Lama and the Protector are pleased, we know we are doing our work well. Thank you humbly. We were extremely blessed to be in the living presence of Dorje Shugden and His minister Kache Marpo via the renowned Panlung Oracle. We therefore have committed to continue this website till the end. We seek to share the truth of the ban, the traditions, practices and lineage of Dorje Shugden continuously to the world.

With the blessings of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, H.E. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, Panglung Kuten, Kensur Rinpoche and now Dorje Shugden himself and many other great beings who showed their support, we are honored and grateful to say the least. May we continue to benefit and humbly ask for blessings, Sarva Mangalam. We share the letter with you from Gyelchen Dorje Shugden Himself:

Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche himself has highlighted one particular lama who he considered as equal to him in knowledge and attainments, and who held all the same lineages, transmissions and practices as Trijang Rinpoche. That person is none other than one of Trijang Rinpoche’s two closest heart disciples, Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche (the other being the illustrious H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche).

Zemey Rinpoche is the incarnation of a very renowned and high-ranking line of tulkus from Yangding, Kham in Tibet. His accomplishments drew the devotion of many disciples throughout Ganden Monastery and also the attention from the top echelons of the spiritual and political hierarchy of Tibet, including H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama. Zemey Rinpoche was one out of hundreds of tulkus and thousands of monks selected to accompany the Dalai Lama on his visit to China in the 1950s to meet with Mao Zedong and Zhou En Lai.

The current incarnation of Zemey Rinpoche is studying in Tibet. We are very blessed and honored that Zemey Rinpoche insisted on writing this letter by hand himself.

First of all, Tashi Delek to all of you.

The biggest contributor to modern day success is the advancement of Human Rights. Regardless it being in the political or religious, when the person in power’s motivation is to use his power to suppress those who have different views, they show their true faces. This tells the world that, the person in power does not abuse their power for their own agendas.

This precious website has all these while posted affidavits, reported facts, and help looked into the logic behind situations. This website has spoken up for those who believe in Dorje Shugden and the Gaden Whispered Lineage. On one aspect, the website ensures that the audience is not misled by receiving one sided information, any hidden information or gossips. On the other hand, it helps the other party think twice and have reservations before acting out inappropriately. This helps protect the Human Rights and spiritual freedom of practitioners. This contribution is very meritorious and commendable.

I recently received news that this website has expressed their wish to close down and I feel that it is a waste of so much years of effort. I would like to request the people behind this website to please reconsider your decision thoroughly as this is my greatest hope.

With respect,

A big thank you to all the monastic communities as well as their leaders for this great show of support and appreciation for the great works of Ds.Com in elucidating and supporting the truth about practice of Je Tsongkhapa Lineage and the lineage practice of the Protector of Je Tsongkhapa’s Lineage, Dorje Shugden.

    The letter from Geshe Lobsang Kunga, Head Administrator of Trisur Labrang, in no uncertain terms, points out that while DS..Com has been unwavering in presenting and preserving the truth, CTA and followers have been “changing the history of this (truth) and presenting it as if it were the truth”!

    The letter from Serpom Monastery points out that the CTA’s lies and criticisms of Je Tsongkhapa’s holy dharma tradition and lineage, particularly the lamas and followers of Dorje Shugden, are aimed at destroying the precious lineage of Je Rinpoche. Hence, the is the beacon shining on the truth in this sea of darkness.

    This beacon of light must continue to shine on the truth . DS.Com cannot close down. Truth must prevail. The ban on Shugden practice must be lifted. Unwarranted suffering of Shugden practiitoners must cease.

  6. Thank grateful to all the monks give the best evaluation and support The DS com were so much benefited to all partitioners and monasteries disciple. We are truly disciples of Tsongkhapa lineage. Please keep calm and supported

  7. It brings me much joy to read such support letters from eminent lamas, distinguished monasteries and reputable associations who have stood forward to show support for a website which has brought nothing but the truth to the world. Support like these gives strength and inspiration for those working tirelessly for who, like many of the letters stated, get nothing in return but continuously only work to help dorje shugden practitioners worldwide and people to gain knowledge and faith. For me, it has benefitted me in ways beyond imagination, as it gives me news from around the world at the comfort of my fingertips, and because of it, my friends and family have learnt the truth and support me and my practise too. Thank you Please continue doing what you are doing, because you have been the star amongst dark nights to illuminate the path and ways for many of us.

  8. 真是讓人振奮的消息。眾多高僧大德都對貴網站給以高度的好評和贊賞,證明了 DS.com在宣揚宗喀巴大師的教法和傳承,扮演著重要的角色。這是一份崇高榮譽,網站的全體工作團隊,辛苦你們了。往後的日子,我們應該堅守各自的崗位,為殊勝的法教傳承繼續努力,雄登護法的禁令將會早日解除,利益更多眾生。

I personally very much appreciated because it always bring me important news so that we will know what is happening out there especially help us to brought out our suffering to the world. Please continue what your are doing to help us to free from all the suffering.

  13. All Shugden lamas including Dorje Shugden in trance appreciate the beneficial work of DS.COM but it is immensely disheartening there are some Shugdenpas who do not appreciate its work; instead of supporting DS.COM in the Shugden movement to bring down the ban, they are criticising and condemning DS.COM for the falsity of their own righteousness and selfcenteredness thereby harming the Shugden movement in unity to remove the ban. Are they genuine Shugden practitioners or are they glorifying their egos and selfgrasping?

  14. Homage to HH Jetsun Namgyal Lungrik, Khen Rinpoche Lobsang Jinpa, Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende, Serpom Monastery, Serpom Library, Ghum Dun Gon Samten Choling Monastery (Pedong), Enchey Housem (Gangtok), Thogmey Rinpoche recognition to

  33. With so many letters of support from the Highest Lamas, the Monasteries, incarnated Lamas/Rinpoches and the ordinary Tibetans, it is without a doubt the contribution of the to the turning the Dharma Wheel, especially Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings and that of the Protector Dorje Shugden.

  38. Wow! Wow! DorjeShugden.COM has received an appreciation/endorsement letter from the Panglung Oracle for Dorje Shugden himself. This is an immensely powerful endorsement to DorjeShugden.Com for its beneficial works in protecting the lineage, spreading the teaching, educating the world, dispelling wrongful accusations, sponsoring Shugden Sangha activities and especially a big sponsor to Shar Gaden monastery since its inception. How incredible the letter came in at the most crucial and turbulent time, certainly the timing, importance and significance of this letter cannot be ignored or overlooked.

  39. I am so grateful for this website. Receiving such holy teachings is so rare. All these letters confirm how beneficial it is.

    Please stay on.

    “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.”

    Thank You

  40. You receive your news for the website from people all over the world and now it is good they all support this website. Because you have been a good platform for everyone sharing and receiving news concerning and related to Shugden. Happy to see the support from so many and around the world.

  41. The acknowledgement from high lamas and monks from different monasteries shows how important is to shugdenpas around the world. Please continue to spread the dharma to benefit more.

  42. I support the website to continue. I might be selfish to say so, this is not because I do not know how dishearted when all the hardwork and effort pour in but people just did not appreciate but make lots of accusation instead. I pledge the administrator to continue the website, for I am one of the many who receive latest news and report from the website, around the world.

    I have been spit on, and even asked to leave shops or restaurants or clinic…just because I am Shugdenpas. I have to move out from the town with my brother and continue our practice…The sufferings are real.

    Here I can see more lamas and individual monks come out to tell how beneficial is the website, and the support and recognize the effort and purpose of having this website all these years. Please do not stop operating and benefiting. Thank you.

    With folded hands,
    Deevyah Pariyar

  43. 我住在台湾,相对印度或其他地区,这里修护法还是比较安全的,至少我走在街上不会被指指点点,当然更没有人把我的名字张贴出去,被别人当成犯人那样被唾弃或责骂。




  44. As I read the letters, especially the petition signed by the monks and friends from the monastery, it made me think of the time when the Dalai Lama made it compulsory and mandatory for the monks swear out of the Dorje Shugden practice. Those monks were literally put in the spot and had to swear out to avoid being ostracized.

    Today, monks, high lamas and Dharma practitioners get together by free will to write letters and sign petitions to request for to remain open.

    This very situation clearly reflects the importance of to this community. This also shows that give these devoted Dharma practitioner courage to have their voice heard.

    I believe that this is a wake up call as we learn that the need support AND PROTECTION too. More importantly, support and protection is very possible and available if we step out of our own comfort zone and do what is necessary such as let the world know the truth behind the DS ban, put a spot light on the culprits so that they do not cause further harm etc.

    It is time for the DS community to get together as we are at the climax of the storm, moments just before clear skies and calm.

  45. With over 150 monks from Shar Gaden signed petition asking to continue, this may shows the website has played a significant role in their practice, that’s why they put effort to urge the website to keep up and do not stop.

    Seeing Professor Huang who is an expert in translating Tibetan texts and prayers into Chinese writes in his support letter and his reasoning to continue the website, is so great. Prof. Huang he himself is a practicioner and knowledgeable. His has high regards of as “powerful tool to expose wrongdoing of those in power who abuse their power”, so they would not dare to do as they please.

    Professor Huang regards’s role as significant and essential to a civilized society which respect human rights. He takes as the champion of religious freedom…With, we will have less who were fooled by fake news or propaganda, but more who see the truth.

    I thank Prof. Huang, monks of Shar Gaden, Rinpoches and many who write in to stand up and support this wonderful website, I thank for their courage to say the truth, to stand by the truth.

    Thank you.

  46. It is amazing to know Geshe Kelsang and NKT has sent their support letter for this website. For years I know many in NKT around the world find this website a great source of accurate information. Now Geshe Kelsang extends his good wishes. Congratulations!

  47. We are verry happy even Geshy Kalsang la also give the letter, that’s means we are nothing doubt the will not going to down .

  48. Close it and live and let live because we don’t want truth.
    stop making touble.

  49. NKT is the largest organisation that practises Dorje Shugden and is renowned for their work in perpetuating this pure lineage.

    It is without doubt that whatever information published on are true and without falsity.

    I hope that the administrator will not shut down and continue with their great work to support these great organisations in spreading the truth about the worship and practice of Dorje Shugden.

  50. Congratulations DS.COM! The support and appreciation to is tremendous, coming from different countries, institutions, eminent lamas and Shugden practitioners. Surely DS.COM should not close as it will backfire on the Shugden movement and preserving the precious lineage from destruction.

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.
