Wish Fulfilling Dorje Shugden Statue

For many decades this sacred large statue of Dorje Shugden was in Gaden Monastery housed in the Lachi or the large prayer hall. The Lachi has a protector chapel containing images of various Dharma protectors of the Gaden Lineage.

In this sacred Chapel, this holy Dorje Shugden statue resided together with Mahakala, Kalarupa, Shidak Genye, Yamantaka and Vaisravana. Monks of Gaden Shartse and Gaden Jangtse would do pujas, prayers and rituals in the Lachi daily. Dorje Shugden was one of the prayers done together with the other protectors.

Many lay people from the surrounding villages would come daily to make offerings and request prayers in Gaden Lachi.

The statue was happily installed by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche along with the whole sangha of Gaden. Many sacred relics and mantras were put inside this image of Dorje Shugden. It was worshipped by the sangha of Gaden, the laity and many visitors for decades until suddenly, when on one of his visits, His Holiness the Dalai Lama said this Dorje Shugden statue should not be in the Lachi, but it should be placed in a chapel on its own.

The elite masters, tulkus, Geshes and over 2,000 sangha of Gaden were confused but nevertheless dared not disobey the command of the Dalai Lama. There were no votes, opinions or room for debate with the Dalai Lama.

The Dalai Lama ‘s orders had to be carried out without question, even if you had questions. The object of veneration for many highly realized beings, erudite scholars and senior monks of Gaden was suddenly ‘wrong’ and the Dalai Lama’s sole opinion was right. No one dared to speak up. It would be tantamount to some type of treason.

Now this holy statue is still in Gaden in its own chapel, and continues to be worshipped by many. But how it came to be on a chapel of its own still perplexes the many masters of Gaden who had no choice but to carry out the orders of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Everything is ‘democratic’ except the will of the Dalai Lama in old Tibet and in exile.

Whatever the case, hundreds still go to make offerings to this very sacred and old statue of Dorje Shugden that has granted the wishes of many. If you have a chance, you should visit this Dorje Shugden with sincerity in your heart. Your obstacles can be cleared too.

  1. In old Tibetan tradition, when the deity is extremely wrathful, it is covered in order not to ‘frighten’ people. Images of Pelden Hlamo, Kalarupa, Mahakala, Dorje Shugden are covered to show respect to the wrathful energy embodied by them. Admin

  2. Thanks admin for the explanation… I have always wondered why the face is covered. :)

  3. 怎么可以忽然一句话,就停此一切的修行呢?连供奉已久的护法佛像就如此抛弃?


  4. the ‘will’ of DL is truly confusing…

    However on the positive side, DS got a huge and nicer home now called Sharganden….no need to squeeze himself with Mahakala, Kalarupa, Shidak Genye, Yamantaka and Vaisravana in a small room (with respect)…and DS himself is the only ‘star’ in shargaden, wow!!! thanks to DL doing DS a favour and find him a new home, Thank you indeed!

  5. Last year I had the opportunity of a lifetime because I had the chance to visit the DS above when I was in India with some of the Sangha members. The energy was overwhelming and yet peaceful at the same time. It’s really a MUST visit place if you are ever thinking of going for a pilgrimage. The Sangha members there are so kind and friendly. You won’t feel out of place at all.

  6. Why Dalai Lama is doing this?? To separate out Dorje Shugden and other protectors, I belief Dalai Lama has reasons behind it, which He can’t be explained right now.

    I will think of positive side, like what Scott said. Dorje Shugden IS A STAR!!!

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.
