Gameng Kuten in Rabten Choeling

In November 2014, the famous Gameng Duldzin Kuten (oracle) of Gaden Monastery visited Rabten Choeling in Switzerland, where he took trance of our great protector Dorje Shugden. The visit of the Gameng oracle is a much anticipated yearly tradition (at the request of His Eminence Gonsar Rinpoche many years ago), during which blessings and precious advice are dispensed for the growth of the Dharma in the region.

This year’s visit was no different. Following a special invocation ceremony, the Gameng oracle took trance of Duldzin (the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden) who gave special blessings to both His Eminence Tenzin Rabten Rinpoche and His Eminence Gonsar Rinpoche.

Present during the trance were notable Geshes and monks, amongst them Geshe Thubten Rinpoche, a great scholar who taught in both Serpom and Shar Gaden monasteries, Geshe Kunga and Geshe Losang Tsepa from Sera Monastery, Geshe Kunga from Tibet, guests from Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s Dungkar Gompa in Darjeeling, and many others.

During the trance, Gonsar Rinpoche also requested Lord Duldzin for teachings and advice. Speaking through the Gameng oracle, Duldzin requested Gonsar Rinpoche to live long and continue the work he has been doing for the growth of the Gaden lineage and for the benefit of all sentient beings. In particular, during these current times when the situation is very difficult for our vajra brothers and sisters, Duldzin advised Gonsar Rinpoche to continue shouldering this sacred responsibility as he has been doing for so many years.

During these degenerate times when knowledgeable and experienced spiritual guides from a pure, untainted lineage are difficult to come by, senior lamas like Gonsar Rinpoche are truly precious, especially with the ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice still in place. Thus, in his great compassion and wisdom, Dorje Shugden has recognized the importance of the work H.E. Gonsar Rinpoche, H.E. Rabten Rinpoche and their students are engaged in for the furtherance of Lama Tsongkapa’s lineage.

We at would like to extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to H.E. Gonsar Rinpoche for his kindness and continuous effort to turn the wheel of Dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings. We pray that H.E. Gonsar Rinpoche will have a long and healthy life, and for the continued growth of his works.

  1. The protector in the form of Duldzin is really kind to bless the high lamas and the lay students for the spread of Je Tsongkhapa’s tradition. Gonsar and Rabten are truly working on spreading the teachings and preserving the Je Rinpoche tradition all over the world.

  2. The five forms of Dorje Shugden are breathtaking. Amazing.

  3. Oh i did not know monks from Sera also consulted the oracle as well? Has the ban been lifted for Sera monastery. Anyways wonderful job for the site to bring us the oracle advising Gonsar Rinpoche.

  4. Thank you, Dorje Shugden for blessing these great Lamas to be healthy and live long so that we the practitioners can always be guided and taught the great scriptures of our Tsongkapa lineage.

    Yes the images are breathtakingly beautiful.

  5. It is just great to know that protector came in the form of Duldzin to bless. It is just great to know that Dorje Shugden is always blessing these great lamas that have been doing so much for the Shugden community.

    The photos of the statues are just amazing.. I just love all the images of the statues. It is so holy.

  6. I too share’s sentiment for H.E. Gonsar Rinpoche to live long healthy life and for him to continue turning the wheel of Dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings. With the advent of the ban on Dorje Shugden’s practise, pure untainted lineage are indeed difficult to come by and H.E. Gonsar Rinpoche should be treasured.

    I love the statues for the 5 family of Protector Dorje Shugden which were so beautifully painted and dressed, exuding their powerful energies. Those in Rabten Choeling, Switzerland is so blessed to have the Oracle, Gameng Duldzin Kuten take trance of Lord Dorje Shugden annually.

    Thank for sharing this interesting article.

  7. Such blessings for so many high lamas to gather and have Dorje Shugden oracle take trance.

    It’s beautiful how Lord Duldzin, the peaceful Dorje Shugden via the Gameng Kuten gave a teaching on the request of Gonsar Rinpoche.

    Lord Duldzin requested Gonsar Rinpoche to live long and continue his work for the growth of the Gaden lineage and for the benefit of all sentient beings. In these current times of difficult situation Gonsar Rinpoche was requested by the Protector to continue shouldering this sacred responsibility.

    The importance of the works of H.E. Gonsar Rinpoche, H.E. Rabten Rinpoche and their students to further the teachings of Lama Tsongkapa’s lineage, is commended by Dorje Shugden. So, how can the Protector be bad? Dorje Shugden is doing what he had promised which is to protect the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa and to further the Dharma?

    Thank you to H.E. Gonsar Rinpoche for his kindness and continuous effort to turn the wheel of Dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    Thank you for the inclusion of the beautiful statues of the 5 families of Dorje Shugden.

  8. Dear Dalai Lama,

    Since you started the cruel ban against the 350 year Dorje Shugden practice, how has it benefit your Tibetan society and Buddhism in the world? Things have become worse and most educated Tibetans can see this. They don’t speak out not because they don’t see your ban as wrong, but you instill fear in them and not respect. It is like fear of a dictator. I am sorry to say so. Everyone is divided. There is no harmony. Before your ban there was more harmony and unity.

    By enacting the ban, you split the monasteries, split so many families, split regions in Tibet apart, split your disciples from you, split your own gurus from you, split Tibetan Buddhism apart. You have created so much disharmony.

    It is not democratic what you have done to ban a religion within your community. You always talk of tolerance and acceptance and democracy and yet you do not accept and tolerate something different from your beliefs. When people practice Dorje Shugden you ostracize them, ban them from seeing you, ban them from using Tibetan facilities. You know you have done that. There are videos that capture your speech and prove this point. You even had people expelled from monasteries just because they practice Dorje Shugden. Some of the monks you expelled have been in the monastery for over 40 years. Many older monks shed tears because of this.

    Many young educated Tibetans lost confidence in you as they saw the damage the Dorje Shugden ban created and they lose hope. Many have become free thinkers. They reject what you have done. So many people in the west left Buddhism because of the confusion you created with this ban against Dorje Shugden which is immoral.

    You could of had millions of people who practice Dorje Shugden to support, love and follow you, but you scared them away. They are hurt and very disappointed. They loved you and respected you deeply before the ban. It has been 60 years and you have failed to get Tibet back. Your biggest failure is not getting Tibet back after 57 years in exile. Now you are begging China to allow you to return to Tibet to the disappointment of thousands of people who fought for a free Tibet believing in you. So many self-immolated for a free Tibet and now you want Tibet to be a part of China with no referendum from Tibetans. Just like a dictator, you decide on your own. It was your government and you that lost Tibet in the first place. Your policies and style of doing things do not benefit Tibet and Buddhism. You have been the sole ruler of Tibet your whole life and you still have not gotten our country of Tibet back for us. Our families and us are separated. Yet you create more pain by creating a ban to further divide people. Please have compassion.

    No other Buddhist leader has banned or condemned any religion except for you. It looks very bad. You are a Nobel laureate and this is not fitting of a laureate. You should unite people and not separate them by religious differences.

    You said Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi did not do right to the Rohingya people in Myanmar due to religious differences, but you are doing the same thing to the Shugden Buddhists within your own society. There is a parallel in this. You separate the Shugden Buddhists from the others in Tibetan society.

    You have lost so many people who would have loved and supported you. You have lost so much support around the world. The Shugden Buddhists who love you number in the millions. When you are fast losing support from governments and private people, it will not do you well to lose more.

    After you are passed away in the future, the rift you created between the Dorje Shugden and non-Dorje Shugden people will remain for a while and that will be your legacy. Disharmony. You will be remembered for this. Not as a hero but a disharmony creator.

    Dorje Shugden will spread and further grow, but you will be no more as you are a human. No one wishes you bad and in fact we hope you have a long and healthy life, but we have lost so much hope and have so much despair because of you. All the hundreds of Dorje Shugden lamas, tulkus and geshes are maturing and there are hundreds of Dorje Shugden monasteries in Tibet who will not give up Dorje Shugden. You have made a mistake. These hundreds of teachers and teachers to be will spread Dorje Shugden further in the future.

    The gurus that gave us Dorje Shugden as a spiritual practice and you have called these holy gurus wrong and they are mistaken in giving us Dorje Shugden. How can you insult our gurus whom we respect so much? If they can be wrong, then you can be wrong. Then all gurus can be wrong. So no one needs to listen to any guru? You have created this trend. It is not healthy. Your own gurus practiced Dorje Shugden their whole lives. Your own gurus were exemplary and highly learned.

    Dalai Lama you have created so much pain with this ban against so many people due to religion. You are ageing fast. Are you going to do anything about it or stay stubborn, hard and un-moving. You show a smile and preach peace and harmony wherever you go. But will you do the same to your own people? Please rectify the wrong you have done. Please before it is too late. You can create harmony again or you can pass away in the future with this legacy of peace. May you live long and think carefully and admit what was a mistake in having this unethical ban against Dorje Shugden religion.

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.
