On 16 December 2014, a new Dorje Shugden monastery opened its doors to the public in Markham, Tibet. Home to some 200 Buddhist monks who were expelled from a larger monastery in Markham due to the ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice, this new monastery, Ganden Dhamcholing, was built and offered to H.E. Dagor Rinpoche through the kindness of loyal Shugden supporters and sponsors.
More than 10,000 Shugden practitioners from Markham and various parts of Tibet attended the grand opening of Ganden Dhamcholing Monastery, complete with auspicious pujas and public performances to celebrate the great fortune of the people of Markham. Below are some pictures of this joyous occasion submitted by our friends in Tibet, which are a source of inspiration for all Shugden practitioners across the world during these difficult times.
We at DorjeShugden.com rejoice and pray that the monks of Markham Gaden Dhamcholing Monastery will continue to uphold the pure lineage of Je Tsongkapa and for H.E. Dagor Rinpoche to fulfil the prayers of his previous lives and arise as an erudite master once again.
