H.H. Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche Accepts Tenshug from Shar Gaden

Dorjeshugden.com has received joyous news that H.H. Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche has recently accepted a Tenshug (Long Life Prayer), requested and offered by the 700+ monks of Shar Gaden Monastery. Shar Gaden’s current abbot, Khen Rinpoche Geshe Lobsang Jinpa, travelled with a small entourage to Trijang Buddhist Institute, USA (TBI) to personally make the Tenshug offering to H.H. Trijang Rinpoche on behalf of the monastery.

Khen Rinpoche’s visit to TBI is significant in many ways – he was a student of the previous Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang from whom he received many teachings and initiations. This is also Khen Rinpoche’s first meeting with H.H. Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche, in his capacity as Abbot.

Prior to his appointment as Shar Gaden’s Abbot, Khen Rinpoche had contributed greatly to the welfare of Gaden Shartse’s monks, through his Dharma activities in Taiwan which garnered tremendous support for monastery. With the separation of Dokhang Khangtsen from Gaden Shartse, Khen Rinpoche continued his support of the then fledgling Shar Gaden monastery, for the teachings of Je Tsongkapa authentic lineage to be preserved.

Tenshug offerings are very necessary for our lineage lamas to live long and continue their enlightened activities. H.H. Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche accepted Tenshug after many sincere requests from Shar Gaden, thus showering the monastery and indeed the entire Gadenpa tradition with blessings to forever increase and grow.

We at dorjeshugden.com offer our sincere prayers for the continued growth of Shar Gaden Monastery under the leadership of its new Abbot and for H.H. Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche to have a long and healthy life to turn the wheel of the incomparable Je Rinpoche.

Many great masters have kept their practice of Dorje Shugden strong. Here we see Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche, meeting with Kensur Lati Rinpoche and Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. The Tibetan leadership forced Kensur Lati Rinpoche and Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen to give up the practice, but they went to meet Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche in 2000, a sign that they still had great faith in Dorje Shugden. Why else would they meet a Dorje Shugden lama? Despite the ban enforced by the Tibetan leadership, they held their own views strongly. Click on image to enlarge.

  1. This is very good news.
    May H.H. Trijang Rinpoche have long life and continue to turn the wheel of dharma.

  2. I rejoice for the good news. I believe this is also good news to all the sentient being. I wish all the sentient being can receive teaching from H.H. Trijang Chocktrul. And at the same time H.H. Trijang Chocktrul to have a long and healthy life to turn the wheel of dharma.

  3. What a wonderful news we received here. The HH Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche accepts Tenshug from his previous life student Khen Rinpoche Geshe Logsang Jinpa. What a great blessing and meaningful. It’s important for HH Trijang to accept the Tenshug. Accepting Thensug means that HH Trijang Rinpoche is intending to remain with us for a significant length of time to continue to turn the wheel of dharma. I believe it’s the people and the student’s karma that make one high Lama to accept the Thenshug as it’s also showing the sincerity from them to request for the Lama to continue to teach and benefits more people.

    It’s very important for HH Trijang Rinpoche to continue stay with us as long as possible to spread the teaching and give initiations for the dharma to continue to grow. From his previous lives he has been a great Lama spreading and teaches so many great Lama. In his previous life he was the Junior tutor of the 14th Dalai Lama and he also compile the Lamrin teaching from Kyabje Pabongkha Rinpoche where created the opportunity for us to learn at this degenerate time.

  4. I rejoice so much to read this article knowing that H.H. Trijing Rinpoche had accepted Tenshug puja that offered by Shar Gaden monastery. The long life of H.H. Trijang Rinpoche is highly important to The Lama Tsongkhapa lineage. Same goes to other high lamas that has been carried on Dorjeh Shugden practice. They are the leaders who protected Dorjeh Shugden practice for the last 40 years despite of all violence and whatever political issues at this moment and future. They exposed their lives for extremely high life threatened danger. There are killers and anti-shugden people wanted to kill their.

    May we all too live long to make wishes everyday that more and more Dorjeh Shugden Lamas and leaders will come out to fight for this ban that has been causing the sufferings of all practitioners especially the Tibetan. May Dorjeh Shugden gives them abundant of resources to protect and quickly lead all practitioners out of the ban soonest.

  5. Thanks for sharing the wonderful news, i am rejoice for H.H. Trijing Rinpoche accepted Tenshug puja that offered by Shar Gaden monastery. May H.H. Trijing Rinpoche live long and may the ban for DS will be lift asap.

  6. Thank you for sharing. Rejoice! May H.H. Trojans Rinpoche have long life to turn wheel of dharma

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.
