Great Masters

Lineage Masters, Great Practitioners, Yogis, Scholars, Tutors, Tantric Masters, Geshes, Abbots, Throne-holders, past and present, that upheld the teachings of Manjunatha Lord Tsongkapa, who dedicated their lives, in some cases incarnation after incarnation, to the benefit of many to bring the Dharma tirelessly to countless. And also they held Lord Dorje Shugden as their principal protector.


Their scholarly background, attainments due to the fruits of their meditation was able to bring benefit to countless Sangha and lay disciples alike. The holy photos we have here by no way even touch the tip of the iceberg in regards to the multitude of masters that upheld Lord Dorje Shugden as their principle Protector to assist in disseminating the Dharma. But a few both past and present should present a stunning array of elite-erudite scholar yogis to have graced the Land of Snow and now to the world at large.


We rejoice in their work and dedication to bring Buddhadharma to so many lifetime after lifetime. May their holy incarnations continue until the end of suffering sentient beings.


These great masters listed below include those who are currently practising, those who are still practising but due to external pressure have to give an appearance that they are not practising, and those who were practising in the past. The list is not exhaustive. There are many many more great practitioners out there.


Sarva Mangalam.

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.
