An incredible revelation has come to light about the H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama’s perilous escape from Tibet, and the truth about who really saved his life during those most dangerous times.

Some very courageous monks from both Gaden and Sera Monasteries have revealed many very interesting facts as below, which contradict what has been popularized. The truth has been covered up and denied by the Tibetan Government since the escape of the Dalai Lama and his people in 1959.

  • First, it was under H.H. Trijang Rinpoche’s advice that the Dalai Lama sought the counsel of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden through the most famous oracle in the land, Panglung Oracle.
  • By following Dorje Shugden’s instructions, the Dalai Lama escaped many terrible fates. For example, once, when the Chinese invaded the Norbulingka Palace (Dalai Lama’s summer home), they literally could not see the Dalai Lama and so he was not harmed. At that time, the Dalai Lama was carrying a Dorje Shugden thangka.
  • Through the Panglung Oracle, Dorje Shugden advised the Dalai Lama to leave Tibet immediately and advised him which route to take. Dorje Shugden assured that he would protect the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama followed this instruction and left immediately. The day after, the Dalai Lama’s palace, the Potala, was completely shelled and bombed. He and his entourage were protected throughout the escape and arrived in India safely.
  • The Gaden monks explained that the Dalai Lama had made an offering of THIS THANGKA PAINTING to his Guru Trijang Rinpoche. However, when he needed to escape Tibet, the Dalai Lama requested Trijang Rinpoche to borrow this thangka as protection. Knowing the tremendous benefit that the Dalai Lama would bring to the world through teachings and the Tibetan Buddhist lineage, Trijang Rinpoche immediately lent him the thangka.
  • The Dalai Lama carried this thangka on his back throughout his escape towards India.
  • All this points clearly to the fact that Dorje Shugden saved the Dalai Lama’s life and helped him escape unscathed from the dangers in Tibet.
  • This thangka still exists and is currently preserved by the monks of Trijang Ladrang in Gaden Monastery.
  • As the Dalai Lama escaped, he was accompanied by an entourage of 30 monks from Sera Monastery. To this day, these Sera monks remember that the Dalai Lama had consulted Dorje Shugden and been advised to leave Tibet when he did. They also remember that the Dalai Lama carried this particular Dorje Shugden thangka. See how deeply saddened this Sera monk is as he recalls that journey and reflects on the Dalai Lama’s current ban on Dorje Shugden

Now, the Dalai Lama has instituted a ban against Dorje Shugden, claiming that he is an evil spirit and will harm the Dalai Lama’s life. This is totally illogical! Why would Dorje Shugden help the Dalai Lama escape Tibet safely, and now be a threat to his life? Because of the ban, Dorje Shugden devotees have been attacked and families have been separated; monks are denied welfare and even expelled from their monasteries, which is unheard of in Buddhist history.

The thangka that His Holiness the Dalai Lama carried with him. Borrowed from His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche, this thangka assured the Dalai Lama’s safe escape from Tibet. Upon his safe arrival in India, this thangka was returned to Trijang Rinpoche by the Dalai Lama and until this very day, this thangka is enshrined in a very honoured, special place in Trijang Rinpoche’s personal house in Gaden. This is the actual thangka that the Dalai Lama carried in a container on his back throughout the whole 1959 exodus


Gen Jampa, Jangchub Norbu, Gen Dawa spoke passionately about the ban and how people had attempted to harm His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche. These monks are seniors and leaders in the monastery, and very devoted students of the late previous Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. These are the monks who revealed the information about the Dorje Shugden thangka and are now the guardians of this thangka in Trijang Ladrang

The Tibetan exiled Government in India makes defamatory reports to the police about Dorje Shugden practitioners. They spread rumours that these practitioners are Chinese spies and even try to stop Dorje Shugden practitioners from entering India!

Because the current young incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche continues to practice Dorje Shugden, there have been attacks on his life. Monks have revealed that masked men charged into Trijang Ladrang in Gaden Monastery carrying sticks and wanting to kill Trijang Rinpoche. Fortunately, many monks protected him. In 1995, because of the many threats on his life, the 15-year-old Trijang Rinpoche left India to America. The main reason he left the monastery was the many threats on his life due to this ban on Dorje Shugden.

There is now talk among monks that the Dalai Lama wants to be the spiritual leader of all schools of Buddhism in the world, like a pope of Buddhism. He is achieving this by breaking apart smaller schools of Buddhism – such as by instituting this ban and creating splits within lineages so as to weaken them. It is his hope that when these schools are weakened and have no strong leader, he will be able to step in as supreme head to all Buddhist sects everywhere. (This is not what we at endorse or agree with, but is what many monks are now led to think).

A close-up of His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche’s thangka that guided His Holiness the Dalai Lama to safety. It was carried by the Dalai Lama on his back until he reached safety


This is the 1959 exodus in which His Holiness the Dalai Lama carried with him the Dorje Shugden thangka that brought him safely into India

However, the revelation about the truth of this Dorje Shugden thangka now creates shockwaves in the Buddhist world. Underlying the ban, all its twisted “reasoning” and the misery it has created for Dorje Shugden devotees, THIS THANGKA reveals a whole different story. It proves that the Dalai Lama’s success today, and the success of all Tibetan Buddhist teachers, lineages and centers in the world, actually began first with the blessings and protection of Dorje Shugden as he led the Dalai Lama to safety. All the claims about Dorje Shugden being an evil, harmful spirit are completely unfounded and untrue.

In sharing this, it is our hope that we can show the world the truth about Dorje Shugden, and that the ban can be lifted to allow more religious freedom and peace, tolerance and understanding everywhere.












Zasep Tulku Rinpoche’s autobiography ‘A Tulku’s Journey from Tibet to Canada’, published in 2016, provides historical evidence and irrefutable proof that the Central Tibetan Administration is falsifying the facts when it comes to the practice of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

The autobiography of Zasep Tulku Rinpoche, a high lama of the Gelug lineage, provides accurate historical accounts of the Dorje Shugden practice. Click to enlarge.

Historical accounts show that prior to the politicization of the Dorje Shugden practice by the Central Tibetan Administration, this popular deity was relied upon by Dharma practitioners to help in their spiritual practice. Contrary to detractors’ claims about Dorje Shugden being ‘anti-Dharma’, this Dharma Protector practice was traditionally deemed to be suitable to be practiced alongside the Highest Yoga Tantras.

Zasep Rinpoche and his family were able to escape to safety prior to the events of 1959 through the clairvoyance and prophetic advice of Dorje Shugden through one of his oracles, Lama Gelong Chojor Gyamtso.

Oracles of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden were known for the accuracy of their prophecies due to Dorje Shugden being a fully enlightened deity with perfect clairvoyance. As stated clearly by Zasep Rinpoche in his autobiography ‘A Tulku’s Journey from Tibet to Canada’, Dorje Shugden warned the Tibetans of the impending loss of their homeland but his advice was mostly ignored by the Tibetan government.

The Tibetan government chose to consult the worldly state protector Nechung, and Nechung advised that the Dalai Lama should remain in Tibet where he would be safe. This was mistaken advice, as historical events would later show. Fortunately for Tibetan Buddhists all around the world, Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang had great faith in Dorje Shugden and consulted the protector for advice on the Dalai Lama’s safety. Dorje Shugden via the Panglung Oracle urgently adviced the Dalai Lama to leave for India immediately and gave the exact escape route. In saving the Dalai Lama from certain harm, Dorje Shugden prevented the destruction of Tibetan Buddhism and preserved the future of the Tibetan culture and people.

Zasep Rinpoche’s account of events concur with monastic records that it was indeed Dorje Shugden who saved the Dalai Lama instead of Nechung, contrary to the claims of the Tibetan leadership.

Dorje Shugden’s practice was first established within the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. The Sakya Throneholders regarded this Dharma Protector as an enlightened being and Dorje Shugden, together with Dorje Setrab and Tsiu Marpo formed the triune of Sakya Protectors known as Gyalpo Sum. Today, Sakya practitioners claim that Dorje Shugden was never widely practiced by their lineage but history proves otherwise. The undeniable fact is that before the CTA’s religious ban, Dorje Shugden was practiced first by the Sakyas and was later transmitted to the Gelug school where it was practiced by the majority of the Gelugpas.

Contrary to the CTA’s claims that Dorje Shugden’s practice is sectarian, Zasep Rinpoche’s autobiography shows how practitioners of all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism lived and practiced together in harmony, especially during the early years of exile in India. It was only when the CTA launched a virulent smear campaign against Dorje Shugden that the general public began to label Dorje Shugden a sectarian practice. In truth, Dorje Shugden’s practice is no more sectarian than the practices of other Dharma Protectors such as Mahakala Bernagchen, Achi Chokyi Drolma or Dorje Legpa, who protect the Karma Kagyu, Drikung Kagyu and Nyingma schools respectively.

By the 1980s, the Tibetan government had failed to fulfil multiple promises to return the Tibetan people to their homeland. A scapegoat was needed and they made one out of an ancient Buddhist practice, pinning the loss of Tibet and the failure of the Tibetan cause on Dorje Shugden. In his autobiography, Zasep Rinpoche is of the same opinion, stating that “…the [Dorje Shugden] controversy was orchestrated by the Tibetan Central Administration…”

The Tibetan leadership effectively sanctioned witch-hunts on Dorje Shugden practitioners and persecuted them using government instruments, declaring that simply by being a Shugden worshipper, one was effectively an enemy of the Tibetan nation.

As a result of the hatred against Dorje Shugden practitioners instigated by the Tibetan leadership, virtually all Shugden Buddhists had to fear for their lives, or at least for their safety.

Dorje Shugden’s beneficial practice has continued to thrive due to the courage and commitment of high lamas such as Zasep Tulku Rinpoche.

For centuries, Dorje Shugden has been practiced alongside the highest practices of the Gelug and Sakya lineages. Zasep Tulku Rinpoche’s list of transmission is an indication that the highest scholars viewed the Protector as an enlightened being compatible with their yidam practices.

  1. Being a practitioner of Dorje Shugden, I had always been patient with the BAN hoping that the agenda behind it is for more people to be curious and practise in private. However, with this new revelation which is to break up large Buddhist institutions to have control over them, makes the BAN appalling.

    What happened to the Buddhist philosophy of benefitting others and having compassion for others to remove sufferings? What happened to being selfless?

    Gratitude for all things is the seed for compassion, kindness and love, and if Dorje Shugden saved the Dalai Lama, and he imposes the BAN, then my question is where does Dalai Lama operate from? With the new revelation of the agenda to be Pope of Buddhism, it is now clear that we in samsaric are deprived of the blessings and protection of Dorje Shugden for a better rebirth.

    With greater resolve, all practitioners must work hard for the BAN to be lifted and time is not on our side. Let us work hard NOW!

    Personally, I love the thangka, a perfect picture of the KING! He is just so beautiful.

  2. Wow! What a revelation. What a holy and beautiful thangka! This revelation shows that the protector Dorje Shugden has the Dalai Lama, the Dharma and all beings in his mind. Through the escape of HHDL, the Tibetan Buddhism has spread all over the world to benefit many.
    I personally do not believe that HHDL wants to be the pope of Tibetan Buddhism and he is already by far the most revered leader in Buddhism; not just Tibetan Buddhism. But that is what the actions of the CTA lead others to believe in.
    There must be a higher reason that HHDL is “lying”. I wish I know why.
    Please lift the ban. Many are suffering. My friends are suffering. More importantly, if the ban is lifted then many more will be able to practice and benefit.

  3. I’ve always known that the Dalai Lama had the protection of Dorje Shugden when escaping from Tibet but I didn’t know H.H. was carrying a thangka of the Protector. It just shows that at that time, H.H. had full faith in the power of Dorje Shugden to keep him and his entourage safe during the journey.

    In spite of the many issues surrounding the ban, I still believe that H.H. has never lost this faith in Dorje Shugden and that there must be a “higher reason” for his actions. H.H. is a powerful high lama, He is Chenrezig. I have faith in the Buddha. The Buddha’s actions are always pure. We don’t see them as pure because of our delusions. I pray that the ban will end soon as well as the suffering caused by it.

  4. If Dorje Shudgen is an evil spirit,why would he save HHDL’s life?The Sera monks are living testimony to reveal the truth about Dorje Shugden.They are clearly affected by the ban and so are all Dorje Shugden practitioners who had benefitted tremendously.
    The thangka that ‘paints a thousand words’,a sight to behold!THE TANGKA THAT SAVED HHDL.
    Please end the sufferings and lift the ban,so that many can practise openly without fear.

  5. Truth shall prevail and always triumph over evil.What surfaces here comes as no surprise.There will be more I am sure.The whole denial of the King’s rightful position as the most powerful and beneficial protector of Lama Tsongkapa’s doctrine in particular and for Buddhist practitioners in general is without basis historically , factually and through valid reasoning.
    Personally I feel that the really dark side of the ban was the manner in which it was implemented whereby so much confusion and hardship was caused, and so many lies were spread. Granted, the decree may have a ‘ larger purpose’ which ordinary folks like us cannot comprehend.

    Buddhism’s universal appeal to the world is due to its message of tolerance, exercise of free will, love and compassion to create a world we can all live in peace and harmony.
    The ban is totally in conflict with the above values and against all the wisdom passed down by holy lineage masters.
    We must create the cause for the quick resolution of this issue by being strong, having perseverance, keeping samaya and going all the way for dharma and praying deep within our hearts constantly for the long life of our Guru and welfare of all. This I believe is the best way under the prevailing circumstances.

  6. Wow! It’s so beautiful! More known and solid facts are out now… Thank you for such a lovely picture of the thangka.
    It’s sad that those Holy Sangha have to endure so much pain and sufferings in order to practice DS. It’s also heartbreaking to know that HH banned us from practicing DS as DS was the one who saved him during the invasion! WHY? All the cover ups and lies about DS are so illogical! Why should an evil spirit help HH flee Tibet knowing that HH will ban people from practicing him? We know that even evil spirit have clairvoyance…
    Please lift the ban so that we can all practice DS openly with no one being hurt or swearing in! I can’t wait for the ban to be lifted so that we can spread the practice to MORE people. With this website, may more people know the truth based on facts and not lies. Please lift the ban so that the Sangha and us will not have to endure so much pain and humiliation for practicing The KING! May all our collective merits be dedicated to lifting the ban. And the TRUTH be known…

  7. On one hand, we know that HH Dalai Lama “created” this controversial to promote Dorje Shugden to the world, but on the other hand, from what the monks said, they are suffering so much because of the ban. They are not allowed to go to the hospitals, shops, etc.

    As practitioners of Dorje Shugden, we must realize that we are actually practicing at the expense of the monk’s suffering. As such, if we are real practitioners, we must spread the teaching of Dorje Shugden tireless to everyone and create the cause to lift the ban AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

  8. It is a great wonder how H.H. The Dalai Lama escaped to India to safety during the red guard attack with Dorje Shugden thangka on his back and on Dorje Shugden recommended escape route. H.H. The Dalai Lama’s life had relied on Dorje Shugden’s divine intelligence in such a dangerous escape without any of the modern science and aids that the US Central Intelligence has privy to. If the US CIA were to be asked to use DS’s intelligence in that situation, they will surely pee in their pants. It proved here that H.H. The Dalai Lama has complete faith and trust in Dorje shugden who is no less than the Buddha Manjushri.

    Hence whatever the motive for banning DS, people around the world will soon discover the truth of Dorje Shugden. People cannot comprehend the lies about Dorje Shugden and the whole episode is really a mockery of H.H.The Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government. Would not it be better if the ban be lifted IMMEDIATELY?

  9. The escape of HH was by the advice of Lord Shugden.
    Really doesn’t make sense if practicing this great protector will harm HH life. Contradicting!

    So wonderful to know the truth of the escape and with such a beautiful fact that HH was carrying the Lord Shugden thangka all the time through out the journey. This shows that HH trusted and has full faith on Lord Shugden. NO DEBATE ON THIS POINT!

    The compassion and with great wisdom Lord Shugden can never be wrong else how can HH escape?

    If you have strong faith to this great protector you will be protected not just this life but many. Look at those monks that devoted to Lord Shugen, they are many and growing not all over the world. Don’t give up and the ban will eventually lifted because the TRUTH will never lose!

  10. By reading the true story above, look at how much faith HH Dalai Lama towards Dorje Shugden. HH put his life into DS hands. He followed DS instructions all the way. HH carried DS Thangkha as it was DS himself that He believe that will protect him from harm of the chinese army.

    I believe that all these happened for a bigger purpose. All practitioners even HH knew that DS could bring tremendously benefits to all being such as to fulfill our spiritual even samsaric wishes in order for us to practice dharma. I believe all of us will not loose faith or give up. The ban will be soon lifted. When this day come many many more people will be benefited by practicing DS. Countless beings will be blessed. We all pray for that day to come.

  11. - We have the Thangka that HH carried with him during his escape from Tibet
    - We have monks who accompanied HH at that time, now still alive who can vouch for the presence of the Thangka that HH carried

    The above are solid facts that DS certainly was around to help HH then, but why the ban of this practice? Surely DS did not harm HH then, nor is now out to harm Him. DS practice cannot be evil.

    We must band together to get the ban lifted so that DS can benefit many more to practice openly.

  12. Thank you for the new information and facts. This info proves that Dorje Shugden saved HHDL and HHDL believed in him when he is in the time of need. We could not understand why HHDL ban DS practice but there must be a higher motive to what is known now. Hope more info will surface more and more and the ban would be lifted soon.

    The thanka is very beautiful and we have such great fortune to view a piece of history.

    We should spread this info to more people so that more people will understand and assist in the lifting of the bann

  13. Thanks for the great sharing. It’s another strong proof to show that Dorje Shugden had saved HHDL’s life. Interesting. Then why HHDL so enthusiastically promotes the ban on Dorje Shugden practice?

    Is Dorje Shugden really an evil spirit? If he is, what is his hidden agenda? To kill HHDL? To destroy buddhism?

    If DS wants to harm HHDL’s life, then why He saved HHDL in 1959? Wouldn’t it be much easier for DS to kill HHDL during that period of time? Why wait until HHDL becomes the icon of Buddhism all over the world?

    If DS wants to destroy buddhism, then why he manifested as a Dharma protector that protects Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage and teachings? Doesn’t He know that this will help promote Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings to many people? Does it mean that Lama Tsongkhapa an evil too?

    If DS is an evil spirit, then people who practice it must be evil too. Then Great Lamas like Pabongkha Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and a lot more renowned masters must have been wrong and what they promote must be evil teachings and evil practices. They must have collected a lot of negative karma and gone to hell already. Why they still reincarnated and still spreading the Dharma? What an evil can get from spreading Dharma?

    Furthermore, their students and disciple from all over the world for many decades must have learned many evil teachings from all these masters. Let’s see what they have done?

    According to one of the New Kadampa (who practices DS) website, “At the present time the NKT-IKBU has about 700 ordained people around the world.” So this evil practice actually promotes monkhood, promotes renunciation, promote world peace etc. What’s the point? Are they trying to destroy buddhism by creating more monks? Why makes things so difficult and complicated?

    The more I think about it, the more illogic the ban seems to me. May be there is a bigger plan that an ordinary human being like me will not understand. Who knows?

  14. That is a very sacred Thangka and a proved of how Dorje Shugden manifest as a Buddha who owns a very compassionate heart. This Thangka is also a beautiful history between the 14th Dalai Lama, Trijang Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden.
    As the world knows that Trijang was a tutor of the 14th Dalai Lama, and Trijang is known by the world that he is also the practitioner of Dorje Shugden. How could Dalai Lama’s tutor is practicing an evil spirit? How could Dalai Lama’s says that his Guru is an evil, while Guru Devotion is so important in Vajrayana Buddhism. The Thangka itself shows the world: IF Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit, why would they keep it inside the monastery? Why would Dalai Lama kept this Thangka or Dorje Shugden, the so called evil spirit along with him during His most critical time? Why don’t Dalai Lama ban Trijang Rinpoche, and even the whole Gelug School ban Pabongka Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche together with Dorje Shugden? Why believing in the Great Master but not the Buddha(Dorje Shugden) Himself?

    Aren’t the great masters have the wisdom to differentiate between Buddha and evil spirit? Aren’t the great masters have the ability to tame the evil spirit? Sure they have these abilities! Pabongka Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche both is High Beings, it is ridiculous to say that this 2 Buddhas are practicing an evil spirit!

    I hope the ban could be lifted as soon as possible, cause the are too much sufferings caused by this ban. The world should be at peace, and the core value of Buddhism is peace.
    Om pani pedme hum.

  15. Cannot deny for this precious evidence explore in the air. It is good to show all the world that DS really done something very benefit for all over the world. The fact that proved Dalai Lama had denied DS was the protector who helped him escaped attack from China community, will make many people feel confusion must be stop.

    Don’t make people who sincerely in Dharma suffer again. The ban must stop fast!!! Because many prove had exist to show the world what was DS done for us…

  16. In deed it is a very beautiful and powerful thangka of DS. For the fact that HH asked his Guru Trijang Rinpoche to lent it to him in order for him to escape, this is very interesting. And yet after so many years why only recently there is a ban. And why is DS helping HH to escape? It must have a BIGGER reason for DS to do so which a layperson like me wouldn’t understand. But certainly not evil.

    I wish the ban will soon be lifted and it’ll bring so much benefit to the world. We most all work together in order to achieve that.

  17. 其实我是从朋友口中认识到这位伟大的护法!

    从此开始学习。很多人都说他不好, 是邪佞,让达赖喇嘛减寿!从这些point里,我看不出任何放弃的理由!多杰雄登还保护着达赖喇嘛!



  18. DS is a very powerful enlightenment protector.

  19. WOW! What a beautiful thangka! In so many ways. More and more signs are showing up that Dorje Shugden does no harm to HH Dalai Lama and practising DS will not shorten His Holiness’ life. May the ban be lifted very soon and people be able to practice openly. May there be no more divide between ds and non-ds practitioners.

  20. Dorje Shugden is truly compassion and powerful, helping the great 14th to escape and arrives safely in India.

    Over the years we have been hearing how the great 14th criticized and instilled ban on this compassionate powerful Dorje Shugden, However we never hear any stories that DS or his practitioner harm the great 14th.

    One very interesting point to think, the great 14th has been asking the monks to swear out of DS, why dont the great 14th swear himself at same time swear that he never ever received any benefits from DS while he was escape from Tibet?

  21. This is a very important revealation indeed. With these old monks’ sharings, we would have stronger faith in the DS practice. This is a proof that we are definitely NOT on the WRONG side… Whatever is the real reason behind this ban, the sacrifices of these monks should motivate all of us to work harder to spread DS practice to be bigger and stronger around the world, then, this ban would not pose any threat anymore… when many people is praticing it, who bother with the ban anyway?

  22. does this revealation really make sense, on one hand you say that trijang rinpoche knowing about the benefits that his holiness the dalai lama would bring to world and dharma he gave the thangka, on the other hand you are saying his holiness is doing harm to the dharma. either your lama trijang is not an enlightened being for having trained and believed in h h the dalai lama or you people are not being true about everything or are being lied about everything.

  23. hallo. I see your website and see this writing. Thank you to share this one. I always talking with my monks friends. All the monasteries and the monks they know Dorje Shugden and Sera monks helping the Dalai Lama when he is leaving Tibet. Why the Dalai Lama doesn’t say this? Why the Dalai Lama lying and say palden lhamo helping him? It is hurting many people because they know the truth. I am Tibetan and all my friends Tibetan . Many people is confused now and very sad why Dalai Lama telling like this. I want say thank you to bring us the truth and show us truth articles.

  24. I don’t understand if Dorjee shugden is so powerful why he din’t protect Tibet.

  25. I don’t understand if Dorjee shugden is so powerful why he din’t protect Tibet.

  26. If Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit and can harm HHDL, why?? Did Dorje Shugden save HHDL when HHDL escaped from Tibet.

    And why?? There are many high lamas are still relying on Dorje Shugden and promoting Dorje Shugden to their students.


  27. Dear Tenpa,

    This article does indeed make sense as it clarifies an important aspect of history. Trijang Rinpoche is an enlightened being proven by much history, most importantly his recognized reincarnation is back.

    I do not believe that there is any attempt here to provide any untrue information. Trijang Rinpoche has predicted this current situation and has said never to lose faith in Dalai Lama.

    Therefore there is much deeper truth on this Ban. It is not as it seems. I choose to see this as a special collaboration to keep the practice alive.

  28. I was under the impression that it was the Nechung oracle who was consulted on the time and date to leave Tibet. It is of course possible that this happened through Shugden but that it was Nechung who advised has been the offical story well before any dispute over Shugden broke out in exile and before anyone would have cause to change the story. This information relies on the testimony of a few monks who have been banned from a monastery and should therefore be investigated much more thoroughly before any conclusion is drawn.
    Also the thanka that has always been traditionally carried everywhere by the Dalai Lamas throughout their history is that of Palden Lhamo – perhaps he was carrying two thankas but again where is the evidence. We must all learn to think for ourselves and fully investigate before drawing any dramatic conclusions.

  29. “does this revealation really make sense, on one hand you say that trijang rinpoche knowing about the benefits that his holiness the dalai lama would bring to world and dharma he gave the thangka, on the other hand you are saying his holiness is doing harm to the dharma. either your lama trijang is not an enlightened being for having trained and believed in h h the dalai lama or you people are not being true about everything or are being lied about everything.”
    Who cares anymore about this dalia lama but a group of misguided self serving protagonist . Common sense is a foundation of Buddhism~ As this man serves himself in his desperate attempt to rewrite history that he could never have committed the murder of a Wisdom Buddha.

  30. Lobsang Yeshe is right to question the validity of the Dalai Lama’s prohibition of the Dorje Shugden practise especially when it was the protector who helped him escape from Tibet. Nevertheless, the Dalai Lama has always attributed his escape to Palden Lhamo. The question is why? Assuming that Shugden was instrumental to the Dalai Lama’s escape, why would he curb the growth of this beneficial practice? None of the reasons for and against the Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden make any sense. Does the ban make Shugden’s practice more potent, relevant and easily accepted by the public at large? As much as the Dalai Lama is a leader in exile, Dorje Shugden is a protector in exile. Therefore, why did the Dalai Lama personally ostracize a Buddhist protector putting him in the same position as he is in?

    Can we say that the Dalai Lama has cut off a limb from his body, threw it into the ground so that it would sprout and grow a new tree bearing new fruits attracting new admirers and followers?

    Something to think about, isn’t it?

  31. The Dalai Lama needs to acknowledge who really saved his life and set a good example for the rest of his community and people. Gratitude is the basis of all attainments and unfortunately His Holiness has forgotten how to show gratitude to the teachers who gave him his knowledge, and the deity who gave him his life.

  32. Thank you for revealing the truth.

    Over the 20 years, there are too much sufferings for the Tibetan monks and also its people. Discrimination, segregration and violence have created too much bad karma and they keep multiplying. I hope, HH Dalai Lama can overturn the situation and lift the ban immediately. No matter what caused the HH Dalai Lama to raise the ban, I do not think it is fair to be paid off by the peoples’ tears and blood.

  33. The accusation against Dorje Shugden being evil and harmful to Tibetan cause are unfounded and baseless. They are but propoganda by CTA/Tibetan leaderships to cover up their mistakes of advancing the Tibetan cause and providing for their people. It is the most shameful segregation and antipathy towards the own people; literally toying the reputation of Dorje Shugden, an enlightened Dharmapala and masking it all under the good name of Dalai Lama. The shameful actions by the CTA have to be stopped before they cause further damage and suffering to Tibetans at large and bringing Buddhism to degeneration.

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.
