Dear Tenzin Gyatso,
Dorje Shugden is alive and well in the United States of America and is not going away anytime soon.
You shouldn't judge other people's dharma practice; otherwise you risk breaking your own commitments to the guru.
Although I am a teacher in the New Kadampa Tradition, as a Duramgama Bodhisattva, I am a firm believer in Rime.
We are all on the same path to enlightenment; a single path with a plurality of aspects.
You should be encouraging people to practice more dharma, not less.
Your remarks are quite disparaging; a seeming result of your own attachment.
Question your own thoughts and examine your own mind.
I support you in your practice of Yamantaka and Kalarupa.
I only ask that you afford us Shugdenpa the same courtesy.
Thanks for your introduction.
I support all dharma practice, but Shugden spirit is not Dharma practice. Discouraging involvement with Shugden spirit does not damage my commitments to my teacher. I agree with my teacher when he warns us against this spirit.
I have disparaged no one. I have disparaged no Dharma. I have spoken against the Shugden spirit. I do so because I want the Dharma to not be tainted.
Dear Tenzin Gyatso
Dorje Shugden is Buddha Manjushri. How can Dharma be tainted by Dorje Shugden practice? Can Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche be wrong? Can Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche be wrong? Can all the Gelugpa lineage lamas be wrong about Dorje Shugden? Even His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama had propitiated Dorje Shugden before! It is HH Dalai Lama alone against his tutor Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and all the Gelugpa lineage masters. Whom do you think is right?
Wouldn’t HH Dalai Lama be afraid of very heavy negative karma by breaking samayas, creating schisms, disparaging Buddha Dorje Shugden, creating great amount of suffering for Shugden practitioners, causing disrepute to Dharma etc.? Of course HH Dalai Lama realized the consequences of these negative actions! HH Dalai Lama’s actions seem to contradict with the job functions of a Buddha i.e. to benefit all sentient beings! How could HH Dalai Lama have done all these wrongs? Surely he had done all these for a higher and greater purpose! Appearances are deceptive!
All sentient beings affected by the ban on Dorje Shugden must already have had the karma to experience the obstacles and sufferings caused by the ban. HH Dalai Lama is an emanation of Chenrezig, a Buddha. HH Dalai Lama has the clairvoyance to know that. HH Dalai Lama definitely has a higher motivation, a bigger picture of spreading Dorje Shugden practices far and wide through the ban.
Many contributors of this forum in this post and many other prior posts had proven you wrong time and again with strong, valid, logical facts and reasons against your stance against Dorje Shugden. It is time for you to accept defeat and offer victory to others. Is it not time for you to rest your case?
HH Dalai Lama cannot be wrong because he is an emanation of Buddha Chenrezig. HH Dalai Lama appears to be wrong. Can you afford to be wrong and continue to speak against Dorje Shugden? What happen if later when the ban is lifted, when the truth is revealed, you realise that you have been completely wrong about Dorje Shugden?
We respect your devotion to HH Dalai Lama. We respect your beliefs. Please respect others’ beliefs. Please respect Dorje Shugden practitioners. Aren’t we all in the same Gelugpa family?
