Known the world over for his incredible work on peace and healing, H.E. Gangchen Rinpoche is also very famous for his stalwart, unwavering practice and promotion of Dorje Shugden’s precious practice. Unfortunately, he has been on the receiving end of much opposition and animosity in recent decades from people who are against the practice of Dorje Shugden. However, this has not stopped him in the slightest from continuing to make Dharma flourish in the world. In fact, the Lama Gangchen Peace Times organization and his student following only continues to increase globally, while Gangchen Rinpoche himself is strongly recognized by international bodies such as the United Nations and prominent figures around the world.

All of us at DorjeShugden.com make this virtual offering of a butterlamp to the incomparable master, His Eminence Gangchen Rinpoche, requesting him to remain for another 1,000 years to continue turning the wheel of Dharma and benefiting countless beings.
H.E. Gangchen Rinpoche comes from a long incarnation lineage of highly accomplished practitioners, originating from the Mahasiddha Darikapa, one of the 84 famous Mahasiddhas. In Gangchen Rinpoche’s previous lives he was also the abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery and for many incarnations, has had a tremendously close, affectionate and deep relationship with the line of Panchen Lamas, which continues to this day. In fact, Gangchen Rinpoche’s personal monastery in Tibet today is in Shigatse, very near the Panchen Lama’s own Tashi Lhunpo Monastery.
When Gangchen Rinpoche visited his personal monastery and Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in Shigatse, Tibet, tens of thousands of people came to receive blessings from him. It took three full days for Gangchen Rinpoche just to place his hands on the heads of every single blessing seeker.
Gangchen Rinpoche is well known for being a master of the Kalachakra tantra and for his closeness to the mystical land of Shambhala. Gangchen Rinpoche has taken rebirth, and resided and presided in Shambhala many times. In this current incarnation too, Gangchen Rinpoche is able to travel to Shambhala with his mind as easily as it is for us to book a ticket to any destination in the world. Gangchen Rinpoche is also famous for being very close to various enlightened female energies called dakinis who often speak to him, sing tantric songs of emptiness to him and also offer certain teachings.
Not only is Gangchen Rinpoche a master of the Yamantaka, Guhyasamaja, Heruka and Vajrayogini tantras, but he has also fully accomplished the Medicine Buddha practice so that he has become one with the Medicine Buddha. Gangchen Rinpoche creates blessing pills and blessed water that are world-famous for healing the most stubborn of problems, afflictions and diseases. Many people who have had cancer have been healed by Gangchen Rinpoche, combining his blessed methods with the use of traditional western medicine. In the Tibetan tradition, it is believed that to see, feel and visualize Gangchen Rinpoche or to be in his presence is equal to being in the presence of Medicine Buddha himself. Gangchen Rinpoche is recognized the world over for his incredible healing abilities and, from time to time, for the show of open, Mahasiddha, miraculous powers.
Gangchen Rinpoche has a huge and lovely residence in Nepal, which was built upon a land that was dry and without any water source. Upon arriving on the site, Gangchen Rinpoche urinated on a spot upon this land and within a few days, from that very source, spring water sprung forth. To this day, many are still enjoying clean, clear, unlimited water from the place that Gangchen Rinpoche had blessed.
Wherever he travels, people often see rainbows or double rainbows appearing over his residence – a very auspicious sign to announce the arrival of a great being and to show that the nature and land gods are very pleased that he is there.
In fact, Gangchen Rinpoche is very much known for his extensive work to heal the environment and bring positivity to the planet, encompassing all beings and nature. He has travelled all over the world crossing Asia, Indonesia, Eastern and Western Europe, South America and North America, planting peaceful naga wealth-increasing vases in the land, in the forests, under the ground and in the oceans. These are to appease a set of beings called nagas who could create potentially catastrophic dangers throughout our planet. On his own volition, Gangchen Rinpoche created these naga vases and planted them all around the world to appease these beings in order to bring about world peace. In one year, on his mission of peace, he travelled to 22 countries to do this.
The warmth, the kindness and the many years that H.E. Gangchen Rinpoche has contributed to the growth of Buddhadharma all over the world is attested by his hundreds of students who have been touched by his compassion and deep sense of responsibility to the environment and its denizens.
Today, Gangchen Rinpoche is the Spiritual Director of the international Lama Gangchen Peace Times organization which does wonderful work to promote peace through diverse means around the world, affecting millions of beings everywhere.
