First Dorje Shugden Temple in Taiwan (Hualian)

Building by His Eminence Serkong Tritul Rinpoche of Ganden Jangtze Monastery. As predicted, Dorje Shugden’s practice will grow bigger and mainstream in the world. It may ‘suffer’ suppression in the Tibetan Communities, but in Democratic free societies of the world, it will grow.

In the West, we have great Temples of Dorje Shugden by the Mahapandita Geshe Kelsang and in the east, now Serkong Tritul Rinpoche who is building, creating and preserving this holy lineage.

These great lamas are the pioneers of Dorje Shugden’s lineage to the non-Tibetan worlds through their skill, speech, perseverance, guru devotion, focus, knowledge, attainments to be able to do this kind of massive work. They can plan, raise massive sponsorship, teach, inspire, and preserve the lineage, so surely these great masters show the power of their inner attainments.

It brings inspiration to all of us. We rejoice also for their dedicated, hardworking, and focused students, who have committed from their hearts to their gurus to accomplish the results of their pure samaya (damtsig) to assist their masters in this great work.

Eh Ma Ho! May the precious noble victory banner of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s pure aspirations manifested by Dorje Shugden arise stronger and stronger to bring a dharma renaissance to this world in much need of it.

May all those who follow Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s pure prayers see the eastern sun blaze soon!

  1. Wonderful! Are there any undated photos of this magnificent Temple Dedicated to Dorje Shugden.t

  2. I can’t wait to see what the DS statue that they’ll invite to the temple will look like!! Hopefully I’ll have enough merits to visit this temple when it’s open :)

  3. The grand opening will be opened by Serkong Tritul Rinpoche at 25th Oct 2010.

  4. How powerful, dedicated and hardworking Serkong Tritul Rinpoche is. Look at the magnificent work he can do. He has had so much obstacles and hardship. The Tibetan Govt has been against him all the way, yet he still succeeded. So inspirational.


  5. This is not Dorje Shugden Temple.
    The hualian temple is build by Kadhampa Buddhist Association (Tibet).
    The Dorje Shugden is about “New Kadampa Buddhist Union” in England.

    Hualian temple builder, Kadhampa Buddhist Association is Tibetan Buddhism in Tibet by Atisha and continued by Dromtug Rinpoche in Tibet to Tsongkapa.

    New Kadampa Buddhist Union is not Kadhampa Buddhist Association.

  6. Attention:
    Before this, Tritul Rinpoche is a Gelugpa’s guru, so he did not give up Shugden.
    But Since 2008.01.01, His Holiness Tritul Rinpoche already recover the Atisha’s Kadhampa. Tritul Rinpoche said that when Atisha brought his teaching to tibet, when the beginning of Kadhampa on 1042, no Shugden at that time, so the kadhampa that he recover have no Dorje Shugden anymore since the day the recover Atisha’s Kadhampa.
    [Shugden is protector of Gelugpa, but no Kadhampa, because Atisha does not pratice Shugden, so Shugden no exist in Kadhampa, even today]

    Prove: (Youtube, the disclaimer of Tritul Rinpoche]

  7. This temple is huge and beautiful, with pleasant surroundings. I’d love to visit it one day and admire the architecture and decor. There seems to be some confusion about whether it is a Dorje Shugden temple or not. But it doesn’t matter. A temple is built to benefit people, for both ordained and lay people to obtain merits.

  8. It is true the Lamas that want to promote Dorje Shugden will have to get the support of the people from the non Tibetan world. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso centres have grown very large in the Western world with a powerful group of Western people and now H.E. Serkong Tritul Rinpoche of Ganden Jangtse is promoting Dorje Shugden in the East in Taiwan and Nepal with a large group of non Tibetan people. Both these two Lamas are from Ganden. As the saying goes, a Captain cannot fight the war alone. Soldiers are needed if you want to win the war. So Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and H.E. Serkong Tritul Rinpoche have devoted, hardworking students to help him. This will bring Dorje Shugden name to spread all over the world. Thus Dorje Shugden is to be the main Protector of Gelugpa Lineage.

  9. How’s wonderful a nice building has build to dedicate for Shugden practitioner, can imagine all the precious Buddhist teaching will spread from all these places. Besides H.E. Serkong Tritul Rinpoche & Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, i believe there are many Rinpoches also doing the same things to spread DS teaching in everywhere because it will brings tremendously benefits to people.

  10. vow…best ever temple I ever see, great, marvelous,love it a lot…those who still have contradiction between deity, protector, and keep talking about it, like a person shitting eat own shit and playing with it, frankly I really thanks the person who put this temple in complete.Well done, bless by Buddha and Bodhisattva always

  11. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! What more can I say?

    The temple is beautiful and huge. This shows that the hard work of His Eminence Serkong Tritul Rinpoche of Ganden Jangtze Monastery is bearing fruition everywhere and bringing the Dharma to benefit many.

    May His Eminence Serkong Tritul Rinpoche of Ganden Jangtze Monastery continue to bring Dharma to everywhere he visits and benefit all those that comes across his centres or teachings.

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.
