Lamrim Shugden

We are the holders of the tradition of Je Tsongkhapa. The principle defining characteristic of this tradition is the union of Sutra and Tantra. One of the most important things for us to do as Kadampas is to realize this union. I have worked extensively in the past on the union of the Lamrim and…

Why Dorje Shugden Practitioners are not Isolationist – Part 1

Some people criticize Dorje Shugden practitioners for being ‘isolationist’ or ‘sectarian’, but it’s important to understand why these perceptions have come about because it may appear that ‘Shugdenpas’ have deliberately decided to separate from Tibetan society or Tibetan Buddhism as taught by the Dalai Lama. However, as is explained, this is not the case. The…

Are the NKT’s ordination vows in keeping with the Vinaya?

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s decision to condense the 253 vows of a monk and the 364 vows of a nun into 10 vows does not go against the Vinaya. In fact, all the ordination vows could be further condensed into practising the higher training in moral discipline. An ordained person practising the three higher trainings is…

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.
