A Helping Hand For Nepal

More than three months have passed since the catastrophic earthquake hit Nepal, killing more than 9,000 people, and causing tremendous suffering and pain. While the international community galvanized help and support within hours of the first earthquake, the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), who claims to have lofty ideals of governing 6 million Tibetans, did next to nothing for their own in Nepal at such dire time.

The CTA offered words of sympathy and a paltry sum of 20 lakh (approx. USD 32,000), a clear indication of their capabilities as a ‘government’. At the same time, many other more sincere and caring Tibetan individuals and private groups took matters into their own hands to extend help and support to the victims of Nepal’s worst earthquake in history.

As one of the poorest countries in the world, it comes as no surprise that many Nepalese have lost their homes, which were poorly constructed without any proper architectural or engineering advice. With so many people suffering, the Lama Gangchen Help in Action, a charitable organization founded by H.E. Lama Gangchen Rinpoche, sprung into action, collecting relief funds and dispatching much-needed help.

By May 2015, Lama Gangchen Help in Action raised a total of 93,000 euros (approximately USD 101,000) as relief funds for Nepal

The financial aid collected was properly disbursed to provide food and clean water for the victims, as well as tents and zinc sheets to create temporary shelters. Many people from the rural areas of Nepal suffered greatly and it was difficult for relief supplies to be transported to these remote places due to poor road and travel conditions. However, Lama Gangchen Help in Action along with the monks and administrators of Serpom Monastery braved the difficult journey to ensure that relief supplies reached these victims.

These compassionate monks did not stop at just providing supplies, but understanding the importance of education for the younger generation of Nepalese, they also built temporary classrooms and even provided books and stationery so that the children could continue their studies.

We at DorjeShugden.com would like to thank H.E. Lama Gangchen Rinpoche for His ever compassionate foresight, actions and deeds that heal the world both physically and spiritually. We are glad to share this news with the world and we rejoice at the charitable works done by so many Dorje Shugden practitioners during this critical moment for Nepal.

May the sufferings of the people of Nepal come to an end, and may their country heal swiftly.

Many building structures suffered great damage

Getting to the remote areas of Nepal to send supplies was no easy task as most of the already bad infrastructure was made worst after the earthquake. Finding rocks to temporarily patch up the road for the lorry or jeep to drive pass occurs on almost every road these monks have to travel.

  1. Whilst I think it is amazing and heart-warming to see everyone helping the victims of the Nepali earthquake, it is such bad taste to turn the suffering of the Nepali people into some crazy dig at the CTA (Dalai Lama). This does not endear people to the Shugden cause or CTA.
    Stop mixing our precious Dharma with crazy politics, you are making us all (Shugden Buddhists) look like narrow-minded sycophants just like the CTA. CTA are doing badly on their own.

  2. This is compassion in action. Thank you.

  3. I am just happy to know that there are genuine people out there who are willing to help the victims of the Nepal earthquake. No interest in the politics !!

  4. Very nice to see such a compassionate act in this very crucial moment what we need is help so look what CTA has done no any efforts that show by them that they are religious people who talk about compassion and kindness.

  5. As Mahayanist buddhist, if we can help we should help. So good to see Lama Gangchen’s group and Serpom Monastery in action benefiting others. I recall at one time HH Penor Rinpoche from the Nyingma opened up his warehouse to the Serpom monks, when Serpom monks first struck out on their own. Now the Serpom monks are giving back to others… how wonderful the Sangha is.

  6. That was very compassionate of His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche and Serpom monastery, it’s such a shame that the CTA did nearly nothing to contribute towards the situation even though thousands of Tibetans live there. See, this is how the Tibetan leadership operates, cold hearted and selfish.

  7. What will the all the people around the world and in Tibet do now? Dalai Lama says he is happy that Tibet is a part of China and should remain a part of China. So many Tibetans self-immolated for Tibet to be independent and now Dalai Lama did a 360 degree turn and says he wants to go back to Tibet and China and Tibet should be a part of China. So unbelievable. So many are angry and disappointed.

    Tibetans ready to be part of China: Dalai Lama
    Organised by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), the event was a part of “Thank You India – 2018″ held by the Tibetan community across India to mark 60 years of its exile in the country.
    Indo-Asian News Service
    Tibetans are ready to be a part of China if guaranteed full rights to preserve their culture, the Dalai Lama said on Friday.
    “Tibetans are not asking for independence. We are okay with remaining with the People’s Republic of China, provided we have full rights to preserve our culture,” the 83-year-old spiritual leader said at “Thank You Karnataka” event here in the city.
    Organised by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), the event was a part of “Thank You India – 2018″ held by the Tibetan community across India to mark 60 years of its exile in the country.
    “Several of Chinese citizens practicing Buddhism are keen on Tibetan Buddhism as it is considered scientific,” the Nobel laureate said.
    Born in Taktser hamlet in northeastern Tibet, the Dalai Lama was recognized at the age of two as the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso. He fled to India from Tibet after a failed uprising against the Chinese rule in 1959.
    China annexed Tibet in 1950, forcing thousands of Tibetans, including monks, to flee the mountain country and settle in India as refugees.
    Since then, India has been home to over 100,000 Tibetans majorly settled in Karnataka, Himachal Pradesh among other states.


  8. Dear Dalai Lama,

    Since you started the cruel ban against the 350 year Dorje Shugden practice, how has it benefit your Tibetan society and Buddhism in the world? Things have become worse and most educated Tibetans can see this. They don’t speak out not because they don’t see your ban as wrong, but you instill fear in them and not respect. It is like fear of a dictator. I am sorry to say so. Everyone is divided. There is no harmony. Before your ban there was more harmony and unity.

    By enacting the ban, you split the monasteries, split so many families, split regions in Tibet apart, split your disciples from you, split your own gurus from you, split Tibetan Buddhism apart. You have created so much disharmony.

    It is not democratic what you have done to ban a religion within your community. You always talk of tolerance and acceptance and democracy and yet you do not accept and tolerate something different from your beliefs. When people practice Dorje Shugden you ostracize them, ban them from seeing you, ban them from using Tibetan facilities. You know you have done that. There are videos that capture your speech and prove this point. You even had people expelled from monasteries just because they practice Dorje Shugden. Some of the monks you expelled have been in the monastery for over 40 years. Many older monks shed tears because of this.

    Many young educated Tibetans lost confidence in you as they saw the damage the Dorje Shugden ban created and they lose hope. Many have become free thinkers. They reject what you have done. So many people in the west left Buddhism because of the confusion you created with this ban against Dorje Shugden which is immoral.

    You could of had millions of people who practice Dorje Shugden to support, love and follow you, but you scared them away. They are hurt and very disappointed. They loved you and respected you deeply before the ban. It has been 60 years and you have failed to get Tibet back. Your biggest failure is not getting Tibet back after 57 years in exile. Now you are begging China to allow you to return to Tibet to the disappointment of thousands of people who fought for a free Tibet believing in you. So many self-immolated for a free Tibet and now you want Tibet to be a part of China with no referendum from Tibetans. Just like a dictator, you decide on your own. It was your government and you that lost Tibet in the first place. Your policies and style of doing things do not benefit Tibet and Buddhism. You have been the sole ruler of Tibet your whole life and you still have not gotten our country of Tibet back for us. Our families and us are separated. Yet you create more pain by creating a ban to further divide people. Please have compassion.

    No other Buddhist leader has banned or condemned any religion except for you. It looks very bad. You are a Nobel laureate and this is not fitting of a laureate. You should unite people and not separate them by religious differences.

    You said Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi did not do right to the Rohingya people in Myanmar due to religious differences, but you are doing the same thing to the Shugden Buddhists within your own society. There is a parallel in this. You separate the Shugden Buddhists from the others in Tibetan society.

    You have lost so many people who would have loved and supported you. You have lost so much support around the world. The Shugden Buddhists who love you number in the millions. When you are fast losing support from governments and private people, it will not do you well to lose more.

    After you are passed away in the future, the rift you created between the Dorje Shugden and non-Dorje Shugden people will remain for a while and that will be your legacy. Disharmony. You will be remembered for this. Not as a hero but a disharmony creator.

    Dorje Shugden will spread and further grow, but you will be no more as you are a human. No one wishes you bad and in fact we hope you have a long and healthy life, but we have lost so much hope and have so much despair because of you. All the hundreds of Dorje Shugden lamas, tulkus and geshes are maturing and there are hundreds of Dorje Shugden monasteries in Tibet who will not give up Dorje Shugden. You have made a mistake. These hundreds of teachers and teachers to be will spread Dorje Shugden further in the future.

    The gurus that gave us Dorje Shugden as a spiritual practice and you have called these holy gurus wrong and they are mistaken in giving us Dorje Shugden. How can you insult our gurus whom we respect so much? If they can be wrong, then you can be wrong. Then all gurus can be wrong. So no one needs to listen to any guru? You have created this trend. It is not healthy. Your own gurus practiced Dorje Shugden their whole lives. Your own gurus were exemplary and highly learned.

    Dalai Lama you have created so much pain with this ban against so many people due to religion. You are ageing fast. Are you going to do anything about it or stay stubborn, hard and un-moving. You show a smile and preach peace and harmony wherever you go. But will you do the same to your own people? Please rectify the wrong you have done. Please before it is too late. You can create harmony again or you can pass away in the future with this legacy of peace. May you live long and think carefully and admit what was a mistake in having this unethical ban against Dorje Shugden religion.

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.
