Followers of the right path with unbreakable guru devotion, the team behind, I would like to say Tashi Delek to you as my first greeting.

In this century, there are negative views, deceptive talk and insults towards Je Rinpoche’s lineage, our lineage lamas, protector and followers.

By clearing doubt through knowledge and fact, the truth surfaces. Through, the truth is presented to you and placed in your hands.

Letter from His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche

Since he was very young, the current incarnation of H.H. Trijang Rinpoche has shown many miraculous signs, which point to him to be not an ordinary person. His previous incarnation was the junior tutor to the 14th Dalai Lama for 30 years. Much of the current Dalai Lama’s knowledge, lineage and teachings were passed down to him by the previous incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche.

The current Trijang Rinpoche has studied under a few very qualified tutors mastering both Sutra and Tantra, and has developed an excellent knowledge of Buddhism. He is also heavily sought after for his extremely accurate divinations.

His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s lineage of incarnations is one of the oldest and longest and it extends back into time where he appeared as Buddha Shakyamuni’s charioteer, Chandra. Since then, he had a string of incredibly erudite and illustrious line of incarnations one after another. He is a lineage master of the highest caliber to thousands of monks, scholar Geshes, Tulkus and meditators in Sera, Drepung and Gaden. Although currently H.H. Trijang Rinpoche is young, he has shown great abilities again unsurprisingly in teaching, explanation, and conferment of Tantric initiations.

We at are extremely moved, overwhelmed and deeply touched in our hearts by His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche’s support, encouragement and endorsement of our website. We cannot express enough as we offer thousands of thanks to His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche for blessing us, our work and our aspirations to benefit many in preserving our lineage through this website.

His Holiness has brought us boundless joy and humility. We wish His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche an extremely long life and manifestation of all his holy wishes. Sarva Mangalam.

Letter from Gyelchen Dorje Shugden

The King of Dharma Protectors Dorje Shugden in full trance of Panglung Kuten oracle

Within the school of Tibetan Buddhism, there is a special tradition of oracles where dharma protectors may enter a body and take full control to speak, heal, give advice, pronounce prophecies and even remove obstacles. This special tradition has been safeguarded by a handful of lamas who are highly accomplished for the last 1,000 years in Tibet’s Buddhist history from Guru to disciple unbroken. These lamas are highly accomplished and have the skills to train a person up by retreats, initiations, meditations, cleanliness rituals and special diets in preparation to become an oracle. Once the oracle is fully trained up, then they are able take full trance of enlightened protectors such as Gyelchen Dorje Shugden. The oracles who are well trained by high lamas are very much sought after in Tibet and now in the outside world. Their prophecies and advice time and time again have proven to be beyond doubt with perfect accuracy. The Panglung Kuten who hails from Sera Monastery has been taking full trance of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, Jowo Chinkara, Shidak Genye for over 30 years. He was fully trained and authorized by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang the supreme Yongzin. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche personally trained up Panglung Kuten over a five-year period and oversaw every part of his training until completion. As a result, Panglung Kuten is one of the most qualified oracles within the Tibetan tradition alive today. He has been taking oracular trance for the last 30 years sought out by the highest lamas to the humblest of practitioners.

Our team flew to Taiwan and consulted Dorje Shugden via Panglung Kuten whether we should continue with In a spectacular trance session where both Dorje Shugden followed by Kache Marpo took full trance gave us a letter to continue’s work and said it will benefit our Tsongkapa’s lineage as well as sentient beings if continues. With full blessings and encouragement from Dorje Shugden Himself to continue the website, it gives us who have worked for the last 7 years great inspiration and strength to continue on. As long as the Lama and the Protector are pleased, we know we are doing our work well. Thank you humbly. We were extremely blessed to be in the living presence of Dorje Shugden and His minister Kache Marpo via the renowned Panlung Oracle. We therefore have committed to continue this website till the end. We seek to share the truth of the ban, the traditions, practices and lineage of Dorje Shugden continuously to the world.

With the blessings of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, H.E. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, Panglung Kuten, Kensur Rinpoche and now Dorje Shugden himself and many other great beings who showed their support, we are honored and grateful to say the least. May we continue to benefit and humbly ask for blessings, Sarva Mangalam. We share the letter with you from Gyelchen Dorje Shugden Himself:

Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche himself has highlighted one particular lama who he considered as equal to him in knowledge and attainments, and who held all the same lineages, transmissions and practices as Trijang Rinpoche. That person is none other than one of Trijang Rinpoche’s two closest heart disciples, Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche (the other being the illustrious H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche).

Zemey Rinpoche is the incarnation of a very renowned and high-ranking line of tulkus from Yangding, Kham in Tibet. His accomplishments drew the devotion of many disciples throughout Ganden Monastery and also the attention from the top echelons of the spiritual and political hierarchy of Tibet, including H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama. Zemey Rinpoche was one out of hundreds of tulkus and thousands of monks selected to accompany the Dalai Lama on his visit to China in the 1950s to meet with Mao Zedong and Zhou En Lai.

The current incarnation of Zemey Rinpoche is studying in Tibet. We are very blessed and honored that Zemey Rinpoche insisted on writing this letter by hand himself.

First of all, Tashi Delek to all of you.

The biggest contributor to modern day success is the advancement of Human Rights. Regardless it being in the political or religious, when the person in power’s motivation is to use his power to suppress those who have different views, they show their true faces. This tells the world that, the person in power does not abuse their power for their own agendas.

This precious website has all these while posted affidavits, reported facts, and help looked into the logic behind situations. This website has spoken up for those who believe in Dorje Shugden and the Gaden Whispered Lineage. On one aspect, the website ensures that the audience is not misled by receiving one sided information, any hidden information or gossips. On the other hand, it helps the other party think twice and have reservations before acting out inappropriately. This helps protect the Human Rights and spiritual freedom of practitioners. This contribution is very meritorious and commendable.

I recently received news that this website has expressed their wish to close down and I feel that it is a waste of so much years of effort. I would like to request the people behind this website to please reconsider your decision thoroughly as this is my greatest hope.

With respect,

  1. It is so incredibly amazing that at this volatile timing, all emiment Shugden Lamas, institutions and practitioners are coming together to support DS.COM. Need I say more to DS.COM?

  2. All these acknowledgement letters from sanghas, Rinpoches, high lamas, academician and cultural groups show they are not only readers or users of, but they are benefited and benefiting from this website.

    And… and the unsung heros behind it —- your effort and hard work and even to be there as our spoke person, reporter, history recorder of this battle for religious freedom are very very much appreciated, AND we Shugdenpas are all behind you!

  3. It is truly wonderful that more and more great beings , leaders and distinguished individuals, ladrangs and groups have come out in full support and appreciation of DS.Com for their unwavering report and presentation of the truth in the long drawn out Shugden controversy.

    Many, including Gangchen Ladrang, Kundeling Rinpoche and Panglung Kuten, have urged DS.Com to continue serving the millions who are suffering from the atrocites caused by the ban on Shugden practice, by keeping the website open. Panglung Kuten gently reminds DS.Com team no “never forget their initial motivation”. The letter of appreciation from HE Gangchen Rinpoche’s Ladrang states that “DS.Com is instrumental in preserving and spreading our Lineage to many. DS.Com represents the voices and hopes of our people. DS.Com has brought tremendous benefit to our cause in bringing the ban down through facts and knowledge”.

    In a stirring letter of appreciation, Kundeling Rinpoche, exhorts DS.Com to continue and not to abandon what they have begun so that the “pure Dharma may prevail and that all sentient beigs may benefit and practice fearlessly”.

  5. Dear Ds.Com,

    All sincere Shugdenpas rejoice to note that such great Lamas from our lineage supports the work that you have been doing. Obviously the site is extremely powerful with accurate information to support our faith on the uncommon protector of our lineage, Dorje Shugden.

    With the latest appreciation letters from these renowned Rinpoches, Lamas and the monastic order is full proof to you, the need of this website for all the repressed and discriminated Shugdenpas to be heard and to have enhanced trust that soon the BAN will be lifted.

    Please continue with your excellent work which benefit so many.

  6. Wow! With so many supporting letters from esteemed Lamas especially HH Ganden Tripa and HH Trijang Rinpoche, Ven Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and monasteries, I do hope that organiser of will revoke your decision of closing down the website as there is tremendous support. This website has been the hub and voice for all Dorje Shugden practitioners around the world.

    As stated in the appreciation letters above, this website is free from bias and reports based on factual findings. This is what journalism is all about. With so many supporting letters from the lamas and monasteries of the highest echelon, I have no doubts of the integrity and accuracy of articles written in this website.

    Truth will always prevail!

  7. WOW !! An appreciation and support letter from Trijang Rinpoche to Trijang Rinpoche has clearly stated that he wishes for this website to continue running and operating.
    In the world of Tibetan Buddhism, Trijang Rinpoche holds an authority on wisdom beyond many, based on all the works and legacy he left behind in all his previous lifetimes. He too was the junior tutor of the 14th Dalai Lama. He was the main disciple of Pabongkha Rinpoche, receiving the precious teachings of Dorje Shugden from him. This practice has been kept alive till this day despite the Ban and all the challenges taken by others to destroy it.
    Hence, Trijang Rinpoche’s wish to have continue operating must be fulfilled for the benefit of ALL !

  8. Such great news to have received an appreciation letter from Trijang Rinpoche!! And of course deserves it as the team has been working hard to provide information to ds practitioners all around the world. May the works continue together to bring the ban down!

  9. H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche does not easily give endorsement letters although many would like to have it. He will thoroughly check the situation before even considering the letter. Therefore to receive this powerful letter is a clear testament to the authenticity, relevance and outreach of this website. I have always quietly read and visited this website hundreds of times over the years and had no doubts of the authenticity of the information as I check with my Geshe teacher. But with this letter, it seals the deal for me completely. No one should have doubts about the sincerity, hardwork, resources and time that has been invested into this website nor it’s accuracy. If anyone has ever set up, maintained or worked with the website will understand what I am talking about. is not an ordinary or simple site but extremely sophisticated with many categories and voluminous information carefully researched and collected over many years. It is a cyber testament to our profound Lineage and omniscient Protector. A storehouse of knowledge and current events. is like a cyber Geshe!

    Congratulations and thankful for your existence ‘Geshe-Cyber-la’.

It is time for all Dorje Shugden practitioners and lamas to rally together to bring down the unjust ban. Together with the so many Shugdenpas, I rejoice tremendously.
    It is with great relief and great joy to read this very good news. Appreciation and support like this are inspiring and help to boost the morale of the hard working people behind the scene. Please continue with your good work to bring about lifting the unjust ban.

    And, it’s great to have His Eminence Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the spiritual guide of the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) and great lama Ven. Zawa Rinpoche’s acknowledgement letters too…

    Please continue with your great works in preserving the Je Tsongkhapa lineage, and specifically lifting the ban for the benefits of many.

    Thank you.

  15. These days, there’s so much information going around the internet, we hardly know what is the truth and what is not. To learn about one small truth, it takes a lot of research and investigation. At the end, we still need to come up with our own conclusion. You have no idea what a relief it is to know I have been reading on this website has been authenticated by all these great lamas from their own words and letters. Thank you for clearing many doubts.

  16. Afll I can say to you organizers and tireless workers with folded hands please continue to work and spread the Diamond news of the Great Protector of Gaden Nyen Gyu ,

    To receive so many letters from all great lamas blessing to the works of this DS.COM website is truly overwhelmed. They are many lamas and students around the world who sincerely practice dharma and want solidarity in the GOAL to remove the illegal ban. All Dorje Shugden practitioners around the world have to stand united to lift the ban together. Once the ban is down, we can go our merry ways.

    Thank you DS.COM for sharing such a good news.

  21. It’s amazing the number of appreciation and support letters that have received specially since the annoucement was made that the website might close down. I rejoice that the dorjeshugden communities have came together strongly to show their appreciation and support to Many have wondered who are the real people behind this website. One thing for sure with all these support letters coming in from the highest of Shugden lamas is that they know exactly who is behind and at the time honor their reasons to remain anonymous. Personally I like the fact that administrators are anonymous. It allows the facts or fictions presented in this website, however one wants to look at it to remain open to the public to judge. Not knowing who is behind this website allows the readers to be unbiased.

  22. Feel release when read through all these letters, because all the high lama do agree that do a good job, with this website the practitioner can asses to many information and update about the ban. Good job we will continue to support the website and do our best to lift the ban .

  23. This is really great. To have Gyelchen Dorje Shugden Himself writes the letter of acknowledgement…Yes, has done a good job all these years by revealing the truth about the BAN and is benefiting many many around the world. Letter from Protector Himself says it all. The only direction lays in front of us is moving forward till the ban is lifted!

  24. As we can see, there are so many wonderful and powerful collection of support/appreciation from the very highest beings on planet earth to Tushita,
    Kechara, Five-Peaked Mountain and Shambala, represent a synergy of Dorje Shugden Buddha and all his Lineage Masters coming forth on this
    platform to dispel misinformation and educate the world. Clearly, there is no doubt and anonymity in the state of affairs. Why there is even any need to know who is the admin of

  25. So many letters of appreciation pouring into requesting for admin to keep it open, from HH Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche, high lamas and friends around the globe, and now this letter from The King Himself!

    Thank you Admin for your reconfirmation to keep open.

  26. If you have letter from Shugden, then it meaning whatever you have in this website is correct and no doubt. congralutions.

  27. from the appreciation and support letters from the high lamas and monasteries have proven that you are already on the right track! These letters are certainly not issued due to the heated situation but with much due consideration. Therefore, I plea to you to continue your good works and showering your followers and readers with all the updated news. Through thick and thin , my vote certainly goes to you!

  36. 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.

  37. Please do not lose faith in His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He did so much for everyone and spread Tibetan Buddhism into western countries. He has always been looking out for fellow Tibetans and everyone one and maintaining world peace.

    We should not forget about what he did and pick on the things that he did wrong recently. It will be ungrateful for us to do that. On the other hand, we must also remember that His Holiness the Dalai Lama is Buddha Chenrezig. Buddha does not make mistakes.

    There must be something that we do not see here. His Holiness must have done those “wrong” doings to benefit everybody. He can see further into the future than us, and that is why he knows what is best for us even if it does not seems like it in the beginning. We have to have faith in His Holiness.

  38. Just went through this page.Glad to that dorji shugden dharma friends are keeping in touch.m Bhutanese from Bhutan.i read the history of Dorje sugden & there is nothing I can hate about,instead I love to follow shugden dharma.its very sad to know how Tibetans discriminate each other being in same religion.i wish this problem get solved in near coming future.i like Gelug,& I have full respect for u all🙏🏼.

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.
