UNCOVERED TRUTH: Evidence of how Dorje Shugden was actually behind the Dalai Lama’s escape out of Tibet to India in 1959

Recently DORJESHUGDEN.COM had the privilege to view some very important documents that have never been revealed before. They are published here for the first time for the world to see the clear evidence of how Dorje Shugden, contrary to purported stories, has always looked after His Holiness the 14th the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people’s welfare, and in particular in protecting the Dalai Lama, his gurus and their entourage during their escape from Tibet to India in 1959. The documents in Tibetan were handwritten by Changtso(2) Lobsang Yeshe himself while those in Chinese and English were translations, recounting the incidents that led to the Dalai Lama’s escape from Tibet to India in 1959.

The official statements by the CTA(4) and the Office of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama have always asserted that the State Oracle Nechung was the one who told the Dalai Lama to escape to India, and the one who pointed out the safe escape route. On the Dalai Lama’s official website for example, it is mentioned that:

On 17 March 1959 during a consultation with the Nechung Oracle, His Holiness was given an explicit instruction to leave the country. The Oracle’s decision was further confirmed when a divinity performed by His Holiness produced the same answer, even though the odds against making a successful break seemed terrifyingly high.

However, what Changtso Lobsang Yeshe revealed was a completely different story…

Changtso Lobsang Yeshe was a member of Pomra Khangtsen(23) in Sera Mey(28) Monastery. He was the main attendant and biological brother of Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche(14), who was the Abbot of Sera Mey Monastery at that time. Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche was appointed by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche(30), the junior tutor of the 14th Dalai Lama as the main coordinator of the team sent to consult Protector Dorje Shugden.

Changtso Lobsang Yeshe was the principal intermediary between Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden (via the 6th Panglung(22) Oracle) during this crucial period at a time when the Chinese closely observed Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche. Changtso Lobsang Yeshe was also the contact point to receive all the initial instructions regarding the Dalai Lama’s escape from Tibet.

Changtso Lobsang Yeshe was in a private audience with the Protector Dorje Shugden on 10th March 1959 via the 6th Panglung Oracle as a representative of Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche. During that period, a sinister Chinese plot to have the Dalai Lama and many other religious leaders arrested and harmed was uncovered. And it was at this crucial moment that a specific advice for the Dalai Lama to leave Tibet without delay was given by Dorje Shugden.

Of all the protectors in the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon, Dorje Shugden was the one who uncovered the danger to the Dalai Lama’s life and Dorje Shugden had also effectively prescribed the means by which the Dalai Lama could be protected as he escaped.

During that audience, Dorje Shugden offered a Pudri (a bracelet-like article with three eyes worn by the Panglung Oracles) to ensure the safe journey of the Dalai Lama and his entourage. This holy item was given to Changtso Lobsang Yeshe for Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche. Dorje Shugden also gave Changtso Lobsang Yeshe a handful of blessed yellow rice that was “to be burnt in times of trouble” during the escape.

Changtso Lobsang Yeshe was also a witness to another important audience between Dorje Shugden and Ratoe Chowar Rinpoche, who was requested by Kyabje(18) Trijang Rinpoche (the Dalai Lama’s tutor) to come to seek advice from the Oracle regarding the same matter.  During this audience, a suitable route of escape was divined by Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden via the Oracle shot three arrows to the Southern direction indicating the direction that the Dalai Lama and his entourage should take. In addition, Dorje Shugden gave a ceremonial sword to Ratoe Chowar Rinpoche, and told Rinpoche that he would ensure a safe journey for the Dalai Lama if the sword was waved by a person named Dorjee in the air three times in the direction of the Dalai Lama’s escape route and to lead the Dalai Lama into India whilst holding up the sword.

In fact, it was actually the Dalai Lama himself that requested Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche to seek Dorje Shugden’s advice. As Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche was closely watched by the Chinese because he was the tutor of the Dalai Lama, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche instead requested Ratoe Chowar Rinpoche to seek audience with Dorje Shugden via the Panglung Oracle.

The following is the exact excerpt from Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s autobiography titled “The Illusory Play” that clearly recounted the actual incident:

Following the intentions and orders of the Dalai Lama, I secretly ordered Rate Chubar (Rato Chowar) Rinpoche to go to Panglung Retreat and to ask Gyalchen Dorje Shugden for his instructions.

The Dharmapala said, ‘You must go immediately! If you go by way of the southwestern direction, no harm will come to the Dalai Lama or any of his entourage; I guarantee it! You must go raising this sword in my name at the head of the Dalai Lama’s column.’ Thus, he advised using the path leading to the southwest through Ramagang(25) and then performed the shooting arrow and sword dances.

Following this very advice, on the night of the eighth day of the second month at nine o’clock, preceded by members of his family such as his mother, the Gyälyum Chenmo, the Dalai Lama and a small entourage then left.

On March 31st, 1959, the spiritual leader of Tibet, the Dalai Lama, and his entourage, crossed the border into India safely after an epic 15-day journey on foot from Lhasa, over the Himalayan mountains, protected by Dorje Shugden all the way. Thus began a new chapter with the emergence of Tibetan Buddhism in the world at large.

In conclusion, this is in sharp contrast to the assertion by the CTA(4) and the Office of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama that Nechung was the one who assisted and brought the Dalai Lama out of Tibet safely in 1959. This article intends to reveal a completely different story by bringing to light what Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, many high reincarnated lamas, Geshes(8), ordinary monks and senior Khampa warriors of the Chushi Gangdruk(3) believe as the truth, a truth that is backed up finally by an authentic affidavit of a monk who was the key person that received and witnessed all the instructions regarding the Dalai Lama’s escape from Tibet in 1959.

Dorje Shugden was behind the planning, instructions and guidance during the epic escape from Tibet. Buddhism of Tibet and the survival of the Great Masters are due to the omniscience and power of this great enlightened Protector Dorje Shugden.

Now, instead of recognising and worshipping Dorje Shugden, he is painted to be a harmful spirit, contrary to the great deeds he has performed in the past to preserve Buddhism. The Buddhism of Tibet flourishing globally today is due in large part to Dorje Shugden.

May the truth behind the escape be known now.

Attached are the private documents.

2) The Flight of H.H. the Dalai Lama, His teachers, Family and Followers from Tibet Under the Guidance of Dharma Protector Panglung Gyalchen Dorje Shugden (1959)




1. The 79th Sera Mey Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche

At the height of Sera Mey Monastery, one of the Great Three Gelugpa university monasteries of Tibet founded approximately 600 years ago, Kensur Ngawang Dakpa was appointed as the abbot due to his academic accomplishment, tenacity in Dharma learning, teaching and practice. The leader of over 8,000 monks, Kensur Rinpoche was one of the most erudite masters of his time and was chosen to be one of the panel examiners for the Dalai Lama’s debate examination to obtain a Geshe degree during the famed Monlam Chenmo (Great Prayer Festival) celebration. This examination was crucial in determining the 14th Dalai Lama’s Geshe degree.

2. Changtso Lobsang Yeshe, the main attendant of Kensur Ngawang Drakpa Rinpoche

Changtso Lobsang Yeshe was the main attendant and biological brother to Kensur Ngawang Drakpa. He was the key person sent by Kensur Rinpoche himself to speak to the Protector Dorje Shugden through the Panglung Oracle, requesting advice from the Protector on the Dalai Lama’s safety.

As a close attendant to Kensur Rinpoche, Lobsang Yeshe represented Kensur Rinpoche to avoid suspicion of the Chinese army during those critical times. Watch this video of Changtso Lobsang Yeshe telling you the story himself:

3. Ratoe Chowar Rinpoche

Ratoe Chowar Rinpoche was sent by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche under the order of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama to request the advice for the Dalai Lama’s escape out of Tibet. Ratoe Rinpoche consulted the Protector Dorje Shugden via the Panglung Oracle and received the instructions for the escape as well as a blessed ceremonial sword to protect the Dalai Lama’s party in their dangerous journey across the Himalaya to India.

4. The 6th Panglung Kuten, Oracle to the Protector Dorje Shugden

The Panglung Kuten or Panglung Oracle comes from a long history of generations of oracles who take trance of the supreme Protector Dorje Shugden. Blessed, spiritually sanctioned and trained by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche himself, the Panglung Oracles are well known for their accuracy in oracular pronouncements of the Protector.

A hermitage, Panglung Ritue located near Sera Mey Monastery was awarded by the Tibetan Government of Lhasa and named after the 1st Panglung Rinpoche as he was instrumental in subsiding a war between Tibet and Sengba (a small country in Mongolia) through rituals and prayers. Since then, the hermitage has been a sanctuary preserving the Buddha’s teachings and especially Dorje Shugden’s tradition and presence in Tibet as the oracles took trance here to answer questions from many High Lamas and lay people for centuries.

For many lifetimes now, the Panglung Oracle and incarnations of Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche hold very strong connections with each other as they have been spiritually connected to benefit sentient beings and spreading the Dharma.




  • In 1956, on the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni’s birthday, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, his 2 tutors (Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche), and retinue travels to India on an official state visit and pilgrimage.
  • While His Holiness the Dalai Lama is in India, Andruk Gompo Tashi (leader of the Chushi Gangdruk) consults Dorje Shugden for advice.
  • Dorje Shugden via the Panglung Oracle advises for Tibet to engage in a battle with China, whilst the Dalai Lama is away. By doing so, it will resolve Tibet’s situation.
  • Andruk Gompo Tashi meets with the representatives from 3 Tibetan provinces. They unanimously agree to attack, and to make the necessary preparations.
  • The first attack with the Chinese is scheduled to be on the 15th day of the 12th month (according to the Tibetan calendar) at Dromo-Shar-Sima, Tibet.
  • One week prior to the planned attack, Andruk Gompo Tashi sends a messenger to seek audience with Changtso Lobsang Yeshe (main attendant to Khenpo Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche).
  • Lobsang Yeshe learns about the scheduled attack. There is also a request from Andruk Gompo Tashi for monks from Sera Mey monastery to be part of the Chushi Gangdruk. Changtso Lobsang Yeshe agrees.
  • The plan entailed for Sera monks to meet with other Tibetan laymen at the Potala Palace on the 15th day of the 12th month. Arms would then be provided, and the battle will ensue.
  • On the 15th day of the 12th month, the attack does not occur.
  • On the 23rd day of the 12th month, Andruk Gompo Tashi informs Changtso Lobsang Yeshe that he himself does not know why the attack has not yet taken place. A new date for the attacked is scheduled: 25th day of the 12th month.
  • On the 25th day of the 12th month, the battle again does not take place due to disagreements between the local businessmen who initially agreed with the attack. The attack is again put on hold.
  • His Holiness the Dalai Lama, his 2 tutors and retinue returns to Tibet from India.
  • Amdruk Gompo Tashi consults Dorje Shugden via the Panglung Oracle. The oracle said that the failure to carry out the initial advice was very bad. Now, a new base camp should be formed at the South of Lhasa, at Lhoka-Chaksta Drikung Thang, as soon as possible. Failure to do so, and all would be lost.
  • The oracle also instructs for the Changtso of Gyalthang Kharchen Rinpoche (main attendant of Gyalthang Kharchen) to immediately go to Lhoka-Chaksta Drikung Thang, even if he only has 5 or 6 supporters. Dorje Shugden promises to provide them with help if this is carried out.
  • The oracle also gives Changtso of Gyalthang Kharchen Rinpoche and his initial followers a ceremonial sword, personally used by the oracle himself.
  • Following the oracle’s advice, Changtso of Gyalthang Kharchen Rinpoche sets up a base camp at Lhoka-Chaksta Drikung Thang. Subsequently, every time the oracle is consulted, He would tell the person to immediately go to the base camp.
  • The number of supporters at Lhoka-Chaksta Drikung Thang grows, and a full regiment is formed.
  • Soldiers of the new regiment, called the Chushi Gangdruk, dig the land to make trenches, and another ceremonial sword is found. The sword has the same likeness to the one carried by Manjushri.
  • The 2 swords form Chushi Gangdruk’s official flag.
  • A battle at Lhoka is initiated, and successful. It is important to note that due to Dorje Shugden’s intervention, the Dalai Lama later has a safe escape route out of Tibet through the Southern passage.
  • On 10 March 1959, a dangerous plot by the Chinese is evident against the Dalai Lama, a few select leaders of the Tibetan government, and the Khenpos of the 3 major monasteries: Gaden, Sera and Drepung. The plot included the arrest of the chosen individuals during an invited gathering at an army camp at Silimpok. The gathering is under pretense of a celebration in honour of the Dalai Lama’s achievement in obtaining a Geshe degree.
  • Due to widespread opposition by the people of Lhasa, the invitees do not attend the celebration. Dorje Shugden later prophesied that should they have gone, Tibet, Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan politics would have perished.
  • On 11 March 1959, Changtso Lobsang Yeshe (on the instruction of Khenpo Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche) and Geshe Thepi of Sera Mey Monastery consults Dorje Shugden via the Panglung Oracle. Note that Khenpo Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche was bestowed the title “khenpo” during his abbotship of Sera Mey Monastery. Upon his retirement, he became known as “kensur”, or abbot emeritus.
  • The oracle instructs for everyone to leave the room, except for Changtso Lobsang Yeshe and advises the following: the life of His Holiness is in grave danger as the Chinese has yet another plan, and that the Dalai Lama should immediately escape to India.
  • The oracle also appoints for Dronche Phala (General Secretary of the Dalai Lama) to relay to the Dalai Lama the advice given above.
  • Dorje Shugden also added that, if needed, he promises to send 30-50 monks to assist in Dalai Lama’s escape, and that the Southern route was the only safe passage out of Tibet. He adds that even if they do not reach India, they would at least reach the borders of Bhutan. They must escape immediately.
  • A prophecy is given that this is the beginning of the bleak period of time where there would be no (Tibetan) religion or government. However, in the future, the (Tibetan) religion would again rise and surpass its past glory.
  • 33 monks from Pomra Khamtsen of Sera Mey monastery volunteer to protect the Dalai Lama on his journey out of Tibet. The oracle gives each monk blessed yellow rice, and proclaims that there would be war, but all will be safe.
  • Changtso Lobsang Yeshe relays the advice given by Dorje Shugden to Khenpo Ngawang Dakpa.
  • On the 2nd day of the 2nd month (of the Tibetan calendar), Khenpo Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche relays to Dronche Phala (General Secretary of the Dalai Lama) the advice pertaining to his Holiness’s safety and the next course of action.
  • At night, 10 monks were sent to Norbulingka to protect His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
  • On 14 March 1959, Changtso Lobsang Yeshe seeks to consult Dorje Shugden via the Panglung Oracle again. At the instruction of Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Ratoe Chowar Rinpoche is already received by the oracle before Changtso Lobsang Yeshe.
  • The oracle instructs for everyone to leave the room, except for Ratoe Chowar Rinpoche. Following the audience, the oracle goes outside and shoots 3 arrows towards the Southern direction. A ceremonial sword is also given to Ratoe Chowar Rinpoche, with the advice that if the sword was waved by a person named Dorjee in the air 3 times in the direction of the Dalai Lama’s escape route, Dorje Shugden would ensure a safe journey.
  • Changtso Lobsang Yeshe consults the oracle and is advised to leave Tibet the next day. In parting, the oracle places a handful of blessed yellow rice in the personal red handkerchief of the oracle himself and tells Changtso Lobsang Yeshe that in times of trouble, to burn the rice and everything would be alright. A lot of yellow blessed rice is also given for fellow travelers.
  • In addition, the oracle also passes to Changtso Lobsang Yeshe his Pudri (a bracelet-like item) to give to Khenpo Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche.
  • Dorje Shugden, via the oracle, advises that the monks should do as many prayers as possible.
  • On 17 March 1959, His Holiness the Dalai Lama leaves the Tibetan capital, Lhasa to India.
  • On 31 March 1959, the Dalai Lama, crosses the Indian border after an epic 15-day journey on foot from Lhasa, over the Himalayan mountains. The Dalai Lama is received by the Assam Rifles at Chutangmu/Khenzimani in the Tawang sector of Arunachal Pradesh (the NEFA).
  • Dorje Shugden safely guided Dalai Lama, his mother, family, brothers, teachers, ministers and thousands into the safety of India as promised by Dorje Shugden. They followed the route chosen and carried the sword of Dorje Shugden.

1. The Dalai and Kensur Ngawang Dakpa

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama during his debate examination at Jokhang Temple, Lhasa. That morning, the young scholar was examined by 30 scholars of logic. In the afternoon, the Dalai Lama debated Buddhist philosophy with 15 scholars, and in the evening, 35 more scholars tested his knowledge of the canon of monastic discipline and metaphysics. Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche was one of the examiners at this debate exam.

In this picture, Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche (seated, on the left) wore the scholar’s hat, as one of the masters chosen to debate with the Dalai Lama. For an examiner to be chosen to test the knowledge of Tibet’s King and Spiritual Leader, his knowledge and debate prowess must be incomparable, highly respected and beyond criticism. Kensur Rinpoche was seated while the Dalai Lama stood in front of a crowd of Sangha being tested for his Geshe degree by these great masters.

3. Panglung Ritue (Retreat) and The Panglung Oracles

This picture below shows the location of Panglung Ritue (Retreat) and Sera Monastery.

The 1st to 6th Panglung Kutens (oracles) resided on this land together with their families and entourages. This was also the location where Dorje Shugden gave the last instructions to Ratoe Chowar Rinpoche and Changtso Lobsang Yeshe for His Holiness’ safe get-away to India. Unfortunately, this retreat was destroyed during the time of unrest between China and Tibet.

The following pictures are the ruins of Panglung Ritue.


4. The Dalai Lama & Chushi Gangdruk

Chushi Gangdruk Self Defence Forces, Lhokha, U-Tsang Province, 1958. Chushi Gangdruk was formed at the instruction of Dorje Shugden. Their protector has been Dorje Shugden.

4. Panglung Oracle




In 1959, His Excellency Jawaharlal Nehru, the Prime Minister of India bestowed 24 tracts of land unto His Holiness the Dalai Lama when he entered exile into India. The Dalai Lama gave these lands to his people, to form the 24 Tibetan Settlements that we know today. Because of these settlements, the Tibetan people in exile were transformed from stateless refugees to Indian protectorates, and were able to reestablish themselves in exile to preserve their cultural and religious heritage.

These lands were an opportunity for the lineage-holders of the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism and the other incarnated tulkus, Geshes, monks and lay people to rebuild their monasteries, their lives and the very fabric of society that they had left behind in Tibet. Thus, the reestablished monasteries provided a place for the high lamas, Geshes and monks to continue their lineage and to create great powerhouses of Dharma to spread out into the world.

All of this would have been impossible had the Chinese been successful in their plots to assassinate the Dalai Lama in the tumultuous period before his flight into exile. After all, who else amongst the Tibetans commanded the respect of India’s Prime Minster at a level that he would willingly offer his country’s land for the preservation of another people’s culture? Without these 24 tracts of land, the Tibetan settlements would never have been established and the Tibetan people would have been forced to assimilate into Indian society, thus losing their precious cultural identity, traditions and religion forever.

For Tibet’s most recognisable face to leave the country under the watchful eye of the Chinese army was no mean feat. In fact, it would have been impossible without Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s intervention and Dorje Shugden’s powerful clairvoyance. Not only did Dorje Shugden form the guerilla group (Chushi Gangdruk) which would protect the Dalai Lama’s escape party, but he also divined the route of escape for the Dalai Lama and his entourage, and safeguarded the party throughout their entire journey.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Excellency Jawaharlal Nehru on an elephant. This photograph was taken whilst the Dalai Lama was visiting India in 1957 before he fled into exile, and demonstrates the close relationship and mutual respect shared between two great beings.

It was the Dalai Lama’s flight into exile that inspired the hundreds of thousands of Tibetans to leave with him. Had the Dalai Lama not fled to India, most of the lamas would have remained with him in Tibet, and perished in the systematic destruction of their religion by the Chinese army. Therefore Dorje Shugden’s involvement ensured that Dalai Lama survived the harrowing journey over the Himalayas, and that Tibet’s four schools of Buddhism were not lost to the world forever.

Despite his single-handedly protecting Tibet’s greatest treasure, Dorje Shugden through his oracle has never once mentioned his accomplishments, let alone bragged about them. Even after the ban came into effect, the Protector continued to advocate compassion, tolerance and Dharma practice via his oracles. However, instead of receiving the praise, recognition and worship that he evidently deserves, this Protector is demonized by the very people who were saved by him. In their rush to proclaim that he is sectarian and against Tibetan independence, they forget that without the Dalai Lama (whom he saved), there would not be Tibetan settlements and therefore, there would not be Tibetan culture today – that is, they as Tibetans would not exist today, even to demonize him.

Knowing just how much Dorje Shugden did for their nation, the very monks who escorted the Dalai Lama out of Tibet weep because they know who really saved Tibet and the Dalai Lama’s life. Forced to make the distressingly impossible choice between their beloved spiritual leader and their precious Dharma Protector, many have expressed that they wished they were dead rather than live to make this choice.

This story is a mere glimpse into the extent of Dorje Shugden’s patience, wisdom and compassion, all of which point to his nature as Manjushri which Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and many other high lamas have declared. It is incredible that just one being can be solely responsible for the survival of the four Great Schools of Tibetan Buddhism and its estimated 20 million adherents in the world today. If Dorje Shugden had never shown the way for the Dalai Lama and his entourage to escape, they and Tibetan Buddhism would have remained in Tibet and perished. That the Tibetans have their culture, religion and education, and can continue to protest for their independence today, is all because of Dorje Shugden.

Dorje Shugden is a perfect and complete object of refuge in himself. We are very fortunate to be able to come across his practice, his lineage and his history. He is truly a Protector for whom his time has come. We should further endeavour to study up, learn and contemplate his nature, teachings, history and lineage. If we are to adopt or have already adopted him as our Protector, we are extremely fortunate and have come under the loving guidance of a father-like figure. Dorje Shugden can never lead us wrong or astray. His nature is compassion, his basis is wisdom and his method is skilful activity. He is no other than the great bodhisattva of emptiness Manjushri himself. As elucidated by the thousands of masters, scholars, teachers and mahasiddhas of the four traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, once we have come across this precious Protector, we can offer up our hearts and trust and never look back again. We have found a powerful ally, a close friend and a Buddha who can lead us to enlightenment, all wrapped up in one. How incredibly fortunate we are due to our karmic dispositions from a previous time that we have encountered this illustrious Manjushri in protector form. Hold him close, and never let him go.



Zasep Tulku Rinpoche’s autobiography ‘A Tulku’s Journey from Tibet to Canada’, published in 2016, provides historical evidence and irrefutable proof that the Central Tibetan Administration is falsifying the facts when it comes to the practice of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

The autobiography of Zasep Tulku Rinpoche, a high lama of the Gelug lineage, provides accurate historical accounts of the Dorje Shugden practice. Click to enlarge.

Historical accounts show that prior to the politicization of the Dorje Shugden practice by the Central Tibetan Administration, this popular deity was relied upon by Dharma practitioners to help in their spiritual practice. Contrary to detractors’ claims about Dorje Shugden being ‘anti-Dharma’, this Dharma Protector practice was traditionally deemed to be suitable to be practiced alongside the Highest Yoga Tantras.

Zasep Rinpoche and his family were able to escape to safety prior to the events of 1959 through the clairvoyance and prophetic advice of Dorje Shugden through one of his oracles, Lama Gelong Chojor Gyamtso.

Oracles of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden were known for the accuracy of their prophecies due to Dorje Shugden being a fully enlightened deity with perfect clairvoyance. As stated clearly by Zasep Rinpoche in his autobiography ‘A Tulku’s Journey from Tibet to Canada’, Dorje Shugden warned the Tibetans of the impending loss of their homeland but his advice was mostly ignored by the Tibetan government.

The Tibetan government chose to consult the worldly state protector Nechung, and Nechung advised that the Dalai Lama should remain in Tibet where he would be safe. This was mistaken advice, as historical events would later show. Fortunately for Tibetan Buddhists all around the world, Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang had great faith in Dorje Shugden and consulted the protector for advice on the Dalai Lama’s safety. Dorje Shugden via the Panglung Oracle urgently adviced the Dalai Lama to leave for India immediately and gave the exact escape route. In saving the Dalai Lama from certain harm, Dorje Shugden prevented the destruction of Tibetan Buddhism and preserved the future of the Tibetan culture and people.

Zasep Rinpoche’s account of events concur with monastic records that it was indeed Dorje Shugden who saved the Dalai Lama instead of Nechung, contrary to the claims of the Tibetan leadership.

Dorje Shugden’s practice was first established within the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. The Sakya Throneholders regarded this Dharma Protector as an enlightened being and Dorje Shugden, together with Dorje Setrab and Tsiu Marpo formed the triune of Sakya Protectors known as Gyalpo Sum. Today, Sakya practitioners claim that Dorje Shugden was never widely practiced by their lineage but history proves otherwise. The undeniable fact is that before the CTA’s religious ban, Dorje Shugden was practiced first by the Sakyas and was later transmitted to the Gelug school where it was practiced by the majority of the Gelugpas.

Contrary to the CTA’s claims that Dorje Shugden’s practice is sectarian, Zasep Rinpoche’s autobiography shows how practitioners of all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism lived and practiced together in harmony, especially during the early years of exile in India. It was only when the CTA launched a virulent smear campaign against Dorje Shugden that the general public began to label Dorje Shugden a sectarian practice. In truth, Dorje Shugden’s practice is no more sectarian than the practices of other Dharma Protectors such as Mahakala Bernagchen, Achi Chokyi Drolma or Dorje Legpa, who protect the Karma Kagyu, Drikung Kagyu and Nyingma schools respectively.

By the 1980s, the Tibetan government had failed to fulfil multiple promises to return the Tibetan people to their homeland. A scapegoat was needed and they made one out of an ancient Buddhist practice, pinning the loss of Tibet and the failure of the Tibetan cause on Dorje Shugden. In his autobiography, Zasep Rinpoche is of the same opinion, stating that “…the [Dorje Shugden] controversy was orchestrated by the Tibetan Central Administration…”

The Tibetan leadership effectively sanctioned witch-hunts on Dorje Shugden practitioners and persecuted them using government instruments, declaring that simply by being a Shugden worshipper, one was effectively an enemy of the Tibetan nation.

As a result of the hatred against Dorje Shugden practitioners instigated by the Tibetan leadership, virtually all Shugden Buddhists had to fear for their lives, or at least for their safety.

Dorje Shugden’s beneficial practice has continued to thrive due to the courage and commitment of high lamas such as Zasep Tulku Rinpoche.

For centuries, Dorje Shugden has been practiced alongside the highest practices of the Gelug and Sakya lineages. Zasep Tulku Rinpoche’s list of transmission is an indication that the highest scholars viewed the Protector as an enlightened being compatible with their yidam practices.

  1. Yes~ The Supreme Protector of the Holy Dharma~ Lord Dorje Shugden

  2. Dharmapala Dorje Shugden is a truly enlightenment and devoted protector. With his commitment to protect Lord Tsongkhapa teaching Dorje Shugden able to help HH Dalai Lama escape out of Tibet to India in 1959 swiftly and safely.

    With such strong evidence and article show as above, we cant denied the Truth behind…

    Thanks Dharmapala Dorje Shugden, with your protection Lord Tsongkhapa teaching sure will spread into 10 directions and all the practitioners will be obstacles free hence to help their Guru to fulfill their Guru wishes…

  3. We have always known that the CTA have no qualms whatsoever of lying. Later, the Dalai Lama’s own personal translator Thupten Jimpa was caught for his blatant lies [see: http://www.dorjeshugden.com/all-articles/features/thubten-jinpa-prostrates-to-his-gurus-throne/. And now the sickening trail of deceit leads directly to the Dalai Lama’s front door and this is the most disappointing of all.

    When I read the statements by Changtso Lobsang Yeshe I asked myself how reliable his statements might be. But it occurred to me that, for the Changtso of Kensur Ngawang Dakpa Rinpoche to pull off this lie so publicly, he would have to enlist the help of so many people including Trijang Rinpoche, the Kensur himself, Ratoe Chowar Rinpoche, the Panglung oracle (and the other monks present) and so many others. It would have been impractical or even possible. But for the Dalai Lama’s office and the CTA to lie, they just need to make unsubstantiated statements on His Holiness’s website. It is an easy one to decide.

    The evidence is clear – Dorje Shugden was not merely consulted on that one, albeit all-important occasion but was in fact a “long-consulted” Dharma Protector. And what is more, had Dorje Shugden’s earlier advice been obeyed, perhaps the Tibetan people’s unfortunate and present circumstances could have been averted.

    To lie on this scale is not only foolish but shows serious ingratitude to so many who sacrificed themselves and readily put themselves at risk to see to the Dalai Lama’s safe exit out of Tibet. It is an insult to so many people, including highly esteemed monks, and a slap to their faces for being loyal and devoted to the Dalai Lama. But then again, as we have seen, for these people, devotion is only an optional thing, not a creed their live by.

    The Tibetan people should now take note that Dorje Shugden has never failed in his divinations nor refused to help the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people and since the 1970′s when the Dalai Lama and his coterie began distancing themselves from Dorje Shugden, they have denied themselves precisely the calibre of divine assistance they have needed. Instead they relied on Nechung who has been proven wrong on so many instances. Therefore it should not be surprising that today the Tibetans are still no where close to returning to their homeland.

    If the Dalai Lama’s office and the CTA can lie about something so important, and if the divine assistance of an enlightened Protector can be swept under a rug, then nothing is sacred to them. Is it any wonder why with all the Buddha’s and holy beings’ powers the Tibetans have yet to be successful in their cause? It has nothing to do with Dorje Shugden “malevolence” but everything to do with their collective negative karma for so seriously disparaging the Three Jewels by the ban and all the unsavoury acts done in its name.

    Is it not time for the Tibetan people to collectively take action?

  4. Thank you to the administrators for putting up this very extensive articles with all the relevant proofs. It is undoubtable that the Protector Gyalchen Dorje Shugden that actually saved the HH Dalai Lama, Tibetan Buddhism, Tibet’s Culture and people.
    More importantly, with this one single event Tibetan Buddhism spread from India to the rest of the world. Without that, I doubt that I would have accessed the profound Dharma from the Tibetan school. This is the most precious gift from the Protector to millions and billions of beings.

    I rejoice. May the ban be lifted soon!


  5. Thank you does not cover the joy my heart is feeling at this moment, too often for DS practitioners face a daunting task to cut through biased information on the internet from sources that are hard for the average person to check.
    What is their to refute now? in my humble opinion DS.COM has done a brilliant job in providing yet again as always unbiased information a great article I can see myself reading again and savour this history in the making.
    With folded hands to Admin and DS supporters everywhere..

  6. What a great being Dorje Shudgen is!
    With the documents and video, I believe this information is very true. A surprise to us who thought that Nechung is protector instead. The Dalai Lama’s biography and movies made us believe that it’s Nechung.

    Salute to Dorje Shugden for always being with Tibetan and the sentient beings in the world. You, who have the great compassion and wisdom, may you free us from the endless suffering circle.

  7. More evidence… yet historical… so the ban still remains!
    However, to be more positive, I think the above is necessary for exiled Tibetans in particular, those who have sided with the DL’s propaganda machine, and those who have labelled Shugden worshippers as Chinese spies!
    We just need to keep chipping away, exposing the truth, as only good karma can ripen from that wish.

  8. I think Dorje Shugden could be everyone’s Protector soon; maybe he is the emptiness teacher? I have a lot of karma with lineages other than Gelugpa; I find Dorje Shugden very appealing and do his practice daily but am I a Gelugpa? Hmm? I don’t really think so to be honest. Maybe we will all be doing this practice next life since last life/this life Dorje Shugden lead most of us out of Tibet…. I really like Manjushri in this form:).

  9. I cannot fathom why HHDL did not want to admit it was Dorje Shugden who assisted the HHDL and his entourage by clearing the obstacles for their escape from Tibet. Nor why HHDL did not stop his administration from claiming that it was Nechung who assisted. Not only that but the CTA and HHDL administration have imposed a ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden and calling him a demon. I would like to think that the motivation of HHDL is purely beneficial on a global scale. I hope, soon, that the compassion shown by Dorje Shugden for those who escaped unharmed be told by those very people who were there during their escape. That is the least one could do to show gratitude.

  10. This article is mind-blowing. I am truly impressed but not surprised. The facts in this article only completes my belief and faith in Dorje Shugden and his divine powers. Dorje Shugden single-handedly saved Tibetan Buddhism. So this only lies the one question: When will CTA wake up to the TRUTH and stop blinding people with lies and false facts? Lift the Ban for goodness sake. Let the practice of Dorje Shugden be FREE! So many people’s lives will be saved by this practice. Mine has tremendously.

  11. This article is fascinating as it reaffirms what some of us know with regards to the truth of the matter WITH solid documented proof. It is amazing that these documents have been revealed to dorjeshugden.com. It shows that the source believes in the team behind this website and that they are impartial and will share the news without bias plus they also believe this website to be THE forefront of Dorje Shugden related matters and news. Rejoice!

  12. I saw this in the forum and thought it should be shared here as well.

    Quote from: Blueupali on Today at 10:02:14 AM

    Okay everybody, I think I have had some sort of misunderstanding here, and please have some patience with me as I cannot keep all the Gelugpa lamas names strait (I was looking at the glossary and that did help) but I thought we already knew that the Dalai Lama was relying on Dorje Shugden’s oracle when he got out of Tibet? I understand that sometimes the office of the Dalai Lama may claim things in whatever political fashion suits them at the time, but is there some new person that wasn’t mentioned before that is affirming that it was in fact Dorje Shugden that got the Dalai Lama out of Tibet? Forgive me— I did read all of the English parts of the article before someone says “I wish you guys would read the articles…”


    Dear Blueupali,

    I don’t think you misunderstood anything and yes, it was Dorje Shugden who saved the Dalai Lama’s life and provided both the divine and organizational means for the Dalai Lama to escape unharmed, carrying the Tibetan people’s hopes and legacy, not to mention the Buddhist heritage out to India, safely. This itself is completely the opposite action for one who is accused of wanting to harm the Dalai Lama and Tibetans.

    The point of this new article as I see it, is that Dorje Shugden’s prominence in helping the Dalai Lama now has concrete proof and it is not merely hearsay, unlike the unsubstantiated arguments against the Protector. And while those of us who are familiar with the Bodhicitta of the Protector, and those of us who trust our Gurus may not need proof, there are those who have obeyed the ban blindly, who should now look at facts. They have been horribly misled and have in fact not only denied themselves the very Protector they need during these times, they may also have joined in disparaging a Buddha. These people need to know the truth so that they can correct their mistakes. And the evidence does not come from just any where but from extremely credible sources with names and details of events.

    We see that Dorje Shugden had the clairvoyance to plan even a couple of years ahead of 1959 and we see how the Protector literally formed the regiment that would secure the safe passage for the Dalai Lama to escape. We see from the literature how such accomplished masters consulted with Dorje Shugden indicating their absolute trust and we see how accurate the Protector has been all along. Contrast this with the Protector the Tibetan government have chosen to take advice from

    In between the lines, we must also see how maligned a great Protector has been.

    Lobsang Yeshe’s affidavit which has been verified by Sera Mey is singularly sufficient to topple the arguments against Shugden, the justifications for the ban and the false accusations that he is merely a demon wishing harm upon the Dalai Lama. This written testimony which cannot be refuted proves that that everything said about Dorje Shugden in supporting the ban were malicious lies! This is the smoking gun if you like.

    Those who believed in the reasons for the ban must now see if they can reconcile the proven actions of a great Protector against the accusations leveled against him. If they cannot, then someone must have been telling lies. And how can Lobsang Yeshe lie and why would he, EVEN BEFORE the ban as the evidence predates any opposition to Dorje Shugden. Are those things we read in the affidavit the actions of a sinister spirit who wants to harm the Tibetans? Or are those actions indicative of a very power enlightened Protector?

  13. I truly rejoice to read this article and to have the chance to sight the documents which contain the actual truth to all the lies and attacks of the great Dorje Shugden. Being such a highly attained being he continues to show us the essence of the Buddha’s teachings by being very patient and compassionate admist all the lies being thrown at him.
    “The truth is inconvertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is …… ” by Winston Churchill.
    The ban will come down very soon . The signs are very clear . REJOICE !

  14. Wow this is mind-blowing. This article is so extensive with well documented concrete proofs that contained actual facts of how Dorje Shugden through his clairvoyance and compassion single handedly saved Tibetan Buddhism and HHDL’s life by paving a conducive condition for HHDLto escape unharmed.

    I rejoiced that the documented proofs were available and revealed to dorjeshugden.com. Thank you DS.com team for exposing the truth to us. May the ban be lifted soon!

  15. Dear people of DORJESHUGDEN.COM,

    I don’t like to pray just because I am told to pray. I like to know more of whom I am praying to and the logic behind it. DORJESHUGDEN.COM gives me so much information, background, history as well as the real living lamas who do the practices. Seeing these lamas in the Great Masters section with explanations of what they have contributed or done, and also of their practice moved me and led me to have great faith in this protector.

    I will not give up my practice of this protector. DORJESHUGDEN.COM has helped my faith to grow stronger because of the knowledge I gained from the abundance of information available on your website.

    I would like to make a monthly donation of USD200 to support your good work and this will be for the next 3 years. I hope you will kindly accept this as a token of appreciation from someone who has benefitted directly from your good work.

    With gratitude,

    P.S. My friends and I have ordered many items from the online shop (http://shop.dorjeshugden.com/) and we have received everything in good condition.

    I travelled between Japan and Chicago often. Many of my friends are bilingual and we wish this website is in Japanese too as I am sure that many Japanese would want to read about this protector and accept Dorje Shugden as their personal protectors.

  16. Dear people behind dorjeshugden.com,

    I had the honour and fortune to receive the practice and teachings of Dorje Shugden from a very qualified Lama of the Gelug tradition. This practice has been close to me and the protector Dorje Shugden has helped me a lot in my life and I am grateful.

    Then came the new of controversy between the Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden which shook my faith a little and left me confused for a period of time. During those times of confusion and sadness as I could not understand why Dorje Shugden would harm people, I found this website.

    Dorjeshugden.com has a wealth of information which helped me understand further the nature of our protector. One such article which hit home and regained my sunshine of faith was the Uncovered Truths: http://www.dorjeshugden.com/all-articles/the-controversy/uncovered-truth-evidence-of-how-dorje-shugden-was-actually-behind-the-dalai-lamas-escape-out-of-tibet-to-india-in-1959/

    The information presented here is not biased and straight to the point. By reading the information here and the forum related to the website, I have regained my composure and it put me back onto the path of my practice. It has made me more grounded in my practice and understanding of the protector.

    I thank all those who are involved with this website from the bottom of my heart. I am sure there are more people out there like myself whom have benefited and I fold my hands to all of you for you are doing so much for Dorje Shugden and especially the Buddha Dharma of this time.

    My gratitude to you all,

    Jagger Ko

  18. Evidences show that, indeed, Dorje Shugden was relied upon, with success, for the Dalai Lama’s escape. The debate is soon to be closed and the undeniable truth will prevail. Dorje Shugden is nothing less than a fully enlightened, reliable Buddha and protector to which the world should be grateful, for without him, the spread of Tibetan Buddhism would not have been at a the large scale that we see today.

  19. Thank you the team of Dorje Shugden for sharing the great article.I truly rejoice that more truth come to us ! Dorje Shugden pratice is extremely powerful,he is always help when help is needed !! He is help me a lot after i do his pratice…i am grateful. May the ban be lifted soon ,more and more people can learn his pratice !!

  20. This is the proof that no one can deny. It was Dorje Shugden who saved H.H. the Dalai Lama and helped him and his entourage to escape to India from where he and the Tibetan community rebuilt the monasteries and preserved the Tibetan culture. I was very moved by H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s prediction that “there would be a bleak period of time without religion or government but in the future, the religion would once again achieve and surpass its past glory”. I strongly believe this will happen and am looking forward to it.

  21. DS.COM is much, much more than an information site on DS practice but a hotline of information / articles and news, is pro-guru devotion whatever side of the debate you fall on, Are all welcome here…Is a welcome change and greatly appreciated.
    DS.COM is keeping our DS practice alive, safe and well for the future. I am sure that for many of us out there DS.COM is a beacon of light in an otherwise one-sided environment.
    Thank you Admin & Supporters Everywhere – Please support DS.COM for what it is a catalyst to educate and change minds.

  22. Dorjeshugden.com getting hold of these affidavits shows clearly that Dorje Shugden himself is proud of what you guys are doing otherwise why would such earth-shattering evidences land in your hands. Your website has provided me with much knowledge, strength, understanding and determination that when I am questioned by other people on why I practise Dorje Shugden, I am able to counter their ignorance with my knowledge, truth and facts. Thank you, to all of you behind the virtual screen, for giving me some solace and illuminating the truth for me through this website.

    That aside, this article is truly mind blowing.. what more can the CTA or the crew of HHDL say to refute the fact that Dorje Shugden was indeed the one behind the greatest journey in Tibetan, no.. the world’s history. If it was not for Dorje Shugden, Tibet and all that’s associated with it, would have perished. The global fame of His Holiness today, his milllions of followers, the millions of lives he has touched, his extremely powerful influence in the world, his upholding of Tibetan Buddhism, his nobel peace prize award has all come about because of Dorje Shugden, who gave him the biggest gift – HH’s life for him to dedicate to serving others.

    Such is the power and clairvoyance of Dorje Shugden that even way before there was any hint of threats to His Holiness’s life to the common mind, Dorje Shugden had already paved the way for the great escape by first forming the guerrilla group, Chushi Gangdruk, and then by securing the base camp in the South of Lhasa, at Lhoka-Chaksta Drikung Thang. Dorje Shugden even stressed that failure to do so would result in all being lost therefore it was imperative that this was carried out and done. Little did anyone know that this was to be the ONLY escape route that was safe for HH and his entire entourage to successfully escape through.

    If Dorje Shugden was an evil spirit as claimed by many, then his vision and clairvoyance could not be so accurate and for such a long term benefit – literally benefiting not only the Dalai Lama but billions around the world and in the future. Buddhas give advice and instructions taking into consideration the benefit for the person and others on a longer term basis, sometimes even onto next lives. Should the wrong advice by Dorje Shugden been bestowed upon HHDL… it would be bye bye forever to Tibetan Buddhism and culture. The magnitude of what Dorje Shugden has done is beyond words.

    Additionally, if you were thinking that these affidavits were fake, then why is there an official stamp of authenticity by Sera Monastery. Why does the accounts from Lobsang Yeshe go in line so closely as to what Trijang Rinpoche has written in his biography The Illusory Play, when both were not physically together. Why would all the high lamas lie? What benefit would they get? Why has the two key lamas who are fundamental to the upholding of Tibetan Buddhism; Kyabje Pabongkha Rinpoche & Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, who wrote the modern day Lamrim for our enlightenment, promote the practise of Dorje Shugden so heavily? Why are their incarnations back to continue the practises of their previous lives? Because these lamas have reincarnated back, and so has HH with his line of incarnations, it shows that they all must have done or are doing something right to all be able to keep their respective line of incarnations. Who knows whether HH will reincarnate back after this 14th incarnation, but we definitely know that Trijang Rinpoche and Pabongkha Rinpoche has!

    So a big thumbs up, though that may not even be suffice, to Dorje Shugden for single handedly saving HH, Tibetans, Lamas, Geshes, Sangha, Tibetan Buddhism, Tibetan Culture. Because of you, Dorje Shugden, I can study, learn and practise the Tibetan School of Buddhism today.

  23. It is chilling to think that Dalai Lama and his administration could vilify Dorje Shukden to this extent and make demons out of the people who saved his life. It is wrong for anyone not to show gratitude but even worse if you are supposed to be the symbol of Buddhahood on earth and the target of your attack is an enlightened deity.

    Look at the Tibetan people now. Are they better off or worse off after Dalai Lama banned Shukden? Have they progressed in their cause or are they poorer for it? The biggest losers from this debacle are the Tibetan people. Following the ban has led the people into a wilderness and when Dalai Lama dies, what or who will they turn to?

    Look at the Shukden monks and monasteries. Shar Ganden and Serpon Monastery are growing. NKT is the biggest Buddhist centre in the world. All the Shukden monks continue to practice and teach the dharma and are doing well. Shukden lamas have returned one by one without exception. One by one, lies about Shukden have been exposed. And yet the Tibetan people continue to believe the lies.

    This website has stood for the truth from the beginning and other than slurs and insults by Shukden haters, you will not be able to find one solid refutation of any claims made in this site. Dalai Lama and his administration and all the non-Shukden lamas and people cannot contest anything said so far and articulated in this site. The body, speech and mind of Shukden and the lineage masters are alive within this site.

  24. What a shocking revelation! It was Dorje Shugden who helped HHDL escaped from Tibet, not Nechung, finally another written truth has reveal itself.

    Trijiang Rinpoche has mentioned how Dorje Shugden has helped HHDL in his biography before but now another person’s statement totally supports Trijiang Rinpoche’s account.

    Dorje Shugden not only helped to preserve Gelug lineage but also the other lineages, it proved that Dorje Shugden is not sectarian at all. If He was, He wouldn’t have helped the high lamas of another lineages escaped from Tibet. Without Dorje Shugden’s accurate prophecy to guide HHDL out of Tibet, we won’t be learning Dharma now.

    Thank you Admin for sharing this news with us and many who has misunderstood Dorje Shugden.

  25. Hola all dorjeshugden practitioners and the team behind this website!

    Once again, dorjeshugden.com has shown us your incredible work! I admire how you guys have put in so much effort in revealing the truth to the world. You guys have make our faith in DorjeShugden firmer and now unmovable! We believe what we saw from our own eyes. I believe these affidavit you shown us are genuine. It must be the great work that you are doing has brought you result that this precious affidavit landed in your hand.

    Your website has always been my source of learning. Please continue to post more shocking posts here and let the world know we are practicing a genuine protector who single handedly saved DAlai Lama, He is not a demon.

    Thank you!

  26. After read through the whole story, actually I think Dorje Shugden is very helpful and powerful protector. I just can imagine that without him what will happen to our Buddhism lineage. He is a hero to protect our Buddhism lineage during critical time. He had help Dalai Lama and entourage escaped from the danger and heading to safe country. Looking at now, Dalai Lama has continue to spread dharma and pass down the Buddhism lineage to us as Buddhist practitioners. We indirectly gain the benefit from Dorje Shugden. Why ban Dorje Shugden? Everybody should have own freedom to choose their protector. What harms Dorje Shugden have done to us? I don’t see any so far. Lets pray the ban can be lifted soon.

  27. Thanks for the well written article. I have heard of Tibetan monks taking trance and a deity would speak thru the oracle. It is a wonder that this deity can give advise on a national scale. For some or most people we may find it unusual for another person or being to speak from the same body. People who believe the power of the beings would ask for advises on personal, marriage, career to business.

    Here this deity Dorje Shugden is working on a grander scale, saving the 14th Dalai Lama, the Tibetans religions and cultures as proven by the people who have survived the ordeal. If Dorje Shugden has the capacity to protect and rescue a whole country it would be peanuts to save a single person, there is no doubt as demonstrated by the account here. Why Dorje Shugden is using his power in the form of advise to save the Tibetans? As he cannot live forever inside the monk who is taking trance, he also cannot enjoy wealth and ‘freedom’ that comes from with a living individual. Why is Dorje Shugden doing all of these? What is Dorje Shugden doing this for?

  28. Well done admin! Another interesting and fact proving post!

    I love the facts that they jive with Trijang Rinpoche’s autobiography.

    Dorje Shugden, the great compassionate Dharma protector who have shown His clairvoyance over and over again until today. What benefit does He get from doing all this for those who believe and practice Him?

    Lobsang Yeshe’s affidavit is a fantastic prove that it was Dorje Shugden who was the one who helped HHDL out of Tibet. And also, it was Dorje Shugden’s tangka that HHDL carried with Him when HHDL was leaving Tibet to India.

    Although the country, Tibet is lost but Tibetan Buddhism is NOT. Dorje Shugden brought Tibetan Buddhism far and wide today and not forgetting the kindness of India’s Prime Minister who gave the land for the Tibetans to settle down.

  29. It is amazing how ds.com team has managed to dig out such AUTHENTIC documents. I can’t wait to see more documents and proofs of what really happened in the past history. There must be more!

    The first thought that came in to my mind was Dorje Shugden … the protector I have been relying on had single-handedly saved Tibetan Buddhism from extinction. We know DS saved HHDL but this is a huge realisation to me. Without the sutra and tantra of Vajrayana Buddhism, Enlightenment would have been almost impossible. This is a big deal and DS is definitely no low class protector. Instead, he is a protector who has given humanity hope and preserved the methods for us get out of samsara.

  30. Thank you ds.com for this timely article here. The document that was featured here is real convincing. There is really no cause for Changtso Lobsang Yeshe to write an untrue account leading to the successful escape of HHDL and his group to India. To my mind, I think Dorje Shugden have saved the entire Tibet. This truly reinforced my belief that I have found a Protector who is so powerful and enlightened. May there be freedom for everyone to practice the religion of their choice.

  31. Whilst I rejoice in all the positive comments, I think everyone needs a reality check!

    Why should the DL lift the ban? The politics of Tibet, it’s people, and the wider Buddhist family have changed exponentially since the events of 1959.

    The ban has focused minds on “Shugden Chinese spies”;

    1. whilst breeding hatred and mistrust within the exiled Tibetan community and within the Gelug traditions that have spread around this world.
    2. whilst the DL destroys the Karma Kagyu tradition from the inside using his puppet Urgyen Trinley as 17th Karmapa
    3. whilst promoting a singular “Buddhist” tradition based on Bon occult doctrine, with the Nechung Oracle as the defender of Tibetan culture and religion.
    4. whilst accumulating millions of $US each year from the “Free Tibet” brand, where in reality, exiled Tibetans are no closer to returning home than when they left.

    Why should the Dalai Lama lift the ban?

  32. Dorje Shugen via the Panglung oracle gave advice to the aides of HH the Dalai Lama to inform him to leave Tibet immediately, after several attempts by the Chinese authority to trap HH the Dalai Lama through the guide of a banquet invitation.

    Lobsang Yeshe even confirmed the escape plans of the Dalai Lama via the DS oracle in the video.

    Now wevevn have the clear proof of an Affidavit that confirmed the “real story” behind the Dalai Lama’s escape. If HH the Dalai Lama had not escaped Tibet to flee to India and the Prime Minister of India had not offered land to the Tibetan refugees, we would not have the continuation of all the Tibetan monastic schools located in India today and spread around the world in all languages benefiting people all around the world.

    On this basis, I would say that because of Dorje Shugden, he saved the Dalai Lama and the Buddhist lineage and teachings of all monastic schools to benefit the world. These are characteristics of a Boddhisattva enlightened mind. Who can even doubt this for a second?

    We are thankful for Dorje Shugden who was selfless, enlightened and a Buddha.

    This is a great article that will benefit many who wants to know the truth.

  33. So glad that the truth is finally revealed! Dorje Shugden was indeed the protector that HH Dalai Lama trusted and listened to before his life changing escape! It shows lots of faith from HH’s side and that he has strong Guru Devotion for Trijang Rinpoche as well. We are so fortunate to be practicing this powerful practice of an enlightened and selfless beings! No one should say bad things about Dorje Shugden, especially those who has previously practice it. You know very clearly yourself that he is a real deal!

  34. This is really evident to proof that Dorje Shudgen is really an Enlighten Being and that he is the Protector who help the Dalai Lama to escape from Tibet. He is not a demon. Let the ban be lifted soon so that all practitioners can practice openly.

  35. Dorje Shugden in fact was not the Protector who helped the Dalai Lama to escape Tibet.

    He RID Tibet of this man. He was finally able to kick this man out of Tibet NEVER TO RETURN.

    The victory of Dorje Shugden is the Dalai Lama is OUT of Tibet and will never return.

    A battle lasting since the 5th Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden has ended with the defeat of Dorje Shugden’s enemy.

    Hail to Lord King Dorje Shugden.

    We should all be dancing in the streets and offering prayers to the great Dharma Protector for his victory.

    A victory that happened without force or blood shed by Dorje Shugden.

    He opened his magically door at the Indian border for the Dalai Lama to walk thorough. Then he closed it behind the Dalai Lama and locked this magically door of his to the Dalai Lama return to Tibet FOREVER.


    Praise to you our greatest protector DORJE SHUGDEN.

    Please remember the great Demo Tulku Rinpoche who was false accused and murdered by the Dalai Lama. Remember Demo Tulku Rinpoche’s “Kuten” of Tengye Ling Monastery.

    Remember Tengye Ling Monastery that was destroyed in 1914 by the Dalai Lama.

    May Demo Tulku Rinpoche, his Kuten and Tengye Ling Monastery rise again as a home to Lord Dorje Shugden.

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.
