Tharpa Choeling Monastery and Dromo Geshe Rinpoche
« on: December 17, 2010, 04:58:20 AM »
Interesting to see that the Dalai Lama talks about Shugden on his recent trip to this monastery:

'Moreover, Tharpa Choeling Monastery is one of the oldest Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in India. But, the propitiation of Shugden in the monastery in the past caused me inconvenience to visit. Later on, despite the fact that Shugden was propitiated by former Lamas, all the concerned people in the monastery with broad vision and reason had completely distanced themselves from the spirit worship. So, it became easy for me to come here,” His Holiness said.

I also thought it is interesting that Dromo Geshe Rinpoche is said to have stopped Shugden practice, which is implied in this article since it is Dromo Geshe Rinpoche's monastery and he attended the Dalai Lama's teachings and made offerings.
