Jampa Ling is a massive Monsastery in Chamdo, Kham, Tibet. They are all very stalwart practitioners of Dorje Shugden. They are against Dalai Lama's ban. Some of their teaching Tulkus while giving sermons have openly spoken against the ban. It is on youtube.

See more on them here: http://dorjeshugden.com/wp/?p=81



A little bit more information on this monastery which i thought is fascinating.

Source : http://www.travelchinaguide.com/attraction/tibet/chamdo/chambaling.htm

Built in 1444 by one of the Tsong Khapa's disciples, Jampaling Monastery (Chambaling Monastery) is located on a high mesa where Ongqu and Zhaqu Rivers meet and merge into the famous Lancang River in Chamdo Town. The monastery houses the Gelugpa Sect which belongs to Tibetan Buddhism.

Constructed as the first monastery of the Gelugpa Sect in Kham area, Jampaling Monastery has a history of about 540 years. It has the Main Assembly Hall, the Guardian Hall, the Tara Hall, the Sutra Debating Hall and 12 Zhacangs (sutra studying schools).

From the reign of the 14th abbot, the monastery adopted the Reincarnation System of living Buddha. In history, there were five main living Buddhas. Since the reign of Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), those living Buddhas have been all conferred by the central government. Today, in the monastery are still preserved a bronze seal, a plaque inscribed with 'Gandan Jampaling Monastery' granted by Emperor Kangxi and another plaque bestowed by Qianlong, also an emperor of the Qing Dynasty. In its Golden Age, the monastery housed about 5,000 monks and administered 70 small monasteries.

The most celebrated feature in the monastery is the Holy Dance, only performed during the Butter Lamp Festival that celebrates the victory of Sakyamuni against the heretics in a religious debate. The festival falls on January 15th of Tibetan calendar. During the festival, the monks wear ferocious masks and perform this religious dance to exorcise the ghosts and to pray for a good harvest next year.

Hundreds of Buddhist figures and sculptures of hierarchs, wonderful murals and Thangkas in the monastery are also worth visiting. All of them show the exquisite craftsmanship of the artisans in Chamdo.

Came across this old article and it’s really rejoice to know that so many people are receiving the blessing from Dorje Shugden!

Trijang Rinpoche confers Dorje Shugden initiation in Mongolia in early 2013. (check out for more pictures here: http://www.dorjeshugden.com/all-articles/features/trijang-rinpoche-conferred-dorje-shugden-initiation-in-mongolia-2011/)

Quote
According to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, “People who have this Shugden initiation and people who practice Dorje Shugden, those people have very great, successful meditation and practice. Even worldly measures, like worldly activities and business and job; everything becomes very successful.”
Kyabje Zong Rinpoche also said “After receiving this Dorje Shugden initiation, you have to do puja once a month. Also, it is necessary to follow the commitment, and you have to make a commitment with the lineage and with the order.
So that means, for example you [might] receive teachings from different traditions but mainly, your practice, your focus, your energy [should be put] into this lineage, the Gelugpa lineage.”

Dear TK,

Thanks for the news! Rejoice , rejoice to the peoples whom received the Sogtae.

Code: [Select]
Sogtae is the empowerment into the practice of Dorje Shugden[/i]. Before receiving Sogtae, as what have DSfriend said:
Code: [Select]
we must first receive initiation into Yamantaka and Vajrayogini's holy practices.  [/i]

Yamantaka and Vajrayogini are recognize as the higher tantric initiation. Thus to received Sogtae, as a prerequisite, we need to have this two initiation first. This is a very clear sign that Dorje Shugden is a Buddha.

Thus, for Dalai Lama to call Dorje Shugden as spirit is totally out of logic.

Amazing news to know that 10,000 more people received Shugden Sogtae. As in order to receive Sogtae the person first need to have initiation of tantric practises of Yamantaka and Vajrayogini. So can CTA explain to us why do Shugden practitioners and High Lamas bother to treat Dorje Shugden so seriously if He is merely an "evil spirit". Why do Shugden practitioners have to go through so much just for a spirit?
