Our second tribute to great masters!
« on: February 23, 2012, 04:39:13 PM »

As we have already mentioned, there is a special new section "Tribute to great masters" on dorjeshugden.com, here is a tribute to Gaden Trisur Lunrik Namgyal Rinpoche:

"During the Chinese revolution in 1959, Rinpoche escaped to India. Arriving at ‘Ba Se’ along the border of India and Bhutan, he continued his studies and completed the Madhyamika (Middle Way Philosophy), Abhidharma (Treasury of Knowledge), and Vinaya (Spiritual Rules and Moral Law). Apart from the normal course of studies, Rinpoche often went for meditaion retreats. In 1969, Rinpoche revised through the five major treaties of Buddhist philosophy and participated in the final exam at a renowned local Tibetan University, graduating in the 1st position of honor...."

oh, just noticed that all of the pictures and videos from Trisur Rinpoche's website are now on this website.
Cool!!

I think it would be nice to provide a link to the website on your tribute, so people can visit the site if they wish. Can you add a link please? 

Just a note: the video Teachings are part of an 11 hour series of Teachings. More videos will be added to Rinpoche's website in the coming days. So far only the first 10 out of 55 videos have been added.

Good stuff!!

This is so wonderful. I joined some friends to Paris a few years ago and had the chance to have audience with His Holiness in his center there. He is extremely holy, so humble and beautiful.

I'm so happy to see so many of these recent tributes to great masters on this website. I have my own Lama who I love very much but I really value how much this website features so many of these wonderful, old kind lamas all over the world, especially those who have shared the precious practices of our kind Protector. It's wonderful that you celebrate their lifelong works. It must be so encouraging to their students and centers everywhere.

I rejoice in the other dorjeshugden websites also, and I do sometimes go to see their writings, but I appreciate that this website has the most extensive coverage of lamas and promote all teachers across the board. It is very kind of all of you to bring their names and works to readers everywhere so we can make a blessed connection to them. Thank you most of all for always being impartial and positive, and promoting only positivity.

oh, are you in charge of His Holiness Gaden Trisur's website? You sound very concerned about him. If you are managing the website, rejoice and celebrate! This is wonderful. Please share more information you have of him. Perhaps you can give us the link here as you have suggested above.

Thank you for the link.

I am assisting with the website, but all of the credit for the content and design belongs to Tripa Labrang and the students of Trisur Rinpoche living there.  :)

Haven't seen you in awhile Losang Tenpa. You are right. It is very informative. He is really an uncommon Lama who keeps steadfastly to his lineage and he is rather politically astute as well. He is truly a master to admire, venerate and seek his blessings as he is indeed a pure monk and a great master. It is great that he is in Shar Gaden to lead the monks there with his presence. Anyway, are you in the ladrang of the Trisur Rinpoche? You seem to know whats going on with his website.

Dear HD,

That is one of the reasons I love this website and forum. It's downright addictive. This website is not connected to any centre or organization and it 'advertises' all Dorje Shugden lamas, their works and writings past and present. Anything and everything about Dorje Shugden is available for the whole world to learn from. This website is a fair and open platform for all practitioners in fact. I really like that. That's what makes this website popular.

Some websites only talk about their lama and no other lamas are allowed (which is fine. Everyone has their good reasons.)

Keep up the good work. The information, updates and news you provide really helps me in faraway Thailand.

 :)

It would be great if you can assist for many more great masters of Shugden's lineage to be known for the whole world in any platform. Especially the ones associated with Shar Gaden. This website is one of the greatest platform that allows ALL Shugden lamas to be promoted as they rightly deserve. Along with news, updates, information, many pictures, and informative histories. I have not observed anywhere else so far that this can be done. But I am sure they must exist. From this promotion, they can have more of the support they deserve. Here it's open for everyone. I like this tremendously.

I would add, for clarity, that some websites were set-up to honor a particular Lama or Teacher, so it is not that other Lamas are not allowed, it is just specific to a certain Guru.  :)

This is the main key point which makes www.dorjeshugden.com so well known. It is a platform for all Shugden lamas, lineage, practice, news and information. This shows clearly the motivation of the people behind this website. Even if I wanted to 'leave' this forum or website, where would I go to that provides the same platform? Even the Tibetan Monastic sites (bless them) and other Tibetan based Shugden sites do not provide so much information.  Thanks team! Kudos. :)

Thanks to this website, that promotes Dorje Shugden - without fear or favor - through its extensive coverage of Lamas, Monasteries, Lineages , Histories, for presenting yet another tribute to a great Master.

Yes, VL, the Guru Tree does have Dorje Shugden among the Protectors! It is a reflection of the Gaden Trisur's unwavering devotion to Dorje Shugden that Dagom Rinpoche's thangka of the Guru Tree, with Dorje Shugden in it, should be presented in his new website.

The Gaden Trisur, this great and humble Master, has shown us by example, how we can separate politics and religion in our practice. With his unwavering devotion to his Root Guru from whom he had received the Shugden practice  and with his great respect for the Dalai Lama, he never came out in open defiance to announce his practice of Shugden whilst he held office. It was after he stepped down as Gaden Tripa that he quietly and firmly made this known to all.

In an interview during his visit to Singapore in 2003 as Gaden Tripa, he described the uncommon feature of the Gelugpa Lineage as follows:
"Outwardly, the Gelugpa monk adopts a subdued and gentle form of the Shravaka practitioners who live according to the Vinaya rules of the Sutra vehicle, whilst inwardly possessing the full realization of the Generation and Completion stages of the Tantra vehicles. The Gelugpa Tradition perceives the Sutra and Tantra vehicles as complementary and not contradictory"   

The Gaden Trisur embodies  these qualities of a Gelugpa master, just as Lama Tsongkapa and his immediate disciples did and just as many great Gelug Masters of today do too. Though I must say that in this degenerate age, some great Masters, out of great compassion for all, may have had to discard the outward appearance of a monk holding the strict Vinaya rules and code.   

It stands to reason too that, as Protector of the Geug Lineage, Dorje Shugden is in monks' robes.
