Very nice! Nice to see DS monasteries growing well and spreading.

FPMT and the rest should know better. Their broken samaya hasnt been kind to the growth of their organisation. And yeah sure internet trolls, DS is taking revenge on those monasteries. Bollocks. Go and read up on karma, guru devotion and the consequences of abandoning your lamas heart practice, then come back and talk to me.

It is no wonder such beautiful murals exist in Gonsa Monastery because it also houses the largest Dorje Shugden Statue currently in the world!

Here is a short article with some pics and videos: http://www.dorjeshugden.com/?p=164

For those who may not know, the eight guiding monks, and the nine mothers are part of Dorje Shugden's entourage and mandala. The nine mothers help practitioners with their tantric practices, while the eight guiding monks help with the sutric practices. More information on Dorje Shugden's entourage and mandala can be found here: http://www.dorjeshugden.com/?p=14449

Kache Marpo, an emanation of the Great King Hayagriva is an enlightened protector in his own right. Kache Marpo assists Dorje Shugden in his activities by leading the Great Eight forced of spirits to execute the instructions of Dorje Shugden.

I must say these murals are drawn very beautifully and the details are so intricate you would think that they're so alive and want to just jump out of the wall and be with us!

You can read more about the ministers of Dorje Shugden such as Kache Marpo here: http://www.dorjeshugden.com/?p=14455

Eight Fully Ordained Monks

First are the eight fully ordained monks, emanated from the ‘sources’ of the principle deity. These eight monks are dressed in saffron-coloured robes and wear various monastic hats like the domed hat, pandit’s hat, yellow hat, split meditation hat and so forth.

They each also carry various items of monastic practice such as a monk’s staff, a begging bowl, a Dharma text and the ritual implements of vajra and bell. All of these are attributes of the eight monks that empower practitioners to hold their commitments, vows and words of honour, particularly the Vinaya.

"The purified nature of the sources, nerves, veins, ligaments, and joints are the eight monks who guide in virtuous activity who, with an emanated drama of whatever tames each being, protect those bound by samaya like a son, to you I praise."
Nine Mothers

The nine mothers are the next in the sequence of attendants. These nine beautiful maidens are emanated from the ‘elements’ of the principle deity. All of them are dressed in celestial silks garments, wear eight jewellery pieces and carry the five desirable objects.

The nine mothers hold great power to control the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

"The purified nature of the four elements and five sense objects such as form are the nine beautiful great consorts of each family who, exquisite in their youth, with the arts of love, liberate from the bindings of existence, to you I praise."
