H.H. the Great Panchen Lama is the undisputed second in rank to the Dalai Lama in Tibet. In the Dalai Lama's absence, only the Panchen Lama is the universal lama that all Tibetans in Tibet would listen to. It was said by the Dalai Lama that he took care of Tibetans outside of Tibet while Panchen Lama took care of Tibetans within Tibet. HH Panchen Lama, the holder of all vast and profound lineages of sutra/tantra and Gaden Ear whispered lineage spoke for Buddhism and preservation of Buddhist culture until his death. He was kept under torture and prison for more than ten years but his incredible spirit could not be broken.

H.H. Panchen Lama was another great practitioner of Gyelchen Dorje Shugden. A Lama of his attainments and caliber practicing Dorje Shugden and having a chapel in his own Tashilunpo Monastery to this great protector which is active today cannot be mistaken. Dorje Shugden's practice is held in high esteem by highly attained lamas of the highest rank such as Panchen lama. Pujas to Dorje Shugden are carried out in Tashi lunpo Monastery everyday until now.  The previous Panchen lamas have been the tutors to the previous Dalai Lamas many times. The Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama have had lama disciple relationships for many lifetimes.

Here H.E. Gangchen Rinpoche is pictured with Panchen Rinpoche. Gangchen Rinpoche's personal Monastery is very nearby Tashi lunpo in Shigatse. Gangchen Rinpoche is a great disciple of Panchen lama and they were very close. They would offer golden drink (serkym) to Dorje Shugden together for the welfare of practitioners. Gangchen Rinpoche himself comes from a long illustrious line of incarnations stemming from Mahasiddha Darikapa in India.

Gangchen Rinpoche has developed a set of incredible healing techniques that are very appropriate for modern times. The techniques use the four elements of the body, 5 chakras, light, chanting, hand and body mudras, the kalacakra tantra and visualizations on the 5 dhayani Buddhas. They are very effective to bring balance to the body, restore vigor, enhance meditations, heal sicknesses, heal depression, overcome anxiety and fear. Many people have attested to it and its popularity has grown tremendously among Rinpoche's followers in Europe, South America and Asia. Can see on Gangchen Rinpoche's website. Fantastic videos available.  The incredible part is that prior to Rinpoche revealing the practices to his students, he consulted Dorje Shugden directly via the oracle. Dorje Shugden came in his peaceful form and spoke to Gangchen Rinpoche in the form of Dulzin. Dulzin said to proliferate this ancient healing technique. He was pleased and encouraged this practice. Lama Gangchen Rinpoche has tirelessly taught this practice many times. It is on video and in books. Very powerful, easy, adaptable and yet based on the ancient healing tantras of Tibet. Gangchen Rinpoche also produces very powerful blessing pills one can soak in water to drink or insert into creams to rub on affected areas that are very efficacious in healing. Very much sought after by Tibetans. Rinpoche has the kalacakra festival yearly also in his beautiful Northern retreat centre in Italy. In this festival yearly he passes down ancient oral transmissions, teachings and commentaries on Kalacakra and related. In Rinpoche's personal Monastery Kalacakra is highly esteemed. We are very fortunate that HE Gangchen Rinpoche continues to teach, travel and proliferate the dharma.

Here we have the photo uploaded in high quality so you may print out and keep on your shrines. May HH Panchen Rinpoche and the Mahasiddha Gangchen Rinpoche bless you always.

His Eminence Gangchen Tulku Rinpoche has very strong connections to HH Panchen Rinpoche. He is the reincarnation of the second Abbot (throne holder Panchen Zangpo Tashi 1410-1478) of Panchen Rinpoche's personal Monastery Tashi Lunpo in Shigatse. Here is a picture of Gangchen Rinpoche in front of the the stupa containing the relics of Zangpo Tashi housed in Tashi Lunpo. A stupa with relics of his Gangchen Rinpoche's own predecessor.

H.E. Gangchen Rinpoche together with H.H. Kyabje Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche inviting the Buddha's relics to be viewed in Switzerland. Many ambassadors, United Nations representatives and representatives of different schools of Buddhism were there also.  March 1, 2003.

This is Dorje Shugden via the oracle Choyang Kuten-la who has since passed away.  The picture was taken in Trokhang Dechen Chog, the temple built for Dorje Shugden in Gaden Monastery in Mundgod, South India.

This is Setrapa via the oracle Choyang Kunten-la on the occasion of offering new garments which he is wearing.  The picture was taken in the old temple of Gaden Shartse where the throne was placed on the west wall of the Temple (the direction of Amitabha Buddha.)  You can see the current Kuten, Tenzin Choephel, on the right hand side of the image, behind the oracle.  He was an assistant at the time.  The other monk is Phukhang Geshe Lobsang Dechen who was the main attendant to Choyang Kunten-la for the duration of his life, and who's service was offered by Gaden Shartse.

Ah... the good old days.

The figures on each sides looks like past incarnations.

But what are the figures in the central line? Also past lives or lineage masters?

TK, you can read the script no?

Please please please,

could we have the photo in much higher resolution? I can see every one has a name, even his monks and the ferocious ten young fighters. Where does this beautiful tangka come from? Thank you very much for it!

I don't think it's the lineage of profound view, etc.

It start with Manjushri because manjushri is said the be the first incarnation of DS. Then, naked smeared with ashes, you have indian mahasiddhas, like Virupa (also a past incarnation), etc.

John - It is precisely because the Dalai Lama believes in such medieval superstition that he is afraid of Dorje Shugden. Believing that a deity would happily kill 5000 innocent people just to rescue one person from prison is frankly, scary. How can anyone live with that and claim they are buddhist?

Dear Nigel,

John is not a member of the website and this matter was already dealt with months ago in this Forum.

In all religions and even outside religions there are superstitious people.
