Four Days of Purification with H.E. Daknak Rinpoche in Taiwan

In the fantasy world, we have superheroes, like Spiderman, who capture the minds of countless children everywhere with their superhuman powers and abilities. But in Tibetan Buddhism, we have super erudite and highly attained Lamas who attract thousands of followers, both ordained and lay, because of their selflessness and great compassion to benefit all beings. One such highly revered lama is H.E. the 14th Daknak Rinpoche who has thousands of followers in Tibet and Taiwan.

H.E. Daknak Rinpoche is highly respected in Taiwan, a country where Tibetan Buddhism is rare and less popular compared to the mainstream Mahayana Buddhist tradition. However, Daknak Rinpoche’s great dedication and hard work in spreading the Gelug lineage in this region eventually led to the founding of the Daknak Genden Lhundup Monastery in Taiwan.

Today, H.E. Daknak Rinpoche travels frequently between Taiwan and Tibet, and also to other countries around the world to expound the great teachings of Lama Tsongkapa and the protector Dorje Shugden. Most recently, Daknak Rinpoche personally presided over a four-day puja: a one-day Yamantaka peaceful Fire Puja and a three-day Medicine Buddha Puja.

Fire pujas are an excellent way to pacify the results of our unwholesome actions, and to clear away obstacles and challenges. In addition, the Medicine Buddha puja is a popular practice especially within Asian communities as it promotes healing and longevity.

Dedication cards were produced for both pujas, a common practice in Chinese temples across Asia where sponsors write dedications for themselves or their loved ones. It is wonderful to see aspects of local culture infused with Tibetan Buddhism in Daknak Rinpoche’s monastery.

We at DorjeShugden.com rejoice to receive such wonderful news about one of the most respected Dorje Shugden lamas of our time and we look forward to hearing more great news of H.E. Daknak Rinpoche and other great masters that in their immense compassion, selflessness and skilful means, have captured the minds of all they meet.

Always a pleasure to see pictures of Daknak Rinpoche, he reminds me a lot of the quality of perseverance and effortlessly teaching the buddha dharma and we always see videos of this great lama continuously teaching the Lamrim. One notices that Daknak Rinpoche moves in and out of the Tibet freely, and that the Chinese Government understand that this lama operates in Tibetan and benefit Tibetans. Such are the kind of compassionate personality and disposition that China would most likely would want to deal with.

Not to ask the lamas to engage in politics or negotiating with the Chinese, but Daknak Rinpoche temperament and attributes are the sorts that the China would want to deal with, people who care, compassionate, learned who have genuine care for the Tibetans. Not the CTA who would split their people, rob the sangha of its properties and would go as far as exacting violence on monks and lay people. I doubt CTA has any interest on the Tibetan apart from themselves. Sad but true.
