Tritul Rinpoche’s Temple in New Zealand

In 1989, H.E. Serkong Tritul Rinpoche of Ganden Jangtse Monastery began to travel between Tibet and other countries on a teaching tour. By 1992, he was flying between Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia and China to give teachings.

In 1999, Rinpoche visited New Zealand. From there, the New Zealand Kadampa Buddhist Society came into being, which strives to bring Atisha’s pure lineage to this new land.

Since its establishment, Tritul Rinpoche has given numerous empowerments and encouraged many Dharma activities at this center. He also assigned various teachers educated in Taiwan to administer this center.

In March 2008, the official opening of the new temple signaled that Atisha’s pure lineage had firmly begun to take root in New Zealand.

  1. This is wonderful to see that Dorje Shugden practitioners setting up temples/monastery/centers around the world. May Dorje Shugden’s practice be well established every where and may Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings prevails and flourish everywhere.

  2. Attention:
    Before this, Tritul Rinpoche is a Gelugpa’s guru, so he did not give up Shugden.
    But Since 2008.01.01, His Holiness Tritul Rinpoche already recover the Atisha’s Kadhampa. Tritul Rinpoche said that when Atisha brought his teaching to tibet, when the beginning of Kadhampa on 1042, no Shugden at that time, so the kadhampa that he recover have no Dorje Shugden anymore since the day the recover Atisha’s Kadhampa.
    [Shugden is protector of Gelugpa, but no Kadhampa, because Atisha does not pratice Shugden, so Shugden no exist in Kadhampa, even today]

    Prove: (Youtube, the disclaimer of Tritul Rinpoche]

  3. From the outside, it looks like an ordinary house; inside it is a real temple, with altars and Buddha statues. Above the door, it clearly says “Kadampa Buddhist Society”. So is Dorje Shugden practiced here? In the video showing the opening ceremony in 2008, there is a real Maori welcome. In the audience, one can see people from different ethnic backgrounds listening to the prayers. There is also a performance by musicians and singing of a Buddhist song. This shows that there is a blend of religion and local culture and this is important to bring people to the Dharma.

  4. It’s so beautiful to see that people from different ethnic backgrounds are being blessed by Dorje Shugden’s practice. May Dorje Shugden’s practice spread even more and may it’s ban be released so that many others would have a chance to be blessed by it, alongside with the great teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa.

  5. It’s wonderful to know that H.E. Serkong Tritul Rinpoche of Ganden Jangtse Monastery managed to inspire the founding of a dharma centre by just visiting a place such as New Zealand. New Zealand must be a very blessed place for being able to start a dharma centre so easily.

    And, recently New Zealand became the first country to declare all animal as sentient beings. This effectively makes animal testing illegal. Hopefully this will be enforced to prevent cruelty to animals – practice of kindness and compassion.

    Thank you for the sharing and the various videos of the activities at the centre.

Contemplate This

.…Instead of turning away people who practise Dorje Shugden, we should be kind to them. Give them logic and wisdom without fear, then in time they give up the ‘wrong’ practice. Actually Shugden practitioners are not doing anything wrong. But hypothetically, if they are, wouldn’t it be more Buddhistic to be accepting? So those who have views against Dorje Shugden should contemplate this. Those practicing Dorje Shugden should forbear with extreme patience, fortitude and keep your commitments. The time will come as predicted that Dorje Shugden’s practice and it’s terrific quick benefits will be embraced by the world and it will be a practice of many beings.
