Are Dalai Lama’s critics backed by China?

It has been 12 years since I first heard Dorje Shugden’s name. Under normal circumstances it’s best not to talk about protectors openly. This is because the sanctity and potency of the protectors would be compromised, and you don’t really want their assistance to wane. Best kept in silence, they serve as fuel on the…

The Dalai Lama Accepts Failure of His Approach regarding Tibet

The Dalai Lama accepts failure of his approach to getting independence of Tibet for the last 50 years. Since he is able to admit failure for a whole nation’s hopes, in time perhaps he would also state he was ‘wrong’ in the ban against Dorje Shugden. This is a good indication that Dalai Lama is…

Huge Dorje Shugden statue of Tseri Sagong Monastery in Chamdo, Tibet

In Kham, Tibet, more Tulkus/Geshes/Lamas are practicing Dorje Shugden and making the practice grow. It is growing more than it ever existed before.

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.
