Shar Gaden Monastery – The Grand Opening Ceremony

As many of you are aware, over 500 monks were forced to leave their beloved home Gaden Shartse Monastery in South India. The Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in Exile forced all the monasteries to take an oath to abandon all practices of Dorje Shugden. If they refused, they were forced to leave the monastery for good. So these 500 monks decided to remain true to their spiritual convictions and left Gaden Shartse Monastery in Mundgod, India.

Nearby, they re-established Shar Gaden Monastery as a place to have freedom of worship. Help, support, donations and care has been pouring in from all parts of the world. They now have a grand prayer hall, monk quarters, pujas, active Geshe Study program. Many monks from other Monasteries who refuse to abandon Dorje Shugden have also joined Shar Gaden Monastery. Shar Gaden has been working very hard in preparing huge statues for their prayer hall, cleaning, painting, extending buildings, etc. This video gives us an opportunity to rejoice that these Shugden practitioner can now practice their religion freely in their own monastery.

Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden Blog: Breaking News From India  

Ganden Lachi and Shartse monasteries are situated at Mundgod in South India. In both these monasteries stands a throne for Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the spiritual master of the Dalai Lama.

Ganden Lachi and Shartse monasteries were threatened: “You must remove these thrones or else we will not hold the great prayer festival together in Drepung monastery.”
It is quite certain that the thrones will be removed forever from the monasteries in order to appease the Tibetan Government in exile and the Dalai Lama.
