The Dalai Lama Cables: No Noble Peace – Part 1
emptymountains – ABC Radio National’s interview with Kelsang Pema, the international spokesperson for the Western Shugden Society. This interview by Stephen Crittenden was aired on 11 June 2008 on The Religion Report. The full transcript is available at abc.net.au
Due to the ban the Dalai Lama has enforced, Dorje Shugden practitioners may not associate with non-Dorje Shugden practitioners in any way, shape or form. A large group of monks wishing to continue their practice of Dorje Shugden, had to separate from Sera Monastery in order to carry out this directive. They have formally started a new monastery called Serpom Norling Monastery nearby. They currently have many qualified Geshes and altogether 500 monks.
The Ganden Tripa or Gaden Tripa is regarded as the spiritual leader of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. This news about the Ganden Tripa was posted today by a TK on the dorjeshugden.com forum. I’ve edited this post for length and clarity.
“The term of office for the current Ganden Tripa has finished. He has successfully finished his term. He now has the title of His Holiness Ganden Trisur Rinpoche Lungri Namgyal. He primarily resides in France although he has a ladrang in Ganden Shartse, Nepal and Yangthing, Tibet.
Ganden Trisur Rinpoche belongs to the Dokhang Khangtsen house of Ganden Shartse Monastery formerly. He studied and received his Geshe degree in Ganden Shartse and later he became the Ganden Tripa.
Ganden Trisur Rinpoche
Ganden Trisur Rinpoche has never journeyed to Ganden Shartse Monastery to swear in or take the oath to forsake Dorje Shugden. In a stunning turn around, he has officially left Gaden Shartse Monastery and joined Shar Gaden Monastery. Ganden Trisur’s assistant was sent to speak with the current Gaden Shartse Abbot about him leaving Shartse Monastery.
Ganden Trisur’s throne in Shartse will remain although he has left the monastery completely. HH Ganden Trisur Rinpoche was a student of Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang.
This eventful move will embarrass the Tibetan Government in exile and also teach them a lesson. Not everyone is afraid of them and there are high ranking lamas who will stand up for what they believe in. With time, more and more monks will defect to Shar Gaden Monastery and remain loyal to their lineage, lamas, and practices.
In Sera, Gaden, Drepung, Tashilungpo, Gyuto and Gyurme Monasteries take a “fake oath”, as they put it, to temporarily quiet down the Tibetan Government in Exile and their unjust/undemocratic persecution of Dorje Shugden devotees.
They stand up in front of the congregation (fearing expulsion from the monastery) and read the words that ‘swear’ they abandon Dorje Shugden and will not be associated with Dorje Shugden devotees in any manner. The monks say they just read the words and do not feel anything from their heart. It is pure persecution. Many monks don’t dare to speak out against the Tibetan Government, even though they are opposed to the ban. Ganden Trisur’s recent move will give strength to many who have been persecuted up until now.”
This version a little longer, but I think the additional clips tell the story more clearly. My hopes are that this video will give a glimpse of the truth about the Dalai Lama to people who don’t have time to watch some of the longer documentaries about the controversy.
