[From H.E. Tsem Rinpoche]

(Part 1 of 3)
Wherever I go, for years I have been carrying cans/bags of dog food in my car. I always have food in my car for them. I also carry water and paper/plastic plates to place the food on and give them a drink.

24 Jun 17, 03:48 PM
Pastor Shin: (Part 2 of 3)
When I see hungry dogs, I do my best to feed them and give them food. Some see the food and wait nearby till I go away and eat. Some run away immediately. Some will eat later. Some come very nearby and eat immediately. When I see them, I recite mantras for them to hear. Usually Manjushri, Medicine Buddha and or Dorje Shugden mantras to plant dharma seeds in them for future lives. Depending on how scared they are because of the abuse they have been getting they will come near, go away or wait. Poor dogs. It's hard to be on the streets in the heat, rain and being kicked by others always and looking for food daily. 😪The abuses and hurt the street dogs endure nearly daily from people is incredible.
24 Jun 17, 03:47 PM
Pastor Shin: (Part 3 of 3)
When I see female dogs with swollen breasts, I do my best to feed them even more because I know they have puppies nearby hidden usually and she needs to feed them. It's hard to see animals suffer and it is my small way to bring some relief to them whenever I can.

I use to go with groups of friends to different areas where I know there are very hungry dogs hiding or foraging for food like garbage dumps and feed them. But most of the time I just stop wherever I see them when I can.

Today Pastor Seng Piow fed a starving skinny mother doggie with food. She was able to eat up four cans of food in one go! She was that hungry. Good for her! She can produce some milk for her puppies today.😊

Be kind to animals always. Never hurt them or eat them. We pray to help all sentient beings in our prayers and that must include animals too. Be kind to everyone we meet as much as we can. It's a better way to live.

Sofi: Thank you Rinpoche, Valentina for moderating and everyone here.
24 Jun 17, 12:29 PM
Sofi: A6 : Special qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal are how he valued his Guru Devotion with courage to continue his practice of Dorje Shugden and to hold the seat of Gaden Tripa with stainless reputation. As the seat of Gaden Tripa is by qualifications instead of reincarnation, Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal is certainly an authority to look to for authentic practice of the Dharma.

valentina_moderator: Thank you Rinpoche and everyone who have joined today's blog chat - don't forget to do your dedication
24 Jun 17, 12:25 PM
Uncle Eddie: Q6-Ans: That Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal is truly said to be the most qualified Teacher alive today, having spread the teachings the World over to France, Switzerland, Italy, America, China, Taiwan and as far as Singapore! Today His Holiness is 90 years old , but still vibrant, strong, strong and fine looking. A powerful master of Sutra and Tantra, he was said to have pre-examined Dorje Shogden and found him very blessed as "Manjusri". That is why he still continues to practice Dorje Shugden.without doubts!
24 Jun 17, 12:24 PM
Pastor Shin: Although earlier in the discussion, it was said that the position of Gaden Tripa is based on meritocracy, these days, it is not really based on that alone, but also whether or not you fall in line with the Tibetan Government’s policies - that you DO NOT practice Dorje Shugden. :zonked:

valentina_moderator: 6.What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special?


I find that his loyalty and devotion to his Dharma and Dorje Shugden practice as very special. He clearly valued his practice more than politics. His courage in moving to Shar Gaden to maintain his Dorje Shugden practice is very inspiring. I hope his holiness’s decision and openness to maintain his practice will continue to inspire present-day and future practitioners.
24 Jun 17, 12:23 PM
valentina_moderator: I hope so too Soon Huat :)
24 Jun 17, 12:23 PM
1Soon Huat: @Valentina, Thank You, I sincerely hope those who anti- Dorje Shugden practice and harmed others severely due to political benefit will wake up and back to pure Dharma path. I do worry they will suffer of their negative karma in future --->@Soon Huat - that is true - one of the great examples that the Gaden Trisur showed us is although he has been appointed to a very high position, he still maintain pure devotion and faith to his teachers. His Dorje Shugden practice is the proof of this.
24 Jun 17, 12:23 PM
Jenn_Yuen: 6.What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special? Answer : His Holiness unwavering devotion to his teachers and Dorje Shugden. His courage to join Shar Gaden immediate after his term as Gaden Tripa and determination not to give up his practice.
24 Jun 17, 12:21 PM
Pastor Shin: j6.What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special?
He is staunchly loyal towards H.H. Trijang Rinpoche. While many in position take a fake oath of abandoning the Dorje Shugden practice, Trisur Rinpoche joined Shar Gaden. His move to Shar Gaden gave much strength, hope and inspiration to all the practitioners of Dorje Shugden, and to let the Tibetan leadership know that he will stand up for his belief and is loyal to his Guru and practice.
24 Jun 17, 12:20 PM
Joy: Thank you Rinpoche, Valentina and blog chatters for an interesting blog chat!
24 Jun 17, 12:20 PM
Pastor David Lai: 6.What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special? - Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal has special courage to come out and did so while preserving the dignity of his office. I think this special courage is rare to be able to come out in the fact of the Shugden issue.
24 Jun 17, 12:20 PM
Beatrix: 6.What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special? Answer: His strong guru devotion towards his guru and his loyalty towards his Dharma protector, Dorje Shugden. While others may have have given up on Dorje Shugden, his faith has helped him to go through all the hardships he faced. Not everyone is as courageous and loyal as he is.
24 Jun 17, 12:20 PM
Pastor Niral Patel: 6.What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special? ANS: I consider his special qualities to be his unwavering devotion to his lamas, which has been stated is the root of all attainments, his respect and faith in the tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa and the position of Gaden Tripa, his scholarly ability, his courage, and his conviction in doing what is right.
24 Jun 17, 12:19 PM
valentina_moderator: @Soon Huat - that is true - one of the great examples that the Gaden Trisur showed us is although he has been appointed to a very high position, he still maintain pure devotion and faith to his teachers. His Dorje Shugden practice is the proof of this.
24 Jun 17, 12:19 PM
Pastor Antoinette: 6.What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special?

It is said that those who are aware of his works and deeds find it impossible to utter one single negativity about him. He is an example for someone ordinary can become extraordinary through his focus on his practice. After holding the position as Gaden Tripa, he immediately left for Shar Gaden to show that he is holding his Guru Devotion very firm and never gave up his Dorje Shugden practice.
24 Jun 17, 12:17 PM
Joy: 6.What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special?
His loyalty to his Guru and Dharma Protector. His steadfastness. His wisdom, courage and kindness to lead many who were afraid out as well. By His example we know what is the truth and that the ban is clearly illogical and political. He gave light to many Shugden practitioners and an example to remain loyal and to be devoted to their Guru.
24 Jun 17, 12:16 PM
valentina_moderator: @Hue - I have the same wish - His Holiness the Gaden Trisur gives us strength, inspiration and much-needed courage to stand up and say there is nothing wrong with Dorje Shugden’s practice and we will continue on. From the bottom of my heart and the depths of my being, I fold my hands and place my head on His Holiness the Gaden Trisur’s lotus feet that he will remain for a long time with us, bless us and continuously bestow teachings as he is Lama Tsongkhapa on earth.
24 Jun 17, 12:15 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: QUESTION: What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special? ANSWER: faith in his lamas, courage under adversity (must not have been easy to keep his practice secret), and the skill of a politician combined with scholarship, attainments and compassion (just like HH Trijang Rinpoche who was known to be very diplomatic and taught His Holiness the Dalai Lama the art of politics).
24 Jun 17, 12:15 PM
1Soon Huat: 6.What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special?
Unswerving faith to practice of Dorje Shugden which has been passed down by His Guru. Eventhough, He has been throne with such a high ranked position, Gaden Tripa.
24 Jun 17, 12:15 PM
Hue: His Holiness the Gaden Trisur gives us strength, inspiration and much-needed courage to stand up and say there is nothing wrong with Dorje Shugden’s practice and we will continue on.

24 Jun 17, 12:15 PM
valentina_moderator: @Pastor Antoinette - Yes that is correct - the Gaden Tripa office is the supreme head of all the Gelug monasteries, sangha and millions of practitioners around the world. That is why the position is very important.
24 Jun 17, 12:15 PM
Pastor Adeline: Gaden Trisur Rinpoche realised the importance of the role, so he waited for the term to end to avoid acting in a manner that would stain the reputation of Gaden Tripa’s position. Without the role, he is being attacking personally as an ordinary monk, not as a Gaden Tripa to protect the sacred role.
24 Jun 17, 12:13 PM
valentina_moderator: 6.What qualities of Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal that you consider as special?
24 Jun 17, 12:13 PM
Pastor Jean Ai: That goes for all previously-Dorje Shugden practising organisations who started out with Dorje Shugden, and whose lamas passed as Dorje Shugden practitioners. They prostrate every day to Shugden lamas and take refuge in them during their sadhana...weird
24 Jun 17, 12:13 PM
Pastor Antoinette: 1.What does the office of Gaden Tripa represent? Please provide examples about the significance of the Gaden Tripa position?

The Gaden Tripa is the supreme head of all the Gelug monasteries, sangha and practitioners throughout the world.
24 Jun 17, 12:13 PM
valentina_moderator: Last question of the day...

valentina_moderator: 5.Why did Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal wait until he finished his term as Gaden Tripa before revealing his Dorje Shugden practice? Why does Gaden Shartse still maintain his throne although he has left the monastery?


Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal waited until he finished his tenure as the Gaden Tripa before revealing his Dorje Shugden practice because he realized the preciousness of his position refused to act in a way that would stain the reputation of the office he held. Therefore, he waited until he became an ‘ordinary’ monk again before revealing his Dorje Shugden practice so that any attacks would be personal to him, and not to the position. These actions make it clear that His Holiness is without ego, valuing Dharma above politics.

Although His Holiness the Gaden Trisur has left Gaden Shartse, his throne will remain there because otherwise the link with this important lama, which is one of the lineage masters, will be severed.

Pastor Jean Ai: @Valentina - it's called irony and being forced to do things you don't really believe in (i.e. Uphold the ban) haha they keep Trijang Rinpoche's throne and he practised Dorje Shugden. They still make three prostrations to Zong Rinpoche's stupa and he passed as a Dorje Shugden lama. Let's not mention Trijang Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche's stupas in Shartse...we can strike a wider example - everyone in FPMT deeply respects Lama Yeshe, as they should, but Lama

24 Jun 17, 12:10 PM
valentina_moderator: That is true Soon Huat - the fact that Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal hid his practice while he was still in the Gaden Tripa position - is a proof to us that not all senior lamas in the Gelug monasteries have given up their Dorje Shugden practice.
24 Jun 17, 12:10 PM
Sharon Ong: @Valentina, blessings from the lineage masters would help our practice to flourish. Also severing links to these masters whose incarnations have direct links to Shakyamuni himself (eg Trijang Rinpoche being Shakyamuni chariot driver, Chandra) would be like "deleting" (for lack of a better word) that part of Gelug history.

Isn't it contradictory with their declaration that Dorje Shugden practice is bad?

The Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal did not reveal that he practices Dorje Shugden because of his position as Gaden Tripa and he did not want to put this position into a bad light. It is said that His Holiness never gave cause for criticism or doubt against him. He waited so that any attacks against his Dorje Shugden practice would be personal to him and not towards his position as Gaden Tripa. If his throne would be removed because of his Dorje Shugden practice, the link with the high lamas, such as His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche, will be severed.

Just like what a true spiritual leader would do. Gaden Shartse still maintained his throne although he has left the monastery, just as how HH Trijang Rinpoche's throne is maintained, as removing the their thrones would be severing links to these lineage masters and without these links, the blessings from all the lineage masters will just stop there.

Pastor Jean Ai: QUESTION: Why did Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal wait until he finished his term as Gaden Tripa before revealing his Dorje Shugden practice? Why does Gaden Shartse still maintain his throne although he has left the monastery? ANSWER: He didn't want the throne of Gaden Tripa to be attacked. Also, maybe an element of it was about not disrespecting His Holiness the Dalai Lama by revealing he does Dorje Shugden and thus having people doubt His Holiness the Dalai Lama's choices and therefore create bad karma.

Because His Holiness joined Shar Gaden Monastery, his private household and office (Ladrang) joined too. This Ladrang is located in Gaden Shartse, and conveniently borders Shar Gaden Monastery, with just one wall separating the two locations. When Shar Gaden Monastery held a series of teachings in 2009/2010, all of Trisur Ladrang’s students attend although they had not yet joined Shar Gaden
24 Jun 17, 11:58 AM
Pastor Shin: @Choong - Not so much of that, but to show that he really respects the position in a Dharmic way. His assistant was sent to speak with the Gaden Shartse abbot at that time to inform him that His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche was leaving Gaden Shartse Monastery to join Shar Gaden.
24 Jun 17, 11:58 AM

Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal left Gaden Shartse Monastery because he is review himself as practitioner of Dorje Shugden and he would want to continue to practice Dorje Shugden.
His departure was surprise, because His Holiness is a very senior Lama within the Gelug hierarchy. Being a former and living throne-holder of the Gelug lineage, His Holiness even ranks above the current Gaden Tripa since he is senior in order of ascension.
24 Jun 17, 11:57 AM
Pastor Antoinette: 2.What is unique about the Gaden Tripa position?

The Gaden Tripa is the head of the Gelug lineagein Tibetan Buddhism and as such he is the head of the many Gelug monasteries. His appointment is based on merits and not based on birth, position or rank. Only study, practice and holding of the vows will make it possible to gain this holy position.

valentina_moderator: 4.Why did the Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal left Gaden Shartse Monastery? Why was his departure surprising?


His Holiness Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal left Gaden Shartse to join Shar Gaden Monastery because the situation at Gaden Shartse Monastery is no longer conducive for Dorje Shugden practitioner, and His Holiness would like to retain his Dorje Shugden practice.

The Gaden Trisur’s departure from Gaden Shartse was surprising because His Holiness is a very senior and respected Lama within the Gelug hierarchy. As a former and living throne-holder of the Gelug lineage, His Holiness even ranks above the current Gaden Tripa because he is senior in order of ascension. In addition, contrary to the claim of the Tibetan leadership, not ALL lamas and ALL Gaden Tripa are in agreement with the ban on Dorje Shugden.

24 Jun 17, 11:52 AM
Pastor Jean Ai: @Choong - hehehe true that. It's sad because unlike other schools and traditions, His Holiness's reputation as the leader of the lineage is totally overshadowed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama's office. His Holiness the Dalai Lama is holy, but His Holiness the Gaden Tripa was also deserving of greater recognition. But it's hard to do that when you're only in office for such a short period, and not in office for a lifetime (or in the Karmapa's case, successive lifetimes)

Pastor Antoinette: 3. Please describe the Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal’s reputation within the Gelug lineage holders

He is one of the most qualified Buddhist teacher alive today and has dedicated his whole life to the propagation of the holy Buddhadharma. His renown is that he is a pure monk who held his vows vell and is an erudite scholar, direct in his speech and with a no-nonsense attitude. He is also know for being incredibly kind.
24 Jun 17, 11:52 AM
valentina_moderator: Dear Choong, the monasteries have no choice but to give up their practice of Dorje Shugden at least on the surface due to the repressive political environment imposed by the Tibetan leadership in exile. In Gaden alone, monks were required to swear that they do not practice Dorje Shugden - This is why a senior courageous Lama like Gaden Trisur who stay true to his Dorje Shugden practice becomes the source of inspiration and hope to other practitioners like us
24 Jun 17, 11:51 AM
Choong: A4. OK, so it was surprising to the monks because someone like the Gaden Trisur would "dare" disobey HH Dalai Lama's instructions.
24 Jun 17, 11:50 AM
Adrian Chow: 4. As the Gaden Tripa, Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal of stainless repute never journeyed back to Gaden Shartse Monastery to swear in or take an oath that he gave up Dorje Shugden. Upon the completion of his term as the Gaden Tripa, in January 2010, His Holiness officially left Gaden Shartse Monastery. He joined Shar Gaden Monastery immediately, in a move echoing those of other elite lamas such as His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche and His Eminence Domo Geshe Rinpoche. This show that His Holiness have never given up the practice of Dorje Shugden which i believed is given to him by his guru, the previous Trijang Rinpoche, in which also shown that he is a monk who holds his vows and practices guru devotion.

It was surprising because he was the Gaden Tripa and he did not express his disagreement about the Dorje Shugden ban. He kept quiet because of his high position as Gaden Tripa. So after his 7 years as Gaden Tripa he could express that he is a Dorje Shugden practitioner and go to Shar Ganden.

No one knew that he had been practicing Dorje Shugden. It was surprising because he was a high lama within the Gelug lineage, and ranks even above the Gaden Tripa post, as he is more senior in terms of accession to the throne. During his tenure, he never one said anything against HH Dalai Lama for implementing the ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden.
24 Jun 17, 11:46 AM
Choong: A4. Actually I don't find it surprising that Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal left Gaden Shartse in the face of the ban on Dorje Shugden who is none other that the protector of the Emptiness teachings of the Buddha as expoused by Je Tsongkhapa. As he was the holder of Lama Tsongkhapa's throne on earth, why was he not consulted? Why did the the monasteries act unilaterally?

HHactions demonstrate that, contrary to the claims of the Tibetan leadership, NOT ALL lamas and ALL Gaden Tripas are in agreement with the ban on Dorje Shugden. This actually demonstrate HH is an unwavering practitioner of Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition, which includes the practice of Dorje Shugden. Having represented Lama Tsongkhapa on earth for seven years, HH’ decisions (whether about Dorje Shugden or otherwise) can be trusted. He firmly believes that simply because something is a rule, does not mean it has to be followed unless it brings benefit and it arises from logic. Otherwise, HH will speak up.

paul yap: 4.Why did the Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal left Gaden Shartse Monastery? Why was his departure surprising?

• He was unhappy with the Dorje Shugden ban, but kept quiet all this time, and refused to go to swear in at Gaden Shartse Monastery. He wanted to speak out, but he thought about the sanctified position of Gaden Tripa, so he thought it would be better for him to finish his term, and speak up when he was an ‘ordinary’ monk again with no position. Then, if anyone ‘attacked’ him, it would just involve him as an individual, and no harm would come to the position and create undue and unnecessary problems for the Gelugpas on the whole.
• His Holiness the Gaden Trisur’s departure from Gaden Shartse was a surprising development as His Holiness is a very senior Lama within the Gelug hierarchy.

I hope in the future, there will be more erudite scholars like him since we need the inspiration very much.

Beatrix: 4.Why did the Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal left Gaden Shartse Monastery? Why was his departure surprising? Answer: Because as the Gaden Tripa, he could not go back to Gaden Shartse Monastery to swear in or take an oath that he gave up Dorje Shugden. His Holiness the Gaden Trisur’s departure from Gaden Shartse was a surprising development as His Holiness is a very senior Lama within the Gelug hierarchy. Being a former and living throne-holder of the Gelug lineage, His Holiness even ranks above the current Gaden Tripa since he is senior in order of ascension.
24 Jun 17, 11:44 AM
Pastor Jean Ai: QUESTION: Why did the Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal left Gaden Shartse Monastery? Why was his departure surprising? ANSWER: His Holiness left to join Shar Gaden. It was surprising because no one realised or knew he'd been practising Dorje Shugden during his entire time in office. Even that is a reflection of how unstained his reputation is; no one ever suspected him or ANYTHING, including practising Dorje Shugden. What's interesting also is that although he quietly maintained his practice during his time in office, he never once disparaged either the practice or His Holiness the Dalai Lama, like so many do. And the other interesting thing is nothing bad happened to him while he was in office, which they say is supposed to happen to Dorje Shugden practitioners hehe TL;DR - he left for Shar Gaden to practise Dorje Shugden, and no one knew he'd been practising all along.

24 Jun 17, 11:42 AM
Hue: His Holiness the Gaden Trisur’s actions demonstrate that, contrary to the claims of the Tibetan leadership, not ALL lamas and ALL Gaden Tripas are in agreement with the ban on Dorje Shugden. They in fact demonstrate that His Holiness is an unwavering practitioner of Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition, which includes the practice of Dorje Shugden.

• In this community, Geshe Lungrik Namgyal (as he was known before ascending to the Gaden throne) achieved renown as a pure monk who held his vows well.
• He is a ‘no nonsense’ lama. Yes is yes, and no is no.
• He is very direct, open and straightforward.
• He is staunchly loyal towards H.H. Trijang Rinpoche.
• He will not go along with the rules just because they are rules. He will think about it and speak up if necessary. He looks strict, but actually he is direct.
• He was unhappy with the Dorje Shugden ban, but kept quiet all this time, and refused to go to swear in at Gaden Shartse Monastery. He wanted to speak out, but he thought about the sanctified position of Gaden Tripa, so he thought it would be better for him to finish his term, and speak up when he was an ‘ordinary’ monk again with no position. Then, if anyone ‘attacked’ him, it would just involve him as an individual, a

The Gaden Tripa position is unique because unlike other lineages within Tibetan Buddhism, it is an appointed office, and it is not based on birth, position, or ranks.

Anyone can end up on this throne.

24 Jun 17, 11:15 AM
valentina_moderator: Thank you Uncle Eddie for answering question no. 2.. that is correct that Gaden Tripa is an appointed position and everybody, even those who came from the humblest background can become the Gaden Tripa by the power of his practice.
24 Jun 17, 11:15 AM
Hue: unique about the position of the Gaden Tripa is that it is an appointed office, and not a reincarnation lineage. This means the office is highly meritocratic, and appointment to the role is not reliant on birth, position or rank. It is instead reliant on study, practice, the holding of vows and therefore the level of respect a practitioner gains as a result of doing all of this perfectly. Thus anybody, even an ordinary monk, can ascend to the throne of the Gaden Tripa and through the power of his practice, become able to influence millions of scholars and practitioners on the Buddhist path.

Choong: @Soon Huat, however, the 1st Dalai Lama was a student of Je Tsongkhapa

Uncle Eddie: Q1-Ans: The position of Gaden Tripa represent the head of Gaden for 7 years. It is an appointed position and not a reincarnation lineage, gained upon the result of and based on reliance on study, practice, holding vows and therefore gained as upon a result of ability to perform all roles perfectly, Such role and practice become able to influence millions of scholars and practitioners on the Buddhist path.

valentina_moderator: 2.What is unique about the Gaden Tripa position?
24 Jun 17, 11:13 AM
valentina_moderator: 1.What does the office of Gaden Tripa represent? Please provide examples about the significance of the Gaden Tripa position?
[br

The office of Gaden Tripa represents the seat of Lama Tsongkhapa on earth. The office of Gaden Tripa is very significant because of the degree of influence and prevalence of the Gelug Tradition.

A good example to illustrate the magnitude and significance of this position is the Gaden Tripa is the supreme head of the Gelug tradition, which includes Gelug monasteries and followers around the world. Within the major Gelug monasteries alone, there are thousands of monks that work to preserve Gelug lineage (e.g., Sera Monastery – 10,000 monks, Drepung Monastery – 6,000 monks, Denma Gonsa Monastery – 5,000 monks, Gaden Monastery – 3,000 monks). The Gaden Tripa has the power to influence millions of scholars and practitioners on the Buddhist path.

The Gaden Tripa is the supreme spiritual head for the Gelug lineage, known as the Throne Holder to the seat of Lama Tsongkhapa. He is considered to be the representative of Lama Tsongkhapa on earth. This is the highest position in the Gelugpa lineage as he represent Lama Tsongkhapa.

valentina_moderator: Yes Choong. Je Tsongkhapa is an enlightened being. During his lifetime, he has cleared many misconception on Buddhism
24 Jun 17, 11:11 AM
Pastor Adeline: Gaden Tripa is the supreme spiritual head of the Gelug lineage and the Throne Holder to the seat of Lama Je Tsongkhapa.

The Gaden Tripa is considered the representative of Lama Tsongkhapa on earth, and is highly significant due to the degree of influence and prevalence of the Gelug tradition. The very first Gaden Tripa was Gyaltsab Je, one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s two heart sons, who held the throne from 1419 to 1431.
24 Jun 17, 11:10 AM
Choong: @Valentina, yes according to the article the 1st Gaden Tripa would be Gyaltsab Je, that is out of respect for Je Tsongkhapa himself who is none other than Vajradhara.
24 Jun 17, 11:10 AM
Hue: Take only the lower portion
24 Jun 17, 11:10 AM
valentina_moderator: Dear Hue - that is correct - the example of the Garden Tripa office significance is the number of monks currently studying and residing within Gelug Monasteries. They are working to preserve and spread the Gelug lineage. :)

Gaden Tripa – Gaden throne holder; Gaden Trisur – Gaden ex-throne holder (Emeritus)

Background

It is commonly believed that His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the Tibetans. Although His Holiness the Dalai Lama is widely respected, this information is in fact inaccurate. In Tibetan Buddhism, the majority of practitioners are adherents of the Gelug tradition and the supreme spiritual head of this lineage is known as the Gaden Tripa.

The Gaden Tripa is the Throne Holder to the seat of Lama Je Tsongkhapa. Considered the representative of Lama Tsongkhapa on earth, the position of the Gaden Tripa is highly significant due to the degree of influence and prevalence of the Gelug tradition. The very first Gaden Tripa was Gyaltsab Je, one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s two heart sons, who held the throne from 1419 to 1431.

To better understand the magnitude and significance of this position, below are some of the many Gelug monasteries that view His Holiness the Gaden Tripa as their supreme head of their lineage, as well as the approximate number of monks that live in some of them:

Gaden Monastery (consisting of 3000 monks)
Drepung Monastery (consisting of 6000 monks)
Sera Monastery (consisting of 10,000 monks)
Gyuto Tantric Monastery (consisting of 500 monks)
Gyumed Tantric Monastery (consisting of 500 monks)
Tashilhunpo Monastery (consisting of 300 monks)
Gaden Sumtseling Monastery (consisting of 700 monks)
Kirti Gompa Monastery (consisting of 600 monks)
Denma Gonsa Monastery (consisting of 5000 monks)
Riwo Choling Monastery Chatreng Sampheling Monastery Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s Monastery Chamdo Gaden Jampaling Monastery Segyud Monastery Samding Monastery Rato Dratsang
Labrang Monastery Kumbum Monastery Namgyal Monastery Dhetsang Monastery Amdo Tashikyil Monastery Thiksey Monastery Alchi Monastery Phelgye Ling Monastery Kumbum Monastery The above list consists only of the larger monasteries, and does not take into account the countless smaller Gelug monasteries throughout Tibet that would also view His Holiness the Gaden Tripa as the supreme leader of their lineage. It too does not take into account the millions of Tibetan Gel

abby foo: Alice,如果我们真相信上师是佛,能视上师为佛,我们自然不会做出操纵上师,勒索或绑架上师情感的行为。
23 Jun 17, 10:05 PM
abby foo: WahYing,非常赞同。别说情感勒索、绑架或操纵自己的上师,即使对朋友这么做,都会伤害友情,就更别说是这样对待引导我们走向解脱之道的大恩上师!~~我们修行里的一切的成就,不管大小,都来自上师和上师的加持,没有上师就没有成就。对将带领你找到内在上师,对讲带领你走向证悟的上师欺瞒或进行情感绑架,等同破坏师徒之间最重要的清净的三昧耶。
23 Jun 17, 10:04 PM
abby foo: Tenzin Dolkar,你说的很好,确实是这样。任何绑勒操纵上师的行为哦,都是三昧耶败坏的行为。对我们的修行非常不利。~~没有清净的三味耶,就没有得到上师的加持,修行就不会得成就
23 Jun 17, 10:03 PM
abby foo: Wylfred,是的,败坏的三昧耶没办法使我们在修行上有所成就。上师的恩德极大,我们不该情感绑架、勒索或操纵自己的上师。我们要真诚以待~~上师是我们修行的成就的根本, 对上师不忠诚, 甚至欺骗上师是完全破坏与上师的三昧耶。 是不会有成就的
23 Jun 17, 10:02 PM
Wah Ying: 问题十:当你绑架、操纵你的上师,或者从你给上师设陷的那一天起,你将得不到你上师的加持。你对这句话的理解是什么?我们修行里的一切的成就,不管大小,都来自上师和上师的加持,没有上师就没有成就。对将带领你找到内在上师,对讲带领你走向证悟的上师欺瞒或进行情感绑架,等同破坏师徒之间最重要的清净的三昧耶。
23 Jun 17, 10:01 PM
abby foo: Jace,你说的没错。关键在于,要对上师坦白、真诚,不要有所隐瞒或藏有心机。~~当我们强逼上师做出我们想要的结果,就算上师做出我们要的决定,也没有加持。一定要完全地由上师决定,并全心遵从,才会得到上师真正的加持。
23 Jun 17, 10:00 PM
Alice: 问题十:当你绑架、操纵你的上师,或者从你给上师设陷的那一天起,你将得不到你上师的加持。你对这句话的理解是什么?答:如果我们对上师没有依止心,或甚至对上师有邪见或误会,我们是很难得到任何成就。要视上师为佛,因为只有上师才能帮助我们达到证悟。

23 Jun 17, 10:00 PM
abby foo: @Han Lin,你的理解没有错。有的弟子利用上师对自己的信任欺瞒上师,为的就是得到上师的允许,甚至情感勒索,绑架上师的良心,但即使他们获得上师的允许,那允许里头没有加持,在修行上尤其是枉费心机。

abby foo: 问题七:据至尊宋仁波切所说,在印度和西藏,藏人的户主(功德主)在邀请在家人或出家人进行多杰雄登法会时都面对哪些问题? 答案:他们说自己在进行雄登的法会但他们并没有这么做。实际上他们不喜欢做雄登的法会,但是为了获取一些利益如金钱或出于其他因素,他们说自己在进行雄登法会。这非常非常恶劣,也是出于非常俗世的动机。

Kwai Gin: 问题七:据至尊宋仁波切所说,在印度和西藏,藏人的户主(功德主)在邀请在家人或出家人进行多杰雄登法会时都面对哪些问题?答:有一些人把其他人,其他藏人引入歧途,当一些藏人要求他们进行雄登的法会,他们会说:“是,我会为你进行法会。”当他们离开后,他们会做其他的事,不是雄登的法会,他们进行其他不同的法会。那些要求他们进行法会的人并不知情。如果他们不识字,他们不识字也不会书写。他们不知道这些人口说自己是在进行雄登的法会,但实际上他们并没有这么做。

abby foo: 所谓『动机』,就是我们做某件事是为了什么而做。 :D 这一题问的是,接受灌顶的正确动机是什么。至尊宋仁波切如是说。(看下面的正确答案)
23 Jun 17, 09:39 PM
abby foo: 问题六:至尊宋仁波切也针对接受灌顶的动机做出了开示。请问是什么呢?
答案:你要非常确定自己是真的想要获得这个灌顶,而不仅是因为别人接受这个灌顶,你也要前来接受灌顶。如果你想:我应该前去接受灌顶,否则,我将失去某些东西。那是错误的想法。如果你真的想要为此做承诺,那么你就应该接受灌顶。否则,你就不应该接受灌顶。
23 Jun 17, 09:38 PM
abby foo: 华盈回答正确!有读《掌中解脱》就必然不会对『动机』二字感到陌生!

abby foo: 问题五:对于希望接受多杰雄登灌顶的修行人,至尊宋仁波切强调的点有哪一些? 答案:(一)必须在一个月内进行一次法会
(二)你也有必要遵从诺言,你必须对传承和条规做出承诺。打个比方说你(也许)会接受另一个传承的教诲,但是你主要的修持,你的焦点,你的精力(应该放在)这个传承,格鲁传承上。如果你必须或你想做佛教其他宗派的佛法活动,这没问题,但是你主要的法门,你必须对宗喀巴大师的传承做承诺。
(三)一些人在接受雄登的灌顶和教诲后,当他们听到这些流言,他们会认为是无知、思想狭隘的人在散播那样的流言;一些人则会想那些流言是真的,他们可能就此放弃修行,甚至不想修持这位邪恶护法的法门。因此,你必须对自己的选择非常谨慎,你不应容易受骗,你不应该盲目跟从别人说“这是不好的”,并听从所有他人述说的故事。你不应该改变你的心,你应该一直都保持警觉性,你必须确定这一点。你必须非常非常肯定,否则接下来,如果别人对你说:“哦,这个法门不好”,然后他们制造各种故事和流言,然后你就此放弃,那对你来说是不利的,也是一个极大的错误。因此你必须确保你好好的守住这个承诺,并遵从它。

abby foo: 第五题的难度升级,请大家要多细心作答哦。
23 Jun 17, 09:27 PM
abby foo: 华盈也回答正确!~~至尊宋仁波切给予多杰雄登托命灌顶开示。由于多杰雄登是格鲁派的护法神,而当你说“格鲁派护法神”的时候,一些人会认为你是思想狭隘,他们认为修持雄登的人是思想狭隘的,他们认为修持雄登的人是宗派心强的。事实上不是的,也许因为他们宗派心强,所以他们才认为修持雄登的人宗派心强。人们会制造各式各样的故事和流言,你必须先清楚这一点。一些人在接受雄登的灌顶和教诲后,当他们听到这些流言,他们会认为是无知、思想狭隘的人在散播那样的流言;一些人则会想那些流言是真的,他们可能就此放弃修行,甚至不想修持这位邪恶护法的法门,这对那个人而言是不好的。
23 Jun 17, 09:27 PM
abby foo: Kwai Gin回答正确!!很好!~~问题四:继续第三题的问题,至尊宋仁波切也给过相同的开示。请问是什么呢? 答案:至尊宋仁波切说:“由于多杰雄登是格鲁派的护法神,而当你说“格鲁派护法神”的时候,一些人会认为你是思想狭隘,他们认为修持雄登的人是思想狭隘的,他们认为修持雄登的人是宗派心强的。事实上不是的,也许因为他们宗派心强,所以他们才认为修持雄登的人宗派心强。人们会制造各式各样的故事和流言,你必须先清楚这一点。”

23 Jun 17, 09:26 PM
abby foo: Wylfred找答案的范围是正确了,但这个不是这一题的正确答案。大家要根据第三题的问题,关于多杰雄登是不是只帮助格鲁派的修行者这一方面去找答案
23 Jun 17, 09:26 PM
Alice: 开示内容是在接受多杰雄登法门灌顶后,你必须在一个月内进行一次法会。你也有必要遵从诺言,你必须对传承和条规做出承诺。
23 Jun 17, 09:25 PM
Wylfred Ng: 问题四:继续第三题的问题,至尊宋仁波切也给过相同的开示。请问是什么呢?答案: 至尊嘉杰宋仁波切的多杰雄登护法开示: 接受多杰雄登法门灌顶后,你必须在一个月内进行一次法会。你也有必要遵从诺言,你必须对传承和条规做出承诺。
那就意味着,打个比方说你(也许)会接受另一个传承的教诲,但是你主要的修持,你的焦点,你的精力(应该放在)这个传承,格鲁传承上。
如果你必须或你想做佛教其他宗派的佛法活动,这没问题,但是你主要的法门,你必须对宗喀巴大师的传承做承诺
23 Jun 17, 09:24 PM

23 Jun 17, 09:21 PM
abby foo: 更大的挑战来了。请大家接招!
23 Jun 17, 09:20 PM
abby foo: 问题三:多杰雄登对谁有无比的依止心?有什么可以证明这一点?那这是不是意味着多杰雄登只偏帮某个宗派的修行人? 答案:在格西族亲格而辛的唐卡上,多杰雄登的上方,你会看到金色月轮漂浮在半空中。这是宗喀巴大师。宗喀巴大师漂浮在半空中象征多杰雄登与宗喀巴大师非常亲近,也象征多杰雄登对宗喀巴大师的无比依止心。多杰雄登作为一名证悟者,一位佛菩萨,他不具任何的偏见,任何标签,更不具所谓的名字。说他只护持格鲁派和萨迦派是不可能的。每当众生召唤他,他随时随地、不受任何标签所限制地前去帮助任何一个众生。
23 Jun 17, 09:20 PM
abby foo: 哎呀,Jace虽然抢答成功,但答案里少了多杰雄登唐卡上宗喀巴大师在上空漂浮的这个解释。所以这一题还是WAh Ying抢答成功!
23 Jun 17, 09:20 PM
Jace Chong: 阿比老师,我是在长篇小说《藏地密码》里读到的,就是藏獒跟雪狮有非常多相似的地方,以前是佛菩萨的坐骑。但那只是小说嘻嘻。。。
23 Jun 17, 09:19 PM
Wylfred Ng: 问题三:多杰雄登对谁有无比的依止心?有什么可以证明这一点?那这是不是意味着多杰雄登只偏帮某个宗派的修行人?答案: 宗喀巴大师。 在唐卡中通常宗喀巴大师都被在多杰雄登上空漂浮。 而且多杰雄登的出现就是为了守护宗喀巴大师对于龙树菩萨中观见的教诲。 当然不是, 佛菩萨都是以利益众生为使命, 对他们没有宗派之别
23 Jun 17, 09:19 PM
Alice: 问题三:多杰雄登对谁有无比的依止心?有什么可以证明这一点?那这是不是意味着多杰雄登只偏帮某个宗派的修行人?答:1. 多杰雄登对宗喀巴大师的无比依止心。2. 因为在唐卡显示在多杰雄登的上方,有金色月轮漂浮在半空中。这是宗喀巴大师。宗喀巴大师漂浮在半空中象征多杰雄登与宗喀巴大师非常亲近。3. 多杰雄登与格鲁派及萨迦派非常亲近,但是作为一名证悟者,一位佛菩萨,他不具任何的偏见,任何标签,更不具所谓的名字。说他只护持格鲁派和萨迦派是不可能的。每当众生召唤他,他随时随地、不受任何标签所限制地前去帮助任何一个众生。

23 Jun 17, 09:18 PM
Wah Ying: 问题三:多杰雄登对谁有无比的依止心?有什么可以证明这一点?那这是不是意味着多杰雄登只偏帮某个宗派的修行人?答:宗喀巴大师,多杰雄等护法的上方金色月轮即是宗大师。宗喀巴大师漂浮在半空中象征多杰雄登与宗喀巴大师非常亲近,也象征多杰雄登对宗喀巴大师的无比依止心。多杰雄登与格鲁派及萨迦派非常亲近,但是作为一名证悟者,一位佛菩萨,他不具任何的偏见,任何标签,更不具所谓的名字。说他只护持格鲁派和萨迦派是不可能的。每当众生召唤他,他随时随地、不受任何标签所限制地前去帮助任何一个众生。
23 Jun 17, 09:17 PM
Jace Chong: 问题三:多杰雄登对谁有无比的依止心?有什么可以证明这一点?那这是不是意味着多杰雄登只偏帮某个宗派的修行人?- 多杰雄登对宗喀巴大师的无比依止心。虽然多杰雄登与格鲁派及萨迦派非常亲近,但是作为一名证悟者,一位佛菩萨,他不具任何的偏见,任何标签,更不具所谓的名字。说他只护持格鲁派和萨迦派是不可能的。每当众生召唤他,他随时随地、不受任何标签所限制地前去帮助任何一个众生。

Jace Chong: 听说而已,没有人能证明嘻嘻!看起来也蛮像的。
23 Jun 17, 09:15 PM
abby foo: Jace,真的吗?~~听说我们现在所见的藏獒犬其实就是当年的雪狮哦
23 Jun 17, 09:15 PM
Alice: 问题二:多杰雄登主尊的坐骑有什么涵义?答:多杰雄登骑坐在雪狮上,而狮子都被认作是万兽之王。他骑坐在雪狮上象征他能够调服追随者的傲慢,愤怒,以及其所有不好品质。实际上,骑着雪狮象征多杰雄登具无穷力量。就如他修持法的每日诵文中所说的那样,他具千万佛叫护法神之力量。

jerry_sito: Dharma Protectors of Tibetan Buddhism
ReadMore 👉 http://bit.ly/219ZnSQ ⚔️
Dear Friends, A common question that is often asked to the Kechara Buddhist Pastors by those who are not familiar with Tibetan Buddhism relates to the practice of Dharmapalas or Dharma protectors. These are actually beings who support our practice through a number of methods. Primarily they are propitiated in order to remove obstacles...

Mark S: @ PDL and Jacinta. :) Just dropped in and see your post Pastor Lai. Thank you for this. Yes, contemplating the many emanations and reincarnations of past Lineage Gurus, it immediately comes to mind, your knowing this, as you yourself are so close to one of them, His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. Surely, it is witnessed everyday, in his presents, And as we attempt to emulate some of the great qualities possessed by such attained beings, who's only wish is our Liberation from Samsara, may we be successful. Thank you for spreading this vast and profound Dharma for our mind of faith. I would humbly request, please continue to turn The Wheel of Dharma, for the benefit, and well being of all. Many thanks. See you all here again soon.

Pastor David Lai: @Jacinta - A high incarnation is highly attained and can have many simultaneous emanations out there. Some are recognized and some are not. In fact, a high incarnation would usually have 5 main simultaneous emanations - body, speech, mind, qualities and activities. They would usually look for the mind emanation and enthrone him as the incarnation of the predecessor. That does not mean he does not have other emanations out there. So, its not surprising that Khedrup Je to have incarnated into two lamas. What do you think of Manjushri teaching Lama Tsongkhapa in visions and Lama Tsongkhapa having Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen as a disciple. Aren't all 3 of them, emanations of Manjushri?
22 Jun 17, 11:31 PM
Jacinta: Moderator, I am a bit confused. After reading the Pastor David's account, who is the direct incarnation line of Khedrup Je then? Kyabje Zong Rinpoche or Panchen Lama?

wei theng: Q13. What happened in 1959?
In 1959, after repeated appeals from his disciples and students all over the country who were concerned for his safety, Zong Rinpoche left Tibet and sought asylum in India. In the remote settlement of Buxa in the Indian state of Assam on the Bhutanese border, he joined the surviving members of Ganden, Drepung, and Sera monasteries, as well as monks from other Tibetan monasteries. Zong Rinpoche gave a great number of teachings, and “in doing so, rekindled the flame of Buddha’s doctrine in exile. For the refugee monks, Rinpoche’s inspired commentaries on Buddhadharma offered a revitalizing hope and relief from complete despair.”
