Secretly, however. Lurking. Haunting. Poised to ''explode" onto the world's stage.
The nightmares and hemorrhages recently reported about some who question NKT's self-professed magnificance may now be explained.
Not to be undone by the worldwide celebration of the Dalai Lama's 75th birthday July 6, 2010, Shugdenites issued a dramatic press release the next day about stunning information about a long-awaited reincarnation that occurred decades ago but held a guarded secret until now. Shugden is alive, again.
THE RETURN OF THE KING: KYABJE DRAKPA GYELTSEN RINPOCHE
NEWS THAT WILL SHAKE THE WORLD
This website team has the privilege to receive this incredible news very recently and has the permission to announce it to the world…We at this website wish His Holiness Kyabje Drakpa Gyeltsen Rinpoche long life, continuous Dharma activities and stable health. We know your incarnation is well and currently living among us although you remain undisclosed. We pray and wish your current incarnation will openly announce where you are and be able to have audience with your precious presence.
We understand the Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen line of incarnations ranks at the very top and is on par with those of the Dalai Lamas, Panchen Lamas, Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche.
This line of incarnations has extended from the current incarnation all the way back to the time of the Mahasiddhas of India, namely Birwapa. You once again prove to the world, by being present you are truly a spiritually attained being arising from your pure prayers in another supreme body (Tulku-Nirmanakaya) as a great Lama, while another line of your incarnations arose as Dorje Shugden the protector. We again are very privileged with this information and find it an honor to announce this to the world today…July 7, 2010, one day after HH the Dalai Lama's 75th Birthday.
The undisputed incarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, 'silenced' for the past 350 years, has now returned, preparing to emerge publicly into the world again.
Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was the 'last' of Dorje Shugden's lineage of High Lama incarnations, unsurpassable in his attainments and knowledge, and considered equal to the great 5th Dalai Lama.
After his murder, he arose as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, who some were opposed to. His lineage of incarnations was then banned. His name was erased from all prayers and books. His properties and labrang were all confiscated. No one was allowed to even mention his name.
Yet, there is no stopping this eminent Lama from returning for a higher purpose. Every incarnation in this illustrious lineage has continued to make unsurpassable contributions to the growth of Dharma and Lama Tsongkhapa's precious "Yellow Hat" tradition. Only an Enlightened Being would possess such all-encompassing compassion.
Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen's current incarnation was unmistakably recognized several decades ago. His recognition is infallible. Remaining safely hidden, he has been spreading the Dharma inexorably under a different name, and awaits the right time to emerge publicly.
In time, everyone will be made aware of who he really is. His unrivalled legacy of great endeavors will once again shine into the ten directions for all to see.
One of Lama Tsongkhapa's eight closest disciples, Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen built the original Gaden Monastery, the first and greatest Gelug monastic institution that arose from Lama Tsongkhapa's teachings.
Famed for his ardent practice of pure morality, monastic discipline and unwavering commitment, Dulzin was considered to be an emanation of Tsongkhapa himself. However, he manifested as a student to show a clear and inspiring example of humility and Guru devotion.
Dulzin was so highly respected that he was offered the position of the first Gaden Tripa (Tsongkhapa's successor) after Tsongkhapa's passing. He turned this offer down, choosing instead to dedicate the rest of his life to upholding these precious teachings. It was with this incredible devotion and commitment that he made a promise to arise as an uncommon Protector to preserve and guard the lineage of his teacher, Tsongkhapa.
(Taking the form of Panchen Sonam Drakpa) He was such an erudite teacher and scholar that the three greatest Gelug Monasteries – Gaden, Sera and Drepung – begged him to be their abbot, which was unheard of in history. In his lifetime, he was responsible for the education and welfare of more than 15,000 monks, Tulkus, Geshes and scholars. To this day, he remains the only Lama to have held the prestigious position of abbot of all three institutions. He later became the 15th Gaden Tripa, the representative of Tsongkhapa on earth.
He composed 11 volumes of philosophical teachings that are still the core syllabus of study in major Gelug monasteries today, including Gaden Shartse and Drepung Loseling. Many of the most renowned Lamas have studied these scriptures to achieve the revered Geshe Lharam degree. These include the current and two previous Gaden Tripas, the Dalai Lama's imperial tutors, Ling Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche, and the Dalai Lama himself.
HE SACRIFICED HIMSELF TO ARISE AS THE PROTECTOR DORJE SHUGDEN, TO PRESERVE AND PROTECT LORD TSONGKHAPA'S PRECIOUS TEACHINGS.
In the early 1600s a child was born who exhibited unusual signs of greatness. He could recall his previous lives and, by the age of two, recited prayers from memory. He was already writing commentaries and giving teachings at the age of 9 and by 18, had meditated in hundreds of caves where he perceived Yidams directly.
Because he displayed signs of the most supreme, high incarnate Lamas, he was among the few candidates to be shortlisted during the search for the 4th Dalai Lama's reincarnation.
He was later recognised as the incarnation of Panchen Sonam Drakpa, and studied alongside the 5th Dalai Lama under the tutelage of the illustrious 4th Panchen Lama.
He and the Great Fifth were equal in their attainments and venerated as the two most eminent masters of their day. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen became so renowned that even Tibetan nobility, Chinese and Mongolian royalty travelled huge distances to request teachings and divinations from him.
Eventually, he became more highly revered than the 5th Dalai Lama himself. So much so that the Dalai Lama's attendants became jealous of his popularity and plotted to assassinate him without the Dalai Lama's knowledge. After many failed attempts, they finally suffocated him with a khata.
It was by his kindness in "allowing" this strangulation that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was able to manifest wrath at the moment of death and therefore, to arise as the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, thus fulfilling his promise made in his previous life as Dulzin.
HE IS…. BACK
Now, the unmistaken incarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen has returned among us.
He has been incarnating continuously over the past few hundred years, quietly preserving and propagating the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa and his most significant work, the Lamrim Chenmo.
Recognised by oracles and high lamas a few decades ago, the current incarnation continues to live quietly among us, awaiting the most beneficial time to emerge, to openly continue this legacy of incredible deeds.
His time is coming soon.
His return will cause an explosion at the heart of the Tibetan Buddhist world, righting a great 'wrong' that was done hundreds of years ago.
His return marks the culmination of an orchestrated sequence of events which began over 600 years ago during the time of Dulzin.
His return heralds a new age of Buddhist renaissance, where Dorje Shugden will rise to the fore, unveiling his true nature as the greatest Dharma Protector for our time.
The final episode in this elaborate epic reveals how the highest Lamas have each played their part to propel Lama Tsongkhapa's lineage to its highest peak.
An uncommon Lama…
Arising as an uncommon Protector…
Some Lamas can never be silenced…
(the Shugden web site announcing the news has an interesting symbol on the top of the pages.....a 'link' to display the sight in Chinese. ironically, Shugdenites claim to have minimal if any association with the Chinese. false again.)
The final episode of the Shugden saga is revealed! How delicious.
Apparently, the newly reincarnate Shugden has been watching NKT's battle with Tibetan Buddhism since the 1990s without his human involvement.
Nevertheless, Shugden opened a facebook account. Hipster Shugden embraces modernity.
One of Shugden's facebook friends was one of the first to reveal Shugden's rebirth; interestingly, this individual is a facebook friend of the NKT nun (Kelsang Demo, a facebook friend of Shugden) that replaced Lucy James after being fired by Kelsang Gyatso for not supporting his protest rallies.

Shudenites are giddy,
"SUCH HISTORICAL AND INCREDIBLE NEWS. This line of Tulkus has unwittingly 'threatened' and frightened the Tibetan Govt for 350 years. They have spent so much resources to obliterate everything about him and his name. Now his incarnation is back??? This proves Tibetan Govt is WRONG. If Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was such an evil being, he should be in the three lower realms. He's not. He is among us and doing dharma work again which proves all the untruths spewed by Tibetan Govt to be totally untrue. Their untruths are proven openly WRONG by the living incarnation of this illustrious being living among us now.
I am very excited to hear more announcements in the future. This is made one day after H.H. Dalai Lama's 75th birthday. How ironic is that.
May Kyabje Drakpa Gyeltsen Rinpoche live exceptionally long and reveal his whereabouts very soon and may I have the chance to meet his incarnation wherever he is now. May Kyabje Drakpa Gyeltsen and H.H. Dalai Lama again unite and meet in this life as they did prior to his murder 350 years ago.
I am still reeling from disbelief! Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen's return, or rather, his very existence completely shatters all the ridiculous claims that TGIE has been trying to force down every DS Supporter's throat. It's more than historical, it's the dawn of a new era – one that is going to shake Dharamsala to the very core of their fallacy-ladened administration. Finally, we have both the great King and the great Protector together again in our world. One teaches and propagates the Dharma and the other, protects. The Future that we have been waiting for has finally arrived. What an exciting time to be alive! I am so glad that I live to witness the changing of the guardians.
If everything that the Tibetan Government has been saying is now proven explicitly wrong, then there is no basis for the ban at all! There is no basis for anything they say anymore – it just went down the toilet! Ha! On what basis would the TGIE continue to discriminate DS supporters and worshippers?! Damn, it feels so darn good that HH Trijang Dorje Chang was right from beginning to the end! Today we can truly rejoice!
I'm speechless. What amazing news…and this is going to rock the Tibetan world!!! Gosh – when TGIE hear this, they will scream! I wish I could see the Dalai Lama's face when he hears about this and I'm sure he has by now!
This has got to be the biggest news ever. Wow! I m very glad to know that His Holiness Kyabje Drakpa Gyeltsen Rinpoche is alive and well. My faith in protector Shugden is again strengthen with this news.
This website is pretty amazing! It has the most up to date, comprehensive and sound information about our beloved Dharma Protector.
And indeed as Tulku Dragpa Gyeltsen is back, and recognized without fault, how could he be what the tibetan governement is trying to make us believe? How could he NOT be the OPPOSITE of an evil being? We must be very fortunate to witness such an event. I am very excited and really happy for all the lost beings in the worlds (and that includes me) that will be having the rare opportunity to live in the same world and at the same time with a great Teacher. May we all recognize the chance that we have and make full use of it to benefit many people in turn.
What incredible and absolutely wonderful news! The incarnation of TULKU DRAKPA GYELTSEN IS LIVING AMONGST US!!!!!!!! How truly blessed we are to receive such news in this lifetime and have the opportunity to be a part of this Buddhist Renaissance!!!!!!!
O My Buddha!!! I am blown away by the news! I feel like the world is going to have a new beginning, a new hope. I can't imagine the sufferings of the incarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen might have gone through,being quiet and stay hidden for so long, 350 years. And he has been among us doing dharma work, proves that TDG is a true beneficial enlightened being that fulfill his committment to propagate the Dharma, with or without a recognised title.
I wonder where he is now. This will become kind of like a suspense movie, we know he is among us but where? Who? Is he a monk? or a lay person? Western or Asian? I am sure as the event unveils itself, there will be a lots of speculation.
At Long Last, A Definitive Source, Can you Imagine the Direct Guidance and Clarity We Will Receive From Lord Dorje Shugden The Supreme Protector of Dharma Our Supreme Defender of the Dharma Our Champion Lord Dorje Shugden Has Arisen We Rise With Him Hold Onto Your Hats!
THE SUN HAS FINALLY RISEN IN A TIME WHEN DARKNESS AND CONFUSION HAVE GRIPPED OUR SPIRITUAL WORLD…THE KING HAS RETURNED…NOW BEGINS THE REAL STORY…HISTORY WILL BE RE-WRITTEN AND BE CORRECTED ONCE AND FOR ALL! OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA!"
"Throughout history, the three lineages of the Drakpas, Dalai Lamas and Panchen Lamas have always been very closely intertwined, manifesting inter-changeably as Guru, student and peer to uphold and propogate the lineage of tsongkhapa." That statement sends shivers down my sign – it is as though a huge cosmic play is happening unseen and unbeknownst to us mere mortals. The time is coming soon for all to be revealed and to me, this is like one of those epic fantasy books come to life and the final installment will be published soon – except that this is REAL. and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and his deeds are REAL. HOLD ON TIGHT EVERYONE, GRAB YOUR SADHANAS AND YOUR SERKYEMS AND GET READY FOR THE RIDE OF A LIFETIME!!
Long Live the King of Dharmapala DS! Long Live Kyabjie Drakpa Gyeltsen Rinpoche! Now the time has come to judge the TRUTH! Leave the past behind that cannot be corrected and look to the present we still have hope. Tomorrow will be a bright day after the stormy rain. Flowers blossom cover the earth. Uncountable rainbows appeared everywhere. Smell of the fresh grass blown by the mild wind. Harmony & Peace.
Yes, only beings with high attainments can control their rebirth at will. If Kyabje Drakpa Gyeltsen Rinpoche has returned it only proves beyond all doubts that Dorje shugden is NOT an evil being! Why would HH Dalai Lama, also a highly attained being, want to ban Dorje Shugden practice? I start to believe what TK's been saying now….that these two high beings, HH and Dorje Shugden are working together for a larger plan! Mere mortals like us only see the superficial and start taking sides. How foolish are we? Thank you for the great news !!! Thank you!"
Thank you webmaster and your team for such wonderful news!!!"
According to the 5th Dalai Lama (1617-1682),
"The so-called Drakpa Gyaltsen pretends to be a sublime being But since this interfering spirit and creature of distorted prayers Is harming everything, both dharma and sentient beings, Do not support, protect or give him shelter, but grind him to dust."
According to Zemey Rinpoche, author of the 1970s Yellow Book,
"Praise to you, violent god of the Yellow Hat teachings, Who reduces to particles of dust Great beings, high officials and ordinary people Who pollute and corrupt the Geluk doctrine."
Stunning news, widely celebrated by Shugdenites. Shugden is living among us, his reincarnation recognized decades ago but remaining hidden from the public. He was simultaneously a student and an emanation of Tsongkhapa (though Tsongkhapa never mentioned Shugden). He was the 1st and 15th Ganden Tripa (though the 100th and 101st Ganden Tripas distanced themselves from him). He nearly became the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas. His kindness allowed his murder by the 5th Dalai Lama. There is no stopping him. History will be rewritten.
Maybe NKT will be happy now, though this picture of its new leader raises concern.
Kelsang Gyatso, move over. Another living Buddha has emerged if you believe the news.
Sure would like to be a fly on NKT's wall to hear NKT's leadership discuss this incredible news.
Will the 2 alleged living Buddhas join forces (Kelsang Gyatso and Shugden)?
July 8, 2010, Shugdenites announced,
"It's obvious that Ogyen Trinley is going to be the Dalai Lama's successor judging by the amount of security surrounding him when he travels in the U.S. The above video looks more like a military operation than a Buddhist teacher making a visit to the U.S. Some people have brought up questions about Ogyen Trinley's connections to the CIA.
I wonder if the Dalai Lama's successor is really being chosen by the Dalai Lama or by the CIA."
Kyabje Drakpa Gyeltsen Rinpoche, the subject of the 'great' news is not to be confused with Ven. Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, who currently resides in Finland and is one of the very few tulkus formally recognized by Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen, formerly head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism.
The same web site announcing Shugden's new life quoted Kelsang Gyatso, NKT's founder,
"Concerning whether or not Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being, there can be no final conclusion through negative debate, mixing religion with political aims. This is because from the point of view of many people he is a worldly being, but at the same time from the point of view of many other people he is the Wisdom Buddha. This reasoning applies not only to Dorje Shugden, but to all holy beings.
If someone asked you how to prove that the fifth and fourteenth Dalai Lamas are Buddhas, you would most certainly find it difficult to give clear reasons. On the other hand, if someone asked you how to prove that these two lamas are not Buddhas, you could easily give a clear answer. You could say: they are not Buddhas because they need translators, they get sick, they are unable to come to their own decisions but have to rely on those of oracles, and sometimes they even get angry. How can a Buddha get angry, get sick, and so forth? Buddhas do not need oracles? So talking about this subject is completely meaningless, and only destroys peace and harmony in Buddhist circles."
"Talking about this subject is completely meaningless, and only destroys peace and harmony in Buddhist circles." For which NKT created a 'religiion', protest rallies and web sites attacking its survivors and critics.
Should we tremble in fear now that Shugden is back? Should we run for our lives?
We can't wait to see him, and maybe learn what he thinks of the CIA.
We wonder, since Shugden was reborn decades ago, why NKT did not collaborate with Shugden instead of its lawyers for its threats against its critics. More support for the view that NKT is a business rather than a religion?
According to China's Tulku regulations issued in 2007,
"Reincarnating living Buddhas should respect and protect the principles of the unification of the state, protecting the unity of the minorities, protecting religious concord and social harmony, and protecting the normal order of Tibetan Buddhism.
Reincarnating living Buddhas should respect the religious rituals and historically established systems of Tibetan Buddhism, but may not re-establish feudal privileges which have already been abolished.
Reincarnating living Buddhas shall not be interfered with or be under the dominion of any foreign organization or individual.
Reincarnating living Buddhas should have the following conditions: (1) A majority of local religious believers and the monastery management organization must request the reincarnation; (2) The inheritance lineage should be real and have continued to the present day; (3) The monastery applying for the living Buddha reincarnation must be the monastery at which the living Buddha monk is registered, it must be registered as a Tibetan Buddhist place of religious activity, and it must have the ability to train and raise living Buddhas.
Applicants to be reincarnating living Buddhas who have any of the following conditions may not be reincarnated: (1) Reincarnations which are not regulated by the religious doctrine of Tibetan Buddhism; (2) Those in city-level people's governments and above with delineated districts, which ordered no reincarnations to be permitted.
Reincarnating living Buddhas should carry out application and approval procedures. The application and approval procedure is: the management organization at the monastery applying for the living Buddha reincarnation where the monk is registered, or the local Buddhist Association, should submit applications for reincarnations to the local religious affairs departments at the level of people's government above county-level; once the people's government above county-level has made suggestions, the people's government religious affairs department reports upwards, and examination and approval shall be made by the provincial or autonomous regional people's government religious affairs department. Living Buddha reincarnations who have a relatively large impact shall be reported to the provincial or autonomous regional people's government for approval; those with a great impact shall be reported to the State Administration for Religious Affairs for approval; those with a particularly great impact shall be reported to the State Council for approval.
When there is debate over the size of a living Buddha's impact, the China Buddhist Association shall officiate, and report to the State Administration of Religious Affairs to be put on the record.
Once an application for a living Buddha's reincarnation has received approval, depending on the size of the living Buddha's impact, the corresponding Buddhist Association shall establish a reincarnation guidance team; the management organization at the monastery where the living Buddha is registered, or the corresponding Buddhist Association, shall establish a search team to look for the reincarnate soul child, and search affairs shall be carried out under the leadership of the guidance team.
No group or individual may without authorization carry out any activities related to searching for or recognizing reincarnating living Buddha soul children.
Reincarnating living Buddhas who have been approved by the provincial or autonomous regional people's government religious affairs departments or by the autonomous regional people's government shall be reported to the State Administration of Religious Affairs to be put on record.
Living Buddha permits shall uniformly be issued by the China Buddhist Association and reported to the State Administration of Religious Affairs to be put on record."
Nice to know China is watching. We look forward to China's approval of Shugden's reincarnation, assuming he applied for China's approval as required.
