It’s a fact that the CTA has tried to re-write the history of Dorje Shugden practice through George Dreyfus’ The Shuk-den Affair: Origins of a Controversy. This paper puts the onus of the development and spread of Dorje Shugden on Pabongkha Rinpoche’s personal ideas and subsequent activities in the 20th century. Not only is this false, Dreyfus also imputes a derogatory sectarian agenda as the motivation behind Pabongkha Rinpoche’s alleged promotion of the practice with very little sources or evidence noted.
Therefore, I’m delighted to say that there is a new website by scholar Trinley Kalsang which will gradually show the history of Dorje Shugden practice from the time of Tulku Dragpa Gyaltsen’s murder to the present day, using the available Tibetan sources. This will counter the shameful re-writing of history for political purposes.
