Dorje Shugden controversy
The Dorje Shugden controversy is a controversy over Dorje Shugden, also known as Dolgyal, who some consider to be one of several protectors of the Gelug school, the school of Tibetan Buddhism to which the Dalai Lamas belong. Dorje Shugden has become the symbolic centre-point of a conflict over the ""purity"" of the Gelugpa school and the inclusion of non-Gelugpa teachings, especially Nyingma teachings.In the 1930s Pabongkha, who favoured an ""exclusive"" stance, started to promote Shugden as a major protector of the Gelug school, who harms any Gelugpa practitioner who blends his practice with non-Gelugpa practices. The conflict reappeared with the publication of the Yellow Book in 1976, containing stories about wrathful acts of Dorje Shugden against Gelugpas who also practiced Nyingma teachings. In response, the 14th Dalai Lama, a Gelugpa himself and advocate of an ""inclusive"" approach to the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, started to speak out against the practice of Dorje Shugden in 1978.The controversy has attracted attention in the west following demonstrations by Dorje Shugden practitioners, especially Kelsang Gyatso's British based New Kadampa Tradition which broke away from the Gelugpa school in 1991. Other factions supporting Dorje Shugden are Serpom Monastic University and Shar Ganden monastery, which both separated from the Gelugpa mainstream in 2008.
