Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was the erudite high lama who arose as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. He is regarded as an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri, and an important key figure in the incarnation lineage of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche.
It was always Rinpoche’s wish to construct a stupa of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen to create the causes for the lineage of Dorje Shugden to flourish. Rinpoche’s work for the growth of Dorje Shugden’s lineage was one of his greatest legacies. Thus, it is only apt to place Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s stupa within the Tsem Rinpoche Relic Temple, given their undeniably close connection.
The Stupa will enshrine the precious relics of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and his previous incarnations. The main relic in this 15ft Stupa is a piece of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s robe from the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. It will also contain a piece of the robe and hat which belonged to Panchen Sonam Drakpa (a previous incarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen) and a piece of the mala string which belonged to His Holiness the 4th Panchen Lama (Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s spiritual teacher).
The Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen Stupa will be the only one of its kind in the world, and an incredibly important source of blessings and merits for everyone who visits this sacred site.
