About the Author

Venerable T. G. Dhongthog Rinpoche was recognized as the 5th reincarnation of jampal Rigpai Raldri by H.H. Sakya Dagchen Ngawang Kunga Rinchen of Drolma Palace. Rinpoche is the head teacher of Dhongthog Rigdrol Phuntsog Ling Monastery, Kardze, Tibet. He studied Tibetan literature and Buddhist philosophy at Dzongsar Institute, Dege, Tibet. He left Tibet in 1957 and lived in India till 1979, where he had been serving the government of Tibet in-exile for thirteen tears, and at the same time he learnt English and Hindi.

Dhongthog Rinpoche immigrated to the United States of America in the summer of 1979. He founded Sapan Institute at Seattle, U.S.A. in 1987 for the study, composition, translation and publication of Tibetan Buddhist culture. His literary works include: English-Tibetan Dictionary, The Timely Shower. The Timely Flame, The Peacock’s Joyful Dance, The Cleansing Water-drops and The Earth Shaking thunder of True Word, (this is also available in English).

Preface to the English edition

The Earth Shaking Thunder of True Word was composed and published with a very specific intention. Its purpose is to influence those who either ignore, doubt of misunderstand H.H. The Dalai Lama’s advice regarding the propitiation of guardian deities. In particular, this work is aimed at rectifying the misguided view that certain practitioners have regarding Dolgyal cult.

Being the holder of the title, Rinpoche, it is incumbent upon me, as a sacred duty, to point out practitioners’ mistakes and thus protect them for wrong views that are the cause of breaking their refuge vows. Furthermore, I had the great fortune to study the Buddha Dharma under several greatly accomplished and learned masters. And since their enlightened perspectives are therefore reflect in this work. So, it is my hope that this book will provide a clear and comprehensible overview of the subject and thereby be of value to anyone who has an interest in Buddhist practice and history.

The Tibetan edition of this booklet was published by Sapan Institute in 1997 at Seattle, USA. I would like to express my sincere thanks to my spiritual friends, Abby Petty (Kalzang Dolkar) and Thubten Jampa whose valuable assistance enabled to make the draft of this text in the English version. My heartfelt thanks are also extended especially to Lucjan Shila whoo worked very diligently on this edition, with the necessary improvements, and made the final press copy possible.

With the generous financial assistance of Dharma friends, my Institute, was finally able to publish this English edition in November, 2000, in Singapore. I am also greatful to all the kind and generous sponsors who made contributions to this project.

Bt the marit of this publications, may H.H. The Dalai Lama, H.H. Sakya Trizin, H.E. Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche and all the teachers of Budhda Dharma live long. And mat their holy activities always be successful! May the sponsors of this work and all sentient beings be free from calamities and attain ultimate Enlightenment quickly !
