JC: Tsong khapa and the Gelugpa school of Tibetan Buddhism
"Yellow Caps," was formed to counter the degenerated practices of the dark brothers, "Red Caps" which was the foreseen problem
of all the great teachers such as the Buddha, Christ, the Chohans and Masters. This was indicated by the Buddha in relation
to Buddhism. Lord Tsong Khapa is the "founder of the secret School near Tji-gad-je, attached to the private retreat of the
Teshu Lama" and "the
reformer of esoteric as well as of vulgar Lamaism”.
Firstly we might consider that Lord Tsong Khapa was the great
reformer of the Buddhist orders and enforced the rite of celibacy upon its Lamas and monks. They were known as the "Yellow
Hats". Why celibacy was a rule of this order is clear if we recall that necromancy was a common practice of the Black Hat
and Red Hat Dugpas. Sexual perversion and much degraded tantric practices were not only common, but were the basis of ascertaining
tantric visions and dream like states of awareness commonly, though wrongly, described as spiritual samadhi. Graveyards were
the natural haunts of the debased indigenous monks with the dead being the means to the ends of their disgraceful practises.
It was therefore imperative that celibacy became a part of the new order brought by the great reformer Tsong Khapa, and precisely
why Helena Blavatsky said that he "strictly forbade necromancy" and its "most disgusting rites".
"Blavatsky, like other writers of the time, referred to all
three of the "red hat" orders as Dugpas. So with further errors. There is no evidence that Tsongkhapa "forbade necromancy,"
Tsongkhapa and the Teachings of the Wisdom Tradition as stated by Markham and repeated by Blavatsky, or even that necromancy
was then practiced in Tibet, with or without "the most disgusting rites." Eastern Tradition Research Institute. 2008. David
"Tsong khapa strictly forbade necromancy. This led to a split
amongst the Lamas, and the malcontents allied themselves with the aboriginal Bhons against the reformed Lamaism". SD3 409.
"It was because, among other reforms, Tsong-Kha-Pa forbade
necromancy (which is practiced to this day with the most disgusting rites by the Bons—the aborigines of Tibet—with
whom the Red Caps, or Shammars, had always fraternized), that the latter resisted his authority." HPB. C.W, iv, 12.
JC: The Red caps were referred to by HPB as "shammers". This
is reference to their ancient practice of Shamanism with its animalist rites and obsessions. These rites and practices belong
to the Dugpa Church of Bhutan which is a part of the ancient Kar-gyu-pa or karma-pa sect. Their teachings lead to achieving
samahdi through their sorcery and degraded practices which were not a true samhadi or state of spiritual bliss but one of
entrance into a low realm of avitchi or hell. They gave up their bodies in their state of frenzied dance, divine madness and
discordant rhythm in order to possess the bodies of animals or to be possessed by some form of demon or un-holy entity, to
carry out their evil ends Such was the ignorance of the Bon pas or deluded oriental dugpas, brothers of darkness. Chohan KH
states in the 1880's... "In Thibet the followers of the right hand path, Gya-dugpas, yellow caps; black dugpas, red caps."
Clearly the red caps are the black dugpas of the left hand path of ignorance, and most clearly the yellow caps are the Gya-dugpas
of the right hand path of spiritual evolution. He refers to all the orders of monks as Dugpas with the distinction of Gya-dugpas
given to the yellow hats of Lord Tsong Khapa, the school of "high morality" and "virtuous order" which HPB sites as the Gelugpas.
It is this school of the "Good Doctrine" which was eventually grafted directly into the schools of the red caps which after
repeated attempts began to successfully convert the 'Shammers, Böns and Red Hats' from degraded practice to the law of celibacy,
high morality, Buddhist discipline and the "graded path" of Lam Rim.
The Introduction of Buddhism into Tibet - The Sage had perceived
the dangers ever since he had entered upon Thonglam ("the Path of seeing," or clairvoyance).
Amidst populations deeply steeped in Sorcery the attempt proved
a failure; and it was not until the School of the "Doctrine of the Heart" had merged with its predecessor, established ages
earlier on the slope facing Western Tibet, that Buddhism was finally engrafted, with its two distinct Schools" the Esoteric
and the exoteric divisions" in the land of the Bhon-pa. SD3 423.
True, in India, alongside the unsurpassed height of philosophical
thought and spiritual purity, one may encounter the most disgusting expressions of various demoniac cults and animalistic
obsessions, including the most abominable necromancy. There exists a sect, the followers of which feed on the brains of corpses.
One may meet them in the cemeteries on a moonlit night occupied with their abominable task; where the Light is brightest,
darkness is blackest. LHRII 490.
The Red Capped Brothers of the Shadow... The Red-Caps on earth
whose evil results we try to palliate but whose work we have no right to meddle with so long as they do not cross our path.
The Bhons or Dugpas, the sect of the "Red Caps," are regarded
as the most versed in sorcery. They inhabit Western and little Tibet and Bhutan. They are all Tantrikas. It is quite ridiculous
to find Orientalists who have visited the borderlands of Tibet, such as Schlagintweit and others, confusing the rites and
disgusting practices of these with the religious beliefs of the Eastern Lamas, the "Yellow Caps," and their Narjols or holy
men. Voice Of The Silence. HPB.
Bhutan was inhabited as early as 2000 BCE, although there are
no existing records from that time. Historians have theorized that the state of Lhomon (literally, "southern darkness", a
reference to the indigenous Mon religion), or Monyul ("Dark Land", a reference to the Monpa, the aboriginal peoples of Bhutan)
may have existed between 500 BCE and 600 CE. The names Lhomon Tsendenjong (Sandalwood Country), and Lhomon Khashi, or Southern
Mon (country of four approaches), have been found in ancient Bhutanese and Tibetan chronicles. 1. Dugpas (also called members
of The Dugpa Church of Bhutan, or the Red Cap sect); are a group of mainly Eastern Tibetan monks, or sorcerers focusing principaly
on the left-hand path traditions and various Tantric practices of Buddhism.
They became active in fourteenth century, and were considered
hedonists by many.
2. In addition to the order found in Bhutan, there are solo
practitioners, of some form of the Dugpa tradition, within North America. Wikipedia.
The Bhons or Dugpas, however, having appropriated the symbol,
misuse it for purposes of Black Magic. With the "Yellow Caps," or Gelugpas, it is a symbol of power, as the Cross is with
the Christians, while it is in no way more "superstitious." With the Dugpas, it is like the double triangle reversed, the
sign of sorcery. Voice Of The Silence. HPB.
