Excerpt from the video :

It was during the time of the 13th Dalai Lama that Nechung’s prophecies started to falter. This supports the idea that Nechung’s time as a protector is ending and the time of Dorje Shugden to emerge as an universal protector is at hand. For example, a victory against the British promised by Nechung in 1888 did not occur. Tibetans suffered a devastating defeat. (See The Water-Bird and Other Years, p. 19-29; and another British military invasion in 1904, p. 20. See also Portrait of a Dalai Lama, p. 437.) Later, Nechung is also believed to have prescribed the wrong medicine that caused the Thirteenth Dalai Lama’s death. p. 440 (extracted from

Thubten Gyatso, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, was the sovereign of Tibet from 1879 to 1933 and became known as “the Great 13th”. During his reign, he dealt with the “Great Game” between the British and Russian Empires and was for a time forced into exile in Mongolia by a British attack. He also had to deal with problems with China and the emergence of the threat of communism.

He enacted many innovative reforms in Tibet and, following the collapse of the Manchu dynasty, asserted the independence of Tibet along with Mongolia and sent several hundred troops to aid Baron von Ungern in driving the Chinese republicans out of Mongolia to restore the Bogd Khan. He foresaw great trials and tragedies for Tibet in the future and predicted he would die sooner rather than later so that his next incarnation could have time to prepare. During the reign of the XIV Dalai Lama all of his prophecies were proven accurate.
