A good friend to have
Today in Kechara May 1, 2015. Dorje Shugden monthly puja and prayer.
Monthly puja to Dorje Shugden is performed in the special chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden that seats 700.
Shakyamuni’s holy statue is here temporarily till we move him to the new prayer hall we are building in Phase 2. Kechara people doing prostrations before they start their monthly puja.
After my guru’s passing which affected me deeply, for the last 30 years I’ve found solace, direction, wisdom and solutions within the teachings of Lord Buddha. This has been my real refuge and continue to be and will always be. I trust Lord Buddha’s teachings completely amidst all the chaos in my mind around me. But at times my karma just gets the best of the situation. Situations can become overwhelming as we all know. During my time with my precious guru, he imparted to me the practice of Dorje Shugden and told me compassionately this will help me get over so much problems and difficulties in the future. He asked nothing of me but only gave me the best and what he had practiced his whole life. I know my guru loves me and I love him and trust him. He gave me what he knows will help me. Living a fruitful life of Dharma for 81 years, he would have the wisdom to give me what I need. I trusted him and will always do so. Since then for the last 30 years I’ve put my heart into Buddha’s Dharma practice and failing at times, I invoked the assistance of Dorje Shugden. The Dharma didn’t fail me, but because I am ordinary, I failed at times overtaken by results of my past karma. Sometimes overwhelmed by loneliness, sadness, difficulties, financial hardships and almost giving up hope I turned to Dorje Shugden many times. Without fail and at times with clear definite signs, Dorje Shugden has assisted me as promised by my guru. I reflect back with gratitude. Dorje Shugden has never asked anything of me except to practice Dharma, transform my mind, apply lojong teachings and be of tremendous benefit to others. I am not a tremendous benefit to others, but I have applied the teachings of Buddha to transform my mind failing at times and triumphant at other times. Dorje Shugden always advises to take refuge in Buddha, be aware of karma and basically do onto others what Buddha has taught. Dorje Shugden is very ‘loyal’ to Buddha for lack of a better word. He consistently advises me this via the oracle and written in his puja texts. Kechara’s success today is a testimony to the assistance and power of Dorje Shugden for sure. You can have this for yourself too.
Now after 30 years of trusting Dorje Shugden and receiving so much benefits from him, I’ve decided to share his practice with my friends, students and people around the world. I’ve had many wonderful friends assist me. We always talk about how much a guru has assisted their students, but I would like to say how much my friends/students have assisted me in the last decades. I am grateful to them. All my ‘works’ cannot be carried out without them. I am grateful to my friends/students always. Therefore I think always how to repay their kindness in this life and help them in their future lives. The answer is Dharma and Dorje Shugden. Dharma for long term and Dorje Shugden for getting to that goal. Hence I share Dorje Shugden with them and many. My motivation is strictly that this practice has benefitted me and I saw this clearly as I am pragmatic and I wish to benefit others. I wish to repay their help, love and kindness. Being an ordinary person without much abilities, I cannot do much for now to heal or help many sadly, but I know if I introduce people to Dorje Shugden, he can help. He will help as he has helped me. With Dharma in their minds and Dorje Shugden assisting them, I know I have given something very good to my friends and everyone around the world. I know I have placed them into good hands. That is my only motivation as it always has been.
Today in Kechara, our wonderful people have offered their monthly puja (kangsol) (see photos) to Dorje Shugden. I rejoice for them as many of them are very good people and have problems just like you and me. When they rely on Dorje Shugden as I have offered them, I feel I have placed very good people into the very capable hands of this World Peace protector Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden can bless, protect, foretell the future, help find resources, give hope, give advice, dispense attainments and even be a friend to these people and everyone. He is active, alive, real, compassionate and like a protective father will watch over them as my guru taught and as I have witnessed in my life. I feel privileged to share Dorje Shugden with my close friends and many around the world who come to me and seek help, or just need protection and guidance. I feel when many people place hope and trust in an ordinary being like myself or in samsara’s ‘delights’, they go away empty. But if they come to me and go away with Dorje Shugden, I feel I placed them in the care of someone very powerful and wise. I feel I did something good. I feel worthy of their friendship, care and love. In life we get and we give. What we give is more important. I offer humbly Dorje Shugden’s practice to everyone and I hope they adopt this powerful ally and friend. For those who have adopted, I feel I have repaid your kindness, not that you were expecting repayment. For those around the world who follow me on social media, I have introduced something helpful to you and I am happy about that. For my friends on social media (Fb/twitter/blog/etc) that I may one day meet or never meet, if I bring Dorje Shugden to you, then our time shared together online has value. I want to give that value to you. I know you go through so much and some of you don’t have any dharma friends or centres or guidance nearby. I feel bad for you, but with Dorje Shugden, he can help you. Just practice dharma and invoke his blessings and see with time how he helps. He will help. Dorje Shugden is not a substitute for genuine Dharma practice but he will assist you along the way for your virtuous wishes as all of us encounter so many obstacles due to our karma and minds. That is the job of a Dharma protector. This is my offering to close friends, students, supporters and friends around the world I’ve not met or met briefly. May you all be well. 🙂
Dorje Shugden was given to me by my incredibly erudite and attained guru and now I humbly pass it to everyone in person and through social media. I fold my hands to everyone and request them to take the hands of this holy protector and you will never be alone again. You will have a powerful ally, a friend and a real protector who he himself follows the teachings of Buddha. Who operates from compassion as he is fully enlightened. I humbly offer Dorje Shugden to all of you to overcome the trials and tribulations in life we have to endure on our journey. I offer you my friend, something precious. May I be worthy of your friendship always,
As you know Dorje Shugden for the last 400 years have had official oracles recognized by the monasteries and high lamas. I have never shared these pictures before and this is the first time. This is the famous Panglung monk oracle of Tibet who has been taking trance of Dorje Shugden, Setrap, Kache Marpo, Namka Barzin, etc for over 35 years. He was trained by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Eminence Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He was fully authorized and enthroned as an oracle of Dorje Shugden by His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche and Sera Mey Monastery. This oracle visited Kechara and took trance of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo. I’ve had the great honor to speak with my protector directly during this time again.
This is my protector in full trance of the Panlung oracle monk greeting me. The touching of foreheads is traditional greeting between lamas. Dorje Shugden has always been kind and affectionate towards me.
