Dorje Shugden Miracles
As I began this article in tribute to the loving kindness of our Protector, Dorje Shugden, a thought ran through my mind. Is this the same everyday story, as there have been many miracles performed by the Great Protector Dorje Shugden and many people narrating their accounts of the miracles? Is my story one of the many stories that had been told?
Certainly, most of Dorje Shugden’s miracles are related to a personal experience of His mercy and kindness to devotees. In recounting the miracles I am sharing now, they are rather different in the sense that the receivers of these miracles are not within the Kechara space nor are they devotees nor do they have knowledge of our Great Protector. But they certainly were in dire straits and had turned to my daughter and I for help.
The first instance happened while we were both managing a cafe franchise in Shanghai. We had the pleasure to have employed many Chinese nationals within our work force and we developed a very good relationship with them. Being foreigners in China, there were a lot of rules and regulations unknown to us and our Chinese staff became great assets to our business.
One day in 2009, we noticed that our assistant bakery chef was crying and it is not a common thing for a Chinese man to cry publicly. He had just become a father a couple of days ago and was informed that due to an abnormal massive blood clot in the brain, his baby girl would not live and all doctors had given up hope on her.
On a natural impulse, my daughter and I advised him to seek a second opinion and to see whether the diagnosis could be different. He answered that he had and all three doctors shared the same opinion.
Immediately we consulted our Guru, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche for advice. Rinpoche told the father to make offerings to Dorje Shugden and with complete trust, to recite 10,000 mantras of OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA. Rinpoche also mentioned that we should also recite for him and his daughter.
Upon completion of the mantras to be recited, within a period of three days, the father took his daughter to see the doctors again.
This is where the MIRACLE is – the blood clot had subsided! The doctors were amazed and began to have hope that the baby girl could be healed. Treatment began and while being on treatment and medication, the father continued to recite the mantra and especially so when administering medication to his daughter.
Today this little girl born with a huge blood clot problem is alive, going to school and in perfectly good health.
Although neither the father nor the girl had ever visited Kechara due to financial constraints, they will always be grateful for this miracle.
On another occasion in 2016, my daughter told us the wonderful news that one of her friends in Europe was pregnant with a pair of twins. However, the joy was short lived as with the advancement of the pregnancy and examination of the unborn babies, it was noticed that one of them had a very unusual development. Through the scanning process, it was observed that one of the babies had all his abdominal organs growing outside his stomach cavity and out of the physical form of his tiny body.
This was terrifying and the friend asked what could be done as she was seeking divine assistance. Tests would be done as to whether this phenomenon was due to a genetic deficiency or just a mere physical defect. If it was the latter, the pregnancy could continue and if not, then the baby with the problem would need to be aborted. This was of course not a good prognosis as it is almost impossible to extract a twin from the uterus and not endanger the other twin and the mother as well.
The Kechara puja team did pujas for the tests to be favourable so that the pregnancy could continue. Such was the success of the prayers that the phenomenon was confirmed to be not of genetic deficiency but physical.
Throughout the pregnancy, pujas continued to be conducted for all to be fine and for the birth to be fine too.
After birth, operations were done twice to place the abdominal organs back into the stomach cavity and during all that time, pujas were constantly requested by the mother. I am happy to conclude that all is well now although there were moments of great anxiety as infection developed during the operations. Throughout this time, pujas were once again constantly performed to remove obstacles and danger.
May Dorje Shugden continue to bless this baby boy to grow well and without further complications which are medically rectified.
Since the occurrences of these miracles, I have marvelled at how Dorje Shugden has so spontaneously helped “strangers” and the impact is very strong and powerful in my mind.
On reflecting on these miracles, it is also without a doubt that Dorje Shugden is the Protector and Guardian of all sentient beings whether or not they propitiate him. When called upon for help, He will be there.
How fortunate we are to be able to practice Dorje Shugden and to be able to help friends and people in need.
OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA.
