Dear everyone,

A few days ago in my audience room in Kechara House 1, there was a leakage on the ceiling, and water fell directly onto Zong Rinpoche’s statue on the altar, not anywhere else. So I was quite concerned and worried.

Without asking me, Monlam, who was very concerned and caring and who has a lot of initiative, called up three very senior and old monks in Gaden Monastery to ask if it means anything bad. JP, also on his own, asked Monlam about the significance.

The first senior Gen (Gen means teacher in Tibetan), said that water falling onto the lama’ statue like that is nothing bad. In fact it is very, very good, it means that attainments are coming. And he also said, if there is anything like mushrooms or grass or plants growing on the statue afterwards, it is a clear sign that a lot of money for Dharma is coming soon.

In Tibet we believe what the old monk said. And the amazing thing is he mentioned this a few days ago before we noticed that something is actually growing on the statue.

The second senior monk, Geshe Jinpa said, there is nothing to worry about, it is a good sign, it means good things are coming.

And Monlam even contacted one of my gurus, His Eminence Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche to ask for divination, and Kensur Rinpoche’s divination showed that “Don’t worry, everything is fine, just do a long life puja of 16 Arhats for Tsem Rinpoche life. It is not a bad sign. Everything will be ok.”

All three lamas confirmed that after the statue is repaired and we put up the clothes again, I should offer up a khata, an offering of tensum and mandala, and everything is fine. In fact it is a very good sign. All three lamas confirmed that if I do that after the repairing of the statue, it would be good.

Thank you.

Tsem Rinpoche

The holy image is in my room now.

    Tsem Rinpoche practiced pure Guru Devotion. It has been mentioned in many interviews and statements that Tsem Rinpoche was much known for His devout Guru Devotion. The fact that Rinpoche stays in Malaysia is based on Guru Devotion.

    Because of strong and consistent Guru Devotion, Tsem Rinpoche will always have connection to His Gurus. Even after passing away, Zong Rinpoche’s blessing is evidently with Rinpoche, acting as guidance and blessing to Rinpoche. The manifestation of this plant is also a sign of the close relationship Tsem Rinpoche has with Zong Rinpoche due to strong Guru Devotion and clean samaya.

    I pray daily that, as Rinpoche’s students, we will learn to develop one of our Guru’s strongest trait: Guru Devotion, which is the foundation of all progressive and effective Dharma practice.

    Unbelievable small plant growing on Zong Rinpoche’s statue! I Seen with my own eyes the plants outside Gompa grow mushrooms few times. Of course is very excited when know is good omen.

  3. Wan Wai Meng on Jun 14, 2012 at 3:33 am

    It was Rinppoche’s devotion to his teachers and the Buddha Dharma that led him to do so much in the East. Rinpoche by being devoted to his teachers was being devoted to the Dharma. The Dharma lived within his teachers whether it was His Holiness Zong Rinpoche or Kensur Jampa Yeshe and so many many more. There are just too many coincidences in Rinpoche’s life which points to the fact that Rinpoche is very very attained lama with so much compassion for others.

  4. Shin on Apr 5, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    I had the great fortune to have audience with the statue of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and offered a khata.

    It is amazing to witness miraculous signs, but I always remember what is more rare and precious, thanks to the Lamrim class in Kechara House, about the turtle and the golden yoke:-

    There is a vast ocean, as fast as the whole universe. A blind turtle dwells at the bottom of the ocean, but he surfaces once every one hundred years. Meanwhile floating on top of the ocean is a golden yoke with a small hole in the centre. This ring is carried by the wind and waves. How easy would it be for the blind turtle to poke hsi head through that golden yoke is how rare for us to be born as a human or god and to come across the pure, complete teaching of Dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for Kechara is the golden yoke for many “turtles” who are swimming in the ocean of samsara and may our work continues to bring Dharma to many.

    Great news! Really eye opening information. This is my very first time reading this kind of information.
    Really thanks for sharing, Rinpoche. May Kechara grows and flourish forever 🙂
    With love,

    I can always remember this statue incident. People from KH was invited to Ladrang to view this statue. Rinpoche gave a dharma talk and along with it offered refuge to students who want to take refuge. It was very random and rare opportunity. To me that was a good thing coming. For me at least … to take refuge with one of the best guru.

    Zong Rinpoche is Tsem Rinpoche Root Guru and Trijang Rinpoche is the Guru of Zong Rinpoche. These two statues have been placed in Tsem Rinpoche’s audience room altar in KH1 for a long time. Uncle Eddie and I use to take care of the Gompa and Rinpoche’s room at that time. One day uncle eddie called me when he was about to make water offerings on the altar and spotted water dripping down onto the middle of Zong Rinpoche’d forehead from the ceiling. The water then flooded the floor around the altar. Zong Rinpoche’s statue was soaked wet and damaged. Then it was brought to Ladrang to dry before sendi g it for re;air. During the process of drying during the few days a small plant sprout out of Zong Rinpoche’s right knee. And Rinpoche dislayed it out in Ladrang Gompa for us to see. According Ganden Monasteery Senior monks say about the incident is correct. This is a good sign that we are expanding and growing very fast.

  8. Uncle Eddie on Sep 5, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    Rinpoche’s deep-rooted unwavering guru devotion could have brought about this miraculous blessing in the form of a yellow sprout of plant appearing on the damaged statue of Zong rinpoche. All three lamas feedback confirmed good sign particularly at the time when we are awaiting the manifestation of Kechara World Peace Centre. Even rinpoche’s own living guru, H.E. Kensur Jampa rinpoche’s divination gave the following Assurance; “Dont worry, everything is fine. Just do a long puja of 16 arhats for Tsem rinpoche’s life. It is not a bad sign. Everything will be ok.” Tsem rinpoche’s guru devotion reputation in Gaden earned him great from all who knew him – THE VITAL FOUNDATION TO ALL ATTAINMENT!

    Thank you Tatt Ming for sharing this storey to me when my family visited KH in June 2010. Now I understand this blog better and how it connects to the one after it is nicely repaired.

  12. pamela on Jul 10, 2010 at 3:05 pm

    I recalled this incident because most of the people who knew about it looked so worried, especially the liaisons as many didnt know the significance of such incident happening. Not long after that, an SMS came from Ladrang’s admin stating that everything is going to be okay, in fact better than OKAY. Monlam and the Ladrang people did a good job by taking the initiative to consult the senior Monks in Gaden Monastery. As always, nothing but good news. The fact that everyone was worried shows how much they care about Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche’s statue. Lily is so amazing, the way she ‘fixed’ (http://www.kechara.com/arts/news/a-restoring-zong-rinpoche-update/) the statue was beautiful. It really looked like new! Nice.

  13. JP on Jul 10, 2010 at 2:49 am

    I remember clearly when I received a call from Yoke Fui in the morning that the Zong Rinpoche statue in Kechara House 1’s audience room is badly damaged, I almost fell off my bed. I couldn’t believe that water would find its way to fall direct onto the statue. Directly above the audience room is an office. Really, what are the chances? In the 2 ½ years of being in service in Tsem Ladrang, the impossible always appear to be possible, defying all statistics.
    I immediately sent a few Ladrang staff over to Kechara House 1 to rescue the statue and examine the extent of the damage. Shortly after, I arrived at the scene. After examining the damage, we made a few phone calls to people who are experienced with clay statues. After much consultation, I gave Rinpoche a report and a proposal on salvaging the statue. We had to leave the statue to dry for a few days.
    As soon as I returned to the ladrang, I asked Monlam to call Gaden Monastery to find out the significance of this event. The divinition results showed that it was a good sign. We were asked to look out for mushrooms or plants growing on the statue. Immediately one day after we transported the statue back into the ladrang, my assistant Bonita alerted me of the sprout. I was once again pleasantly shocked because the statue was kept in a cabinet where there was no light! Amazing!
    Good omens do happen when we have good Guru samaya. Rinpoche is famous in Gaden Monastery for having Guru devotion.

  14. joey on Jul 10, 2010 at 12:01 am

    And to think of people who scoff at miracles saying that they do not exist and all that, this is one of them! Right here in Malaysia and with Rinpoche as well! That and this being the indisputable proof that Rinpoche is benefiting others and to the less knowledgeable and exposed ones, that Rinpoche is a ‘real’ Rinpoche from Ganden, not a doubtful one. And i totally rejoice for this sign as it means, well, funds for KWPC is near! hehehhe
    I feel that the important lesson here is to always have faith in the Lama. These ‘miracles’ are definite signs that things will happen sent to us by the Dharma protector to not doubt the Lama. And even though it looks hard to achieve, whatever that Rinpoche has said IS achievable…

  15. Sean Wang on Jul 9, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    This is real proof that miracles really do happen in Kechara House. I had the honor of seeing the plant on the statue and I prostrated to it. We can also trust and believe in our great gurus, our lamas. We also can trust the great teachers as they all said similair things indicating what they say is actually true! I like the pictures! They are in really good quality!! May Rinpoche live to a nice ripe old age, so that he can help may other people to get a good chance to be an enlightened being! OM ARA PATSA NA DHI!

    I was in Ipoh Study group open house when a group of us received news that water from the upper floor leaked into our unit and damaged Zong Rinpoche’s statue which Rinpoche had with him for years. I remember cousin Henry’s horrifying face when he broke the news to us. The first thought that came into my mind was “oh no, we are doooomed!”. Everyone’s mood was dampened as we took that as a bad omen. Later that day, we received news (just as how Rinpoche wrote on his blog) that Monlam had called the high monks in Gaden and they confirmed that it is a good sign as Tibetans believe that water is a sign of prosperity/auspiciousness. Just like if it drizzles after a dharmic activity, it is a good sign. We were also told that if a plant grows on the damaged part, it is even better. And lo behold, a sprout emerged two days later much to our relief!

  17. ngeowchin on Jul 7, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    Water for the Chinese always equates with money and smooth flow of luck and good fortune.
    When water damaged the statue of Zong Rinpoche in the audience room , whatever the above positive associations with water flew out the window.There was a sense of foreboding for all of us who knew about the incident.Curiously, it seemed like the leakage from the ceiling was very selective, finding its way and dripping down only on the spot where the small statue is.
    It turned out to be a good sign when the water give rise to a mysterious sprout and foretells good things coming.
    This was confirmed by 3 monks from Gaden monastery.
    In fact if it was auspicious,it was due to Rinpoche’s strong Guru devotion, the foundation of all attainments.

  18. David Lai on Jul 7, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    I think omens are just signs given by the power of the 3 jewels to herald something good or something bad. The omen itself is not the cause for what is bad or what is good. It is actually the samaya of the that person or more so the collection actions of that individual. Well, it is because we don’t have enough faith in our Lamas or we ourselves are not stable and unsure of what is right or wrong, the Buddhas are very kind to send little signs to let us know.
    However, this little plant omen is the most potent omen I have ever seen happening surround Rinpoche. It is most potent because it is arising from a statue of Rinpoche’s own Guru and we all know how devoted Rinpoche is to his Lamas. Rinpoche although a relatively young Lama in Gaden monastery, is widely respected not for his sponsorship or his diligent work for the monastery but his utter pure devotion to his Lamas.
    In fact, some older monks say they have not seen devotion like Rinpoche’s since the fall of Tibet. It was because of Rinpoche’s devotion that save his Guru, Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche from a rather severe complications arising from Diabetes. Monk revere such devotion because it is through such devotion that high spiritual attainments would arise as witnessed by this omen.

    The day when water leaked at KH Audience room and damaged Rinpoche precious statue of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, all of us were so worried that it was a bad omen!
    Fortunately, news and feedback from Gen Gelong, Geshe Jinpa and Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche lifted the boulders off everyone’s shoulders and chest!
    In fact, all these good news came at a very appropriate timing when we needed affirmation for the support that we were looking forward to towards the manifestation of Kechara World Peace Centre.
    In view of the size of this project, we needed the support from all angle from financial, to networking, to skills, to time support etc. We need to pull together whatever resources we have and work towards our goal.
    These signs came at the right moment in assuring us that we will gain the support needed for the growth of Kechara organization and the manifestation of Kechara World Peace Center.
    By the blessing of Rinpoche’s pure guru samaya and guru devotion, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche ‘used’ His holy body to manifest signs giving us the assurance for the support coming forth for Rinpoche’s project in spreading Lama Tsongkhapa and Protector’s teachings.
    You can call this a miracle or whatever you like. It definitely had shown us that we are moving towards the right direction under the guidance to Rinpoche in benefiting others!

  20. Sandy Clarke on Jul 6, 2010 at 11:53 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    This wonderful sign is quite clearly a blessing, but also an indication of your complete, unwavering Guru devotion towards HH Zong Rinpoche.
    To have you as our teacher, we learn the greatest lessons from your kindness, compassion and clear wisdom, but also as HH Zong Rinpoche’s student, you show us by example of your own Guru devotion exactly how we, and students of other Gurus, should commit to their teacher and remain devoted to them at all times if we are to benefit fully from our studying of the Dharma.
    May I offer my greatest respects to HH Zong Rinpoche and give my deepest gratitude for his pure kindness and guidance in teaching you in such a way that has led you to become our great, wise and compassionate Guru. We remain eternally devoted.
    Kindest regards,
    Sandy

  21. Elena on Jul 4, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    Beng has a point about that guru devotion enabling such blessings to be manifested. Because without guru devotion, even if such miraculous signs were manifested, who would believe them?
    What is sad is that signs like these are still needed these days to convince educated practitioners of a guru’s abilities. I feel that it is a sign of degeneracy that people do not believe their guru’s words without miracles, even though they are educated and can think logically. Rinpoche always says we take so many things in our lives as our gurus – we allow things like money, sex, the need for fame, to influence and run every decision we make, despite knowing those things drag us deeper into samsara…but yet we happily let them do that.
    Then when someone comes along and teaches us how to gain ultimate happiness, we balk at the idea of them telling us what to do and how to get it. If we can’t listen to him now, how can we listen to his instructions in the higher tantric practices, which can be dangerous? I think that’s what Beng means when she says guru devotion is the foundation of all practices in Vajrayana Buddhism.
    Guru devotion is the reason why we have Rinpoche here with us today. If Rinpoche had not been devoted to Zong Rinpoche, he wouldn’t have left the US to take ordination vows in India. If he hadn’t been devoted to Lati Rinpoche, he would not have left India to come to Malaysia, to raise funds for the monastery. So guru devotion isn’t just the foundation of all practices in Vajrayana Buddhism. Guru devotion is the foundation for Kechara to exist today.
    Anyway, this grand statue of Zong Rinpoche wasn’t left destroyed like this. It was restored by Kechara Saraswati Arts ( http://www.kechara.com/arts/news/a-restoring-zong-rinpoche-update/ ) volunteer Lili Ng who did an amazing job. I saw the statue after restorations were complete, and it looks as good as new…and Lili even made a replica for Rinpoche!

  22. Beng Kooi on Jul 3, 2010 at 7:09 pm

    There is more that can be said about the miraculous appearance of this sprout on the statue of Zong Rinpoche.
    Like all attained Gelug masters, Tsem Rinpoche is extremely humble and will not draw attention to the fact that it is actually his exemplary Guru Devotion and unbroken pure samaya with Kyabje Zong Rinpoche that enabled this image of his root guru to show signs and portents of what is to come.
    This image of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche has been with Tsem Rinpoche since his earliest days in India, when Rinpoche left his home in the USA for good and went to Gaden Shartse to be ordained as a monk. The image contains many holy relics but ultimately, it is Rinpoche’s strong and pure connection to Zong Rinpoche that enables such miraculous signs to manifest.
    May all true buddhists practitioners around the world also become shining examples of Guru Devotion, which is the foundation of all practices in vajrayana Buddhism.

  23. Linda Hoo May Ling on Mar 17, 2010 at 3:22 pm

    A precious moment………It’s precious plant, symbolic growth. The colour of the plant is yellow and round, supreme peace attainment as one. Standing tall on the right lap of H.H. Zong Rinpoche. So so unique. So glad I am able to place such special memory found in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Thank you so much to be able bookmark this land for many years to come. Do really hope this unique mystical plant can grow further into a big tree with flowers and if possible fruit bearing like the Bodhi Tree and yet maintain our H.H. Zong Rinpoche statue for more years to come.
    T H A N K Y O U S O M U C H!

  24. Thomas Canada on Mar 14, 2010 at 4:18 am

    I recently received a statue of H.H.Zong Rinpoche and all the memories or previous years cascade across my mind.This I see similarly to the ‘Sprout’ that manifested as if by a miracle.
    I wished to also share that the way you Teach resounds in my heart and mind. Therefore I thank you for your presence, even though you are half way around the world. Time and Space are meaningless.
    With Folded Hands, I rejoice in the clarity of your words!
    Many Thanks
    ps I too have a connection with Mongolia

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden: Part 1***

    According to His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is a fully enlightened Buddha who appears in the form of a worldly god so that beings in this era can access his blessings quicker and more powerfully.

    Dorje Shugden is also known as the Protector of our time because, apart from guiding Buddhist practitioners on their path to Enlightenment, he also attends to our daily challenges and obstacles. Dorje Shugden does this not because he is a fulfiller of samsaric wishes but because in his omniscience, Dorje Shugden recognises that the human mind becomes distracted from Dharma practice by mundane problems. Hence alleviating our worries and fulfilling our wishes is just a means by which Dorje Shugden helps practitioners achieve the higher objective, i.e. a flourishing Dharma practice.

    The problems that people of our time encounter are common everywhere we go and they include:

    1) Financial problems
    2) Illnesses and diseases
    3) Natural disasters and epidemics
    4) Stres and depression
    5) Violent crimes and wars
    6) Loss of purpose and direction

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden: Part 2***

    The Dharma Protector’s role is to ensure that practitioners have uninhibited access to the teachings, the clarity to understand the principles and meanings, and suitable conditions to apply what they have learned. And so, for the practitioner, the Dharma Protector functions to avert inner and outer obstacles the practitioner may encounter, and where necessary, provide conditions and resources for the practitioner’s Dharma journey to be smooth and unobstructed.

    Scary to know what exactly happened to Angel during her waking from sleep.Watched the video, wondering its sleep paralysis or the unseen beings pressing on her. This weird phenomenon as explained by Rinpoche is that she was karmically connected with the unseen beings.I do believe the unseen beings do exists after all, I am glad Angel is back to her own self , its over now.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    Sleep paralysis whether is science or paranormal.From what i read and hear to me its more paranormal as i do believe in unseen beings do exist after all. Sleep paralysis is more likely to be caused by paranormal distinct existence. I have not experience one before but at least i know now what i can do if it happen to me after reading this post.There are many other methods to protect ourselves just in case,like reciting our powerful mantra of Dorje Shugden( OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA ) .

    Interesting read from Tsemrinpoche.com

    Energy Channels
    This vital life force or chi, is composed of two kinds of forces, yin and yang, and flows along a sophisticated network of energy pathways, or highways, circuiting the body. Over 2000 years ago ancient cultures knew of the existence of these energy channels. They were called ‘sen’ in Thailand, ‘nadis’ in India, ‘meridians’, ‘channels’ or ‘vessels’ in China and Japan, and ‘channels’ in Tibet. In India, where many eastern healing arts developed, there were said to be 72,000 nadis or energy pathways. Disease is believed to be a blockage in the energy flow of these channels. A range of healing traditions, including acupuncture, acupressure, massage and yoga, are founded on the principle of the existence of energy channels or pathways, known as meridians, or nadis, running around the body in an expansive network.

    Pujas are more comprehensive as they involve rituals and prayers. In other words, prayers are part of a puja. Each puja is done based on scriptural texts and methods passed down by the lineage masters, which invokes the blessings of Buddhas/ meditational deities. Apart from recitation of mantras and meditation, ritual cakes (tormas) and other offerings are also done for pujas.

    You can read more about pujas here:

    Fully enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form they so choose in order to benefit sentient beings. Buddhas can manifest in the form of a Lama, a spiritual friend and even in the form of sound, which are called mantras. In essence mantras are the holy energies of the Buddhas in the form of sound. Reciting mantras of the Buddhas, meditational deities (Yidams) and Dharma Protectors therefore invokes their blessings to bring about a beneficial impact in our lives.

    Very touching……. i do enjoyed watching those videos.
    So courage of John Byrne the homeless man to jump into the ice cold water to safe his pet rabbit.What he did was indeed incredible .His love and compassion for his pet rabbit and dog is an example,inspiration to us .
    Even though he is homeless yet he care and love his pet rabbit and dog so much giving food by begging.
    The man Gary Kearney who threw the pet rabbit was sentenced to four months detention.It show that the law do not tolerate cruelty to animals. A lesson to learn from here is to love.care and compassion to all sentient beings whatever happen to them.Never abused them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and i have shared with my friends too.

    **The Three Bodies of a Buddha**

    The primary manifestation of a fully enlightened being is called the Dharmakaya. “Dharma” means phenomenon, while “kaya” means body. Therefore, Dharmakaya refers to the primordial or true nature of phenomena which is beyond conceptual and dualistic thought. This manifestation is essentially the mind of a fully enlightened being, beyond appearance and sensory perception. This mind knows no limits or boundaries… more: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-three-bodies-of-a-buddha

    By understanding Dorje Shugden’s enlightened nature, we realise that relying on him cannot lead us anywhere except for Enlightenment. Reciting any praise of Dorje Shugden on a daily basis reminds us of his attainments, and the type of being we are propitiating. It also serves as a reminder of the qualities we can attain as a result of relying on him, that his practice will help us to attain common and uncommon siddhis.

    Incense has been used as a traditional substance for offering since the birth of Buddhism. The first recorded instance of incense being used occurs in the story of Magadha Sangmo, whose impact can be seen across the ancient Buddhist world. The daughter of Suddatta, a layman and the Buddha’s primary patron, she herself was an ardent student of Buddha Shakyamuni. After marrying, she longed to see her Guru, the Buddha and offer dana. Climbing to the roof of her in-law’s house, she offered incense and a verse of invocation. The omniscient Buddha heard her prayers and arrived with his entire entourage, descending from the sky on a lion to fulfil her request.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you.
