KOnna - 01

Dear friends,

From a young age, I have always been intrigued by Kuchisake Onna, the Slit-Mouthed Woman from Japanese folklore. Originally I didn’t know her name or that she originates from Japan. I’d always wondered what would have driven someone to slice their own cheeks to form a wide Glasgow smile, from ear to ear. The thought of it just baffles me. Her appearance, who she targets and her origins leads me to more questions and I just need to find the answers.

I want to thank Pastor Niral Patel and Valentina for the help with this article, making it available for everyone here to read.

Who is Kuchisake Onna (The Slit-Mouthed Woman)?

Kuchisake Onna is more commonly known as the Slit-Mouthed Woman. She appears as a lady with her face covered with a surgical mask. You might think that a person wearing a surgical mask would throw up red flag in your head. However, this is not the case in Japan as people there wear surgical masks when they have a cold, flu or other illnesses. In this case, Kuchisake Onna uses the surgical mask to cover the enormous slit on her face. This slit forms a Glasgow smile, from ear to ear. She also carries a large pair of scissors with her.

She usually targets primary school children or college students. When she meets her victims she asks them shyly, “Watashi kirei?” which means “Am I beautiful?” If one says no, Kuchisake Onna will kill them immediately by stabbing them with her scissors, beheading them or slashing their faces with the scissors so that they resemble her. However, if one says yes, she removes her surgical mask, revealing a red, blood-stained mouth that is cut from ear to ear. She then asks them, “Kore demo?” which means “Even now?”

At that time, if her victim answers no or screams in terror, she slashes her victim’s mouth from ear to ear so that they will resemble her. If they lie and say yes for a second time, she walks away, following her victim back home, then slaughters them brutally at night.

Modern stories say that one cannot escape Kuchisake Onna as she is an extremely fast runner. She always catches up to those who run away and asks the same questions. However the way to escape her grasp is to chant “pomade, pomade, pomade”. Pomade is a type of scented hair gel, which she hates. Chanting this keeps her away. Alternatively, when she reveals her slit mouth, you answer her with a vague statement, such as “average” or “so so” which confuses her. While she is confused, you will have just enough time to escape successfully.

What Does She Look Like?

Kuchisake Onna is commonly depicted or reported to be a young woman in her 20s. She wears a crimson coat and has a surgical mask that covers half her face. With such a distinct look, you would think that it would be easy to identify her. However, there are thousands of women in Japan that have the exact same look. No one really know if a woman is Kuchisake Onna or not until she walks up to you and asks her first question, after which she reveals her bloody Glasgow smile.

Origins of Kuchisake Onna

There are many different stories of how Kuchisake Onna came about, but the most convincing of these tales states that she was a young lady who lived hundreds of years ago as the wife or concubine of a samurai. She was extremely beautiful but very vain, and could often be found flirting with different men. She was later discovered to be cheating on her samurai husband who became jealous. Feeling cuckolded, he attacked her and slit her mouth from ear to ear, screaming, “Who will think you are beautiful now?”

Her vengeful spirit then became Kuchisake Onna. She is usually encountered in the evenings, when she asks unsuspecting children or men if she is beautiful. Legend has it that she is a spirit who targets young men to take vengeance for her disfigured face and her death. As for why she targets children, the legends are not clear on this.

What to Do If We See Kuchisake Onna?

If we come across Kuchisake Onna, we should remain calm and chant protective mantras such as Dukkar, Sengdongma or Dorje Shugden quietly. In this case we can also recite the mantra of Trakze, the wrathful manifestation of Dorje Shugden. With this, we call upon the protective blessings of the Buddhas, making Kuchisake Onna disappear.

If she does not disappear and asks you the questions, you should not give her a direct answer. By confusing her, you can create enough time to escape and find somewhere safe. You should remember to chant the mantras under your breath. The mantra of Trakze is OM BENZA WIKI BITANA RAKYA RAKYA HUNG or you can chant any protective mantra that you are familiar with and connected to.

The most effective method however, is to protect yourself from encountering her by engaging in daily prayers. This will protect you from attacks by paranormal entities and also aid you in your spiritual path. What we should remember is that if we do come into contact with these beings, we are not to engage with them, so that we do not create a connection with them.

 

When Did She First Appear?

Records of Kuchisake Onna’s attacks date back to the 1970s, when she was seen hunting children. At that time children would often walk in groups, guided by their teachers to avoid her attacks.

In 2007, a coroner’s report was found detailing the story of a woman in the late 1970s. She was reportedly chasing little children when she was hit by a car and died shortly thereafter. Her mouth was ripped from ear to ear. Some say that this is actually the person responsible for chasing and killing innocent children, as detailed in earlier records. However reports of her still continue today and have spread to Korea and even China as well.

Conclusion

I wanted to share with you a little about who Kuchisake Onna is but most importantly, I wanted to share with you how to escape her deadly grasp should you have the misfortune of encountering her. It is best not to connect with her in any way and run away from her when you have the chance.

Personally, I believe that the entity known as Kuchisake Onna is real and she should not be taken lightly. If she is simply an urban legend like some people claim, it does not make sense that reports of her attacks occur not only in Japan but in other countries around the world. Kuchisake Onna being a worldwide phenomena makes me think that she is definitely real.

    Wow, now this is truly interesting…but yes she is real and no doubt about it.

  2. Brad Bryant (Konchog Zangpo) on Jan 26, 2017 at 6:56 am

    It makes sense that that could be the ghost of someone hit by a car. However the Thais who have many ghost legends themselves, also have a being in their folklore who has a similar affliction. In the Philippines, I believe there is also a traditional ghost that similar to her.
    You may be interested in the Filipino creature known as the “Aswang”
    In Thailand, there is the “Krasue” (difficult to write in English letters) which is a head which floats around in the air with no body, but only the digestive system (stomach and intestines) hanging down. It has been seen all over Thailand by MANY people for hundreds of years now.

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Dec 2, 2016 at 3:50 am

    Kind of makes me wonder why would this being target children.

    it wasn’t children who harmed her and cut her mouth. Intriguing to read about such a negative entity. May we all remember protective mantras if we do encounter such entities.

  5. Edward Ooi on Nov 19, 2016 at 4:38 pm

    I have always been very interested in paranormal things, especially about spirits. I find them extraordinary in many ways such as, why are they invincible to naked eyes but are sometimes seen in pictures and videos, why are we not able to touch many of them can, why are do we get chills down our spine or the temperature unnaturally drops when they are around, and the list goes on and on.

    This is a very interesting topic, and I have heard about Kuchhisake Onna’s story quite a couple of times (amazing that her story is even spread as far as to Malaysia) but never her real name. I definitely believe that she exists because while reading about her, I could actually feel chills going down my back. The only other stories that got me so badly was Zozo and the Black-Eyed Child.

    The story of where she originally came about was slightly unreal though, mainly because why would she target children and young adults? And also why would she only appear in the 70s when she had been dead for centuries? Honestly, I would not want to meet her under any circumstances. Thank you for sharing.

  6. TekLee on Nov 15, 2016 at 1:55 am

    Thank you Vinnie for sharing the story. Every spirit that exists, must have their reason behind. As far as I understand, grasping on the 3 poison, attachment, anger & ignorance, will lead the person to become spirit. In Kuchisake Onna’s case, it’s because he attachment to her beauty, her anger to her murder, that’s why she became a vengeful spirit after she died. Can you imagine how heavy her karma is? She has to stay like this for hundred over years, until her exhaust. Plus, she keeps hurting people like this, it’ll make her negative karma heavier. Pity her don’t know long more she needs to stay like this.

  7. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 7, 2016 at 10:24 am

    Kuchisake Onna, the horrible vengeful spirit is a being who is to be pitied as well. We learn from her story(whatever her origin), that it is important that we break our deeply habituated delusions of anger,hate,jealousy and craving .All of these delusions stem from our grasping at a “self” which is non-inherently existing. Train and transform our minds to let go of negative projections and expectations and develop positive attitudes of patience,non-judgement, acceptance and tolerance, kindness and care.

    If Kuchisake Onna had not been so strongly attached to her “beauty”.(We see this attachment in the first question she asks everyone of her victims) and her mind had not been so deeply habituated with anger and hatred , she would not have become a vengeful spirit. Being still so strongly attached to her delusions, she will continue to destroy and kill and collect more heavy negative karma.

    Yes, our best protection against spirit harm and black magic is by taking refuge in the Three Jewels and by realising the Dharma in us through transforming our minds. It is seen in the Lamrim and in Rinpoche’s teachings, that developing a mind of Refuge and of great Compassion will protect us all the way.

  8. Darren on Nov 1, 2016 at 2:59 pm

    Never knew about Kuchisake Onna, watched the movie. Feel sad for the attachment and anger that turned her into a spirit that possessed woman with weak mind. Thank you for the sharing!

  9. Khoo Hou Haw on Sep 28, 2016 at 4:13 am

    The story of Kuchisake Onna may seems scary, but it represented a poor being who is too attached to its beauty that her mind got twisted after losing its beauty and turn to harming others as a way of revenge. If she does exist, I hope the mantra of Dorje Shugden will bless her and het her out of suffering.

  10. Pastor Chia on Sep 28, 2016 at 3:47 am

    Read through kuchisake Onna tragic story, make me think when we alive, we need to learn how to forgive people who hurting and harm us.The most important to let go our attachment and vengeful thought all the time. kuchisake Onna death to reborn as the spirit because her attachment and vengeful thought are very strong, she keep appear over few century looking for the victim to harm others. These is the classic example spirit story whose had die in horrible way.Beside Dorje Shugden and others protector practice, we can engage eight verses of mind transmission. Train our mind from negative thought transform to positive all the time. Dharma is the best antidote to overcome our ignorance.

  11. Albert on Sep 28, 2016 at 1:28 am

    I have read before about Kuchisake Onna when I was a child, it was said that Kuchisake Onna was a very beautiful girl, she was in the surgical room to undergo a surgery, and during the surgery, there is some accident and the doctor accidentally cut her mouth till the ear, she was very angry and she killed the doctor and the nurses in that surgery room, and since then, she went around and keep asking whether she is beautiful, when the answer is not what she want, she will kill that person.

    Reading this article makes me reflecting about myself and the people around me, we all have a Kuchisake Onna inside us. When we look around us, or maybe within us, when we ask someone for opinion, what we really want to hear, when we are doing something, what do we expect for other’s reaction, when people does not agree with us, when we don’t get what we want to hear or when others oppose our way of doing things, we will hold the anger and for some, they even try to get them and bring them into trouble. So are we different than Kuchisake Onna? Nope, we are actually the same in this sense, apply Dharma in our life, learn to forgive, accept and let go, this is the only path for us to find our happiness. Seriously, Hatred will pull us down, hatred brings us unhappiness, lead us to bitterness and create more tragedy in our life, so why do we want hatred and suffer so much pain? Kuchisake Onna’s life is definitely a tragedy, if she can learn to let go and forgive, she will definitely be much happier and have a better life instead of now going around hunting people.

    当一个人对另一人有很多的愤怒和仇恨时,死时都不能放下,死后成为鬼魂也还是那么的執著,有如Kuchisake Onna 常问孩子“我漂亮吗?如果孩子回答「漂亮」,Kuchisake Onna就会把口罩摘开,露出那无法合拢的嘴缝,并问:“现在呢?”,如果孩子回答「不漂亮」,那就会被剪成两半”,这种愤怒和執著让她不断的伤害他人,事实上是让自己更痛苦,可是她自己并不知, 这就是“无明”, 这是很可悲!所以我们需要更精进的学佛,不然我们也可能会落到“做鬼都不放过你”的地步。

  13. Mingwen on Sep 27, 2016 at 10:58 pm

    “As for why she targets children, the legends are not clear on this.”

    Because children have higheer tendency of not lying? Because she wish to find an individual who would really find her beautiful regardless of her appearance, just like the love tale, “The frog and the Princess”

    “She usually targets primary school children or college students. When she meets her victims she asks them shyly, “Watashi kirei?” which means “Am I beautiful?” If one says no, Kuchisake Onna will kill them immediately by stabbing them with her scissors, beheading them or slashing their faces with the scissors so that they resemble her. However, if one says yes, she removes her surgical mask, revealing a red, blood-stained mouth that is cut from ear to ear. She then asks them, “Kore demo?” which means “Even now?”

    We should release ourselves from anger, jealousy, pride and ego, all these elements are leading us to sufferings. Etc., Kuchisake Onna, she holds on her anger and ego,hence she do not able to take rebirth and has to be a spirit.

  14. pammie yap on Sep 27, 2016 at 10:52 pm

    I watched the movie just now and I find it very interesting. It seems that in most of the horror movies, the spirits cannot ‘die’ and they will always return to haunt again. And the part in the movie where the person will always cough before it is possessed and during, makes me wonder why. The hatred that the spirit shows is kind of pitiful. To be trapped and suffering in that state.

    As for us, we are blessed to have mantras help us and help them at the same time. It would be super scary to be stuck in such a situation and not knowing the solution.

  15. Julia Tan on Sep 27, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    I believed Kuchisake Onna is trapped in her realm and behaving this way due to her anger when she died. The victims would be those who had karma connection with her in the past. No matter what we do not want our children to be the victims. I agreed with Vinnie that chanting Dorje Shugden Traksey mantra is powerful. This mantra not only can protect us at the same time we collect merits just by chanting He’s mantra. We should always stay connect with our Dharma protector. But we should not pray only when we have problems or in trouble. It does not work this way. Doing our prayer everyday keep us connect with our Dharma protector so that we are protected all the time not only from spirits but saved us from obstacles too. we can start with just 108 mantras a day.

  16. Pastor Antoinette on Sep 27, 2016 at 10:24 pm

    This tragic story of a young woman is an example of how things can go from bad to worse. It has escalated into extreme pain and suffering. It is important to know Dharma and apply the antidote. The mantra of Dorje Shugden is very helpful and we should never engage with such beings.

  17. nicholas on Sep 27, 2016 at 10:13 pm

    This article show us another type of spirits that full of anger. When one died with negative thought it will bring us to a negative path and Kuchisake Onna is one of the example. This also tell us that if there is spirit, there is rebirth and there is definitely karma which determine where we take rebirth after we died.

    Frankly speak I’m not sure whether Kuchisake Onna exist but I do belief spirit exist and if our karma open to experience them we should definitely need to know some way to protect ourselves just like what mentioned in this article.

    What important is not really find out whether this type of spirit is real but to learn up the dharma to protect our body, speech and mind. Through dharma we can understand the nature of life and the practice of right conduct to protect us from all harm that actually created by ourselves and eventually liberate ourselves from all the suffering.

  18. Jace Chong on Sep 27, 2016 at 10:11 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Vinnie for sharing this article.

    This is the first time I read about this being Kuchisake-onna as I am not a big fan horror or paranormal movie. I thought she is just a character in a movie but after finish reading the article, I found that it’s real that we could have chance to meet her.

    However, I feel sorry for her for trapping in this appearance and such hatred. If the ability of killing human is true, she is still collecting a lot of bad karma from the vengeful action, which will not help her to ease her sufferings. I really wish she can get out of this endless suffering cycle. Om Mani Padme Hum _/\_

    Thank you.

    Kuchisake Onna

    This is the first time i heard of this story and found out that’s really interesting, why a women behaved like that? Arise from hatred? Or..?? I will think about it. 🙂

    If Kuchisake Onna ask me “Am I beautiful?”
    My answer is : ” You look average”, she will be confused, giving me enough time to run away. He he

    If I have the ability, I will pray for her to go back human realm and make sure that she had an opportunity to practice Dharma while she’s in human form.

    Thank You

    Interesting story. I believe supernatural beings exist, good or bad, to benefit or to harm. These divine or malevolent entities are around us, just because we cannot see, hear, feel or communicate with them does not mean they are not there. They exist in their realm just like we humans exist in ours, and we cross each other’s path so often. Every religion has its own method of dispelling negative energies if one were to harmed under unfortunate circumstances. We in Kechara are very fortunate to be in the mandala of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, with protection from the dharma protector Dorje Shugden, who is the emanation of Manjushri, the bodhisattva of infinite Wisdom.

  21. Moh Mei on Sep 27, 2016 at 9:42 pm

    There is usually some truth to most folklores, urban legends and tales of the past. Most fiction books and movies are based on some truth as well. So it’s would not be surprising if Kuchisake Onna is real spirit. However some of the stories may have been exaggerated.

    It is common for spirits to be attached to a specific location, meaning a spirit that haunts a specific house usually only haunts that house and you would not find that same spirit in another country. I wonder if they are copycats in the spirit realm. For example this spirit become so popular it become widely spread all over Japan and not localized anymore but the original one is actually still where it was first encountered.

    Or maybe this spirit is not one spirit but a “species” from a specific realm/dimension. That certain karmic condition specially related to vanity can result in one being born as this species in that specific realm. This can perhaps explain the multiple versions of origins and tales related to Kuchisake Onna from all over the place.

  22. Stella Cheang on Sep 27, 2016 at 6:38 pm

    I feel that the story of Kuchisake Onna is a classic example of someone who does not apply dharma knowledge in her life. She would not be unfaithful towards her husband or hold on to vengeful feelings for so long if she had known Buddha Dharma. We must be compassionate towards being like her as she must be suffering unspeakable torment. She has no way out and every action that she does tantamount to very negative karma for her. May her suffering ends and she takes rebirth where she can learn Buddha Dharma. Thank you Vinnie for sharing her story with us.

    ***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 ) .
    Thank you Vinnie Tan for sharing this article.

    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.

    (REPLY FOR BEN)
    For Pastor Shin – Are pujas more effective than prayers?

    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:

    – Powerful Pujas

    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.

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. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
