Dorje Shugden: Our Personal Stories
Throughout the years that H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has been in Malaysia, countless Buddhists both local and around the world have entreated Rinpoche, and continue to, for all manner of guidance, assistance and urgent help. Some request advice to advance their spiritual practice, others have spirit disturbances creating chaos in their lives while yet others seek help to solve more mundane problems including familial, health and financial worries. For many such cases, Rinpoche calls upon his sworn Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, through divination and other channels, to provide solutions and help those in need.
The following videos are just a handful of testimonies from the thousands who have benefitted from their practice of Dorje Shugden. They share first hand experiences of the compassion and power of this benevolent deity, and their thoughts on the on-going controversy against the practice of this enlightened Dharma Protector.
Through these videos, we hope that many more will gain faith in Dorje Shugden and we would like to thank our Lama, Tsem Rinpoche, for his courage, strength and guidance even in the face of much abuse and persecution – persecution that faces those who have chosen to keep their commitments to their respective Gurus to continue this practice. May our Lama live long and continue to spread the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa in the ten directions.
