What He Can Do For Us | 祂能为我们做些什么?

(译文请往下阅读) (By Tsem Rinpoche) Dear good friends around the world, I thought I would make it simple and easy to remember so I came up with these to help you recall the qualities, abilities, benefits and and nature of Vajra Bhagawan Rudra or Dorje Shugden, the special protector emanation of Manjushri. Although he is a fully enlightened being he manifest in worldly form in order to be closer to us and he is able to assist us quicker. There are two categories of protectors.

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.
