  1. Dorje Shugden Puja is very essential to us in this modern age, because of the samsaric nature of the society that we live in today, we faces alot of physical, emotional and financial obstacles in achieving something that we want.

    Yet many people do not seek spirituality to counter their problem of attachment and ignorant to certain issue. To me Dorje Shugden and the DS puja is one way to help us clear the obstacles that we are facing, and yet at the same time plant imprints of Buddha Dharma to those who seeking the puja.

    I myself has benefitted from Dorje Shugden Practice during my difficult time, and everyone should rely on Dorje Shugden as our Dharma Protector, because he will lead us to a better path and show us.

  2. I love Dorje Shugden. I don’t see any reason to stop relying on him once we realize bodhichitta, because he also protect’s Buddha’s tantric teachings. So, we can ask him to be our Dharma Protector and he will help us have favorable conditions for realizations now until enlightenment.

  3. I committed to do DorjeShugden prayer daily ever since I was introduced this practice by a practitioner friend. At first I didn’t quite believe its power until I was down with financial problem and health problem. 4 years ago, I was diagnosed breasts cancer at the 2nd stage, and so coincidentally, right before this I quit my job hence I suffered from financial difficulties because I need big sum of money for the medical treatment…

    That period was my darkest days in life. I thought it was the end of my life until I received a small statue of Dorjeshugden from my friend and then I started the practice daily. After 3 months of treatment, my illness was miraculously gone, like totally gone, doctor was shocked. No pain, not much physical suffering, my daily routine was just pure prayers, short term retreats, chemo, strict vegetarian diet and it was gone! Completely gone! I knew it was the power of this protector, plus my consistency and faith that makes my healing process so smoothly.

    Today I’m a healthy, married working lady with 2 lovely kids. I thank all these to Lord dorjeshugden, and most importantly, my friend Kay who introduced me this super powerful practice.

  4. I would also like to express my deep gratitude to this informative and educational website for my healing. It’s by reading this website, I got to learn, absorb, ask questions in the forum in order to clear my doubts in the “ban” thingy. It’s because of YOU, I have stronger faith in this protector despite the rumors, accusations and condemnations. I do not believe such authentic, pure and genuine lineage passed down from so many Highly respected Lamas like Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin, Trijiang Rinpoche, Pabongka Rinpoche, Dagom Rinpoche and the list goes on… will be defeated so easily. Truth is Truth. Lie is Lie. Time will prove everything. We shall see..

  5. The world is in chaos and people do as they wish and with impunity. If they can get away with something they would probably do it. Things like honour,decorum , culture has given away to materialism, the one who is the strongest will have a say and their way.

    I do think Dorje Shugden is so important for people who are struggling with their lives and have little resources or opportunity to better themselves. Dorje Shugden is able to alleviate those people who have little hope to give them some way of bettering themselves and it is a spark for the downtrodden and those without hope. Such is the power of Doirje Shudgen, it is able to help beings from a variety of conditions and situation.

  6. All pujas are powerful to heal our samsaric problems and also increase the growth of one’s spiritual path. As we believe and have faith in Dorje Shudgen that He is an enlightened being and a powerful protector, and we engaged in His prayers, we will see results. When people are lost with hopes from the outside world; these prayers, the holy words and mantras by the Enlightened beings are what keep the faith and hope in us. That this is not the end of the world. We have to develop the faith and let the prayers do the “magic”.. With the many benefits of DS prayer, everyone should have the faith on this protector, Dorje Shudgen that He will guide us to our spiritual path.

  7. I have heard time and again that Dorje Shugden is the perfect Protector of our time and I never doubted this statement. However, in a recent Dharma sharing, the strength of this statement is reiterated when I learn that the very-short-and-easy-to-recite mantra of Dorje Shugden (the section: wikki bittana) is a perfect and concise synthesis of the essence of the 5 Dhyani Buddhas (

    While we presently approach Dorje Shugden as a Dharma Protector we are actually developing the merits to perceive and practice the perfection of the 5 wisdoms necessary to transcend our samsaric state.

    It is said that during the Kaliyuga period, the level of degeneration is such that we will not be able to perceive the Buddha or His teachings, even if he was standing before us. This distance created is not by the Buddha but by our karma, which are the fruits of the actions of our body, speech and mind. Therefore, to reduce the distance or gap between sentient beings and the Buddha, compassionate beings like Dorje Shugden manifests in the form of nirmanakaya ( so as to keep the pure Dharma intact and available to us. It is also worth mentioning at this point that Dorje Shugden is so compassionate to come down to our level and wear boots to “walk among men” so as to keep the Dharma within our reach.

    The above realization I have truly baffled me. The practice of Dorje Shugden is truly needed and essential and I pray that each time we recite his precious and kind mantra, we become more aware to not waste time and effort in activities that bring no benefit when our karma ripens.

  8. Shugden protector is a quick helper and always be there for us when in need. The most important thing is we must have faith in this great protector. As long as we consistent with the Shugden practice, the miracle always could happen. I feel fortunate to come across to this practice. I truly believe so do all the Shugden practitioners.

  9. Dorje Shugden is , undeniably, the swiftest and most efficacious Protector of our time, always coming swiftly to answer our prayers and propitiation of him.

    If we seek liberation and enlightenment as our ultimate goal, He will be our best guide and guardian. We need him especially in this degenerate age , with its innumerable distractions. Furthermore, as Ignorance and wrong views and confusion are at the root of our obstacles, we clearly need this Wisdom Protector, Manjushri Dorje Shugden, as our Dharma Protector in this life and future lives.

  10. With Dorje Shugden emanated in the form of worldly god, He has closer affinity with us, thus can come to our aid much faster. I personally experienced the benefits of Dorje Shugden’s practice, including healing our mind, body; and provide conducive conditions for spiritual practice or growth.
