  2. The prayer says:

    To you who, for the glory of infinite migrators, shows signs of the skilful means,
    Which have arisen from extremes of both samsara and nirvana.

    However, these skilful means probably have not ‘arisen’ (originated) from extremes of both samsara and nirvana.
    Rather, these skilful means more likely have *risen* (moved above) the extremes of both samsara and nirvana.

    Please review the English translation of the prayer.

  3. Beautiful Picture… Never the less article as well. I’m saving this picture to place on my alter.

  4. We are immensely grateful to Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche for updating the Gelukpa Guru Tree, to include Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.
    Indeed, Wisdom Protector Dorje Shugden, you have right of place in this Guru Tree. You play an immeasurably significant role as protector of Je Tsongkhapa’s teachings, particularly his teachings, of unexcelled clarity, on Nargajuna’s Middle View on Emptiness, “the highest view, free from extremes’.
    By donning your saffron robes, you show all practitioners the code of moral conduct that we must all uphold. The Heart of “great bliss” which you hold signifies the innermost heart’s aspiration of all practitioners – Enlightenment and Liberation from Samsara and all suffering.
    To you, O Supreme , Supramundane Protector, who arose to fulfill a promise to guard and protect Je Tsongkhapa’s teachings of the highest view, Nargajuna’s Middle View, we offer our heartfelt praise and devotion. Without you, O Protector, we, who are caught in these turbulent , degenerate times( with our unruly minds and innumerable distractions), would be lost for ever.

  5. I believe Nechun is not an enlightened being as he has to come and appeal to Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen to manifest as a Dharma Protector to guard the teachings of Je Tsongkapa so that its teachings can be spread further to the world. It is also logical that a Dharma Protector needs to have wrathful energy. And since Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen did not agree Nechun keep on appealing to his incarnations until the incarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen appear then appealed again. He replied that he has no anger in his mindstream. How then can he be a Dharma Protector. Then with bodhicitta motivation for the benefit of sentient beings. Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was strangled. And when Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen died he became the Dharmapada Gyaltsen Dorge Shugden.

  6. Nechung has appealed to Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen to manifest as a Dharma protector because he is not an enlightened being. Hence, he could not be a Dharmapala to protect Je Tsongkapa’s doctrine.

    Dorje Shugden is manifested for times like this to benefit all of us now. I am very happy that Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche has recognised Dorje Shugden as a protector and has added him into the Guru Tree.

    The praises that is written for Dorje Shugden is just so pretty and fluent. allowing all of us to know Dorje Shugden slightly better through the words of the praise.

Contemplate This

.…Instead of turning away people who practise Dorje Shugden, we should be kind to them. Give them logic and wisdom without fear, then in time they give up the ‘wrong’ practice. Actually Shugden practitioners are not doing anything wrong. But hypothetically, if they are, wouldn’t it be more Buddhistic to be accepting? So those who have views against Dorje Shugden should contemplate this. Those practicing Dorje Shugden should forbear with extreme patience, fortitude and keep your commitments. The time will come as predicted that Dorje Shugden’s practice and it’s terrific quick benefits will be embraced by the world and it will be a practice of many beings.
