The Ban Matters To Me

I was introduced to the practice of Dorje Shugden more than fifteen years ago and I have kept up with the practice until today. I thank my kind and compassionate lama for this wonderful practice without which I would not have progressed as quickly in the study and practice of Buddhism.

Back when my lama gave me the practice, he said that I should call upon Dorje Shugden and rely on him when faced with difficulties in life. And I did. After all, Dorje Shugden is The Uncommon Dharma Protector, the Enlightened One who manifested to protect the Dharma during difficult times like now when distractions are plenty.

For instance, a few years ago I was hospitalized with a viral infection, a common yet potentially life threatening disease without a known cure. All the doctors could do was to hook me up to IVs and prescribe plenty of rest so that my body could regain its strength and for my immune system to kick in.

I prayed hard, rested well and listened to the doctors and nurses’ advice. Within three days, my blood palette count practically returned to normal. I was discharged on the fourth day with a clean bill of health. The doctors and nurses were amazed with my swift recovery. Of course, they attributed the success to their advanced medical attention and to my cooperation. But I knew Dorje Shugden played a big part in it.

There were also many instances when I was in deep financial trouble and I prayed fervently to Dorje Shugden, requesting Him to help me ride through the difficult times by removing some of my obstacles. Sure, I had to put in a lot of effort too but there were some insurmountable odds that were stacked heavily against me. There was no way that I could have physically and humanly pulled through without divine intervention and assistance from Dorje Shugden.

Yes, I should not depend on Dorje Shugden for mundane affairs. But just like everyone else, when I was faced with life threatening situations, I prayed and asked Him for help; when I was faced with financial problems, again I prayed and asked Him for help. For I firmly believe that Dorje Shugden helps and assists Dharma practitioners like me, relieving me of sufferings albeit temporarily, so that I can continue on the Dharma path.

Now my business is stable, my relationship with my family is good, my health is good. I have the right conditions to continue with my Dharma learning and practices. I say these are opportune conditions provided through the compassionate love, care and protection from my beloved lama and my enlightened Dharma protector, Dorje Shugden.

In the past, I would never hesitate to explain Dorje Shugden’s practice to those who wish to know more. But with the ban enforced by the Dalai Lama and blindly carried out by his more than eager followers in the Central Tibetan Administration and beyond, it makes sharing of this wonderful Dharma Protector’s practice very difficult.

Not only has the ban made the practice of Dorje Shugden very dangerous for the Tibetan people, it has also greatly affected non-Tibetans around the world. I was refused entry to a Dharma teaching by a visiting Geshe in the country where I live. I was told the reason is because I was a Dorje Shugden follower. How absurd is that? A dog has a better chance to receive Dharma from such Dharma centers.

Buddhism is a religion that is supposed to teach loving kindness, tolerance, generosity, etc. but the Dalai Lama is now turning it into a cult. How can the world just sit by and allow the Dalai Lama to enforce a ban on one of the most established Vajrayana Buddhist practices and instead declare it to be demon worship? Moreover there are people who with blind faith follow and enforce what the Dalai Lama says. If these undemocratic actions are not considered to be inhumane acts that infringe on religious freedom, what is?

It is getting more difficult to share Vajrayana Buddhism with my friends and the people I meet. This is just one of the many obstacles that this ridiculous ban has created for the propagation of Dharma. Therefore it is imperative that the ban be lifted so many more will receive the benefits that I have through practice and reliance on Dorje Shugden.

The world must know of the unfair and unjust religious ban imposed by the Dalai Lama. A ban that infringes on religious freedom; a ban that has brought untold sufferings to people who have been practicing for decades; a ban that leaves most Tibetans between a rock and a hard place.

Some are voicing their right to religious freedom through peaceful demonstrations, others have started websites to provide more information about the truth. For those who are not able to do these things, you may talk to your friends and co workers about how the practice of and reliance on Dorje Shugden has benefited you.

And for those who are not Buddhist, please look at how innocent people are being deprived of their religious freedom. All because of what the Dalai Lama has done i.e. creating a ban on a religious practice which is enforced by the Central Tibetan Administration in such a manner that has negatively affected the lives of Tibetans and non-Tibetans alike.

All I am asking is that I, and millions of people worldwide, be left in peace without fear of bodily harm to continue with our practice of Dorje Shugden.

  1. With the amount of people Dorje Shugden has helped since his appearance 400 years he should deserve the Nobel Peace Prize or something to that effect. ANyways this is rejoicing news for everyone.

  2. I agree to the said that with the ban a lot of people have the difficulty to learn the Shudgen practice. Some even worst that just because they are Shudgen practitioners, they have been refuse to the dharma teaching. Our ultimate purpose to the protector practice is to remove the obstacle in order to learn the dharma, so in whatsoever way that the centre should not blind faith to follow the ban and reject those people for the dharma teaching. Dharma centre ultimate purpose is for the teaching. How could they reject people for those purpose just because the ban. This is ridiculous and defeat the purpose of dharma centre. There is no doubt the Shudgen practice can benefit a lot of people, just because of the ban and now slow down the spread of the practice.
    Now is the time for those people to wake up and realise that not follow any said with blind faith and create more unnecessary hardship to others.

  3. It should be more than the Nobel Peace Prize award to Dorje Shugden. Which Dharmapala can withstand and survive the great burden of blame and disparagement who is being made into a political warfare weapon? Of course it is none other than our beloved Dorje Shugden who is the Wisdom Buddha!

  4. Thank you admin for posting this testimonial and reminding us the needs to lift the ban now. Dorje Shugden practice has directly and indirectly benefited many people, i myself included.

    it is not the benefit that we reap from Dorje Shugden practice that bless us to remove our worldly obstacles, but it is to enable us to learn Dharma and applying it to our daily life and benefit others, and also prepare us for our death.

    The lies after lies by the CTA has cause not only trouble but also violent against the Dorje Shugden Shugden practitioner who just want to practice in peace, definitely something wrong with the CTA and the ban by HH Dalai Lama, because DS practitioner kept being attacked for such a simple reason, practice!

  5. Thank you for sharing your testimonial. There should be a column specially set up for testimonials; where those who have benefitted one way or another either directly or indirectly should be able to share their experiences. I personally have benefiited too from this great Protector; and have seen many around me whose Dharma has grown exponentially in them via the teachings and care from Dorje Shugden !

  6. Thank you for sharing your story and personal experiences of the benefit from practising Protector Dorje Shugden. I, too had felt the benefits of his practise and would share with people whenever I can. However, due to the unjust ban by the Dalai Lama who wrongly accused the enlightened Dorje Shugden as “spirit”, many that I share with would question the controversy and prefer to stay away from such a contradictory religion. Therefore the ban had not only created segregation and abuses on practitioners, it has prevented many people from receiving the dharma as they shied away from trouble and confusion. The image of Buddhism being a peaceful, non-violent and compassionate religion had been destroyed by the Dalai Lama’s illogical ban and CTA’s actions of instigating harm and abuse of Shugden practitioners. May the Dalai Lama swift gain his true buddha nature of Avalokitesvara to lift the ban and restore the faith of all practitioners.

  7. Well put. Right is right whoever speaks it. As the Buddha taught universal truth is indisputable. Ban is wrong for whatever the reason. It deprives some people of their freedom. In this case, the ban on Dorje Shugden is a ban that deprives the practitioners their religious freedom.

    Thank you for sharing.

  8. Thank you for this sharing.
    It is very true that when we rely on Dorje Shugden and do the practice consistently, Dorje Shugden is definitely will help us to purify our bodies and minds. Dorje Shugden practice is powerful as he is able to ease our suffering and obstacles that was manifest from our negative karma and provides us the conducive conditions eg will help us in develop wisdom so that we can achieve spiritual potential.

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.
