Diversion tactics

Two days following the conflicting news reports that their state Dharma protector is the “spirit” Dorje Shugden and then, Pelden Hlamo, the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) started another propaganda to divert the attention of media and protesters on the inhumane ostracization of Dorje Shugden practitioners. The CTA is now claiming that Dorje Shugden practitioners have…

Dear friends around the world, If you have your personal religious beliefs, you have every right to it and you have every right to express it and share it with others.

The Act of Giving!

Giving is a basic Buddhist virtue that goes back to the practice of selflessness, without which one can hardly call oneself a serious Buddhist practitioner. Giving consists not so much of the act of giving, but of the intention to give or share what one has with others. This feeling of wanting to give or…

Dharma Demystified: Dorje Shugden As A Yidam

Dorje Shugden has always been propitiated as a powerful Dharma Protector. However, if you stop to think, it is possible to propitiate Dorje Shugden as a Yidam as well. How is this possible? The answer to this question lies in the same reason why Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche sought to propagate Dorje Shugden’s practice for our…

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.
