Dorje Shugden practice is very much alive and well preserved in Mongolia. Its literature, liturgy and rituals are intact and used openly, fearlessly, widely and undiscriminately in all parts of Mongolia. There is no doubt Dorje Shugden practice will increase and flourish forever more. Many people are practising Dorje Shugden fire offering rituals as shown in the picture here which means many people here have DS initiation.
After receiving the initation of DS one practices the tantric path for the welfare of sentient beings. On the initial stage of the path to this goal, one closely identify with DS by meditating on DS and reciting his mantras and making a ritual offering. Peforming the ritual fire offering pleases Dorje Shugden and collect huge merits to help and gain accomplishments on the path. It also serves to remove the faults of badly or incompletely recited mantras and removes obstacles to a good meditative stablisation.
There are four types of ritual fire offerings:
A peaceful ritual fire offering may be performed to pacify the results of unwholesome action, or to clear away obstaces and defilements. It may also be done to forestall impending difficulties and illnesses which have manifested themselves through dreams and inauspicious omens.
Among the purposes of performing an increasing ritual fire offering are the achievement of long life and the increase of one's wealth, wisdom and merit.
A subduing ritual fire offering may be performed to subdue forces that are harming other beings. A forceful ritual fire offering is performed against harmful forces or people, if attempts to subdue them have failed and they continue to harm others. A forceful ritual fire offering can banish or instil such fear in the victim that he ceased to be harmful. When performing such a forceful ritual the master must be motivated purely by great compassion, not only for those beings harmed, but also for those who are harming them. These rituals were most often employed to dispel or subdue local disturbances, such as the harmful interference of spirits, possession by spirits, military aggression and so forth.
