My purpose of making this post is to find out more about practices related to Dorje Shugden, other than those which are quite well-known other than Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's Heart Jewel and Wish-fulfilling Jewel, Infinite Aeons, Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors. Naturally one of them is divination. Out of curiosity for it, and after searching the entire internet world on it, I could only find short sentences making very brief statements on it, hence I decided to ask everyone. No one can know everything in the world, and I am one of them. People who have faith in Dorje Shugden can pool their resources together, and everyone can become more knowledgeable about our protector as a result of this, I believe this forum is the right place for this.
I am in no way suggesting that Dorje Shugden's divination method or the answers obtain from it, can substitute or over-ride or challenge the following:
1. Your Spiritual Guides' love for you
2. Your Spiritual Guides' wishes
3. Your Spiritual Guides' personal advice to you
4. Your Spiritual Guides' divination results for you
5. The teachings of the Lamrim, and all other text/Sadhana composed by Je Tsongkhapa
5. Honest and sincere hard work in practicing the Dharma
I merely wanted to understand more about this particular subset of Dorje Shugden's practice, and if it is within my means to practice it everyday to strengthen my bond with Shugden further, maybe I can incorporate this as part of my daily practice or monthly practice. This was because I ignorantly thought that it is as simple as other divination methods available in the market, then I soon realize how wrong I was.
I can also use it as a tool to make divinations for people whom I am trying to help. It may not be necessary for me to reveal to people whom I am helping that I have made a divination on their behalf or reveal the results of divination. It's not about making myself famous or to satisfy my ego. When you are sincere about helping people, people whom you are benefiting may not even realize that you are helping them at all.
Unfortunately I come to realize that this practice is much bigger than I thought, but it gave me another goal to inspire me.
For people who know what Dorje Shugden stands for and his unique mission, which is all of us, we wouldn't even think of using his practices to start a business or for satisfying secular desires.
May we all use this forum for peaceful discussions, so that we can all have an enjoyable time!
