A Light Source

Now that I know who Dorje Shugden is, I realize that I was actually first introduced to him about 20 years ago when a Buddhist teacher gave my mother a picture of Dorje Shugden. She brought the picture home, framed it and placed it on our altar. Dorje Shugden has been in my home all this time and I have been ignorant to his power and blessings!

On hindsight, our family has been fortunate in many respects over the past 20 years. In all our business affairs – no matter how challenging things became, even when we experienced losses – things would eventually even out and other business opportunities would arise to help us cover the losses and start anew.

As for health, I am grateful that although family members have gone through some surgeries and illnesses, there has never been anything too serious or life threatening. I remember very clearly a surgical procedure my mother had which the doctors said would be slightly complicated. We did Dorje Shugden pujas before she went in for the operation and the complication expected by the doctors did not arise after all. The surgery was done easily and quickly. Even the surgeon commented that he was surprised it went so smoothly.

In my personal experience, the practice of Dorje Shugden gives me inner emotional stability and calmness. His practice gives me clarity and perseverance. When I learned more about Dorje Shugden and his practice, I realized how powerful it was when I could actually find answers to problems disturbing me whenever I recited his mantra. Initially, I was skeptical but when it happened more than three times, I had to believe in it.

There was a time when I was going through many emotional issues and often had trouble sleeping. I had many sleepless nights and this started to affect my loved ones as I became tired, irritable and very unpleasant to be with. One night, when I could not stop crying, I took hold of a small image of Dorje Shugden, held it close to my chest and recited his mantra. I started to feel relief and my tears started to stop. The deep sadness I was feeling gradually stopped choking me and I calmed down. Eventually, I fell into a deep sleep which I had not done in many weeks. The next morning, I felt lighter and relieved.

Dorje Shugden has been a light source to me, giving me balance and hope.

  1. What a wonderful sharing and thank you Kirsten. Sometimes when something or someone good for us is right there and we don’t even know it. I guess the time is not ripe yet and it is only when we have enough merits that the connection opens up to u. As you shared, 20 years in your house and through your mother’s merits, your whole family is blessed and protected by Dorje Shugden. You have mentioned that you and your family faced obstacles but each time it will soon clear with better opportunity or outcome. Dorje Shugden had helped to lessen the effects of karma arising so that you may practice dharma with the peace of mind. May you and family always be blessed to have the Protector close in your hearts.

  2. It’s great that you eventually could see the divine hand of Dorje Shugden even though at the time, you were unaware. I guess that is the way with some of us, that we are unaware that it was Dorje Shugden helping as we felt that we had not quite asked his help. And, then there are times when we seek his assistance but outcome was not as expected and we feel kind of disappointed. We do need the clarity to see the divine assistance rendered.

    Thank you for you sharing. It has made me resolve to be more observant and mindful that although it may not seem like there is or was any help, it was so subtle that we have to reflect to be able to appreciate.

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.
