Son, Father, Dharma Practitioner

To whom it concerns:

RE: Son, Father, Dharma Practitioner

I grew in a family whereby my parents were constantly at each other’s throats. My dad was a kind of a philanderer, and that brought a lot of disharmony at home. My mum even had her own affair to sort of even up the odds. It certainly was not a good conducive environment to grow up in.

There was one instance my father was angry at something that I did not accomplish well, he was heavy handed and he caused my head to bang against the glass door which shattered and caused my head to bleed. It has made me hate my father since that incident.

I became a very angersome young man in my 20’s. Now that I have two boys and a girl and I am a father myself, and I have gotten teachings in the Lamrim and have engaged in Protector Dorje Shugden practise, it was the protector practise which cleared my mind and allowed me to reflect everything that has happened to me had a cause.

I am not so innocent after all. The protector practise made all the difference in quality of life. I have traded in solving problems using harsh words and fists with negotiation.

  1. Negativity begets negativity. Rejoice that you found spirituality and Dorje Shugden and have decided to take the positive approach to decreasing your anger.

    Dorje Shugden will help when it comes to creating conditions for your to practice dharma as what you have committed to. As you have experienced, conditions will improve and you have even started to collect good karma by abandoning harsh retaliation with negotiations.

    May you continue to be blessed by the Three Jewels.

  2. Thank you Nigel Tham for sharing with us your painful experience and how the protector practice had helped you. The Lamrim had taught us that we are never innocent as karma will always come back once created. As such protector Dorje Shugden is so important in helping us to gain the merits to defer the negative karma which of course we wish is never. I am glad that you had found your peace and may your children grow in a foundation of support from strong connection with the special protector Dorje Shugden.

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.
