Giving Our Wealth Back

Dear sir,
I don’t know if you remember the economic crisis of 1997 but it had a very deep impact in Thailand where I live, and it made things difficult for a lot of people. I am sure it had an impact too, on your Tibetan people who basically have no rights as a result of the Chinese occupation of your homeland.

Anyway during that time, my family fell into near-financial ruin. My father was a businessman who was so successful that my mother did not need to work. My uncle was a stockbroker who had made a lot of money on the stock market, so my aunty and cousins also did not have to work.

So financially, before the crisis, we never had to worry about anything. But then of course, everything changed in 1997 and we lost nearly everything. We had to sell whatever valuables we owned to make sure our family survived. It was the same story with my uncle’s family.

It was during that time we asked for help from our lama. My parents and uncle’s family were at their wit’s end, and didn’t know what else they could do or how much longer they could keep going just buy selling their things. Between the two families, there were seven young children who were all still in school.

The situation was really disturbing my parents’ mind and making them distracted from their spiritual practice so my lama compassionately asked them to enter a retreat, and to recite 10 million Dorje Shugden mantras.

He said it was to clear their obstacles so they could become successful again. But in reality, by the end of the retreat, my parents felt wealth was not so important anymore. They realised that all of their stress was the result of their expectation of how things should be, or how they should do things.

I believe that it was my lama and Dorje Shugden’s blessings which allowed my parents to become free in their minds. Once they were free, they could see our situation from different points of view. So Dorje Shugden gave them the ability to think of their own solution out of our problem, and also made them feel secure so our finances no longer disturbed their minds.

I am thankful to Dorje Shugden for giving my family our wealth back. But I am MORE thankful that my parents no longer suffered from living in a continuous state of worry. This is all I wanted to tell you.

May you always be well, and may you always have the ability to serve the Tibetan people with the sole motivation of benefiting them.

With folded hands,
~ Vivienne Parachornawat ~

  1. Thank you Vivienne for sharing such an inspiring experience of your parents mind transformation. I rejoice that they realise that it is their pursuit of wealth and comfort that had caused the stress. Your Lama had been so kind to have given your parents the enlightened Protector Dorje Shugden practise that had created the conditions for you parents to be more at peace with what they have. Dorje Shugden had not only benefitted your parents but also you as you had experienced the whole process and thus gain faith and trust in Dorje Shugden. May you and your family always be under the protection of Dorje Shugden.

  2. It is by the faith that your parents have for your lama that they willingly went into retreat upon your lama’s advice. And it by the skillful means of your lama that your parents went into retreat.

    By the focus on their recitation of the 10 million mantras with no distraction from worldly affairs, your parents’ minds could transcend the perception and expectations of their lives and find peace. And, I’m sure after this episode, they will be able to bounce back in their secular lives. Sadness and happiness are in the mind.

    You and your family are very blessed to have such a kind and skillful lama for a teacher.

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.
