How A Controversy Led Me To Dorje Shugden

I came to know about Dorje Shugden when I became interested in what the Dalai Lama announced and the hype of the controversy surrounding this whole issue.

My first contact with Dorje Shugden was when I Googled his name and found out more about this holy Protector. The controversial issues surrounding him had made me more interested to read about Dorje Shugden and his lineage.

My first impression of Dorje Shugden was that he seems to be gentler than other Dharma protectors. I found his appearance to be more ‘pleasant’ compared to the other more wrathful protectors that I had come across.

In spite of the initial confusion, I now understand the situation a lot better with all the information that I have happily reaped from Now that I have learnt so much more about the lineage of Dorje Shugden, I am happily (and without any doubt) doing his practice every day now.

  1. Dear Kevin,

    Rejoice in your practice in Dorje Shugden. Despite all the protest and all, Dorje Shugden is a Buddha. Glad that you have made your research and studies before going into this practice. Some of the reasons why Dorje Shugden is a Buddha and not a spirit as claimed by the Dalai Lama is:

    1. The lineage lamas like Trijang Rinpoche and Pabongkha Rinpoche , recently Denma Gonsar Rinpoche, are practicing this practice and they will come back life after life to continue to teach. if it was a spirit, then the lamas will not come back and will be reborn in hell. This is not the case.

    2. Dorje Shugden helped the Dalai Lama escape Tibet during the Chinese invasion. It is through the oracle that the Dalai Lama was advised to leave and what route to take to ensure his safety. The Dalai Lama also requested a Dorje Shugden Thangka from Trijang Rinpoche before he took on the journey to safe guard him and his people. However, this was not said by the Dalai Lama himself but was confirmed by the Chushi Gangdruk (the guards that protect the Dalai Lama).

    3. Many monasteries which practices Dorje Shugden has flourished in India, Tibet and the West despite the ban.

    May your practice become stronger and my you help in assisting the lifting of the ban.

  2. Yes, indeed, in announcing the ban, the Dalai Lama inadvertently brought attention to this very practice which he is trying to silence. Thanks to the efforts of, there is now invaluable information on Dorje Shugden. From here, more people can learn of the true nature of Dorje Shugden and faith can then arise.

    Thank you, Kevin for speaking up and being upfront with your connection to Dorje Shugden.

  3. Thank you Kevin Lee for sharing with your experience with Dorje Shugden. I am so glad to read that you had actually researched on the DS controversy which many don’t bother and jump into conclusions. An educated decision is so much better as it will help increase our faith and trust in the enlightened powerful protector Dorje Shugden. This trust you build with the Protector will keep you safe while you pursue your spiritual goals.

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.
