Keeping A Roof Over My Head

I was in danger of losing my home. Tenancy agreements can be tricky things; they are valid based on certain conditions, and invalid based on others. And in my case, my tenancy agreement appeared to be invalid.

Let me explain – I was facing a nasty landlord who, one year into a five-year contract, wanted to evict me to sell the home. For whatever reason, he was claiming the tenancy agreement was not valid and he had every right to kick me out. He gave me four to five months to leave. That’s not a lot of time when you’re holding down a full-time job where full-time really means 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To look for a new place, decorate and furnish it… ah yes, decorate – my position really wasn’t the most pleasant because I’d put my heart and soul into decorating the house.

To be honest, I didn’t really ask the Protector for help. I might’ve muttered something in passing, or said a quick prayer but I didn’t make any explicit requests in the form of pujas or supplications. I just tried my level best for things to work.

Over the months though, a miraculous thing happened. As the owner tried to sell the place, one by one, buyers would delay and finally drop out of the sale altogether. This bought me time but I never stopped worrying about having to move out… and my worries appeared to be well-founded when, one day, I learnt that the owner had finally managed to sell the place to someone equally keen to evict me.

It seemed like I’d lost the battle, and I’d lost my home. I was contemplating the logistics of my move when one day, to my utter surprise, my lawyer called up. He said he had discovered my agreement was valid after all. It was difficult to explain why, but that was what he’d found out and the new owner (who apparently was livid!) couldn’t do anything about it.

I’ve now got three more years of assured tenancy in my home, thanks to the Protector who heard my inner request for help!

  1. Protector is indeed very compassionate and is the epitome kindness itself. Though you admitted to not doing very much in enlisting Protector’s help, he did hear you and assisted you.

    This really warms my heart and brought new faith to me. Like you, I sometimes wonder whether I’ve done enough or whether Protector heard me.

    Thank you.

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.
