My first experience of Dharma Protector practice came after a brief introduction from one of my Dharma friends. I made a silent prayer to Dorje Shugden, seeking his help with an issue that I was trying to overcome at the time. Within a week, my prayer was answered! From then on, I knew I would be protected as long as my motivation was right.
Ever since I began taking Buddhism seriously (i.e. to think, act and live according to the Buddha’s teaching to the best of my ability and based on my level of understanding of dharma), I have enjoyed a much more peaceful mind; I do not need to question the meaning of life nor feel depressed anymore.
I was bestowed officially given Dorje Shugden’s practice on Wesak Day this year (how auspicious!!) and have since attended several prayer sessions together with my Lama and Dharma family, after which I always feel positively energized!
Now, with the Dharma Protectors behind me, I know I will be well taken care of in my spiritual journey. May I be blessed with the chance to serve the Three Jewels as long as I live and for many life times after this.
