I don’t really know how to describe my experiences after praying to Dorje Shugden, but I know I feel much happier and lighter. My faith in Dharma has become stronger and stronger. This is hard to explain as this kind of thing is difficult to measure, but I am very sure that because of my practice and reliance on the Protector, my anger has lessened and doesn’t arise as quickly as it used to.
Before, if I became angry with someone, it would take me two to three hours to calm down. It is different now – I still get angry but I also calm down very quickly. Sometimes, the anger disappears within just a few seconds. And even if people are sometimes screaming or shouting at me, I can accept it much more easily than I could before and not hold on to it.
Another specific example of how the Protector has helped me was while I was working in theatre a few years ago. In one particular production, I faced a lot of obstacles. People would cancel on me at the last minute, leaving me in the lurch without the right people to finish the job. I felt constantly tense and a bit nervous; I really didn’t know what to do.
However, in my heart, I prayed strongly and sincerely to the Protector. You wouldn’t believe it – the very next day, someone called me and said he wanted to help me find people for the areas I was struggling to fill. Within two or three days, the people and materials I needed all came together completely. We made the deadline! I believe that it was because of the Protector that my obstacles disappeared so quickly. Very blessed!
