The Right Place at the Right Time

You have to get that deal, the pressure is on. That multi-million dollar project will either make or break your career, and you know that you need to ace your sales pitch to the right person to catapult you onto a fast-track path to success.

So there I was, stressing out for a month before our sales pitch for a massive project. We were in full force for our preparations – our presentation, ideas, concepts, strategy and plans had to sell. I had heard that we weren’t the only ones tendering for the project and we were up against some of the top players in the industry. What kept me grounded during the late night slogging was my prayers and faith in Dorje Shugden. That’s about it.

After a month of late nights and meetings, we were up for our presentation. It was finally here, and we were all ready. We had given it our all and were mentally prepared. As we walked into the meeting room, to our horror, we found out that the man-in-charge, the director, couldn’t attend the meeting. He was the one that would be key in deciding who gets the tender, and he wasn’t there.

So we had to present, to 3 other guys, the executives, who would then convey their thoughts to the director. It wasn’t the same, and we were dismayed. After our presentation, we thanked them and left, knowing that luck wasn’t on our side and that the message from our presentation wouldn’t be conveyed to the director by the executives in a manner we would’ve liked. This promising 3 year contract we had a shot at was fast slipping away.

I called them up a few times after to ask for another meeting with the director, this time to present our pitch to him directly. I didn’t get any callbacks – I was desperate and so were my prayers. Each night, I had prayed for another opportunity. It was all I asked for. One day, a thought struck me, that instead of sitting around and waiting, I should go directly to the office, to create an opportunity for myself. Why not? There was nothing to lose.

So the very next day I went to the office, and just as I was walking to the entrance of the building, the director, the guy I needed to see, was walking out! So I stopped him on his way, and literally introduced myself and a short brief of what our company had to offer in less than 2 minutes. I think I must have made an impact and did a pretty decent job – he immediately scheduled in an appointment for us the very next day to give our team an opportunity to do our full presentation again! I was over the moon.

We did our presentation, and we nailed it. There were some negotiations on the quote, but after that was settled, we got the contract! The director was impressed with what we had to offer, and he did say that when his executives told him about our team, he was half-hearted and wasn’t very interested. He was glad we were able to present what we had to offer directly to him.

Sometimes we just need the right conditions to appear, and this time, I believe very much that it was because of my consistent prayers to Dorje Shugden that we got a second chance. I do not think that it would be so coincidental that all the right thoughts and conditions arose from sheer fate. I also reckon that I was blessed with the power of persuasive speech, to turn the mind of the director around! It definitely is the divine help and protection that my guiding light, Dorje Shugden, gave to me and I am eternally grateful for the boost He has given to my career.

  1. Marc I rejoice for you that you have benefitted from this. It is due to Je Tsongkhapa’s blessings I think that Dorje Shugden arose to be with us during this degenerate age. Je Tsongkhapa is a Buddha and for a buddha not to know about what Nechung was proposing to Duldzin to manifest many times in the future it unbelievable.

    And Duldzin for all intents and purposes was an equal to Je Tsongkhapa in terms of spiritual attainments.

    Not only that, Dorje Shugden practice is meant for much more than our worldly results and success. I do believe that if we rely on Dorje Shugden we will reach the highest states of spiritual attainments and development.

  2. Thank you for sharing your story with us Marc! I am happy that your spiritual practice brings you tangible results. In our modern world, nothing speaks louder than results and your example and sharing can offer others who face various worldly concerns a solution and salvation.

    I believe many of us have personally experienced the frustration and hopelessness of samsara that can eventually break our spirits. This is why I strongly believe that spiritual study and practice compliments and empowers all the things we do and that spirituality is not for the retired who can afford the time.

    On the contrary, if we take a step back, many successful business people, celebrities and leaders claims their spiritual practice to be their pillar of rock that they owe their accomplishments to.

    Therefore, speaking of timing, the “right time” to begin a spiritual journey is certainly NOW.

  3. Wow, what a nice sharing, thank you for that Marc. This clearly shows that Dorje Shugden not only helps in our spiritual needs, he sees to our worldly needs too so that we have the necessary conditions that we need for the benefit of our spiritual growth.

    Dorje Shugden gives hope to many. May his practise which is so apt for today’s time grow in leaps and bounds.

  4. Marc, thank you for sharing your interesting experience and definitely a good example of the right place at the right time. It is amazing how Protector Dorje Shugden help us in all kinds of occasions to have the right conditions for our practice. Some may say that we are suppose to renounce all materialism but in this times where many have families and financial stability is very much needed for us to have that peace of mind to practice. And with financial stability, we are able to support the Sangha and spiritual home. Enlightened Dorje Shugden can be fully relied on to know what is best for our Dharma practice and will grant us conditions accordingly. May the ban on Dorje Shugden practice be swiftly lifted to allow more people to receive his blessings and care.

  5. Thank you for sharing your experience with Dorje Shugden’s blessing.

    Dorje Shugden always comes to our assistance if we make the connection and have created the good karma and earned the merits to receive his assistance. He protects our mind and practice of Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings. He creates the conditions to ease our mind and have the conditions to practice.

    Rejoice for you that you have done your part in connecting with Dorje Shugden and have the karma and merits to receive his assistance.

  6. I often heard people’s prayers were heard and their wishes came true. Dorje Shugden is said to be the protector of our time which means we have the closest karma with him at this time to practice and him. This doesn’t mean another protector is not efficient, just that at this degenerate time we have the closest affinity with Dorje Shugden.

    If we do our part diligently Dorje Shugden will able to help us. Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector and would help us as long as we continue to benefit others.

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.
