Why Worry?

Though I met my Lama almost 20 years ago, I only reconnected to him a few years later during a chance encounter at a restaurant. I remember I folded my hands to him; he did not say much but asked his assistant to take down my particulars. I was reconnected again!

At one point, I wanted to do some business as I had some spare cash from the contract work that I was doing then. At the same time, it was a difficult time for my Lama as he also had financial difficulties. We decided to do a business venture together so that proceeds could also go towards supporting my Lama’s Dharma work.

At around that time, the Protector took trance through my Lama and advised me to study the Lamrim. I complied to the request as I liked to read anyway.

Six months into the business, things started to not work out: I didn’t listen to advice, wanted to do things my way and a host of other things came about to upset things. Sleeping was getting more and more difficult.

Then, somehow, I remembered the stuff I had learnt about karma from reading the Lamrim and Shantideva’s quote also came into mind: ‘If you can do something about it, why worry? If you can’t do something about it, why worry?’ From then, I relied on the Dharma to pull me through difficult times, thanks to the Protector’s advice.

On another occasion, I was once at my Lama’s residence, trying to do some work. I remember I was suffering from a fever at the time and was literally shivering from chills and sickness. Just then, I thought of my Lama and Protector as one, chanted a few mantras and almost immediately, the fever subsided. I know my body very well – when I start to get flu-like symptoms, it doesn’t go away just like that. The symptoms always turn into a full-blown flu before I can recover!

Just recently, I was feeling really exhausted and felt like I was falling ill again. I needed to do something which my Lama had asked me to do and, not wanting to disappoint him, really did not wish to get ill at this crucial moment! So, I thought of my Lama and Protector as one again and the illness did not manifest into a flu as it normally does. I managed to complete what I needed to do!

  1. Wonderful!!! There are so many life stories and experiences with Dorje Shugden. It is interesting and nice to read. Thanks to DS Teams for posting such an informative stories. I like it!

    My the readers benefit from the testimonials.

  2. Thank you for sharing your story with us. i guess we tend to like doing things our own way and it is only when we meet with obstacles that we examine what had been advised earlier. Protector Dorje Shugden is enlightened and therefore has the clairvoyance to the future. If we place our trust in him fully, then we will save ourselves a lot of pain from wrong decisions or actions. It is great to read of your experience that also confirms the accuracy of Lord Dorje Shugden’s advises.

  3. This is really interesting. I never really thought from your angle before. when I felt like when I was falling sick, I always resort to strong medications so that I can finish what I have to do.

    Thank you for sharing this as I know now that I did not have enough faith in my Lama and Protector. Sometimes, it’s from sharing like this that open our eyes to what some of our problems are.

    This website is great for having testimonials like yours.

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.
