The Dorje Shugden World Peace Puja at Shar Ganden

The Torgya ritual is a Dorje Shugden puja usually performed just before the coming of the Tibetan New Year. Its function is not just limited to preventing negative energies and driving off energies of such a nature. The purpose of this puja also encompasses bringing about auspiciousness, prosperity, prevention of disasters and even to a certain extent, stopping the outbreak of conflicts in the form of war.

Attended by all the eminent and key lamas, including the tulkus and Geshes (or PhD holders), the crème of the crop of Shar Ganden monastery is assembled for this special puja. In addition to the monastic community, the event is attended by Tibetans from the surrounding area, as well as Indians and visitors from Mongolia, Singapore and the region.

While some lay people view the ritual merely as a festival, it is actually very potent due to the gathering of the best spiritual minds who are involved and the purity of the motivations behind the puja. World peace has a real opportunity to grow in people’s hearts and minds, especially when many spiritual beings with such pure motivations engage in the Torgya.

Venerable Zawa Tulku Rinpoche, as seen here in this video, is a constant and powerful supporter of Shar Ganden Monastery. He is based in Canada and travels to North America often, providing inspiration and support for spiritual practitioners in that region. Through his support, the Ganden lineage is preserved while he and other lamas based in the Americas carry on turning the wheel of Dharma.

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.
