And then another point is sectarian. Follower of this spirit, for example, among the yellow hat sect who worship this, there are stories, anyone who keep even text from other tradition in his or her room, this spirit will harm you, that kind of thing. So sectarian sort of practice very strong.  Therefore my approach is promotion of non-sectarian.  I myself receive teaching from all different Tibetan Buddhist sect, like that.  Some some of them very, very critical. Some even describe me as the destroyer of  the Buddhadharma (laughs) okay....so anyway that expression they are using, freedom of expression, so welcome, very good.



IS THIS REALLY TRUE.


Dalai Lama composed a prayer text to Dorje Shugden indicating he is enlightened and once enlightened one doesn't regress, one doesn't go backward in attainment. Therefore if one get disturbs by doing keeping the text as mentioned above it must be other form of spirits who are obstacles to our spiritual progress.

What made the 5th Dalai Lama compose the following beautiful prayer?

HUM
Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
I invite you with faith, please come to this place!


Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinocerous leather hat,
Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
Who subdues the mamo’s of the charnal grounds, praise to you!


Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
Favorite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
Provide the good and avert the bad!
Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!


Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
Always protect us with the Three Jewels
!

Even the composition of this short praise and propitiation brought benefit. Thus, although undisputed great Tantric masters tried to subdue him by burning him in the fire through their rituals, his display of miraculous power only grew greater. (from ‘Music Delighting the Oceans of Protectors’, page 105).

How can an emanation of Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion make an error? First, he wrote this beautiful prayer and then many incarnations later realized its a mistake? Are Buddhas enlightened? I am very sure they are not silly like myself.
