Yidam helps one to gain enlightenment quickly becos there is veins, subtle wind and droplets practise.and there is self and complete generation. Whereas dharmapala sadhana do not have it.

Dharmapala is basis of protection, Yidam is basis of enlightenment and Guru is basis of blessing. Guru is basis of blessing because of transformation of your body, speech and mind to 3 kaya of Buddha. Without Yidam, one cannot attain enlightenment. Although Yidam and Dharmapala are manifestation of Guru, but they have their specific purpose. Hence, Dharmapala cannot be treated as Yidam, because Dharmapala specific purpose is to protect Dharma and practitioners.

H.E. Tsem Tulku has returned the Dharmapala Methar and the female Dharmapala Shangmo Dorje Putri back into Dorje Shugden's retinue.

Maybe it is now time for Rinpoche to help make the Buddha Dorje Shugden a "YIDAM" for all of us.

Please Tsem Tulku Rinpoche help make Buddha Dorje Shugden our "YIDAM"!!

Tsem Tulku gave Dorje Shugden as a YIDAM practice to some of his students so claims Pastor David Lai.

He stated this in his Youtube video of August 10, 2021 titled, "Once Upon A Time With Rinpoche - Rinpoche's Personal Yidam Pt 6".

Here is the link to that video and please go to the 11:00 minute mark. It is roughly 45 seconds long.

Rinpoche also wrote about this at dorjeshugden.com on December 16, 2013 titled "Dharma Demystified: Dorje Shugden As A Yidam".

Here is the link to his article at https://www.dorjeshugden.com/all-articles/features/dharma-demystified-dorje-shugden-as-a-yidam/

I also wrote about this on this website on July 02,2016 and it was titled "Dorje Shugden is a "YIDAM" ??"

Here is the link to my article http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=5609.0

So now we know that we can practice Dorje Shugden as our YIDAM since Tsem Rinpoche approved this practice for some of his students.

Thank you Rinpoche for this great teaching about Dorje Shugden can now be our YIDAM PRACTICE!!

Pray for Rinpoche's swift return

For Tsem Tulku to give his students  Dorje Shugden as a Yidam Practice he had to have created a formal Dorje Shugden SADHANA.

Could someone contact David Lai to ask him about this Dorje Shugden SADHANA?

Pastor David Lai clears states that Rinpoche considered Dorje Shugden a YIDAM PRACTICE and gave that practice as a SADHANA to some of his students.

He states this on the video at around the 3:35 minute mark.

Pastor David Lai stated, "Dorje Shugden is a Dharma Protector but Rinpoche has recommended some people to take that practice, the deity (Dorje Shugden) as their YIDAM".
