Lineage

With deep faith I prostrate to you, Vajradhara Dorje Shugden. Although you have already attained the Buddha-ground and engage in the twenty-seven deeds of a Buddha, you appear in various forms to help the Buddhadharma and sentient beings. You have manifested in different aspects as Indian and Tibetan Masters, such as Manjushri, Mahasiddha Biwawa, Sakya…

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.
