A Safe Haven

Dear Sir or Madam:

We go through so much hell, finding and maintaining our relationships. I went through a divorce several years back. He was my first true love or so it seemed. One day I caught him cheating on me and I just kind of spiraled down. I turned to drinking and in my drunken stupor I slit my wrist, my brothers discovered me in time to send me to the hospital. I still did not remember that incident well but when I came out from the hospital I realized there was something really wrong with my life.

I knew I needed to seek for help, I went to every temple, church, synagogue looking for how to find some answers to resolution to my unhappiness. I chanted every mantra, prayer I could get my hands on, still nothing offered any respite until I chanted ‘OM BENZA WIKI VITRANA SOHA’. My mind just became quiet all of the sudden, all the anguish was sucked away. That was a turning point for me, as it allowed me to have a safe haven everytime my mind became too heavy and convoluted with too much thinking. The divorce still went through but I was able to carry on life and function normally and even look forward to a better future. Thank you Dharmapala.

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.
