Strong Connections

After receiving Dorje Shugden’s practice from my guru, I read extensively about him to know more about who he is, did his prayers and made offerings to him. As I understood more about this Protector, my faith in him grew stronger. I have come to rely very much on him as my Protector, who I believe is one with my Guru.

Over time, I have felt that Dorje Shugden has always been at my side guiding and protecting me. There have been many instances throughout my life where I believe Dorje Shugden was instrumental in helping me along, even if I didn’t think much about how it happened at the time.

After receiving this practice, all went quite well until one day, due to extenuating circumstances, I could not continue my practice in the Dharma centre of my first Guru. However, my faith in this Guru, who was in a faraway country, and Dorje Shugden has never waned and I was determined to continue my practice on my own regardless of the circumstances.

A short while after this happened, through a chance meeting, I met another Guru from the same lineage, who practiced the same Protector as my first Guru and who lived just minutes away from me! It was unbelievable. I never thought such a teacher even existed in my country and there he was, right at my doorstep, fully qualified and full of compassion, like an emanation of my first Guru. Most of all, I felt a strong connection to him and could relate to him as my Guru immediately.

The rest is history. I have studied under this teacher whom I have held as my Guru ever since. On hindsight, I do not think what happened was a coincidence. I strongly believe that it was Dorje Shugden who arranged this most conducive condition for my spiritual path and I will always be grateful to him. I have been most fortunate to have met within one lifetime two Gurus who practice Dorje Shugden. In my heart, both of them are equal and I will forever be indebted to them for guiding me in my Protector practice.

Due to your strong faith in Dorje Shugden and continual of his practice even when you could not be with your first Guru, Dorje Shugden in his promise to protect the precious teachings of Lama Tsongkapa must have seen your sincerity. In sending you another Guru, he is fulfilling his promise and your learning a propitiation of Lama Tsongkapa’s teachings. You are indeed most fortunate to have met with two equally attained Gurus in this lifetime. May Dorje Shugden continue to bless you in your Dharma practice.

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.
