    Oh, dear, this sounds like an experience I had shortly after starting the Dorje Shugden practice. Though I can't say that I experience spirit disturbances, I've had my share of scary moments. I just had uneasy feelings around the house at night, there would be weird movements caught out of…

    2 weeks, 3 days ago

    Well, from the discussion from the other topic, Top 5 favourite Buddhist books? http://www.dorjeshugden.org/discussions/topic/top-5-favourite-buddhist-books, it seems that Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book “Introduction to Buddhism” is a very good book to read before, during and after a retreat. From the comments, it sounded like it is simple enough not to send…

    As pointed out by Sarah in another topic of discussion, Hinduism and Buddhism together -http://www.dorjeshugden.org/discussions/board/buddhas-and-buddhism It was said that, during Lama Atisha’s trip to Tibet from India, everytime Lama Atisha manifested a downfall, he would stop the whole convoy, got out of his carriage and shouted at the top of…

    Thank you, Sarah, this really makes sense, that keeping the practice secret helps us in practicing humility. That in itself, will ensure that there is no wrong motivation for wishing to have the practice.
    If we start with the wrong motivation, then there will be no result from the practice.

    These are some pictures of the deities that are not the standard images we see on religious websites. Are they acceptable as images for the altar or are they just beautiful art? Like the case of the standing Manjushri, there is the flaming sword in the right hand, and the…

    5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Thank you Sarah for the explanation. It does make great sense that the metal plate acts like a mirror for the oracles to see into the future. Like what is said, I do see these plates on oracles for other deities as well when they are in their oracle clothing.…

    5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Dear Kyle, To answer your questions, it is possible to do the mantra retreat without a teacher's blessing. This will mean that you will have to come up with the number/goal of mantras to finish within a specific time frame. An example is that you want to do a weekend…

    The metal plate worn by Dorje Shugden oracle is not unique, but something worn by most oracles when they take trance. For example, the Nechung oracle uses this metal plate as well. This metal plate is known as thungs kyi me long aka divination mirror. The tradition of this mirror…

  • Kyle on Metal plate on the chest of Dorje Shugden's oracle
    5 months, 4 weeks ago

    Hi,

    Can someone please explain to me what does the metal plate that Dorje Shugden oracles wear mean? What does that signify and why does the oracle always hit the metal plate on his chest? What does that mean?

    Please explain the significance to it.

    Thank you
    Kyle

    Totally agree with Taylor. If anyone has the link to the teaching the online version, please share with all of us here so that we are able to see it as well. I just cannot wait to see the teaching. I hope that it will be posted soon.

    Hi Sarah, Thank you for your explanation. It did helped me a lot. I never knew that Dorje Legpa is the emanation of Heruka. I always thought that Dorje Legpa is a mountain spirit that was subdued and bound to help protect the Buddhadharma. It is just really cool like…
