    4 days, 4 hours ago

    Namka Barzin is a protector by his own right. There is no right or wrong, and reciting his prayers would definitely invoke the blessings of his promise to aid sincere practitioners. However, his function as a Dharma Protector is mainly focused on protecting monasteries and dharma institutes. In my opinion,…

    Dear Jane Vanco, Dorje Shugden has 5 emanations, and one of his emanation known as Dorje Shugden Gyenze functions to specifically grant practitioners both inner (spiritual) and outer (material) wealth. You can find out more about Gyenze here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/dorje-shugden-gyenze-to-increase-life-merits-and-wealth I personally know and heard many genuine stories of people receiving…

    4 days, 5 hours ago

    Dear Shunsuke Takahashi, it is possible to recite the prayers without doing the physical offering, however such action is usually reserved for those who have attained great meditational stability. For regular practitioners, it is always advisable to have a physical offering set up on the altar as it is also…

    I believe the image of Tara is similar, both Tara and Cittamani Tara. But the practice by itself is different. Commonly Tara tantra belong to Kriya Tantra, which is lower tantra; but Cittamani Tara is an Anuttarayoga Tantra, which is higher tantra. Tsem Rinpoche have written extensively about Cittamani Tara…

    Very beautiful painting. She looks very much like Green Tara. Iconographically, how can we distinguish Cittamani Tara from Green Tara? Thanks!

    Hannah, You could recite Medicine Buddha mantra TAYATHA OM BEKANZE BEKANZE MAHA BEKANZE BEKANZE RANZA SAMUGATHEY SOHA. Dorje Shugden also has a healing mantra, OM BENZA WIKI BITANA AYU SIDDHI HUNG. You could do this too. Hope it helps

    I'm going for surgery next week, its not serious but I'm a little scared about operations. They need to use general anesthetic during the surgery. Is there there any particular practice I can do, mantras to chant, that can make the surgery go successful and without anything bad happening?
