  • Vinnie on Recommendation books before retreats
    16 hours, 19 minutes ago

    Hi Sophia, As for the books on what books you should read before the retreats, I am not too sure about it. However, in this blog there is an article that you can read about before engaging in a Dorje Shudgen retreat. In the article it has written in details…

    16 hours, 24 minutes ago

    I was just wondering if there is any book that you fellow dharma brothers and sisters will recommend before anyone engages in retreats. I am from the Gelug tradition and I am thinking to do a Tsongkhapa, Manjushri, Tara and Dorje Shugden practices. Is there any book that I should…

  • sophia on Hinduism and Buddhism together
    16 hours, 31 minutes ago

    Hi Kiran, I think there is no problems to have the statue of Dorje Shugden being placed on the same altar as the Hindu Gods. I have a few friends that have placed these deities on the same altar and to pray to them at the same time, they have…

  • Vinnie on Dorje Shugden in other traditions
    17 hours, 19 minutes ago

    There are praises to Dorje Shudgen in the Sakya tradition. It is also evident that people of the Sakya tradition do Dorje Shugden practices although the way Dorje Shudgen is being depicted might be a little different. I will like to know if anyone know how is Dorje Shugden being…

  • Vinnie on Namka Bardzin
    17 hours, 40 minutes ago

    Dear Leean, Like what Lew has said, I do not think that through practising Namkar Bardzin practices it will help you to "sort out" your colleague's behaviour. I will say that through the practice it will give you more strength to push on and carry on with what is going…

    1 day, 3 hours ago

    What Beng Kooi have said to do of Medicine Buddha mantras or Shize mantras is really great. They are practices that are able to help us with our medical problems and for Shize practices is not just for the health, but can also calm energies that are around us. You…

    2 days, 5 hours ago

    I would just like to know that since Namkar Bardzin is actually the incarnation of a Geshe, is he fully enlightened? If he is not, why is it possible for us to be praying to him? I thought it is advisable to only pray to enlightened beings? If so, why…
