  • Vinnie on Metal plate on the chest of Dorje Shugden's oracle
    2 months 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.…

  • Vinnie on Mantra Retreat
    2 months 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…

  • sarah on Metal plate on the chest of Dorje Shugden's oracle
    2 months ago

    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
    2 months 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

    2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hi, I was wondering if I can do a mantra retreat. I do not have a guru yet, nor a center close by to seek advice. Well not one that practices Dorje Shugden. Is it possible do with our a teachers blessings? Can I just specify an amount I wish…

    2 months, 3 weeks ago

    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…

    Thank you Vinnie and Sarah for your advices. Sarah, to answer your question, I have been having paranormal activities going on my house for about 4-5 years. But the past year, the attacks are getting stronger where by knifes will go missing for a moment then the next it will…

  • Sasha on Kache Marpo
    2 months, 3 weeks ago

    Thank you Sarah for sharing this with me. This had always been on my mind and I wanted to know this. However, through this it really reinforces the point that enlightened deities work in different miraculous ways. Will I be correct to say that with Kache Marpo being the Minister…

  • Kyle on Dorje Shugden in Tibet Amdo!!!!
    2 months, 3 weeks ago

    Thank you Vinnie for sharing with us this great news. It is clear evidence that Dorje Shugden is being practiced strongly in Tibet. Without the demand, it is almost impossible for there to have the demand to be making such big thangkas. To even have so many artists to be…

  • Vinnie Tan on Kache Marpo
    2 months, 3 weeks ago

    Thank you Sasha for the question! I was wondering about that as well. Sarah, what you said perfectly makes sense. We are limited by what we understand, yet we fail to remember that enlightened deities like Kache Marpo is able to emanate into many beings at the same time to…

    2 months, 3 weeks ago

    3 months ago

    Dorje Legpa does look a little similar but he is not Dorje Shugden.... well technically all Enlightened beings are one, and Dorje Legpa is believed to be the emanation of Heruka. As for your question, Dorje Shugden in the Sakya tradition is depicted a little different, as he rides a…

  • sarah on Kache Marpo
    3 months ago

    Dear Sasha, Kache Marpo, being the emanation of Hayagriva (which is the wrathful form of Avalokiteshvara) is an enlightened Dharma Protector. Due to his enlightened nature, his works and reach are limitless. He is not bound to only his own original function but can emanate to have various functions according…

    Dear Natasha, I'm sorry to hear about the difficulties you're facing but relief that you have managed to find this website for some spiritual help. Dorje Shugden's protection is undoubtedly very powerful. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche have a student who hosts a Paranormal series called The Paranormal Zone. Due to the…

  • Vinnie on Recommendation books before retreats
    3 months 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…

  • sophia on Recommendation books before retreats
    3 months 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…

    3 months 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
    3 months 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…
