How beautiful a teaching! You taught us a lot about guru devotion just by explaining how you first encountered Shugden... So blessed.

    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…

    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…

    1 week, 4 days 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…

    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…

    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…

    3 weeks, 5 days 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…

    3 weeks, 6 days 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…

    3 weeks, 6 days 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…

    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…

    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…

    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…
