    Hello,

    I the mantra for increase on your web page (OM BENZA WIKI BITANA PUNYE SIDDHI HUNG) connected with the main form of Dorje Shugden or is it connected with Gyenze?

    And what is the particular quality/activity or benefit of Dorje Shugdens main form, Duldzin, in relation to his other emanations such as Trakze? - When is this main form, Duldzin, invoked and called upon as compared to Trakze being a wrathful form to protect from danger and black magic? And is it a "peaceful" form?

    Thank you for the patience.

      Dear Ken,

      The mantra Om Benza Wiki Bitana Shatrum Maraya Phet is not the mantra of Trakze, or another form of Dorje Shugden. This mantra invokes the main form of Dorje Shugden but with the main focus of the destruction of obstacles, and inner and outer enemies. Inner enemies here refers to emotions and thoughts that lead ourselves and others to suffering. Outer enemies here refers to situations that cause ourselves and others suffering.

      Trakze's mantra is Om Benza Wiki Bitana Rakya Rakya Hung. You can read more about Trakze's practice here:http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/dorje-shugden-trakze-to-dispel-black-magic-spirits. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    So it will be a false allegation if I mention that your community help people by financially those who follow Dorjee shugden. Because I saw in my life that many people who follow Dorjee shugden bless by wealth and success. It just a question my intention is not to hurt your sentiments and pointing towards your respected community.

      Dear Gejor,

      Thank you for your question. As I mentioned in an earlier reply, any Dharma organisation or even normal practitioner of the Buddha's teachings seeks to help others in whatever means they can, sometimes this can take the form of financial aid, but mostly it comes in the form of care and compassion. Such as helping those who are ill, who have passed away, their families, providing emotional and spiritual support during the times people are suffering in their lives. This is exactly what a family would do. In fact within the teachings as taught by Shantideva, there are meditations in which we contemplate on the kindness of our mother and then extend that to those people who are close to us, and then to every sentient being. This generates the strong feeling of love and compassion towards all beings. This results in our working tirelessly to aid beings as best we can, in whichever way they would need.

      The blessings of Dorje Shugden bestowing things like wealth and success on people is not dependent on what organisation you belong to. It is dependent on practicing the Buddha's teaching, and making a connection with the divine beings such as Dorje Shugden. His practice is so much more than one that provides you with success in life, but also protection from spirits, healing, creating conditions so that you can practice Buddhism properly and as an emanation of Manjushri can help you to develop wisdom as well.

      Our sentiments are not hurt, please do not worry. We just wanted to share that Dorje Shugden's practice is so much more than gaining wealth and success. I hope this answer helps you.

      Thank you.

      Dear Tenzin,

      Thank you for your question. You don't need to be under our roof to be blessed with success, wealth and happy life. If you practice the Buddhist path sincerely, transform your mind to be more compassionate and wise, and help other to the best of your ability, you will be blessed. The Dharma we practice comes from the great monasteries of Tibet, and in turn the Dharma from there stems back to Buddha Shakyamuni. If you are practising any form of Buddhadharma that has a lineage back to the Buddhas and great masters, then if you engage in the practices sincerely, you will surely gain benefit. It is not about which Dharma centre or organisation you belong to, but the practices themselves. I hope this helps. Thank you.

      Dear Tenzin,

      It is the Buddhist way to help as many people as one can. Therefore, whether you join our community or organisation, If it is within our ability to help you in your problems in life, then we strive to do so. That is what it means to practice spirituality, to help alleviate another person's suffering. The Buddha taught to show compassion to all beings, regardless who they are. Therefore, we try to help as many people as we can. I hope that answers your question. Thank you.

      Dear A.A.

      Thank you for your question. The 6th Panglung Kuten was actually not a monk but a layman, the lineage of the Panglung Oracles was passed to his son, the 7th Panglung Kuten who is himself a monk. In fact it was the 6th Panglung Kuten who gave the Dalai Lama the advice to leave Tibet, via Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. There is not much about his life written in English, but you may find some useful information here:http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/panglung-ritroe-the-rising-house-of-power.html. This article is about the re-establishment of Panglung Ritroe, or the hermitage of the Panglung Oracles. I hope this helps. Thank you

      Dear Julia,

      Thank you for your questions. It is nice to hear that you will be going to Tibet in April. Unfortunate we are not aware of Lama Jampa Ngodup Wangchuk Rinpoche's schedule. You may want to contact his monastery or centre directly for more information. As for other Rinpoches, there are many in Tibet but we do not have all their plans for the year.

      Depending on where you live in the world, there may be lamas closer to you. Seeking an audience with them might easier than meeting lamas from Tibet. You can search online for your nearest Tibetan Buddhist centre.

    Hello, is the mantra for Control as found in the mantra-section; om benza wiki bitana washam kuru ho, the same mantra as the one in the Wangze-practice? Or is this mantra for Control for another form or Dorje Shugden?

      Hello Kenneth,

      Yes the "control" mantra of Dorje Shugden is the same as in the Wangze practice. This is because Wangze is the control form of Dorje Shugden. He manifested in the form of Wangze with the primary function to "control". Even though Dorje Shugden has many types of mantras, this one corresponds to a particular form of Dorje Shugden, and that is the function of control. You can recite this prayer by visualising Dorje Shugden in his normal appearance or in the form of Wangze. If you are engaging in the Wangze practice however, then you should obviously visualise Wangze when you do the practice.

      In general, the Buddhas have four types of enlightened activity. These are pacifying, increasing, controlling and wrathful. Both the mantra and the practice of Wangze belong to the "control" aspect. You can read more about Wangze's practice here:http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/dorje-shugden-wangze-for-power-and-influence

      Dear Lily,

      I am very sorry to read about the problems you are going through. If you suspect that this is because of black magic, please engage in the practice of Trakze or better to get your son himself to engage in the practice if he is able to. Here is a link to the practice:http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/dorje-shugden-trakze-to-dispel-black-magic-spirits. The prayer text is included in the post, just click on the link and you can download the text. Even though he looks very wrathful, this is because Trakze arises from Dorje Shugden's compassion to help us. This is one of the most effective methods that i have come across to deal with black magic. Please read the post carefully and engage in the practice diligently. If the pain is really from black magic then it will help for sure.

      You can also sponsor a Trakze puja here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/trakze-puja-fund

      Or a Medicine Buddha puja here for healing, health and wellbeing: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/medicine-buddha-puja-fund

      I hope this helps. Please write back with more information if you need to so we can give more advice if needed.

    And was wondering if it would be possible to camp on your land for the night? We plan on arriving the 24th but it may change. If you do allow us to stay on your land for the night then I'll let you know if that date has changed.

    I guess by us I mean my wife and our little boy (he is 2.5 years old).

    I am a Buddhist but somewhat new to the practice. We well gladly help out with what ever you would like done around the temple.

    Dear Ven pastor,

    I am struggling really badly at work with very bad workplace politics. I have all my life go the extra mile to help others (obvious to colleagues below the authority levels) but not to the bosses.

    Even now one of my supportive boss refused to reply my calls/emails for support against vindictive and malicious elements at work.

    I am a simple man who just want a peaceful life. I have given up on recognition long time ago. The risks of potential loss of career is compunded by my awareness of having 2 young dependent children in my family.

    I have started the purification ritual and Dharma protector but mentally it is painful and difficult to concentrate in my saddened state of mind.

    Is it too late for this current problem for the purification and Dharma protector roles to make a difference? Is there anything specifically I can do to resist my superiors who are really trying to adversely impact on my profession?

    Thank you

      Dear Anonymous,

      Thank you for your question. I am sorry to read that you are having such a difficult time at work. It is never too late to engage in purification practices and Dharma protector practices to make a difference. They will always be of benefit. These practices help you deal with problems in life by alleviating you of negative situations. However since all that we go through in life is based on karma, some situations will take a longer time for us to see change. For example, some of the situations we are go through in life could be due to very strong karma from previous lives, therefore it takes us a longer period of time using these practices to see change. The more you practice, the more the karma will be purified causing these situations to arise. They key here to be consistent in your practice, and you will definitely see a change.

      At the same time, since these situations are caused by karma, we should not add more negative karma to it. We should instead do the exact opposite, which is to be kind to and benefit others. The force of positive karma and spiritual merit can actually overcome the effects of negative karma until it is completely purified. Another method you can do, is to engage in retreats, where you engage in the practices intensively. This provides a boost to your spiritual practice and the purification of the negative karma is sped up.

      In this specific case, you should continue your practices and you will definitely see an improvement in your situation. The other thing you should do is contemplate on the suffering that your superiors are going through. They act in the way they do because of their own karma and how it has affected their minds to act and behave in negative ways. Rather than be angry or annoyed at them, you should meditate on the fact that they are that way because of their own negative karma. When you develop compassion for them, because this is virtuous, this will speed up the process of the purification of negative karma. I hope this helps.

      Thank you
