I feel that Dorje Shugden has looked after me. Some years ago I made a trip to New York City, with a small amount of money that had been donated to me for a mala that I had made. This was all I had for cash, and I wanted to bring something back with me that could benefit my practice. I made prayers to Dorje Shugden so that he could arrange the conditions for me to make my trip meaningful and beneficial for my Dharma practice. I spent some time looking for Dharma shops, but they all strangely happened to be closed.
On the last day of my trip I came across a shop while exploring the city. Inside the shop I found a statue of Je Tsongkhapa, in the area that the shopkeeper told me was 50% off. After purchasing the statue, the shopkeeper admitted to me that the statue was actually not on sale, but since it was placed in the wrong location he gave it to me half off as a gift. The Je Tsongkhapa statue had cost exactly what I had received for my mala. When I went to the bus station on my way home, I noticed a Tibetan monk walking past me. He seemed to smile at me knowingly. I’m convinced that Dorje Shugden arranged these conditions for me and sent the monk as a sign to help me deepen my faith in him.
I believe that Dorje Shugden’s practice is very helpful in averting physical illness or suffering. I have severe Celiac Disease, where the smallest amount of wheat is enough to make me deathly ill. I had been visiting my Grandmother for dinner, and she had prepared soup for me. She had mistakenly put wheat pasta in it, which I had not realised until after eating it. I was terrified, as I had never eaten this much wheat before and even smaller amounts had made me incredibly sick. The migraines I receive from eating wheat are the most painful thing I have ever experienced, and usually occur 12-24 hours after consuming wheat. At the very worst, I could end up in the hospital.
After eating the soup I tried making myself vomit, but I wasn’t able to. Terrified, I recited Dorje Shugden’s mantra as often as I could. I performed his sadhana many times. I had hoped that with Dorje Shugden’s blessings I could at the very least lessen the symptoms. Instead, my illness was averted completely. I was amazed, it defied all explanation. I know that it was Dorje Shugden’s blessings that pacified my illness. In my experience Dorje Shugden’s practice has always benefitted, never harmed. I am thankful for my experiences as they have helped me to deepen my faith in the Dharma.
