I started practising Dorje Shugden in January 2015 as part of my daily sadhana along with Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. My experience is that Dorje Shugden is really quick to assist me when it comes to spiritual practice. Dorje Shugden assists me in learning Dharma and reminding me to learn Dharma as well as keeping up with my daily sadhana. When I read Dorje Shugden’s biography, my faith in the Guru and Dharma increases.
There will be times when trouble arises and my mind will be swayed up and down and I just feel so down that I can’t even do my practice. Usually, after two or three days I will be “reminded” to continue my practice instead of just staring at my troubles. I will feel encouraged and calm by the time I finish reciting Dorje Shugden’s mantra. I also get very enthusiastic about reading Dharma books.
Dorje Shugden also assists me financially, particularly in providing resources to supplement my spiritual practice. So far, I have been able to acquire many ritual items and also items for my altar such as wealth vases, ritual instruments, tsatsas, offerings and more, and even received pendants and tsatsas as gifts from kind friends. With Dorje Shugden, all things related to spiritual practice can be gained more easily.
On another occasion, Dorje Shugden helped me in my English proficiency test. I was applying to study for my Masters degree abroad and one of the requirements was to obtain the required score for the IELTS English proficiency test. I studied up, prepared for it and gave it a shot in early August 2015. I went for my test and I was shaking, surrounded by anxiety during the whole test session. Needless to say I failed the first attempt. It was not a surprise because I am naturally not so bright academically or linguistically. Then, I planned another shot at the test and took a month to prepare prior to commencing the second test.
This time, I did a lot of Manjushri Ganglongma and Dorje Shugden practice with serkym offerings before the test. I was able to undertake the second test with less anxiety and was also able to think clearly during the whole session. Unfortunately, I was not able to complete the writing section as I was out of time.
I came out of the exam doubting that I would be able to pass. The results would only come out in two weeks and during that time, I just prayed to Dorje Shugden to get the minimum score. Eventually I received my results and, surpassing my expectations, it exceeded the required minimum!
Now I am in the midst of applying for a scholarship for my studies and of course, I will continue with my practice. Whatever the outcome, I surrender to Dorje Shugden as I believe his wisdom will benefit me in the long term.
