Buddha images with accurate iconography are very important as they are a physical manifestation of the holy energy of the Buddha. Through Buddha statues, we are able to make a connection with the Three Jewels. Therefore, Buddha images are considered a blessing because they can plant the seeds of Dharma in the minds of those who set eyes on them, circumambulate around them or have physical contact with them.
Buddha images that are energised with the sincere, pure and consistent Dharma practice of great Dharma masters are extremely precious. In addition to their holy form, these images offer practitioners the blessings of the masters that they belonged to, and the Dharma they practised.
For instance, this image of Dorje Shugden is a rare example of such a holy statue. It belonged to the previous Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang and is currently housed in the private prayer hall of Trijang Ladrang in Shar Gaden Monastery.
Dorje Shugden was the Dharma Protector that Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche held close to his heart throughout his life. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche had great faith in Dorje Shugden, as illustrated when he arranged for a trusted attendant to seek advice from an oracle of Dorje Shugden pertaining to the escape of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama from Tibet to India.
