Here are just a handful of the countless messages we have received about how Dorje Shugden has helped people like you, as well as messages of thanks to the Lamas who have connected them with this powerful enlightened deity.
Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, but my english isn't good enough, i'll send you my unconditionally love, a big big hug and i thank you so much for all your love , peace and compassion that you send out in this world, THANK YOU
Thank you so much Rinpoche that you are giving us great chance to learn about Dharma Dorje Shugden. We are very far from our family relatives. When we practise Dorje Shugden, it is like we have got everything. We never feel sad because of Dorje Shugden's protection.
One day I asked to Dorje Shugden what I want then I pray after that. Finally he gave me. I want in nepal also got Dorje Shugden temple. People come and pray. What we learned let us teach others.
I will continue keeping practice Dorje Shugden. I think in the world many types of men, everyone have different mind, different religion, different choice. but my choice is Dorje Shugden.
Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing your thoughts and we can learn so much from Rinpoche on the compassion and kindness Rinpoche has shown us towards the needy ones, the commitments and determinations of Rinpoche to share the teachings of Dorje Shugden. I pray for Rinpoche's long life, healthy and safe always. Is really our blessings to have known and learned from Rinpoche's teachings.
Not only do I like what you say. I like how you say it. You’re clear and sensitive. Thank you, I’m also a practitioner of Dorje Shugden.I’m in love with Manjushri.
Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful teaching on Wangze , looking forward to start the practice.
Dear Rinpoche, thank you for this wonderful article all about Wangze practice. I think i will start practicing Wangze as well, and I am sure it will help me with my monkey mind to come under control. Dorje Shugden himself has countless benefits to any one who develops faith in him.
Thank you Rinpoche_/\_
Like to thank you for teachings on Dorje Shugden, and it's benefiting us thousands of miles away.. From your teachings I not only learnt great details about Dorje Shugden and also got faith and hope towards this great Protector.
When I see Dorje Shugden get trance thru an Oracle it gives me so much hope and security that Dorje Shugden is so real, Living among us somewhere.. not a man made myth..
Thank you Rinpoche _/\_ _/\_ _/\_
Thank you to Rinpoche and team for this great teaching on Dorje Shugden and practice. I have learnt lot of from these videos and it is real blessing. Thank you again.. Om benza wiki bitana Soha. _/\_ _/\_ _/\_
Dear Tsem Rinpoche, I have finally had an opportunity to watch Part 1 of your 4-Part series: Dorje Shugden: My side of the story. I want to thank you. It really touched my heart, and moved me for so many reasons. There is much I could say, since you and I share some of the same Teachers, but for that I will pray to some day be able to contact you personally. Thank you for your immense kindness.
Personally I experience Dorje Shugden is a Enlightened being. Since I start practicing Dorje Shugden my life changing into something remarkable, since I start praying I was slowly start to pushed to do Dharma work, helping monks, giving dana regularly, animal liberation, meditation, peace in my mind and etc etc etc spiritual things. These things happen after I start praying to Dorje Shugden, before nothing,
Later I understood Dorje Shugden want me to accumulate lots of merits and same time purify my karma, it is clear to me his Enlighten mind.. until now I didn’t receive any worldly things from him…because he is a Enlightened being he is preparing me for long run..
Dorje Shugden came to my life in very difficult period of my life and I was expected from him worldly things that decaying but he start to giving me things that I can take to my future life, for better rebirth.. these are all spiritual gifts I receiving day to day daily..
best part I want to thank him is he helping and guiding me to purify my negative karma daily. People out there who is going through very difficult period , pray and ask help from Dorje Shugden, he will help you...and you will experience him and his loving kindness.. as I feel now... tq...metta
Tsem Rinpoche thank you so much for sharing your videos and constantly updating your blog. Through your videos, I have learned and gained so much. Your videos have also helped me tremendously during the times of need. Thank you so much for also sharing the Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo trance in Kechara. Very rare footage and well translated too. Thank you so much! I pray for your long, happy and healthy life. With much respect from Canada!!
Tsem Rinpoche is so very kind to provide this practice to all of us. We should never limit how Buddha can help us and extend our help to us. Many people I am sure would have benefitted from Gyenze’s help, and Gyenze have lifted them up from their financial and health doldrums.
Thank you Rinpoche for making the teachings public. You did not need to, but you did. I have received many benefits from attending and doing the Dorje Shugden pujas for just these 2 months. With folded hands I humbly thank you, may Rinpoche live long to continue to spread dharma and happiness.
Amazing, thank you. Watching the video gave me a very special feeling and I developed a very peaceful mind and generated strong Bodhichitta. There is no doubt I received the wisdom blessings of Protector Dorje Shugden. Thank You so much for sharing this auspicious ceremony with all living beings.
Thank you Tsem Tulku this is awesome! This video is very beneficial in showing the whole world the truth about the Peaceful nature of the Dharma Protector King Duldzin Dorje Shugden.
How blessed it is to have the opportunity to see the entire process of the trance with such clarity and quality. My sincere thanks to the filming team who brought all this to us outside of Malaysia!
It is significant to have received Dharma from the Protector himself. His choice of delivering Dharma instead of answering personal questions is a lesson to us to prioritise our grounded study and practice of the Dharma, and to live our lives in accordance to the laws of cause and effect, rather than only focusing on ourselves (my questions need to be answered, my problems need to be solved). It truly is the Protector showing us the way, and is what Rinpoche himself always teaches us.
The fact that Choejela visited under directions of the Protector shows that we are in good hands and that Kechara is doing meaningful grounded work as a Dharma organization. Truly touched and blessed to be able to receive Rinpoches’s teachings and have access to all this knowledge despite living outside Malaysia.
May you live long and have good health, Rinpoche, and continue bringing the blessings of the Gurus and Buddhas to us.
Thank you Rinpoche, for sharing this. I sincerely wish Rinpoche a long life so that he may benefit even more people as KFR expands in the near future. I feel blessed to have watched/received a dharma talk by an enlightened being. It was truly a rare and special moment.
From the bottom of my heart Thank you to everyone who made this possible. I will pray that all of Kechara’s works will flourish and that it will one day become a peace center for the world.
It is great in today’s world that these rare occasions can be shared with people online. I was crying while watching the beginning. So much can be felt through the video, can’t even imagine if I was there. Thank you again Rinpoche and team for making this possible.
It is really pleasant to see that we can have the privilege to get to see the Protector Dorje Shugden in trance.
I have been waiting for years to see a live trance and finally on the 21st of June the wish came true.
I really feel proud to be in Kechara House as it is the first time that non Tibetans did the Rituals and invocation prayers without the help of any Tibetan monks.
We are also lucky that Kache Marpo stayed even longer to give a Dharma Talk. According to Rinpoche, Kache marpo said that he would answer the questions another day when it is more private. Of course not many people would bother about a Q and A session so that is possibly why Kache Marpo gave a Dharma talk instead of answering Rinpoche’s questions.
Remember over 700 people managed to recieve blessings from Dorje Shugdens main minister. Also 700 people recieved teachings directly from Kache Marpo.
All that would not have been possible without Rinpoche and of course the sponsors, thus I thank Rinpoche and all the sponsors for making the whole event possible.
It is such a privilege and blessing to be able to volunteer in the preparations for the trance. The learning is vast and, most importantly, authentic as it is passed down from our lineage masters and personally taught to us by our Guru Tsem Rinpoche and also the 7th Panglung Kuten.
The blessing of working and serving others in the Dharma does not only create the opportunity for us to receive the blessings from Dorje Shugden, but also gives us the chance to gift our loved ones something truly precious: the rare opportunity to have audience with a Buddha. I was very grateful that my family and friends from Malaysia and other parts of the world were present.
We often wonder what we can really do for our loved ones in a manner we confidently say will benefit them and help them. Dharma is the answer and on 21 July 2015, 700 people received the greatest gift of their lifetime because of the hard work and commitment of dharma warriors like Beng Kooi, Su Ming, Pastor Yek Yee etc.
I have attended a trance of Dorje Shugden in the past but never received a Dharma teaching directly from Him. That is truly awesome. I remember Rinpoche once explained that one of the signs we know that Dorje Shugden is an uncommon protector is that he is able to give Dharma teachings in a peaceful form. This must stem from Dorje Shugden’s many lifetimes as a great Dharma master who expounded the Dharma in all 10 directions.
Witnessing the trance and the long duration Dorje Shugden is able to remain with us through Chojila shows me the benefit of having a Dharma Protector that takes on a worldly form that is “closer” to our time. This reiterates why Dorje Shugden is the perfect protector of our time.
Thank you Rinpoche for this valuable experience and blessing!
While trying to find a local buddhist meditation group in my area, I happened upon a website that is connected to Ligmincha Int'l. It is a Bon sect claiming to be the oldest form of Tibetan Buddhism. I searched for a connection with Dorje Shugden and came across a page that had terribly negative comments about him. It said that he was a demon spirit, vengeful and capricious with evil intent, the ghost spirit of an evil king not to be trusted. His practice was discouraged for he would not be helpful. Naturally, I was upset. They also intimated that he appealed to Westerners who didn't know any better. I do not think that the page I got this from was directly connected to the above-mentioned organization. However, it did make me pause because I am new to all of this and don't know how judge it all. Can you offer any
reassurance? Thank you
It's nice to see you here again. Bon is actually the pre-Buddhist religion of Tibet. The first and oldest Tibetan Buddhist sect is actually known as the Nyingma tradition, which basis a lot of its teachings on the life and works of Guru Rinpoche. There are four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism, the Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug. As far as I am aware, the Bon tradition incorporated Buddhist elements over time as it came into contact with these four schools.
Fundamentally however, Bon philosophy is Tibetan in origin, whereas Buddhist philosophy and practice is Indian in origin as that is where Buddhism actually came from. Whereas Buddhist teachings trace back to Buddha Shakyamuni, Bon teachings trace back to a figure known as Tonpa Sherab. All Buddhist schools, as the name of the religion suggests trace their origins back to the historical Buddha. But Bon does not. That does not make Bon an negative tradition in any way. It is a religion in and of itself which should be respected, but from a logical angle is not Buddhist in origin.
Now, some people may say that Dorje Shugden is an evil being, or a spirit. In your comment, you mention that he is the ghost of an evil king. This is certainly not true, and this is clear from his previous life, in which he was a holy and practiced monk. As for being an evil being, I am sure you have read the various articles on the blog section of this website? In it there are many articles about high lamas of different Tibetan Buddhist traditions that all practiced Dorje Shugden. If one were to say that Dorje Shugden was an evil spirit, this would make all of these great masters wrong in their practice. If they were wrong in their practice then they were wrong in all their Buddhist practices. If that was the case, the entirety of Tibetan Buddhism would be invalidated, as these are the very same masters who have passed the teachings down over time.
But this cannot be the case, because we have seen how the high lamas have benefited so many people with their teachings, and how they themselves have shown many signs of being spiritually attained. You can read more about these masters and their works, on the blog section of this site, if you haven't done so already. I really hope this helps.
I noticed a picture of someone's altar on the blog and it seemed to have Lakshmi and Lord Shiva together with Dorge Shugden. Is it permissible to have Hindu gods on a Buddhist
altar? I have suffered all of my life with religious OCD i.e. Scrupulosity, which means that I worry about every little thing in my practice; that I may be doing, saying or thinking something wrong or not appropriate or even insincere. Eventually, what happens is that from worrying about doing something wrong, I wind up doing nothing. I have Hindu items which
are hindering me from my setting up of a new altar for Dorge Shugden, as I do not know what is the respectful way to dispose of them. I would appreciate any suggestions you have. I would also appreciate any help you might render in order to help me overcome this debilitating condition as it has wrecked my spiritual life. Thank you very much.
Dear Philip Strumolo,
It is nice to see you here again. From a strict Buddhist perspective, we do not include other deities together with the Buddhas (enlightened beings) on out altar. However, there is nothing wrong with doing so if your aim is to create a sincere connection with Dorje Shugden and given your circumstance.
The main reason for this is that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being, that means everything he does comes from unbiased compassion. Since everything he does is from compassion, he will not 'conflict' with other deities if placed on the same altar. So, there is nothing wrong with doing so. It will not create a problem whatsoever.
If you prayer to and create a connection with Dorje Shugden, you should concentrate on the recitation of his mantra. Not just reciting, but concentrating on the sound and energy of the mantra. This is very important.
For your specific circumstance, Dorje Shugden's mantra can help, as can the mantra of Lama Tsongkhapa, which is included in the Diamond Path, which is the daily prayer text. This is available here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden. Lama Tsongkhapa's mantra has the benefit of calming one's mind and can help deal with OCD as well. Dorje Shugden's mantra can have the same effect, because in essence both Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden are both Manjushri in nature, but manifested for specific purposes and with certain practices to help people in their spiritual path. I hope this helps.
I've always been been able to dark entities since I was a teen. I used to have a lot of night terrors and and a dark thing used to render me immobile during the night. Even my sister could see it at times.
And it always approached from the left side - there's a sensation of something* touching the left side of the body when it happens. It's just very disturbing.
I happen to come across D.S post and am wondering how the effects manifest. I need help as it's really affecting me.
It's nice to see you here. And let me just say that I know what you are going through. I have also been similarly afflicted by entities such as these in the past.
From the sounds of it, it seems that you have a karmic connection with a particular entity from a previous life, alternatively in this life you have the karma to be sensitive to these types of entities so you have these types of experiences.
There is an article here that may be great help to you given your particular situation: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/dorje-shugden-trakze-to-dispel-black-magic-spirits
The article starts off with a quick explanation how we can be afflicted by spirits and black magic and then goes on to explain a very powerful practice that helps to stop things like this from happening. It is a very long article, so please take your time to read it. While this particular form of Dorje Shugden may appear very frightening, he is actually very compassionate. The article will explain more.
This practice is very powerful and I have personal experience with this practice, as well as know people who have overcome similar disturbances using this practice. I hope this helps. Thank you.
Is the above-mentioned center related to you in any way? I do not see Dorge Shugden mentioned on their website. I have noticed that they refer to themselves as The New Kadampa Buddhists. I, especially at this point, do not wish to get off to a wrong start if they do not promote Dorge Shugden practice. A social setting is not imperative for me. I need a practice that will help me improve my life and finally bring some worthwhile happiness and peace to me. I do not wish to get involved with contradictory opinions but to have my own solid practice. I hope this makes sense to you. I thank you for your kindness and for your answers.
Dear Philip Strumolo,
Nice to see you hear again. The above centre is not associated with us. However, they do indeed practice Dorje Shugden very strongly. Their courses are known to be very good, as long as you yourself put in the effort in your learning and meditation, and the Dharma that they practice stems from our same Gelugpa lineage. Their teacher is very learned and has spiritual attainments, therefore his centres can be trusted. I hope this helps. Thank you.
I am a beginner in this practice and no
immediately ready to set up my altar. However, can you use the same space that was once used a an Hindu altar? Can one purify that space ? or must one use a different table? There is a space constraint .issue. Yet I do not wish to offend our holy teachers.
Dear Philip Strumolo,
You can use any space you like that is available to you, as long as it is a respectable area. Actually, there is no way to offend the enlightened beings, as they are above all emotions and concepts. However, from our side we should be as respectful as possible when setting up an altar space for the representations of the enlightened beings.
If you are using a space that has been used for something else before, you should clean it well. And then you purify it with incense reciting the mantra "Om Ah Hung" are you do so. So, you light incense, and then wave it over the space while reciting the mantra. Then you can set up the altar there.
If you are making offerings on the altar, then you can use the same procedure to purify and bless the offerings once they are made. I hope this helps. Thank you.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
