    I tried requesting prayers in the request a prayer section - yet it didn't work - why is that?
    My requests for prayers are: I'm trying to learn Coding from home with virtual classroom enabled by "zoom" yet I'm really struggling to get any of it - the teachers are great, the fellow students are great, had it not been for the Coronavirus lockdown I'd be in a real classroom instead which would be far better - I am requesting prayers for success in my studies in software development as well as to acquire an apprenticeship which will enable me to study more then get a career in this field which will put me in a better position to serve the 3 jewels and help others more. My apartment is a mess - not enough furniture, disorganised, chaotic, no storage units, TV etc - please pray for me to get help to get my apartment sorted. I am in bad shape physically - quite overweight, not getting sufficient exercise and a tendency to overeat, please help me resolve this matter. A former friend owes me around £2500 GBP (the equivalent of about $3000 USD) and is refusing to give me any of it back, despite promising to, nor is she returning my possessions she stored at her house whilst I was homeless. Please pray for this matter to be resolved. I am undisciplined with money as well as with food - please pray for me to improve. The more I improve, the better I can serve the 3 jewels, the better I can help others. Eventually I wish to ordain as a Buddhist monk, ideally at Amarbayasgalant Khiid in Mongolia - please pray for this to happen. Many Thanks.

    Who is right confused. The so called Dalai Lama who is believed to be reincarnation of Chenreziq accuse Manjushri Emanation Dorje Shugden as demon. Now who is the real demon here, chenreziq or manjushri? How can Chenreziq then made such simple mistake as they all have spiritual unimpeded 3rd eye?

    Hi, since H.H. the Dalai Lama has strongly discouraged the practice of Dorje Shugden (and He is Chenrezig), will I get any bad karma from practicing Dorje Shugden?

    Since my secondary school i have been taunted by this weakness of getting nervous
    when i engage in conversation. It's so bad at times that it made me to avoid my social life
    in total and giving up every good opportunity in my life. As i'm a devoted Hindu, I
    have tried many pujas and prayers to eradicate this problems but i'm
    still seeking for a solution. Recently I recieved a Dorje Shugden photo with a locket from a group of volunteers from Kechara foundation at a famous Hindu festival.
    As i'm a Hindu,can i prayer to Dorje shugden for my problems and i would like to know
    the right method of doing it. And i have also a photo of vajrayogini which i got it from a
    a book and i became very attracted to the form of the goddess. Is it alright to worship
    her in my altar room with other Hindu gods. Kindly advice me and thank you for the
    great service.

      Dear Kannan,

      Thank you for your question. I am sorry you have been facing this problem. The practice of Dorje Shugden can definitely help you in the matter, but it will depend on the effort you put into it yourself. As for if you can put Dorje Shugden and Vajrayogini on the same altar as Hindu gods, of course you can! If what we pray to is really divine, then there is no problem at all. In fact, from the side of the divine, it is not about which religion or which god you pray to, the divine is all the same. It is us humans that put labels on the divine.

      How you can you proceed is to follow the prayer and mantra written on the items you got from Kechara during the festival. The prayers are authentic and will help tremendously on your spiritual path. They will also help you to make a connection with Dorje Shugden, who will assist you, as his sole motivation is compassion. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Hi there, I have read the testimonial - and this is exactly what's happening to me now. I have open my shop for 5 years and till today, I have a lot of people telling me that they didn't know that there's a shop here until their neighbours or friends tell them about us. They practically said - We didn't know that there's a shop here or your shop is always CLOSED. We open 6 days a week and we have the open sign, the open tear drop flag, etc. We just found Dorje Shugden last year and have been praying his mantra om benza wiki bitana soha every single day. We also printed out his photo and place it on our altar at home and at the shop. May I ask, is it rude if we print another photo and place it at the door or windows at the front of our shop? Please advice. Thank you. Warmest regards, Geri

      Dear Geri,

      Thank you for your question. Of course you can put a picture of Dorje Shugden at your shop door or windows. There is a common practice of hanging images of the enlightened deities above doors for protection, clearing of obstacles and promoting success. In addition to this, it is believed in Buddhism that when you see an image of an enlightened being, this plants the seeds of enlightenment within your mindstream. Therefore, if you display the image of Dorje Shugden you are not only helping yourself, but also all of those who see his holy image. Of course, the image should be placed in a respectful manner, and kept as clean as possible. I hope this helps. Thank you.

      Dear HHLIM,

      Thank you for your question. What you have described is not normal. Dorje Shugden is the emanation of Manjushri, who is the Buddha of Wisdom. As a Buddha, he cannot affect people in negative ways. When we see a Buddha image or hear their prayers and mantras, we can only be affected in positive ways. This is because all Buddhas operate from the highest form of compassion. They only do what is the best for us and they can never harm us.

      I think what is happening to your father is probably due to his state of mind. You should talk to him and explain to him who Dorje Shugden is, his benefits and that he is an emanation of Manjushri. That might help to ease his mind. Sometimes having an image of a deity can disturb some people's minds because they do not know who the deity is. This is especially the case if they are not familiar with the form of the deity. To them it may seem strange at first, but once they know the benefits of Dorje Shugden then their minds will calm down. You can explain to your father about the benefits of Dorje Shugden's practice. You can find a list of these benefits here:

      Since your father is an amputee, he may be suffering from mental stress at having lost his limbs. This is very common with people who have been amputated, even if not recent. If you father is open to the idea, you can ask him to chant Dorje Shugden's mantra, which will bring him a lot of peace. You can also move the image to another location of the house if your father does not like it where it is. I hope this helps. Thank you.
