A good friend to have
Today in Kechara May 1, 2015. Dorje Shugden monthly puja and prayer.
After my guru’s passing which affected me deeply, for the last 30 years I’ve found solace, direction, wisdom and solutions within the teachings of Lord Buddha. This has been my real refuge and continue to be and will always be. I trust Lord Buddha’s teachings completely amidst all the chaos in my mind around me. But at times my karma just gets the best of the situation. Situations can become overwhelming as we all know. During my time with my precious guru, he imparted to me the practice of Dorje Shugden and told me compassionately this will help me get over so much problems and difficulties in the future. He asked nothing of me but only gave me the best and what he had practiced his whole life. I know my guru loves me and I love him and trust him. He gave me what he knows will help me. Living a fruitful life of Dharma for 81 years, he would have the wisdom to give me what I need. I trusted him and will always do so. Since then for the last 30 years I’ve put my heart into Buddha’s Dharma practice and failing at times, I invoked the assistance of Dorje Shugden. The Dharma didn’t fail me, but because I am ordinary, I failed at times overtaken by results of my past karma. Sometimes overwhelmed by loneliness, sadness, difficulties, financial hardships and almost giving up hope I turned to Dorje Shugden many times. Without fail and at times with clear definite signs, Dorje Shugden has assisted me as promised by my guru. I reflect back with gratitude. Dorje Shugden has never asked anything of me except to practice Dharma, transform my mind, apply lojong teachings and be of tremendous benefit to others. I am not a tremendous benefit to others, but I have applied the teachings of Buddha to transform my mind failing at times and triumphant at other times. Dorje Shugden always advises to take refuge in Buddha, be aware of karma and basically do onto others what Buddha has taught. Dorje Shugden is very ‘loyal’ to Buddha for lack of a better word. He consistently advises me this via the oracle and written in his puja texts. Kechara’s success today is a testimony to the assistance and power of Dorje Shugden for sure. You can have this for yourself too.
Now after 30 years of trusting Dorje Shugden and receiving so much benefits from him, I’ve decided to share his practice with my friends, students and people around the world. I’ve had many wonderful friends assist me. We always talk about how much a guru has assisted their students, but I would like to say how much my friends/students have assisted me in the last decades. I am grateful to them. All my ‘works’ cannot be carried out without them. I am grateful to my friends/students always. Therefore I think always how to repay their kindness in this life and help them in their future lives. The answer is Dharma and Dorje Shugden. Dharma for long term and Dorje Shugden for getting to that goal. Hence I share Dorje Shugden with them and many. My motivation is strictly that this practice has benefitted me and I saw this clearly as I am pragmatic and I wish to benefit others. I wish to repay their help, love and kindness. Being an ordinary person without much abilities, I cannot do much for now to heal or help many sadly, but I know if I introduce people to Dorje Shugden, he can help. He will help as he has helped me. With Dharma in their minds and Dorje Shugden assisting them, I know I have given something very good to my friends and everyone around the world. I know I have placed them into good hands. That is my only motivation as it always has been.
Today in Kechara, our wonderful people have offered their monthly puja (kangsol) (see photos) to Dorje Shugden. I rejoice for them as many of them are very good people and have problems just like you and me. When they rely on Dorje Shugden as I have offered them, I feel I have placed very good people into the very capable hands of this World Peace protector Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden can bless, protect, foretell the future, help find resources, give hope, give advice, dispense attainments and even be a friend to these people and everyone. He is active, alive, real, compassionate and like a protective father will watch over them as my guru taught and as I have witnessed in my life. I feel privileged to share Dorje Shugden with my close friends and many around the world who come to me and seek help, or just need protection and guidance. I feel when many people place hope and trust in an ordinary being like myself or in samsara’s ‘delights’, they go away empty. But if they come to me and go away with Dorje Shugden, I feel I placed them in the care of someone very powerful and wise. I feel I did something good. I feel worthy of their friendship, care and love. In life we get and we give. What we give is more important. I offer humbly Dorje Shugden’s practice to everyone and I hope they adopt this powerful ally and friend. For those who have adopted, I feel I have repaid your kindness, not that you were expecting repayment. For those around the world who follow me on social media, I have introduced something helpful to you and I am happy about that. For my friends on social media (Fb/twitter/blog/etc) that I may one day meet or never meet, if I bring Dorje Shugden to you, then our time shared together online has value. I want to give that value to you. I know you go through so much and some of you don’t have any dharma friends or centres or guidance nearby. I feel bad for you, but with Dorje Shugden, he can help you. Just practice dharma and invoke his blessings and see with time how he helps. He will help. Dorje Shugden is not a substitute for genuine Dharma practice but he will assist you along the way for your virtuous wishes as all of us encounter so many obstacles due to our karma and minds. That is the job of a Dharma protector. This is my offering to close friends, students, supporters and friends around the world I’ve not met or met briefly. May you all be well.
Dorje Shugden was given to me by my incredibly erudite and attained guru and now I humbly pass it to everyone in person and through social media. I fold my hands to everyone and request them to take the hands of this holy protector and you will never be alone again. You will have a powerful ally, a friend and a real protector who he himself follows the teachings of Buddha. Who operates from compassion as he is fully enlightened. I humbly offer Dorje Shugden to all of you to overcome the trials and tribulations in life we have to endure on our journey. I offer you my friend, something precious. May I be worthy of your friendship always,
As you know Dorje Shugden for the last 400 years have had official oracles recognized by the monasteries and high lamas. I have never shared these pictures before and this is the first time. This is the famous Panglung monk oracle of Tibet who has been taking trance of Dorje Shugden, Setrap, Kache Marpo, Namka Barzin, etc for over 35 years. He was trained by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Eminence Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He was fully authorized and enthroned as an oracle of Dorje Shugden by His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche and Sera Mey Monastery. This oracle visited Kechara and took trance of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo. I’ve had the great honor to speak with my protector directly during this time again.
Dorje Shugden in trance of his official oracle greeted by hundreds of monks and faithful:
P.S. Many lamas consult oracles. Here is His Holiness the Dalai Lama consulting his oracle:
Please support us so that we can continue to bring you more Dharma:

I have great opportunity to witness this great oracle took trance of the World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden and blessed many people.
My Guru H.E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche is so kind to offer this practice to me. It’s one of the great gift by Rinpoche to make sure we are taken care and for our spiritual growth. This is a great sharing to all my friends if you need blessing, protection, foretell the future, help find resources, hope, advice and dispense attainments.

If someone as attained as Kyabje Zong Rinpoche gave Dorje Shugden practice to my Guru and said its good to practice and my Guru gave me the practice, I truly believe that Dorje Shugden is good, after all, He is Manjushri. They have after all, practiced it for so many years then definitely it’s very good.
This practice is given to me by my precious Guru and nobody can take that away from me no matter what happens. And the most interesting part is how Dorje Shugden can help me all the way, in all lives, until I gain Enlightenment.
I prostrate at my Guru’s feet for giving me this most precious friend, ally, parent, protector and yidam.

Thank you Rinpoche for connecting us to this powerful friend.
For me, get to know Rinpoche is already great blessing and sometimes I wonder what have I done in the past to have merits for me to meet Dharma by Rinpoche and now one more great friend, Dorje Shugden who all of them filling up my life with so much purposes and hopes.
With this Dorje Shugden practice that I do daily, I do have a protected feeling and questions answered, which help me tremendously to live a better life.
Thank you Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden.

I thank you, Rinpoche, for your teachings, guidance, love, compassion, kindness, care and for introducing Dorje Shugden to me, my family and everyone in Kechara. I cannot find another greater teacher than Rinpoche. I cannot find another greater dharma protector than Dorje Shugden.
Dorje Shugden is everything Rinpoche wrote here who has cleared many of Kechara’s and Kecharians’ obstacles, and He will continue doing so out of His great compassion. Rinpoche’s wish is to make Kechara into a learning centre based on Buddhist philosophy, and together with Dorje Shugden, the wish will be realised.

The title of this article is a good friend to have, honestly, i have no doubt at all when I know it is talking about Dorje Shugden, in fact, he is not just a good friend, he is one of the best friend I can ever ask for, once when we requested Dorje Shugden to help, he will never turn his back around us or refuse to help whenever we needed him, Dorje Shugden will take care of us for our whole lifetime and for the many lives to come, he will be there to help.
Thanks to my guru, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche who gave me this practice, who introduced me to Dorje Shugden, for the past years that I know Dorje Shugden, I have heard almost countless times that how Dorje Shugden has help many people with their different situation and difficulties, he helped them to overcome and even to fulfill their wishes.
Dharma is no doubt the best gift to the people around us, every other gifts is only for us to get some very short term happiness, and it disappear extremely fast, then we gotto look for new ‘happiness’ again, whereas for Dharma as a gift, it gives us a long term solution of suffering and eternal happiness.
Yesterday I just read about this article, Buddhist meditation for the kids, and the way they look at life is so much different, I was amazed by their wisdom to see through life and the solutions to the problems. No other gift in this world can superseded Dharma.
Thank you Rinpoche for giving me such precious gift I can ever ask for and thank you Rinpoche for everything you have given me, nothing I can do in this life to repay Rinpoche’s kindness and care, I forever owe Rinpoche for all these. _/\_

It’s definitely a blessing to have such precious and easy to get practice which is extremely beneficial.
However, most of the human beings have this awful attitude, which is when it’s difficult to get, we will work full blast to get it when we really want it, conversely, when something that is easy to get, we don’t seem to be appreciate it as much as we need to, even though it’s what we want and it’s precious.
May all of us do not waste anymore time and do what we supposed to do to be a better person and benefit more people who are in need.

I am one of the very fortunate people to receive the Dorje Shugden practice from my guru, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche. I still remember what I said when I first saw the Dorje Shugden statues, and from there I move on to the journey of doing full time Dharma work.
This is the greatest gift in my life and i have been benefited lots from this Practice. Thank you Rinpoche.

Thank you rinpoche has introduced us lord Dorje Shugden to helped many of us in Malaysia. Without protector help, Kechara organization can’t growth that big and well know in Malaysia benefit thousand and thousand people. I had witness how Dorje Shugden through oracle has kindly give advised and support to Rinpoche and Kecharian in order dharma can grow in this barbaric country. Personally i had received from Dorje Shugden advised to ensure my spiritual journey, overcome self centre mind.

Dorje Shugden is for sure a good friend to have. He is one with Manjushri and will help us on our way. Thanks to H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, I have the precious opportunity to practice Dorje Shugden and my wish is that many more practice this most powerful Dharma Protector.

I was told that Dharma is not purely religious or spiritual but also a part of our daily lives. If applied well, we should be able to see positive changes in ourselves and the lives of others around us. In many, little ways, it has proven to be true.
For that, I have my Guru and Protector to thank. In the trance, the oracle gave Dharma teachings. How precious that is. To have a traceable source of Dharma from the Guru and a divine presence in the Oracle. Some may say this is a tall order to put so much faith but all I can say is that it has to be experienced to truly develop faith. I truly would love to have a friend like Dorje Shugden, for all my lives,to protect the pure and stainless teaching of Lama Tsongkhapa.
Thank you, Rinpoche for this most precious of practice which was not fully appreciated before.
May Rinpoche has stable health and long life and may Rinpoche’s wishes manifest smoothly and swiftly.
