    This short video explains very clearly the iconography of Dorje Shugden. For protectors and higher tantric deities like Vajrayogini, if we don’t understand the iconography, we will think they look scary and why a Buddha would look so wratful? Once we understand the iconography, the doubts we have previously will disappear and we will start to grow faith in the practice. If you are new to Tibetan Buddhism, especially Dorje Shugden, this is a very good video to start with to know more about Dorje Shugden.

    在这短短的一份三十六秒的视频中,解释了有关于多杰雄登护法的法相象征,这对与我们修持与观想上是有非常大的帮助的,我非常喜欢是多杰雄登手握的怨敌心,刚刚接触时,不是很明白为什么护法的手要拿住一颗心,而且还叫“怨敌心” , 除了其实代表是很大的慈悲心外,同时能够加持我们心中所愿。心指的是最内在的实质,我们内心深处的祈愿—正觉。这同时揭示出多杰雄登所拥有的本质力量,是为了支持和保护那些人甘于奉献自己达致最究竟的成就而利益别人。诚如拉登格西所说,祂会将祂的心脏送给你。

    Everything about Dorje Shugden symbolises his compassionate nature in alleviating us from our sufferings.
    This video is short but extremely beneficial for beginners who are taking this great protector as their own.

    很有意义的文章。 很多人以为佛像只是一个膜拜的对象, 殊不知佛像所有的法器、脸部表情、手印都有特殊的意义。

    多杰雄登其中一个与平时不同的是脚穿着虎皮鞋。 通常证悟的护法比如吉祥天母、大黑天都是赤脚。 不过多杰雄登穿着虎皮鞋就是代表他们与身在六道的我们更加接近, 也可以更快帮助我们。

    多杰雄登是文殊菩萨的化身, 他的慈悲让他化身成为多杰雄登护法, 护持我们修行佛法的人。

    To know more about a Buddha’s iconography is enable us to better tap into the Buddha blessings. When we learn more about a Buddha – why the deity holds a heart on his hand, why step on a person on the feet, why rides on some animals, why they carry weapons, why they look so angry…All these iconography are with meaning in it. The more we learn about it the more faith we could have in the deity. With faith then we are able to tap into the blessings, and thus gain benefits by doing the practice. The video clip is short but clear in explaining various aspects of Dorje Shugden as an enlightened Protector. May those who sight upon Dorje Shugden get the blessings; and gain faith to do his practice thus gain benefits like many other practitioners do.

It is important that we know the iconography, so that it aids our visualisation, as well as understanding of how Dorje Shugden is, and how he can benefit us.

    It is important to know about a Buddha’s iconography especially Dorje Shugden’s iconography. Due to the controversy and importance of the current ban, it is even more necessary to understand what the iconography symbolises and represents. The more we understand, the more we are able to relate in our meditation and tap into Dorje Shugden’s blessing i feel. It also enables us to be connected with Holy Dorje Shugden’s energy and gain benefit from the practice. The video clip might be short but is strong enough to explain various aspects of Dorje Shugden and as an enlightened Protector. May those who sees Dorje Shugden will get the needful blessings and be protected. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted very soon for the benefit of all.

    A brief and precise video on the iconography of Dorje Shugden. It is easy to understand and know what they represent so that our visualisation while we meditate are accurate. When we understand, then we are no longer ignorant and be fearful. Dorje Shudgen is buddha of Wisdom. Compassion and Wealth. It is these traits that we want to obtain so that we can nurture the Buddha nature in us.

    I like this short video, in just less than 2 minutes it spells out all the symbolism of Dorje Shugden. Easy to view and remember. I use to be scared with Tibetan Buddhism statue. Most of them are wrathful. To me Buddha statue should be pleasant looking. Nevertheless, with this video and explanation, I now understand that every item on a statue is a representation to help us counter our negativity.

    Thank you for sharing this video.

    Learning about the iconography is learning about the nature of the deity. So, what may seem odd, weird or scary becomes interesting and comfortable when we know what it means.With understanding, then faith will develop.
