Dorje Shugden is the emanation of Manjushri, which means He shares the same mind stream of Lord Manjusrhi himself. Dorje Shugden is known to have five principal forms; i.e. His principal form as Duldzin, his increase form as Gyenze, his control form as Wangze, his wrathful form as Trakze and his peaceful form, Shize.
Shize is the emanation of Dorje Shugden’s aggregate of form and he acts as a healer who purifies negative karma that causes physical and mental ailments. The aggregate of form is part of the 5 aggregates that make up sentient beings; namely Form, Feeling, Discrimination, Mental Factors and Consciousness. Aggregate of form controls the 5 sensory faculties that capture surrounding phenomena and stimulates or feeds the gross mind. Through this process, sentient beings will act out or behave in a certain manner.
The benefit of propitiating Shize is purifying negative karmas and obstacles. Shize’s practice arrest the perpetuation of this process and prevent it from fruitioning into actual physical and mental ailments, corresponding to increase lifespan and healing of diseases, as well as pacifying of the mind and environment. It does not mean that Shize will remove the negative karma entirely, but it is meant to hold back negative karma, giving practitioner a chance to purify it.
Another immense benefit of propitiating Shize is the collection of inexhaustible merits. Due to the enlightened nature of Shize, merits collected from propitiating this deity is infinitely enduring which means it can be carried forward to future lifetime until practitioner gain full enlightenment. This is extremely powerful as it helps create the cause for higher rebirth to continue on the spiritual path.
