“From understanding merit, we can then accumulate it through relying, making offerings, visualising and reciting the Dharma Protector’s mantra, propitiation prayers and verses.”

Please advise step by step what should I do and any link to the suggested action would be useful.

Thank you.

    Dear Chong,

    Thank you for your question. The way to generate spiritual merit that was mentioned is simply by engaging in the practice of Dorje Shugden. I have broken down the each of the points to make it easier to understanding:

    1. Relying: this means that we understand that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being who has manifested in a specific form to help us overcome our obstacles in life. Knowing this, we engage in the practice of Dorje Shugden and understand that in doing so he can help in both our worldly and spiritual lives.

    2. Making offerings: this refers to two types of offerings. The first is actual offerings made on your altar. You can read more about setting up an altar here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/setting-up-a-tibetan-buddhist-altar. The second type is when we engage in the practice there are sections of the prayer that talk about making offerings, here you can visualise making these offerings to Dorje Shugden.

    3. Visualisation: during Dorje Shugden’s prayers, there are certain visualisations that you engage in, especially during the mantra recitation, serkym and the recitation of the kawang section. You can read more about these following the relevant links below:

    Mantra: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/dorje-shugdens-mantra
    Serkym: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/serkym-offering-prayers-to-dorje-shugden

    4. Mantra recitation: this refers to the recitation of Dorje Shugden’s mantra.

    5. Propitation prayers and verses: refers to the prayers to Dorje Shugden (as part of the daily practice)

    I hope this makes things clearer. Please feel free to ask more questions and I hope this helped. Thank you.
