Hi dear pastors,
Where can I receive the sogtae of Dorje Shugden?
In the article who received sogtae need to perform kangso once a month, for those unable to do it can request monastery to perform on their behalf, how about sponsoring the kangso puja which monastery perform it every month? Or must need to request monastery to perform a puja specially done for me? Thank you so much for reading my questions.

    Dear Julie,

    Thank you for your question. You can receive the Dorje Shugden sogtae from any qualified lama who holds the lineage of the practice. That being said, since the sogtae is tantric in nature, one would need to have the initiation into a Anuttarayoga Tantric practice, such as Yamanataka, which is the most common initiation given before receiving Dorje Shugden sogtae. Therefore in order to receive the sogtae you would need to have a guru, or spiritual teacher to bestow tantric empowerment and then the life-entrustment.

    If you have a guru already, you can humbly with offerings request your guru to bestow the sogtae and explain why you would like to receive it. However it is not necessary to have the sogtae in order to prayer to Dorje Shugden or make a connection with Dorje Shugden. They key is regular practice. With regularly practice, as we purify our karma, Dorje Shugden is able to help in our lives more and more.

    As for the monthly commitment, it is best if you do it yourself. If not, you can ask a friend knows how to do the puja, or the monastery to do it on your behalf. Generally speaking, the monastery will engage in the puja once a month anyway but it is better for you sponsor the puja specifically for yourself if you are able to. I hope this helps.

    Thank you.
