Is the Dorje Shugden empowerment in the NKT the sogtae from Tagphu Dorje Chang’s pure vision lineage or it something different?

    No, it is not sogtae. It is a blessing empowerment establishing a special relationship with the Protector, and does not carry the particular commitments of the Shugden sogtae. Also, Je Pabongkhapa explained that a basis for receiving sogtae is having received Vajrabhairava initiation and keeping the commitments of that. The Nkt does not give the Vajrabhairava initiation, and the Shugden blessing empowerment is not given privately to only a few people, but publicly at advertised events, usually to far more people than 3.
