I have been chanting Dorje Shugden mantras and other mantras as well for a jobless member of my family to get a job as well as sponsoring 2 pujas (I can’t afford more as I am the sole provider of my family) for him. But nothing happens. What else can I do? I’m so desperate that I want to seek help from the deities who are unenlightened beings. My financial burden is reaching breaking point soon. Why, why can’t the Buddha’s help us? Any job will do as long as it can buy food to feed the stomach.

    Dear Help,
 There are a number of reasons why he cannot get a job. Mantras, prayers and pujas all actually do work but the help of the enlightened beings depend on our karma and our own efforts to overcome the effects of our karma. 


    I would suggest that he engage in practices that purify negative karma such as Vajrasattva practice (http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html) or 35 Confessional Buddhas.

    This should be coupled with the practice of Dorje Shugden, so that the prevailing karma can be purified. 
But together with this, karma is made by action. Therefore it will take effort on his part to purify his karma not to have a job, and also effort to look for a job. When doing this then the enlightened beings will definitely manifest to help the situation. I hope this helps.
