Develop A Strong Bond With The Wisdom Protector
An Empowerment is a joyful guided meditation during which we receive powerful blessings upon our body, speech and mind that help us to remove obstacles, attain spiritual realizations, and develop a strong bond with a particular Buddha.
Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa whose
principal function is to prevent his doctrine of the Ganden Oral Lineage from degenerating by pacifying obstacles, gathering necessary conditions and bestowing powerful blessings upon those who practice it.
Because the beings of this present time have a strong karmic link with Dorje Shugden it is said that now is the time to rely upon him.
By relying sincerely on Dorje Shugden obstacles to our spiritual practice will be pacified and we will receive powerful blessings to engage in the practices of Kadam Lamrim, and especially the oral instructions of Mahamudra.
“Dorje Shugden always helps, guides, and protects pure and faithful practitioners by granting blessings, increasing their wisdom, fulfilling their wishes, and bestowing success on all their virtuous activities.” – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
