“Lightness is Healthiness” Max by Duldzin’s new shrine

Is it really possible to be happy?

“It is my deep conviction, personal knowledge and experience that real happiness is possible; it is born out of a deep and continuous commitment to one’s own personal growth and spiritual path.
Find your path of healing and transformation and create the life of your dreams. You can do it. “
Weinberg, A Lightness of Being

Dorje Shugden is our Dharma Protector

Duldzin’s an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.
He protects our spiritual path by averting outer and inner obstacles to our practice, and  promoting necessary conditions for our spiritual development.

“Although physically they may find themselves alone, inwardly those who put their trust in him will never be apart from a powerful ally and a wise and compassionate guide.”
Heart Jewel, Geshe Kelsang

Dorje’s sat on his Snow Lion, who symbolises fearlessness. For me that means the strength and determination necessary for really engaging in the spiritual path, which is protection in itself. Relying on Dorje Shugdän helps us develop that fearlessness.

Being a Buddha, Dorje manifests people and situations according to our needs and wishes. He can do this, because his spiritual power arises from compassion, which is supremely powerful.

Also, our ‘reality’ is “merely a dance of fleeting appearances projected by our minds” Luna Kadampa Reality is no more real or substantial than last night’s dream. Of course it appears to be real ~ but then while you’re in them, so do dreams.

This makes transformation, co-creation and generally improving our lives very do-able. The only thing that’s really weighing us down are our self imposed obstacles and limiting beliefs. And their nature is illusory, making them as easy to overcome as waking up from a nightmare.
Especially with Duldzin’s help 🙂

    Dorje Shugden’s mantra is OM VAJRA WIKI WITRANA SOHA.
    Brill video of Shar Gaden Monastery on YT, with the mantra as the audio.
    Buddhas are always blessing our minds, like the suns always shining. Reciting his mantra with faith is like opening the curtains and letting the sun in 🙂

    Jas Baku…
    Compassion is indeed powerful!
    Without it, life has no meaning.

    I loved what you said…”This makes transformation, co-creation and generally improving our lives very do-able. The only thing that’s really weighing us down are our self imposed obstacles and limiting beliefs. And their nature is illusory, making them as easy to overcome as waking up from a nightmare.”

    This is such an enlightening perspective to see our battles with ourselves as illusory. Suddenly our problems become manageable.
    We become more powerful than our problems.
    Thanks for this post friend.

    Peace & Namaste…

      Aww thanks 🙂 As Dakini Grrrl said, our compassion is our courage, and our courage is our compassion.

      * Just being aware that our ‘obstacles’ are merely mental constructs, at least gives us some power over them – rather than the other way around.
      Like waking up from a nightmare, or even transforming it into a learning experience, get easier the more lucid you are in the dream.
      Lots of practice needed! Fortunately though, we’re not short of things to practice on, are we.
      LoL

      thanks 🙂 it’s the old one from Tara Centre, you know.
      An auspicious dream as well. Chonden wanted the cabinet to bring prosperity to our centre, so your dreaming it, might indicate prosperity for you, or Buddha’s protection? I’m happy to have inspired sweet dreams, whatever 🙂
