“Pacifying, increasing and controlling attainments, attainments through wrathful actions, and the attainment of supreme enlightenment.” – Buddha, The Root Tantra of Heruka and Vajrayogini

Who is the Wisdom Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden? A Dharma Protector is an emanation of a Buddha or a Bodhisattva whose main functions are to avert the inner and outer obstacles that prevent practitioners from gaining spiritual realizations, and to arrange all the necessary conditions for their practice. There are four types of action that we should understand, and in which we should gradually become proficient ourselves – pacifying actions for purifying obstacles and negativities; increasing actions for life span, merit, wealth and, most important, our spiritual realizations; controlling actions for controlling delusions; and wrathful actions for protecting others forcefully when necessary. These four actions, along with the attainment of enlightenment, are embodied by the “five lineages” of Dorje Shugden, which are emanations of the five Buddha families.

In this workshop, Gen Norbu will explain these things in a practical way that we can understand and use to benefit others greatly, and to progress towards enlightenment ourselves.
