MINI COURSE | Staying Protected – An Introduction to the Dharma Protector

  • DATE & TIME

    Saturday November 28 |10am-1pm

  • HOW TO ATTEND

    Whilst continuing to stream, we are working to re-open the centre to allow in-person attendance to some classes in the safest way possible.  This will take us time and our startup will be a rolling start.  We will send out messages with any updates as we have them.  Please be sure you are on our emailing list to receive the updates.

  • COURSE DESCRIPTION

    In these puzzling and often troubling times, having powerful spiritual protection is a must. Enlightened beings help us by appearing as spiritual guides who show us the path to lasting freedom and happiness and as Dharma Protectors who create all the conditions we need to stay on this path. Dorje Shugden’s main job is to provide a forcefield of protection to keep us safe from all outer and inner obstacles. As the embodiment of the wisdom of all Buddhas, he also opens our wisdom eyes so that we can transform whatever is happening in our lives into fuel for our Dharma practice, completing our spiritual path without ever giving up.

    “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.

    Dorje Shugden is a supreme spiritual friend, a powerful ally in difficult times. Through relying on him, our innate potential for wisdom, love, and spiritual power will constantly grow. We will amass the confidence and conditions needed to become the positive, happy, and beneficial person we wish to be.

    This course will introduce the Dharma Protector and explain how we can rely upon him through the practice of “Heart Jewel”.
