Dorje Shugden Day Retreat

Saturday, 29 September 9:00am - 5:30pm iCal | Google Calendar

4953 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles, CA, 90027

Heart Jewel prayers are a powerful way to connect to the inspiration and spiritual power of all the enlightened beings, and they are the main daily practice of a Kadampa. In this day retreat we will focus on relying upon our Guru, Yidam and Protector in his holy form as the Great King, Duldzin Dorje Shugden, emphasizing gaining experience of the visualizations and meditations associated with these profound, traditional prayers.

‘Je Tsongkhapa himself appears as Dorje Shugden to prevent his doctrine of the Ganden Oral Lineage from degenerating by pacifying obstacles, gathering necessary conditions and bestowing powerful blessings upon practitioners of these teachings.

If we continually rely upon Dorje Shugden with faith, he will care for us like a mother cares for her child. He will guide us to the correct path, or liberating path, pacify our obstacles, gather necessary conditions for us and bestow upon us powerful blessings.’
