Dorje Shugden Open Day


Dorje Shugden is the wrathful emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. About 350 years ago, Dorje Shugden arose as a Dharma Protector especially to protect the 600-year-old Gelugpa lineage, as founded by Lama Tsongkhapa. He is known to be extremely effective in providing protection and swift assistance to overcome worldly and spiritual obstacles.

Kechara Forest Retreat is home to the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world. Located at Wisdom Hall, this incredible statue of Dorje Shugden is 24 feet (7.3 meters) in height, and is surrounded with His complete entourage of 32 assistants including the 9 Dakini Mothers, 8 Guiding Monks and 10 Youthful and Wrathful Attendants, together with Kache Marpo and Setrap.

Highly blessed and energised, the Dorje Shugden statue at Kechara Forest Retreat has been consecrated by Dorje Shugden himself!



This wrathful emanation of Manjushri grants improved concentration, clarity of mind and increased wisdom to those who propitiate him. Also known as a wealth Buddha, His practice will bring sincere devotees vast merits and material resources for virtuous activities.

For those engaged in spiritual practice, Dorje Shugden’s practice is highly effective in removing immediate obstacles and to create conducive conditions for us to be successful in our spiritual aspirations.

Other benefits from Dorje Shugden’s practice includes:

  • Protecting against negative energies, interferences and black magic
  • Overcoming physical and mental obstacles
  • Healing illnesses and disease
  • Providing conditions for bliss and harmony in the home



Every 2nd Saturday of the month, the public is invited to have audience, receive blessings and make offerings to Dorje Shugden. They are also invited to receive blessings by the Kechara Pastors, who are available to answer any queries, or Dharma questions.

Guests are also invited to circumambulate the Vajrayogini Stupa, take a tour of The Aviary, and to visit the Gyenze Chapel.
