Urgent Problem with Lama and Empowerment

Post by Tenma » Thu Apr 27, 2017 10:00 pm

Okay, although I don't have a root guru, I have been rather concerned on what just happened. Just recently, I took part of an empowerment by a certain lama. However, I did not know he was in fact a Shugden practitioner and am very concerned in this matter. Although the empowerment was only to White Manjushri, I realized this was a huge mistake in who to go for. Does this make him my root guru because of this first empowerment? I am very worried on the consequences as I know that Shugden isn't quite good according to the Dalai Lama. How do I fix this? Especially the Shugden part worries me even though he is considered a worldly emanation of Shugden by some many Gelugpa lamas. Can someone please help me out in this?
