Teachings from Heart Jewel with Gen Chokyan

“A Dharma Protector is an emanation of a Buddha or 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. In Tibet, every monastery had its own Dharma Protector, but the tradition did not begin in Tibet; the Mahayanists of ancient India also relied upon Dharma Protector to eliminate hindrances and to fulfill their spiritual wishes.“ — Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

The principal Dharma Protector of the New Kadampa Tradition is Dorje Shugden. At all Kadampa Buddhist centers, special prayers and offerings are made to him on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. In this special Day Course, Gen Chokyan will explain the meaning of the extensive practice of how to rely upon Dorje Shugden to accomplish the most powerful spiritual protection. Everyone is welcome to this event, regardless of previous experience.
