Dharma Protector practice is central to Vajrayana Buddhism and is the third of the Three Roots, which is a refuge formulation in Tibetan Buddhism. The other two are the Guru and the Yidam. Within Tibetan Buddhism, Dorje Shugden is the most recent Dharma Protector to arise, with the specific purpose of protecting Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings on Emptiness. He is regarded as a wrathful emanation of Manjushri.
This video explains the role of the Dharma Protector, which is to help the practitioner clear inner and outer obstacles and also to provide suitable conditions for the practitioner to conduct his practice with minimum distractions.
