As an emanation of Hayagriva, Kache Marpo is himself an enlightened Dharma Protector. However, to show us the perfect example of a student serving the teacher, Kache Marpo has chosen to serve Dorje Shugden as his chief minister.
This praise to Kache Marpo is extracted from a ritual composed by the Great Fifth Dalai Lama (5DL, Volume Da folios 147r-148r), who composed it at the request of Kache Marpo himself so that practitioners may connect with him to receive swift assistance.
Praise to Yaksha Khache Marpo, the Doctrine’s Watchman
By the Great 5th Dalai Lama
Riding on a saddled precious horse
Having the power of the wind,
Traversing the universe in an instant,
Praise to Yaksha Kache Marpo, the doctrine’s watchman.
Furious mighty being biting the lower lip,
Three eyes blazing the sun and moon watching enemies,
Emanating messengers taking the life of false guides,
Praise to the liberator of the ten enemies.
Wearing leather armour, banners, coloured garb and
Leather helmet with a victory banner, treasury of nine good signs,
Tying enemies with a lasso, piercing their hearts with a lance,
Praise to you and your retinue.
