A special Guru yoga practice of Je Tsongkhapa’s tradition combined with a brief practice of relying upon the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This practice is
the heart essence of Kadampa Buddhism. In the first part we visualize our
Spiritual Guide as Buddha Je Tsongkhapa and make prayers and requests to
purify negativity, accumulate merit and receive blessings. This prepares our mind for meditation on the Stages
of the Path to Enlightenment. Then we make prayers to the Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden. Through these prayers we can overcome obstacles to our practice and create favorable conditions so that we can nurture and increase our pure Dharma realizations.
