Event Series Event Series: Long Protector Prayers

Melodious Drum Prayers – In-person + member livestream

June 28 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Kangso Long Protector Prayers

In-person and also available via livestream for KMC LA members at the Member Portal

Everyone is welcome to these monthly chanted prayers! You are invited to bring an offering of vegetarian food or other items for the altar.

A Dharma Protector is an emanation of a Buddha or a 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.

Beings in this present time have a strong karmic link with Dorje Shugdän, and so he is the Dharma Protector who is most able to help them. Therefore it is said that, “Now is the time to rely upon Dorje Shugdän.”

Dorje Shugdän always helps, guides, and protects pure and faithful practitioners by granting blessings, increasing their wisdom, fulfilling their wishes, and bestowing success on all their virtuous activities.

There are many brief and middling-length sadhanas of Dorje Shugdän, such as Heart Jewel and Wishfulfilling Jewel. This extensive sadhana is called Kangso in Tibetan, which means “Fulfilling and Restoring Ritual,” and it is usually performed on the 29th of the month in Dharma Centers.

*Further information on the Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa and on the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugdän can be found in the book Heart Jewel. Further information on self-generation as Heruka can be found in the book Essence of Vajrayana.
