This monthly practice takes place on or close to the 29th of each month, Protector Day. The practice consists principally of prayers to our Dharma Protector, the Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden.
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 attaining spiritual realizations and to arrange all the necessary conditions for their practice.
Dorje Shugden is a Dharma Protector, which means that he specializes in helping us keep our minds off delusions and on Dharma. One way he does this is by helping us transform all appearances into the spiritual path, opening our wisdom eyes so that we know what to do in each situation as it arises, generating Dharma minds such as renunciation, compassion and wisdom.
This practice includes a vegetarian tsog offering, which you can bring with you to puja or simply imagine.
