Protector Prayers

Virtual Virtual Events

Sunday, 5 September 2021 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Prayers to protect from obstacles on a spiritual path. The protectors are wrathful emanations of the Buddha, that terrify our distorted attitudes and free us from the bondage of ego.

Special chants and ritual praises to strengthen our connection to the Dharma and dispel interferences, distractions and obstacles. These prayers are a skilful way to pacify the inner demons of doubt and confusion. We chant the prayers in Tibetan, and practice using the traditional instruments as shown to us by Geshe Zopa.

The protectors appear terrifying to the ego, but are in fact manifestations of the Buddha. Just like destructive actions need a firm hand to protect both the perpetrator and society, so too the protectors terrify our disturbing emotions and distorted attitudes, to protect us from the prison of self-cherishing and self-grasping.

This practice is traditionally done on Tibetan 29th which is Protector Day, and most suited for those with a a background in tantric practice, but open to all.

This ceremony is led by:

Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave us specific advice when we first moved to Camp Hill, that in order for the centre to survive and to flourish we needed great stores of merit. One of the practices he recommended was for us to do Tara Puja and Medicine Buddha Puja together as a group. So even if you cannot be there physically, you can still be very much involved. In this way, we can all contribute to the continuation of our wonderful LTC.

Many of us in the modern world are time-poor, but this need not be an obstacle to participating in the spiritual heart of Langri Tangpa Centre – the pujas and practices. Reading dedications from our people that couldn’t make it on the night helps to develop a sense of community, and brings a face to the dedication “for all sentient beings”.
