This practice is the heart essence of Kadampa Buddhism. In the first part we visualize our Spiritual Guide as Je Tsongkhapa and make prayers and requests to purify negativity, accumulate positive energy and receive blessings. This prepares our mind for a 20-minute meditation on one of the 21 Stages of the Path to Enlightenment or Lamrim. After the meditation we make prayers to our Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden. We make requests to overcome all inner and outer obstacles to our Dharma practice, and for the creation of favourable conditions that nurture and increase our Dharma realizations.
