Dalai Lama in Protector Setrap’s Chapel in Gaden!
Every Monastery has their specially appointed Dharma protector in all Tibetan Monastic institutions.
Gaden Shartse Monastery- Protector Setrap
Gaden Jangtze Monastery-Pelden Hlamo
Sera Mey Monastery- Protector Thao
Sera Jey Monastery-Thatring Yangsang (Hayagriva)
Drepung Gomang Monastery- Six Armed Mahakala
Drepung Loseling Monastery- Four Faced Mahakala
The monks of each Monastery will propitiate the Dharma protectors of their monastery usually once a month as a group and request the protection, blessings and assistance for the growth of dharma and well-being of the sangha.
The picture is of His Holiness Dalai Lama visiting the Protector Setrap’s Chapel in Gaden Shartse Monastery, South India recently. He is consecrating the chapel with prayers. How beautiful.
Since I am from Gaden Shartse Monastery, the protector of Kechara is Setrap also.
