Dharmapalas are protectors of the Buddhist teaching. Many times people have a wrong attitude due to ignorance and selfishness. They pray to dharmapalas simply because they want to get rich and succeed in the world. They hardly realize that dharmapalas’ duties are to guard the teaching and look after practitioners. Dharmapalas themselves are enlightened deities. They are not the same as worldly gods. They will never do harm to any being. They are beyond desires and emotions we face in our daily lives.
