Heart Jewel Prayers to Je Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden are the heart essence of Kadampa Buddhism and many Kadampas do these prayers as part of their daily practice.

Buddhas, or enlightened beings, can appear or emanate as anything, and especially as teachers and as protectors; and in this practice we rely upon the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri in both these ways. In the first part we view our Spiritual Guide as Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa and make prayers and requests to purify our negativity and obstructions, accumulate a lot of good karma, and receive powerful blessings and inspiration. This prepares our mind for meditation. During this silence you can do any Lamrim meditation, such as love or compassion, such as found in The New Meditation Handbook. There is also a second shorter silence for Mahamudra meditation.

In the second part we make prayers to our Dharma Protector, Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden. Through this we can overcome obstacles in our practice and our daily lives, and create favorable conditions for increasing our experience of Dharma.
