Dedicated to the teachers of Tsong Khapa's Dharma and all Great Lamas of the Tibetan tradition. As a result of their unceasing efforts, may Buddha's teachings flourish for a long time and prove a source of peace and happiness for all beings!

These few notes, which are poorly written and which at best convey only a glimpse of the excellence and the profundity of the Protector Dorje Shugden, were compiled by one of little understanding and no attainments.

This work is based on personal notes from teachings given by H. H. Zong Rinpoche in February 1984. This was Zong Rinpoche's last visit to Canada.

In 1989, I began this work. Geshe Khenrab Gajam helped me with comments, teachings, translations and clarified points from that lecture as well as from the publications which were consulted to research this work.
