Wylie:Chos skyong brag lha mgon po'i mngon rtogs
Draklha, an aspect of the dharma protector Mahākāla, is the protector associated with all the teachings transmitted by Mitrayogin. He has already featured in the Avalokiteshvara sādhana in chapter 15. The present text is a sādhana dedicated entirely to him, but it would normally be practiced within a yidam deity sādhana, perhaps along with other prayers and offerings to the dharma protectors. In any case, it is necessary to visualize oneself as one’s yidam deity before visualizing the protector in front of oneself, making offerings, and entrusting him with the activities of guarding the teachings and protecting those who practice them.

Information about Unicode Tibetan and the digitization of this text
As the only available unicode Tibetan text at the time, Nitartha International's version of the Paro Edition of the gdams ngag mdzod is provided here. However, note that it has not been thoroughly edited and that there may also be mistakes introduced through the conversion process. Eventually we will provide a fully edited version of the entire Shechen Edition, entered and edited multiple times by Pulahari Monastery in Nepal, but as of fall 2017 that project has not been finished. Note that the folio numbers that appear throughout were added by Nitartha Input Center at the time of input.
