Dharma protectors (dharmapalas) include both wisdom beings as well as those on the path of dharma. Their job is to protect practitioners from obstacles and to aid us on the path in order to bring about meditative experience and realization. While we practice making offerings to the dharma protectors, our main offering is keeping pure samaya. We request that the protectors outwardly remove all external obstacles, inwardly purify the five afflictive emotions into the five wisdoms, and secretly remove obstacles to receiving the ordinary and extraordinary siddhis (spiritual accomplishments) in order to attain fully enlightened buddhahood for the benefit of all beings. Lama Tharchin Rinpoche teaches on several of the main dharmapala practices commonly done as daily practice in the Dudjom Tersar tradition. 
1: Damchen Chyi-tor; 2: Lhachen, Shenpa, Ekajati, Rahula & Dorje Lekpa concise offerings; 3: Phurba Protectors; 4: Drekpa De Gyay; 5: Lion-Faced Dakini; 6: Ekajati, Part 1; 7: Ekajati, Part 2; 8: Recitation of the practices by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche
