Dharma protector

Dharma protectors may be either: (1) an arya bodhisattva who manifests in a fierce aspect in order to protect the Dharma in our minds and our world, or
(2) an ordinary being who is a spirit who has made a promise to a high lama to protect the Dharma. The first are considered to be supramundane protectors; the second are worldly protectors.
