This book, the first of its kind, is designed specifically for general readership. Its purpose is to introduce to the readers the world of Tibet's rich tradition of Guardian Deities, or Dharma Protectors. It presents the histories of the principal, universally known Dharma Protectors of Tibet.

The great many religious traditions that have come down to us through our benevolent ancestors are the pride of the Tibetan people in the world community. But through the vicissitudes of time these seem to have declined over the periods. Particularly in the case of the Guardian Deities (srung ma) strictest secrecy was observed by the Lamas who passed their respective traditions down only to their 'heart sons'. This was the manner in which the tradition was passed down through the generations. The ordinary members of the public had therefore very little familiarity with the history of individual Guardian Deities. This work fills this gap.
