"The dharmapalas represent our basic awareness, which is not so much absorbed in the meditative state of being but which takes place or takes care of us during the postmeditation experience."

"If you have the slightest temptation to step out of the dharmic world, the protectors will herd you back -- hurl you back -- to that world. That is the meaning of asking the dharmapalas, or the protectors, to help you in your practice."

Trungpa Rinpoche - Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving-Kindness (1993).
