Dagam (Wyl. zla gam) is a cape worn in practice assemblies. Literally the Tibetan dagam means 'half-moon', and is the a reference to the fact the cape forms a half-circle shape when worn. It is one of the robes of Guru Rinpoche, and as such wearing it a key points of group practice, such as invocation of the wisdom deities helps us assuming being Guru Rinpoche.
