We will practice the Shower of Blessings feast offering (Tib. tsok) for the tenth day of the fifth lunar month
We will practice the Shower of Blessings feast offering (Tib. tsok) for the tenth day of the fifth lunar month which falls this year on Tuesday, June 30. The tsok (feast offering) practice is offered to celebrate each tenth day, Guru Rinpoche Day, in every lunar month. Each Guru Rinpoche day commemorates a particular episode from Padmasambhava’s life as support to practitioners who wish to deepen their relationship with him, the buddha of our troubled age.
The fifth month: “The Tirtikas, extreme philosophers, try to damage the Dharma in South India: but through his great power, Guru Rinpoche defeats them all along with their gods and protectors. Raising the banner of victory of the Dharma, he is known as Guru Sanggye Dradog, ‘the Lion’s Roar Guru.’”
Excerpt extracted from Tibetan Astrology, in which Phillipe Cornu summarizes Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche’s explanation of each month’s tenth day. Read more here.
H.E. Chhoje Rinpoche will lead us in tsok practice online beginning at 1:30 p.m. and ending around 3:30 p.m. MDT. Visit our complementary livestream teachings page here to join us online.
Please RSVP below if you intend to join us. We will send out digital versions of the Shower of Blessings liturgy and the various introductory and dedication prayers to the email address you submit with your RSVP.
It would also be good to procure at least the “essentials” for the feast offering (bread, cheese, meat, yogurt, and alcohol) and arrange the items in a pleasing way during the practice just like we do when we practice together at the center. You can also offer anything that looks and tastes pleasing to you!
