We will practice the Shower of Blessings feast offering (Tib. tsok) for the tenth day of the fourth lunar month which falls this year on Friday, May 21. 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.
“4th month: The deluded ministers and people of Orgyen (Oddiyana) attempt to burn Guru Rinpoche and his consort Mandarava alive. The guru transforms the flames into a lake, from which he emerges with his consort seated on a lotus. The king, his ministers, and the people are filled with devotion. I le is known as Pema Dorje Tsel, “the Guru with Vajra and Lotus.” Excerpt extracted from Tibetan Astrology, in which Phillipe Cornu summarizes Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche’s explanation of each month’s tenth day.

In your home, you can arrange a plate of fresh food offerings–newly purchased items that have not been used before–and place it on your altar while you participate in the practice. You can offer anything that looks and tastes pleasing to you, then partake in the feast at the appropriate time in the ritual with the rest of the community.
