We will practice the Shower of Blessings feast offering (Tib. tsok) for the tenth day of the second month of the lunar month which falls this year on Tuesday, March 23. 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 second month: “Guru Rinpoche receives monastic ordination (rabjung) from Ananda, a disciple of the Buddha. Displaying an unparalleled comprehension and complete mastery both of the sutras and of the tantras, he is known as Śakya Senge, ‘Lion of the Sakyas’.”
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 Tulku Rinpoche will lead us in tsok practice online beginning at 5:00 p.m. MDT via YouTube livestream.
Please RSVP by clicking “RSVP” above in the title 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 no later than one hour before the event. Many of you already have these texts; if you do, there is no need to RSVP this time. We will turn off the RSVP function at this point so we are able to get the information to those who responded.
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!
If you would like to make a donation to support this practice at PMC, please donate online by visiting PMC’s donation page, or send checks to “PMC” at PO Box 3734, Boulder, CO 80307 and email email@example.com with your pledged donation amount no later than Monday, March 22.
