GURU RINPOCHE EMPOWERMENT and FEAST PRACTICE (tsokkor)
Let us come together and transform the future Yeshe Khorlo’s three-year retreat center’s land into Zangdokpalri – Guru Rinpoche’s abode. It is said that this can be done specifically through the practice of tsok offering (feast offering).
Gangteng Rinpoche and Sungtrul Rinpoche have already performed special purification rites and earth ritual on the location of the future retreat center, now it is time to transform the land into a real Guru Rinpoche’s awakened sphere. This time, Gangteng Rinpoche will first bestow the Lama Norbu Gyamtso empowerment which is followed by two days of tsok practice.
In personal level, through this practice it is possible to accumulate innumerable stores of merit and wisdom and purify one’s own wrong-doings and violations of samaya. Practice is the most effective when performed together in group, all vajra-sisters and brothers gathered together.
