Tsok Bum & Annual Puja: One Hundred-Thousand Tsok Offerings of the Spontaneous Fulfilment of Wishes Puja

Please join us this July in accumulating One Hundred-Thousand Tsok Offerings of the Spontaneous Fulfilment of Wishes (Tukdrup Sampa Lhündrup) Puja from The Guru’s Heart Practice. Our monks will be practicing at the Asura Cave Retreat Center in Nepal. Together, our monks, nuns, and lay sangha will accumulate a total of 100,000 repetitions of the Sampa Lhündrup Tsok offering prayer.

Sampa Lhündrup is a special manifestation of Guru Rinpoche, in which the Guru appears in a standing posture—ready to act—surrounded by his twelve emanations. In this form, the Guru grants the practitioners protection from all calamities. He guards us against conflict, disease, poverty, obstacle-makers, vicious animals, disturbances of the four natural elements, robbers, sudden death, the intermediate state, clinging to reality, and the sufferings of the six classes of beings.

Offering tsok is considered to be the supreme method for accumulating merit and wisdom, restoring all breakages of samaya and fulfilling the deities, gurus, protectors, and vajra brothers and sisters. Thus all unfavorable circumstances will be dispelled and all the practitioner’s wishes will be swiftly fulfilled. An immensely powerful way to perform the tsok is as a tsokbum, or 100,000 accumulations of the tsok offering.

For the upcoming tsok bum of Tukdrup Sampa Lhündrup on July 19th, we would like to share with you the following introduction to Sampa Lhündrup. You can also read this teaching about the benefits of tsok practice.
