Tsok Bum Series: Phurba (Vajrakīlaya)
December 24, 2020 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am
We are joyfully announcing a series of 100,000 ganachakra feast offerings (or: tsok bum) that will be completed at the sacred site of the Asura cave, where Guru Rinpoche attained the siddhi of Mahamudra.
Tsok is a profound Vajrayana practice of offering that swiftly gathers the accumulations of merit and wisdom and simultaneously purifies our obscurations. Bum means that the offering will be accumulated 100,000 times.
Phakchok Rinpoche will commence each gathering offering from the main shrine room at Asura Cave along with the three-year retreatants, who are practicing there. The feast offerings will be arranged directly in front of Guru Rinpoche’s practice cave. Simultaneously monks, nuns, and lay practitioners in Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan will participate in.
So that everyone who wishes can practice together in this great vajra net of accumulating merit, the gathering offerings will be video-streamed live via YouTube. We invite everyone to participate in this chain of mantra resounding throughout the globe.
