Join the Samye Sangha on Treldha Tsechu, the 10th Day of the sixth month, the auspicious Monkey Month (July 28, 2023), in celebrating Guru Rinpoche’s birth within a lotus blossom on Lake Danakosha.
Please join us during this auspicious time in accumulating one-hundred-thousand tsok offerings of The Spontaneous Fulfiller of All Wishes (Tukdrup Sampa Lhündrup). Our monks will make extensive offerings from the Asura Cave Retreat Center in Nepal. Together, our monks, nuns, and lay sangha will accumulate 100,000 repetitions of the Tukdrup Sampa Lhündrup Tsok offering prayer. Preceding this event, Phakchok Rinpoche’s monks will complete two days of annual elaborate pujas.

Note: Reciting pages 22 and 23 from “Om Ah Hung lama rikdzin tsa sum…” to “…utsishta balingta bhakshasi soha” is a single recitation of the offering prayer. Reciting this 108 times is a single mala. If you follow the pace of our recorded umze (chant leader), you should complete two malas of the offering prayer during the puja.
Information about tsok practice
Offering tsok is considered to be the supreme method for accumulating merit and wisdom, restoring all breakages of samaya, and fulfilling the wishes of the deities, gurus, protectors, and vajra brothers and sisters. Thus all unfavorable circumstances will be dispelled and all practitioners’ wishes will be swiftly fulfilled. A tsok bum, or 100,000 accumulations of the tsok offering, is a powerful way to accumulate great amounts of merit.
For the upcoming tsok bum of Tukdrup Sampa Lhündrup, we would like to share with you the following introduction to the Tukdrup Sampa Lhündrup. Included is a brief teaching by Phakchok Rinpoche on how we can direct our practice while performing feast offerings and the benefits of tsok practice. Our partners at Akara Collection have also created a beautiful Tukdrup Sampa Lhündrup Thangka to support our practice.
Joining via YouTube
At the same time that we are practicing via Zoom, we will be live-streaming aspects of the Samye Zoom meeting via YouTube. This recording will remain publicly available for 24 hours after the conclusion of the Puja.
Remember: Even if you decide to join via YouTube, you still have to register and pledge your malas on Zoom.
