Tsok Bum

The Tukdrup Sampa Lhündrup Online Global Feast Offering

Dear Dharma Brothers and Sisters,

Many thanks to all of you for participating in our recent Tukdrup Sampa Lhündrup Tsok Bum, the ninth in our series of global online ganachakra feast offering practices.

We are delighted to share with you that, as a global sangha representing 54 countries, we all together accumulated more than 250,000 recitations of the Tukdrup Sampa Lhündrup Tsok offering prayer.

We very much look forward to our next online tsok bum on Thursday, September 16th, where we will perform 100,000 recitations of the Tukdrup Barché Künsel Tsok offering prayer. Subsequently, Samye will host a global online Guru Tsokyé Nyingtik puja on November 14th. Details of these upcoming two global online gatherings will be shared in the forthcoming Dakini Day Digest and posted on the Samye Institute website.

Our monks, nuns, and lay disciples also made offerings at É Vihara in the Kathmandu Valley. You can read more about this spot sacred to Guru Rinpoche and its importance to Vajrayana Buddhism at Nekhor.

Sarva Mangalam,

The Samye Team
