Tsok Bum

Tsok Bum & Annual Puja: One Hundred-Thousand Tsok Offerings of Guru Tsokyé Nyingtik (The Lake-Born Guru’s Heart Essence)

For the previous Tsok Bum—the accumulation of 100,000 Feast Offerings—of Lamé Tukdrup Barché Künsel, The Guru’s Heart Practice, we shared with you a short introduction to Guru Rinpoche, Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa, Lamé Tukdrup Barché Künsel the Feast Offering, and the sacred site of Asura Cave. For the upcoming tsok bum of Guru Tsokyé Nyingtik we would like to share with you a short biography of Jamyang Khyentsé Wangpo, who revealed the Guru Tsokyé Nyingtik, along with a short introduction to this practice.

Below is key information about the Guru Tsokyé Nyingtik Tsok Bum

Time: 8:00 – 11:00 a.m. Nepal Time

You can check the time for your location here.

You can access the Guru Tsokyé Nyingtik liturgy here. It is available in Tibetan with full translation into Thai, English, Spanish, and Chinese

Please Note: The accumulation section of the tsok is available in those languages, and also in Ukrainian, Spanish, Russian, Indonesian, Portuguese, and Japanese.

This event will have live translation into Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Indonesian, Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese.

We will be accumulating the Tsok Offering prayer collectively during the Tsok Bum Puja. This prayer is the section of the liturgy beginning “hrih dü sum sangyé guru rinpoché”, and continuing to “om ah hum benza guru pema siddhi hum”, reciting this prayer will count as a single recitation.
