Tulku Migmar Tsering Teaches on Sur Practice

In this video, Tulku Migmar Tsering demonstrates the correct way of practicing the white and red Sur offering revealed by Chokgyur Lingpa.

The smoke and aromas generated by the offering have the power to especially satisfy wandering spirits and bardo beings who feed on smells.

Tulku Migmar Tsering Teaches on Sur Practice

In this audio teaching, Tulku Migmar Tsering describes the practice of sur and reminds us to self-visualize as Khasarpani (Skt. Khasarpaṇi; Tib. ཁ་སར་པའ་ཎི)་, a form of Avalokiteshvara having one face and two hands. His right hand is in the mudra of generosity and the left is often in Dharma teaching mudra and he holds a lotus blooming at the level of his left ear.

The great Tertön Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa discovered an image of Avalokiteshvara Khasarpani made from a bone of Yeshe Tsogyal as the sacred body representation for his ter Padma Tsuktor. This image was last known to be in the treasury of Rumtek Monastery during the lifetime of the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa Rangjung Rigpé Dorje.
