Announcing the Lama Norlha Global Tsok Bum

On the auspicious day of Treldha Tsechu (July 16), the tenth day of the sixth month, the monkey month, celebrating the miraculous births of Guru Rinpoche, Khandro Yeshe Tsogyal, and Terchen Chokgyur Dechen Zhikpo Lingpa, we invite you all to join us in a Lama Norlha Tsok Bum.

Offering a Tsok or feast-gathering is praised as the supreme method for accumulating auspicious conditions (merit) and wisdom, restoring all breakages of samaya, and fulfilling the wishes of the gurus, deities, protectors, and vajra brothers and sisters. Thus all unfavorable circumstances will be dispelled and all practitioners’ wishes will be swiftly fulfilled. An immensely powerful way to perform the Tsok is to accumulate the Tsok a 100,000 times, called a Tsok Bum in Tibetan.

Lamas will assemble at the Asura cave, the sacred site where the Mahaguru attained awakening, and, for three days, will continuously offer the main feast offerings. Then on Guru Rinpoche Day, we, the international sangha, will join in the Lama Norlha tsok offering accumulations via the online gathering hosted by Samye Institute.

During the annual Treldha Tsechu Tsok Bum, this year falling on July 16th, Phakchok Rinpoche will introduce the Nekhor Webcast and recall the precious life story of Mahaguru Padmasambhava and elaborate further on this auspicious unfolding of events. Subsequent Nekhor webcasts will primarily take place on Guru Rinpoche Days, and we will announce these dates during the upcoming event.
