Sidok Raksha Tötreng Puja

The annual 3-day Sidok Raksha Totreng puja was performed in the Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery from January 8 until 10, 2024. The puja was presided over by Kyabje Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Yangsi Rinpoche, and Phakchok Rinpoche.

Raksha Tötreng is a wrathful manifestation of Guru Rinpoche, Padmasambhava. When Guru Rinpoche left Tibet, he manifested as the king of the cannibals (sri) called Raksha Tötreng. One benefit of Raksha Tötreng practice is overcoming conditions leading to untimely death. This practice removes many death-related obstacles. It is also performed to purify any negativity or breach of vows during the past year and to remove all obstacles for an enlightening and prosperous year ahead.
