What is a Tsok Offering? – Pop Up Class

In her visit to the Rime Center in 2014, Lama Lena recommended that the Rime Center perform tsoks on a regular basis as a way to benefit the sangha and build stronger bonds with each other. But what is a tsok?

In this pop-up class Lama Matthew Palden Gocha will introduce the practice of the Tibetan tsok. He will talk about the origins of the practice along with how to perform the ritual from his personal experience. In the book, “Handbook for Half Buddhas” Tulku Yeshe Rinpoche says, “If you are a tantric practitioner, you should attend Tsok-Kor practice with pure vision or view. In other words, you should view all phenomena as inherently pure and free from defilements of samsara. If you are not a tantric practitioner, you should attend Tsok-Kor practice with a mind focused exclusively on positive thoughts.”

This event is free and in-person only, but space is limited. Please reserve your spot with the registration below.
