Tsok Days

Thangka commissioned by Sogyal Rinpoche under the guidance of Kyabjé Trulshik Rinpoche. Painted by Salga.

On these days, the Rigpa sangha gathers to perform the practice of tsok, specifically the Tendrel Nyesel tsok practice, a terma revelation of Tertön Sogyal, a teacher to the 13th Dalai Lama.

All practices on the path to buddhahood are methods for gathering the accumulations of merit and wisdom and for purifying our obscurations. These two processes of accumulation and purification go hand in hand; as we accumulate more merit and wisdom, our obscurations automatically diminish. One such method of accumulation and purification is the practice of tsok, which is primarily a practice of offering.

All sangha members are invited to attend, and to practice at their own level, whether it is meditation or ngöndro. There are several sections within the tsok that are open to all to participate, and the tsok practice is also supported by each person’s meditation and ngöndro practice.

As tsok offering includes an offering of food, please feel free to bring food for an offering,
