With Jigme Tromge Rinpoche as vajra master, the 100.000 Red Tara Tsoks will take place from October 14th to 16th at the Odsal Ling Temple.

The 100.000 Red Tara Tsoks is a very elaborate ceremony, in the context of meditation of the Red Tara practice, a treasure from Apong Terton, transmitted to us from Chagdud Rinpoche.

Tsok means reunion – from practitioners and substances. It’s one of the most excellent methods in the Vajrayana path to make offerings, accumulate merit and wisdom and to purify karma. The tsok substances form a enormous banquet, with different kinds of foods from all flavors, with the power to liberate through taste.

The practice, although highly elevate, may be done by beginner students. However, will not be given teachings during the event. We recommend a previous knowing of Vajrayana Buddhist practices.
