Offer Tsog for a great wealth of benefits

Making offerings is an important part of our Buddhist practice, as it will help us to gather a collection of merits for success in our spiritual and worldly aspirations. We strongly encourage our participants to offer Tsog as part of the 100,000 Tsog offering to request Guru Rinpoche for his swift and powerful protection and blessings!

The offering of Tsog on this special occasion not only helps us in gaining vast merits, it is also helpful in purifying obstacles, obscurations and negativities that hinder our path to enlightenment.
