Offering to the Spiritual Guide with Food Offering (Tsog)
This puja is scheduled on June 4 to celebrate Buddha’s Turning of the Wheel of Dharma Day. (Typically, this 2-hour practice is held on the 10th and 25th of the month.)
This is a special Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa in conjunction with Highest Yoga Tantra that is a preliminary practice for Vajrayana Mahamudra. The main practice is relying upon our Spiritual Guide as a Buddha and making praises and requests, but it also includes all the essential practices of the stages of the path and training the mind, as well as both the generation stage and completion stage of Highest Yoga Tantra. By relying upon Je Tsongkhapa our compassion, wisdom, and spiritual power naturally increase.
Purchasing your own copy of the sadhana for this puja is not required, but your practice will be enhanced if you can follow along.
