Tsa-tsa are small clay statues of the Buddha and Bodhisattvas formed in molds. Traditionally, these statues have many benefits. For this project, the Tsa-tsa are for world peace, the long-life of H.H. the Dalai Lama, H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche, H.E. Dagmo Kusho and other masters,and for accumulating merit for yourself. Tsa-tsa can also be made for those who have passed away. It is an ancient custom in Tibet to knead the ashes of one’s loved ones into the tsa-tsa – you are welcome to do so if you wish. These ash-filled tsa-tsas may be taken home or added to the project.
Venerable Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche is a Dzogchen master and the reincarnation of Dzogchen Gyaltsab Thodo Rinpoche. He was recognized by H.H. Dalai Lama’s Nyingmapa teacher Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche.
