His Eminence Khondung Abhaya Rinpoche recently taught about the meritorious practice of tsa-sur, the pungent aroma ritual that is conducted every afternoon in the Phuntsok Phodrang Sakya Heritage Society in India. It is a unique way of making offerings to the objects of refuge, benefiting the deceased as they pass through the bardos and benefiting the local deities. In this hands-on workshop, Venerable Lama Migmar will guide us on how to make the nectar balls and H.E. Dagmo Kusho Sakya will give instruction and bestow the oral transmission of the practice. Participants will have the opportunity to watch her perform the practice.
Her Eminence Dagmo Kusho Sakya was born in Kham, Eastern Tibet. As the niece of one of the most highly realized Sakya Masters of the twentieth century, H.E. Dezhung Rinpoche III, her training in Buddhist practice began at an early age. She has received extensive teachings and empowerments from many great lamas of all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism throughout her lifetime. Dagmola is married to H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya of the Khön lineage, a Head Lama of the Sakya order of Tibetan Buddhism. Dagmola specializes in Tara empowerments, practices, and teachings, and has many students throughout the world.
