Wishfulfilling Jewel with Tsog
Wishfulling Jewel tsog offering prayers are ceremonies that involve making offerings of food and drink to the Buddhas in conjunction with prayers and meditation of Wishfulfilling Jewel. They are an excellent method for accumulating merit, purifying negativity and receiving blessings.
Wishfulfilling Jewel with Tsog is held every Saturday night at 7:30pm VIC/7:00pm NT.
Tsog’ means ‘collection’ and when we make Tsog offerings we do them collectively, as a group. In this way we accumulate collective karma – we create the cause to progress along the Spiritual Path together. We also accumulate a great deal of merit – positive mental energy – the cause of good fortune.
During a Tsog puja we arrange a table of food and drinks – making it look as beautiful as we can. We imagine that we are preparing a banquet of delight for the holy beings to enjoy. We then invite the holy beings to the place of offerings and imagine they enjoy this blissful banquet.
Afterwards, we enjoy the Tsog offerings with our Spiritual friends. These Tsog puja’s are a great way to get to know your Spiritual friends and to feel a part of a Spiritual Community.
Please feel welcome to bring an offering of your own to add to the table – any food or drink that you feel is beautiful. (No meat or alcohol please.)
