A torma is a traditional Buddhist offering that is made to increase our spiritual growth. These offerings are shaped into meaningful forms from almond paste or other sculptable foods, and are offered to the Buddhas in various spiritual practices such as empowerments, retreats and chanted prayers. In this hands-on workshop, Kadam Trina will explain the beautiful meaning and benefits of offering tormas. We will then roll up our sleeves and each make a special torma to be offered on June 4, Turning the Wheel of Dharma Day, which is also Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s birthday. This will be a relaxed, fun and blessed workshop. Please pre-register to help us plan materials. There is a material fee of $10.
