Tsok Feast

Blessing the Offerings

Before the offerings can be offered to the enlightened beings, they must be blessed. This involves various mantras and visualisations that help us to recall the pure nature of all phenomena.

[26] Purifying the Feast Substances with Emptiness

First, we recall the empty nature of the offerings by scattering the inner offering (sprinkle some water) on the feast substances and then saying the following three, five or seven times:

OM PHREM BENZA DAKINI BENZA DHATWISHVARI GA GA NA SWABHAVA SARVA DRA BYE NI WISHADHAYA HUNG PHREM PHAT

Then purify the feast substances with:

OM AH HUNG HRAH PHAT

And the ground with:

OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHA SARVA DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO HANG

[27] Visualising the Inner Offering

After reciting the mantras, we will now transform the offerings into nectar through the following visualisation:

From the expanse of emptiness comes the black mandala of wind in the shape of a bow, adorned by victory banners. Above from a RAM syllable, is the red fire mandala, triangular and adorned with flames. Above that, from an AH syllable, is a three legged hearth made from a human head. From this arises an OM syllable and many skull cups appear.

Inside, at the center, from an AH syllable appears white Bodhicitta. In the east, from an I syllable appears marrow. In the south, from a RI syllable appears rakta. In the north, from an U syllable appears urine. In the west, from a LI syllable appears excrement.

In the northwest wind god direction, from a LII syllable appears elephant flesh. In the southwest direction of the king of the Rakshasas, from a RII syllable appears horse flesh. In the northeast Indra direction, from an UU syllable appears ox flesh. In the southeast fire god direction, from an II syllable appears dog flesh. In the center, from an AA syllable appears human flesh. The wind moves, the fire blazes, and the substances melt.

Imagine that all of the offerings are now blissful nectar.

[28] Blessing the Substances with the Four Syllables

Strengthen the blessing by recalling the four syllables representing Vajra-Body, Vajra-Speech, Vajra-Mind and Vajra-Wisdom.

Vajra Body

With a vajra in your right hand and bell in your left, hold your left hand at the level of the heart, fingers extended and palm facing inwards. Then recite:

In the palm of the left hand is a moon and OM syllable, the nature of vajra body. By its light rays the impure substances are purified.

OM OM BENZA TSANDRA SARVA DHARMASU BISHUDDHAH SVABHAWA SARVA DHARMANA SU BHISHUDDHA SVABHAVANA KURU SOHA

Vajra Speech

Then lower your left hand and bring your right hand up to the level of the heart. With fingers extended and palms inwards, recite:

In the palm of the right hand is a sun and AH syllable, the nature of vajra speech. By its light rays the pure substances are increased.

OM AH BENZA SURYA SARVA DHARMMA PRABHO DHAKA SARVA DHARMANA PRABHODHAYA SOHA

Vajra Mind

Now bring both hands together at the heart, touching the fingers together and tucking the thumbs inside like you do for prostrations. Then recite:

In the center with both hands joined is a Rahu mandala and HUNG syllable, the essence of vajra mind. By its light rays the substances’ color, smell and taste blaze with perfect brilliant power.

OM HUNG BENZA ANALA SARVA DHARMA PRADIPAKA SARVA DHARMANA PRADIPAYA SOHA

Vajra Wisdom

Create the garuda mudra by placing the right hand with palm downwards and fingers pointing to the left. Place the left hand on top of the right with fingers pointing to the right. Then hook the right little finger around the left little finger. Hold this mudra while reciting:

In the center of the garuda mudra is Kalagni and a HOH syllable, the essence of vajra pristine wisdom. By its light rays, nectar of undefiled supreme pristine wisdom is produced.

OM HOH SARVA DHARMA BENZA AMRITA KARA SARVA DHARMANA BENZA AMRITAM KURU KURU SOHA

Establishing the Field of Merit

Once the offerings have been blessed, they are ready to offer. Therefore the next step is to invoke the enlightened beings who will act as support for the accumulation of merit. This is done first by recalling in general the four roots who are our inner refuge and then individually recalling all of the members of the merit field.

[29] Recalling the Four Roots

The Root of Blessings

NAMO, I offer this extensive Kalachakra feast offering in which wisdom and skilful means are nondual—with its completely pure unborn nature, and completely pure characteristics that have the completely pure essence of the vowels and consonants, sealed by the five meats and the five nectars—to the root of blessings, the Root and Lineage Lamas.

From the line starting with “sealed by the five meats”, you can play the audio file called “URCHEN NYI DUNG”. Otherwise, you can simply ring your bell while reciting:

OM GANACHAKRA PUDZA MEGHA SAMUDRA SAPHARANA SAMAYA HUNG

The Root of Siddhis

NAMO, I offer this extensive Kalachakra feast offering in which wisdom and skilful means are nondual—with completely pure unborn nature, and completely pure characteristics with the completely pure essence of the vowels and consonants, sealed by the five meats and five nectars—to the root of siddhis, the assembly of Yidam Deities.

Play URCHEN NYI DUNG while reciting:

OM GANACHAKRA PUDZA MEGHA SAMUDRA SAPHARANA SAMAYA HUNG

The Root of Enlightened Activities

NAMO, I offer this extensive Kalachakra feast offering in which wisdom and skilful means are nondual—with completely pure unborn nature, and completely pure characteristics with the completely pure essence of the vowels and consonants, sealed by the five meats and five nectars—to the root of enlightened activities the Dharma protectors.

Play URCHEN NYI DUNG while reciting:

OM GANACHAKRA PUDZA MEGHA SAMUDRA SAPHARANA SAMAYA HUNG

The Root of Samaya

NAMO, I offer this extensive Kalachakra feast offering in which wisdom and skilful means are nondual—with completely pure unborn nature, and completely pure characteristics with the completely pure essence of the vowels and consonants, sealed by the five meats and five nectars—to the root of samaya the intimate companions who are my Vajra Brothers and Sisters.

Again play URCHEN NYI DUNG while reciting:

OM GANACHAKRA PUDZA MEGHA SAMUDRA SAPHARANA SAMAYA HUNG

[30] Invoking the Enlightened Beings

[31] Strengthening the Visualisation

At this point, while the rest of the group chants the prayers and the music plays, the karma master should cut up the torma and prepare for the various rounds of offerings. If you are using a traditional torma, follow these steps:

  • The torma should be divided into three sections.
  • The first section is placed on the first medium sized plate as an offering to the enlightened beings.
  • The last section is then placed on the second medium sized plate as an offering for the Guru.
  • The middle section is then cut into three parts—upper, middle and lower.
  • The upper part is placed on the altar as an offering to the mandala. If you have set up the sixteen offerings, then it can be added to the food offering.
  • The middle part is placed on a small plate as an offering for confession.
  • The lower part is placed on the other small plate as an offering for the leftovers.

Assemblies of Gurus, Yidams and Dakinis, your crowns of the five families flex back and forth. The silk ribbons of your tiaras flutter, your many ornaments swing to and fro. Multiple types of music resound, song and dance formations flutter like flashes of brilliant lightning. The retinue of a hundred thousand come forth directly, unhindered in an endless line, emitting a whirling sound. The personal appearances and projections of illusion are stripped naked. Insight awareness without reference is lucid, brilliant and clarified. Inexpressible space moves freely without obstruction. Great bliss is entwined with phenomena.

We entreat you to come and to bless us. Bring down to this place the blessings of the supreme realms. Bestow siddhi on us excellent practitioners.  Clear away obstacles of obstructing spirits and agents of perversion. May the three objects manifest as nonduality.

Play the audio file for URCHEN SUM DUNG.

Distributing the Feast

With all of the preparations complete, we will now present the offerings to each of the honoured guests. First are the Buddhas, then the Vajra Master, then the other practitioners in attendance.

[32] Offering the Best Portion to the Buddhas

The first offering is made to the Buddhas and the enlightened beings visualised in the Merit Field. For this offering, you will need an empty small plate. While the group recites the prayer, the karma master follows these steps:

  • Take a handful of offerings from the offering plates on the table and place them onto the small plate.
  • Holding the plate in your right hand and the damp twig in your left.
  • Flourish the twig a few times and hold the plate up.
  • Then dump the contents of the small plate onto the medium sized plate for the enlightened beings.

Real wealth and that emanated by mind, all good offering substances in all the directions and times, I offer to the Lamas and the victorious ones together with their children. I supplicate to you for the benefit of all beings that pervade space.

Accumulating Merit

To accumulate merit, we will increase the size of the offering to the Buddhas by again grabbing a handful of offerings, putting them on the small plate, holding the plate up for a moment and then dumping the contents onto the medium sized plate. While the rest of the group recites the following prayer and mantra three times, the karma master makes as many offerings as possible to fill up the plate.

OM AH HUNG. To the exalted lama, all pervading lord, Vajradhara, together with the host of yidams, dakinis and dharmapalas, we offer this offering feast. May we enjoy it and confess all violations. May all beings strive for comfort, happiness and the supreme siddhi.

GURU DEWA DAKINI SARVA DHARMAPALA GANACHAKRA PUDZA KAHI

Confession of the Root Downfalls and General Confession

Next, while the group recites the verses of confession, the karma master should place the empty plate to the side and make three prostrations towards the mandala (or altar) and then using the second small plate (with the piece of torma already on it) make offerings as before adding them to the medium sized plate. Repeat this process until the medium sized plate is full.

I realize the universal lord Vajrasattva in myself. Due to many afflictions of ignorance and disrespect, I have disturbed the mind of the glorious Lama and broken his commands. I openly confess getting angry at my Vajra Brothers and Sisters. Letting go the attitude of kindness, I have damaged Bodhicitta. I proclaim my unripened secret faults of disparaging the doctrine,  I openly confess having degraded my body, doubted the Dharma, and performed hypocritical kindness.

In the abode of profundity, the conceptualization and analysis of personal fabrication, saying that pure individuals have faults and abandoning samaya substances, completely disparaging women and so forth, because of feeling remorse for the fourteen root downfalls, confessing them. The samaya of the Lama’s body, speech, and mind and all degenerations of Samaya confessing from the heart.

Having completely purified all defilements of faults and downfalls, quickly treading the profound, excellent Vajra Path, the one possessing the seven aspects of union, may I quickly attain the state of great Vajradhara within this very life.

The group should then purify all downfalls by reciting the long Vajrasattva mantra three, seven or as many times as they can:

OM SHRI VAJRA HERUKA SAMAYA MANUPALAYA | VAJRA HERUKA TENOPA | TISHTHA DRIDHO ME BHAVA | SUTOKAYO ME BHAVA | ANURAKTO ME BHAVA | SUPOKAYO ME BHAVA | SARVA SIDDHI MAME PRAYATSA | SARVA KARMA SU TSA ME | TSITAM SHREYANG KURU HUNG | HA HA HA HA HO | BHAGAVAN VAJRA HERUKA MAME MUNTSA | HERUKA BHAVA MAHA SAMAYA SATTVA AH HUM PHET (3x)

Once the first medium sized plate is filled with offerings for the Buddhas, the karma master should then accumulate offerings onto the second medium sized plate which will be offered to the Vajra Master. If time is limited, it is acceptable to simply grab a selection of offerings and place them directly on the medium sized plate. Everyone should keep reciting the Vajrasattva mantra until the Karma Master finishes.

[33] Offering to the Vajra Master

If there is no Vajra Master conducting the ceremony, then you can simply recite the following verses and then place the Vajra Master’s offering on the altar. Otherwise, the karma master should hold the plate full of offerings in the right hand and the twig in the left, then stand beside the Vajra Master while everyone chants:

As these Dharmas are excellent, behold them, for those that are gathered be without doubt, Brahmins, dogs, and outcastes, manifest as being of one nature.

The Vajra Master will then take the offerings and present them a second time, at which point everyone recites:

The Sugata’s Dharma is priceless, free from defilements of passion and so forth, free from grasper and grasped. I prostrate to suchness itself.

[34] Distributing Offerings to the Participants

The karma master will now take the remaining offerings from the table and distribute them amongst the rest of the participants. You can use small bowls, take-away bags or whatever is convenient. The main thing is that everyone should have some portion of the offerings. If there are a lot of people, then the karma master may need a few people to assist in distributing everything. While they do that, then the rest of the group can recite the following verses and mantras:

This food possessing a hundred tastes, ravishing the mind, well arranged, with the Victorious Ones and their children, by having faith and offering it, may these beings, enjoy the good fortune of the food of meditative absorption.

With all of the offerings distributed, the group should recite this passage from the Kalachakra Root Text:

To those who possess the four indestructible bodies,
To the infinite examples of Dharma collections,
To the noble assembly who demonstrate that Dharma,
I make offerings to the Three Jewels—source of my refuge.

To Kalachakra, Vajrasattva and Shakyamuni Buddha;
To the Shaktis, the Ten Vases and the Four Vajras;
To the Buddhas, the Bodhisattvas and the Wrathful-Ones;
I make offerings to each of these and the goddesses.

To the Female Deities—central figures with surrounding yoginis;
To the Gods of the Days, the Nagas and the Goddesses of Detachment;
To the Very Wrathful, the Stars and the Planets, and the Guardians of all Directions and Realms;
I make offerings to the thirty-five million manifestations;

To the Guru, the Yidam and the Assembly of Dakinis,
I make oceans of sublime offerings.
May all beings enjoy the great bliss
Of this ocean of wisdom-nectar.

[35] Remember the Purity of the Offering

As you recite the next verse and mantras, think that the offerings are pure nectar and the basis for establishing the ultimate bliss which clears away all obscurations.

Completely transcending lesser objects, the Samaya of all the victorious ones is supreme. It is the basis of all the siddhis, producing the most excellent of excellent nectar. It clears away all defilements of the obscurations and truly liberates from all conceptualizations. May unsurpassable enlightened mind be pleased by the great bliss.

OM AH GURU BUDDHA BODHISATTVA BHYAH BENZANE BITE HUNG

OM HARITYE PINDA KI PRATICCHA SOHA

OM SARVA DUTIKE | AGRA GRASAM PRATICCHA SOHA

[36] Recalling the Bliss of Inner Fire

Before eating the offerings it is important to be very mindful of their taste and to not simply gobble them up out of attachment. Recite the following verse to remind you that these offerings are the basis for experiencing profound inner realisations:

TE WAR TUM MO WAR WA YI | DE ZHIN SHEK PA NGA SEK SHING | JEN MA MIK LA SOK PA DAK | SEK PI RI WONG CHEN HANG DZAK

By tummo blazing at the navel, as the five Tathagatas are burned and Lochana, the eyes and so forth, by their burning the moon HANG syllable in the head drips.

Eating the Tsok

At this time, everyone is welcome to eat the tsok offerings that they have been given. While they are eating, the karma master and helpers will circulate with additional offerings.

[37] Offering of Alcohol and Meat

The karma master offers the alcohol by dipping a twig into the alcohol and then tapping a little bit into each person’s hand. The person then taste the alcohol by licking it from the hand. The helper then gives them a small piece of meat.

[38] Collecting the Leftovers

After taking the alcohol and meat, another helper will come by with the last small plate which has a piece of torma for the leftovers. Each person should break off a piece of their offerings and put it on the leftover plate. Since these offerings will be left in nature, make sure to take candies and such out of their wrappers. These offerings will be then given to the spirits and unseen beings who were unable to attend the feast.

[39] Offering the Leftovers

To bless the leftovers, the karma master stands in front of the altar holding the plate of leftovers in the right hand and the twig in the left. The hands should be held low, near the waste. To again purify the offerings, recite:

OM AH HUNG HRAH PHAT

Then purify the ground with:

OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHA SARVA DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO HANG

From the expanse of emptiness the leftovers torma excellent and vast becomes a great ocean of all that is desired.

Then recite the following mantras:

OM AH HUNG HA HOH HRIH (x3)

OM A KARO MUKHAM SARVA DHARMANAM ADYANUTPANNATVAT OM AH HUM PHAT SOHA | OM KHA KHA KHAHI KHAHI UCCHISHTA BALIM UCCHISTA BHAKSHA BHAKSHA SOHA (x3)

Now play the audio file URCHEN SUM DUNG while everyone recites the following mantras. While they do that, the karma master turns to the right and take the leftovers outside. They can be dumped into bushes or anywhere out of sight.

OM AH HUNG HOH HANG KSHA HRAH HRAH HRAH HRAH RA RA RA RA BENZA ANALA | SARVA ABARANA DHARMA PRALAYA SVABHAWA | SARVA MARA KAYIKA | BIGHANAM | BINAYA KA ADINAM | DASHA DIK GATANAM | KAYA VAK CHITTA NI | DAHA DAHA | PATSA PATSA | BHASMI KURU KURU HUNG HUNG PHAT PHAT

Once the leftovers have been offered, the karma master returns and sits down.
