Tsog Offerings Defined

“Tsog means gathering, and the traditional offerings include food, alcohol, flowers, incense, and sources of light such as butter-lamps or candles. All of these are offered as wisdom substances, beyond any dualistic concept of the ordinary, beyond attachment and aversion. The experience of the ‘single taste’ of the offering is unsurpassed as a means of pacifying outer and inner obstacles that arise from the grasping tendencies of the ordinary mind.”

~Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche
