Torma Making with Amy Peng
We are happy to announce that Amy Peng from KMC Hollywood will be joining us at KMC SF to support and guide us through making the traditional set of tormas for Dorje Shugden and his retinue that you see on many Kadampa Buddhist shrines around the world. During this time, Amy will show us how to make the basic blissful and wrathful forms of tormas as well as techniques for making the decorations.
Everyone should feel welcome. All you need is a good intention and a wish to learn. Free. Please RSVP.
“A torma offering is a special offering of food made in order to gain spiritual attainments…The Vinaya Sutras teach that Sangha should offer tormas to the Three Jewels and to the Dharma Protectors to avert obstacles and gather all necessary conditions…”
