We meet twice a month on special practice days at the Nyingma Buddhist centre for Tsok (Tibetan) or Gana Chakra Puja (Sanskrit) - a Circle Gathering Feast offering. Dates are according to powerful astrological days - the 10th day of the waxing moon (Guru Rinpoche Day) and the 25th day of the waning moon (Dakini Day).
Tsok is primarily a practice of offering. It is a very rich practice with many layers of meaning, and it can be practised on various levels. Further it can be explained: “Ganapuja is a tantric ritual, made up of various phases, whose aim is the reconfirming of the “promise” or commitment (samaya) between the disciple and the master, and also between disciple and disciple. In addition to this, through consuming food and drink in the ganapuja, the practitioners develop their capacity to integrate contemplation with the sense-pleasures, as well as entering into the state beyond dualism, which is the inner meaning of the samaya” - Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, Dzogchen - The Self Perfected State, 1989.
