Dzogchen Beara, 1st September 2010
Recently, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche have asked as many practitioners as possible to offer sur practice to repay the karmic debts that are an important cause of the alarming spread of covid in India, and in other parts of the world. In 2010, Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche explained very simply how to do a sur offering, which is not a complicated practice. He based his teaching on the Chokling text of sur offering, which you can find here. He gave this teaching when he was visiting Dzogchen Beara to help with the building of the new protector shrine. During his visit, he advised to offer sur for all the people who died in the past in the region during the great famine. We have also included the video of Rinpoche demonstrating the mudras that he mentions.
