H.E. Nubpa Rinpoche will be leading a Milarepa Boom Tsok (Hundred Thousand Tsok
Offering) in the holy place, Lapchi, starting 20 Oct 2011.
Rinpoche explains that Boom Tsok is the most effective method for us to
accumulate merits, to pray for the long life of our gurus, and to purify our
samaya with our gurus. When this tsok offering is performed at a holy place such
