Amitabha Jangchok Tormas

Jangchok tormas made of oatmeal and butter

Each spring at the site of the Columbarium at Karme Ling Retreat Center in Delhi, New York, a special three-day Amitabha puja is held to benefit the living and deceased. On the last day, a Jangchok puja is performed by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche and his disciples in order to liberate the consciousnesses of  those beings whose ashes are interred at the Columbarium site. I will post more about this ceremony in the future.

Here are some photos of Khenpo Karthar making tormas for the Jangchok puja. For more information about the Columbarium at Karme Ling, go here:
