The Amitabha Jangchok Tormas and Ritual (video)

Lama Lodro Lhamo (chopon) pictured with the Jangchok tormas, which are sitting on top of the urns of the deceased.

Amitabha Jangchok tormas, (three gektors, three chambus, three butterlamps) and a scorpion of black sesame seeds

The three gektors indicate peaceful means, the three changbus, wrathful means, and the three butterlamps are extremely wrathful means.  All of the negativities of the deceased will be burned in the form of the scorpion made of black sesame seeds.

Below is a video clip of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche performing the Janchok ritual:
