Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, a master ritual artist of the Nyingma Dudjom Tersar tradition, guides the practitioner through the meaning and role of tormas in Vajrayana Buddhism. He leads us step-by-step through the process of making tormas, from preparing the dough, constructing the torma, and understanding its proper placement on the shrine. Rinpoche creates the principal tormas of the Dudjom Tersar, including the Kartor, Gektor, Lha Gya Tor-Chik, Damchen Chitor, Cheddo, and Tenma.
