“The Riwo Sang Chöd is a treasure revealed by Lhatsun Namkha Jigmé when he opened the hidden country of Sikkim. This smoke offering comes from the viewpoint of Dzogchen, the Great Perfection. It is really the best practice to remove obstacles and fulfill both temporary and long-term wishes. The smoke offering is made to all wisdom beings, to the Three Jewels, the Three Roots and Dharma Protectors, and the Three Kayas. Offering to the wisdom beings helps us to accumulate merit and wisdom. This brings short-term happiness and ultimate enlightenment. We also offer to all demonic beings who are actually manifestations of our karmic debt. These karmic debtors cause obstacles of all kinds, both temporary in this life and also long-term obstacles to enlightenment. Through this offering, karmic debtors are repaid, removing all of these obstacles. This is really the best technique. In particular, His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoché did this practice all the time and recommended it to all of his students. In my life I have had such success with this practice and recommend it to all my spiritual friends and vajra brothers and sisters.”  - Lama Tharchin Rinpoche
