This practice requires the student to have permission/empowerment received from a qualified master in order to engage in the self-generation of the deity. However, it is permitted to do this practice without such an empowerment as long as you do not generate yourself as the deity. Instead, you should generate the deity at the crown of your head or in front of you instead of self-generation.
Offering tormas is an important practice for the accumulation of merit and elimination of obstacles. This practice, Engaging in the Practice of the Hundred Torma Offerings, is from the great scholar Kaldan Gyatso based on the text on the Hundred Torma Offerings composed by Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen.
