To do this Sur Ritual practice, it best to have received the great initiation of Chenrezig. However, it is also possible to do the practice by just visualizing Chenrezig above the crown of one's head. It is not necessary to have received the oral transmission of the Sur practice before embarking on it.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche advises FPMT centers and study groups to do the practice of sur (aroma charity) regularly. Rinpoche has suggested that centers could set up a roster system, having individuals or small groups taking responsibility to do the practice of sur for a period of time in rotation with evening being the most ideal time for this practice.
Rinpoche strongly emphasizes the importance of this practice in helping centers clear obstacles and create merit by making charity to the sentient beings of the six realms. Therefore, this practice is very beneficial in general for sentient beings and in particular for pretas.Compiled by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.24 pages, 2022 edition.An Order Confirmation with the link to download this item should arrive to your email shortly after you have placed your order.
