December 10, Sunday (following Drolma Yuldok chanting) | Sür, Evening Fire Offering Ceremony
Sür (an evening fire offering ceremony) is an offering to the four guests: the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, the Protector deities, sentient beings, and those with whom we have karmic debts. It averts obstacles and sickness and is dedicated to those who are dying, to beings in the Bardo, and to beings with whom we have karmic debts.
