To help dispel obstacles and bring about auspicious conditions the resident sangha of PTC will be chanting Gya Shi, the Practice of the Four Hundred Offerings. This practice, which involves the offerings of 100 tsa-tsas, 100 butterlamps, 100 tormas, 100 chambu (effigies), is a means to purify obstacles created by the four maras (mental afflictions, attachment to happiness, clinging to the five skandhas, death).
