Last weekend I asked Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche for instruction on the practice of sur offerings for hungry ghosts.
By a complete coincidence, Venerable Roger sent out an urgent email to the FPMT email group on July 27 in which he says that Lama Zopa Rinpoche requests that all FPMT Center and study groups do the sur offering practice on a daily basis.
Venerable Roger wrote, “Rinpoche strongly emphasized the importance of this practice in helping centers clear obstacles and create merit by making charity to the sentient beings of the 6 realms. Rinpoche said that this practice is very beneficial in general for sentient beings and in particular for pretas.”
Here is the link to the practice booklet. It includes Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s explanation of the benefits of doing the practice.
