Every year, for over 25 years, at Chagdud Rinpoche’s original home and center in the West,  a Red Tara tsok offering is held in the fall.  This year nine lamas attended.  Jigme Tromge Rinpoche was the Vajra Master, Gatsal Lama (Jamie) was umze, and Gyaling Rinpoche was a guest of Dechen Ling (Cottage Grove).  Lamas Dorje, Trinley, Padma, Thupden and Lama Jigme were also there.
