Nuns Offer Prayers for Animals

On September 26th, a week long ZhiKhro puja began at Thrangu Tara Abbey. This puja is specially dedicated to all the animals that are killed during the Dashain festival in Nepal. ZhiKhro (ཞི་ཁྲོ) is the name referring to a cycle or mandala of 100 peaceful (zhi) and wrathful (khro) tantric deities and of a genre of scriptures and associated tantric practices which focus on those deities which represent the purified elements of the body and mind. These hundred peaceful and wrathful deities are believed to manifest to a deceased person following the dissolution of the body and consciousness in the intermediate state, or bardo, between death and rebirth.
