Benefits of Offering Torma for the Grand Mahakala Puja

There are many elaborately detailed records on Torma, expressing its purposes, definitions, and representations. Different kinds of Torma are found in various texts and Dharma practice manuals. Doing an elaborate practice requires a separate characteristic Torma for each and every deity of the three roots (Lama, Yidam, Khandro) or Dharma Protectors like Mahakala.

The benefit of the torma is to be used as an essential support to fulfill the accomplishment of both enlightened wisdom and worldly deities.

Guru Rinpoche has said, “It has both temporary and ultimate benefit. It accomplishes longevity without sickness, increases wealth and prosperity and increases all the good qualities you and your family possess. The temporary benefit is the fulfillment of all your wishes without any obstacles. The ultimate benefit is purifying obscuring defilements, accumulating perfect merit, and arriving at the surpassable stage of Enlightenment.” He also says, “All spiritual attainments can be accomplished through torma. Both meritorious deeds and wisdom are intensified through torma.” To higher beings, he emphasizes that “by making torma offerings, you can perfect your wisdom mind.” And to lower beings, he advises, “you can increase your merit.”

In short, there are so many purposes of torma, which not only bring benefit in this life but cause attainment of the enlightened wisdom mind. Having heard this, you can act accordingly, with full devotional faith and confidence and motivate yourself to appropriate meritorious actions.
