Does the DC practice have a torma?
It is described as something which may be used, but no detail given.
('paste mixed with medicine modelled into a specific form')

It includes sang & serkyem, cakes and milk.

Here's a picture of the Dujom Naga torma.

Sorry, don't seem to be able to make this work and don't know how to delete.

Anyway, it's basically a zhay-se (food offering torma) with four-colored jewels, a Naga over the top, and kar-gyen with jewels.

There's no link to the image, so I'm not surprised. lol :)
You can't upload a pic, only link to a pic on the web.
You need to paste the image address in between the 'img' and '/img' boxes.

Full Moon day is not listed as positive for Naga Puja in the DC Calendar. Other practices, yes, but next positive day for Naga Puja in the DC is 2nd July. The Drukpa Calendar agrees. ;)

I go with Lama Chodak's calendar. Generally speaking all the major days (full, new, first quarter, Dakini and Guru Rinpoche) are good days for Naga offerings, or neutral at the worst.

Sure, just didn't want to mislead any DC folk, this thread being about the DC Naga Puja. :)
