Geared toward children, but all ages welcome. Tormas, or butter sculpture, has been practiced in Tibet for thousands of years. Butter is molded by hand into figures such as gods, humans, auspicious symbols, animals, and flowers. The sculptures are then transformed through ritual into inexhaustible bliss, and are offered to please the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, and celestials, requesting their blessings for the realizations and attainments necessary to achieve enlightenment.
