We feature the fantastic Deity Torma of Vajrakilaya on our cover this issue. Handcrafted to perfection by Khenpo Delek Rinpoche from ground barley and coloured butter, the torma was one of many ritual objects incorporated into a precious Retreat held at Rinpoche’s gompa in Taichung city last month. Participants came from four corners of the globe to pray and practise at this incredibly precious event, which Lillian describes as extraordinary and most rare. She explains the amazing benefits of this Retreat, which was dedicated to the peace and safety of our world in this black year, when already in the past two weeks alone there have been eight earthquakes of above 6.0 in magnitude intensity.
