a piece of the dpal gtor placed on the lhagma as a gift [RY]

the Legacy of the Most Glorious One, the Gift of the Most Glorious One (Māha Śrī Heruka or Śrī Māha Heruka). Another term for this 'gift of the Most Glorious One' is the tiny offering (mchod ras, mchod pa'i ras ma). The Most Glorious One (dpal) refers to Māha Śrī Heruka (dpal chen po). At the time of the Mind Transmission of the Victorious Ones (rgyal ba dgongs brgyud) one's own intrinsic awareness (rig pa) manifested as Samantabhadra (kun tu bzang po), who then transformed into Māha Śrī Heruka. In front of Māha Śrī Heruka all the residual guest (lhag mgron) promise to protect the Teachings and the practitioners. In return they receive the Remainders (lhag ma), as they are not allowed into the Maṇḍala. The 'legacy' or gift itself is usually a piece of the Glorious Torma (dpal gtor), which is the Torma for Māha Śrī Heruka. Also spelled dpal gyi pham 'bab, dpal gyi pham 'babs, or dpal gyi pham bab.
