Ein Mönch der Gelugpa-Sekte stellt in Rikon (Schweiz) ein Torma für einen Altartisch her: Aus Tschampa (Teig aus geröstetem Gerstenmehl, Wasser und Butter) formt er eine Lotosblume und bestreicht sie mit heißer Butter. Aus Weizenmehlteig formt er zusätzliche Teile und fügt das Ganze zu einem Blumenornament zusammen.
A monk of the dGe-lugs-pa sect produces a gtor-ma destined as an offering (zal-zas) for an altar table. He makes a dough from barley-meal and water, beside which he has a smallish piece of dough made from wheat flour. With the barley dough (rcam-pa) he kneads a conical form with a straight, round base. The lighter dough is used to produce the decorations which represent flowers. The ready offering is coated with hot butter to improve keeping.
