Usually once each year the High Lama will come to the practitioners house with the toms stick, a long 4 sided mold for making different offerings and make specific offering for the family. Using the tsampa dough the High Lama would press the required amount into the carved molds on the toms stick for each specific request or need. These then will be kept for the entire year in the cabinet, taken out periodically and placed on the top of the cabinet and a little melted butter will be added for a new offering.
