Chöd is a powerful practice founded by Machik Lapdron, a realised woman who’s words are still echo with blessing 1000 years after she lived. Chöd literally means “cutting” — cutting through our obscuration’s, cutting ego-grasping and fixation, cutting through to the natural state. By shifting the way we regard reality we can change the nature of our relationships to everything  

Mahamudra Chöd is the practice as presented by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, using an English translation of the practice and music by his students.

This introduction to the practice is open to students who have an established yidam practice as well as to experienced Chöd practitioners. The program will include the lung and instructions on how to do the practice. Copies of the liturgy will be available for purchase. Please indicate on your registration if you would like to purchase a copy of the text.
