Lama Jigmé will be teaching on the practice of Chöd. Chöd is a Tibetan word that literally translates into ‘cutting through’. It is practiced as a skillful means to cut through obstacles like our own disruptive emotions, also referred to as inner enemies.
Lama Jigmé teaches from a very short and unbroken, authentic lineage. These teachings encompass the essence of the Mahayana and Sutrayana teachings and can give the practitioner direct insight and experience of the understanding of both the relative and ultimate truth as explained in the Buddha’s Heart Sutra (Prajnaparamita) which states that “Form is emptiness. Emptiness is form. Form is not other than emptiness and emptiness is not other than form”.
The study weekend can be followed by those who have previously received the Chöd teachings from Lama Jigmé. However, if you have already some knowledge of Chöd and would like to follow, please contact us.
Participants will have to attend in person for the full weekend.

In Tibetan Buddhism, students traditionally make a donation to their teachers for special teachings. Such donations can be done directly to the Phuntsok Namgyal Ling Foundation, as it will be a contribution to Lama Jigmé’s project to buy a piece of land where practitioners can do serious retreats and studies.
