Deep teachings on Dudjom Lingpa’s Chöd
During 8 days Lama Jigmé will be teaching about 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. These 8 days will allow you to gain self-experience and in thorough understanding of the teachings.
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 week can be followed by anyone who has sufficient knowledge of the basic principles of Buddhism. Because Chöd is a very profound and powerful practice, it is therefore not suitable for people with mental challenges or people who are emotionally unstable. Please act responsible. When in doubt, please contact us.
