Chöd Summer study week – 10-19 July – in Rotterdam or online

The Tibetan Buddhist center Phuntsok Chö Ling is organizing a Chöd Summer study week in Rotterdam. It is also possible to participate online.

Dudjom Lingpa’s Chöd

Study Week Summer 2020
Friday 10th – Sunday 19th of July

After a period in which traveling was prohibited, we are delighted to welcome Lama Jigmé Namgyal back to our centre in Rotterdam.
During a 10-day Summer study week Lama Jigmé will be teaching about the practice of Chöd. Chöd is Tibetan and literally translates to ‘cutting through’. Chöd is practiced as a skillful means to cut through obstacles like our own disruptive emotions, also referred to as inner enemies.

Chöd contains the entirety of the Mahayana teachings, combining skilful means (bodhicitta) with wisdom (prajnaparamita), as well as tantric visualization and pure perception. Different forms of Chöd are practiced in Dzogchen, the great perfection. Successful practice allows the practitioner to abide in the natural state of rigpa, free from fear.

In the Dudjom Tersar Tröma Nagmo Chöd lineage, which started with the great master and treasure revealer Dudjom Lingpa, Lama Jigmé Namgyal is the fourth teacher. It’s a very short and unbroken lineage, as a result, Lama Jigmé’s teachings are straight from an authentic source.

The study week can be followed by anyone who has previously received Chöd instructions. If this is not the case, but you do have sufficient knowledge on the basic principles of Buddhist views, please contact us for consultation.

Online and physically present attendees

Due to Corona virus regulations a maximum of 20 people are allowed at our centre. Therefore the study week can also be followed online via Zoom meetings. This option has reduced prices.

People who register to be present at the temple, are asked to also partially follow the study week online. Depending on the number of participants, we will inform you which days we ask you to follow the teachings online and which days you are welcome at the temple. On online days we ask you to not come to the temple as we cannot let you enter.
Exceptions are made for people of our event team that perform crucial tasks and for those who have not attended a Chöd study week before.
