Chöd Introduction according to Wensa Tradition
Course language: English , Translation to: Deutsch
The Wensa Chöd practice is from the collection of Manjushris after a very secret practice of the Lama Tsongkhapa. It was transferred by Lama Tsongkhapa, with some masters in between, to the great master Gyelwa Ensapa Losang Döndrup, the 1st Panchen Rinpoche. Now it was called Wensa Chöd.
Chöd is a unique holistic training system within Tibetan Buddhism that trains body, speech and mind at the same time with the help of meditation, visualization, sound and rhythm. Chöd means: cutting off selfish, habitual thinking and behavior so that the natural openness, clarity and sensitivity of our mind can manifest itself.
The great teaching of the Chöd goes back directly to Buddha Shakyamuni and is therefore based on Buddhist philosophy, the Lam Rim/Step Path to Enlightenment, the Middle Way, Mahamuda or Dzogchen.
In the morning Lodrö Rinpoche gives explanations about the practice and in the afternoon the participants learn/exercise the drumming and the old melodies of the text visualization. In the evening the group practices Chöd practice together with Rinpoche.
In Tibet, advanced Chöd practitioners were able to support, heal and even fight epidemics.
In the Meditation Centre Ganden Chökhor, under the direction of Venerable Lama Lodrö Rinpoche, a multi-year training course on the transmission lines of the Chöd (Wensa-, Schiwa Lamsab- and Gyälthang- and Tsogle Chöd) is offered.
