Continuation and deepening of the Wensa Chöd practice Venerable Lodrö Rinpoche has never commented on this uniquely beautiful text by Master Thukän Lobsang Chökyi Nima – also beginners can follow.

We are all looking forward to this extraordinary opportunity to deepen the topic. Lodrö Rinpoche will offer this course online from his home near Zurich.

A group will follow the lifestream together on site in Ganden Chökhor and will be able to practice together with longtime, experienced and close students from Rinpoche in the afternoon. In the evening there will be a “shared” Live Stream Chöd with Rinpoche and the group as usual.

The Wensa Chöd practice is from the collection of Manjushri, after a secret practice of Lama Tsongkhapa. She was transferred by Lama Tsongkhapa, with a few masters in between, to the great master Gyelwa Ensapa Losang Döndrup, the 1st Panchen Rinpoche, and was called Wensa Chöd.

Chöd is a unique holistic training system within Tibetan Buddhism that simultaneously trains body, language and mind through 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.

The great teachings of the Chöd go back directly to Buddha Shakyamuni and is therefore based on, the Buddhist philosopy, the Lam Rim / graded path to enlightenment, the Middle Way, Mahamudra or Dzogchen.

Lodrö Rinpoche gives explanations of the practice in the morning and in the afternoon, the participants learn / practice the drumming and the old melodies of the text visualization. In the evening, the group practices Chöd together with Rinpoche.

In Tibet, advanced Chöd practitioners were able to support healing processes, support the fight of epidemics, mental and physical illnesses.

In the meditation center Ganden Chökhor, under the direction of Venerable Lama Lodrö Rinpoche, a multi-year training course on different transmission lines of the Chöd (Wensa, Shiva Lamsab and Gyälthang and Tsogle Chöd) is offered.
