Chod introduction to the wensa chod lineage
Course language: English , Translation to: Deutsch
The Wensa Chöd practice is from the collection of Manjushri, after a very 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 minds 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, Mahamuda 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 heal, and even fight 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.
