‘Sky-opening initiation’ of the Chod practice according to the ear-whispered, peaceful dakini tradition –  Schiwa Lamsab

The tradition of the ear-whispered, peaceful dakinis, Schiwa Lamsab, goes back to the 13th century and especially to the master Jamyang Gonpo, a student of Machig Labdron’s son Gyalwa Thondrup. Jamyang Gonpo himself saw Machig Labdron several times in visions. This lineage was founded by Jamyang Gonpo and by Machig’s son and grandson, together with other pioneers of the Chod practice of the time.

Chod is a unique, holistic practice within Tibetan Buddhism using meditation, visualisation, sound and rhythm to train body, language and mind at the same time. Chod means to sever selfish, habitual thinking and behaviour, so that the natural openness, clarity and sensitivity of our mind can manifest.

Lodro Tulku Rinpoche is one of the few qualified teachers in the world who can transmit this lineage. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama himself said that this lineage should be practiced so it can flourish again as it once did.

In the morning Rinpoche will give explanations on the practice and in the afternoon, participants will practice the drumming, the original dakini melodies, and the visualisations. Each evening, the group will practice the Schiwa Lamsab Chod together with Lodro Rinpoche.

In the Ganden Chokhor meditation centre, under the direction of Lama Lodro Rinpoche, multi-year training courses in the various transmission lineages of Chod (Wensa, Schiwa Lamsab, Gyalthang and Tsogle) are offered.

During this online teaching, a group will also practice in the temple of Ganden Chokhor with live streaming on a large screen.
