Tsogle Chod Retreat

For the first time Lodrö Rinpoche explains the Tsogle practice in a chod retreat. The present Lodrö Rinpoche (6th Tulku) will comment on the text of his predecessor Lodrö Jampa Temple, the 3rd Lodrö Tulku from the 19th century. It is a shorter practice version – which, if you practice it takes about 1,5 – 2 hours. (Normally a Tsogle Chöd practice takes about 3-6 hours or longer. The text is based on the text of the 3rd Karmapa Rangdung Dorje.

The Tsogle Chöd practice is mainly practiced at the Kagyüpas, the Nyingmapas, but also at the Gelugpas. It goes back through the 3rd Karmapa Dorje Rangjung from the 13th/14th century, to Machig Labdrön, who lived in the 10th/11th century. The Lodrö line has a close connection with the Tsogle Chöd from the past.

We are very pleased that Lodrö Rinpoche has agreed to translate the text of his predecessor into German/English for us and to comment on it completely to interested choir practitioners.

Chöd is a unique holistic training system within Tibetan Buddhism, which trains the 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 natural openness, clarity and sensitivity of our mind can manifest itself.

The great teaching of the chod goes back directly to Buddha Shakyamuni and is therefore based on the Buddhist philosophy, the Lam Rim/Step Path to Enlightenment, the Middle Way, Mahamuda or Dzogchen.

Lodrö Rinpoche explains the practice in the morning and in the afternoon the participants learn/exercise the drumming and the old melodies of text visualization. In the evening the group practices choir practice together with Rinpoche.

In Tibet, advanced chod practitioners were able to support mentally and physically ill people, to heal and even fight epidemics.

In the Meditation Center 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.

By submitting this registration form, I agree to support the house team about one hour a day by karmayoga practice. I also agree on the GTCs. Karmayoga is a common practice in buddhist centers and offers a good opportunity to commit oneself for the benefit of the practice group and to practice mindfulness in daily activities.
