Schiwa Lamsab Chod – Night Retreat

This course does not take place online.

For seven nights the long Schiwa-Lamsab Chod is practiced intensively, four sessions nightly. In between sessions the participants practice the Wisdom Mother Prajnaparamita sadhana. The participants sleep during the day.

This ancient retreat form is in accordance with the Schiwa Lamsab tradition. Venerable Lodro Tulku Rinpoche will be present throughout the entire week and will participate in some of the sessions.

At the end of this week of intensive practice, Rinpoche will grant the initiation of Troma Nagmo, the wrathful black dakini in accordance with the Schiwa Lamsab tradition.

A pre-condition for participation in this retreat is the Chod initiation in the Schiwa Lamsab tradition.

‘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.

Schiwa Lamsab Chod Retreat

“Heaven opening initiation” of the Chod practice according to the Schiwa Lamsab tradition

The tradition of Schiwa Lamsab/Oral Tradition of Dakini dates back to the 13th century and to Master Jamyang Gonpo, a disciple of Machig Labdrön’s son Gyälwa Thondrup.

Jamyang Gonpo himself has seen Machig Labdrön in visions several times. This lineage became a union of different masters like him, the son, as well as the grandson of Machig Labdrön and further pioneers of the Chod practice at that time.

The Venerable Lodrö Tulku Rinpoche is one of the few, if not the only, teachers worldwide to pass this lineage on. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama himself said that this lineage should be practiced and blossom again as it once did. Rinpoche explains the practice in the morning and in the afternoon the participants learn/practice the drumming and the old melodies of text visualization.

In the evening, the group practices this chod practice together with Lodrö Rinpoche.

Chod is a unique holistic practice system within Tibetan Buddhism, which uses meditation, visualization, sound and rhythm to train body, speech and mind simultaneously. Chod means “cutting off” the selfish, habitual thinking and behavior so that the natural openness, clarity and sensitivity of our mind can manifest itself. In Tibet, advanced chod practitioners have been able to support, heal and even fight epidemics of mental and physical illnesses. Under the direction of Lama Lodrö Rinpoche, the Ganden Chökhor Meditation Centre offers a multi-year training course on the transmission lines of Chod (Wensa, Schiwa Lamsab, Gyälthang and Tsogle).
