Always on Sundays: 29.10.23 | 26.11.23 | 14.01.24
The Chöd practice Khandro Gekyang (tib.) or ‘The Loud Laughter of the Dakinis’ is part of the Longchen Nyingtik cycle, a practice and teaching cycle from the Nyingma tradition revealed by Jikme Lingpa.
The word Chöd means to cut or sever. What we need to cut through is our grasping for an inherent self. Self-centeredness and our grasping for an inherent self are the foundation of all our negative emotions, we can observe this in our everyday experiences.
So how does Chöd practice cut through this self-centeredness? Through the practice of love and wisdom; through the sword of love and compassion.
One’s own body and life are the most important things to all people. Chöd practice is about mentally letting go of one’s own life, that which one values most, and offering it to others. By transforming our bodies into nectar and thereby satisfying the needs of all beings (including those that cause harm), we can lay bare and integrate the energy bound up in our attachments and fears, recognizing and pacifying them as part of us. In this way, we sever the root of our negative emotions, let go of concepts and habitual patterns, and dwell in the nature of phenomena.
Chöd practice is considered to be very helpful in curing many diseases and protects against harm caused by demons as the embodiment of our fears.
