“By the power of the four causes, a bodhisattva will become strong.
Such a bodhisattva cannot be defeated by the four demons.”
-Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
The Four Powers of Chod Practice are:
3. Maintaining Your Commitments Exactly as you Promised
4. Receiving the Blessings of the Buddhas by Your Devotion
The Four Demons are:
1. Tangible Demons
2. Intangible Demons
3. Excitement Demons
“All the four demons come down to the one demon of grasping.”
Chod is a special Vajrayana practice that removes suffering instantly by targeting our most sensitive delusions and immediately cutting through all types of attachment and ego-clinging without any hesitation, hope or fear.
From August 19-21, Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche taught us the history, lineage, & meaning of Chod, as well as imparted heart advice & pith instructions on the actual practice according to the terma of “The Bellowing Laugh of the Dakini” revealed by the great terton Jigme Lingpa.
