Khungdzong Wodsel Ling, 1977 N. New Hampshire Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90027-181867
Fri. July 26, 7:30-9:30pm, Sat. July 27 & Sun. July 28 10am-5pm

Join us for this special Retreat. Tempa Lama will teach the Chod practice Laughter of the Dakinis. This version of Chod was composed by the great Bon Dzogchen Master Shardza Tashi Gyaltsen who achieved the rainbow body in 1934.

Chod is an ancient and powerful Tibetan practice. Chod means to cut through. This practice helps us develop the wisdom that ultimately cuts through the four fears or four demons that afflict individuals and cause our suffering:

  • our grasping of the ego
  • our attachment to our physical body and the five aggregates of form, feelings, perception, mental formations, and consciousness
  • our afflicted emotions and habits and
  • our fear of our mortality and our attachment to our continuation as a permanent and independently existing entity.
