Tashi Deleg! We are pleased to welcome you for the monthly Chod practice.
Chod means “cutting through,” i.e., severing erroneous concepts about the world of appearances and all illusions regarding the existence of a personal self. The practice of chod is an advanced skilful method that enables practitioners to become free of clinging to false notions and beliefs regarding inherent existence of appearances and experiences and therefore of an individual self. Attachment and clinging to a self are forces that give rise to the defilements, which are the source of anguish and pain. Chod is the practice that enables disciples to understand emptiness of all appearances that are fit to arise and therefore can be apprehended. It is an exceptional practice.
Please feel free to bring any cookies, fruit and juice to offer three jewels!
Other donations are also welcome for butter lamp offerings, flower offerings, meal offerings, and fruit offerings.
