Chod teaching, June 28, 29

You are invited! by Kagyu Mila Guru Sangha, Earth, and Herman Rednick Trust to this Chod teaching by Fred Cooper on Friday June 28 and Saturday June 29, 2024.

Chod is an Anuttarayoga in the Kagyu tradition and Anuyoga in Nyingma.  It is known as “cutting through the ego” practices  based on the Prajnaparamita sutras.

PREREQUISITE: Attendees must have taken refuge.

Traditionally one starts doing CHOD practice after having done the first two preliminary practices— Refuge & Prostrations, and Vajrasattva practice, and one has started doing Mandala offerings.  But it is a complete practice by itself which includes all these practices…

If you are interested in attending either by zoom or in person, please register at hilece dot r @gmail dot com by June 27. If you have your own text, please bring it.
