Chöd https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%B6d
—–
According to Mahayana Buddhists, emptiness is the ultimate wisdom of understanding that all things lack inherent existence. Chöd combines prajñāpāramitā philosophy with specific meditation methods and tantric ritual. The chod practitioner seeks to tap the power of fear through activities such as rituals set in graveyards, and visualisation of offering their bodies in a tantric feast in order to put their understanding of emptiness to the ultimate test.

Shamatha and Vipashyana

“Shamatha” or Calm Abiding takes the meditator to the stage where emotional conflict and disturbing trains of thought are eliminated in a state of thoughtful concentration which is calm and peaceful. In this peaceful and calm condition nothing disturbs equanimity, whether coming from outside or inside the mind. It is a state untroubled by attachments and aversions.

 At the same time the insight which is engendered by one pointed absorption allows clear vision of one’s own mind and the nature of things. This is called “Vipashyana” or Insight, which is a clear mind with an incisive insight into the nature of reality. Calmness and clarity allow the mind freedom to be in the here and now.

 

The other teaching programs are yet to be finalized. We will keep you posted and you can check at Mongkol Sri facebook page and also at www.mongkol.org

 

We are also raising fund for the payment of his flight ticket and other traveling expenses so if you would like to make a contribution please contact us here or call me at 081-9855564. The balance from the contribution will be directly donated to Lama Rinchen.

Vajrasattva practice is very much related to purification of all negative karma which we have committed in this life and countless lives before. So this is a very powerful and useful practice.

In the past, while on the path of learning, Vajrasattva made the following aspiration: (from Rigpawiki)

In future, when I reach complete and perfect buddhahood, may those who have committed the five crimes with immediate retribution, or anyone whose samaya commitments have been impaired, be purified entirely of all their harmful actions and impairments merely by hearing my name, thinking of me, or reciting the hundred syllables, the most majestic of all the secret mantras! Until this is brought about may I remain without awakening!
And:
May I be present before all those with impairments and breakages of samaya commitments and may I purify all their obscurations!
