Essential guide for practitioners of Chod - a system for working with fear.
This splendid resource for Chod practitioners contains the Chod sadhana written by the Fourteenth Karmapa.
Jamgon Kongtrul's commentary on the sadhana supplies necessary amplification and clarification - it is given both in English and Tibetan. An important feature of the commentary is the inclusion of illustrations for the different stages of visualization discussed within the commentary.
The Fourteenth Karmapa Thekchok Dorje (1798-1868) was born in eastern Tibet. He was an accomplished scholar and poet. He was a principal teacher to Jamgon Kongtrul Lodo Taye and many other important lamas.
Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye (1813-1899) was a pivotal figure in eastern Tibet's nonsectarian movement and one of the most outstanding writers and teachers of his time. His monumental Treasury of Knowledge presents a complete account of the major lines of thought and practice that comprise Tibetan Buddhism.
Classic and essential manual for students, theologians, and practitioners of Chod with many helpful illustrations of specific visualizations employed during practice.
