Lama Wangdu Rinpoche

Chöd is an ancient Buddhist tantric practice that teaches us about the essence of sacrifice.  It is traditionally performed in cremation grounds and other frightening places where emotional energy is intensified.  Using a drum, bell, and thighbone trumpet, the Chöd practitioner summons all harmful spirits and offers them a visualized feast consisting of the practitioner’s own body.  Through practicing Chöd, we learn to give ourselves away completely.  In so doing, we cut through our attachment to appearances and come to understand the underlying unity of all things.  In the hands of a master such as Lama Wangdu, Chöd is also a powerful ritual for physical healing and pacifying environmental disturbances.

Author Lama Tsering Wangdu Rinpoche

Lama Tsering Wangdu Rinpoche was born in 1936 in the village of Langkor in West Dingri, Tibet.  At age 12, he began studying at Nadrag Monastery with Nadrag Rinppoche, a Nyingma lama from whom he received the Chöd empowerment.  He then completed the traditional sashana of practicing Chöd in 108 cremation grounds.  Upon his return, Nadrag Rinpoche acknowledged his accomplishment in the practice and sent him to Nepal on pilgrimage.  Lama Wangdu arrived in Nepal in 1958, and eventually settled in the Tibetan refugee camp in Jawalakiel, Kathmandu.  He has trained and practiced with Dudjom Rinpoche, Chatral Rinpoche, and Urgyen Tulku Rinpoche.  Lama Wangdu is well-known in Kathmandu for the efficacy of his healings, divinations, and special pujas.
