Chod Practice in the Bon Tradition: Tracing the Origins of Chod (gcod) in the Bon Tradition, a Dialogic Approach Cutting Through Sectarian Boundaries Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The dramatic practice of chöd, in which the yogin visualizes giving his or her own sacrificed body to the gods and demons as a way to cut the attachment to self and ordinary reality, offers an intense and direct confrontation with the central issues of the spiritual path. The chöd practices of the Bön tradition, a tradition that claims pre-Buddhist origins in the mysterious western lands of Zhang-zhung Tazig and Olmolungrig, are still almost entirely unknown.

Synopsis:

A study of Chod, the method used by Tibetan Buddhists to face and dissolve fears, worries, and attachments, from the point of view of Bon, the most shamanistic of the Tibetan spiritual traditions. Chod is used in Tibet today to treat mental and physical illness and as a path to awareness.
