Re: Online Courses/Shedra's

Among the ones I have tried out, this was my favorite: http://www.buddhistthought.org/ – assuming you mean online study programs, and not practice oriented ones.

Re: Is there a musical transmission in Dudjom Tersar Tröma Nakmo?

I’d agree that if you’re interested in the Dudjom Troma cycle it’s important to find a qualified Lama and ask them. This is sound advise, all around in Vajrayana. Different Lamas will have different styles of transmission. Incisive observation, which prevents a lot of confusion. Generally there are...

Re: Is there a musical transmission in Dudjom Tersar Tröma Nakmo?

In some Chod Sadhanas, there is a transmission of the melodies – in addition to the lung and the wang. Thus, there is a lung of the text, and then there is a transmission of the melodies. In practice, these can be given simultaneously but the point is that the melodies are an important enough part o...

Re: DIY Chod Drum?

Changing skins is not the primary focus of these clinics – and I don't know what kind of help you could get on that particular issue.

The issue of buckled skins has been discussed here on Dharmawheel before with promising suggestions on how to tackle it, search.

Re: Chod Damaru vs standard Damaru

What's wrathful Chod? The context of what I said previously was Dudjom Troma. Peaceful Chod is typically geared towards higher quests, such as Gurus, Yidams etc. Offering migh be nectar, 'cooked' from the body. So-called white feast. Wrathful Chod can be quite gory, addressing karmic debtors, demon...

Re: Jigten Sumgon Chod

I don't know anyone who would say it is ok to practice Chöd without lung, or special permission by a bona fide teacher. I understand you are interested in the Jigten Sumgon Chod, but offer the resources below as alternatives or training while you are pursuing the lung for it. You can practice Feedin...

Re: Wrathful deities

This is a vacuous assertion. Why? This kind of statement is found nowhere in the tantras, etc. It is a ridiculous assertion meant to intimidate people. I think I understand the intimidation point, however my sense is that the motivation in this case was very, very different. The assertion was based...

1. What would be some of the pros and cons for practicing with a wrathful deity?
One of my teachers told me you run a greater risk of damaging your nervous system with wrathful Yidams if you practice beyond your capacity, such as in retreat. The energy being more 'agitative'.
