Cool. A great opportunity for everyone able to watch/listen in. I understand there is no specific wang for the khando'i gejung so it would be interesting to see what form such a transmission usually takes and how Rinpoche does it.

He probably give a "lung-tri", that is a "lung" with explanations, like he did today with Machick Ladron's "Great bundle of precepts" (http://gdamsngagmdzod.tsadra.org/index. ... f_Precepts" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;)

Hi,
I have just noticed this thread about Tsewong Rinpoche - can I just let you all know that RInpoche, Lama Jinpa and Lama Pema are coming to London this May/June (2013).
I also have had only positive experiences with the school!
Here is a link to more details:
http://www.tibetanchod.com/events/england/

They are also doing a Wild Chod day in London - practicing in some graveyards and also visiting and touring London with students (afternoon tea included)!

Best Wishes
Claire

Sorry, I know it is a very old thread but I specifically want to clarify whether or not there is a specific wang for the Sound of Dakini Laughter Practice. Also, which teachers besides Lama Wangdu are currently offering this teaching in Nepal?

Thank you

Kechari. To my knowledge in Boudha there is a weekly Chod group at White Go pa where they usually practice a lujin Chod. They may on occasion do khandro gayjang.

Probably a good idea to receive Yumka Dechen Gyalmo empowerment, though. There's only a peaceful dakini (Dechen Gyalmo) and wrathful dakini (Sengedongma) empowerment in LN, and other practices (like Tara, maybe) rely on those.

No, you just need to receive direct introduction.

What do you mean by "direct introduction", what term are you translating here? I assume you would also need lung and tri?

I suppose I'm wondering what the difference between nam mkha'i sgo 'byed, ngo sprod spras pa and rig pa'i rtsal dbang is.

Just to add, I think it's quite a Longchen Nyingthig thing to receive empowerments and that rather than just rely on direct introduction(?)

This particular chod is grounded in Dzogchen. All you need to practice this chod is direct introduction, ala, first phrase of Garab Dorje.

Of course you also need the lung for the practice, but you certainly do not need to receive any kind of empowerment, including "the opening of the sky door." Having said that, it is not a fault to receive Dechen Gyalmo, etc. It just isn't necessary.

This of course has a lot to do with a difference in perspective about empowerments from an Ati point of view and a Maha or Anuyoga point of view.
