Newly-translated Patrul Rinpoche Chod text

Post by Atiyogini » Fri Aug 18, 2017 4:30 pm

Tashi delek, Chodpas! For an exemplary teaching on how NOT to practice Chod, please enjoy a new translation of a brilliant short satirical piece by the renowned nineteenth century Nyingma lama Dza Patrul Rinpoche. "Town-roaming Chod practitioners" is a unique mock-ritual that hilariously critiques bogus Chod practitioners. Available to read and/or download at http://www.zangthal.co.uk/files.html

Buddhahood in This Life
འ༔ ཨ༔ ཧ༔ ཤ༔ ས༔ མ༔


[A]nything at all that is well spoken is the word of the Buddha.

-- Ārya-adhyāśaya-sañcodana-nāma-mahāyāna-sūtra

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.

-- Samadhirāja Sūtra

Man, that Paltrul Rinpoche was a card!

Great stuff. Pretty sure I've seen a few practitioners of this sadhana near Boudha.......
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")

Though I don't really know what Chod :tongue: is, something like this is applicable to every form of religion. :rolling:

Thanks for sharing, yeah.
Thus, there is not a single one who has entered into this teaching who fails to attain buddhahood.

Please tell me this is part of an actual genre of texts (is satire really a thing in Tibetan?). If so, where can we find more?!

Reminds me a little of Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche's work on the Four Schools of TB (too bad he didn't poke fun at Jonang, or Bön for that matter...)

"The Sutras, Tantras, and Philosophical Scriptures are great in number. However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it's hard to cover them completely. You may know a lot, but if you don't put it into practice, it's like dying of thirst on the shore of a great lake. Likewise, a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar." ~ Karma Chagme

དྲིན་ཆེན་རྩ་བའི་བླ་མ་སྐྱབས་རྗེ་མགར་ཆེན་ཁྲི་སྤྲུལ་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ཁྱེད་མཁྱེན་ནོ།།
རྗེ་བཙུན་བླ་མ་མཁས་གྲུབ་ཀརྨ་ཆགས་མེད་མཁྱེན་ནོ། ཀརྨ་པ་མཁྱེན་ནོཿ
