Dentog Chigma: The Method for Accomplishment on One Seat
With Lama Tsultrim Allione, Magyu Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam and Pieter Oosthuizen
April 25 - 29, 2019
The profound practice of Dentog Chigma, “Liberation on One Seat,” combines the melodic and rhythmic aspects of traditional Chöd with the visualization and mantra recitation of deity practice. It is the main sadhana practice within the Rinchen Trengwa, “Precious Garland,” the collection of practices in Machig’s Kama (oral) lineage compiled by Karmapa Rangjung Dorje and Karma Chakme. This specific practice was transmitted by Lama Tsering Wangdu at Tara Mandala in 2008, and is “at the absolute core of Machig’s lineage” according to Lama Tsultrim Allione.
Participants will need to have a Chöd drum and bell, both of which can be purchased in the Tara Mandala Dakini store.
Dentog Chigma is required for Magyu students and recommended for anyone who is serious about the Chöd lineage.
Suggested Dana: $200 – $250
