Shang Shung Publications Newsletter

Dear Readers,

We are very happy to announce the availability of the New Edition of the book of CHÖD, Teachings and Practice.

“Why is the practice taught by Machig Labdrön called Chöd? In general Chöd means cutting. Here it signifies cutting through our ego. The Prajñaparamita teaches that the worst problem we have is our ego, and she understood the impor tance of this crucial point. Aryadeva explained it very well in The Essence of the Method of the Prajñaparamita. This poem contains some profoundly significant verses, and if we know their mean ing, we can understand the principle of Chöd”.

Aryadeva’s words are translated and commented by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in this new revised version of the practice of Chöd that contains also the Tibetan text of the practice translated into English, and the notation on how to play the damaru according to the instructions transmitted by the Master.

We wish you a happy new year!

Enjoy the reading!
