I've just viewed the wonderful DVD; "Blessings - The Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns of Tibet". I am wondering if anyone can tell us which Chod they practice and what their main lineage practices are?http://www.pundarika.org/news/?cat=14
I think they are Drukpa Kagyu since this is the incarnation lineage of Tsoknyi Rinpoche. However as you can see from the Tsoknyi life story below below there is a very strong Nyingma connection since he was a Terton and a student of many great Dzogchen masters. This is also true for the current Tsoknyi that is a son of Tulku Urgyen. Wonderful teacher.
"Drubwang Tsoknyi, Padma Drimé Özer (Wyl. tshogs gnyis pad+ma dri med 'od zer) (1828/49-1904) — an emanation of Milarepa's disciple, Rechungpa, and the Nyingmapa tertön Ratna Lingpa. He was born in Nangchen, Eastern Tibet, in the first half of the 19th century and was a contemporary of the three great lamas of the time: Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, Jamgön Kongtrul and Chokgyur Lingpa. He fully mastered the practices of the Six Yogas of Naropa and became the principal guru for the Sixth Khamtrul Rinpoche, Tenpé Nyima (1849-1907), and the great master Tokden Shakya Shri. He excelled in the yogas of the Nyingma tradition of Ratna Lingpa as well, which laid the foundation for establishing many nunneries of this special lineage, which was unique in Tibet." http://www.rigpawiki.org/index.php?titl ... ng_Tsoknyi
"The direct, hard to understand, subtle field of knowing, the Great Path, is non-conceptual (akalpana), and entirely beyond the grasp of intellectual thought. Divorced from verbal ideation, it is difficult to point out and as difficult to enquire into. It cannot be communicated through words and [therefore] is not within the scope of the neophyte (adikarmika). Nevertheless the path is to be approached through studying scriptures (sutra) of the World-Teacher and following the personal instructions (upadesa) of one's Guru-ji."
