Lamchen Gyalpo R. - Feb. 2014

Postby Karma Jinpa » Sat Dec 14, 2013 8:07 am

Lamchen Gyalpo Rinpoche, one of the foremost masters of Chöd in the Drikung Kagyu lineage, will be headlining the upcoming Winter Teachings at Drong Ngur Jangchubling in the Tampa, FL area. His main concern during this visit seems to be imparting the practice of Chöd to students, and thus Rinpoche will be bestowing an empowerment, giving teachings, and leading a practice session to that end.

According to the teaching schedule, Gyalpo Rinpoche "has collected many different Chöd practices used in the Drikung Lineage and put them together as one book. This book has Yangzab Terma Chöd practices, a Chöd practice from Lord Jigten Sumgön, [...] and many other versions from both Nyingma and Kagyu traditions." The mention of this could indicate that he will be using this volume to teach from and/or that transmissions of some of these practices might be given.

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, it happens that a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar." ~ Karma Chagme

I have inquired about further details on the tome, and if there will be transmission given for any or all the practices it contains, but thus far have received no response.

The mention of this book could simply be to illustrate Lamchen Gyalpo Rinpoche's vast knowledge and experience on the subject, or that he'll be using that Chöd text to teach from...

However, I suspect that following the empowerment he'll give at least some lung. Just a hunch.

I am fairly certain can back me up on this. But after spending many years going threough the Yangzab texts as well as having many of them translated I mave never come acroww a Yangzab Chod test. I would love to be mistaken and that such a text might exist, but it is not mentioned in the terma index for the Yangzab. The first teachings publically given on Lamchen Gyalpo Rinpoches Chod arrangement was for the DDCV event last May. At that time the Chod text was translated. This is the same text that was used for the Florida teachings. The Chod arrangement primary draws on Kunga Rinchen, Lord Jigten Sumgon and Lho Nuden Dorje. Nowhere is the Yangzab referenced nor is GYalwang Rinchen Phuntsok mentioned in the colophon. I think that a mistake was made in the advertising for the Florida teachings. Also in discussions with Lamchen Gyalpo Rinpoche about his Chod arrangement no mention was never made of any of it deriving from the Yangzab. But again I would love to be mistaken and find that such a text exists.
