I found this wonderful practice. Does this require empowerment or transmission? Does anyone know?

As far as I know it requires both empowerment, oral transmission and in particular instructions. However this text belong to the Longchen Nyingthig and that is a transmission many lamas have. It shouldn't be impossible to find a Lama and request it.

Here you can find further information on this practice: http://www.wisdom-books.com/ProductDetail.asp?PID=20632

Heart is right. This practice and lineage is quite prevalent. You can get the lung for this practice.

I'm so sorry, OgyenChodzom, but that particular sadhana is under the protection of copywrite and when I attempted to save it to my hard drive I found it was locked to anyone but the owner. I don't think it's meant to be distributed.

But fortunately your question was answered. I read through the text and it certainly appears that it requires direct transmission to actually use it. I'm glad you enjoyed reading it though! I hope you feel satisfied about your inquiry and that you pursue such fruitful avenues.

These copwrited texts make their way to the Internet all the time, but I'm going to remove it now unless we get permission from the owner to distribute it.

Kind wishes,
Laura :)

It is said that in Chöd, one empowerment, Opening of the Sky Door, "open the gateway to any and all Chöd practices."

The School of Tibetan Healing Chöd (www.tibetanchod.com) offers empowerment and instruction in this practice. (Module 1 gives the empowerment, Module 3 the instruction.) If you serious about this particular practice, and I believe one should take practicing Chöd seriously, the School does offer an absolutely superb training. Really, I can't recommend it highly enough.

By the way, in the Ngondro of Longchen Nyingtik there is another, shorter Chöd practice (Kusali Tsog) – also with Dzogchen features.

Best Regards,

Jens

Now THIS really interests me!!

EDIT: I just realized that there is only one tibetan sangha to where I'm moving under the guidance of Tromge Ling, and I contacted them last year saying I'd be moving there this year, I wanted to know more about their center. I recognized the name of the woman from the center on the directory of Chagdud Gonpa Foundation Directory of Centers I've been corresponding with... interesting coincidence that it happens to be EXACTLY what I'm looking to study...?

Wow, I was looking for a sign to indicate to me where I need to go, now I feel like I've just seen the shine of a trail...

Chagdud Gonpa sangha's practice the Dudjom Tersar lineage primarily. The Dudjom Tersar Chod is extraordinary.

The nuns of Orgyen Samye Chökhor Ling in Sarnath, India, perform the entire practice of the Bellowing Laugh of the Dakini by Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa.
This is available on CD and is wonderful and very healing.

not all dakinis are such a blessing...

some are very deceptive and very worldly. better one knows what they are doing than to rely on Internet "free" practices.

in other words, awareness, then more awareness and even still more boring old awareness.......
