Can anyone point me to information on Shije (the practice introduced by PhaDampa Sangye).

What does the practice center around (without obviously giving away info protected by samayas)? For example, Chod focuses on offering the body as way of overcoming dualistic thinking (in the form of the lha-dre) based on ideas in the prajnaparamita literature (poor explanation I know). Does Shije do this too or is it something totally different?

Is there still an unbroken Shije lineage?

Any info gratefully received.

Yes, I think so. For sure the empowerment's and transmission exist.

There's a useful description of the Zhije system in Ringu Tulku's book about Rime.

http://www.shambhala.com/html/catalog/items/isbn/978-1-59030-286-6.cfm

And there's this earlier thread http://www.dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=3767&start=0

Lama Tsering Wangdu holds the Shinje lineage. http://www.lamawangdu.org/ Rinpoche visits the US annually for about six months, residing mostly in Portland. But he does get invited to several places in US to teach. He has a close student who runs this center http://www.phadampa.org/

You can also read Lama Wangdu's biography, Hundred Thousand Rays of the Sun (from Amazon) - which tells of his birth in Dingri (Padampa Sangye's holy place) and how he is connected to the Shinje and Chod lineages.

Funny, I just posted to the "Shije in North America" thread.....there's some info regarding what Shije entails in the book I just read--go take a look at that thread, because I'm too lazy to cut and paste!! :smile:
