'The Tsogley Rinpoche Trengwa or simply Rinchen Trengwa is the main long Chöd ritual practiced by Kagyu and Nyingma lamas and yogis. Those practicing either the Machik or Nyingtik Chö, Drikung Chöd, or any of dozens of other terma traditions Including the Dudjom Tersar rely on the Precious Rosary as an extensive Tsok ritual. Others take it as their main practice, doing the full practice daily or focusing on different sections each day. Two such monasteries, strictly devoted to the Rinchen Trengwa, currently exist in Bhutan. The Precious Rosary is also ideal for group or solo retreats of 7, 14 or 30 days or longer. For all however, it is a comprehensive path, containing all the elements of both Chöd and Vajrayana.
There are four different melodic traditions and variations; That practiced by Tsewong Sitar Rinpoche contains over 40 melodies, each one seemingly more haunting and powerful than the next. Fortunately, through his father, he has been able to provide the traditional name of each of the melodies, which have now been recorded singly for study and preservation. '
