The Lama who has given Cho empowerment, transmission and commentary in the US has been Lho Ontul Rinpoche on two consecutive tours. On bothe tours the empowerment text used was Drikung Lho Nuden Dorje's Rainbow Chod. On one tour the text he taught on was requested by a Karma Kagyu lama if I remember correctly and Lho Nuden Dorje consented and composed this practice. Often Lho Ontul Rinpoche has used this practice when performing Healing Chods. On another tour he taught on a Pure Vision Chod text which is part of Lho Nuden Dorje's Dechen Nyingpo cycle and is a ancillary practice. The actual Rainbow Body Chod practice text is a very unique and extensive Chod practice. We had that translated but it is not practical for most practitioners. I know of only one practitioner in the US that has truly received the instructions to do this practice though when Lho Thupten Nyingpo was here in the US in 2004 we filmed him doing this practice and slowly over time had a preliminary translation done of the practice. Lho Nuden Dorje also has a number of anciliary Chod practices such as smoke offerings, protector practices, a Chod Ngondro that are all quite interesting.
