Significance of days 9th, 19th, and 29th in chöd?

Postby Dharmaswede » Sun Jan 26, 2014 11:55 am

"There are three days each lunar month (the 9th, 19th and 29th days) that are especially good for Chöd practice. "

I notice that these days are not for "wake or memorial" in FPMT.

I asked about that in the comments on that page but got no reply. I think I also posted a question about it before on here. Anyway, I think days with 9 in, especially the 29th are good days for chod for the same reason they are good for protector offerings/practice and obstacle dispelling practice. But then, I'm not sure what that reason is.

Not at all. I still haven't heard an explanation and I'm pleased you posted the question. Thanks.

Anyone know why '9' days are good for chod, protectors, etc.?
