Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche’s reputation as one of the great T’hroma singers was widespread in Asia. This digital recording made near the end of his life presents a rare opportunity to hear this great master of the T’hroma Chod.

Rinpoche writes in the liner notes, “Traditionally in Tibet, a person would be required to have empowerment in order to learn and practice the chod feasts as these are profound teachings from the Great Perfection. But this practice is known as “t’hod drol’ which means that it possesses the quality of liberating upon hearing. I am releasing this recording openly because of this potential to benefit being in this way.”

Chod is a method for overcoming hope and fear through the cultivation of supreme generosity.
