    It is a common truism that the key to awakening is training and taming the mind. If we can just observe our state more keenly, our thoughts and the thinker, we will eventually find peace. Without even intending to do so, we privilege the mind in our meditation practice. But the mind alone will not free us. What we have missed in our enlightenment culture is that the essence of Bodhi, the…

    Chöd, which literally means “cutting,” is a powerful, dramatic practice of cutting through ego-clinging and delusion by visualizing the offering up of one’s body to all beings and karmic debtors. This is a potent method to sever all self-grasping and to usher oneself into the realization of emptiness. The system of practices is based on Prajnaparamita and set down by Padampa…
