Dentog Chigma: Chöd Retreat

With Drüpon Lama Karma

August 30 - September 3, 2017

Dentog Chigma is the main sadhana practice within the Rinchen Trengwa (‘The Mala of Jewels’), the collection of practices in Machig’s Kama (oral) lineage compiled by Karmapa Rangjung Dorje and Karma Chakme. Dentog Chigma literally means ‘Liberation on One Seat.’ This marvelous practice is sung with a melody and accompanied by Chöd drum and bell and also involves mantra accumulations. Dentog Chigma is required for Magyu students and recommended for anyone who is serious about the Chöd lineage. Drüpon Lama Karma studied this practice for many years with his root teacher Lama Naljorpa, the great Tibetan Yogi who escaped to Bhutan and the principle student of the tertön Pegyal Lingpa. 

This retreat is a required retreat for the Magyu: Mother Lineage Program.
