Details

Texts, diary excerpts and photos recount this archaic ritual, deeply rooted in the notion of Universal Compassion and chiefly aimed at severing the practitioner's attachment to his physical body and overcoming identification with his own illusory ego. The work is also enriched by the sacred ritual text The secret Wisdom Dakini (Khandro Sangha Yeshe) translated for this volume by Geshe Gelek Jinpa, and by a DVD containing a short super-8 film by the author, as well as the liturgical chod chant performed by the monks of the bonpo monastery Triten Norbutse in Nepal.
