Album Notes
The practice of T'hroma contains the complete path of the Vajrayana, from ngondro (the preliminary practices) all the way through the Dzogchen (Great Perfection) practices of trekchod and t'hogal. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche’s reputation as one of the great T'hroma singers was widespread in Asia. This digital recording of the Chod songs was made at his seat Chagdud Gonpa Khadro Ling, in Tres Coroas, Brazil, near the end of his life.

HIS EMINENCE CHAGDUD TULKU RINPOCHE-meditation master, teacher and artist-held many great lineages of the Nyingma tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism from Tibet: the Dudjom, Khyentse, Apong Terton, Khenpo Ngaga, Padgyal Lingpa and Longchen Nyingt'hig. Founder of Chagdud Gonpa Foundation and Chagdud Gonpa Brasil, he constructed the first Tibetan traditional temple in Latin American. He also authored several books on Buddhism and the path of meditation including, Life in Relation to Death, Gates to Buddhist Practice and his autobiography, Lord of the Dance.

Chagdud 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 beings in this way."


"This is an excellent recording." -- Snow Lion Publications

(5 stars) Authentic tradition, July 29, 2004
Reviewer at Valerie Ommanipadmehung. "This is a recording of one of the greatest chod masters of the twentieth century. It is the embodiment of the buddhist principle of bodhichitta. More than just music, it is the supreme act of giving."

(5 stars) Essence of Vajrayana, March 11, 2003
Reviewer at Luigi (Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil).
"If you are a practitioner of the Nyingma lineage, this CD is a great buy! If you like tibetan prayers, buy it too!"

Great aid to practice
If you are a Chod-pa and have received the transmission, this is an excellent resource in maintaining your practice. It may be a bit obscure to other listeners, but is well worth it for the cultural and metaphysical benefits contained within.
