Revue de presse

"Sarah Harding's masterful translation is a real gift to students of Chöd and this extraordinary woman teacher. It provides much new material, including intimate question-and-answer sessions between Machik and her disciples. The translation has such a fresh, living quality, you almost feel you are receiving teachings directly from Machik Labdron herself."—Tsultrim Allione, author of Women of Wisdom and founder of the Tara Mandala Retreat Center

"In this remarkable work, Sarah Harding has combined her well-honed translation skills with her own practice experience to give us the most complete, detailed, lucid, and well-contextualized study to date of the meaning and practice of Machik's Chöd."—Jan Willis, author of Dreaming Me

"An important contribution to an understanding of Tibet's most innovative female saint, revealing her vast diversity of teachings that place Chöd squarely in the mainstream of tantric Buddhist meditation. Harding's translation deftly reveals new and rare biographical, anatomical, philosophic, and meditative lore essential to understanding the tradition as a whole."—Judith Simmer-Brown, professor at Naropa University and author of Dakini's Warm Breath

"Sarah Harding's magnificent translation of this key work of Machik Labkyi Dronma, Tibet's most famous yogini, opens up for Western practitioners the startling world of Chöd practice: severing the devil of ego-fixation. This meditation manual explains how the rich symbology of tantric yoga can be used in a disturbingly effective way to transform one's life."—Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism without Beliefs

"It is a very welcome addition to the literature on Tibetan Buddhism in Western languages, opening up the inner world of a fascinating and significant mode of spiritual practice in a way that is respectful, humorous, and true to the tradition it presents."—The Middle Way

"To experienced practitioners, the Tsadra Foundation Series is more precious than gold dust."—Tricycle

Présentation de l'éditeur

Fear, anger, and negativity are states that each of us have to contend with. Machik's Complete Explanation, the most famous book of the teachings of Machik Lapdrön, the great female saint and yogini of eleventh- to twelfth-century Tibet, addresses these issues in a practical, direct way.

Machik developed a system, the Mahamudra Chöd, that takes the Buddha's teachings as a basis and applies them to the immediate experiences of negative mind states and malignant forces. Her unique feminine approach is to invoke and nurture the very "demons" that we fear and hate, transforming those reactive emotions into love. It is the tantric version of developing compassion and fearlessness, a radical method of cutting through ego-fixation.

This expanded edition includes Machik Lapdrön's earliest known teaching, the original source text for the tradition, The Great Bundle of Precepts on Severance (Chöd). This pithy set of instructions reveals that the teachings of the perfection of wisdom are the true inspiration for Chöd. It is beautifully clarified in a short commentary by Rangjung Dorje, the Third Karmapa.

HASH(0x924d9894) étoiles sur 5 The Chod of Mahamudra - Machik's complete explanation 16 novembre 2004
Par Peacock Eye - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Machik Labron, historically a Tibetan woman (11th-12th century) and contemporary of Milarepa, was an adept, an outstanding teacher, a mother, as well as the founder of a unique transmission lineage known as the Chod of Mahamudra.

Chod (Severance) is based on the Prajnaparamita teachings of Buddhist mahayana, and refers to cutting through the grasping at a self and its afflictions. Chod is particularly famous for its teaching on transforming the aggregates of self into an offering of food for demons, as a compassionate act of self-sacrifice.

"With the hook of compassion I catch those evil spirits. Offering them my warm flesh and warm blood as food, through the kindness and compassion of bodhichitta, I transform the way they see everything, and make them my disciples." (Machik Labdron)

The general attitude of the Chod practice is that the meditator does not renounce the world by protecting him- or herself from afflictive emotions, but deliberately evokes these emotions by entering situations or encountering objects that will make them arise, in order to cut through (chod) them and use them on the path of meditation.

This great book, which is already "Machik's complete explanation", together with "Machig Labdron and the Foundations of Chod" by Jerome Edou (ISBN 1559390395), will give the reader a thorough and complete overview of this great subject.

"To consider adversity as a friend
is the instruction of Chod"
- Machig Labdron

HASH(0x93116f48) étoiles sur 5 Skip the Intro 27 janvier 2012
Par Dr. Dean - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The introduction has, like many of the translator's work, a distracting feminist slant. Rather than taking Tibet Buddhism as it is, it is instead seen through the lens of Western sexism. When Machik is told of her destiny she is surprised, like all of us would be. She doubts herself, as all of us would. The translator views this as "a bout of female low self esteem". It might actually be a bout of "low self esteem" or self doubt that is universal in nature. Later, when Machik comes to achieve her compassionate embrace of all beings, she is able to do that in a way that is "particularly feminine and motherly" and "lives up to the feminine stereotype of nurturing and nourishing." But that stereotype is not Tibetan, it is Harding's. In Tibetan tantra yab-yum the Mother Diety is Wisdom and the Father is Compassion. The view of emptiness is the feminine and the bodhicitta is masculine. So, these and other feminist views not only distract they can distort the value of this work. Skip the introduction.

HASH(0x94baec60) étoiles sur 5 The Meaning of Chod 4 décembre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The ancient religion of Bon Pa predates Buddhism in Tibet. Among the spiritual practices utilized by Bon Pa (which is Shamanistik in essence) the Chod rite is one of the most sublime and beautiful. Chod is an act of compassion which liberates tortured incorporeal beings such as ghosts and demons from their suffering by entering into direct intimate contact with these confused, angry, and lost beings and offering-up one's very beingness in communion and total empathy thereby providing the chance for their liberation and possible rebirth as a human beings.
Chod is a very complex and extremely dangerous ritual which should only be undertaken by the adept who has received extensive training and the blessing of their guru. This book does a incredible job of explicating Chod, written by Machig Labdron, who is the woman adept who created this powerful healing practice. A wonderful book from the very source of Chod!

HASH(0x92668e58) étoiles sur 5 Not for beginners 31 décembre 2012
Par John S. Baker - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is very important to the Cho tradition. It contains the life of Machik Labron as well as her teachings. It is simple and clear IF you have the background. Cho, the cutting off of attachments to the world including your own ego, is a grizzly teaching that attracts outsiders. That completely misses the message of this book. Cho is about renouncing the world and your own attachment to it. The imagery is colorful, but the purpose demands training and dedication. If you accopmplish this teaching you will develop the profound desire to dedicate yourself to the Buddhist path. But do not think that you can do this without a qualified Tibetan-trained teacher.

I received initiation and instruction twenty years ago and I am still not capable to undertaking this practice. However, it has been helpful to study this translation and get a fresh perspective on the "demons" which obstruct the practitioner on the path.

The first two chapters give the life of Machik. After that the material is teachings on practice. Reading this in any way that does not lead to practice is a waste of time. If you put this text into practice you could easily spend the rest of your life on it. I have a teacher and follow instructions, but in addition I continue studying. This book has been helpful in pursuing teachings as instructions for me and also to broaden my understanding of the personal instructions of my teacher.

I am familiar with other versions of this material, the four demons, for instance. The present translator seems to find words that are easy for me to remember. Things seem less abstract and more concrete the way she expresses them.
