Dudjom Lingpa's Chod
Two invaluable chod commentaries in one book: An Ambrosia Ocean of Sublime Explanations and The Profound Heart Essence of Saraha.
Composed by one of Heruka Dudjom Lingpa's disciples, Pema Lungtok Gyatso, An Ambrosia Ocean of Sublime Explanations is a word-by-word commentary on the terton’s own chod revelation known as Heart Essence of Saraha. Both works are included in the book Dudjom Lingpa's Chod.
An Ambrosia Ocean of Sublime Explanations -- A Clearly Compiled Commentary Based upon the Close Lineage of Chod: a translation of the extensive (741 folio page) chod commentary by Pema Lungtok Gyatso, a foremost disciple of Dudjom Lingpa.
"The exceptional commentary by Pema Lungtok Gyatso is an exquisite treatise that encompasses the teachings on Chod entirely and fully illumines these unparalleled transmissions." --Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche
Heart Essence of Saraha: Root commentary on the Troma Nagmo severance liturgy revealed by Heruka Dudjom Lingpa covering thirteen sections of chod practice transmitted to him from the Treasury Expanse of the Spacelike Dharmata by the crown jewel of Indian mahasiddhas, Saraha. This second edition is a complete retranslation of the Heart Essence chod text and is included in the Dudjom Lingpa's Chod book along with the commentary by Pema Lungtok Gyatso.
As Part Two in the book, this commentary includes both common and uncommon preliminary instructions, the three-kaya meditation-recitation practice, the pointing-out instructions for identifying the view associated with the four samayas of Mahasandhi, the stages of generation and completion, the way of wandering through fear-invoking environments, the methods for identifying upheavals and for accumulating merit, such as the practice of the four feasts, and various other subjects that belong to the path of chod.
