The Chod is an ancient Tibetan practice used for healing – on physical, mental and karmic levels. The word Chod means to cut or sever – cutting attachments to things that cause suffering – such as old traumas, fears, anger or resentment. During a Healing Chod the monks will use chants and sounts to assist in cutting the attachments. Participants should be prepared to lie or sit on the floor for approximately on hour - chairs, yoga mats and other props will be provided.
OBJECTIVE OF MONASTERY'S TOUR
A) To make a contribution to world healing and peace by sharing unique Tibetan Buddhist teachings, sacred religious performances, chanting, and Tibet's unique identity treasures of culture and authentic traditions.
B) Recognizing well, and very deeply, that there have been great tragedies in every part of the world, we want to share our sympathy and prayers together with you as human beings sharing this planet and sharing the future of this home of ours.
C) To generate a greater awareness of the endangered Tibetan civilization and human rights abuses by the Communist Chinese since 1959. As the situation in Tibet is becoming more desperate by the day, due to massive displacement of Tibetans by Chinese citizens sent there by the Communist government, and ever new rules and difficulties, especially at the monasteries, we need your help now.
D) To raise support for the refugee monks' community in south India for proper food, improvement in health & hygiene and for providing better education facilities for the monk students. We preserve our tradition and culture
