The Chöd is one of the oldest sadhanas on earth, predating the organized religions that we know today. And it is an ancient spiritual practice wherein the constituents of consciousness of body, of speech, and of mind are offered as food to relieve the suffering of all sentient beings and especially those beings trapped in all of the worlds in cyclic existence.
This idea is at the basis of spiritual life. It’s an opportunity to be of service to others. And in so doing – the have the opportunity to learn and awaken to your own true nature. The revelation of the Cho is that eternity is a reality. It exists. Yet at the same time it is empty and void. It is the great paradox of consciousness. And it’s what we spend untold time in eternity coming to understand and finally realize. The awakened are those beings that have realized this truth and flow in eternity in an awakened condition, eternally present and awake. And it is the true condition.
To celebrate the Chöd on All Hallows’ Eve is especially significant. It is truly a celebration worthy of your wildest and most splendid costume. So dress up and join the party!
