Banyen's Description: 

In Chöd in the Ganden Tradition we encounter not only the life and teachings of one of the greatest Tibetan masters in modern times, but also instructions in one of the most interesting Tibetan techniques for working with basic fears, applicable to Chöd practitioners from all lineages. The instructions are offered with the engaging directness, wit, and stories for which Rinpoche was legendary.

He tells miraculous stories of the Ganden Oral Lineage masters and then gives detailed explanations of the actual practice, including such topics as the degree of fear “necessary” for Chöd practice and how “to remember dream and death, morning, noon, and night.” Also provided are the Chöd sadhanas for chanting in English, with optional CD recordings and DVDs available (at

“A fabulous book—uplifting and enlightening. David Molk has done a most excellent job of presenting the Chöd teachings (“Cutting Out Self-Grasping from the Root”) from the late great Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. David’s many years of study and practice shine through in his re-telling of this most amazing Dharma legacy. Although the book is entitled Chöd in the Ganden Tradition, all Chöd practitioners will find it useful and enlightening, regardless of their particular lineage affiliation.” —Glenn Mullin

“The Chöd offers us a method to forcefully cut off the source of our most undesirable negativities—self-cherishing and ego-grasping. In this book the translators have rendered into English both the Chöd texts and its commentary given by His Holiness, the late Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was the foremost master of the Ganden oral tradition following the passing of the two gurus of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in the early 1980’s.” —Gehlek Rinpoche

Publisher’s Description: 

The late Zong Rinpoche was famous among Buddhists for his teachings on Chod, a system for working with our fears. This is the first book published of this well-known lama's teaching.
