Tibetan Bön Chöd Practice with Geshe Denma: Dissolving Fear through Sound

A Guided Meditation practice

During this COVID 19 world crisis, Geshe Denma invites you to join his daily zoom practice of Tibetan Bön Chöd every night at 8:30 pm CDT beginning on May 7, 2020.

Chöd is a traditional Tibetan way of removing emotional conflicts and dissatisfaction by compassionately disconnecting the fear and attachment that obscure your true nature of mind. Geshe Denma practices Bön Chöd to face fear and to cut through the root causes of suffering: the three poisons of aversion, attachment, and ignorance. Through practicing Chöd, your body engages internally with drum and bell, your speech engages energetically with beautiful singing and chanting, and your mind engages with visualization. The whole practice envelopes and evokes deep connections within the practitioner. Cutting through fear in whatever form, allows us to open and release into joyful creativity allowing the possibility to connect with the true nature of mind: Open, Awake, and Fearless.

All are welcome to join him nightly when you can.

Teaching by Geshe Denma Gyaltsen, Resident Lama

Geshe Denma Gyaltsen is the resident lama of Ligmincha Texas. He arrived in Houston in January 2016 to serve as Ligmincha Texas’s first resident lama.

Geshe Denma was born in northern Nepal. His father brought him to Menri Monastery, India, regarded as the mother Bon monastery in exile, in 1981 to begin his program of study toward the Geshe degree. He received all the Bon teachings, initiations and transmissions in sutra, tantra and dzogchen from His Holiness Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, the 33rd Menri Trizin, and His Eminence Yongdzin Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche.

When he became a senior student, he was asked to teach philosophy to younger students. He successfully completed this degree program in 1996 and was awarded the Geshe certificate, which is considered equivalent to a Ph.D. in Bön Buddhist philosophy and religion.

Geshe Denma was an accomplished teacher and in 1998 was appointed, with the approval of the Tibetan government in exile, first abbot of Zhu Rishing Yungdrung Kundak-Ling Monastery, a Bon Monastery in Sikkim, India by His Holiness. He served two terms in this capacity until 2003. In addition, from the time he graduated until 2008, Geshe Denma also was active in assisting Geshe Nyima Dakpa with the Bon Children’s Home, which houses many children in Dolanji, India, providing them with food, healthcare and free education.
