We here at Heart Teachings wish you a wonderful, warm and auspicious New Year filled with blessings! To get your New Year and new decade off to a good start, we are offering a beautiful recording of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche reciting the Riwo Sang Chod (Mountain Smoke Offering) in the unelaborate trul-me style for streaming on SoundCloud. (Thank you Ken Janssen for recording this!)
While teaching on the Riwo Sang Chod practice at Pema Ösel Ling in 2009, Lama Tharchin Rinpoche counseled:
We have so many short-term temporary obstacles in this life and long-term obstacles to enlightenment. These obstacles are related to our karmic debts and it’s very important to remove them. This mountain smoke offering is the best way to both repay these karmic debts and remove obstacles. Plus, Riwo Sang Chod is the best and quickest method to receive blessings, obtain siddhis (spiritual accomplishments), and accumulate merit. The practice repairs all broken samaya and in this way clears our path to accomplishment. Riwo Sang Chod’s skillful aspect is directly related with the Great Perfection (Dzogchen) point of view.
We are offering Rinpoche's teachings on the Riwo Sang Chod practice in digital format with special pricing for January 2020. If you're a current subscribing member, contact us for an additional member's discount.
