Chöd is a spiritual practice found in Tibetan Buddhism that means, essentially, “to sever” or to “cut through one’s ego”. The practitioner of Chöd sets himself to wander in fearful places populated by both gods and demons and to offer one’s own body as food to them, realizing the true nature of the mind and to cut through subtle ignorance. It has been described as a special form of mysticism that unites shamanism with meditative practices.
“In Chöd-practice, the yogi or yogini journeys into the night world—the dangerous regions of ghosts, spirits and the damned, to bless all souls lost for a time on the wheel of existence. The selflessness of the practitioner’s compassion, his or her contact with spirits of the other-world, and the making of himself into a vehicle of healing, all tends to become a path for the hero to win the noetic Mind-Jewel of true awakening.” — Dharma Fellowship
