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 Chod practice and how "to remember dream and death, morning, noon, and night." Also provided are the Chod sadhanas for chanting in English, with optional CD recordings and DVDs available.
"A fabulous book--uplifting and enlightening. David Molk has done a most excellent job of presenting the Chod teachings ("Cutting Out Self-Grasping from the Root") from the late great Kyabje Song 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 "Chod in the Ganden Tradition," all Chod practitioners will find it useful and enlightening, regardless of their particular lineage affiliation."--Glenn Mullin, author
"In Chod In the Ganden Tradition, we finally have a wonderful testament to the wisdom, compassion and erudition of one of Tibet's greatest twentieth century Buddhist masters, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Those who have had the good fortune to listen to the late Kyabje Rinpoche will recognize the immediacy, freshness and humor of this great master's teachings captured beautifully in this wonderful book. With this book, the translators have also brought an important aspect of Tsongkhapa's more mystical teachings to the English speaking world."--Thupten Jinpa
"The Chod 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 Chod 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 1980s."--Gehlek Rimpoche
