Machig Labdrön was an 11th century Tibetan yogini most well known for developing the practice and teachings of Chöd as well as many Nature of Mind practices. She was recognized by the great scholars of her day to be an authentic master and had thousands of disciples, both men and women. Machig Labdrön is one of the few Tibetan women to establish practice lineages of her own, and her Chöd lineages can be found in nearly every school of Tibetan Buddhism.
Although Machig Labdron is most well known for her teachings on Chod (Cutting Through), the core of her teachings is meditation on the nature of mind. During this day we will look at some of her profound teachings, and alternate between meditation, teachings and dialogue.
Lama Tsultrim Allione found and translated the biography (namthar) of Machig Labdrön for her ground-breaking book, Women of Wisdom. In 2007, Lama Tsultrim was formally recognized as an emanation of Machig. Since then, her main work has been to collect and re-establish the lineage of Machig at Tara Mandala, her retreat center in Colorado.
