dancing with softness
feminine embraces life
listening to wind

the lake shimmers waves

meditative ease

From the Alps, a Chød [Haiku Poem]

Looking for beauty,
flowers in a vase are mine
I cut through it best.

What is Chød?

Chød [or Chöd] is a Tibetan Buddhist practice. The word means ‘to cut through’ When practicing Chød we are cutting through illusions, provocations, challenges and difficulties to transform them into the non-dual luminosity.
It is a practice developed by 11th century Tibetan Tantric Yogini – Machig Labdrön.
Normally the practice is done with a drum and a bell.
