Chöd is a lifelong spiritual practice for one’s personal evolution.
But it is also a unique and extremely effective means for healing
others. Part of the remarkable legacy of Machik Labdrön, the
propagator of Chöd in Tibet, is a set of healing practices that clear
the underlying causes of psychological and physical illness, while
propelling us towards ultimate enlightenment. For centuries, wandering
Chöd practitioners were well known in Tibet for their ability to heal
illness, stop epidemics and pacify local conflicts.
Tsewong Sitar Rinpoche and his retreatants, monks and yogis perform
Chöd on a weekly and monthly basis. As part of the Tibetan Healing Chö

Tsewong Sitar Rinpoche
Lama Tsewong Sitar Rinpoche is the head of the historic Sangye Teng Monastery in eastern Bhutan. He began his studies at the tender age of four, under the tutelage of his renowned father, learning Buddhist philosophy and Tibetan reading and writing. Having spent more than twenty years in meditative retreat in his Himalayan hermitage, he was recognized as the rebirth of Nubchen Sangye Yeshe (heart disciple of Padmasambhava), by His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse. He holds the lineage of Terton Pegyal Lingpa and is master of the Longchen Nyingtig. A dynamic and powerful teacher, he is particularly known for his profound teachings on Dzokchen. Rinpoche is also a qualified stupa builder, having created a number of these sacred power structures in the America and Asia.
Tsewong Sitar Rinpoche has spent more than 20 years in meditative retreat. He is a penultimate master of many forms of Chöd: MaChik, Nyingtik, Dudjom, Shukseb, PeGyal and other minor lineages. Moreover, he embodies the ideal of a realized Dzogchen master, with immense compassion, humility and good nature. Rinpoche is a householder and brings the essence of dharma and Chöd to bear in all aspects of daily living.
Sitar Rinpoche has a profound knowledge and realization of the practice of chö. His monastery specializes in the practice of various chö lineages: the complete systems of Machik (Kagyu), the Nyingtig chö and the chö and Troma practices of the Dudjom Tersar. He is also the lineage holder of the Pegyal Lingpa chö, and other lesser know chö teachings and practices. Rinpoche will be providing empowerments and transmissions for all the texts and practices for the School of Healing Chö.
