If possible, it is very helpful to bring a Chöd damaru (drum), Vajra bell and Kangdhung (traditional bone or copper horn) or conch shell. If you don’t have a damaru or kangdhung, there will be a few available at Sakya Monastery. Please also bring tsok.
Before coming to Chod Practice, please listen to Chod CD with the Sadhana. If you don’t have the CD and Sadhana, they are available from the Monastery Bookshop and from Tulku Yeshi. The benefit of Chod is that is frees you from the suffering caused by ego. It helps you generate love and compassion for all sentient beings. Chod also provides physical and mental healing.
