The digital version of the booklet containing the explanations and practice text of Changchog of the Namchö Shitro, a Short Purification Ritual for the Dead as a Supplement to the Shitro of the Space Teachings as practiced during the last retreat with Rinpoche is now available from the webshop of the Shang Shung Institute.
It contains the transcription of the teaching given by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu on November 2007 at Merigar and the text of the practice. Here Chögyal Namkhai Norbu presents a new and authentic approach to death and after death embodied in a ritual whose aim is to purify the negative karma and obstacles of the deceased and to give the deceased a chance of accessing to a higher knowledge. This approach, in addition of being one of the best way to help the deceased, provides us with the strength to overcome the suffering of having lost our dear ones, and with the sense that through this ritual we can do something for our beloved ones who have died, making use of the special relation we had with them during their life. Connected to the Shitro Teachings of Namchö Mingyur Dorje, this short form of the Changchog ritual can be easily performed by anyone who has received its transmission and wishes to help his or her deceased father, mother, friends or relatives.
