A) The Par-Druk (Bar-a’Brug) — Middle Drukpa Kagyud: Ling-Re- Pa (1248-1308) was a highly realized disciple of Phagmo Trupa who had many disciples and who constructed a monastery at Na (sNa)-Phur. His disciple Tsang-Pa Gya-Re (gTsang-Pa rGya-Ras) (1161-1211) became a famous teacher whose teachings were sometimes attended by as many as 50,000 people. After building the Long-Bol (Klong-rBol) and RaLung monasteries he went to a place called Nam (gNam)-Gyi Phu to build a monastery. When he and his party reached Nam-Gyi Phu they saw nine roaring dragons flying in the sky.

His two main disciples w ere Dag-Po Lha-Je (Dvags-Po LharJe) and Re-Chung-Pa (Ras-Chung-Pa). D agpo Lhaje (the doctor from D agpo valley and also known as G am popa) was born in 1079. His w ife died when he was in his twenties and he decided to renounce the world and b ecom e a monk. He received the teachings o f the Kadampa tradition and o f M ilarepa and these two traditions m erged within him. He obtained the suprem e realization and becam e a great scholar. He wrote many scholarly texts, the most fam ous being the Dag-Po'i Thar-Gyen (D vags-Po'i Thar-rGyan) in which the teachings o f the Kadampa tradition and those o f M ilarepa are com bined.

Both Chod teachings are based on the Prajnaparamita Sutras. The basic practice is to purify the defilements by completely cutting off grasping at self which is the root of samsara. The Six Paramitas (per­ fections) are practiced by giving away one’s own body and possessions to all including the most fearful beings in dangerous places without attachment, fear or doubt. Ma-Chig Lab-Kyi Dron-Ma divided the Chod into three aspects: ‘To travel to dangerous and solitary places is the Outer-Chod, ' To transform the body as food for demons is the Irmer-Chod, To cut o ff the single thing (grasping) from the root is the Actual-Chod.
