Title: The Development of the Gcod Tradition
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Janet Gyatso

Description: The article outlines the origin and development of the Chöd (gcod) tradition. Chöd is a traditional meditative techinque used for cutting attachment to the ego. Not ready to dismiss the traditional positing of its source in Indian Buddhism, the article purports a wider understanding of the milieu contributing to the development of Chöd.
