Machik’s Complete Explanation: Clarifying the Meaning of Chöd – Translated and Edited by Sarah Harding

Fear, anger, and negativity are states that each of us have to contend with. Machik’s Complete Explanation, the most famous book of the teachings of Machik Labdron, the great female saint and yogini of 11th-12th century Tibet, addresses these issues in a practical, direct way. This valuable text is now finally translated in its entirety into English.

Machik developed a system, the Mahamudra Chod, that takes the Buddha’s teachings as a basis and applies them to the immediate experiences of negative mind states and malignant forces. Her unique feminine approach is to invoke and nurture the very “demons” that we fear and hate, transforming those reactive emotions into love. It is the tantric version of developing compassion and fearlessness, a radical method of cutting through ego-fixation.

Sarah Harding has been a Tibetan Buddhist translator and practitioner since 1974 and her publications include Creation and Completion and The Life and Revelations of Pema Lingpa. She has served for ten years as a faculty member at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado.
