Kathok Lineage

Lama Chimed has the complete Kathok lineage of practices with full authority to teach and transmit these precious lineages but he considers his main practice to be Tröma. His lineage for Tröma is very short and comes from Semo Dechen Yudron, Dechen-la, daughter of Dudjom Rinpoche, who many consider an emanation of Tröma. At Lama Ling in Tibet he received the complete Tröma cycle, including the profound teachings, from Dechen-la and her consort, Chonyd Rinpoche, and completed a retreat conducted by them.

Also, due to these degenerate times and pervasive illness, Lama Chimed feels a need to teach Medicine Buddha, Green Tara, Vajrasattva and Chenrezig. Medicine Buddha practice helps to purify illness and the negative karma associated with it; Green Tara encompasses the activities of all the Buddhas and her special quality is protection against the eight fears; Vajrasattva is the deity that Vajrayana Buddhism relies on to purify our past non-virtuous actions; and Chenrezig is considered the Buddha of Compassion. All Buddhas have love and compassion but Chenrezig is the foremost among them for his love and compassion as he is more connected to all the beings in the six realms.
