These sacred texts provide not only a detailed explanation of the practice of severance, but also contextualize it within the broader framework of the Buddhadharma as a whole. This volume is indispensable reading for everyone who is dedicated to understanding severance and putting this powerful teaching into practice. Composed by one of Heruka Dudjom Lingpa's disciples, Pema Lungtok Gyatso, An Ambrosia Ocean of Sublime Explanations is a word-by-word commentary on the terton's own chöd revelation known as Heart Essence of Saraha. Both works are included in Dudjom Lingpa's Chöd.

"The exceptional commentary by Pema Lungtok Gyatso is an exquisite treatise that encompasses the teachings on Chöd entirely and fully illumines these unparalleled transmissions." ~ Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche

Heart Essence of Saraha: Root Commentary on the Troma Nagmo a severance liturgy revealed by Heruka Dudjom Lingpa covering thirteen sections of chöd practice transmitted to him from the Treasury Expanse of the Spacelike Dharmata by the crown jewel of Indian mahasiddhas, Saraha. This second edition is a complete retranslation of the Heart Essence chöd text and is included in the Dudjom Lingpa's Chöd book along with the commentary by Pema Lungtok Gyatso.

As Part Two in the book, this commentary includes both common and uncommon preliminary instructions, the three-kaya meditation-recitation practice, the pointing-out instructions for identifying the view associated with the four samayas of Mahasandhi, the stages of generation and completion, the way of wandering through fear-invoking environments, the methods for identifying upheavals and for accumulating merit, such as the practice of the four feasts, and various other subjects that belong to the path of chod.

Light of Berotsana translated the root terma Heart Essence of Saraha some ten years ago, and since then the limited editions have sold out.
