According to the Tibetan tradition, our false sense of ego identity brings us into disharmony with the natural world and all sentient beings. The global challenges emerging during the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic can all be viewed as a karmic consequence of this disharmony. In a live Internet broadcast, teachers from various Tibetan traditions perform the Chöd practice, a meditation technique used to overcome fear and one’s attachment to the ego identity.

Accompanied by melody, drumbeat and chanting, the practitioner visualizes cutting up his or her own body and offering it as a sacred feast to all beings, giving them everything they need to be perfectly satisfied. On both an individual and collective level, performing this practice helps us to cut the root of ignorance and the ego, to open our hearts, and to exercise generosity.
