Rangjung Dorje - Third Karmapa

Jewel Garland of Chö (Tib. ཚོགས་ལས་རིན་ཆེན་ཕྲེང་བ་,tsok lé rinchen trengwa, Wyl. tshogs las rin chen phreng ba) — a collection of Chö texts compiled by Third Karmapa Rangjung Dorje. In order to keep Machik Labdrön's Chö tradition authentic and pure, the Third Karmapa compiled the various Chö practices and songs existing at that time into this collection. It was further edited by Karma Chakmé. It is the main practice of Chö for both the Kagyü and Nyingma tradition, and practitioners of other Chö practices that were later revealed as spiritual treasures, such as the Khandrö Gegyang from the Longchen Nyingtik cycle, use the Jewel Garland of Chö as an extensive feast ritual.
