Feed your demons

Home / glossary / Feed your demons

‘Feed your demons’ is a reference to the Tibetan story of ‘Milarepa and the Demons’ in which he learned to dispel demons by providing for their needs, ultimately offering himself as food.  https://alearningaday.blog/2020/01/23/milarepa-and-the-demons/

The Buddist practice of Chod is an extension of this concept, and Lama Tsultrim Allione has created a modern version of the practice she calls feeding your demons. As she says, ‘It turns out to be a remarkably effective path to inner integration.’  https://www.lionsroar.com/how-to-practice-feeding-your-demons/

"Happiness does not come about only due to external circumstances; it mainly derives from inner attitudes." - Dalai Lama
