“Kangling — a horn made out of a human thigh-bone for use in Tibetan Buddhism rituals, such as Chod. The otherworldly sound of the instrument celebrates generosity and connection to other people and creatures in a world where life and death are intertwined.”
Kangling should only be used in chöd rituals performed outdoors with the chöd damaru and bell.
In Tantric chöd practice, the practitioner, motivated by compassion, plays the kangling as a gesture of fearlessness, to summon hungry spirits and demons so that she or he may satisfy their hunger and thereby relieve their sufferings. It is also played as a way of “cutting off of the ego.”
