"The Sound of Dakini Laughter", a ritual of Chod (or "cutting through the Ego").
"External chod is to wander in fearful places where there are deities and demons. Internal chod is to offer one's own body as food to the deities and demons. Ultimate chod is to realize the true nature of the mind and cut through the fine strand of hair of subtle ignorance."
In Zhang Zhung language of ancient Bon writings "Ye" is "the highest" or "supreme", and "Mu" stands for "sky" or "space".
