He is one of the most revered teachers of Kalachakra Tantra and is a lineage holder of Chöd teachings according to the Gelugpa Lineage.

Introduction to Chöd and a History of the Lineage
Chöd refers to cutting through the grasping at a self and its attendant emotional afflictions. It aims to free the mind from all fear and to arouse realization of its true nature, primordially clear bliss and emptiness.
