Description Contents
 
Here is the first complete life story of Gampopa, the foremost disciple of Milarepa and one of the forefathers of the Kagyu lineages. Compiled from numerous Tibetan biographies, this comprehensive and inspiring rendition highlights the extraordinary details of Gampopa's meditative experiences, and presents direct insights into the practice and realization of Mahamudra. Drawings by the Dutch artist Eva van Dam illustrate this compelling and moving tale.
A history of the Kagyu order by Lobsang P. Lhalungpa supplements the story of Gampopa's life, illustrating his importance in the development of the Kagyu lineages of Tibetan Buddhism.
Jampa Mackenzie Stewart's essay on "Mahamudra: Gampopa's System of Meditation" and an extensive glossary help open the doors of Vajrayana Buddhism to beginners, offering fresh insights for advanced practitioners as well.
