Description Contents

Mahamudra is the principle meditation of the Kagyu Lineage. This is a meditation of practitioners, not scholars or logicians. Briefly, it involves looking directly into the mind to understand the true nature of reality.

Mahamudra meditation is particularly appropriate for modern students because this meditation does not require taking monastic ordination or doing extensive retreats. This form of meditation has come down to us from the mahasiddhas of India who were carpenters, university professors, kings, fishermen, and common laborers. They practiced this meditation while having families and engaging in their daily work and were able to reach enlightenment with this meditation.

Thrangu Rinpoche used Tashi Namgyal's The Moonlight of Mahamudra as a guide for this teaching. The choice of this book was actually that of His Holiness, the Sixteenth Karmapa. Thrangu Rinpoche gave five sets of teachings on this vast text to help clarify it for his students at five yearly Mahamudra Retreats at Big Bear in California.

For the first time all five teachings have been condensed into one book with a complete glossary, notes, bibliography, and index. Any student wanting to understand these profound teachings will find that they are described in detail and that Thrangu Rinpoche's commentary is extraordinarily clear.
