Description About the author
"Roger Jackson's Mind Seeing Mind is the first attempt to provide both a scholarly study of the history, texts, and doctrines of Geluk mahamudra and translations of some of its seminal texts. It begins with a survey of the Indian sources of the teaching and goes on the discuss the place of mahamudra in non-Geluk Tibetan Buddhist schools, especially the Kagyču. The book then turns to a detailed survey of the history and major textual sources of Geluk mahamudra, from Tsongkhapa, through the First Panchen, down to the present. The final section of the study addresses critical questions, including the relation between Geluk and Kagyu mahamudra, the ways Gelukpa authors have interpreted the mahasiddha Saraha, and the broader religious-studies implications raised by Tibetan debates about mahamudra. The translation portion of Mind Seeing Mind includes eleven texts on mahamudra history, ritual, and practice. Foremost among these is the First Panchen Lama's autocommentary on his root verses of Geluk Mahamudra, the foundation of the tradition. Also included is his ritual masterpiece Offering to the Guru, which is a staple of Geluk practice, and a selection of his songs of spiritual experience. Mind Seeing Mind adds considerably to our understanding of Geluk spirituality and shows how mahamudra came to be woven throughout the fabric of the tradition"--
