A Mahamudra Transmission by Kalu Rinpoche and Commentary by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche
Although our minds may appear to us as deluded and filled with turbulent thoughts, underneath the turbulence the mind is the trikaya, the three bodies of buddhahood, that are already present within our minds. The dharmakaya is our mind’s emptiness, the sambogakaya is our mind’s cognitive lucidity, and the nirmanakaya is our mind’s acute awareness that cuts through embellishment and delusion. These have always been there within each and every one of us, and that is what Mahamudra or Great Seal means.
– Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, from the Commentary
Single Sufficient Virtue was written by the previous Kyapje Kalu Rinpoche, Karma Rangjung Kunkhyab. It explains how our minds, whether active or still, are always the actual three bodies of buddhahood, and how recognition of this is the key to liberation. In this book, this brief text is clearly explained by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, the abbot of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, the North American seat of the Gyalwang Karmapa.
