Mahamudra: The Quintessence of Mind and Meditation

Lobsang P. Lhalungpa (Author) Takpo Tashi Namgyal (Author)
Synopsis Mahamudra is the first English translation of a major Tibetan Buddhist presentation of the theory and practice of meditation – a manual detailing the various stages and practices for training the advanced student. The original Tibetan text of nearly 800 pages was composed by Takpo Tashi Namgyal (1512-1587), a great lama and a scholar of the Kagyti sect of Tibetan Buddhism. His text is so vast and thorough in scope that it is still the primary source used by living Tibetan meditation masters in instructing their disciples. The many levels of meditation covered include the following: the differentiation between stages of tranquility and insight meditation; meditation on the two kinds of selflessness; preparation for mahamudra meditation; the various methods of mahamudra practice; methods for removing obstacles to meditation; how one achieves realization; and the four yogas of mahamudra. The first major text representing the meditational methods of both Mahayana and vajrayana Buddhism to appear in English, Mahamudra is an invaluable guide for advanced students, scholars, and Buddhist practitioners.
