The concluding chapters of this treatise present a detailed analysis of Mahamudra meditation in relation to Dzogchen practice.
Although this book stands alone, it is the concluding section of a single body of oral teachings by Karma Chagme, the earlier section published under the title A Spacious Path to Freedom.
Karma Chagme (1613-1678) was a major lineage holder of the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and his writings have also become central to the Payul Nyingma lineage, making him ideally suited to integrate two of the great meditation systems of Tibet.
Gyatrul Rinpoche was born in 1925, recognized as a tulku of the great Payul contemplative Sampa Kunkyap, and educated in Payul Dhomang Manastery in Eastern Tibet. Since the early 1970's, Gyatrul Rinpoche has taught thousands of students in North America, where he has established several centers for the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism. Drawing on his extensive experience in traditional Tibet and the modern West, he brings these profound teachings to contemporary students of Tibetan Buddhis meditation.
B. Alan Wallace is a student of Gyatrul Rinpoche and a seasoned scholar and translator of Buddhist texts.
