The Mind of Mahamudra
Advice from the Kagyu Masters
Translated and introduced by Peter Alan Roberts




 
The Mind of Mahamudra introduces the conception of mahamudra in India, its transmission to Tibet, and the varying practices within the Kagyü School of Tibetan Buddhism. This volume includes important texts by the Third Karmapa such as “Prayer for the Definitive Meaning” and other texts by Shonu Lha, Lama Shang, Drukchen Pema Karpo, and Tsele Natsok Rangdrol.

Mahāmudrā is a simple, direct method for looking beyond our thoughts to the very nature of conscious experience. It is said mahāmudrā is not attained not because it is too difficult but because it is too easy, not because it is too far but because it is too close, and not because it is hidden but because it is too evident.

Mind of Mahāmudrā highlights this central meditation practice of the Kagyü school of Tibetan Buddhism through six texts ranging from the twelfth-century to the seventeenth and including such celebrated authors as Lama Shang and the Third Karmapa. Eminent scholar Peter Alan Roberts draws on his thirty-plus years of experience of translating for Tibetan lamas to illuminate these benchmark translations.

The texts featured in this volume have been drawn from the larger Mahamudra and Related Instructions.
