Pointing out the Dharmakaya
Teachings on the Ninth Karmapa's Text
by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

The Ninth Karmapa’s Pointing out the Dharmakaya – by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

At the heart of successful Mahamudra practice is the ability to get directly at the nature of mind. The Ninth Karmapa, Wahgchuk Dorje (1556-1603), was the acknowledged master of this approach. No more authoritative or useful instructions exist than in his three definitive texts on Mahamudra, of which this easy-to-use, practical manual is the shortest. Pointing Out the Dharmakaya is an invaluable guide for Mahamudra practitioners on how to look at the mind. It is clearly laid out so that the instructions are easy to recall and put into use.

Pointing Out the Dharmakaya is a remarkably extensive and detailed approach to looking at the mind. It represents the teachings on insight meditation as presented in the tradition of Mahamudra, the essence of all the Buddha’s teachings. Together with the teachings of Dzogchen they comprise what is known as the path of liberation. Students will find in this extraordinary set of instructions systematic and comprehensive approaches to ascertaining the mind’s ture nature, to checking one’s experience, and to refining and extending one’s insight.” – Lama Tashi Namgyal

The Ninth Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje (1555-1603), a realized lineage holder of the Mahamudra tradition, was an outstanding teacher and scholar who composed the main texts containing the preliminary practices and instructions of Mahamudra.

Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche is a leading contemporary scholar of the Kagyu lineage and a recognized master of Mahamudra meditation known for making complex teachings accessible to Western students.

This book contains Thrangu Rinpoche’s commentary on the Karmapa’s text, not the Karmapa’s text itself.
