Sadhana of Mahamudra
with Jesse Miller
December 13 / 7:00 PM - December 13 / 8:00 PM
Flash Update: Kunga Dawa, longtime student and personal assistant to Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche will be joining us tonight. Kunga was with Trungpa when this Sadhana was revealed.
The Sadhana of Mahamudra, which Trungpa Rinpoche "discovered" in Bhutan in 1968, is a particular kind of text or teaching called terma. In Tibet, Chögyam Trungpa had already been recognized as a tertön, a teacher who "finds" or reveals terma, which are the teachings that Padmasambhava concealed in physical locations throughout Tibet and in the realm of mind and space. As Trungpa Rinpoche describes in Crazy Wisdom, "He [Padmasambhava] had various writings of his put in gold and silver containers like capsules and buried in certain appropriate places in the different parts of Tibet so that people of the future would rediscover them....This process of rediscovering the treasures has been happening all along, and a lot of sacred teachings have been revealed. One example is the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Another approach to preserving treasures of wisdom is the style of the thought lineage. Teachings have been rediscovered by certain appropriate teachers who have had memories of them and written them down from memory. This is another kind of hidden treasure". The Sadhana of Mahamudra is such a mind terma.
