Practice and Study of the Kagyu Mahamudra

Talk 3 - Mahamudra Series Year 2 - Mahamudra Vipashyana

This talk begins the study of Khenpo Tsultim Gyamtso Rinpoche's 1993 exposition of Mahamudra Vipashyana.

"The quintessence of the … countless teaching of the buddhas is that the wisdom essence … is present as the nature of sentient beings. Among all the different kinds of teaching is one that is the most eminent, the shortest path, the ultimate meaning… Mahamudra is the supreme method that directly and easily reveals the natural face of the mind in which the three kayas are spontaneously present."
Lamp of Mahamudra, Tselae Natsok Rangdrol
