The Kagyü school of Tibetan Buddhism began in the eleventh century with such renowned figures as Marpa and Milarepa, and its seminal meditative traditions are Maha-mudra- and the six Dharmas of Na-ropa. Maha-mudra- teachings focus on the cultivation of profound insight into the nature of the mind. The Maha-mudra- texts in this volume include a lucid work by the celebrated master Tselé Natsok Rangdröl and works by the twelfth-century master Shang Rinpoche, the great Third Karmapa, the Eighth Tai Situ, and Drukpa Pema Karpo. The volume also contains an inspirational work by Gampopa, the Drigung Kagyü root text, The Single Viewpoint, the Sixth Shamarpa’s guide to the six Dharmas of Na-ropa-, and finally an overview of tantric practice by Dakpo Tashi Namgyal, author of the famous Moonlight of Maha-mudra-. The texts in this volume were selected by the preeminent scholar of the Kagyü school, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche.

The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
