Mahamudra Meditation Manual
( Please see Additional Resources for a PDF of the manual below. )
To use this meditation manual, we recommend the following:
It may be helpful to read one or both of the two appendices (Appendix A - Intro. to Buddhism and
Appendix B - Mahamudra Perspectives) first since they provide a contextual perspective. Also, traditionally, we cover the first "five series" over a period of 9-10 months, going through practices one week at a time. These are practices which are to be explored and not just read, so please proceed leisurely.
Click here or on Table of Contents to proceed to a detailed listing of the contents of the manual.
- That one approaches the practices with a sense of caring and respect.
- That one accepts self-responsibility for one's journey on the path and does not give this up to any "outside stander" including one's teacher.
- That one questions all material in here "as carefully as buying gold on the bazaar" even though this text has obtained the approvals and blessings of a traditional lineage master.
- That one first consult one of Thrangu Rinpoche's many texts on Mahamudra and/or attends a retreat on Mahamudra given by him or one of MMC's certified teachers.
Please contact us if there are any questions or if you wish to provide comments. Due to the small size and very limited resources of our Center, we may not be able to respond to enquiries.
