Moonbeams of Mahamudra
With Dispelling the Darkness of Ignorance by Wangchuk Dorje, the Ninth Karmapa
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
This classic Buddhist work, written in the sixteenth century, comprehensively presents the entire scope of the Tibetan Kagyu Mahamudra tradition. These profound yet accessible instructions focus on becoming familiar with the nature of one's mind as the primary means to realize ultimate reality and thus attain buddhahood. Dakpo Tashi Namgyal's manual for the view and practice of Mahamudra is widely considered the single most important work on the subject, systematically introducing the view and associated meditation techniques in a progressive manner.
Moonbeams of Mahamudra, along with the Ninth Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje's Dispelling the Darkness of Ignorance, are to this day some of the most studied texts on Mahamudra in the Kagyu monasteries throughout Tibet and the Himalayas. Elizabeth M. Callahan, a renowned translator of classical Kagyu literature, has provided new translations of these two texts along with ancillary materials and annotations, making this a genuine resource for both scholars and students of Tibetan Buddhism. This historic contribution therefore offers the necessary tools to properly study and apply the Mahamudra teachings in a modern context.
