Publisher Description

The concluding volume of a Tibetan meditation classic for realizing our buddha nature.

This second and final volume of a treasured meditation manual outlines the major teachings and practices of the Tibetan Mahamudra tradition. This esoteric tradition focuses on the realization of our minds as naturally pristine and clear as a direct means to true awakening. While part one focuses on the basic practices of calm abiding (shamatha) and insight (vipashyana), the second volume explains how Mahamudra is pointed out and cultivated, how to overcome obstacles to meditation, and how buddhahood is ultimately attained. Refreshingly readable and concise, this volume is a source of inspiration for practitioners and anyone wishing to learn about the tradition of Mahamudra.

Author Biography

THE THIRD KAMTRUL RINPOCHE (1680-1729), a great Tibetan visionary, meditation master, civic leader, and polymath, was widely recognized for his teachings and writings on Mahamudra systems of meditation.?GERARDO ABBOUD lived in India and Nepal and studied Tibetan language for fourteen years. Since 1986, Gerardo has been president of the Dongyuling Center, Argentina, which offers free teachings on Buddhist theory and practice. He is the English interpreter for several Tibetan Buddhist masters and since 1992 has served as the Dalai Lama's interpreter in Latin America.


"This mahamudra text is very clear and extremely detailed. It is very rare to find a teaching such as this one that is a complete presentation of mahamudra that includes the three sources of transmission on this topic: teachings of Lord Buddha, commentaries of his most learned followers and, especially, experiential pith instructions by highly realized masters. I read it when I was young and found it to be of great help in my own practice, so it is my hope that it may also bring benefit to all those who practice mahamudra."--Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, author of Turning Confusion into Clarity

"In mahamudra meditation, chaos and emotional upheaval are not rejected but instead used as the fuel for the journey of discovering the truth, transforming confusion into sanity and wisdom. I believe this is the reason why more and more people are waking up to the need and are seeking out mahamudra practice. This book is an extraordinary blessing and indispensable for anyone who has an earnest, fervent wish and intention to pursue this path. May it serve as a source of inspiration and practical guide to help cut through the veil of illusion, and allow us to discover the luminous, radiant, and joyful heart within each of us. With proper guidance, faith, and devotion, spiritual awakening shall swiftly arise in the fortunate ones!"--Drukpa Choegon Rinpoche, spiritual head of Dechen Choekhor Monastery

"A practical handbook for the deepest insights a human being can gain, written by a master meditator in clear and simple language."--Erik Pema Kunzang, translator of Jewels of Enlightenment
