A uniquely insightful overview and practice guide to mahamudra meditation. The focus of these teachings is to point out to the practitioner the true nature of reality - which is beyond concept, limitation, and measure. Rinpoche gives a brief history of how the mahamudra view and techniques developed and shows how this particular school of thought fits in with other Tibetan Buddhist systems. He then goes on to present the basic principles of mahamudra, providing an exploration of mahamudra fundamentals and thorough explanations of ground, path, and fruition mahamudra, including meditation techniques for investigating, experiencing, and contemplating these teachings.
Traleg Kyabgon's approach is straightforward - he presents the mahamudra teachings as a means of seeing things in, as he says, "a positive and open light, even things we might normally regard as bad and undesirable can be interpreted in a more uplifting way due to the expansiveness of the mahamudra vision."
