Author: Thrangu Rinpoche, Khenchen and Karmapa [Ninth]
A commentary by Thrangu Rinpoche on this succinct text on Mahamudra by the Ninth Karmapa, Wangchung Dorje. At the heart of successful Mahamudra practice is the ability to get directly at the nature of mind. No more authoritative or useful instructions exist than in the Ninth Karmapa's three definitive texts on Mahamudra, of which this easy-to-use practical manual is the shortest. Pointing Out the Dharmakaya is thus an indispensable companion to the Ocean of Definitive Meaning, the most vast and detailed of the texts.
"Pointing Out the Dharmakaya is a remarkably extensive and detailed approach to looking at the mind. It represents the teachings on insight meditation as presented in the tradition of mahamudra, the essence of all the Buddha's teachings. Together with the teachings of Dzogchen they comprise what is known as the path of liberation. Students will find in this extraordinary set of instructions systematic and comprehensive approaches to ascertaining the mind's true nature, to checking one's experience, and to refining and extending one's insight." Lama Tashi Namgyal.
"Readers who are interested in discovering the nature of mind will find much here in this clear and thorough guide to delight and inspire them." The Dalai Lama.
