Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
An explanation of the Indian Mahasiddha Tilopa's renowned Gangama Mahamudra meditation instructions, given in a traditional Tibetan context by one of its lineage's most accomplished contemporary masters. These ancient instructions, in the form of a "song of realization," are the original source for all Mahamudra lineages of meditation.
All lineages of Mahamudra meditation have their source in a verse teaching--a "song of realization"--sung by the Mahasiddha Tilopa to his disciple Naropa on the banks of the Ganges River more than a thousand years ago. Since that time the meaning of the instructions has been passed directly from master to disciple in a continuous transmission lineage that exists unbroken to this day. Mahamudra meditation, while highly advanced, is yet simple and practical because what is identified and meditated upon is the very essence of one's own mind. This book offers the reader a window into the oral transmission of these instructions, given in a traditional Tibetan context by one of the Kagyu lineage's most learned and accomplished contemporary masters.

What a fortunate time we live in that new translations of ancient teachings are coming to publication all time. This is one of those books that should go to the top of the list of Mahamudra texts that you read, no matter what tradition if you are a serious spiritual practitioner. Even better if you are familiar with Buddhism in general, Mahamudra in particular.
Of course there is another view on this, and that is that at least some of the text should be restricted. The counter to that is that it will be self-restrictive, not understood by someone not ready for the read. The beauty of the poetic translation is reward enough to counter that view. Your understanding will grow with each reading. Savor it, study the commentary, and then come back to it later, and do this over and over again. It's almost certain you'll be well rewarded for your efforts.
If there's any doubt left about reading this book, perhaps David Molk, the translator of this text said it best:
"If you sense that there is something important to discover about life, perhaps a feeling of bliss or connectedness you've had glimpses of before; if you are concerned that time is limited and you see your life passing before your eyes; if you are tired of feeling that you are wasting your time, running a race that seems to be going nowhere; if you would like to turn away from inconsequential things to develop ultimate qualities of immeasurable love and inner peace that are everlasting ......" then you've found your reason.
