Publisher's Summary

Relish these direct, experiential meditation instructions from the author of the bestselling Introduction to Tantra

Lama Yeshe tells us that mahamudra is “the universal reality of emptiness, of nonduality” and its unique characteristic is its emphasis on meditation: “With mahamudra meditation there is no doctrine, no theology, no philosophy, no God, no Buddha. Mahamudra is only experience.” 

He relies on the First Panchen Lama’s well-known Root Text of Genden Mahamudra, which in a few short pages provides the pith instructions for first overcoming distraction and resting in meditative stillness on the clarity of one’s own mind, and then, with subtle awareness, penetrating its ultimate nature, its emptiness. 

As always, Lama Yeshe’s words are direct, funny, and incredibly encouraging. He gets us to go beyond ego’s addiction to a limited sense of self and to taste the lightness and expansiveness of our own true nature.

Great book for Buddhist Practicioners-

Wonderful book on the practice of Mahamudra- Not a beginners book, but if you’re looking at this it’s likely you are aware of the importance of daily meditation and the preliminaries. While I do recommend this book and others by Lama Yeshe as he’s an exceptional teacher…I also recommend first working with a qualified teacher (lama/guru) and having a daily meditation practice before reading about and attempting this practice.
