Naked Awareness: Practical Instructions on the Union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen

en Limba Engleză Paperback – March 2000
In this classic seventeenth-century presentation of the union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen, Karma Chagmé, one of the great teachers of both these lineages of Tibetan Buddhism, begins with an overview of the spirit of awakening and the nature of actions and their ethical consequences. Next, drawing from his enormous erudition and profound experience, Chagmé gives exceptionally lucid instructions on the two phases of Dzogchen practice—the "breakthrough" and the "leap-over"—followed by an accessible introduction to the practice of the transference of consciousness at the time of death. The concluding chapters of this treatise present a detailed analysis of Mahamudra meditation in relation to Dzogchen practice. This tour de force of scholarly erudition and contemplative insight is made all the more accessible by the lively commentary of the contemporary Nyingma Lama Gyatrul Rinpoche.

Although this book stands alone, it is the concluding section of a single body of teachings by Karma Chagmé, the earlier section published under the title A Spacious Path to Freedom. Karma Chagmé was a major teacher of the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and his writings have also become central to the Payul Nyingma order, making him an ideal figure to integrate these two great meditation systems.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Mahamudra and Dzogchen are the two highest-level practices of Tibetan Buddhism. They are systems which strip away much of the cultural elaborations, which often are not amenable to Westerners and present the pith of Tibetan spirituality. Because of this, many Westerners are very interested in developing their practice in view of these systems. Naked Awareness serves to explain and relate Mahamudra and Dzogchen, which though direct, are sometimes very difficult to understand. Gyatrul Rinpoche is well-known in the West and is able in his commentary to address the Western practitioner.
