Mahamudra is the principle meditation of the Kagyu Lineage of Tibet. Briefly, this meditation consists of looking directly at the mind and Mahamudra is very to Dzogchen meditation of the Nyingma lineage.

This booklet contains not only this famous spiritual song, but also includes a commentary by Thrangu Rinpoche, a practitioner of the Mahamudra lineage.

This booklet of 38 pages is priced especially for Dharma Centers.
