The Tibetan Buddhist teachings on mahamudra are known for their ability to lead to profound realization. Peaceful and infinitely adaptable, these teachings are as useful for today''s busy world as they have been for centuries. Essentials of Mahamudra is a commentary on Tashi Namgyal's famous Moonlight of Mahamudra a text that the sixteenth Karmapa had identified as being the most valuable for Westerner students.

"Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche [is] one of the foremost mahamudra teachers. 'It [mahamudra meditation] is peaceful and gentle,' he writes in Essential of Mahamudra. The book is based on Tashi Namgyal's Moonlight of Mahamudra, a sixteenth-century text that lays out the rationale behind the mahamudra practices, along with detailed instructions, including how to continue practicing off the cushion. ESSENTIALS contains answers to students' questions—helpful to practitioners at any level."-Tricycle

"Makes the practice of mahamudra, one of the most advanced forms of meditation, easily accessible to Westerners' everyday lives. A wonderful way of bringing us to the path."--Mandala : A Tibetan Buddhist Journal
