Thrangu Rinpoche's Latest book now on sale and with free postage.

One of the most beloved and often recited prayers in the Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The Mahamudra Lineage Prayer, also called the Dorje Chang Prayer combines a supplication to the Mahamudra lineage with a concise guide to Mahamudra practice and the stages of the path to enlightenment.

In this commentary, Thrangu Rinpoche teaches in his down-to-earth, yet direct manner, the importance of the Mahamudra lineage, how to develop renunciation and devotion through the common and uncommon preliminary practices and how to practice Shamatha and Vipashyana meditation in the Mahamudra tradition. He then explain that Mahamudra is easy to practice, yet it is also very powerful and especially suited for Western Dharma students.

"The Mahamudra Lineage Prayer was composed by Pengar Jampal Zangpo, one of the two tutors of the Seventh Karmapa... In the opening verse, he pays homage to the Mahamudra lineage,
including all the branches of the Dagpo Kagyu. In the verse that follow, he introduces both the preliminary practice and the main point of the Mahamudra practice, using vivid pith instructions, for example, 'Detachment is the foot of meditation' and 'Devotion is the head of meditation...'"
-- The Seventeenth Karmapa
