Oral Instructions of Mahamudra
Saturday, January 13, 2018
with Gen Kelsang Ingchug
In this special presentation we can clearly see how enlightenment is possible. Enlightenment is not an abstract concept but simply the fulfillment of our inner potential. We all have Buddha nature and by following the oral instructions of Mahamudra we can create the inner environment for our potential to ripen.
Mahamudra is a sanskrit word that means the union of bliss and emptiness, this is the experience of an enlightened mind. When our own very subtle mind realizes the true nature of reality, we experience the actual Mahamudra realization. The Path of Mahamudra realizations is broken down into steps that are attainable and accessible to modern practitioners. Understanding this presentation gives us confidence in our own potential and in the power of this unbroken lineage of realization. It feels that each generation of Kadampa spiritual guides has made the path more direct and easier to follow. It is clear that worldly paths are leading to disaster, so now is the time to follow the correct path that is appearing to us, there is nothing more meaningful we can do with our life.
