Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche teaches on The Lamp of Mahamudra by Tsele Natsok Rangdrol. Tsele Natsok Rangdrol presents Mahamudra in 3 sections — Ground, Path, and Fruition. The Ground section explains the nature of all things and how our view of things deviates from that nature. Path teaches the path for realizing mahamudra by practicing tranquility and insight meditation while resting in the self-arisen nature. Fruition teaches full realization. Rinpoche’s talks provide commentary on Ground, Path and Fruition as presented in the text. Translated by Lama Yeshe Gyamtso. Eleven talks on six DVDs. These recordings have chapter points.
The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche presents the View of Mahamudra based on teachings by Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye in the Treasury of Knowledge, Rinpoche introduces Sutra, Tantra and Essence Mahamudra, and further explains Sutra and Essence Mahamudra from the perspective of ground, path and fruition. Rinpoche discusses the lineage of Mahamudra; the meaning and importance of devotion; the four causal conditions unique to the Essence Mahamudra practices; and how to meditate on Mahamudra, including eight points to meditate on in the Essence Mahamudra Path. This teaching is on the one hand thorough, detailed and academic. On the other hand, throughout these talks Rinpoche’s words arouse devotion and produce profound insight. Six talks on one MP3 CD.
