Presiding over the sangha of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, the North American seat of His Holiness the seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche teaches on the Mahamudra Lineage Prayer. This supplication invokes the blessings of the Karma Kagyu Lineage and outlines the complete path of practice according to this tradition. It is recited by all practitioners at the beginning of meditation sessions.
In the first talk Rinpoche gives a brief biography of each of the seventeen Karmapas. In the following talks, on the basis of the Lineage Prayer he gives instructions on the common and uncommon preliminaries, tranquility and insight meditation, and Mahamudra.
Because of its great importance Thrangu Rinpoche has taught many times on the subject of the Mahamudra Lineage Prayer. He was initially requested to teach it by His Holiness the Sixteenth Karmapa because His Holiness felt it would help western students better understand the nature of the path.
Translation by David Karma Choephel. 4 talks on 1 MP3CD.
  • Mainly English Edition Because Thrangu Rinpoche often speaks for long periods of time in Tibetan when he teaches, his long monologues have been curtailed on CD and MP3 CD recordings (audio) to preserve the continuity of the teaching and make listening easier. Thus the voice heard for the majority of the time is that of the translator. DVD video recordings include all of Rinpoche’s Tibetan.
  • MP3CD Recordings MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have “MP3” or “MP3-WMA” clearly marked on the front of it.
  • The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
