Synopsis

The Mahamudra path of direct perception is the pre-eminent method of the Dakpo Kagyu tradition. This definitive manual systematically explains its approach to meditation, complete with definitions, pointing-out instructions, and advice for the many pitfalls and errors that beset practitioners. Central to these errors is our failure to acknowledge the difference between understanding and experience, and our tendency to fixate on meditative experiences and mistake them for realisation. This translation conveys the freshness and immediacy of these instructions. Belonging to the generation of teachers to first bring Tibetan Buddhism across cultures, Traleg Kyabgon (1955-2012) presents these Mahamudra instructions in a direct, relaxed, and intimate style. His own sense of certainty and his confidence that Westerners are unspoilt enough to benefit from these direct teachings resonates on every page. Traleg Kyabgon's mastery of the English language and his insight into Western culture make for a very approachable translation of this magnum opus of the Kagyu tradition.

Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX was born in eastern Tibet in 1955. He was recognised by His Holiness XVI Karmapa as the ninth Traleg tulku and enthroned at the age of two as Supreme Abbot of Thrangu Monastery in Tibet. Traleg Kyabgon was taken to Rumtek Monastery in Sikkim at the age of four where he was educated with other young tulkus in exile by His Holiness Karmapa. Traleg Kyabgon moved to Australia in 1980 and commenced his studies in comparative religion and philosophy at La Trobe University. He established E-Vam Institute in Melbourne in 1982 where he gave weekly teachings on classic Kagyu and Nyingma texts. He established a Buddhist college and founded Dharma centres in Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche passed away in 2012. A traditional cremation ceremony was conducted at his retreat and conference centre, Maitripa Centre, Australia, and a stupa was erected on the centres grounds in his honour.
