The KagyA¼ school of Tibetan Buddhism began in the eleventh century with such renowned figures as Marpa and Milarepa and continues today with the Karmapa and several bestselling authors including Pema Chodron, Mingyur Rinpoche and Chogyam Trungpa. Mahamudra, the qGreat Sealq, is a central teaching of the KagyA¼ school. Formulated as a systematic practice by Gampopa (1079a1153), the mahamudra teachings trace their source to earlier Indian materials and focus on the cultivation of profound insight into the nature of the mind. Mahamudra texts in this volume include a lucid work by the celebrated master TselAc Natsok RangdrApl (b. 1608) and works by the twelfth-century master Shang Rinpoche, the great Third Karmapa Rangjung DorjAc (1284a1339), the Eighth Situ ChApkyi JungnAc (1700a1774), and Drukpa Pema Karpo (1527a92). The volume also contains an inspriational work by Gampopa, the Drigung KagyA¼ root text One Viewpoint by Sherap Jungne (1187a1241), the Sixth Shamar ChApkyi Wangchuk's (1584a1630) guide to the six dharmas of Naropa, and finally an overview of tantric practice by Dakpo Tashi Namgyal (1512a87), author of the famous Moonlight of Mahamudra. The eleven texts in this volume were selected for inclusion in The Library of Tibetan Classics by the preeminent scholar of the KagyA¼ school, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche.Asksobhya, 3 57, 360-67., 442, 443, 509, 526, n1 33, n63 8 alaya, 33, 163, 165- 66, 171, 208, 283, 291-9; abode ofkarmic ...
