Gampopa Teaches Essence Mahamudra by Tony Duff

By Tony Duff

Th is e-book started as a translation of the "Interviews" part of Gampopa's Collected
Works. Interviews or query and resolution classes as they're actually called
in Tibetan are documents of the private interviews of a very good instructor with those
who come to determine him. Th ese are among the main attention-grabbing writings to be
found in Tibetan literature end result of the very own caliber present in them.
Th e interviews portion of Gampopa's amassed Works contains interviews with
four of his maximum yogin disciples-the fi rst Karmapa Dusum Khyenpa, resource of
most of the entire lesser Kagyu lineages Phagmo Drupa, Lord Gomtshul, and Yogin
Choyung.
Th e amazing characteristic of those interviews is the non-public teachings on Essence
Mahamudra, the final word transmission of Mahamudra in the Kagyu lineage.
In one consultation after one other, Gampopa unearths the entire teachings of Essence
Mahamudra to his best disciples in a completely own, pointed, and
practical demeanour. one other characteristic is that those interviews provide a truly transparent picture
of how final Mahamudra used to be taught within the early days of the Kagyu lineage.
Yet one other function of those interviews is that most of them are notes that
were taken prompt or written out simply after the interviews. As such, they are
historical documents which offer us a truly own feel of Gampopa and those great
disciples and what they went via on their own trips to enlightenment.
More than that even though, the reader will get a different influence of the personalities
involved via their very own, hand-written records.
Because the interviews are so focussed on Gampopa's presentation of Mahamudra,
two extra texts from his gathered Works have been further to offer a different feel of his
way of training it: fi rst, a quick textual content that is the basis of his recognized "Four Dharmas
of Gampopa" instructing, and moment, a medium-length textual content which documents an oral
teaching he gave at the whole direction of Mahamudra.
