Mahamudra Tantra: The Supreme Heart Jewel Nectar

Rate this book
Mahamudra is the union of great bliss and emptiness--the very subtle mind that experiences great bliss and realizes ultimate truth. By enabling us to go within to uncover the deepest level of our mind and then to use the very subtle mind to meditate on ultimate truth, Mahamudra practice destroys all our delusions at their very root and thus propels us quickly to the state of full enlightenment.

"Mahamudra Tantra" begins by explaining the basic correct view and intention needed for successful Mahamudra meditation, as well as the meaning of Tantra and the two stages of Highest Yoga Tantra practice, and then explains the preliminaries and stages of training in this profound practice.

This book leads you from the basic Buddhist philosophical exploration of the mind, further into Tantra beliefs about winds and channels connecting the mind to the body, and it ends with prayers and chants. So it’s well structured and clear, but I don’t believe any of the real Tantric stuff - the detailed anatomy of winds and channels, or the prayers to the god forms of Buddha’s emanations, which amount to deities and idol worship in my opinion.
