Some Notes on Mahamudra

Some Notes on Mahamudra

Postby Jinzang » Sun Jun 10, 2012 2:15 am

Lama Phurbu Tashi recently finished a class on mahamudra. I have put a selection from my notes on my blog.
Having obtained the supreme freedoms
and conjunctions of the precious human existence,
endowed with faith, energy, and intelligence,
Having attended on a worthy spiritual friend
and received the pith of the holy instructions,
May we practice these properly, just as we have received them,
without obstacle or interruption.
In all our lives, may we practice and enjoy the holy dharma.

Thanks for your notes. It's the first time I hear about Lama Phurbu Tashi but he is already sympathetic. I hope there will be more transcripts on their homepage in the future. :anjali:
"If the Buddha-Nature is seen, there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing."
(Nirvana Sutra, T12n374p521b3; tr Yamamoto)

"Neither cultivation nor seated meditation — this is the pure Chan of Tathagata."
(Mazu Daoyi, X1321p3b23; tr. Jinhua Jia)

“Don’t rashly seek the true Buddha;
True Buddha can’t be found.
Does marvelous nature and spirit
Need tempering or refinement?
Mind is this mind carefree;
This face, the face at birth."

(Nanyue Mingzan: Enjoying the Way, tr. Jeff Shore; T2076p461b24-26)

Thank you for the notes.
