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.

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:
1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.

Thank you for the notes.
