Original Teachings on the Sadhana of Mahamudra

On the occasion of this super blue moon, The Chogyam Trungpa Digital Library is thrilled to announce the release of a pair of seminars on Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s powerful and poetic text, the Sadhana of Mahamudra.

Previously published in the book Devotion and Crazy Wisdom, these 1975 recordings from the seminars Embodiment of All the Siddhas and Sadhana of Mahamudra (with video) describe not just the symbolism and practice of the sadhana, but a complete tantric view, for a general audience.

Barry Boyce, who wrote the introduction to the book, presents these recordings with a new, illuminating article, “Breaking Through in the Cave at Taktsang: The Birth of the Sadhana of Mahamudra”:

“These talks are not mere historical artifacts. Just as the Sadhana of Mahamudra itself jumps to life straight off the page, emerging in nowness, so too these talks jump straight off the screen and from Trungpa Rinpoche’s heart into your own.”

We are pleased to be able to offer this set of recordings (including a previously unpublished community talk on the Sadhana), in anticipation of the October visit of Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche to Naropa University, where he will offer the Sadhana of Mahamudra abhisheka.
