This first course in a series is about introducing mahamudra and learning its basic practices, the preparatory exercises. Refuge, bodhicitta and karma as well as the meaning of devotion are the theme of this course. Trinlay Rinpoche also discusses the importance of recognizing the true nature of the mind.
The basis is the Nöndro text “The unity of merit and wisdom”, compiled by Shamar Rinpoche.
Trinlay Rinpoche, born in 1975 in Switzerland as the son of American-French parents, was recognized early by the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa as a rebirth of an important Buddhist teacher. Since then he has undergone traditional training for Tulkus as well as studying at Western universities. He is considered the first western rebirth of a lama of the Karma Kagyu school and teaches in Asia, Europe and America.
