Cover of a new book by H.E. Zasep Rinpoche: Gelug Mahamudra.

A must-not-miss Mahamudra meditation weekend retreat: “Liberating the mind” covering both Sutra and Tantra Methods (Tummo).

Rinpoche will lead a weekend retreat at Gaden Choling (Toronto, Canada) on the sublime meditation practice of Mahamudra or “Great Seal” – the art of using the mind to meditate on it’s own empty nature. These teachings will follow the precious Gelug tradition in a  format complimenting the content of Rinpoche’s new book on Mahamudra.

NOTE: This retreat will cover meditation on Sutra and Tantra both, including stages of Tummo practice (advanced Tantric practice).

What is Mahamudra meditation and why do we need it?

“…Mahamudra is at the very heart of Buddha’s teachings. Mahamudra practice slows us down so we can see things as they are. Mahamudra reveals the ultimate nature of the mind, intrinsically pure and empty of inherent nature: pure awareness, luminous and spacious — clarity and cognisance.” Excerpt from Gelug Mahamudra by H.E. Zasep Rinpoche.

Here is a video of H.E. Zasep Rinpoche teaching on one small area of Mahamudra: Vipashyana Mahamudra meditions. Please enjoy, and may all beings benefit:
