In session one, Rinpoche introduces Mahamudra, then speaks about the nature of the mind and its obstructions. He then gives detailed, and often humorous instructions on “resting the mind in the natural state.” After detailed instructions, he invites us to meditate. The teachings are continued in Session 2.

Teachings were at the end of 2018 at Gaden Choling in Toronto. Venerable Zasep Rinpoche is the spiritual director of several meditations centers in Canada, Australia, and the USA, and teaches around the world.
