The Milarepa Lineage of Easy Enlightenment: The Five Pronged Mahamudra Training
Friday, March 17, 7:00 p.m. – Sunday, March 19, 3:30 p.m.
The lineage of the Panchen and Dalai Lamas of Tibet incorporated the transmission from Milarepa and Gampopa known as Chakchen De Nga, or “Five Features of the Mahamudra Training.” Here, Mahamudra is a Sanskrit term, with maha meaning “great” and mudra meaning “stamp” or “seal.” The sense of the statement is that the practitioner trains his or her mind in the act of stamping every moment of experience with the universal mystical qualities of bliss and emptiness. This is not an abstract tradition, but a precise method of resting awareness in these universal “wisdoms.” The weekend sessions alternate between instruction and guided meditations.
Lama Glenn Mullin trained in Tibetan Buddhism in the Himalayas for 15 years, and has published some 30 books on Tibetan Buddhism. He has taught Buddhist meditation for the past 30 years, often touring for six months of the year through North America, Asia, and Europe. He also leads pilgrimages through the sacred sites of Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan each year.
