One of the most popular lineages of meditation and mantra for healing self and others is that known in Tibetan as “Tse-ta Zung-trel,” or “Healing by Amitayus and Hayagriva Combined.” The lineage originates in the Indo-Nepali female mystic Siddharani, and was brought to Tibet by Rechungpa. Master Rechungpa passed it to Milarepa, and from him it came down through the centuries. We will follow commentary of the First Dalai Lama, with reference to the sadhanas by the Second, Fifth and Seventh Dalai Lamas. Read more »
Mahamudra means “The Great Seal”, and refers to sealing or stamping each moment of experience with the stamp of pleasure and openness combined. “The Five Faces of Mahamudra,” or Chak-chen De-nga in Tibetan, refers to a special lineage of Mahamudra coming through Marpa and Milarepa to the early Drikung Kargyu masters, and from them to Lama Tsongkhapa and the Dalai Lama and Panchen Lamas. This workshop will experiment with some of the meditation techniques associated with this “ear whispered” lineage.
