By the 12th Chamgon Tai Situ Rinpoche
As I was requested, I am going to give teachings on Mahamudra. Mahamudra, as a teaching, is presented in an enormous amount of texts, some of which might take a very long time: some as much as a year, with daily teaching sessions. Then, Mahamudra introducing the nature of mind might not even take one hour. So there is so much variety in the Mahamudra teachings. Therefore, I am not going to teach from just one particular Mahamudra text. This will be very much like an introduction for those who don't know anything about Mahamudra, or for those who know very little about Mahamudra. For those who know a lot about Mahamudra, it will be a reminder, because when you know a lot you might get a little bit mixed up. So this might sort out some of the over lapping and some of the confusion, or what is unclear about the Mahamudra teachings in general. So for that purpose, I am teaching Mahamudra here as an introduction or clarification or general teaching.
