What is Mahamudra?
” Your primordial essence has no limitation and it is perfect….more than perfect ………everyone is sacred , everything is sacred, .(when you know this) , then all the problems and shortcomings that you have become a secondary thing”
Guru Vajra Dhara Tai Situ Pa Rinpoche Mahamudra Transmission
To realize this is everyone’s destination and until we do nothing will satisfy us , we will keep searching for the elusive peace, happiness and satisfaction that we so desire.
Everything is Mahamudra practice . However there are meditation practices both shinay (calm abiding) and lhathong (insight ) when practiced methodically over many years, under the direction of a living Buddha like our Guru VajradharaTai Situ Pa Rinpoche, can lead to that recognition of Nature of Mind – the beginning of our Enlightenment.
Like building a house, Mahamudra requires a solid foundation. Without the foundation our house will collapse.
Mahamudra foundations (Ngondro) consist of
4 deep contemplations – Precious Human Life, Death and impermanence, Karma and the suffering of cyclic existence (Samsara) These are followed by
Refuge and Bodhicitta (prostrations), Dorje Sempa – purification practice, Mandala , accumulation of merit and Guru Yoga the practice of devotion.
On one Sunday every month we will practice together the 4 contemplations and Prostrations (refuge Bodhicitta)
Everyone is welcome but please contact me first 0863027512 as you may need instruction before starting the practice.
