Mahamudra for the Modern World, a dharma talk by Vajrayana teacher Reggie Ray, introduces the Mahamudra (“The Great Awakening”) tradition. According to the Mahamudra tradition, every human life is sacred and unique, and an expression of the glory of the universe. Its teachings lead one into direct and unmediated contact with reality itself. Once taught only to elite students in secluded monasteries, the Mahamudra practices show us how every state of mind and every circumstance can shatter our illusions and lay bare the natural state of awakening within. In this talk, Ray explains these ancient teachings for the modern-day practitioner. All week, he will be available to answer questions, so post a comment below and he will get back to you.
