Introduction Of Mahamudra Teachings From Gampopa

Gampopa, a physician from Dagpo region in Kham was the foremost student of the Tibetan Buddhist teacher Milarepa. Gampopa was renowned for the clarity of his perception and his knowledge of both Kadampa and, later, Mahamudra methods. Gampopa's position in the transmission lineage of the esoteric Mahamudra teaching is as follows:

  1. Tilopa (988-1069), the Indian yogi who experienced the original transmission of the Mahamudra
  2. Naropa (1016-1100), who perfected the methods of accelerated enlightenment, described in his six yogas of Naropa.
  3. Marpa (1012-1097), the first Tibetan in the lineage, who translated the Vajrayana and Mahamudra texts into Old Tibetan
  4. Milarepa (1052-1135), poet and master who overcame Marpa's reluctance to teach but nonetheless attained enlightenment in a single lifetime
  5. Gampopa, Milarepa's most important student, who integrated Atisha's Kadampa teaching and Tilopa's Mahamudra teaching to establish the Kagyu school [source: Wikipedia]

The teachings can be divided into 3 sections:

  1. To have a decisive understanding about TRUE NATURE i.e. EMPTINESS, NO CAUSE, NO CONDITION, NO METHODS, NO PATH, NO RESULT.
  2. Introduction to the Fundamental Character No cause yet with faith and devotion is the causes of Mahamudra No condition yet with genuine guru is the conditions of Mahamudra No methods yet with uncontrived mind is the method of Mahamudra No path yet with undistracted mind is the path of Mahamudra No result yet with the mind liberated into dharnata is the result of Mahamudra
  3. Following the Path with Preliminary Practices, meditate on Guru Yoga with Main Practice, Samatha will help the mind with distracted recognition.
