The Union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen – Accessing the Natural State of the Mind

Module 2

Course number

The Tibetan master, Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche the 9th (1955–2012), gave many extensive teachings on mahamudra and dzogchen meditation. Mahamudra and dzogchen are perhaps the most profound teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. They represent two meditation paths that enable mediators to directly taste the reality of the mind, the fully enlightened state of reality. Many scriptures as well as meditation masters like Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche reflected on the union of these two paths of practice.

Traleg Khandro will continue this year with the course of the same name that began in November of last year. She will comment on and give an in-depth explanation of the clear and unambiguous teachings of Traleg Kyabgon on resting in the natural and non-dual state of the mind. Traleg Khandro was the wife and long-time student of Traleg Kyabgon. In order to rest the mind in its natural state, we first need to look at our experiences in a more subtly differentiated way. What is natural and what do we artificially produce? What is real and what do we merely think is real? These and other questions, and the meditation practices associated with them, gradually bring us closer to the true nature of our minds.

In addition to providing us with a basic introduction to these teachings, Traleg Khandro will also introduce us to meditation practices that are practised both in Mahamudra and Dzogchen.
