Khenchen Thrangu provides an exhaustive commentary on the longest and most comprehensive of the three classic treatises on Mahamudra composed by the sixteenth-century scholar Wangchuk Dorje, the Ninth Karmapa.
Thrangu Rinpoche's teachings encompass the entire path of Mahamudra, including the preliminaries, the main practice, removing obstacles, and attaining the result of Buddhahood—with detailed instruction in tranquility and insight meditation. This is the only available volume that presents Khenchen Thrangu's detailed commentary on this entire text. This book is on the same topic as the Thrangu Rinpoche's The Ninth Karmapa's Ocean of Definitive Meaning but at a different teaching also available from Namo Buddha Publications.
"Through the compassion of this beloved Buddhist master, these previously secret meditation teachings are now accessible to us all. By whole-heartedly following these step-by-step instructions, we can experience the inexpressible wisdom and goodness of our own mind. What could be more precious than that!" -- Pema Chodron
