Saraha (in the 8th Century living in India) who is credited with originating the teachings of Mahamudra with three famous Dohas. Saraha met a an arrow-maker and learned Mahamudra from he . He then left his position of head Bramin of the local King and began living with the arrow-maker. The King wanted Saraha to return to his courtly duties and to behave like a good bhrahmin. First the people came to Saraha and asked him to return to his post, but rejected the offer with a spiritual song now called the Citizen's or Peoples Doha. Then the queen came and asked Saraha to return and he rejected her offer with the Queen's doha. Finally the King asked Saraha to return and he rejected his offer with the King's Doha.
Each of these spiritual songs is entirely different in content but lays out the principles of Mahamudra. Thrangu Rinpoche has given a commentary on each of these Dohas showing how they relate to modern Mahamudra practice.
Rinpoche's teaching was translated by Erik Pema Kunsang.
