Our current Gompa Wisdom Teaching is a rare opportunity to receive a comprehensive three-day teaching from H. H. the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Thinley Lhundup on the revered text Introduction to Mahamudra: The Co-emergent Unification composed by Drikung Kyopa Jigten Sumgon (1143–1217) the founder of the Drikung Kagyu lineage. This special teaching, recorded at Drikung Kagyu Jangchubling Monastery, at Dehradun, India, includes a detailed commentary on the four preliminary practices, the ‘pointing out’ introductions, both with regard to recognizing the nature of mind itself and the nature of appearances, and related oral transmissions. The meditative approach known as ‘Mahamudra’, which is especially highly regarded within both the Kagyu and Geluk lineage traditions, comprises a sequence of systematic advanced meditations on emptiness and pure appearance.  The practice of Mahamudra applies both ‘calm abiding’ (zhi nas / shamatha) and ‘higher insight’ (lhag mthong / vipasyana) directly to the nature of the meditator’s own mind. The teaching is given in Tibetan with English translation.
