August 30th

Date details +

    The Sadhana of Mahamudra was written down by the Vidyadhara at the Taktsang Retreat Center in Bhutan, the site of the cave where Padmasambhava meditated and manifested as Dorje Trolo, his crazy wisdom-form. It is based on two main principles- the ati principle of space and the mahamudra principle of energy. It was written as a source of inspiration as well as a potential way of continuing the journey. Inspiration [here] means awakening yourself from the deepest of deepest confusion and chaos and self-punishment; it means being able to get into a higher level and being able to celebrate within that. [The sadhana] speaks of how the phenomenal world in all its simplicity and mundane quality represents the very highest, the most profound truths. - Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
