The oral instructions of Mahamudra are an ancient series of meditations, motivated by compassion for others, that lead us to experience more subtle and peaceful states of mind. Practised by thousands of people over many generations, they guide us on a journey home, into our heart, where we can realize our very subtle mind, called the “clear light of bliss”. Just as the sun easily and effortlessly dispels darkness, the clear light of bliss has enormous power to dissolve away our deluded and negative ways of thinking.
Through the Mahamudra meditations on the central channel, indestructible drop and indestructible wind and mind we can manifest our clear light mind and quickly develop great power to heal ourselves and others in the world.
