Aspirations for Mahamudra – the Path in a Prayer – Part I

Zoom

As one traverses this path, it is helpful to prepare the mind for receiving realization by reciting a traditional text called 'The Aspirations for Mahamudra' prayer. This prayer was written by the Third Gyalwa Karmapa, Rangjung Dorje. A commentary (explanation) about the prayer was written by the Eighth Tai Situpa, Chokyi Jungne. The prayer is both interesting and beautiful. In this class—the first in a multi-part series that we will spread over time, in a relaxed way—we'll learn the history of the prayer, why it is beneficial to recite it, how to recite it and the meaning of the first several stanzas.
