Judy Lief at Nalandabodhi NY








The War of Materialism and the Dawn of Realization:

Exploring Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s Sadhana of Mahamudra

“It is hoped that this sadhana will be practiced by those who are prepared to see the living dharma within. The sadhana will help to purify the present degenerate state of philosophy and meditation practice. It will help to bring peace in the warfare waged by materialism.” —Ven. Chögyam Trungpa

The Sadhana of Mahamudra joins and celebrates two threads of Tibetan Buddhist teaching: mahamudra and maha ati or dzokchen. It is the only sadhana, or Buddhist liturgy, that Trungpa Rinpoche opened to nonvajrayana students.  This text was written while Rinpoche was in a pivotal retreat in Bhutan, and it holds a special place in Trungpa Rinpoche’s transmission of the dharma in North America. The societal and individual challenges it lays out are as relevant today as when the sadhana was first received in 1968.

In this seminar we will be delve into key teachings of The Sadhana of Mahamudra.  It will be a chance to get a feeling for the history and overall structure of the sadhana practice as well as to work closely with particular points within it. The program will include meditation sessions, sadhana practice, and close reading exercises, as well as talks and discussions.
