Mindfulness to Mahamudra, Vancouver, BC

November 22, 2013 November 24, 2013 UTC-8

We are pleased to announce that Lama Mark Webber will be giving teachings and a mini-retreat on the topic of Mahamudra.

“Mahamudra has many equivalent names, such as,”Great Seal”, “Buddhanature”, “Totality” and “Great Symbol”—”the inseparability of awareness and emptiness”. It is the definitive penetrative insight into non-conceptual awareness of emptiness and compassion. We all have this awake nature, although it may be temporarily hidden within our mind-streams.

Mahamudra refers to both the result—the realization of Mind—but also the path and meditations to arrive at this realization. There will be teachings and practice sessions to help show the necessity of developing superb mindfulness (and what that means!) and profound relaxation of body-mind (and what that is!). In addition, the classic requisites of practice and understanding will be described to remove obstacles to recognition of the nature of Mind.” LM
