All lineages of Mahamudra meditation have their source in a verse teaching—a "song of realization"—sung by the Mahasiddha Tilopa to his disciple Naropa on the banks of the Ganges River more than a thousand years ago. Since that time, the meaning of Tilopa’s instructions has been passed directly from master to disciple in a continuous stream that exists unbroken to this day. This book offers the reader a rare glimpse into the Mahamudra oral transmission, given in a traditional Tibetan context by one of the lineage’s most learned and accomplished contemporary masters. Mahamudra meditation, while highly advanced, is yet simple, practical, and accessible for anyone, because what is identified and meditated upon is the very nature of one’s own mind. In Sangyes Nyenpa Rinpoche’s words, "The distinction between deception and liberation lies in whether we understand the ever-present nature of our own mind or not. Knowing our own face is liberation; not knowing our own face is samsara. This is not something far distant from us." The instructions are ideal for Westerners because the root text is manageable and Rinpoche has provided an outline of his own composition that makes it easily understandable. He explains terminology with frequent comparisons between Dzogchen and Mahamudra, quotes prolifically from scripture, gives clear examples, and generally cajoles, admonishes, and encourages his listeners to be true to their own spiritual path.

The book opens fresh ground in Buddhist studies and practical theology by applying phenomenological research methods to empirically discern transformative aspects of contemplative experience using reports elicited directly from contemporary practitioners. The work portrays the experiences of performing Kun-mkyen Pad-ma dKar-po's 16th c. ritual in a practice tradition attributed to the 12th c. female Indian teacher Siddharaj�i. Preliminary spiritual care and contemplative factor models are presented along with a detailed theoretical process analysis of positive spiritual development as a method of ~spiritual care through the contemplative action of the liturgy. Bhikshuni Lozang Trinlae is a fully ordained Buddhist monastic, contemplative, practical theologian, and chaplain. Founder of Mahaprajapati Vihar hermitage in Solukhumbu, Nepal, her scholarly work is in the areas of contemplative studies and hermeneutics of lived religion, and it explores the epistemological and transformative characteristics of religious experience.
