Completion of Mahamudra transmissions


On 19th of September 2014, Guru Vajradhara Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa's transmission of detailed instructions on the Mahamudra Aspiration prayer and Four Foundations was completed. Guru Vajradhara bestowed these transmissions for almost a month, ending with instructions on the most sacred aspect of the four extraordinary foundations, Guru Yoga practice, which is mostly oriented towards the accumulation of wisdom.

From the 20th – 21st September 2014, Guru Vajradhara transmitted instructions on the four special foundations and main instructions for shamatha and vipassyana for two days together with meditation and profound dharma advice.

On the morning of the 22nd September 2014, the Sacred Guru Yoga of Marpa was conducted and in the afternoon every participant received the Bodhisattva vow and Vajrasattva empowerment from Guru Vajradhara. The transmission and teaching of the sacred Mahamudra was completed as requested with lots of blessing and dharma advice on how to continue daily practice for those who have received the sacred transmissions and teachings of Mahamudra up till now. Everyone participating in the teachings felt fully blessed and satisfied.

The principal disciple of this Sacred Mahamudra transmission and teaching, H. E. the 4th Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche Lodro Chokyi Nyima, and all other devotees' hearts were filled with Guru Vajradhara's teachings and transmission. It felt like children completed satisfied with their mother's loving care because the Mahamudra teaching was so clear and inspiring that everyone was fully motivated to practice them.

Guru Vajradhara has taught Buddhism all over the world. Among all the teachings Mahamudra is one of the practice oriented teachings for those who really want to practice Buddhism strictly according to the instructions of the lineage, and he has transmitted these teachings in the most kind way, like a father to his child.

The teachings and practice will not only benefit Buddhists, but are beneficial for the world over and all sentient beings. It has the potential to bring true peace and harmony to everyone.

All the participants are extremely grateful for receiving this sacred teaching of Mahamudra from Guru Vajradhara, and will always keep them in their hearts.
