Welcome to MMC's Online
Mahamudra Meditation Manual
To use this meditation manual, we recommend the following:
It may be helpful to read one or both of the two appendices (Appendix A - Intro. to Buddhism and
Appendix B - Mahamudra Perspectives) first since they provide a contextual perspective. Also, traditionally, we cover the first "five series" over a period of 9-10 months, going through practices one week at a time. These are practices which are to be explored and not just read, so please proceed leisurely.

- That one approaches the practices with a sense of caring and respect.
- That one accepts self-responsibility for one's journey on the path and does not give this up to any "outside stander" including one's teacher.
- That one questions all material in here "as carefully as buying gold on the bazaar" even though this text has obtained the approvals and blessings of a traditional lineage master.
- That one first consult one of Thrangu Rinpoche's many texts on Mahamudra and/or attends a retreat on Mahamudra given by him or one of MMC's certified teachers.
