From the Inside Flap
The most in-depth and famed text on Mahamudra ever written, The Ocean of Definitive Meaning by the 9th Karmapa offers a detailed, uniquely comprehensive presentation. Thrangu Rinpoche has distilled the essence of the 9th Karmapa's massive text and gives guidance in implementing the instructions.
The availability of the translation of this text has traditionally been restricted to advanced students only. However Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche has consented to the publication of these core teachings. He believes Mahamudra is especially appropriate for Westerners because it can be realized in the context of virtually any lifestyle, revealing the radiant display of mind. Compelling, systematic approach to some of the highest teachings in the Kagyu tradition.
"The single most useful Mahamudra text you'll ever read. Thrangu Rinpoche has distilled the most comprehensive of Wangchuk Dorje's three works to present a systematic, wonderfully accessible guide to this especially timely practice."--Ziji --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
