Editorial Reviews

About the Author

The Third Khamtrul Rinpoche (1680–1729), a great Tibetan visionary, meditation master, artist, civic leader, and polymath whose collected works fill seventeen volumes, was widely recognized for his teachings and writings on mahamudra systems of meditation. He was responsible for the founding of Khampagar Monastery in eastern Tibet.

Gerardo Abboud was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After a short career in engineering, he spent fourteen years studying Buddhism in India and Nepal. Since 1986 he has been president of the Dongyuling Center, Argentina, which offers free teachings on Buddhist theory and practice. He has been the main translator for Drubwang Tsoknyi Rinpoche since 2000 and has been serving as His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s interpreter in Latin America since 1992. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

"This guidebook by the third Khamtrul Drodul Ngawang Kunga Tenzin clearly and extensively presents such topics as ground, path, and fruition; instructions on the four yogas of Mahamudra; and detailed descriptions of a yogin's meditative experiences. It is my hope that it may be of great benefit to those Westerners who wish to study and practice Mahamudra."—H.E. Dorzong Rinpoche

"Because it is one of the most detailed and comprehensive presentations of Mahamudra teachings in existence, many years ago I encouraged Gerardo Abboud to prepare an English translation of the third Khamtrul Rinpoche's instructional treatise on coemergent wisdom. I'm truly delighted to see that his efforts have now resulted in this exceptional work. All those devoted to the path that leads to recognizing the mind's profound nature will surely cherish The Royal Seal of Mahamudra."—H.E. Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche

"The distinguishing feature of this commentary on Mahamudra by Khamtrul Ngawang Kunga Tenzin is the way it accurately covers the different experiences of practitioners. People's minds are varied so their experiences can differ as well. The author advises what antidotes to apply, what adjustments to make, how to determine if an experience is valid or not, and gives instructions to prevent straying to a wrong path. The translator Gerardo Abboud is not only learned about Mahamudra but also has the experience of practice, both of which are special conditions for an adequate translation. It is my dearest hope that this text may be of great benefit and lead countless beings to the realization of buddhahood."—Drubwang Tsoknyi Rinpoche --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
