On May 11-13, 2007, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche once again offered an illuminating explanation of mahamudra at Karma Triyana Dharmachakra. His talks followed the familiar format of ground, path, and fruition that is both accessible for beginning students and a valuable overview for seasoned practitioners. Rinpoche's usage of metaphors, his story-telling, enacting of the points he makes, as well as his sense of humor create a setting in which students can learn effortlessly. His familiarity with western concepts rooted in cognitive science helps build a bridge between gaining insight into the nature of mind through meditation on the one hand and western understanding of mind function on the other. In addition, Rinpoche's first-hand experience with overcoming childhood panic attacks offers an unprecedented opportunity to learn a practical application of meditation from one of the greatest Tibetan meditation masters of modern times.

These teachings are restricted to those who attended or have finished the Mandala Offering part of the Ngondro.

Total time: approx. 7 hours.
