Mitra Karl’s latest book, Sounds of Innate Freedom: The Indian Texts of Mahāmudrā: Volume 5 discusses historic texts and songs, many of which were translated for the first time into English. This Volume of classic mahāmudrā literature, published by Widsom, is from the large compendium called The Indian Texts of the Mahāmudrā of Definitive Meaning, compiled by the Seventh Karmapa, Chötra Gyatso.
According to the publisher, “The collection offers a brilliant window into the richness of the vast ocean of Indian Mahāmudrā texts cherished in all Tibetan lineages, particularly in the Kagyü tradition, giving us a clear view of the sources of one of the world’s great contemplative traditions.”

Why do we feel especially triggered by family relationships? How can we transform challenging moments with our family and use those triggers effectively on our path?
From my perspective, family life and relationship are among the most obvious and paradoxical of paths on which to practice the dharma. Nowhere are we more triggered nor more loving. In one moment, something our partner / child / parent does fills us with joy, and then suddenly, in the next moment, something they say hits us just the wrong way and we’re ready to live a life of solitude!
