Milarepa’s Kungfu: Mahamudra with Mitra Dean Karl Brunnhölzl

Online Series of Mitra Dean Karl Brunnhölzl.

In this series of talks, we will explore the teachings on Mahāmudrā by the Tibetan master of yogīs, Milarepa, primarily based on his song called Ultimate View, Meditation, Conduct, and Fruition, which is his culminating instruction to Rechungpa, his main disciple besides Gampopa.

Milarepa sang this song with a teaching template that is common to a lot of his songs. It consists of view as the basis or ground, meditation as the training in or the familiarization with that view, conduct as the natural outflow of having familiarized with the view in meditation, and fruition as the final outcome of having fully assimilated and realized the view.

In addition, we will look at a number of other songs of Milarepa that supplement the instructions in Ultimate View, Meditation, Conduct, and Fruition.

Celebrating Chökhor Düchen 2022

How to teach about enlightenment to others? According to tradition, for the first seven weeks after his enlightenment, Buddha did not teach. Then, encouraged by Indra and Brahma, he gave his first teaching on the Four Noble Truths at the Deer Park in Sarnath. Buddha taught the truth of suffering, the truth of the origin of suffering, the truth of the cessation of suffering, and the truth of the path of liberation.

Please join Nalandabodhi Vancouver and Lama Rabten Tshering for a celebration of these First Turning Teachings, which laid the ground for the entire Buddhist teachings and path.
