Course objectives:

  • Discuss the practice of Mahamudra, or "the great revelation," as a modern path of awakening to the boundless freedom that is our fundamental nature, and as it is is revered in Tibetan Buddhism as the most direct route to seeing the world in all its transcendent beauty, power, and perfection.
  • Practice the 12 points of the Mahamudra posture and the “Mahamudra entry protocol” – a series of guided practices that enable us to quickly enter into direct, non-conceptual experience.
  • Practice vipashyana meditations that take you on a progressive path of inquiry into the nature of awareness itself.
  • Practice many body-based shamatha meditations to still the mind and set the foundation for exploring the immeasurable expanse of being.
  • Summarize and experience innovative teachings on dismantling the klesas (difficult emotions) through heightening our experience of them.
  • Practice and receive the ground Mahamudra Transmission: A turning point on the path in which we are directly introduced to the awakened state.
  • Practice with guided instruction in three Mahamudra enhancing practices: “Exploring the Unborn Light,” “Yin Breathing,” and “Exploring the Chakras”
  • Discuss markers on the path of becoming a true person—a unique, unprecedented, unfolding process.

What if you could learn the ultimate teachings of Tibetan Buddhism as they were meant to be received—guided every step of the way by an experienced master? This practice, known as Mahamudra or “The Great Revelation,” was once taught only to elite students in secluded monasteries and cloisters. Now renowned teacher Dr. Reginald Ray has created an unprecedented audio learning course to make this profoundly transformative path available to listeners everywhere with Mahamudra for the Modern World. Spanning 33 CDs and featuring meditations and insights never before available to a general audience, this extraordinary audio training includes:

  • A complete toolbox of body-based shamatha meditations to still the mind and set the foundation for exploring the immeasurable expanse of being
  • Vipashyana meditations that take you on a progressive path of inquiry into the nature of awareness itself
  • Innovative teachings on dismantling the klesas (difficult emotions) through heightening our experience of them
  • More than 40 guided meditations unfolded through a series of increasingly subtle and profound practices

Mahamudra is revered in Tibetan Buddhism as the most direct route to seeing the world in all its transcendent beauty, power, and perfection. With his gift for distilling esoteric teachings for today's student, Dr. Ray has created a powerful training program for anyone seeking to engage in this life-altering journey, allowing us to discover this unsurpassed tradition for meeting ultimate reality—and awakening to the boundless freedom that is our fundamental nature.

Amazing

I had this course on my wish list then purchased it during the Christmas time sales event... the description called to me. I am halfway through the course taking it very slow and methodically. I find the course lecture time very informative and particularly useful for when the meditation practices happen. I have tried meditation and guided visualization in the past and have found value in it but nothing lasting... but with this practice of Mahamudra I have found amazing insights into myself & have touched places that I never knew existed! After searching for so long I am happy to proclaim I found the one practice that really has had a meaningful and lasting impact on my connection to myself (know thyself) in knowing different ways to touch my true essence. Highly recommend this program!

very monotone delivery of the material

Reggie Ray is very clear, organized, and concise in his delivery and way of approaching meditation practices, however, it is difficult to concentrate on what he is saying since he never modulates his voice and is in a drone style of delivering. This affects my absorption of the material. It is recommended to go over the meditation techniques, so as to be able to do them on your own. Memorize the breathing techniques and the way it integrates with your body.

Amazing

I was skeptical about the idea of transmissions in general and certainly receiving them by means of an audio recording. It works, at least it does for me. There is no doubt in my mind that I have recognized the natural state through this recording. How wonderful that one can receive a complete training course in Mahamudra as an internet download.

Great teaching for all levels

I bought it one year ago and I was very excited by the contents of the course. I went through all of it once,but now I regularly go back to some specific chapters to enjoy the profundity of R.Ray experience, depending of my current needs. I am a member of a sangha ( shambhala ) and i really like to accompany my "live teachings" with some i picked up by my own. R.Ray teachings are part of these teachings.

I enjoy the anecdotes about Trungpa Rinpoche life.

Thanks for these challenging offering, not easy to deliver by audio tape such a teaching.
