Mahamudra of Maitripa

Post by bhava » Wed Mar 11, 2020 8:33 pm

I have been looking for an english translation of any of Maitripas texts on mahamudra.
Wikipedia speaks of a cycle of 26 texts..(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maitripada) Thanks.

If I recall, Brunnholzl translated some in a book of pith instructions--I will look and get back to you.
Maitripa's also important for the Shangpa Mahamudra transmission, ChagChen Ga'uma.
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")
