Item Description

 

Mahamudra is revered in Tibetan Buddhism as the most direct route to seeing the world in all its transcendent beauty, power, and perfection. In Mahamudra for the Modern World, Dr. Reginald Ray presents a powerful training program for anyone seeking to engage in this transformative journey.

Over the course of 37 hours of recordings (33 CD's), Dr. Ray skillfully leads us into the depths of mahamudra practice through grounded and thorough instruction. Given the clarity of his step-by-step presentation, this cycle of teachings is truly a unique and precious resource for both entering and deepening in mahamudra practice. In classic style, Dr. Ray helps us understand the nuances and subtleties that are at the heart of this remarkable tradition.

The 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.

"Sometimes we think that meditation is a very simple process where we?re given a technique and we sit down and we might do the same technique for twenty or thirty years. According to the mahamudra, meditation is as varied and as resourceful as the human mind itself. In the mahamudra tradition, there are a number of major areas of practice.

Within each of these areas there are many techniques. Even though the corpus of mahamudra practices is quite large, the journey of mahamudra is very simple. In this program I want to show you some of the main practices and how to use them. Also, l want to show you how these practices unfold on the path and how you, as a person who is in a process of spiritual growth and transformation, might make use of this tradition at different stages on your journey." -Dr. Ray, excerpted from Mahamudra for the Modern World.

Sounds True was founded in 1985 by Tami Simon with a clear mission: to disseminate spiritual wisdom. Since starting out with one woman and her tape recorder, Sounds True has grown into a multimedia publishing company with a catalog of over 600 titles, including spoken-word audio, audio learning courses, books, interactive learning kits, music, and instructional DVDs. Their offerings feature some of the leading teachers and visionaries of our time and embrace the world's major spiritual traditions, as well as the arts and humanities.

"Our approach to publishing is not dependent on a single format or technology--rather, we strive with every title to preserve the essential 'living wisdom' of the author, artist, or spiritual teacher," says publisher Simon. Sounds True strives to create products that not only provide information to a reader or listener, but that also embody the essential quality of a wisdom transmission between a teacher and a student.

To maintain their integrity as a business and a publisher, Sounds True strives to embody the qualities of consciousness and compassion taught by their authors in the day-to-day business practices and environmental responsibility.
