The oral instructions of Mahamudra are a traditional series of meditations, motivated by compassion for others, that lead us to the experience of more subtle and peaceful states of mind. Practised by millions of people over many generations, they guide us on a journey home, into our heart, where we can realize our very subtle mind, called the “clear light of bliss”. Like the sun dispels darkness, the clear light of bliss has enormous power to dissolve away our deluded and stressful negative ways of thinking. The very subtle mind is normally obscured by negative thoughts and distractions, like clouds obstructing the sky. Through Mahamudra meditation we can free our mind from these obscurations, experience the essential purity and peace of our own mind, and develop great power to heal others in our world.
