Ngondro for Our Current Day: A Short Ngondro Practice and Its Instructions



By H.H. Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje

Publication Date: July, 2010

In this succinct teaching presented in 2006 by His Holiness the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa in Bodhgaya, India, students are guided through a shortened version of the preliminaries for mahamudra practice, which His Holiness composed with the aim of benefiting practitioners from developed countries who often lead busy lives. The complete practice, in Brief Recitations, is written in English, Tibetan, and Tibetan transliteration, and complete instructions for the Four Special Preliminaries are provided, with the exception of guru yoga. His Holiness guides students through the details of each practice, including the visualizations of Refuge, Vajrasattva purification, and Mandala offerings -- often punctuated with his good humor. A summary of the practice sequences and a list of precepts of the refuge vow are also included in two appendices.
