The Aspirational Prayer for Mahāmudrā

The III. Karmapa Rangjung Dorje (1284-1339) was both a great scholar and a great practitioner. He studied the Kagyü as well as the Nyingma tradition and he has brought the traditions of Mahāmudrā and Dzogchen closer together. In his early twenties he had a vision of Vimalamitra and Guru Rinpoche dissolving into him, and in that moment he received all the transmissions of the Dzogchen tantras.
One of his most famous works is the Aspirational Prayer for Mahāmudrā. The text starts with the aspiration to realize mahāmudrā, and then it leads us with a step-by-step description along the Buddhist path to show us how to reach that goal.




Medicine Buddha

While still training on the bodhisattva path, the medicine buddha took the vow that by hearing his name the sentient beings will be healed from their illnesses. Since every physical and mental disease is ultimately caused by the three mental poisons greed, hatred and ignorance, the practice of the medicine buddha can not only heal diseases, but also lead us on the path of liberation. Through his practice we pray for the healing activity of his deep blue light for ourselves as well as for other beings of the six realms.
