Mahamudra is known as a formless, completion-stage final practice. Mahamudra leads us step by step to complete liberation through direct recognition of the true nature of mind. At the request of Sakyong Mipham, the Venerable Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche taught Mahamudra to Shambhala Vajrayana students for many years. The transcripts of Khenpo Rinpoche’s teachings are now precious jewels within the treasury of teachings we hold in Shambhala.

This weekend we will begin a new cycle of Mahamudra study and practice at the Toronto Shambhala Center and all Shambhala Vajrayana students are invited to attend. We will explore the practice of Mahamudra through teachings, guided meditation practice, and group discussions. This weekend is an exciting and unique opportunity to deepen our understanding of this profound wisdom tradition.
