This Mahamudra teaching – called the Ganges River of Mahamudra – is a very beneficial, yet simple teaching for the experienced practitioner. This teaching, from the great Indian master Tilopa (988–1069) of the Kagyu lineage, shows how one can utilize experiences in nature, in the physical world, to calm and relax the mind. This teaching should be of particular interest and benefit to those who live in this urban environment and tend to have busy and hurried schedules. The Mahamudra is a practice which can be applied to different aspects of daily life.
