In this extraordinary 10-part series, Patrick Sweeney offers a comprehensive introduction to Integral Buddhism–sometimes called the “fourth turning” of Buddhism. Here you will learn the story of the Buddha, the basic fundamentals of Buddhism, the essentials of meditation and tonglen practices, and some basic tips to help remind you of your already-enlightened nature.
Patrick Sweeney, the holder of the Karma Kagyü lineage, offers a powerful mahamudra teaching. The term mahamudra literally means “great seal” or “great symbol”, a body of teaching that represents the culmination and fulfillment of all the practices of the new schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Mudra refers to the fact that each phenomenon appears vividly, and maha refers to the fact that it is beyond concept, imagination, and projection.
