THE THIRD KHAMTRUL RINPOCHE (1680-1729), a great Tibetan visionary, meditation master, civic leader, and polymath, was widely recognized for his teachings and writings on Mahamudra systems of meditation. GERARDO ABBOUD was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and starting in the early 1970s, lived in India and Nepal for fourteen years. Since 1986, Abboud has been president of the Dongyuling Center, Argentina, which offers free teachings on Buddhist theory and practice. He is the English interpreter for several Kagyu lamas and since 1992 has served as the Dalai Lama's interpreter in Latin America.
"This guidebook by the third Khamtrul Drodul Ngawang Kunga Tenzin clearly and extensively presents such topics as ground, path, and fruition; instructions on the four yogas of Mahamudra; and detailed descriptions of a yogin's meditative experiences. It is my hope that it may be of great benefit to those Westerners who wish to study and practice Mahamudra."--H.E. Dorzong Rinpoche "Because it is one of the most detailed and comprehensive presentations of Mahamudra teachings in existence, many years ago I encouraged Gerardo Abboud to prepare an English translation of the third Khamtrul Rinpoche's instructional treatise on coemergent wisdom. I'm truly delighted to see that his efforts have now resulted in this exceptional work. All those devoted to the path that leads to recognizing the mind's profound nature will surely cherish The Royal Seal of Mahamudra."--H.E. Ch kyi Nyima Rinpoche "The distinguishing feature of this commentary on Mahamudra by Khamtrul Ngawang Kunga Tenzin is the way it accurately covers the different experiences of practitioners. People's minds are varied so their experiences can differ as well. The author advises what antidotes to apply, what adjustments to make, how to determine if an experience is valid or not, and gives instructions to prevent straying to a wrong path. The translator Gerardo Abboud is not only learned about Mahamudra but also has the experience of practice, both of which are special conditions for an adequate translation. It is my dearest hope that this text may be of great benefit and lead countless beings to the realization of buddhahood."--Drubwang Tsoknyi Rinpoche
