Buddha’s explanation of the mind is practical, wise and deeply transformative; it reveals an experiential path leading to the realization of our full spiritual potential. In particular, within Kadampa Buddhism, the presentation of Mahamudra emphasizes the meditation on the clear nature of the mind and its enormous creative power. Through this sublime, profound, and deeply relaxing meditation, we gain deep insight into the flexible and limitless nature of our own mind.
