Senses is considered the most profound and direct path to awakening in the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. This lineage of practical instructions helps us to experience the radiant purity of awareness and to stabilize this experience and integrate it with every aspect of our lives. For centuries, teachings on Senses have been passed down by some of Tibet’s greatest masters, including Milarepa and Gampopa.
If you have limited time or would like to stay focused on the essence of the Mahamudra path, we recommend you focus on the “Core Teachings” in each section. We have intentionally kept these selections brief so that even those with a very busy schedule can keep up.
If you have more time and are interested in exploring the Mahamudra path in more depth, we recommend that you start with the “Core Teachings” and then pick one or more of the other course elements to go deeper. You can add the traditional and contemporary readings, or pick one of the view, meditation, or application sections from the workbook and complete the practices and exercises.
If you have the time and are inspired to work with all of the readings, workbook exercises, and recommended practices, it will likely take you 3-4 hours per week for the study element, plus any additional time you spend working with the recommended practices and/or small group meetings.
