Mahamudra, literally the “great seal,” refers to the ultimate nature of mind and reality, to a meditative practice for realizing that ultimate reality, and to the final result of this practice, ultimate enlightenment. This system of meditation works with both the conventional and ultimate nature of mind. Coming from Indian Buddhism through masters like Maitripa it became prominent in the new translation schools of Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug. In the Gelug tradition Panchen Lozang Chökyen wrote the famous root text that will be the basis of this teaching.
