Machik's Complete Explanationby Machig Labdron
Synopses & Reviews
Machik's Complete Explanation is the most famous book of the teachings of Machik Lapdron, the great female saint and yogini of 11-12th century Tibet, now finally translated in its entirety into English.
Machik developed a system, the Mahamudra Chod, that takes the Buddha's teachings as a basis and applies them to the immediate experiences of negative mind states and malignant forces. Machik's unique feminine approach was to invoke and nurture the very "demons" that we fear and hate, transforming those reactive emotions into love. It is the tannic version of developing compassion and fearlessness, a radical method of cutting through ego-fixation.
