Karma Pakshi helped form the 900-year Karmapa lineage in its early stages of development. He is an important figure in the history of the genesis of the reincarnate Lama tradition, the ‘Living Buddhas’ of Tibet. A master of meditation, and a visionary, he was influential in the courts of two Mongolian emperors, Kubilai Khan and Mongke Khan. Karma Pakshi’s influence continues through two meditation practices, Mingyur Dorje’s ‘Karma Pakshi Guru Yoga’, and Trungpa Rinpoche’s ‘Sadhana of Mahamudra’.
The presentation by Charles Manson will cover recent research into Karma Pakshi’s life and writings. After an introduction to the life of the 2nd Karmapa, Charles Manson will introduce us to some of Karma Pakshi’s meditation instructions, with a few short sessions of meditation practice.
