Six Stages of Training in Mahamudra

Geshe-la describes six stations on the “journey to the city of enlightenment”:

  1. Identifying our own mind
  2. Realizing our mind directly
  3. Identifying our subtle mind
  4. Realizing our subtle mind directly
  5. Identifying very subtle mind
  6. Realizing our very subtle mind directly.

This progression from gross to subtle to very subtle (causal) is repeated in many traditions and paths. I’d like to learn more about other stage models in order to be able to correlate them with the Kadampa ‘Oral Lineage’ teachings on Mahamudra.

For the time being, I’d like describe these stations (and the methods for attaining them) in a bit more detail.

Stay tuned.
