Lives, Talk 1 – Early Mother & Father

This is the first in a series of talks meant to introduce the lineage holders of the Karma Kagyu. We will be mainly relying on History of the Karmapas by Lama Kunsang, Lama Pemo and Marie Aubele and include information from the newly released The Karmapas and Their Mahamudra Forefathers. Talks on these short biographies will be interspersed with talks based on Ultimately Perfect His Eminence Tai Situ Rinpoche’s excellent exposition of the view of Mahamudra. All of these books are available through Namse Bangdzo Bookstore & at the Columbus KTC book table. This first talk, by meditation instructor Eric Weinberg, is an introduction to the Indian masters Tilopa & Naropa.
