Tenzin Kunzang Jigme Rinpoche, the seventh H.H. Taklung Matul Rinpoche was born in 1977. At the age of 10, His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama formally recognized him as the reincarnation of the sixth H.H.Taklung Matul Rinpoche, Thupten Jigme Choechok. He received the traditional Taklung Kagyu lineage teachings from H.H. Taklung Shabdung Rinpoche Thupten Jangchup Choeki Nima. Under the guidance of H. H. the Dalai Lama, he received his formal training (Buddhist philosophical studies) at the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics School in Dharamsala, India. H.H. Taklung Matul Rinpoche is known for his clarity and precision teaching in English. Currently, Rinpoche resides in Pokhara, Nepal.

This Mahamudra teaching is from the precious text, The Amrita of the Essential Accomplishment by the Taklung Kagyu master Gelong Ngawang Tashi Paldrub. Short, precise, and easy to practice, it explains succinctly how to traverse the path from the outset of the four mind-changings up until essential Mahamudra, the peak of all of Buddha's teachings. It is a teaching that is deeply beneficial both for beginner and advanced practitioners.

H.H. Taklung Matul Rinpoche is coming this weekend, and will be spending two weekends on this teaching.

Can someone please elaborate on the description of the teaching?

The text was previously available on scribd but seems to have been taken out now. It is a text that Phakchok Rinpoche has taught mahamudra from over the last couple of years. It begins with four mind changing a and proceeds gradually through shamana and vipashana before giving an introduction to nature of mind. It is a pithy but traditional mahamudra text.

Yes, as Philji mentioned, it is a clear and concise manual laying out the entire path of mahamudra in a manner in which each aspect is to be actually practiced and realized within one's own experience. It includes:
The four mind-changings
Preliminaries (ngondro): refuge, bodhicitta, the seven branches, cultivating loving kindness and compassion, Vajrasattva, mandala offerings and guru yoga
Shamatha: with support and without support
Vipashyana: identifying mind essence, pointing out instructions, resolving doubts
Dispelling obstacles, enhancement and qualities

It is very practical in its approach, and for each step one is expected to actually apply oneself to the teachings, resolving the various points about the mind, and presenting one's understanding to the teacher.

It's an excellent text and I have only heard good things about Matul Rinpoche, so all considered i'd highly recommend anyone who can to attend the teachings which take place in Toronto at Riwoche over two weekends

For sure! Khandro Rinpoche is also giving a teaching of the Three Words that Strike the Vital Point and a White Tara empowerment during the weekend in between HH Matul Rinpoche's teachings. Amazing. :thumbsup
