The gathering of twenty-six texts on non-conceptual consciousness is the results of mixing the essence and tantric mahamudra teachings of Saraha, Nagarjuna and Savaripa with a selected type of Madhyamaka philosophy, known as 'non-abiding' (apratisthana), which goals at significantly transcending any conceptual review of precise fact. This objective is accomplished by means of "withdrawing one's awareness" (amanasikara) from something that contains the duality of a perceived and perceiver. the result's a "luminous self-empowerment," Maitripa's (986-1063) ultimate tantric research of amanasikara. the gathering of texts on non-conceptual cognizance performs a very important function, because it constitutes, including Naropa's teachings, the most resource of bKa' brgyud lineages. The variation and translation of this assortment is by means of one other textual content attributed to Maitripa, the *Mahamudrakanakamala, which was once translated by way of Mar pa Lo tsa ba Chos kyi blo gros (11th century) into Tibetan. The *Mahamudrakanakamala selections up at the issues of the gathering and exhibits that each one features of Maitripa's mahamudra have been certainly handed directly to early bKa' brgyud masters. in addition to an English translation and research, the current booklet encompasses a re-creation of the on hand Sanskrit at the foundation of the editio princeps by means of Haraprasad Shastri, the variation of the learning staff of Sacred Tantric Texts at Taisho college, the Nepalese manuscript NGMPP B 22/24, and the manuscript no. 151 from the Todai collage Library. The Tibetan variation of all texts relies at the Derge and Peking bsTan 'gyur and the dPal spungs version of Karmapa VII Chos grags rgya mtsho's (1454-1506) number of Indian Mahamudra Works (Phyag rgya chen po'i rgya gzhung).
