The Karma Kamtsang Preliminary Practices

The Chariot that Travels the Noble Path is the standard practice text for the mahamudra preliminaries in the Karma Kamtsang tradition, composed by the Ninth Gyalwang Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje. Presented here is a new edition prepared by the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, who wrote a new lineage supplication and made other edits in the guru yoga practice to bring it closer to the original sources.

This practice should be done only by people who have received the appropriate empowerment, transmission, and instruction from a qualified guru.

The commentary for the ngondro practices featured in this ebook is published seperately as The Torch of True Meaning.

Ngondro for Our Current Day also gives instructions on the short ngondro practice by the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa. Though the visualizations are slightly different, the general principals are the same as for this practice.
