The Play of Mahamudra is a discourse on Virupa's mystical songs. Virupa was one of the eighty-four mahasiddhas, or great accomplished masters. These songs were sung by Virupa from his awakened state of enlightenment. For this reason these songs are a profound and poetic window into the indescribable state of the "mahamudra" the union of clarity and emptiness, wisdom and compassion.

This collection of teachings manages to explain in very straightforward language, the profound meanings hidden within Virupa's ancient mystical songs. It's rare that we are given such an insight into the enlightened mind of one of the greatest masters. This book is based on a series of talks Lama Migmar gave and because of that it maintains a colorful and conversational tone. This approach helped me stay more engaged than a dry academic text would have, and I found it easier to relate some of these teachings to my own life. While it remains accessible on the first read, I found myself returning to many sections and discovering more to contemplate each time. Even if one is not a practicing Buddhist, I think this book will be of interest. The wisdom described here extends well beyond any particular spiritual tradition.
