question about the 4 blisses (tantra/mahamudra)

Toggle
Hey guys,

does anyone have any experience or information that they are willing to share about the four blisses referred to in the Six Yogas of Naropa, relating to tummo and karmamudra.

Specifically I'm interested to hear phenomenological reports, maps compared to other paths (e.g. daoist or yogic?), and most interestingly if you done this system, how did it impact you in terms of your cultivation, realisation, etc..


thanks, (Edited - grammar)

Four layer fractal.

Stream entry layer dissolves into the unconscious.

2nd layer fractal investigates the solid third layer samadhi that is in absorption everywhere.

4th layer is present in the previous three layers and is made of the three characteristics. Absorption in this layer is the stuff of those who chose mahaparinirvana, and reads like the stuff of Alan Wallace

Clear or neutral bliss
Stinging, grabbing, or pinching bliss
Disorienting bliss.

There was one other but I don't remember it now

I don't have anything personal to add but you might try Great Bliss by Houseman, Tantra section of aypsite or a search there, or the Tao Bums or a search there.
