Overview

Mahamudra, the highest level of teaching within Tibetan Buddhism, rewards study and practice with the realization of the very nature of mind itself. There is not a single experience which is not subsumed within the realizations of Mahamudra. On his first tour of the United States, His Holiness Chetsang Rinpoche gave detailed instructions in Mahamudra methods. He carefully explained each of the five stages of Mahamudra and taught its main meditational practices. He also gave precise instructions on posture and breathing for meditation, and answered many common questions using the teachings of Tilopa and Gampopa to illustrate his various points.

Drikung Rinpoche's "The Practice of Mahamudra" is a small book with a big "one hand clapping" round of applause. The Tibetean Buddhist practices of Mahamudra and Dzogchen can be arcane at best and at worst, opaque. Drikung has done a masterful job in this overview of Mahamudra practice and meaning.
