    all of these techniques are as valid as the other. Just find one that suits you and stick with it.

  • You wake …
    What do you do?
    The mind, body and expression/speech alter the nature/flavour/skill set.

    So rather than not-doing which is too advanced for the average crustacean …

    • mahamoody, similar to mahamudra but more dependent on the mood one is involved with
    • Sukha breathing, breathe in the joy, breathe out the metta. Similar to tonglen but without the sicklies
    • Western vagrayana, similar to Tibetan bon but with more Indian and less cowgals
