It is a marvelous compliment to the more stirring effects of settling the mind and awareness of awareness. Little is said about the practice before we begin.
* In a beginningless universe, shouldn’t all beings be enlightened?
* Settling the mind in its natural state and multiple lucid dreamers.
* Classic yidam practices, balancing with shamatha, and three-year retreats.
* Maintaining shamatha.
* A reality where Padmasambhava is born from a lotus.
