Whilst on the one hand, it is said that Mahamudra is a very advanced form of meditation, on the other, if one were already advanced one would not need any instructions.
Mahamudra manuals often tend to explain everything step by step as if the reader does not know anything.
Obviously then, they are meant for people like us. In the King Doha, Saraha gives a step by step account of the pitfalls a meditation practitioner can fall into and how to avoid them.
With a background of practising extensively in the tantric tradition, he gives his reasons for considering the Mahamudra approach an appropriate path.
Based on a commentary by Karma Trinleypa, Traleg Rinpoche gives a straightforward and clear explanation of Saraha's message to us as practitioners of Mahamudra.
