Crystal Clear, by the learned and realized Tibetan Master Thrangu Rinpoche, is a companion volume to the classic medi-tation manualClarifying the Natural State. In his straightfor-ward and lucid style Rinpoche gives us an indis-pen-sable guidebook for insight practice (vipashyana). For people who want more than just theory, this is a handbook that begins with watch-ing the breath and leads practitioners through stages of realization, all the way to complete enlightenment.

In Mahamudra, as one takes the path of direct percep-tion, a per-son can obtain true and complete enlightenment within the same body and lifetime. Whatever the situation, Mahamudra provides appropriate methods and techniques. So, whether one is able to undertake a lot of hardship or not, whether one is very diligent or not, whichever type of person you might be there is always great benefit in practic-ing Mahamudra. The practice can be done in the solitude of retreat or while involved in the daily complexities of mod-ern life. Mahamudra training is always applicable in any situation, at any moment of life.
