In The Mood For Meditation

As a result of the posture that you have developed through meditative discipline and the awareness techniques you have been using, such as following the breath, you begin to notice that there are moments of gap, moments of fresh outlook, moments of letting go, and moments of a natural sense of existence. There are moments of natural relaxation. This is the practice of mahamudra, which cuts through any habitual tendencies, any thought processes that could create problems.
