We may ask how Mahamudra meditation and Mind Training are related. There are two kinds of truths or realities, the conventional and ultimate. Mahamudra is a very high-level teaching that concerns the ultimate truth of reality. But sometimes we are unable to realize that ultimate meaning, and because of this, various things happen to us. Sometimes our meditation goes very well, but at other times our diligence decreases, our pride increases, and our meditation doesn’t go the way it should. During these down times, the instructions of Mind Training are very beneficial to practice.
