Can a person practice both Dzogchen and Mahamudra?

Post by Tenma » Fri Oct 19, 2018 8:09 pm

So I recieved the Ganges Mahamudra instructions and have been practicing them for a time for over a month, but I also received Dzogchen teachings as well.

Is it possible to practice both? Or is this going to lead up to more troubles?

Yes. Easily. Both describe the same state.

Oh good! I thought their methods to the same state were "contradictory"(whatever proper word it be for conflicting things) against each other.
Oh well, thank you!
