Modern Mahamudra Texts

I thought I'd field the idea that alongside our thread on classic mahamudra texts, a list on modern texts might be helpful.

I'll start with

What is this "Great Nudra" you speak of?

For that matter, what's a "small Nudra," or any nudra at all?


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

Most of the modern texts are commentaries on the classical texts. And here Thrangu Rinpoche is most prolific. But if you want to study mahamudra, you're far better off getting instructions in person from a teacher, though I wouldn't discourage reading texts as well.
