Mahamudra
Mahamudra is the practice of meditation which identifies enlightenment with the natural state of mind. Any effort to produce calm, bliss, or wisdom is viewed as a contrivance and deviation from this natural mind. By resting the mind without effort or contrivance mind's inherent enlightened nature is revealed.

Tantric Teachings and Empowerments
Tantric Budhhism is also called the resultant vehicle, as distinguished from Mahayana Buddhism, which is the causal vehicle. The causal vehicle cultivates the causes of enlightenment, unselfish compassion and the practice of the six perfections. Tantra, the resultant vehicle, is based on the fact that all beings already posess buddha nature and utilizes meditation practices where one visualizes oneself as a buddha. The meditator with firm faith in their inherent buddha nature and devotion to their teacher can make swifter progress with the Tantric teachings than on the Mahayana path.
