The most effective method is the constant identification with one’s own Buddha nature which is taught in the Diamond Way. When the oneness of the seer, what is seen, and the act of seeing is unbroken—during and between the times of meditation—the goal of the Great Seal (skt. Mahamudra) is reached.
Introduction and instructions to the following meditations are offered in all Diamond Way centers:
The first practice on the path to enlightenment.
16th Karmapa Meditation
A path to the realization of the nature of mind through identifying with the Lama. This is the primary meditation of the Karma Kagyu lineage.
Diamond Mind Meditation
Diamond Mind is used to dissolve harmful impressions in the mind.
Meditating on the Buddha of Limitless Light
This is used as a preparation for the practice of Conscious Dying.
