this book covers vipassana
dudjom lingpa - "taking the impure mind as the path"
aka settling the mind in its natural state
again we are using deduction - sutta 148 - self is not the 6 senses and their 6 sets
sophisticated method for examining the manifest nature of thoguhts, emotions, etc. all internal mental objects
from the vantage point of the stillness of awareness
increasingly rigorous internal objectivity the circumstances by which mental events arise how they are present once arisen how they vanish
examine the still vs constant flux whether by their own nature "I" and "mind" or simply stimulus response events arising in dependance upon prior causes and conditions
