    Another good book (among many good books) is Clarifying the Natural State by Dakpo Tashi Namgyal. I just saw this book recommendation by Daniel Ingram yesterday from years ago and thought of sharing but probably you read already Oskar Melkeraaen Aas.
    Daniel Ingram:
    "Nice book: Clarifying the Natural State, by Dakpo Tashi Namgyal: seriously well-written stuff.
    Layers and layers and layers to the thing, so, if you feel there is yet another level not well-integrated, for which you don't automatically see as clearly as you wish to see, then learn the same things again for that layer, bringing up that layer consciously, clearly, doing what you feel the mind shouldn't do, but consciously, to awaken the things that don't seem to quite be awake, that seem off or wrong or whatever.
    They are still it, can't be otherwise, but there are ways to perceive them that clearly seem more awake than others.
    Labels like "4th path" can be slippery, sticky, and sometimes are unhelpful if they divide anything, split off anything, exclude anything, or create any sense of dichotomy, solidity, past, future, or stable present, or identity of even the most subtle variety.
    When all immediacy, regardless of anything the mind is or isn't doing, regardless of focus, regardless of what qualities of experience or mental state are present, regardless of what thought is doing or how it is perceived, regardless of stage or state or rank or level: when all of that naturally, immediately and automatically feels exactly like the thing itself all the way through and can't possibly feel otherwise, that is a prize worth the effort, regardless of what you call it. The Mahamudra kids call this "simultaneous mind", where pristine revealing wisdom and ordinary phenomena become the same thing or, you could say, recognize they always were."

    Oskar Melkeraaen Aas
    Soh Wei Yu Thank for the tips. I have heard it recommended before, read in moonbeams of mahamudra by same author now and then.
    Not sure what to say of Ingrams comment, need to read the book first.

    Oskar Melkeraaen Aas It's a good book. Almost all the practitioners I know that read it would recommend it. I've read it back in 2008

    Thrangu Rinpoche’s Pointing out the dharmakāya is good.

    Also Dakpo Tashi Namgyal’s Clarifying the natural state and the associated commentary Crystal clear.
