Wouldn't the Mahamudra forum be better places in a "Meditation" area along with the Dzogchen forum and perhaps have forums for Shamatha, Vipassyana, Tonglen, etc. as well?

just a thought?

Mahamudra is more than a single meditation technique, while "vipashyana" covers a very big area. That's why I don't think so.
"If the Buddha-Nature is seen, there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing."
(Nirvana Sutra, T12n374p521b3; tr Yamamoto)

"Neither cultivation nor seated meditation — this is the pure Chan of Tathagata."
(Mazu Daoyi, X1321p3b23; tr. Jinhua Jia)

“Don’t rashly seek the true Buddha;
True Buddha can’t be found.
Does marvelous nature and spirit
Need tempering or refinement?
Mind is this mind carefree;
This face, the face at birth."
