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.

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

"With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
The six paramitas and myriad means are complete within that essence."
