Does anybody know if a second volume exists or is expected?

Doesn't exist, I wouldn't hold my breath, just from Gerardo's introduction- he seems to be saying that all the good stuff is in the one that's been translated, tho maybe one day. Possible that the remainder covers material that's already been well-covered, as opposed to the one we have which is pretty special and unique.

No news either way on a Vol 2, but wanted to offer this video of Gerardo briefly discussing Vol 1.

Gerardo told me in 2015 or 2016 that he had almost finished volume two and that it would be published around Fall/Winter of 2017. I haven't seen him since then so it seems to have been delayed but I think it should be published in the next year or two based on him saying it was in the editing phase. I haev read the whole thing in Tibetan and it is my Mahamudra bible. The second half is amazing, a lot on the phases of pointing out instructions as well as an extremely detailed and clear explanation of the refinement of consciousness through the four yogas which in my opinion is crucial. So lets pray he gets it finished and that his health stays stable throughout the process as he has been ill.

Thank you for posting this video.

It says:
The Third Khamtrul Rinpoche (Kunga Tenzin, 1680–1728) realized the natural state at the age of 3 and he said it never wavered throughout his life.

Remarkable and wonderful.
