Mahamudra is most well-known as a teaching within the Kagyu lineages of Tibetan Buddhism . However the Tibetan Buddhist Gelug and Sakya schools also practice Mahamudra, as does Shingon Buddhism , the other major sub-school of the Vajrayana . The Nyingma and Bön traditions practise Dzogchen , a cognate but distinct method of direct introduction to the empty nature of mind. Nyingma students may also receive supplemental training in Mahamudra, and the Palyul Nyingma lineage preserves a lineage of the "Union of Mahamudra and Ati Yoga" originated by Karma Chagme .

The Kagyu lineage divides the Mahamudra teachings into three types, 'sutra Mahamudra', 'tantra Mahamudra', and 'essence Mahamudra'. Sutra Mahamudra, as the name suggests, draws its philosophical view and meditation techniques from the sutrayana tradition. Tantric Mahamudra employs such tantric techniques as tummo , dream yoga , and clear light yoga , three of the six yogas of Naropa . Essence Mahamudra is based on the direct instruction of a qualified lama.
