Description from When the Clouds Part

This short text (PIW) relies on the Atyantajñānasūtra for its Mahāmudrā instructions at the moment of death. It says that one needs to understand that all appearances as well as mind are not really existent and are unfindable, and then one needs to settle within the state of nonconceptuality. Thus, the nonconceptuality that abides as the natural state and the nonconceptuality of meditation meet like mother and child, through which one will attain Mahāmudrā in the intermediate state. (p. 320)
