One way to do it from what I've heard. I am not a practitioner - I wouldn't know how to practice. Best advice I had was do my best at what I am best at (Buddhism Wise) So I chant and mix the good vibes with my normal thoughts without trying to change anything - repetition is good for your vibes. realize we all repeat - I'm a loser - I hate them - I want some ice cream - It's hot - Blah blah balh - always - get some new good well used mantra which for ages has been uplifting humanity and the surrounds of the practitioner and try what they did.

Oh, and there's this - Do any ngondro - I'm partial to the Dudjom new earlynoondro cause it's funny cause he was brilliant and just a scream.   Yeah Dudjom Rinpoche - I am really on a different but same path - My deities are all mostly for the most part are Shakta Dakinis like Queen Dechen Karmo and Ratnababe.  

I just have a thing for dancers so hot they can dance in the sky, call me crazy. No don't call me Lhuny, if you're a pal.



Kurukulle can take you to mahamudra and liberation and she's smokin.  Try her as your ishta - no lama will kill me or be hurt in the process. Gotta smoke a organic handrolled baccy. G'night all you awesome human beings. Glad to be in the present company. Sleep tight - or insomnia loose whichever is your deal.

In general you will probably want to cultivate tranquility and concentration in the beginning, the same way as any Buddhist path.
This is debatable.

Actually one of the few differences that I know of between Mahamudra and Dzogchen is that in Mahamudra you need to start with tranquility and insight, whereas in Dzogchen you can go straight into it. At least I've heard that from one Kagyu Rinpoche.
Warning: I'm enough of a fundamentalist Tibet style Buddhist to believe that for the last 1,000 years Tibet has produced a handful of enlightened masters in every generation. I do not ask that YOU believe it, but it will greatly simplify conversations if you understand that about me. Thanks.

The drikung Kagyupas have dzogchen practices, as well as mahamudra practices. Here's a link with some info on Dzogchen in Relation to Drikung kagyu lineage.
