Karma Chagme was a brilliant practitioner and teacher who was of great help to the Tenth Karmapa. He held the teachings of both the Kagyu and Nyingma Lineage. Khenpo Karthar on Karma Chagme's Mountain Dharma at the request of the 17th Karmapa over four years. These teachings covered on what to do in a retreat in every imaginable situation.
I can think of no lama who could have explained these four volumnes more clearly and carefully to the ordinary practitioner than Khenpo Karthar. These four volumes also include information that cannot be found in other Dharma texts and the lucidity of Khenpo Karthar's teachings can be seen in the questions and answers to his students which fortunately were included at the end of each chapter.
Volume 2 of Mountain Dharma covers How to protect from all danger while on retreat, Geomancy or the placement of the retreat cabin and articles, preparing to sleep using Kusali grass, doing the White Tara, the Tseringma and the Vairochana practices, and closing the door to the lower realms with Yoga Tantra.
