1- Meditate on Bodhicitta
2- Meditate on the Yidam deity
3- Meditate on the Guru Yoga
4- Meditate on the Mahamudra
5- Seal the practice with the dedication.

NOTE: Although these five are basic practices for all the Kagyu lineages and other schools, it is the Drigungpas who presented this as a five-fold system of practice. [MR]
