A series of texts associated with the treasure-revealer Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje (mdo mkhyen brtse ye shes rdo rje, 1800–1866), renowned as the 'mind emanation' of Jigme Lingpa:

- The Recitation for the Gradual Path of the Preliminaries from The Exceedingly Secret, Enlightened Heart-Essence of the Ḍākinī | Ngöndro
This liturgy for the preliminary practices, or ngöndro (sngon 'gro), of Do Khyentse's terma revelation Yangsang Khandrö Tuktik, 'The Exceedingly Secret, Enlightened Heart-Essence of the Ḍākinī', includes the common, outer practices of contemplation and the main, inner preliminaries of taking refuge, generating bodhicitta, offering the maṇḍala, purifying obscurations through Vajrasattva, and guru yoga.
