Unless the sun of devotion shines

Upon the snow peak of the master’s four kāyas,

The stream of blessings will never fall.

So strive to arouse devotion in your mind!

A series of Guru Yoga (bla ma'i rnal 'byor) practices:

This short guru yoga features Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö, Dudjom Rinpoche, Khandro Tsering Chödrön, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche himself.

This brief guru yoga incorporates elements of the common and uncommon preliminaries; it concludes with the four empowerments, the fourth of which represents the ultimate form of practice.

A guru yoga focusing on the so-called Three Mañjuśrīs of Tibet, i.e., Longchen Rabjam (1308–1364), Sakya Paṇḍita (1182–1251) and Tsongkhapa Lobzang Drakpa (1357–1419). Here, Jamyang Khyentse further identifies Longchen Rabjam with the bodhisattva Vajrapāṇi and Tsongkhapa with the bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara.

A simple, unelaborate practice based on the principle that "naked ordinary awareness... is the wisdom mind of the glorious guru."

This guru yoga, written in 1995, is one of the late Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok's most famous compositions. He later wrote a heart-advice as a supporting instruction for it.

This short, unelaborate guru yoga is written from an absolute perspective, according to which clear, empty awareness is the very nature of the guru, and the practice is simply to remain in such a state.

A short guru yoga in which the guru is the embodiment of all lineage masters, especially Samantabhadra, Guru Padmasambhava, Dorje Drolö, Düddul Lingpa, Dudjom Lingpa, Dodrupchen Jigme Tenpe Nyima and Lerab Lingpa himself. The text remained for many years in the possession of Tulku Dorje Dradül (1891–1959), Dudjom Lingpa's youngest son, and was copied by Kyala Khenpo (1893–1957).

In this guru yoga, a mind terma of Tertön Sogyal, the lama is visualized in the form of Dorje Tötreng Tsal. The text was revealed in association with the Nechung Oracle and it remains a daily practice of Nechung Monastery to this day.
