This short song on the view and meditation of the Great Perfection was composed by Shabkar Tsokdruk Rangdrol (1781–1851) but has recently been misattributed to Khenpo Gangshar Wangpo.

Khenpo Gangshar describes this pithy advice on how to be truly happy by settling into realization of mind's essential nature as "insane ramblings", but it will surely be of great benefit to practitioners.

Basic instructions on the preliminary contemplations of the rarity of the freedoms and opportunities, impermanence, karma and the sufferings of saṃsāra, followed by a simple explanation of the ground, path and fruition according to Mahāmudrā.

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 concise instruction pointing out the nature of mind, which Khenpo Gangshar offered to the students of Thrangu Shedrup Dargye Ling in 1957.

Perhaps Khenpo Gangshar's most famous work, this pithy guide to Dzogchen practice includes instructions on the uncommon preliminaries, the analytical meditations of a paṇḍita, and the main practice, which is the resting meditation of a kusulu, as well as how to integrate the practice.

Gangshar Wangpo tells us that he based these verses—which explain how to eliminate obstacles to practice and sustain realization of mind's essential nature—on scripture, the oral instructions of his guru, and his own experience.

The famous yogi Khenpo Gangshar Wangpo likens his composition of this short text of advice on renunciation and the practice of maintaining awareness to an old dog suddenly vomiting gold.

Rabjam Rinpoche adapted the text of 'A Short Remembrance of, and Prayer to My Master, the Wish-Fulfilling Jewel entitled, A Lament of Faith,' which was composed by Khenpo Chimé Rigdzin and addressed to Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok (1933–2004), in order to create this moving supplication to Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910–1991).

This supplication was composed in time for Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche's sixty-first year, a potential period of obstacles according to Tibetan astrology.
