The 'Yogatantra' (Sanskrit) 'conveyance' (Sanskrit: yana) is the most sublime of the three Outer Tantras. It includes a class of Buddhist tantric Template:Wiki as well as 'praxis' (Sanskrit: sadhana) associated with this class. The Yogatantra yana is evident in both the Sarma traditions of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the Nine Yana path of the Nyingmapa tradition.

Jamgon Kongtrul (1813-1899) defines Yoga tantra by making reference to the Two Truths doctrine and 'method' (Sanskrit: upaya) and 'wisdom' (Sanskrit: prajna) and is rendered into English from the Tibetan by Guarisco and McLeod, (2005: p.128) thus:

    "Yoga tantra is so named because it emphasizes the inner yoga meditation of method and wisdom; or alternatively, because based on knowledge and understanding of all aspects of the profound ultimate truth and the vast relative truth, it emphasizes contemplation that inseparably unites these two truths."

Nomenclature, Template:Wiki and Template:Wiki

    'Yogatantra' (Tibetan: Template:BigTibetan, Wylie: rnal 'byor rgyud)


Yoga tantra involves 'deity yoga' (Tibetan: Template:BigTibetan, Wylie: lha'i rnal 'byor; Sanskrit: Devata-yoga).

    Tattvasamgraha tantra
    'Summation of the Real and the Glorious Paramãdya' (Sanskrit: Śriparamãdya)

The Yoga tantra, or tantra of union with the nature, is thus called because it emphasizes inner practice more than outer conduct. The abhiseka given here is the same as that of Upa but with the addition of the blessing of the vajra master.

View: In regard to absolute truth the practitioner realizes the non-conceptual, ultimate nature and its expression – luminosity. As result of this realization, within the context of Template:Wiki relative truth, phenomena appear as the “mandala of adamantine space” (vajradhatu mandala).

Meditation: During formal meditation the practitioner visualizes himself as a deity and invites from the buddhafield a wisdom deity similar in form to himself, who usually remains in the space before the practitioner. The relationship between the deity and the practitioner is one of equals or friends. During objectless meditatione practitioner merges his perception of phenomena with the absolute nature beyond Template:Wiki and rests in evenness. Phenomena are thus seen as the play of wisdom manifesting as deities.

Action: The practitioner still strives for accomplishment through achieving the “good” and eschewing the “bad.” Chief importance is given to the yoga of the deity and the practitioner strives to benefit others.

Fruit: Realization is attained in three lifetimes.

(bar chad kun sel kyi chos skor) - Here is a short introduction to the Barchey Künsel cycle: The Barchey Künsel is the heart essence of the accomplished master Padmasambhava who perceives the three times in the entirety. It is the quintessence of one billion heart sadhanas of the Guru, the most unique terma buried in the land of Tibet; and it is the first among the Four Cycles of Guru Sadhana. This Guru's Heart Practice that Dispels all Template:Wiki contains in completeness all the profound key points of the view, meditation and conduct of the Three Inner Tantras.

It manifested from the secret treasury of the great wisdom, the vast realization of the Second Buddha of Uddiyana, Guru Rinpoche, as the self-existing natural vajra Template:Wiki in Template:Wiki melodious tones. Its Template:Wiki that are unmodified by the Template:Wiki of ordinary people, its words that are without delusion, and its meaning that is unmistaken, are exclusively due to the kindness of the three powerful knowledge-holders Khyentse, Kongtrül, and Chokling, the great beings of the three families, who incarnated as masters to compile and propagate an ocean of secret teachings.

It is exclusively through their kindness that this teaching was established in writing as the splendor of unending Template:Wiki and happiness for the disciples in the Land of Snow, and propagated to flourish everywhere. This pure and perfect teaching, which effortlessly bestows, in accordance with one's wishes, the all-encompassing supreme and common siddhis, temporaily and ultimately, was an unprecedented diffusion of the gemstones of the profound meaning, like opening up for the treasury of the universal monarch.

DILGO KHYENTSE About the Barchey Künsel practice, which is the first and most extensive of the Four Cycles of Guru Sadhana, Jamgön Kongtrül says in his Seed of the Great Template:Wiki: "Generally, for the basic descriptions of how to practice this, take the third chapter taught in the Sheldam Nyingjang as basis and apply them, following your teacher's oral advice, in the extensive, Template:Wiki or short version, whichever is appropriate, and in accordance with the situation in terms of place, time, and type of person.

Whether you begin development or completion, first perform the general preliminaries of the fourfold mind-training and the four special preliminaries. For the main part, according to the system of Terchen Chokgyur Lingpa, take Sheldam Nyingjang as basis, and first practice Dharmakaya Amitayus followed by the Lotus Magical Net of Sambhogakaya, the Great Compassionate One Avalokiteshvara.

After that, combine the extensive or Template:Wiki version with the Nirmanakaya Padmasambhava, whichever is suitable, and complete the set number [of recitations] for approach and accomplishment. Following that, it is necessary to perform successively the specific approaches, combining the twelve manifestations with Trinley Nyingpo, and complete the four activities and the four ancillary practices as well as the practice of the teaching guardians. According to the system of the omniscient master, Padma Ösel Do-Ngak Lingpa Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo], perform, as the beginning of the main part, the single mudra according to the Gyüngyi Köljang, the Daily Practice Manual, as 'approach'; the condensed outer mandala of Trinley Nyingpo as the 'full approach;' Trinley Dringpo, the Template:Wiki Practice Manual, as 'accomplishment;' and Trinley Gyepa, the Extensive Practice Manual, together with Dzapkyi Köljang, the Recitation Manual, and so forth in a detailed way for the 'great accomplishment.'

The samadhis and visualizations for Template:Wiki of these should conform with the root text of the third chapter [of Sheldam Nyingjang]. Having properly performed the four aspects of approach and accomplishment, perform then the 'specific practices' such as those for Dharmakaya, Sambhogakaya and so forth, whichever is suitable. There is no difference between following either of these two systems since they both are lords of these profound teachings." [RY]
