A Brief Essential Guide To Highest Yoga Tantra Sadhanas 

This is a complete list of Highest Yoga Tantra sadhanas published by Tharpa. Next to each title is a brief description of the sadhana. The key shows whether a particular sadhana is used for either just Heruka, just Vajrayogini or both Heruka and Vajrayogini practice. In addition, where a particular sadhana is printed in a book, the title of that book where the sadhana appears is also listed. Finally, where a sadhana appears only within a book, and is not printed separately, the note "No separate sadhana" appears next to the title.
