Once you have learned how to read and get familiar to the basic grammar; there are several options for entering slowly in the world of literary Tibetan.
- For beginners: The Heart Sutra, the 37 practices of Bodhisattva, Tersar Ngondro and Khandro Thukthik sadhana
- For intermediary: Other sadhanas from the Dudjom tersar: Vajrakilaya (Putri Regpung), Dorje Drollo, Garab Dorje (practice of the 3 fold sky), Troma short sadhana and ngondro from Dudjom lingpa, the aspiration prayer of Kuntu Zangpo (Kunzang Monlam) and (parts of the) Dagpo Targyen.
- For advanced student: Words of my perfect teachers and Richo “mountain retreat” (from Dudjom RInpoche).
- Another option would be that the student propose a text of his own to be studied (within a private class setting).
