The Six Yogas (or, more literally, Dharmas) of Naropa (ན་རོ་ཆོས་དྲུག, naro chö druk, Wyl. na ro chos drug), sometimes also referred to simply as the Six Yogas (ཆོས་དྲུག་, chö druk, Wyl. chos drug). chos drug), are six sets of teachings and practices which originate from the Indian mahasiddha Naropa. They form the basis of the inner yoga practices of Mahamudra, as practised in the Kagyü and Gelug schools

Glen Mullen background explains why this translation is so good. Glenn Mullin is a Tibetologist, Buddhist writer, translator of classical Tibetan literature, and teacher of Tantric Buddhist meditation. Glenn lived in the Indian Himalayas between 1972 and 1984, where he studied philosophy, literature, meditation, yoga, and the enlightenment culture under thirty-five of the greatest living masters of the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. His two principal tantric gurus were the late great masters Kyabje Ling Dorjechang and and Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang, who were best known as Yongdzin Che Chung, the two main gurus of the present Dalai Lama.
I cant say enough about how good this book is and since the other reviewer gives highlights I agree with I wont be redundant. WHat is also important about this book is that Glen Mullen comments openly on some of the more esoteric practices dealing with Karmamudra and the creation of the illusory bodies. The 6 Yogas of Naropa in my opinion are some of the most well known and important practices within Tibetan Buddhism. If you have any training in working with them and are looking to deepen your understanding in these yogas, as there are fewer and fewer Lama's teaching them these days then this book is for you.

This is Mullin's companion volume to Tsongkhapa's Six Yogas of Naropa. It contains texts on the Naropan Yogas by Tilopa(Naropa's teacher),Naropa (scholar cum mahasiddha and the system's namesake), short texts by the Gelugpa sclolars Jey Sherab Gyatso, and Gyalwa Wensapa, Tsonkapa's short practice manual, and a text by the First Panchen Lama. Mullin's introduction and the brief chapter introductions are absolutely excelent providing context and a conceptual framework without being extremly dry or academic (in the prejorative sense) which is quite a feat considering the obscure subject matter. Mullin has brought out more quality information on the Six Yogas tradition than any other author and this may be his best effort to date.

There is solid material concerning the "nine blendings" (introducing the three "kayas" or "bodies" into the path in the three states of meditation, sleep, and intermediate state). There is some nice material on Tummo (especially the Panchen lama's text) and the material by Naropa and Tilopa while a brief and somewhat cryptic is great to have in English translation.

I was a little surprized that tise volume was smaller than his previous Tsongkhapa translation, but was very pleased by the quality of the material presented. Good Stuff.

Glenn H. Mullin is an expert on Tibetan Buddhism, having written and translated over two dozen books from the tradition, many works from the esoteric teachings of the great Lamas. This book of his is a superb work on the esoteric practice of the six inner yogas.

Ideally, a reader would have a fund of meditative experience, preferably within the Buddhist tradition and preferably under the guidance of an experienced teacher. However, thanks to the translator's 10 page introduction and a clearly written preamble to each of the 6 sections, those new to these teachings will find much that is accessible.

Here are brief quotes as outlined in the first section -- The Oral Instruction of the Six Yogas by the Indian Mahasiddha Tilopa.

INNER HEAT YOGA
The yogic body, a collection of energy channels,
Coarse and subtle, possessing the energy fields,
is to be brought under control.

ILLUSORY BODY YOGA
The yogi thus contemplates the twelve similes
And sees the reality of how all things are illusory.

CLEAR LIGHT YOGA
The yogi working with the central channel
Places the mind in the central channel
And fixes concentration on the drop at the heart.

BARDO YOGA
Consciousness goes to outer objects, but
He (the yogi) regards them as objects of a dream.
The appearances of death persist for seven days,
Or perhaps as much as seven times seven.
And then one must take rebirth.

YOGAS OF CONSCIOUSNESS TRANSFERENCE AND FORCEFUL PROJECTION
Consciousness is thrown to the heart
Of the deity inseparable from the guru,
And from there to whatever buddhafield is desired.

Here is one more quote, a quote from Tilopa's student Naropa, perhaps an appropriate quote for anyone thinking of beginning this esoteric practice:
"The qualified disciple is someone who has
Confidence, energy, intelligence, and compassion,
Is mindful of the shortcomings of worldly life,
And has transcended worldly concerns."

Again, this is an excellent book on the subject, giving a broad range of teachings on Naropa's Six Yogas. Even if you are only attracted to only one yoga, say dream yoga or bardo yoga, this book will serve as a fine introduction.
