Publisher's Synopsis
The lineages that Naropa gave to his Tibetan lay-disciple Marpa Lotsawa (lit. "Marpa Translator"; b. 1012), especially that of the Six Yogas—inner heat, illusory body, clear light, consciousness transference, forceful projection, and bardo yoga—gradually pervaded thousands of monasteries and hermitages throughout Central Asia regardless of sect, and have served as the fundamental guide in the more than three thousand Gelugpa monasteries across Tibet.

Tsongkhapa's commentary entitled A Book of Three Inspirations: A Treatise on the Stages of Training in the Profound Path of Naro's Six Dharmas is commonly referred to as The Three Inspirations. Anyone who has read more than a few books on Tibetan Buddhism will have encountered references to the Six Yogas of Naropa, a preeminent yogic technology system.

"Glenn's study of the history, substance, and philosophical legacy of the Six Yogas of Naropa together with his translations of Tsongkhapa's treatise provides an invaluable guide to this tradition."      ~Buddhism Now
