Although there are various methods, both extensive and concise, for performing this ritual, here I have written it out as a daily practice with the liturgies abridged according to my own wishes. This was written by Jnana (His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche), the decrepit old granddad of all who sell the vajrayana in the marketplace.
