page.24; The Union of Bliss and Emptiness. Teachings on the Practice of Guru Yoga by Dalai Lama:
Here is brief explanation of the short lineage. In secret biography by Jamyang Choje Tashi Pelden, Tsongkhapa had many visions of deities even as a child and after he came to central Tibet received many instructions from Manjushri. Then this transmission was handed down to Togden Jampel Gyatso...Then to Baso Chokyi Gyaltsen...then mahasiddha Chokyi Dorje...
Further Dalai Lama even wrote: Gelug as the practice of 3 types of Manjushris: Manjushri, Yamantaka
, Kalarupa from Tsongkhapa
BTW, I was mistaken, the practice is preserved in Khyentse Wangpo's Collection of All Tantras, and it is as I said, the lineage starts with Umapa.
As I know during the Yamantaka
Initiation of HYT from Gelug one is informed of the two lineages, the long from Lalitavajra and the short from Tsongkhapa. Moreover, the practice is according to unique visualisation from Tsongkhapa's vision. You know well the lineage in Vajrayana is the most important because without it ther will be not realization. In the case of Gelug Yamantaka
for sure there is the realization, for example the late Ling Rinpoche, a well-known pratitioner of Gelug Yamantaka
, and other such masters who stayed in thugdam Clear Light state several days.
