Hello,
how important or significant in the context of nyingma schools is Terdag Lingpa's cycle Rigdzin Thugthig (The Heart Essence of the Vidyadhara)? Thank you. :-)

Terdak Lingpa was a very important Nyingma master and terton and his work have had a huge impact on the Nyingma tradition and in particular the Mindroling tradition.

I don't personally know the Rigdzin Thugthig but obviously Khandro Rinpoche considers it very important, that is good enough for me.

Interesting, if that thangka (on the Lotus Garden web) is thangka of Rigdzin Thugtig, then it looks just like Rigdzin Dupa of LN. Maybe the two are somehow related.
