Hello, I was asked by a Lama friend to arrange for a Tseringma and 4 sisters thangka to be made in Longchen Nyingtig style. I have found a few variations depending on whether they are Kagyu vs Nyingma but I haven't found anything specific to Longchen Nyingtig. Is anyone familiar with these deities? Thanks.

Nogdrup, yes of course that is ideal, but when both the practitioner and painter do not have a copy of the text and it is an uncommon practice, we need to look elsewhere. It appears to be a predominately Kagyu practice but has forms in Nyingma, but is really uncommon which is why I asked.
