Quick question - while this is I guess technically a Gelug text,
what's the Kagyu take on Tsongkhapa's commentary?
I don't know about a Kagyu take, but I recall recognizing a few differences in emphasis or even interpretation between Je Tsongkhapa and Kagyu authors on the subject. The best English translation of Kagyu teachings on the six dharmas is The Quintessence of Nectar: Instructions for the Practice of the Six Dharmas of Naropā by Shamarpa Chokyi Wangchuck, translated by Peter Alan Roberts in Mahāmudrā and Related Instructions: Core Teachings of the Kagyu Schools
. There are also two older English translations. One is The Epitome of an Introduction to the Six Yogas of Naropa by Dakpo Tashi Namgyal, translated by Garma C.C. Chang (which is and English translation of a Chinese translation of the Tibetan original), published under a couple of different titles including Teachings and Practice of Tibetan Tantra
. The other is The Yoga of the Six Doctrines by Padma Karpo, translated by Lama Kazi Dawa Samdup, published in Tibetan Yoga and Secret Doctrines
