Try this & this and then that, that & that

The usual advice on esoteric practices, seek a worthy teacher...

Have a look at Stephen Hodge's translation of the Mahavairocana Tantra.
DGA's PhD dissertation, a history of "mindfulness," is available here:

I hav a clarification. In some of the versions give Parishodhana instead of varsuddhani

I've seen it both ways, and I don't know if there is any "rightness" of one way verses another way.

Parishodhana and varsuddhani are too different from each other for it to be a 'tibetan pronounciation' or transliteration problem. There are likely simply two versions in circulation and the correct one for you is the one your teacher taught you.
