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.

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

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.
