Anyone know of a Yeshe Tsogyal guru yoga practice? (i.e. receiving blessings/empowerments from the guru as Yeshe Tsogyal)

I don't recall one. However, you can take use the 7 branch prayer from any YT sadhana (such as the Khandro Thukthig, which is very Ati).

I actually feel, given the roles of the Samayasattva and the Jñanasattva in tantric practices, that whilst Yeshe Tsogyal is most often used as the most suitable form of Samayasattva, when you look at what attributes are most suitable for the Jñanasattva, it is obviously Guru Rinpoche. Thus the predominance of GR as Guru.

But there are probably exceptions; the Choling Tersar Green Tara comes to mind... probably others too.

discovery is yours alone.

There is actually a Yeshe Tsogyal Guru Yoga. However it's structured like a deity yoga sadhana. It may have been a variation on Yumka. I don't know where I put the text. Khenpo Tsewang gave this to his Palyul students in Maryland many years ago now.

Thank you all for your input. Yes, I'm sure there must be several guru yogas of YT. . . I'm surprised they are not more widely known.
