I know emanations involved, but can you say a bit about how it's arranged, i.e. if one of them is the central deity and how they're all practiced in the one sadhana? Not sure if this would be against samaya to talk about it openly, but if you deem it to be, please feel free to PM me.
It is against samaya to talk specifics. But I think it is okay to speak in generalities. It is all one sadhana with sections drawn from various GR sadhanas from great tertons.
There is a choice of two forms of GR you want to go with--you just omit the alternative version of the lha kye
(visualization description section) you don't want to do.
Additonally, there are many other forms in the mandala.
The daily practice version is based on the Sangwa dupa (Sangdu) of Guru Chowang.
Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche was unable to retrieve a predicted sa ter (earth treasure) Guru Rinpoche practice, so he put this together instead. Of course, he did discover the Tso Kye Thukthig as a gong ter (mind treasure.)
