I would be very happy if anybody here could come up with suggestions about how to get some clarification on the practice of BON NGONDRO and maybe some resources ,books ,dvd's..etc...

I have receives teachings on Heartdrops of Dharmakaya(kunzang Nyingtig), Gyalwa Chagtri ,Tummo as is taught by the teachers of Shenten.I wouldnt be able to tell you what lineage i am in.
The name i was given when taking refuge with the bon teacher i riceived the ngondro from is Tashi Norbu.
But i think the transmission for Chagtri includes the transmission for the ngondro as is done in Shenten.
So i would have permission to practice that ngondro as well.
When Tenpa Rinpoche gave instructions on Chagtri he only gave us details about how to practice the four thoughts and guru yoga but he didnt gave any instructions for the rest...mandala,100 syl mantra,3 heart mantras because of the time constraints.He also talked in general terms about refuge and boddhicitta but he didnt show us how the actual practice is done.
But while writing this message i realised that i have received two ngondros.One in A khrid lineage as i mentioned at the beginning and one in ZZNG lineage since Chagtri is considered the practical application of ZZNG teachings.
