What Is Nyingma Gyubum? From my understanding it contains a compilation of Nyingma texts.

Excellent! Thank you Magnus.

I was also wondering if Longchenpa's Seven Treasuries are his principle or only works or if he is responsible for other texts or collections?

Is there such a book as "Center of the Sunlit Sky" presenting the intricacies of madhyamaka for the Nyingma lineage?

Do Nyingma's specifically follow Bhavavivika's works?

Who do Nyingma's look to for their commentary on lojong? And on pramana?

I don't know if there is a specifically Nyingma approach to the seven points of mind training, but this book is very, very good:

Enlightened Courage: An Explanation of the Seven-Point Mind Training by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (http://www.snowlionpub.com/html/product_8736.html)

Does anyone know where the most comprehensive treatment of the six perfections can be found in the Nyingma tradition?
