There are several tantras with that name, here is a very short version: https://lhaseylotsawa.org/library/seed- ... ll-buddhas . Never heard of any translation of any commentary.

I believe EPK translated it - the Garab Dorje commentary is in the Vima Nyingthig. There's also a reading method by Kongrul which has been translated as a Ranjung Yeshe pamphlet. I've been unable to track either down, though - if anyone does, please let me know.

There is a commentary by Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche on this tantra but I doubt that it's available in print.

Do they have physical copies at KNSL? They have his commentaries on the lotus essence tantra in pamphlet form

Sure he did, the short one. But there is also a very long one.

I mean the commentary, not the tantra. I emailed him to ask. Plenty of translations exist of the tantra.

Ok, if you are in contact with him ask him for the reading method then.
