thank you Trime Pema). i guess your answer is generally about Dudjom Tersar ngöndro though, while i am asking about Thröma Nakmo ngöndro specifically.
To my knowledge, all the information about Troma is restricted until you complete ngondro and are then eligible for empowerment.
Your question seems to be regarding why the Troma ngondro is restricted, which is because it requires one to have already done the Dudjom Tersar ngondro, which is also part of the Troma cycle.
So, to answer your question, which I understood as: "if the Troma ngondro is restricted, but this is the starting point of the path, then how would one begin acquainting oneself with Troma before receiving the full teachings from a lama?" Your question presupposes the Troma ngondro is the starting point of the Troma path, which it is really not. The starting point of any Dudjom Tersar practices is the Dudjom Tersar ngondro. After completing the general ngondro there are then additional ngondros in each of the cycles that you would then be told to practice by your Lama. One of those cycles is Troma. That's why the answer to how to begin to become acquainted with Dudjom Troma is to do the concise ngondro of Dudjom Tersar, which is readily available without transmission and you can get the lung from almost any nyingma lama or even online via webcast.
