Oh, well okay. I assumed that since the Shangpa don't have Gampopa in their lineage, they wouldn't regularly study his text. Has Niguma's Lam Rim been translated?conebeckham wrote:Most "Shangpa Kagyu" exist within the institution of the Karma Kagyu, I think......and we certainly are exposed to the Jewel Ornament.
There's also a Lam Rim written by Taranatha, which is harder to find in translation but also valuable to study. I'd say most non-Tibetan speaking "Shangpas" are more familiar with the Jewel Ornament than with Taranatha's Lam Rim. There's also Niguma's Lam Rim, but it's more "advanced."
