OP is talking about a specific teaching of Vimalamitra that's found in the Vima Nyingtik.

Lopon Malcolm had a version of that translated before, but not for public circulation.

Agree , but the contents / index can be enumerated maybe ?
In Bön we don´t have this protective secrecy so much, therefore my way of approaching here.

Understand, but this isn’t Bon, different rules apply.

Thread locked as there is nothing more to be said and it would probably go down the old Bön vs Buddhadharma route. If somebody has something to post in this thread that is of value to the OP (where they can get the text for e.g.) then ask one of the mods.
“Observing samaya involves to remain inseparable from the union of wisdom and compassion at all times, to sustain mindfulness, and to put into practice the guru’s instructions”. Garchen Rinpoche

Formerly known as Miroku.
