This text is near or at the top of my favorite Mahayana shastras.

The new translation by Ken Holmes (edited by Jinpa) is very fine, with the title Ornament of Precious Liberation. This version also has a Preface by the 17th Karmapa.

It is not a matter of achieving Bodhi or attaining Buddhahood. Rather, you yourself become aware that your own mind has always been fully enlightened.

Only having dipped into Guenther's version I cannot compare it to the three I have now.

For comparing translations all three are useful, but I guess my overall preference is the Khenpo's version from 1998?. It has a full Table of Contents, Glossary, a detailed outline, big index and several appendices giving stories that are only mentioned in the root text. Second is Holmes' Gems of Dharma, some of his footnotes are profound. Last is the new one from Wisdom, based on Holmes (but ignoring most of his notes) and edited by Jinpa.
