In which context and by whom?

I know a few translators, and only one of them really uses that title. In some translation circles one person who uses it a lot is an unfortunate object of mockery as a result. I don't know any Nyingma or Kagyu Lamas who use it in Tibetan, most seem to use the more colloquial "Ke gyur".

In general, or in a specific context? I've often seen drub or drup (Wyl. sgrub or grub), which is literally "accomplishment." You see this in words like drubthab ("sadhana; means of accomplishment"), drubkhang ("retreat center; house of accomplishment"), khedrub ("siddha-scholar; learnéd and accomplished"), drubchen ("great accomplishment;" group continuous retreat practice), etc., etc.

I've seen sgrub pa, nyams su len pa and sgom pa all translated as to practice. All have slightly different connotations.

རང་བཞིན་ rang bzhin. Literally own face? Does the bzhin here mean face or something else?

I find this a tough one because it is translated as inherent existence and also as the natural state. Is this the same inherent existence the Gelugs very much enjoy smashing to pieces?

Also Chogyal Namkhai Norbu has said that "basically,practicing means living without getting distracted." This means our daily behavior and conduct or practice.
