  Nyingma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Nyingma" literally means "ancient," and is often referred to as the "school of the ancient translations" or the "old school" because it founded on the first translations of Buddhist scriptures from Sanskrit into Tibetan, in the eighth century.
Nyingma followers maintain the earliest Vajrayana teachings (the other three schools are known as Sarma or "new translation" schools, having arisen from a second wave of translation).
The Nyingma tradition is unique among the four schools in that its supporters never held political power, and therefore it stood at a greater remove from the political machinations of Tibet.

 THDL: Nyingma Literature Collection
It should be noted that despite the rhetoric and polemics, it was clear that Sarma and Nyingma authors were in extensive dialog from the late tenth century onwards, and that Nyingma "treasure" texts are in many ways best understood as the Nyingma appropriation of new Indian materials against the background of their own received traditions.
He was the pivotal architect of the Nyingma narrative traditions concerning the Emperors, Padmasambhava and Avalokiteśvara, a major treasure finder and formulator of the treasure mythos, one of the defining authors of the "eight proclamation deities" (bka' brgyad) tradition of Mahāyoga, and an important literary figure in Atiyoga traditions.
Longchenpa, however, in the fourteenth century, is undoubtedly the greatest intellectual in the history of the Nyingma, and produced the defining systematization of Nyingma thought and practice in a series of powerful studies of Mahāyoga and Atiyoga.

 E-sangha, Buddhist Forum and Buddhism Forum -> Empowerments In Kama And Nyingma   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
So I think in the Nyingma, one may be given the "full" empowerments but they practice the sadhanas with samaya when they're ready through having completed at least one ngondro (or more sometimes, or sometimes less).
I think the Kagyu are somewhat closer to the Nyingma, but perhaps somewhere in the middle of the spectrum, in that we are usually required to get the specific empowerment of a HYT yidam before commencing the practice, but there are some sadhanas where this is not the case......
And for the "Nyingma" practices which are popular in Jamgon Kongtrul's tradition, such as Kyergangpa's Secret Hayagriva, or Chogling Purpa, the empowerments are fairly unelaborate.

 The Nyingma Tradition

Although Dzogchen is the unique feature of Nyingma practice, even among the lay followers the practice of reciting Guru Rinpochey's prayers, observing the 10th and 25th of every lunar month as a day for feast offerings, and even retiring into retreat for three years and three months individually or in company are common.
