  The Six Yogas of Naropa: Tsongkhapa's Commentary
The six practices-inner heat, illsory bosy, clear light, consciousness transference, forceful projection and bardo yoga-gradually came to prevade thousands of monastaries, nunneries, and hermitages throughout Central Asia over the past five and a half centuries.
Naropa (or, in a less Tibetanized form, Naro) was an Indian Buddhist sage, renowned in Tibet as one of the teachers of Marpa the Translator (born 1012), whose several disciples stand at the heads of many teaching lineages, and the Monastic Orders with which they or their own disciples are associated.
The "Six Doctrines/Yogas/Teachings of Naropa" are a set of advanced Tantric techniques, which Marpa is said to have received from Naropa; although there is some dispute over whether this synthesis was Naropa's or he himself had derived it from his teacher, Tilopa.

  The Tibetan Book of the Dead: The Art of Dying
The Six Doctrines are comprised of the yogas of mystic heat (tum-mo, gtum mo), radiant clear light (ö-sel, Îod gsal), illusory body (gyu-lu, sgyu lus), dream state (mi-lam, rmi lam), intermediate state (bardo), and transference of consciousness (phowa, Îpho ba).
Directly connected with the yoga of transference is the esoteric method of forceful projection or drong-juk, in which a practitioner projects his or her own consciousness into a corpse of either a dead human being or animal.
The Six Doctrines (or Yogas) of Niguma (Nigu Chö Druk, ni gu chos drug) were transmitted in a vision directly through the female yogini Sukha Siddhi to the Tibetan poet and scholar-practitioner Khyung-po Nenjor, founder of the obscure Shang-pa Kagyu sect or "Transmission of the Oral Teaching of Shang Valley" (shangs pa bkaâ brgyud).
