Words of my Perfect Teacher - Patrul Rinpoche (often referred to in Tibetan forums as WOMPT for short)
The Jewel Ornament of Liberation - Gampopa

Those two are my daily practice source texts, that which guides me so to speak.  WOMPT is a must have for any Nyingmapa. It is the equivalent of a how-to text basically for the student that is preparing in the basics in Vajrayana.  The Jewel Ornament is a basic but thorough text very much referred to by Nyingma and Kagyu traditions.  Yeshe Nyingpo (my sangha) uses this last text. 

The lineage I've taken safe direction in is the Dudjom Tersar Rinpoche-Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche-Kunzang Dorje Rinpoche, Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche, with my teacher Dawa Chhodak Rinpoche, and hopefully someday Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche.  I know at least two other Nyingmapas in the forum share the Dudjom/Dilgo lineage.  I as well am interested in learning about the other Tibetan traditions.

WOMPT and Jewel Ornament are authentic Dharma. For more of a general ed. type survey course I'd recommend "Indestructible Truth" by Reginald A. Ray. He's an academic, a practitioner and a good writer to boot.
Warning: I'm enough of a fundamentalist Tibet style Buddhist to believe that for the last 1,000 years Tibet has produced a handful of enlightened masters in every generation. I do not ask that YOU believe it, but it will greatly simplify conversations if you understand that about me. Thanks.
