Has this been fully translated into English yet?

Good Chokgyur Lingpa quote from the PDF:

"the gods ceremonially bathe the feet of the great god Viṣṇu"

Not that I am aware of. Unfortunately no one has ever translated any of Chokgyur Lingpa's biographies or autobiographies either. Rather a shame i feel.

There is Ogyan Tobgyal Rinpoche's biography of Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa. Doesn't that count?

OTR's book gives one a hint of the terton's life, but it's barely a sketch. Tulku Urgyen also recounts a few stories in Blazing Splendor. But neither provides anything near a full picture; especially when considering that the official biography included in the Chokling Tersar is over 600 pages long. And then there are numerous other texts in the Tersar as well including Chokgyur Lingpa's autobiography, his account of his trip to central Tibet, another in which he describes his various visions and journeys to Sangdok Palri, etc. … So as far as i am concerned his story remains untold.

Well, it would be great to get more translated, in that case. Maybe ask Erik Pema Kunsang or some of those other great Chokling Tersar related translators. I once emailed Erik for a translation of a text I'd heard he'd done but not published and he emailed it straight back to me. Some translators are very generous with their work.

This book: http://www.amazon.com/Zangdok-Palri-Lotus-Palace-Rinpoche/dp/6169128909,
which BTW is incredible, contains a long introduction by Tulku Thondup that includes a summary of the text you are interested in,
and a lot of beautiful pictures of a thangka of Zangdok Palri painted according to Chokgyur Lingpa's vision, under the direction of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
You can read a sample of the book, which includes some of the summary and the pictures, here:

Yes, I understand. My local university library has it, so I didn't have to buy it. I think I will at some point though, it's actually quite reasonably priced for what it is, and it will definitely be a collector's item.
