This chapter describes the Tibetan canonical collections of Buddhist scriptures. These works occupy a vital position in the religious literature of Tibet and Buddhist literature in Tibetan translation, and also include a small number of original works authored by Tibetans. The Tibetan Tripiţaka is divided into the Kanjur (“translation of the word”), which comprises teachings said to have been propagated by Buddha Śākyamuni (buddhavacana), and the Tanjur (“translations of commentaries”), which features commentarial literature on Buddhist sutras and tantras and scriptures on rituals, hymns, and technical compositions. The remainder of the chapter provides critical analyses of the short Sukhāvatīvyūha-sūtra by examining eight Kanjurs, including the Phug-brag and Orgyangling.

Keywords:   Buddhist scriptures, Tibetan translation, Tibetan Tripiţaka, Buddha Śākyamuni, Tanjur, Phug-brag, Orgyangling
