Kangyur or Translations of Words
The term Kangyur (Tib. bka' 'gyur) means literally "Word Translation. At the same time, it should be noted that here we are talking about the Words or instructions of a certain high-ranking person, an enlightened person or a saint. In the context of Buddhism, this collection refers, therefore, to the words or instructions of the Buddha, the Enlightened One. There is another version of such a collection, which is distributed in the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. This variant is called Kama, which can be translated literally as "Words". However, in this work, the main collection under consideration is the canonical translation, which is called Kangyur. The texts of the collection presented here occupy an important place in the life of the practitioner, helping him to understand the essence of the state that he is trying to achieve while performing practices, rituals, and studying texts that deal with the view, behavior, and meditation.
