Kangyur (བཀའ་འགྱུར་, Wyl. bka' 'gyur) literally the 'translated words' of the Buddha. The Kangyur is a collection of the Buddha's own teachings.

The words of the Buddha are the sutras and the tantras.

Tengyur is books collection that gathers the treatises composed by the great Indian masters of the first millennium.

Kangyur's Divisions.

Vinaya (འདུལ་བ་, 'dul ba)
- Discipline.

Prajñāpāramitā (ཤེར་ཕྱིན་, sher phyin)
- Perfection of Wisdom.

Buddhāvataṃsaka (ཕལ་ཆེན་, phal chen)
- The Sūtra of the Ornament of the Buddhas.

Ratnakūṭa (དཀོན་བརྩེགས་, dkon brtsegs)
- Heap of Jewels.

Sūtra (མདོ་, mdo)
- General Sūtra Section.

Tantra (རྒྱུད་, rgyud)
- Tantra collection.
- Old Tantras.

Blog's author's Comments.

This blog's author (Andrzej Wysocki) plans to purchase Kangyur & Tengyur as soon as possible.

Bought the 'Vinaya' (complete edition) & the 'Diamond Sutra' (with comments), a part of 'Prajñāpāramitā' books already.

Bought a book about the 'Heart Sutra with Supplementary Amitabha Sutra' too. i am happy for the Heart Sutra with the supplementary Amitabha Sutra being together, for a possible case of death separating a Buddhist Woman i Love & myself in this life - this is related with Phowa, the conscious dying practice.

Bought a book of the Prajñāpāramitā (Perfection of Wisdom), as well. Hopefully my Buddhist Wisdom will benefit from that.

i am happy for meaningful money spending at last as well.

This blog's author plans to accept as many vows as possible on the Yogi way, but not before i read, think & discuss this with the Buddhist Woman i Love - her opinion matters very much anyway.
