Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana or tantric Buddhism)
Ākāśagañja (आकाशगञ्ज) is the (Mortal) Bodhisattva associated with by Buddha Viśvabhū: one of the seven mortal Buddhas (mānuṣī) whose names appear last in the list of thirty-two Buddhas in Mahāyāna Buddhism.—The last seven Tathāgatas are well-known, and are designated by the Mahāyānist as Mānuṣī or “Mortal Buddhas”. When represented, the last seven Mortal Buddhas appear all alike; they are of one colour and one form, usually sitting cross-legged,with the right hand disposed in the Bhūmisparśa-mudrā (earth-touching attitute), which is the mudrā peculiar to Akṣobhya. [...] In paintings, the Mortal Buddhas [viz., Viśvabhū and Ākāśagañja] have usually a yellow or golden complexion. [...] Sometimes they are represented as standing, in which case the appear under a distinguishing Bodhi Tree and with a distinguishing mudrā.
Ākāśagañja is brought into existence by the (Mortal) Buddha Viśvabhū with his (Mortal) Buddhaśakti named Viśvadharā.

Their primary canon of literature is divided in two broad categories: The Kangyur, which consists of Buddha’s words, and the Tengyur, which includes commentaries from various sources.
