Guhyagarbha or Guhyagarbhatantra (rGyud gsang-ba’i snyin-po) is the most all-embracing of the eighteen mahayoga-tantras, focusing specifically on the mandala of the forty-two peaceful deities and the fifty-eight wrathful deities. There are three distinct versions of the Guhyagarbha-tantra, respectively in 82, 46 and 22 chapters, and it is the last of these that is most widely studied. All of these versions are included within the general cycle of the Tantra of the Magical Net (Mayajalatantra).
Tibetan Buddhism includes schools such as Nyingma, Kadampa, Kagyu and Gelug. 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. Esotericism and tantra techniques (vajrayāna) are collected indepently.
