Parṇabhṛṣṭakā (पर्णभृष्टका) probably refers to “baked leaves”, as mentioned in Chapter 12 (“offering food”) of the Susiddhikara-sūtra. Accordingly, “when chanting the mantras of female deities, you should offer delicacies such as soup with boiled rice, pulse soup, sweet liquids, and parṇabhṛṣṭakā, [that is,] baked leaves, as well as various fruits: to all female deities you should offer these dishes”.
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.
