Piśācakī (पिशाचकी) refers to one of the eight hell-guardians (narakapāla) of the Kāyacakra, according to the 10th century Ḍākārṇava chapter 15. Accordingly, the kāyacakra refers to one of the four divisions of the nirmāṇa-puṭa (‘emanation layer’), situated in the Herukamaṇḍala. Piśācakī is associated with the charnel ground (śmaśāna) named Udbandhaka and with the tree (vṛkṣa) named Piśāca.
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.
