Uktavat (उक्तवत्) refers to “having taught (a visualization)”, according to the 10th-century Ḍākārṇava-tantra: one of the last Tibetan Tantric scriptures belonging to the Buddhist Saṃvara tradition consisting of 51 chapters.—Accordingly, “First, having found a proper place in a lonely spot or [other spots] such as a mountain, he should make [that place] a charnel ground. There [he should honor] with a bali offering the protector [deities] of that land. A Yogin should offer water for a respectful reception and so on after a sipping water for purification and others. Employing an image, the Blessed One taught a visualization (bhāvana-uktavat) by [use of] a cloth [painting] and other [devices]. [...]”.
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
