Treasure text

Texts planted by Indian or Tibetan masters, either in a physical location, such as inside a pillar of a temple, or in the minds of disciples and hidden there for safekeeping during times that were not conducive for their practice. Often referred to by the transliterated Tibetan term "terma."

Tibetan: གཏེར་མ། gter-ma

J. Hopkins: [nying-ma] buried texts.
