Texts by the great Indian master Āryaśūra, known to Tibetans as Lobpon Pawo (slob dpon dpa' bo), author of the famous Garland of Birth Stories (Jātakamālā)
- Short Praise of the Buddha's Deeds attributed to Āryaśūra | Praise
Although not to be found in the Tengyur, this short praise of Buddha Śākyamuni's deeds is commonly attributed to the Indian master Āryaśūra and became very popular in Tibet.
- Verses on the Buddha's Previous Lives attributed to Āryaśūra | Jātaka
This prayer for the accomplishment of the transcendent perfections was adapted from the summarizing verses that appear at the conclusion of each chapter in Jātakamālāṭīkā, Dharmakīrti's extensive commentary on Āryaśūra's famous Jātakamālā, or Garland of Birth Stories. (This covers the first four transcendent perfections only; additional verses for the remaining perfections and birth stories were composed by the Third Karmapa, Rangjung Dorje).
