Based on the Great Volume of Precise Understanding bye brag tu rtogs par byed pa chen mo- Mahavyutpatti drawn up by Tibetan translator in the ninth century at the instigation of the Tibetan Dharma-king Tri Ralpa-Chen and supplemented from the collected works of various Tibetan lamas, this Tibetan-English Dictionary of Buddhist terminology contains 6000 main entries and over 8000 sub-entries.

Sanskrit equivalents of terms are given wherever possible in romanised transliterated form. The English definitions largely reflect the mode of oral translation evolved in the Buddhist Philosophy classes at the Library of Tibetan Works & Achieves.
