Khajang (Tib. ཁ་བྱང་, Wyl. kha byang) is the authorization code that gives the locations of the termas allotted to a specific tertön, and instructions on how and when he has to reveal them. It is sometimes translated as prophetic guide. A synonymous term is terma key (Wyl. gter gyi lde’u mig). The tertön may come across his khajang unexpectedly, or he may discover it according to detailed instructions. Another related term is jangbu (Wyl. byang bu), which can refer either to the authorization code or to the terma itself.[1]
