The Origin of Sages (Dag yig mkhas pa'i 'byung gnas, Merged γarqu-yin oron) [hereafter Dag-Yig] by Changkya (lCang-skya Qutuγtu Rol-pa'i-rdo-rje, 1717-1786) was written as the translation guide for the Mongolian Tanjur in 1742. The Dag-Yig was intended as a guide for translating Buddhist technical terms into Mongolian and contains an authoritative bilingual orthography (Tibetan and Mongolian), as well as an "abridged exegesis" of the knowledge system of Buddhism.
