I am looking for a public domain copy of the Tibetan book of the dead (in original Tibetan script, not a translation) online in text format (i.e. not a PDF). This lead me to the main question...

My question is, I have seen the large volumes of the Kangyur and Tengyur, but then independently there is this book Bardo Thodol, The Tibetan Book of the Dead. They say it is from Nyingma literature. Being a novice, I am trying to understand the relation between Nyingma and Kangyur/Tengyur. And thus how the Tibetan Book of the Dead fits in. Wondering if one could outline the relations between them.
