Two of his texts survive - the Bodhicharyavatara (the text that is displayed in this app) and the Shikshasamuccaya ("Compendium of Trainings"). Both texts are still used to the present day by many Tibetan Buddhists and especially the Bodhicharyavatara is one of the most cherished and most frequently taught texts in the Tibetan tradition.
