The Chimphu Catalogue (Tib. དཀར་ཆག་བསམ་ཡས་མཆིམསཕུ་མ་, Wyl. dkar chag bsam yas mchimsphu ma) is a catalogue listing texts that had been translated into Tibetan during the time of the Tibetan empire. It is the second of three catalogues, the other being the Denkarma and the Pangtangma Catalogue, and is missing at present. It is considered to have been written at the court of Chimphu during the reign of king Senalek Jingyön.
