The Denkarma (Tib. ལྡན་དཀར་མ་, Wyl. ldan dkar ma) or Lhenkarma (Tib. ལྷན་དཀར་མ་, Wyl. lhan dkar ma) is a catalogue compiled by Kawa Paltsek and Namkhé Nyingpo in the early ninth century (possibly in 812, but with texts being added to the list at least until 830) listing all the texts that had been translated into Tibetan by that time. It is included in the Tengyur.
