If you mean sacred texts then they are:

-Lotus of the Good Law
-Tibetan Book of the Dead

The three "baskets" (Tipitaka) are: The Vinaya Pitaka (discipline basket) the Sutta Pitaka (teaching basket) Abidhamma Pitaka (metaphysical basket) Also important to remember that there are two sects of Buddhism: Mahayana and Vajrayana
Yes, the main one is the Tipitaka.
