Quick Reference

(Skt.). The ‘Tantra of the Secret Assembly’, an important early anuttara-yoga-tantra in eighteen chapters deriving in part from earlier material such as that found in the Sarva-tathāgata-tattva-saṃgraha but with important innovations such as the use of overt sexual symbolism and practices. This text gave rise to a rich exegetical tradition and paved the way for further developments in tantric literature. As well as surviving in Sanskrit manuscripts, it was also translated into Tibetan and Chinese.
