... commentary called Sphutartha, the commentary on Sancaya, called Subodhini,
and the Pra- jnaparamita-blmvana, etc.170 From the Blue Annals we learn that
the Sphutdrtha was a short comment on the Abhisamayd- lankara, and the

From the Durga cult adoring violence, emerged two other creeds, the Tantrika
and Mantrika. Both are in essence the same except for one difference that in the
Tantrika, rituals are the foremost but in the Mantrika, mantras or chantings are
given emphasis. As against Buddhism which practised absolute continence or
unfaltering celibacy, sublimation of sexual power into spiritual activities, the
Tantrika concentrated entirely on sex and ritualistic sexual enjoyment as the
highest attainment.

Although a tantrika — one who studies Tantra — may feel an affinity for a
particular enlightened being he or she would wish to emulate, the selection of
yidam is usually based on the recommendation of the tantrika's teacher. To come
to full realization on this path, the tantrika must maintain an altruistic outlook and
commit to doing whatever the teacher lays out for him or her as the practice and
methods necessary to reach that same enlightenment expression. Tantra,
therefore, is a path ...

Yet there seems to be no doubt that the ordination Dipamkara received under
him was quite different from the Tantrika form of initiation. It was, in other words,
distinctly prabrajya rather than an abhiseka, which Dipamkara previously had
under Rahulagupta of the Black Mountain. Why did Dipamkara go in for the purer
form of the Buddhist ordination in spite of his early Tantrika initiation ? We may
not find today an exact answer to this. This much is sure, however, that the

It is "assuredly a Western creation," with a fairly recent history.83 However, we do
find the adjective tantrika, which has been used sometimes as a counterpart and
contrast to the adjective vaidika (Vedic, pertaining to the Vedas). One of the
passages most often cited by modern scholars is a brief one in Kulluka Bhatta's
commentary on the Laws of Manu, "revelation [sruti] is twofold, vaidika and
tantrika."84 In other words, revealed scripture can be classified into that which

The Tantrika chakra system is completer than the Waidika chakra system. The
Tantrika system is based on the Tantras which are extant. It may not be quite
complete, as a very large number of Tantras are lost. But from the viewpoint of
spiritual practice, it is complete. Now, most of the layayogis have followed the
Tantrika system. Many great layayoga masters have adopted it, and the Tantrika
gurus teach it to their disciples directly and thoroughly. Tantrika Nadi-system
Nadis constitute ...
