Anuttara-yoga tantra [RY]

highest yoga tantra [RY]

The highest division of tantra according to the New Translation (Tib. gsar ma) schools. Further divided into:

  • Father Tantras (those emphasising method)
  • Mother Tantras (those emphasizing wisdom)
  • Non-Dual Tantras.

These three subdivisions roughly equate to the Maha-, Anu-, and Ati-Yoga tantras in the Inner Tantra division of the Nyingma schema.
