Abhayākaragupta (अभयाकरगुप्त) (11th century AD) was a Buddhist monk, scholar and tantric master (vajrācārya) and the abbot of Vikramaśīla. He was born in the city of Gaur, West Bengal, in Eastern India, and is thought to have flourished in the late 11th-early 12th century CE, and died in 1125.

Abhayākaragupta’s magmum opus, the Vajravāli, is a “grand synthesis of tantric liturgy” which developed a single harmonized tantric ritual system which could be applied to all Tantric Buddhist mandalas.
