Anukrośa (अनुक्रोश) refers to “anger” (i.e., holding together the book by means of the thread), according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, [while discussing how Vajrabodhi was converted by Siddhanātha]: “(There was a) Brahmin Bodhisattva in (the city) called the Moon * * * (?) with anger (sa-anukrośa), the great soul again and with force appointed him to authority. He disappeared and that instant (all his) transitory desires came to an end by (his) divine thought. I bow to that Nātha with devotion, the venerable Oṃkāranātha who is the churning of supreme power”.
