Anuvartinī (अनुवर्तिनी) refers to “one who resides at”, 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, “The New Moon (amā) is the seventeenth (lunar) energy (kalā). She is the primordial womb (bhagādyā), located in the middle of the womb. The secret one of the womb who contains the womb, she has risen from within the middle of the womb. Fashioned with sixteen parts, she resides at the End of the Sixteen [i.e., ṣoḍaśānta-anuvartinī]”.

Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
