Atyadbhuta (अत्यद्भुत) refers to the “marvelous (sun of true devotion)”, according to Sāhib Kaul’s Śārikāstrotra.—Accordingly, “[...] When the marvelous (atyadbhuta) sun of true devotion to you rises, the lotus of my heart is inflamed through true emotion. In it always resides, out of respect, the good fortune of liberation that is coveted by all. Having attained the strength of true intelligence through Jñānasvāmin, I know what there is to know and everywhere contemplate my own self. I, Sāhib Kaula, have composed this hymn to the lineage deity Śārikā, which contains the construction of her Mantra. [...]”.

Atyadbhuta (अत्यद्भुत) is the name of an Uṣṇīṣa king [i.e., Uṣṇīṣarāja] mentioned as attending the teachings in the 6th century Mañjuśrīmūlakalpa: one of the largest Kriyā Tantras devoted to Mañjuśrī (the Bodhisattva of wisdom) representing an encyclopedia of knowledge primarily concerned with ritualistic elements in Buddhism. The teachings in this text originate from Mañjuśrī and were taught to and by Buddha Śākyamuni in the presence of a large audience (including Atyadbhuta).
Tibetan Buddhism includes schools such as Nyingma, Kadampa, Kagyu and Gelug. Their primary canon of literature is divided in two broad categories: The Kangyur, which consists of Buddha’s words, and the Tengyur, which includes commentaries from various sources. Esotericism and tantra techniques (vajrayāna) are collected indepently.
