In this way, O fair-faced one, in the future [i.e., bhaviṣyat], in (the course of) the a eons, great (kalpa) and small (manvantara), the rite (karman) of initiation will be of three types. The rite of initiation in the Kula tradition (āmnāya) will take place during (the various) ages (yuga) and (varies) according to the nature of (each) age, and (will be imparted) through the line (krama) of teachers and disciples by means of insights (vijñāna) (outwardly apparent) as the signs of attainment (pratyaya)”.
