Bodhavya (बोधव्य) refers to “that which one should know” 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 describing Śrīpāda (who is in the ‘threefold’ House of the three lineages) as the supreme form of the teacher]—“Listen to the supreme and main secret in the Śrīśāsana, that is, the teacher. There is no liberation without a teacher. (Without him) how can the (bondage of the) world of transmigration be severed? [...] If one desires eternal liberation, one should know (bodhavya) (him) to be beside (one’s own) venerable teacher. [...]”.
