Cakrasaṃvaratantra (चक्रसंवरतन्त्र).—The Chakrasaṃvara Tantra is one of the major tantras in the division of what is now called “Mother Tantras” (ma rgyud) or Yoginī Tantras, within the broader category of highest yoga tantra. The socalled root tantra is said to be an appendix (uttaratantra) of a mythic root text that was an enormous work of one hundred thousand or even three hundred thousand verses, which, if true, makes the extant tantra a tiny fraction of the original.
