Īrṣyārati (ईर्ष्यारति) is the name of a mantra uttered by Bodhicittavajra while creating the Tathāgatamaṇḍala (the circle of the five Dhyāni Buddhas), according to Guhyasamāja.—[...] Then the Lord sat in a series of special samādhis, five in number, and became resonant with five different mantras. The vibrations in like manner were condensed in the form of five goddesses as female counterparts of the five Tathāgatas already named and were placed in their appropriate positions. [...] Thereafter he became vibrant with the sound “Īrṣyārati” which took the shape of a goddess and was placed in the southern direction as the queen of Ratnasambhava.
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.

[Sanskrit to German]
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). 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.
