Source: archive.org: The Indian Buddhist Iconography

Jinajik (जिनजिक्) refers to the “principal mantra of the moha family (kula)”, according to Guhyasamāja.—[...] The Tathāgatas present in the Assembly requested the Lord Bodhicittavajra to define the Tathāgatamaṇḍala or the magic circle of the five Dhyāni Buddhas and in response to their request,—[...] then the Lord sat in another meditation (samādhi) and soon became vibrant with the sacred sounds of “Jinajik”, the principal mantra of the Moha family (kula). The sounds condensed themselves into the concrete form of Vairocana with the Dharmacakra-mudrā and was placed in his front in the East.
