Jitakrodhad (जितक्रोधद्) refers to one who is “free of anger”, according to the second recension of the Yogakhaṇḍa of the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, as the Goddess (i.e., Khageśī) said to the God (i.e., Bhairava), “[...] I will tell (you) how Yoginīs and Siddhas behave—(a teaching) that is never easy to acquire.[...] Worship is offered (by means of these things) to the oral scripture (that the god and goddess transmit) to one another. (The latter) is the arising of the transmission of the Command and the essential meaning of scripture, which is (the teaching concerning) the group of six (parts that constitute the liturgy). It is very tough and frightening (raudra) with its (secret) terminology, conventions and rituals. Tranquil, forbearing, free of anger [i.e., jitakrodha], the eater of food, a beggar of food and conqueror of the senses—as long as one is not like this, how can one (achieve) accomplishment in the Kula?”.
