Jñānājñā (ज्ञानाज्ञा) refers to the “command of knowledge”, 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 the visualization of Koṅkaṇā: “She is the most excellent of the supreme, Parā, the goddess of the Kaula of the Command of Knowledge (jñānājñā-kaula). (She is) the wish-granting gem of sovereign power (śrī). (Her) weapons are a bow and wheel; she has a sword and an axe, and holds a goad and a noose. She is the unfailing Koṅkaṇā, the Kaula Weapon (who holds a) bow, arrow, club, thunderbolt, and javelin. (She has big) fang-like teeth. [...]”.
