Karoṭa (करोट) or Karoṭatantra refers to one of the twenty Bhūtatantras, belonging to the Śāktāgama (or Śāktatantra) division of the Āgama tradition.

According to the Pratiṣṭhālakṣaṇasamuccaya of Vairocana, the Śāktatantras are divided into to four parts, the Karoṭa-tantra belonging to the Bhūta class.Source: Shodhganga: Iconographical representations of Śiva (shaktism)
