Kramayogata (क्रमयोगत) [=Kramayoga?] refers to “one’s association with the Krama”, 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, “Intent on (the practice of) the deposition (of mantra) (nyāsa), meditation, and the repetition (of mantra), he is successful by virtue of (his) association (yoga) with the Krama [i.e., kramayogata]. By the practice of the offering of bali to the sacred seats, (the goddess) Kuṇḍalinī (Taraṅginī) is full (and satisfied). One should worship (in this way) if one wishes the most excellent accomplishment. Already knowing the purification of the mantras, one should then begin to practice Yoga”.
