(87) This wise man here composed the Tantra named the illustrious “forehead mark of Śāradā” (Śāradātilaka), taking the complete essence from all the Āgamas [and making the number of] chapters [the same as] the number of constituents (tattva) [i.e. twenty-five], with the object of long giving joy to learned [people]”.
