Parādevīvidyā (परादेवीविद्या) refers to the “Vidyā of the goddess Parā”, according to the Ṭīkā (commentary) on the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “[...] In this way, the adept should worship the lineage which is the past time of the Lineage of the Child within the Śiva principle, in the Foundation of Birth (in the genitals), which is the place called Kuṇḍalī. (It is the lineage of) Mitrīśanātha who has been empowered by the Vidyā of the goddess Parā (parādevīvidyā). (This is) the relationship with (the Siddha) who belongs to the Lineage of the Child. Thus the conventions of the Lineage of the Child have been declared and the three lineages have been explained. [...]”.
