Prajñādhṛk (प्रज्ञाधृक्) refers to the “principal mantra of the samaya family (kula)”, according to Guhyasamāja.—[...] The Tathāgatas present in the Assembly requested the Lord Bodhicittavajra to define the Tathāgatamaṇḍala or the magic circle of the five Dhyāni Buddhas and in response to their request,—[...] Next, the Lord assumed another Samādhi and soon became resonant with the sacred sound of “Prajñādhṛk”, the principal Mantra of the Samaya family (kula). The vibrations after condensation gradually assumed the shape of Amoghasiddhi with his characteristic symbol of abhaya (assurance), and was placed by the Lord in the north.
