Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Samāgata (समागत) refers to “having attended (someone’s marriage)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.55 (“Śiva returns to Kailāsa”).—Accordingly, after Pārvatī spoke to Śiva: “On hearing her words as pleasing as the steady flow of nectar, Śiva rejoiced much, eagerly devoted to the way of the world. Getting every requisite thing ready, he fed the gods including Viṣṇu and others with various pleasant things. He fed all the others who had attended (svavivāha-samāgata) His marriage with juicy cooked food of various sorts. [...]”.

Samāgata (समागत) refers to the “assembling (of Devas, Bodhisattvas, Nāgas, etc.)”, according to the Vajratuṇḍasamayakalparāja, an ancient Buddhist ritual manual on agriculture from the 5th-century (or earlier), containing various instructions for the Sangha to provide agriculture-related services to laypeople including rain-making, weather control and crop protection.—Accordingly, “Now the Bhagavān was residing in the abode of Brahmā. Many Deva multitudes assembled (samāgata) with a great assembly, multitudes of Bodhisattvas assembled (samāgata); Śakra, the Lord of the Devas, Brahmā, Viṣṇu and Maheśvara, Nāga Lords of great supernatural power, they all assembled (samāgata).

Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana or tantric Buddhism)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): (Tibetan Buddhism)
Samāgata (समागत) refers to “having entered” (into Yoganidrā), according to the Ciñcinīmatasārasamuccaya.—In the Amanaska, the term yoganidrā is a synonym for the no-mind state. [...] In contrast to the paucity of its occurrences in Yoga texts, yoganidrā is well attested in epic, Tantric and Pauranic literature that predates the Amanaska. [...] Examples can be found in Śaiva and Buddhist Tantras, (e.g., Mahāmāyātantra 2.19a-b): “The perfect Buddhas who have entered (samāgata) into Yoganidrā [yoganidrāsamāgatāḥ] realize [that secret knowledge.]”.
Tibetan Buddhism includes schools such as Nyingma, Kadampa, Kagyu and Gelug. Their primary canon of literature is divided in two broad categories: The Kangyur, which consists of Buddha’s words, and the Tengyur, which includes commentaries from various sources. Esotericism and tantra techniques (vajrayāna) are collected indepently.
