Saṃlagna (संलग्न) means “connected”, according to the Śrīmatottara-tantra, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, as Bhairava explains: “[...] (The teacher) should think that (that energy) possesses the great force of a rotating wheel within the root Wheel. O goddess, he should think that it is rotating within the other body. He should imagine that (that energy) is straight and, connected to the soles of the feet [ā-pādatala-saṃlagna], (extends upwards). Having visualized it within the other body, (the teacher) will certainly cause (his disciple) to fall (on the ground in a trance)”.
