Śleṣmikā (श्लेष्मिका) refers to a group of deities summoned by the Yamāntaka-mantra and mentioned as attending the teachings in the 6th century Mañjuśrīmūlakalpa: one of the largest Kriyā Tantras devoted to Mañjuśrī (the Bodhisattva of wisdom) representing an encyclopedia of knowledge primarily concerned with ritualistic elements in Buddhism. The teachings in this text originate from Mañjuśrī and were taught to and by Buddha Śākyamuni in the presence of a large audience (including Śleṣmikā).
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.

Śleṣmika (श्लेष्मिक).—a. (-kī f.)
2) Producing phlegm.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Edgerton Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit Dictionary
Śleṣmika (श्लेष्मिक).—[, adj., = Sanskrit ślaiṣmika, (disease) due to (disturbance of) phlegm: kathaṃ cikitsā kartavyā vāte pitte śleṣmike tathā Suvarṇabhāsottamasūtra 177.10 (verse), so Nobel. But the meter is bad, and I think we should read vātike paittike tathā for the 2d pāda, with best ms. except that it reads yettike for pai°. Diseases of phlegm were, in the orig. reading, mentioned in the 2d pāda of the next line, where, contrary to Nobel, I would read with 2 mss., incl. the best, kaphavyādhipraśāntaye (v.l. kaphaja-vyā°). The four pādas then present the same four topics, and in the same order, as in 179.7—10 below.]
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
