Śreyasaṃpada (श्रेयसंपद) refers to “virtue”.—The Ūrmikaulārṇavatantra repeatedly stresses the supreme importance of the teacher’s command [i.e., ājñā]. Without it, there is no virtue (śreyasaṃpada) in the Kula. For the good disciple the teacher’s command is the supreme spiritual means (sādhanā). He is eager to observe his teacher’s command, and delights in the bliss he experiences by observing the command of the teaching (krama) mediated through his teacher.
