Tārārahasya (तारारहस्य).—The Tārārahasya in four paricchedas or paṭalas was written by the well-known Brahmānanda. It was, however, somewhat overshadowed in popularity by the Tārārahasyavṛttikā written by Śaṅkara Āgamācārya of Bengal. The first of the fifteen chapters describes daily worship; the second, initiation, etc; the sixth is devoted to Mahācīnakrama “the Tibetan method”, a code of ritual behaviour peculiar to Tārā worship. The number of ślokas has been estimated at 2500.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!).
