General definition (in Hinduism)

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.
