Vedhakrama (वेधक्रम) refers to the “procedure of manipulation of energy”, according to the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—The difference between the disciple and the teacher is that the former may succumb to the energy of the Command, whereas the teacher knows how to make use of it. He consciously manipulates the energy that takes hold of his fettered disciple, bringing about in him this certifying sign (pratyaya) of its presence and realisation (pratyaya). Indeed, knowledge of this procedure (vedhakrama) is the hallmark of a true teacher.
