Vijñānabodha (विज्ञानबोध) refers to “having insights into (many forms of) knowledge”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “The goddess Matsyodarī is Tārā, the (energy) Śāntyatītā who impels the awakened. Mīnanātha, who has overcome the impurity of the Age of Strife is (the Siddha) Sādākhya in the sacred seat of the Moon (i.e. Candrapura). He is the hero who lays hold of the Yoni which is the (supreme) plane of all the universe by means of (his) insights into many (forms of) knowledge (nānā-vijñānabodha). I always bow to him who reveals Kula by means of the various lineages (of initiates)”.
