Yādṛś (यादृश्) refers to “whatever” (e.g., ‘whatever fruit one desires’), according to the Svacchandatantra verse 4.79b-81b.—Accordingly, “Next there is the initiation for the purpose of the purification of the cosmic path for those who seek the fruit of [either] enjoyment or liberation. The subtle method that causes the cutting of the bonds is explained. The Guru asks the candidate seeking benefits [about] the two-fold [option]. Whatever (yādṛś) fruit he desires, accordingly (tādṛś) he should start the propitiation of Mantras”.
