Yoginīmata (योगिनीमत) refers to the “teaching of the Yoginīs”, according to the Kularatnoddyota (verse 2.4cd-10).—We read in the previous reference that the Śrīkula is ‘called the Lineage (santāna) of the Siddhas and is attended by Yoginīs and Siddhas’. The intimate association of Siddhas and Yoginīs with the transmission of a Kaula tradition is one of its most basic characteristics. The Kubjikā Tantras are the transmission of the Yoginīs (yoginīkrama) and their teaching (yoginīmata). The whole tradition is the Family of Yoginīs—Yoginīkula and the transmission and Family of Siddhas—Siddhakrama, Siddhakula.
