Yonikuṇḍa (योनिकुण्ड) refers to one of the six kinds of kuṇḍa (fire-pit) mentioned in the Tattvacintāmaṇi (7.1-13). Yonikuṇḍa is also mentioned in the Kakṣipuṭatantra verse 14.2.—“A purified man should recite the mantra one hundred thousand times at the bottom of a vaṭa (Banyan)-tree. Afterwards, he offers bandhūka-flowers, honey, clarified butter, and milk every ten japas into the yoṇikuṇḍa (yoni-shaped pit). Then, the goddess Vicitrā is satisfied and gives the Sādhaka (practitioner) whatever he wants”.
