Yonisaṃkula (योनिसंकुल) refers to “full of the wombs” (i.e., ‘that transmigration which is full of the wombs within which one is reborn’), 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, [while describing the Eight Kulas]—“[...] He who knows the omnipresent Kula is a teacher in the Kula (kulācārya). He who says that Kulakaula is devoid of the knowledge of the planes (of existence) does not have liberation and he wanders in the world of transmigration full of the wombs (yonisaṃkula) (within which he is reborn)”.
