Yugadharma (युगधर्म) refers to the “various types of initiation according to each yuga”, according to the Kularatnoddyota, one of the earliest Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly, “[...] Āṇava is said to be (brought about) by the mantras applied through the process (krama) of uttering the letters (that constitute them). In this way, O fair-faced one, in the future, in (the course of) the a eons, great (kalpa) and small (manvantara), the rite (karman) of initiation will be of three types. The rite of initiation in the Kula tradition (āmnāya) will take place during (the various) ages (yuga) and (varies) according to the nature of (each) age [i.e., yugadharma], and (will be imparted) through the line (krama) of teachers and disciples by means of insights (vijñāna) (outwardly apparent) as the signs of attainment (pratyaya)”.
