Samantabhadra’s Sāramañjarī (ca. mid-9th century CE) is a commentary on Jñānapāda’s Samantabhadrasādhana (ca. late 8th century CE), a meditation manual of the Guhyasamājatantra. The book presents the first critical edition of the Sanskrit text as well as the first English translation of a long portion devoted to the logical justification of the practice of binduyoga. The book also contains a general introduction to the work and a philosophical introduction to its contents.
