The Secret Assembly
‘Guhyasamaja’ means ‘Assembly of the Secret Ones’ (Tib. Sangwa-dupa) or ‘Secret Union’.
The Guhyasamaja tantra is also referred to as the King of Tantras. In Tibet, Guhyasamaja is particularly favored by the Gelug tradition, most likely for the antiquity of his texts. It was one of the first Sanskrit scriptures to be translated into Tibetan in the 8th Century. It serves the Buddhist practitioner in understanding and practising Tantric Buddhism.
