root tantra tantras/treatises which explain everything concisely. The root-tantras and their commentaries are practical manuals for all tantric literature and is based upon what are known as the root-tantras. Guhyasamaja-tantra is the first of the root tantras describing yoga techniques as well as the mandalas, mantras and rites associated with the propitiation of a particular deity and his retinue. The root-tantras can be classified as father, mother or non-dual tantras: father-tantras stress the creative mode of meditation and skillful means; mother-tantras emphasize fulfillment meditation and perfect insight; and non-dual tantras treat both equally.
