‚ÄúTreasure texts” (terma) texts are teachings thought to be composed by the lama Padmasambhava for revelation at just the right point in history. In order to protect them and keep them secret, they were written in a script that superficially resembles classical Tibetan, but are in fact coded in the language of the dakinis. Only by encountering a dakini like Simhavaktra can they be decoded and practiced.
