As of now, there is no complete English Translation of the Rudra-Yamala scripture because the original manuscripts of the Original Rudra-Yamala are lost, unfortunately.


This is what Hindupedia-site says-

The Rudrayamala is used as a source by many other agamas but the original appears to be lost. Strictly speaking, a Yamala is a different class of text, and supposed to pre-date the tantras. However, manuscripts of the Yamala seem to be lost, except as quotations in later works.

They are providing a chapter-wise summarized analysis of a published work, a tantra with the same name, but they maintain that the Original Rudra-Yamala is a lost text now.

This analysis of the contents is of a tantra given the same name, but almost certainly, from internal evidence, not the original text. Although its provenance is unknown, it nevertheless contains a great deal of interesting information and focuses in great detail on the identity of the goddess with Kundalini. Published in a Sanskrit edition by the Vacasampati Press, Calcutta, this work is divided into 66 chapters (patala) of different lengths and written in a simple manner._ Here is a digest of its contents (under construction).

  • In fact, many tantras seem to be lost, and please share links on our site if any are available. @Ricross mentioned that only a few are available, especially in English.
