In Tantric Buddhism body mandalas are taught in the major Anuttarayoga systems of practice such as the Chakrasamvara, Guhyasamaja and Hevajra Tantras. Each of these Tantras have different explanations for naming the individual deities, and describing and explaining the meanings and functions of the internal body mandala.

Body Mandalas belong to the category of Mandala-like Circular Forms.
