It seems to me that this yoga discourse is not very Tantric in character. Even if it surfaces in the Tantra genre, the content, discussions, and notions are all derived from Buddhist and Brahmin yoga discourses. So it would be misleading to call it a Tantric yoga, of which for instance hatha-yoga is a clear example. Malini is basically a Saivite yoga. It merges Saivite monotheism neatly with yoga forms reminding much about Yoga Sutra and Buddhist Gnostic liberation. These Saivite yoga forms are packaged and spun – to use a modern terminology -as a Tantra, which was the tendency of the period.
Vasudeva argues that the existence of Malini and a range of other texts is in fact an indication of a Saivite yoga tradition. This might be correct as the texts only add parts of Tantric discourse to a melting pot of ascetic-wisdom discourses and Saivite monotheism.
