The text alone of this book was first published by Rasikamohana Chattopadhyaya, who brought out so many tantrik works, from Calcutta, in the Bengali year 1285 (AD 1880), and it was printed in the Bengali character. Pandit Jivananda Vidyasagara brought out an edition in Devanagra character with the commentary of Raghavabhatta in AD 1886, which was printed in Benaras.

The Benaras edition was evidently based on a single manuscript, and suffers in consequence. This book has the advantage of having taken into account the following manuscripts:
1> Manuscript loaned by Kumar Sharat Kumara Roy, Founder and President of the Varendra Research Society, Rajshahi, Bengal
2> Manuscript loaned by the Asiatic Society of Bengal
3> A summary of Raghaba's commentary by Rai Ishvari Prasad of Kaliyasthana, Patna
4> A manuscript belonging to Pandit Amulya Charana Vidyabhushana
5> A Press copy of the first eight chapters of the book prepared by Pandit Satish Chandra.
