Meditation on the Three-Layered Protection Wheel of Chandali by Jigten Sumgon

This sadhana, composed by Jigten Sumgön (1143-1217), contains the practices of Avalokitesharva, the wrathful deity Achala, and Vajrayogini woven into one. It is designed to be practiced when doing the practices of chandali (tummo or inner fire meditation).
Does anyone know what class of tantra the Achala mantra from this sadhana originates from? I'm assuming it's from the Anuttarayoga class, but am not completely certain. Garchen Rinpoche gave lung of this sadhana a few months back and I've always been curious about this.
