Ādivarjita (आदिवर्जित) refers to “one without beginning” and is used to describe Tūśnīnātha, according to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “That is the supreme solace, (the universal) cause, the imperishable Śiva. Unborn, it is omnipresent, subtle, omniscient and facing everywhere. It is the primordial god called ‘Endless’ whose nature is emptiness and is without defect. Without beginning or end, it is tranquil, devoid of beginning [e.g., ādivarjita], middle, or end”.
