Aprameyātman (अप्रमेयात्मन्) refers to “one who is free of objectivity”, according to the Kularatnoddyota, one of the earliest Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly, “[...] Free of objectivity (aprameyātman) and residing in his own foundation, (he contemplated himself) in order to fashion the wheel called (the Wheel of) Bliss. Thus, O fair lady, as he contemplated himself, billions of aeons passed for (the god who) abides in the aloof reality (of transcendence). Then, the benefactor of the universe, for the benefit of (his) attendants conceived the thought which is supreme Nirvāṇa, namely: ‘Who is our attendant?’. [...]”.
