Bhedayat (भेदयत्) refers to “that which breaks through”, according to the Kularatnoddyota, one of the earliest Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly, “[...]  You have a third form which is present (in the Transmission of) the Youth and ends with (that of) the Aged. [...] (This form of the goddess) breaks through [i.e., bhedayatbhedayantī] the Wheels by means of (her) great mass of rays that are to the side, above and below. Issuing forth from the Door of Brahmā, she has become one in the supreme, pure and unsupported Void. O Kubjeśī, you should be contemplated in this way residing in the Transmission of the Youth”.
