Cārācārapatha (चाराचारपथ) refers to the “path of movement and rest”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “Camuṇḍā (the sixth Mother) moves without motion and, mounted on the path of movement and rest (cārācārapatha-ārūḍhā), she resides in the end of the End of the Sixteen. Carcikā resides there”.
