Dhyātavya (ध्यातव्य) refers to “that which is to be contemplated”, according to the Śrīmatottara-tantra, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “(The third sacred seat) [i.e., Pūrṇagiri] is located in the throat and it illumines as do the rays of the full moon. [...] (This) the third sacred seat, with (its) many diverse modalities (namely) the tree, creeper, cremation ground, guardian, creeper, monastery, gesture, and cave, should be worshipped, contemplated [i.e., dhyātavya] and known by means of (the deity’s) energy, in accord with the Kula liturgy (krama) along with him (the lord who is) mounted on the wheel of the aggregate of all the energies”.
