Divyādivya (दिव्यादिव्य) refers to “(both) divine and human”, 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, “I am that sleeping serpent and, as is proper, (my) form is (both) divine and human [i.e., divyādivya-svarūpiṇī]. (I am) the Bliss of Stillness, incomparable, Anāmā, who is Parāparā. (I am) Aparā the energy Kaulinī and Parā who, devoid of (phenomenal) characteristics, is imperceptible. I am that goddess Kubjikā. I am the crooked (goddess). I am the one with the lion’s look and I am the one whose vehicle is Śiva”.
