Divyaugha (दिव्यौघ) refers to the “divine current”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—The Liṅga is identified with the core of the goddess's maṇḍala, an association which, although quite natural, is entirely absent in the earlier Kubjikā Tantras. [...] In the centre of the maṇḍala, the Divine Liṅga streams with the series of states that accompany the Yoga of Nirvāṇa. This is Divine Current (divyaugha) that flows through the Void of ultimate reality.

He resided in the sacred seat of Oḍyāṇa during the Kṛta Age.
