Dravatā (द्रवता, “fluidity”) refers to one of the attributes of pitta (one of the three biological humors, or tridoṣa). Dravatā is characterised by tenderness and laxity (looseness) in joints, bones and muscles and excessive sweating, urination and excretion. Pitta represents the “fire element” of the human body and is situated in the hṛdaya (cardiac region).

Dravatā (द्रवता) refers to “melting”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—“[...] She who is praised (by all) and is supreme bliss, laughingly melts (dravatā). She is the Nameless (anāmā), the energy that is consciousness (who resides) in the sphere of the Nameless (anāmamaṇḍala). [...]”.—(Cf. Mālinīstava)
