Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Karṇamoṭī (कर्णमोटी):—Sanskrit name of one of the twenty-four goddesses of the Sūryamaṇḍala (first maṇḍala of the Khecarīcakra) according to the kubjikāmata-tantra. The Khecarīcakra is the fifth cakra (‘internal mystic center’) of the five (pañcacakra) and is located on or above the head. She presides over the pītha (‘sacred site’) called Śrīkoṭa (also known as Devīkoṭa).Source: Wisdom Library: Kubjikāmata-tantra
Karṇamoṭī (कर्णमोटी) is the name of a Goddess (Devī) presiding over Śrīkoṭa: one of the twenty-four sacred districts mentioned in the Kubjikāmatatantra (chapter 22). Her weapon is the śūla. Furthermore, Karṇamoṭī is accompanied by the Kṣetrapāla (field-protector) named Hetuka and their abode is an vaṭa-tree. A similar system appears in the 9th century Vajraḍākatantra (chapter 18).Source: academia.edu: A Critical Study of the Vajraḍākamahātantrarāja (II) (shaivism)
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Karṇamoṭī (कर्णमोटी) is the name of a mind-born ‘divine mother’ (mātṛ), created for the purpose of drinking the blood of the Andhaka demons, according to the Matsya-purāṇa 179.8. The Andhaka demons spawned out of every drop of blood spilled from the original Andhakāsura (Andhaka-demon). According to the Matsya-purāṇa 179.35, “Most terrible they (eg., Karṇamoṭī) all drank the blood of those Andhakas and become exceedingly satiated.”
The Matsyapurāṇa is categorised as a Mahāpurāṇa, and was originally composed of 20,000 metrical verses, dating from the 1st-millennium BCE. The narrator is Matsya, one of the ten major avatars of Viṣṇu.Source: Wisdom Library: The Matsya-purāṇa
