Klinnacetas (क्लिन्नचेतस्) refers to “one whose mind is wet”.—The goddess’s intense spiritual potency is symbolized by her powerful sexuality represented by her perpetual moisture as the Yoni full of seed. [...] When she is engaged in union with Bhairava, he addresses her as ‘one whose mind is wet’ (klinnacetas). She is the ‘bliss of the sport (of love making)’ and the teachings are the Path that Wets (kledanāmārga). Here in the holy site of Kāmarūpa, the goddess’s spiritual energy is particularly intense, even the goddess is amazed to perceive the intensity of her arousal and for a moment is ‘deluded’, loosing consciousness, overawed by the powerful beauty of her own form reflected in the goddess of the place.
