Kuṅkumodaka (कुङ्कुमोदक) refers to “vermillion water”, according to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “The colour of coral, she is the Triangle and her form is subtle. At dawn in the morning I praise the red Mother, the form of Kubjikā. At midday I praise the youthful Kulakubjikā who, the colour of vermillion water [i.e., kuṅkumodaka-rūpā], is Kaulinī whose form is Kuṇḍalinī. Dark blue and red, with three eyes, large teeth and face deformed, at dusk I worship the great Aged One, the Kubjikā of liberation”.
