Lolībhūta (लोलीभूत) refers to a “vibrant union” (i.e., that which is fused together), according to the Tantric texts such as the Kubjikāmata-tantra, the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly:—“[...] Then handing (back to Bhairava) the Garland of Letters whose form consists of the principles of existence, she (i.e., the Goddess) resumed her prior body made of the seed-syllable (AIṀ), and she who is the Kuṇḍalinī of Nectar (amṛtakuṇḍali) fell asleep. (Then) the Lord of the gods was confused: ‘Where have all the letters gone?’ Greatly astonished, (he) understood instantly that: ‘they are all fused together (lolībhūta) and have merged into the principle of the individual soul (jīva). O (great indeed) is the goddess’s power!’ Thus thought the lord of the universe”.
