Free and desirous of herself, she bestows perpetual bliss, which is delighted by phenomenal existence. In the middle of that (Drop) is the Divine Liṅga, which is eternal bliss that generates supreme bliss, (its) form the Drop and nature the Void. Churned by both, it is divided by the six parts. I salute the venerable (Goddess) called Kubjikā whose beautiful body is aroused and makes love there. I salute the one whose name is the Nameless (nirṇāma—nirṇāmanāmnāya), who contemplates the phenomenal being of the Wheel of the Earth (which is the syllable AIṂ). Salutations to the goddess of bliss. Salutations to you whose form is the Yoni”.
