Rūpavarjita (रूपवर्जित) refers to “(being) devoid of form”, according to the Ciñcinīmatasārasamuccaya verse 7.220cd-222.—Accordingly, “One's own form, devoid of form (rūpavarjita), is the form between form and non-form. (That) undifferentiated reality is active everywhere and is free of Being and Non-being. Kālī, the Supreme Goddess who devours the Skeleton (of Time) is manifest there. Once drunk from the vessel of the sprout of the Skeleton born of the nectar of the Void, she is made to pulsate and vomit. Thus, the universe comes into being”.
