Sarvabodha (सर्वबोध) refers to “universal consciousness”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “I salute the venerable Kulālī, the supreme break-through, the awakening to the door of liberation. Her body is the bliss of the divine Command and, on the (transcendental) plane of Akula, she is universal consciousness [i.e., sarvabodha-svarūpā]. [...] The whole reality has been attained whose glorious power is unperturbed and from which the mud of fear (āṭaṅka) has been removed”.
