Sarvapraṇa (सर्वप्रण) refers to the “life breath of all”, according to the Kulakaulinīmata.—Accordingly, “[...] She is the eternal Transmental. Devoid of the universe of thought constructs (niṣprapañcā), she resides in the life breath of all [i.e., sarvapraṇa]. She is the supreme energy, called Kuṇḍalī and is the seventeenth energy (of the Moon). [...] She is the subtle (aspect). I will (now) tell (you) how she is in (her) gross form. [...] Residing within the plane of the Neuter (absolute), she is (the one) energy (kalā) and her form is (made of all the) energies. She is threefold (as) will, knowledge and action and abides (permanently) having pervaded the universe”.
