Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Sarvārtha (सर्वार्थ) refers to “all (one’s) goals”, according to the Kularatnoddyota, one of the earliest Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly, “[...] O goddess, (this form) bestows all fruits and gives (both) worldly enjoyment and liberation and accomplishes all (one’s) goals [i.e., sarvārtha-sādhanī]. She destroys all suffering and drags (away all) disturbance. She bestows tranquillity, fulfillment and accomplishment. She bestows flight and the rest as well as the most divine gathering in the circle (of initiates). O beloved, she bestows the cosmic form and whatever desire (kāma) and wealth (one may) wish for. You will thus be the object of adoration (pujyā) by means of the Vidyā of thirty-two syllables”.
