1) Sarvatomukha (सर्वतोमुख) refers to “(the Liṅga that) faces everywhere”, according to Tantric texts such as the Kubjikāmata-tantra, the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “[...] The gods then began to praise Bhairava again. He offers them a boon and they ask him for the Liṅga that “faces everywhere” (sarvatomukha) and the teaching that concerns the all-pervasive (vyāptibhūta) Liṅga. So he shows them the Path of Pervasion (vyāptimārga) after having fashioned the manifest Liṅga whose field are the qualities of the Six Paths. He showed them his body by means of the teaching concerning the Six Paths along which the universe, physical, metaphysical, energetic and the corresponding mantras and phonemes are emitted”.
2) Sarvatomukha (सर्वतोमुख) refers to “omnipresent”, 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, “[...] (9) Above that is the principle of Unstruck Sound; the head of ‘A’ (aśira), it is omnipresent [i.e., sarvatomukha]. Like (the sound of a) mad bee, that is said to be lucid meditation. [...] (Perfect) contemplation (samādhi) is with (these) sixteen aspects and is (attained) within the form of the sixfold deposition (ṣoḍhānyāsa). He who knows this is (a veritable) Lord of Yogis, the others (who do not) are (just) quoting from books. Once attained the plane that is Void and Non-void, the yogi is freed from bondage”.
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
