Sarvatomukhī (सर्वतोमुखी) refers to “that which is facing in all directions”, according to the Kularatnoddyota, one of the earliest Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly, “[...] The supreme form is flawless, pervasive and facing everywhere. It can be perceived as the bliss of contemplation, the mark of which is supreme bliss. Free of the qualities of form and the rest and devoid of limiting adjuncts and meditation—this, O fair one, is the non-dual vision of you directly apparent. This is the supreme meditation with form whose characteristic is that it is without form. You are in this way supreme, subtle, pervasive, and facing in all directions [i.e., sarvatomukhī]. The second (form) is called the Coiled One who resides equally in the (Wheel of the) Foundation and (the other Wheels) above”.
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.
