Śatadhā (शतधा) refers to a “hundred times”, according to the Kubjikāmata-tantra, the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “(The disciple) should behave well for a period of eight, five or three years. Otherwise initiation should not be given to him (as) he (would not achieve) success in the Kula teachings. [...]  (The aspirant) is fit (to be a disciple) if he remains faithful (to his teacher) even if he scolds (him) a hundred times (śatadhā) or even beats (him) a thousand times. [...]”.
