Savikāra (सविकार) refers to “one whose mind had wavered”, according to the Śrīmatottara-tantra, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “[...] Kāma also reached (the same place) at that moment and, seeing that the lord was blissful (with love), playfully shoot the arrow named delusion. The Three-eyed One noticing that his mind had wavered (savikāra) he, the God of the gods, embarrassed and angry, looked around in (every) direction.
