Surāvairiṇa (सुरावैरिण) is the husband of Vīramatī: the name of a Ḍākinī (‘sacred girl’) presiding over Godāvarī: one of the four Upapīthas (‘sacred spot’) present within the Cittacakra (‘circle of mid’), according to the 9th-centruy Vajraḍākatantra. The Cittacakra is one of three Cakras within the Tricakra system which embodies twenty-four sacred spots or districts resided over by twenty-four Ḍākinīs whose husbands (viz., Surāvairiṇa) abide in one’s body in the form of twenty-four ingredients (dhātu) of one’s body.
Vīramatī has for her husband the hero (vīra) named Surāvairiṇa. She is the presiding deity of Godāvarī and the associated internal location is ‘left ear’ and the bodily ingredient (dhātu) is ‘muscle’.Source: OSU Press: Cakrasamvara Samadhi
