Svabodhabodha (स्वबोधबोध) refers to the “consciousness of one’s own consciousness”, 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, “There is (the energy which is) one measure (ekamātrā), two measures (dvimātrā) and three measures (trimātrā). The (energy which is the) half-measure is supreme and subtle. Above it is (the one reality which is both) supreme (transcendent) and inferior (immanent). It is the teacher’s place, the Great Place. The Self, which is endowed with the consciousness of its own consciousness [i.e., svabodhabodha-yuktātmā], has come from that Place. The pure (beings) who are on their way to the Supreme should also be conjoined into that plane, initiated by Śrīnātha”.
