Svacchandagati (स्वच्छन्दगति) refers to “one sanctified with freedom”, according to Tantric texts such as the Kubjikāmata-tantra, the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “While he eats, the adept should think that the mantra he has deposited with all its limbs (onto the body) and is established in Bhairava's form, is in (his) plate. As he eats, he should contemplate the full moon (and so) he eats the nectar that is in the Full Moon, encapsulated above and below (by this mantra). (Doing this) the adept may wander around constantly and gets all that is most excellent and the success (siddhi) he desires, having placed in (his) heart Kujeśvara who is in the middle of the lunar orb, sanctified with freedom (svacchandagati) [...]”.
