Svaprabodha (स्वप्रबोध) refers to “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, “I salute Lord Bhairava who, in the company of the gods and sages, is one’s own free consciousness [i.e., svacchanda-svaprabodha]. He is the quelling of the fear of fettered existence. The first of the venerable Kulālīkrama, he is eternal, inconceivable and without measure. He is universal bliss. Eternal and (only) attainable by Yoga he delights in the sequence of Ha and Sa (of the two breaths). His sole condition that of the cause unconditioned by (its) effect, his glorious power is extensive”.
