Trirekhāṅga (त्रिरेखाङ्ग) refers to the “limbs of the three lines (of the Triangle)”, 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, “O you who reside at the End of the Eighteen! (You are) also beyond the state of the Transmental. You are Śāmbhavī who awakens Śambhu. [...] (At the same time) you are on the plane of the current of the state beyond the Transmental. (Your) nature is subtle; your form is that of the beautiful and radiant energy which is the Half Moon. Encompassed by the Triangle, you are in the centre. Born from the limbs of the three lines (of the Triangle) [i.e., trirekhāṅga-saṃbhūtā], you are completely full and reside in the sacred seat in the centre. O Kubjī, you are Mālinī who awakens (Bhairava) the Gander (haṃsa). (When you are) in the Cavity (in the centre), you are sprinkled inwardly by the stream of nectar of the Śiva principle”
