Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Tvaritā (त्वरिता) refers to one of the “nine Durgās” (Navadurgā), participating in Vīrabhadra campaign against Dakṣa, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.33. Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“Mahākālī went ahead for the destruction of Dakṣa accompanied by nine Durgās [viz., Tvaritā]. Eager in executing the command of Śiva, they accompanied the marching heroes—Ḍākinī, Śākinī, Bhūtas, Pramathas, Guhyakas, Kūṣmāṇḍas, Parpaṭas, Caṭakas, Brahma-Rākṣasas, Bhairavas and Kṣetrapālas and set out quickly for the destruction of Dakṣa’s sacrifice”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.

1) Tvaritā (त्वरिता) is identified with Kubjikā in the earliest sources.—Tvaritā is not mentioned at all in the Kumārikākhaṇḍa and she is simply the fourth of the sixty-four Yoginīs worshipped in the Śrīmatottara. Tvaritā appears in Yogakhaṇḍa as one of seven forms of Kubjikā, along with Khañjinī, Klinnā, Mīnā, Garbhasamudbhavā, Vakrikā and Aryā, who reside within the Saṃvartāmaṇḍala as aspects of the leader of the transmission (kramanāyikā) where they are worshipped in the hexagram with Khañjinī in the centre. [...] The Śrīmatasārasaṃgraha groups her together with Khañjī, Kubjī, Laghvī and Pañcamī. [...] Tvaritā is one of the sixteen Nityās worshipped in Śrīcakra and appears regularly in later Kaula Tantras such as the Śaktisaṃgamatantra and Tantric compendiums.
The Tantrapaddhati presents Tvaritā as Gaurī, that is, as Pārvatī, Śiva’s consort, in the form of a tribal woman—Śavarī, an identification in common with Kubjikā and, indeed, a host of other goddesses. Her origin is grafted onto the well known story of the penance Arjuna observed in a Himalayan forest in order to acquire the Pāśupata Weapon from Śiva. Pleased by his penance, Śiva appeared before him in the garb of a tribal hunter accompanied by the goddess who assumed a similar form as Tvaritā, the tribal Śavarī. Worship of Pārvatī in the form of a Śavarī, the text assures us, gives accomplishment3 and the chanting of Tvaritā’s mantra brings prosperity
2) Tvaritā (त्वरिता) refers to one of the nine Nityās (Yoginīs particularly concerned with Kāma), 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, “Kulanityā is the first and Vajreśvarī is the second. The third is the Nityā Tvaritā and the fourth is Kurukullā. The goddess Lalitā is the fifth and the sixth is called Bheruṇḍā. The seventh is Nīlapatākā and the eighth is Kāmamaṅgalā. The goddess Vyomavyāpinī, who bestows accomplishment, is the ninth. O Lord of the gods, once known Tripurā, on (her) red lotus seat by means of the liturgy of the Nine Nityās recollect (her) liturgy (krama)”.
Note: Tvaritā (also called Totalā) is also mentioned as one of the Sixteen Nityās associated with Śrīvidyā described in the Tantrarājatantra.
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
