Unmanīśakti (उन्मनीशक्ति) refers to the “energy of the Transmental”.—According to the commentators, the Command [i.e., ājñā] is Śiva’s energy of consciousness (cit śakti). And this is essentially what it is according to the Kubjikā Tantras, but instead of calling it the energy of consciousness (an uncommon expression in these texts), they refer to it as the energy of the Transmental (unmanīśakti). This, essentially, is the empowering and purifying energy imparted by the deity directly or through the teacher. It liberates and bestows every form of accomplishment (siddhi) and worldly benefit (bhoga) to the one who receives it through initiation.
