Yogābhipanna (योगाभिपन्न) refers to “those who practice Yoga”.—The highest attainment is that of the Command itself (ājñāsiddhi). This is also called the Accomplishment of Speech (vācāsiddhi). [...] According to the Kubjikāmatatantra, the Accomplishment of Speech (vācāsiddhi) is the highest of a series of sixteen states (avasthā) experienced by those who practice Yoga (yogābhipanna). According to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, it is a special and specific accomplishment attained by practicing the Vidyā of the seven Yoginīs. The Kumārikākhaṇḍa promises that the regular recitation of the Mālinīstava and the contemplation of its seed-syllables will bring about a “divine penetration” (divyāveśa) and with it, the grace of the Accomplishment of Speech (i.e., vācāsiddhi).
