While searching about Goddesses associated with various handicrafts, I came to know about Goddess Kubjika. She is associated with the potter community and is the prime goddess of pottery. Initially, I thought ,ubjika is a local village goddess worshipped primarily in Nepal and Almora, India.

After a bit of research, made me kubjikw that she is a powerful Tantric goddess who is one of the many manifestations of Kali and Adishakti. But to my surprise, I have never heard about her and or seen her image in most of the Tantric literature that I have come across. Her name means a woman with hunchback or curve. Kubjika is also Kundalini who is coiled together and is residing in a bent over form in the body of Sadhaka.

Kubjika Tantra Text

She often appears in three forms: I think this again symbolizes the opening or unfolding or awakening of Kundalini. Once she was sitting to worship the union of God and the Goddess. She contracted her body when God appeared and held her hand. Hence, getting the name Kubjika. References to Kubjika can be found in two documents: Kubjikamatatantra and the Satsahasra-Kulalikamnaya. Kubjika is mainly mentioned in Pascimamnaya amnaya in Kulagama scriptures belonging to Kaula tradition within Shaivism.

Agni Purana touches upon the worship of Kubjika by paying obeisance to Aghora.

It gives mantra for the worship and says that worship of Kubjika is known to the acquisition of all knowledge and masteries of skills. He writes that Goddess is worshipped in secrecy by Newar people in Kathmandu. She is the great mother and is pure bliss.

She resides beyond mind and is the source of the divine power of the Shiva. But she is undoubtedly the gateway rantra the immense ancient and hidden knowledge of Tantra. I think the death of any continuity of worshipping a kubjila occurs when the way of worship does not agree with natural order. I guess this Goddess bongs to the lefthand path is it same as western tantra, as you named it?

Like Liked by 1 person. Maybe you are right. But I have my questions regarding what is natural order? Who decides natural order? The Natural Order is what that happens in front of us. The same story that happens around in and around our creation, happens inside us aswell.


Then, he uses the smilies and personification and poetic ornaments to represent this story. When a layman reads it or thinks it, it subtly resonates with their inner self, because its nothing but their own story externalised. When this happens, the truth being in varient of time and location, it is preserved from getting sucked by the winds of time.

I think there were various other reasons. You see how Babylonia or Chaldean or Egyptian way of culture is dead?! Because of this element.

I adore Indian wisdom paths for one thing. The way of encoding. They had a way of encoding which could not be touched by the selfish motives. So my point was, kubjika may have been equivalent to Para Devi in theory. But when put into practice, it might not have appealed larger groups due to the way of left hand path and the inability of people to recognize the inner beauties which delude people to easily fall into pits of dark side paths.

No, it is not so! Where did you get this notion of whole tantra being left?

Tantra has two paths: This is prominently symbolised by Central triangle up or down in Sri Chakra. Bhaskara Raya was adept in left hand path and showed to the then critics how its equivalent to right hand path.

But in any case, the while tantra is NOT left. Of anyone says that, you can show Soundarya Lahari as an example. I read bits and parts of Saundarya Lahiri yesterday. It is an excellent document. Such wisdom and knowledge, people of this ancient land had.

SL is like epitome of Sri Vidya. Its capsulised in shlokas, the whole Sri Vidya. Interestingly, the same SL can be interpreted as left as well as right with just a degree rotation of the yantra.

You must read it when you get time. Hehe… So true… Infact, always meditate on what you read. If it is one thing that I learnt in my search, it is that everything unfolds from within. When I say meditate, it does not mean sitting in a pose and closing eyes. I mean actual meditation. When you read something, three aspects exist right? The reader, process of reading and the thing being read. In that state, you will see what I am wanting to say!

In an essence this is goal of Tantra hence triangles and points. You are second friend who is mentioning Rumi in this week. I think I must look at his works… Is he someone like Khalil Gibran? Who is baba rampuri…. Cool, two new figures to search!


I guess we need to learn the art of symbols as in Veda or tantra to speak volumes and volumes in just a stroke of a line. Also, problem with tantric gods and goddesses is that they are technical, like Vedic deities.

When Vyasa introduced Puranas, I guess they stole the hearts of Kings as well as peasants in same magnitude, due to their narrative simplicity. That is why, the puranic deities are what mostly followed now a days, than vedic or tantric or any other paths. Agree both Vedas and Tantra are unique and are two distinct branches of the same tree.

It is tough to understand and follow this path nowadays especially when so much negative is written about Tantra. People often tend to spread negativity, without even properly researching…. When a white paper is shown, we always spot even a tiniest dot on it rather than acknowledging the whiteness of it. But I always feel, where there is smoke of negativity and filththere sure is fire of pure wisdom waiting keenly for us to locate it.

Sorry, I just realised one interesting point. But if she is bent forward, then her back is by default curved and hence Kubjika!

Suits perfectly with right hand path — See… One describes the front while other describes the back! In essence same thing: Like Liked by 2 people. It is so empowering to find the hidden stories and heal the collective. Thanks, frangipani loving tropical lady sipping jasmine tea. I am glad that you enjoyed reading the post.

True, the mass appeal element is important. Somehow the whole tantra is categorized into left hand. I have serious objections to it. In an essence this is goal of Tantra hence triangles and points Like Liked by 1 person. And what you seek is seeking you as Rumi said.

Your observations are a post in itself. Hehe Like Liked by 1 person.
