Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Ādṛṣṭi (आदृष्टि) or Devyādṛṣṭi refers to the “gaze” (viz., of the goddess), according to the second recension of the Yogakhaṇḍa of the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “Śaṃkara (was made) whole (avikara) by the gaze of the goddess that fell (on him) [i.e., devī-ādṛṣṭi-nipāta]. Satisfied by supreme bliss, Hara also abandoned his own Liṅga and there arose the form of Sadyojāta, that is, the One-faced Bhairava”.
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.
Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)
Adṛṣṭi (अदृष्टि) refers to “negative views”, according to the Madhyamakaśāstra.—Accordingly, “[...] If there were something non-empty, There should be something empty; But if the non-empty does not exist, How would the empty exist? The fool (bāla) who sees the non-empty; Then sees the empty as well. Not having positive views (dṛṣṭi) or negative views (adṛṣṭi); Is truly ‘nirvāṇa’. Non-duality (advaya), the gates of security (yogakṣema), The destruction of wrong views, The domain surveyed by the Buddhas, That is the ‘doctrine of Anātman’”
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings). Extant literature is vast and primarely composed in the Sanskrit language. There are many sūtras of which some of the earliest are the various Prajñāpāramitā sūtras.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
