Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Agrāhya (अग्राह्य) refers to “that which cannot be grasped”, according to the Śrīmatottara-tantra, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “What is the use of a rosary or keeping the eyes closed? If there is concentration or meditation, one does not attain consciousness. There is no pure light in Iḍā, or in Piṅgalā, or Suṣumṇā, although (all these places) are said to be means to attainment. (This reality) is said to be ‘without support’ and it cannot be grasped [i.e., agrāhya] even by the gods. Thus, it is beyond Form (rūpa) and Part (pada) and its sphere (of existence) is beyond the beyond. It is not an object of meditation. [...]”.
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)Source: academia.edu: A Study and Translation of the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā
Agrāhya (अग्राह्य) refers to “ungraspable”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly: “[...] The Bodhisattva Dharmarāja and the whole congregation, having joined the palms of their hands, paid homage to open space, and sat down. Then, by the magical presence of the Bodhisattva Gaganagañja, these verses resonated in open space: ‘[...] (138) Just as the open space is boundless and ungraspable (agrāhya) everywhere, the great power of insight is the same as the sameness of open space. (139) Just as a bird flying in the sky does not leave any trace, one who practices for awakening does not have any distinguishing mark in their behaviour. [...]’”.
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.
Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana or tantric Buddhism)Source: OSU Press: Cakrasamvara Samadhi
Agrāhya (अग्राह्य) refers to “inconceivable” [i.e., agrāhyānabhilāpyāś ca], according to the Guru Mandala Worship (maṇḍalārcana) ritual often performed in combination with the Cakrasaṃvara Samādhi, which refers to the primary pūjā and sādhanā practice of Newah Mahāyāna-Vajrayāna Buddhists in Nepal.—Accordingly, “Conditions are like reflections, transparent, pure, indeed clear, Inconceivable (agrāhya) and inexpressible, arising from causes and effects”.
Tibetan Buddhism includes schools such as Nyingma, Kadampa, Kagyu and Gelug. Their primary canon of literature is divided in two broad categories: The Kangyur, which consists of Buddha’s words, and the Tengyur, which includes commentaries from various sources. Esotericism and tantra techniques (vajrayāna) are collected indepently.
