Āhlādana (आह्लादन) means “to delight”, according to the Śrīmatottara-tantra, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “(The third sacred seat) is located in the throat and it illumines as do the rays of the full moon. Moonlight by nature, its purpose is to delight by the currents of nectar (that stream from it into the body) [i.e., amṛtapravāha-āhlādana-artha] and to (bring about) many forms of emanation. The emperor (who governs from this seat) is the venerable Ṣaṣṭhīśanātha who resides in the middle of the wheel surrounded by sixteen energies. He is mounted on the energy of action and is surrounded by many troupes of Yoginīs. [...]”.
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.
