Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Antaga (अन्तग) refers to the “last one”, according to the Ṭīkā (commentary) on the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, [while discussing the syllables of Navātman]: “The Moon Yoni—Sa, Śiva—Ha, the Fire of Time—Ra, the Vowel—Ū, the Last One (antaga)—KṢa. Time (kāla)—Ma, the Support of the Lotus Yoni—La, the Lord of the Wind—Ya and the Womb of Knowledge—Va. The form of (these) letters, extracted according to (their essential) condition and fused together into one syllabic mantra, is called Navātman. How else is it? It is covered with Sound. [...]”.
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.
