Anvayājñā (अन्वयाज्ञा) refers to the “command of the tradition”.—[...] The practice and experience of Gesture in this, and similar forms, is so central to the teachings of the Kubjikā Tantras that it is identified with the Command of the Tradition (anvayājñā) that represents the entire content of the transmission. Accordingly, the goddess’s Kramamaṇḍala, the Saṃvartāmaṇḍala, is also commonly called Mudrāmaṇḍala and occasionally Mudrāpīṭha. Thus Mudrā is Saṃvartā, that is, the goddess herself who is the energy of the fire that consumes the worlds at the end of an aeon (kalpa) and burns in the centre of the maṇḍala.
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.
