Aparamārthika (अपरमार्थिक) refers to “that which is not the ultimate reality”, according to the Tantrāloka.—Accordingly, “Ultimate reality (paramārtha) shines even in this, the lower subject who is not the ultimate one (aparamārthika) as it does in the intellect, vital breath and the body—because the vital breath and the rest are not separate from the Light which is pure consciousness (cinmātra). By virtue of the freedom of that (reality, they all possess) two qualities; thus (although) they are insentient, they constitute the body of consciousness. [...]”.
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.
