Avāptavat (अवाप्तवत्) refers to “having attained (another birth)”, according to verse 11.39-45 of the Kularatnoddyota, one of the earliest Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly, [as the Goddess addresses Ādinātha ]: “I have seen this unique miracle which inspires wonder. Thus, you have attained (avāptavat) another birth from the belly of the fish. This, your excellent spiritual emanation, is graced with the name Matsyendra and this will be your great fame on the surface of the earth. Beloved, this is your lineage which goes by the name Pūrvāmnāya. It is like the reflection of the Western path. Adorned with the six divisions Ānanda, Āvali (and the rest), it gives success”.
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.
