Bhāvamātrā (भावमात्रा) refers to “pure being”, according to the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “[...] They say the transmission (krama) is Śāmbhava from which all things come into being. The foundation (of practice) is the Accomplishment of Speech. The Command is impelled by Speech. (The Command is) Śāmbhavī who is pure Being (bhāvamātrā) and functions as two processes (dvikramā). (In her) extending (aspect) (prathā), she is Rudra’s energy and, within Being (bhāvabhūta), (the power) Śāmbhavī. (The former is) authority (adhikāra) and she bestows the qualities of purity. [...]”.
Note: It is the pure (mātra) practice of the Śāmbhava (state) that takes place (spontaneously) in due order (kramāt). (The Command is) Śāmbhavā established within Rudra’s energy of the individual soul (aṇu) and is within (all) states of being (bhāva) and things (bhūta).
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.
