Bhittvā (भित्त्वा) refers to “having pierced through (the divine plane of consciousness)”, according to the Ciñcinīmatasārasamuccaya verse 7.193cd-195.— Accordingly, “Once pierced through (bhittvā) the divine plane of consciousness which is attended by the Sun of Consciousness and, having melted it with the rays of consciousness and drunk the best of juices, (one attains) the Supreme Void, which is consciousness free of being and non-being. Within it is the juice of the essence which has expanded out of the Supreme Void. It is the field of one's own inner outpouring and is diversified by many kinds of wonderful diversity”.
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.
