Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Bhogya (भोग्य) refers to the “object of enjoyment”, according to the Jayadrathayāmala verse 1.3.70ff.—Accordingly, “The imperishable and glorious energy (saṃbhūti) in the condition of the enjoyer (bhoktṛtva), the object of enjoyment (bhogya) and enjoyment (bhoga) (itself) in spiritual disciplines (sādhana) and the like is in every respect Bimbī, who is considered to be the eternal (nityā) Mother. And she is pure, attained through liberation. No association with impurity is perceived independently of her”.
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.
Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Bhogya (भोग्य) refers to “(that which is to be) experienced”, according to the Jayadrathayāmala, Ṣaṭka 1 verse 13.3–18::—Accordingly, “[...] Thus, the Ācārya should only purify the bad [karma]. Alternatively, [only] the impure path is purified, [so that] no experience comes about [in the impure universe]. [In other words] that [experience] does not have to be experienced (bhogya) [anymore in the impure universe] because it has already been experienced [through the process of initiation]. The soul [of the initiate] goes straight to the higher level (i.e. the pure universe). That is known to be the initiation called lokadharma, which leads to liberation. Such [an initiation] [is performed] when the past action has been destroyed, but the prārabdhakarma [is present], O loved one. [...]”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
