Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Bhuktvā (भुक्त्वा) (cf. Upabhuktvā) means “enjoyed”, according to the second recension of the Yogakhaṇḍa of the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “[...] Once the Lord of the gods, the Lord of the Lord of Passion had spoken thus, he desired union with the goddess by the power of the divine Command. Maheśvarī enjoyed [i.e., upabhuktvā] the sport of love and, in (her) eighth birth she enjoyed [i.e., bhuktvā] their mutual passion. [...]”.
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)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions
Bhuktvā (भुक्त्वा) refers to “having experience enjoyments” (of supernatural powers), according to the Svacchandatantra verse 4.141-145.—Accordingly, “[...] The other form [of bubhukṣu initiation] is the lokadharmiṇī, which destroys both past and future demerit. That lokadharmiṇī-dīkṣā is known to exclude the obligation to propitiate mantras [by means of purvasevā etc.]. However, when the current body breaks, [the candidate] experiences [the series of eight supernatural natural powers] starting with becoming very small. Having experienced (bhuktvā) [these] enjoyments he moves upwards to whichever [cosmic level] the Guru has joined him [by yojanikā]. Whether this is at the sakala or niṣkala level [of Śiva] depends on [the preference of] the candidate and Guru”.
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.
Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Bhuktvā (भुक्त्वा) refers to “taking food”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.41 (“Description of the Altar-Structure”).—Accordingly, as mount Himavat (Himācala) said to Nārada: “[...] Showing kindness to me you take your food (bhuktvā) and rest for a while. Then gladly accompany Maināka and others to Śiva’s presence. Accompanied by these mountains you request Śiva along with the gods, and the great sages, Śiva whose sproutlike feet are worshipped by gods and demons. Bring them here”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
