Candragati (चन्द्रगति) refers to the “movement of the Moon”, according to the commentary on the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “Beginning from the first digit, that is the first day (of the first lunar fortnight), up to the first day of the second (lunar fortnight), there are sixteen (nights). Beginning with the first day of the second (fortnight), (the moon) wanes until the first day of the first (fortnight). Thus there are sixteen (lunar days). This is the movement of the Moon [i.e., candragati] and that of the Sun. These are the vowels. The two movements are life and death. These are also the parts (pada) that are located in the syllables of the sacred seats”.
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.
