Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Darśin (दर्शिन्) refers to “one who explains”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—The Yogakhaṇḍa insists that the sacred seats should be honoured and respected as are the teacher and the scriptures. Knowledge of the seats and travelling to them is an essential characteristic of the teacher. More specifically, the teacher should not only know and explain the Krama (krama-darśin), he should also know this group of eight sacred seats. It is considered to be so fundamental by Yogakhaṇḍa (1) that the worship of it is listed as one of the characteristics of the Western Tradition
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 (philosophy)
Darśin (दर्शिन्) refers to “those who know (reality)”, according to the Nyāyamañjarī, vol. I, 326.—Accordingly, “[...] Among these [two types of inference,] who would not admit the validity of an inference such as that [of fire] from smoke? So [people] apprehend what is to be established [by such an inference] even though they are not pestered by logicians. But the validity of an inference regarding such [entities] as the Self, God, an omniscient or an afterlife is not acknowledged by those who know reality (tattva-darśin)”.
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.
Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)Source: academia.edu: A Study and Translation of the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā
Darśin (दर्शिन्) refers to “one who sees” (eg., ‘one who sees imperfections as a danger’), according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, as Gaganagañja said to Ratnapāṇi: “Son of good family, those sixty-four dharmas are included in one hundred twenty-eight dharmas. What are those one hundred twenty-four? [...] (25) love is included in faultlessness and not concealing one’s own mistakes; (26) having faith in the maturation of action is included in being careful in this life and seeing imperfections as a danger (avadyeṣu bhaya-darśin) for the next world; (27) little desire is included in properly grasping and not being satisfied with insight; (28) knowing satisfaction is included in being easily satisfied with food; [...]’”.
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings). Extant literature is vast and primarely composed in the Sanskrit language. There are many sūtras of which some of the earliest are the various Prajñāpāramitā sūtras.
