Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Dinānta (दिनान्त) refers to the “end of the day”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “(The Śāmbhava yogi) has the authority (to perform the rites), knows the scripture and has a consort. [...] At the end of the day [i.e., dinānta] he should wander around in search of alms and eat the divine sacrificial pap. He is free of rebirth (gamāgama lit. ‘coming and going’) and has severed (the bonds of) doubt. All the universe consisting of (the triple impurity, namely) innate (mala), Karma and Māyā is all Māyā (i.e. false). It is said that everything should be abandoned. This is the meditation of those who desire (spiritual) fruit. (A yogi who practices this way) is naked, eats (the food he) begs and avoids the company of the fettered. He considers himself and others equally. (Such a one) is said to be a Śāmbhava yogi”.
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.
