Dṛṣṭipāta (दृष्टिपात) refers to the “gaze” (i.e., of the Goddess), according to Tantric texts such as the Kubjikāmata-tantra, the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “Penetrated (samāviṣṭā) by the bliss of the Command and aroused by the joy of the hymn (addressed to her), the great being said: ‘I do not know who is praising me here. To whom should I give a boon? My gaze (dṛṣṭipāta) is hard to behold like a venomous snake (āśīviṣa). How have (you been able to) bear it? Then ask for whatever you please!’”.
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.
