Dvīpāntara (द्वीपान्तर) refers to “that which exists on an island”, according to the Ciñcinīmatasārasamuccaya (verse 1.1-2).—Accordingly, “The supremely pure Siddhanātha, who is all things, resides in the womb in the calyx of the lotus of the consciousness of the divine Sun. He brought down onto the Island of the Moon (candra-dvīpāntara) in the middle of the great ocean the supreme light of the consciousness of Ciñciṇī. I salute the venerable Kubjikā of the tradition of the Western Transmission who has emerged from the midst of that, piercing through the great Kula, within the worlds in the sky of the divine firmament, devouring (all things from) within the cavity of the circle of the lower worlds”.
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.
