Dyotita (द्योतित) refers to “that which is illuminated”, 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, “[...] I praise the (goddess) who enjoys (divine bliss) (bhoginī). Her body enjoyment (bhoga), she resides on the supreme plane (of existence) and is attained (only) by knowledge. Her plane is that of Kuṇḍalinī and her one (divine) attribute is compassion. [...] Accompanied by eight powerful Siddhas headed by (the Bhairava called) Aghora, (her) light shines a million-fold and, having destroyed (all) darkness, (she) has illumined all reality [i.e., dyotita-aśeṣatattvā]”.
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.
