Gadgadā (गद्गदा) refers to “choking” [?], according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.25 (“The seven celestial sages test Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Naradā: “[...] Immediately on being remembered, the seven sages came there with faces beaming with delight and praising their good fate. Bowing to Him with folded arms and bent shoulders they eulogised lord Śiva with extreme pleasure by means of words choked [i.e., gadgadā] with devotional feelings”.

Gadgada (गद्गद) refers to “uttering”, according to Sāhib Kaul’s Śārikāstrotra.—Accordingly, “[...] He who recites after that syllable your name, Śārikā, followed by namaḥ, attains forever to that abode where, when reached, one never suffers again. I praise you; it is you in whom I take refuge. I serve the Goddess alone, the one power of all (powers). I utter (gadgada) my noisy stammering to you; I contemplate (you) who are everything, suitable for all, and everywhere. [...]”.
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.
