Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Gāmita (गामित) refers to “having reached (the other side of the ocean of bondage)”, 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, “These five Siddhanāthas are the lords of the universe. (They are) the Siddhas of the agency of emanation. They are the doors to heaven and have reached the other side (paraṃ-gāmita) (of the ocean of bondage). They have burst apart the limitless worlds of hell and are the only ones able to bestow liberation. They came down onto the venerable (mount) Kailāsa and, heating the lotus of phenomenal existence, shine with (their) radiant energy. I bow before these (Siddhas) constantly whose intellect is well versed in the Krama and are the descent (into the world) of all knowledge”.
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.
