Heyopādeya (हेयोपादेय) refers to “what is to be taken up and abandoned”, 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, [while expounding Kaula and the Nine Kaulas]—“Free of sound and touch, devoid of what is to be taken up and abandoned (heyopādeya-varjita), what exists and what does not, the Great Kaula, the Nameless, is free of the repetition of mantra and worship, meditation, and concentration”.
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.
