In Hinduism

Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)

Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (shaktism)

Iddha (इद्ध) refers to “(being) inflamed”, according to Sāhib Kaul’s Śārikāstrotra.—Accordingly, “[...] When the marvelous sun of true devotion to you rises, the lotus of my heart is inflamed through true emotion (sadrasa-iddha). In it always resides, out of respect, the good fortune of liberation that is coveted by all. Having attained the strength of true intelligence through Jñānasvāmin, I know what there is to know and everywhere contemplate my own self. I, Sāhib Kaula, have composed this hymn to the lineage deity Śārikā, which contains the construction of her Mantra. [...]”.
