Jayaśrī (जयश्री) refers to one of the “eight Goddesses that stand at the doors of the quarters”, 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, “One should worship them [i.e., the Goddesses of the seats] at each door (of the quarters). [...] Worshipped and installed they give extensive accomplishment. One should worship the eight goddesses accompanied by the guardians of the field. Jayā, Vijayā, Ajitā, Aparājitā, Jayantī, Jayalakṣmī, Jayaśrī, and Jayamaṃgalā: these are (their) secret names, revealed in the form of mantras. (These are the goddesses) who reside in the doors (of the quarters) and abide in the places of the primary and secondary doors along with the primary and secondary sacred seats, meeting grounds and fields”.
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.
