Kākinyā (काकिन्या) refers to a “spark (of consciousness)”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra (Yogakhaṇḍa), a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “She moves in the middle of the Stone in an anticlockwise circle. The energy Vāmā, who is called Anantā (Endless) and the soul (jīva), is the ball of vital seed (kuṇḍagolakā). (Her) rotation is spherical, she is a spark (of consciousness) (kākinyā) and her form is Unstruck Sound (haṃsa)”.
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.
