Yoga (school of philosophy)
Kāmarūpin (कामरूपिन्) refers to “one who can take on any form at will”, according to the Kaulajñānanirṇaya (17.36–38ab) which is attributed to Matsyendranātha, one of the supposed founders of Haṭhayoga.—Accordingly, “When one knows the self by the self, the self can take on any form at will [i.e., kāmarūpin]. Theself is the supreme deity. He by whom this is known is the king of yogins. He is said to be Śiva. He is clearly liberated and may liberate another. O goddess, he is always very pure, like a lotus in the mud. Having adopted a mortal body, he sports in the world as a Śiva”.
Yoga is originally considered a branch of Hindu philosophy (astika), but both ancient and modern Yoga combine the physical, mental and spiritual. Yoga teaches various physical techniques also known as āsanas (postures), used for various purposes (eg., meditation, contemplation, relaxation).
Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Kāmarūpiṇ (कामरूपिण्) (Cf. Kāmarūpiṇī) refers to “one who resembles passion”, according to the Lalitāsahasranāma.—Lalitā’s thousand names are eulogized in the Lalitāsahasranāma, describing the goddess’s spiritual beauty on the analogy of physical, sensuous beauty. [...] She embodies ultimate reality conceived as supreme bliss—ānanda. This bliss is embodied in her. It is the ‘passion that makes her eyes roll’ (lolākṣī-kāmarūpiṇī) (454). She is “the form of desire in women”. This is not the Advaitin’s ānanda, which is just a covert counter-correlate of Samsaric suffering (duḥkha), it is positive bliss generated by the union of opposites. She embodies the great play of intercourse between herself and her partner (mahārati) (218). Similarly, she is the Great Enjoyment (mahābhogā) (219). [...]
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.
